A review of MULP: Sceptre of the Sun

MULP: Sceptre of the Sun is an all-ages anthropomorphic comic from Matt Gibbs and Sara Dunkerton. I thought I knew what I was getting into after reading just the first few panels.

He’s in no position to throw the shield. The new Captain America doesn’t have the Super Soldier Serum either. The new Captain America, the […]
