I would recommend this title to supernatural fans and urban fantasy fans. I'm interested to see where this story goes and how the characters grow, as well as to see if the villains have any motivation outside of "I'm a demon and therefore evil."

Serenity: Leaves On The Wind #4

Apr 28, 2014

I'm hoping that any Firefly/Serenity fans would already be reading this series, but if you have somehow missed it, now is the time to go get the back issues and catch up. It's nice to see (most) of the crew all back together in this issue. We are also left with a number of cliffhangers where the stakes are extremely high for the crew of Serenity and their friends" or should I say, allies? You'll know why when you go get the book. Go! Seriously, go already. I need to talk about this with peoples!

Star Wars: Darth Maul: Son Of Dathomir #2

Jun 16, 2014

Unfortunately, we really wont see which way it goes until we get the next few issues, so Im having some trouble concretely defining this issue as one written well or not. I will definitely say the art is outstanding, and the writing has set up endless paths at its disposal but only time will tell if that potential is realized or not. If youve already picked up the first issue, I definitely recommend picking this up, as I tend to think of myself as a closet optimist. However, if youre behind and havent started the limited yet, hold off for now. The possibility for trite and shallow resolution is as real as any other outcome. In that case, Id suggest waiting to see some reviews once the limited has completed.

Star Wars: Legacy Vol. 2 #2

Apr 24, 2013

All that said, its not a bad issue two, but while I feel it is avidly working to keep momentum going rather than fall into the typical expositional method that second issues so often fall prey to, it ends up making a lot of action with little consequence or actual impact on the overall narrative. To be fair, I dont know what the overall narrative actually is, so this is all from a limited perspective, but, then again, continual progression is the key to episodic storytelling where the narrative doesnt become stagnant. Either way, its quite early in the series, and although I vehemently dislike the art style, its not a bad start. Personally, I love the way the Legacy universe was constructed back with the original Legacy release, so I will be continuing to read and see where Ania can take us.
