Have yet another batch of comic reviews all nicely tucked in a single post for your convenience. This way you don't need to hunt down individual videos or reviews, here you can watch ell the reviews of the main series from Issue 1# to Issue 26#.
You might be wondering why I'm not being snappy, or witty, and just plain informative. This is because I'm writing this at 3:45 am, after getting only two hours of sleep and with a shore shoulder due to excess of drawing goddamn cartoon horses. All for an article that probably just two or three people will read. Fucking hell, sometimes I wonder if even this little effort is worth it.
Have your comic reviews after the break!
These will be formatted the same way the reviews of the Micro Series were structured, so expect a small recommendation after the video followed by the best and worst part of it.
ISSUES 1# to 4# - THE RETURN OF QUEEN CHRYSALIS.
For those who want to relive the horrors of childhood.
Best Part: The unstoppable battery of pop-culture references.
Worst Part: The climax (though striking) feels a bit underwhelming.
ISSUES 5# TO 8# - NIGHTMARE RARITY.
