Dave's Rants Archive Homepage

Last Updated 9/1/16

All reviews copyright 2007-2016 by Dave Van Domelen


   This page holds an archive of my comic book reviews for the past few years. The originals are posted to rec.arts.comics.reviews on Usenet newsgroups, and some time between Wednesdays I throw in some minimal formatting and link the file in here. Most of the time these will be spoiler-free "Capsules", but once in a while I'll go whole-hog on a review.


Best Books of:
1996 | 1997 | 1998 | 1999
2000 | 2001 | 2002 | 2003 | 2004 | 2005 | 2006 | 2007 | 2008 | 2009
2010 | 2011 | 2012 | 2015

    A listing of what I considered to be the best comics of the last few years, these are all the titles that got a "Strongly Recommended" or better rating in my reviews at the time, with all the biases that implies. No entries for 2013 and 2014, since I didn't get a lot of books those years.


Recent Columns

    Comics of note (Strongly recommended or better, usually) will be in boldface, with an asterisk if they're Strongly Recommended. While most of my reviews are spoiler-free capsules, the occasional full review will be underlined. Categories of material are "Other Media" (not actually comics, but comics-related), Digital Comics, Trades and Graphic Novels. Any monthlies I still get will be in regular old black.

Rant Archives

    This is where older Rants will go to keep the main page from getting cluttered. Only the files from March 2007 onward will be here, but searching Google Groups for Dave, Rant and the title of the comic you're interested in will usually do pretty well, assuming I reviewed the book.
