REVIEW: 'Oh S#!t It's Kim and Kim' #1 by Magdalene Visaggio, Eva Cabrera, and Claudia Aguirre

The Kims are back in another rousing space adventure. They're on a mission to retrieve a priceless piece of stolen art. Going undercover and maintaining a low profile has never been their strong suit so the chance of all hell breaking loose is almost a guarantee. Thank goodness!

$3.99 | full color | mature
Score: ★★★★★ (5/5)
I'm new to the world of Kim and Kim by Magdalene Visaggio and Eva Cabrera. I've been aware of it and it looked really cool from afar but never dived in and read it. Boy, was I a dope. It's a fantastic ride full of snappy dialogue and wild action. I should have been on board much sooner. Luckily, 'Oh S#!t It's Kim and Kim' #1 is totally accessible to new readers like me. 
No longer are Kim and Kim freelance bounty hunters. They've gone corporate and have to work in a much more structured and pro…

REVIEW: 'Hit-Girl' #6 by Jeff Lemire, Eduardo Risso, and Patricia Mulvihill

Jeff Lemire and Eduardo Risso continue their arc as Hit-Girl runs into a bit of a snag in the Great White North. With her foot caught in a bear trap and one bearing down on her, she'll have to rely on the kindness of a local mountain man.


HIT-GIRL #6    
Writer: Jeff Lemire Artist: Eduardo Risso, Patricia Mulvihill Letterer: Clem Robins Editor: Rachael Fulton Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: July 25, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score:  ★★★★1/2 (4.5/5)

In the last issue, Lemire took Hit-Girl to his home country, the land of maple syrup, hockey, and Celine Dion. She was hunting Billy the drug dealer and though she got her man a bear trap got her. She's saved by a grizzled old man who lives in a nearby cabin and off the grid. It's quite the culture shock for Mindy. Meanwhile, Billy's drug lord father has come to town looking for him and is ready to put a bullet in her. Mindy is wounded, outnumbered, and running out of time.

Writer: Joe Henderson Artist: Lee Garbett, Antonio Fabela Letterer: Simon Bowland Editor: Rick Lopez, Jr. Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: July 18, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
After a controversial confrontation in the last issue, Willa races home to warn her father about Barrow's plan. Her dad may or may not know how to reverse the loss of the earth's gravity but Barrow isn't about to lose his fortune in letting him try. In Willa's attempt to help her dad overcome his fear of floating away she unknowingly sets off a series of events that have put her family in danger including the kidnapping of a friend. Now, she feels obligated to fix it all but how can she?

Ever since Barrow revealed himself to be vicious and selfish by his disturbing (and unnecessary) use of violence against Willa, she's lost her air of i…
