Sir Jon Reviews – Your Black Friend

It’s been a few weeks since I read Ben Passmore’s YOUR BLACK FRIEND, a one-shot comic book that I couldn’t pass on ordering when it was solicited through AdHouse Books some months back. I’ve always enjoyed slice-of-life comics, especially done-in-one tales similar to Damon Hurd’s work like MY UNCLE JEFF. I gave YOUR BLACK FRIEND Read More

Rise of the Dungeon Master – A Review

It’s hard to say when Gary Gygax affected me the most. I recall marveling over his alliterative name, wondering how it was pronounced, if it was real, and if it was, if he liked it. I thought ‘Gygax’ was cool, myself. It wasn’t any surprise to me then, when variations on the name popped up Read More

State of the Industry – February 2016

February sales in the comic book market are traditionally slow, with 2016 continuing that (trend) as numbers dipped to lows not seen in nearly a year. Only three titles topped 100k for the month, though a fourth came so close it may as well be considered an even 100 thousand. Marvel dominated the top ten Read More

Sir Jon’s Comic Book Review – Sandman Overture

The collected edition of the six-issue mini-series SANDMAN: OVERTURE was released in late 2015, to a relieved readership.

A Novel Review: Made to Kill

It isn’t often that a book catches me with its cover, but Adam Christopher’s Made to Kill did just that. Two dimensional art deco of a robot in a trenchcoat and fedora? You better believe I’d check that out. Published by Tor Books late last year, Made to Kill tells the story of Raymond Electromatic, Read More

Sir Jon’s Comic Book Review – Swamp Thing #1

DC Comics have done little to attract my attention as a reader since the inception of their “New 52” Universe, which drove me away in ways my similes and metaphors cry about. Some things, mostly from their withered Vertigo line of titles, find me interested, if I’m not at least skimming them. A few ideas Read More

Star Wars: the Force Awakens – a From the Hip Review

For the first official movie review at this page, I’ll need to make a few comments up front. Firstly, the humongous amount of hype for this film nearly destroyed any interest in seeing it until the majority had forgotten it was out. Secondly, I truly had no interest in reviewing it, or even spending more Read More
