Quick Thoughts On Thor’s Re-Casting

Quick Thoughts On Thor’s Re-Casting @Marvel

Marvel has recently revealed that they are changing the gender of Thor. The new Thor series coming out in October has Thor as a girl instead of a man.

REVIEW: The Last Fall #1 @IDWPublishing

Writer: Tom Waltz
Artist: Casey Maloney
Colorist: Dusty Yee
Publisher: IDW Publishing

I had no idea what to expect from the first issue of Devilers or if it was going to be able to appeal to me, but after a few reads it does show promise. It definitely had that gritty lo-fi indie comic vibe to it and undoubtedly it comfortably falls into…
