THE STACK

Bob's Burgers #1, Dynamite Comics

All right! The very first Bob's Burgers comic book, a new series from the creator of the hit TV show, created by Loren Bouchard! Now you can read about the Belcher family in brand-new in-canon stories created by the TV show's producers, writers and animators creating all original stories appearing exclusively in this comics series.

THE GOOD: The term "spiritual successor" gets tossed around pretty easily. But this comic is most definitely a spiritual successor to the wildly popular FOX animated show. As big fans of Bob's Burgers, we got a lot out of this issue. There's so much continuity and fan service that really make this a gem for any fan out there, as well as a great introduction for anyone who hasn't seen the series yet.

THE BAD: We were a bit excited to see the art style after scoping out a few of the covers. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on whom you're asking), the interior art style does not change at all from its TV counterpart. We'd also love to see Linda and Bob's segments fleshed out a bit more, but being the first issue, we understand the desire to go with the fan-favorite Belcher kids.

FINAL RATING: 5/5 PEWS

EEPIN' IT REEL

As Above, So Below, Legendary Pictures

Miles of twisting catacombs lie beneath the streets of Paris, the eternal home to countless souls. When a team of explorers ventures into the uncharted maze of bones, they uncover the dark secret that lies within this city of the dead.

THE GOOD: The trailer for this movie was extremely misleading. Don't go in expecting a cheap scares horror movie. Rather, we hope you're as pleasantly surprised as we were with the solid plot and acting, as this group of explorers search for the fabled Philosopher's Stone in the catacombs beneath the streets of Paris. There is also some fantastic elements of Dante's Inferno here for those sharp to catch them... making the movie all the more enjoyable.

THE BAD: There was a great angle that was introduced, and that was these lost explorers "paying for their past sins". It's an interesting take, especially as the crew ends up in what we're lead to believe is Hell. But that angle is quickly dropped after about two deaths. Shame.

FINAL RATING: 4/5 PEWS
