The Terminator: Enemy of My Enemy 4 (July 2014)

It’s all action but it’s all very good action. I kept waiting for Jolley to slow down and explain some things but he never takes his foot off the gas. He’s missing character… Continue reading

The Terminator: Enemy of My Enemy 3 (May 2014)

Seriously? They team up. A human and a Terminator team up in a Dark Horse comic? Didn’t I read this comic many times as a teenager? I was kind of hoping for something… Continue reading

Bloodhound: Crowbar Medicine 5 (March 2014)

I guess the sidekick hero’s name should have been a hint. It’s a good issue. Real violent, real mean at times. Jolley even manages to get past the sidekick hero being really, really… Continue reading

The Terminator: Enemy of My Enemy 2 (March 2014)

Okay, the structure confuses me. I think the issue opens and then goes back to an early time and stays there but it also seems like maybe it continues the time from the… Continue reading

The Terminator: Enemy of My Enemy 1 (February 2014)

Dan Jolley and Jamal Igle doing a Terminator series. You know what you get? A decent plot, good characters, some awesome art. The way Jolley and Igle are doing Enemy of My Enemy… Continue reading

Bloodhound: Crowbar Medicine 4 (February 2014)

Here’s what the problem is with the art on Crowbar Medicine–I remember the original series’s art. Bloodhound isn’t an easy book to forget. It was a crazy attempt from DC and it had… Continue reading

Bloodhound: Crowbar Medicine 3 (December 2013)

Crowbar Medicine continues to have its art problems. Neither Kirk nor Riggs seems willing to put in a lot of detail. This issue they hit over fifty percent on that lack of detail,… Continue reading

Bloodhound: Crowbar Medicine 2 (November 2013)

Kirk and Riggs rush a few too many panels this issue. Not so many the art isn’t good overall, but there’s a definite–and unfortunate–hurried feel to the comic. And, since there’s no fast… Continue reading

Bloodhound: Crowbar Medicine 1 (October 2013)

Bloodhound is definitely back and it might be better than ever. Having Leonard Kirk and Robin Riggs on the art, which has nothing to do with Dan Jolley’s excellent way of plotting the… Continue reading

Bloodhound 10 (June 2005)

Thank goodness, Kirk is back for this issue, which is unfortunately the last one. Jolley wraps up a little–he got the Agent Bell backstory into the issue unexpectedly–but only what he absolutely has… Continue reading

Bloodhound 9 (May 2005)

Eddy Barrows takes over the pencils. Kirk’s absence is definitely Bloodhound’s loss. About the only thing Barrows does right is show Clev as a giant. Otherwise, he’s mediocre. Except maybe his panel composition;… Continue reading

Bloodhound 8 (April 2005)

Jolley skips ahead a little, giving Clevenger practically a superhero outfit–a special Kevlar shirt, I think–and a little more freedom. Jolley uses Clev’s ex-girlfriend to reveal the information. It’s a nice little device,… Continue reading

Bloodhound 7 (March 2005)

Kirk tries out a different style for this issue’s extended flashback. I get it’s supposed to be folksy–the flashback takes place on a farm–but it lacks personality. It’s one of those awful farm… Continue reading

Bloodhound 6 (February 2005)

Putting Clevenger back in prison proves a good choice for Jolley. He plots it to put Clev out of his comfort zone, which creates some drama on its own, then Jolley amps it… Continue reading

Bloodhound 5 (January 2005)

Jolley writes Firestorm better in this comic than he does in his own title. Maybe because the Bloodhound stuff just runs off. It’s actually a rather successful crossover issue between two books without… Continue reading

Firestorm 7 (January 2005)

What’s wrong with this art? Liam Sharp pencils, Andy Lanning inks, and the result is a mess. Figures change sizes, faces don’t maintain any continuity. It’s an ugly comic. The issue’s a mess… Continue reading

Bloodhound 4 (December 2004)

It’s the conclusion to the first arc–and an astoundingly bloody one–but also the origin issue. Jolley’s able to work in some background information on Clev, which probably provides the issue with most of… Continue reading

Bloodhound 3 (November 2004)

For lack of a better phrase, one could call this issue the “eureka” issue. Clev and his partner–Agent Bell–do their investigating and realize what they need to realize. Jolley’s able to make it… Continue reading

Bloodhound 2 (October 2004)

I like a lot of this issue. Jolley opens it well, the middle part is good, most of the ending is good. He goes out on a joke, which doesn’t work, but there’s… Continue reading

Bloodhound 1 (September 2004)

Bloodhound takes a while to get bloody. It has to get bloody–most of the issue takes place during a prison riot with the lead characters trying to survive to the exit. When the… Continue reading

Dark Horse Comics 16 (December 1993)

I feel like I need to send Dan Jolley a thank you letter for making this issue of Dark Horse Comics tolerable. Well, for his Aliens story anyway. It’s got an unexpected conclusion.… Continue reading

Dark Horse Comics 15 (November 1993)

Well, when Naifeh’s art falls off, The Thing gets a lot less interesting. Martin falls into the same tropes the pervious series did (even though Martin ignores them)—repeating the plot points in the… Continue reading
