I have a review of Image's Captain Wonder 3D #1 in this week's Las Vegas Weekly and a review of Boom's Dracula: The Company of Monsters Vol. 1 at Blog@Newsarama. They are not very good, and pretty good, respectively.

I've pretty harshly reviewed work from Captain Wonder artist Philip Tan here on EDILW before, so I suppose I should note that the one-shot represented the very best work from him I've seen to date—although it is kind of tricky to read the 3D sometimes, and his style, while fine for the superhero bits, seems tonally wrong for what would otherwise be a solid kids' adventure comic (Also, he draws little girls pretty weird).

I was a bit surprised by the strength of that Dracula book, as the premise seemed a bit one-note. I'm not sure how long they can keep it going and keep it engaging, but I found it quite entertaining.

Anyway, enough previewing my reviews. Go give LVW and Blog@ your clicks, please.
