‘The Boys’ Season 1 Advanced Review

The Boys is an adaptation of Garth Ennis’ deconstruction of the superhero genre.

‘Swamp Thing’ Advanced Review

*This is a spoiler-free advance review of episodes one and two of DC Universe’s Swamp Thing* Regardless of what one may think of DC’s streaming service, it does offer creators an outlet to tell more experimental stories using established characters.
