A Piggys Tale #1

Apr 16, 2014

From just one issue, you can see the lessons building up. The comic is trying to get across some real ideas. It is nice to read a truly all-ages title. I felt like I haven't seen one in forever. I could see young and old getting into the ins and outs that face these two heroes. I think all people should have the chance to see what an animal can give them. Luckily for me, my parents loved animals too, so I was always crying when I ran over the ants with my bike. (I don't like to mention it). But it taught me a lot about what you can do for a helpless creature, and taught me even more what these helpless creatures can do for you.

A Piggys Tale #3

Oct 15, 2014

I couldn't see any kid not falling for this pub and his sidekicks. It is a story about love with some awesome hero aspects through on top of it. I get excited to see Piggy's new adventure every month. So you better catch up with this gang this week, because you are missing out on some animals and one punk chick fighting crime on the streets of New York and beyond.

A1 #6

Nov 13, 2013

All of the art in this series should be recommended. It is amazing to see how crisp all three stories can be. Titan has done a great job with this series, and I look forward to seeing Carpe and Odyssey unfold. Willows is nice too, but I could do without the slow movement. I still don't really get the theme of this one.

Apocalypse Al #3

Apr 2, 2014

All in all, I was satisfied with my first read of the comic. It was lots of fun seeing these supernatural devices in Al's world. I will come back for more. And I am not going to line, there is a big cliffhanger at the end of this comic. I am sucker for cliffhangers. It is a problem. But with this series, I am investing enough to see where it takes us. If you are thinking this week is slow with comics, then pick up something new. I am suggesting Apocalypse Al.

Apocalypse Al #4

May 7, 2014

Overall the premise is interesting. I mean saving the world every damn day has got to be cool and probably good pay. Plus Al is a good female lead for the storyline. She has got that punk rocker look with all the right curves to catch the eye of any human. I hope when we see Al again, she can bring in all the right moves and finish strong.

Arcadia #2

Jun 3, 2015

When you can spend $3.99 on a comic and know that it is worth the full price and that you won't just read it one time and throw it in some pile, then you have got an awesome story that deserves more credit than it is getting. Arcadia is brilliant. I continue to think about the questions this comic raises through the night. Paknadel has got something special here and I am digging every word of it.

Arcadia #3

Jul 1, 2015

Arcadia has come out blazing with its first three issues. You can't go wrong with Paknadel's plot. There is a great science fiction story unfolding here that many will enjoy. The ending or even the next issue is so unclear that you can't help but intrigued with everyone's story.

Arcadia #4

Aug 12, 2015

I have no complaints about this comic. I also think that the story is more real than any other futuristic story out there. And Paknadel focuses on it all without getting lost. He shows us the emotional side of a family while dealing with the social changes in the United States. I look forward to every single issue and you should too, because damn this is getting real.

Astronauts in Trouble #1

Jun 17, 2015

I don't think I will be suggesting this comic any time soon. I don't think Larry Young is a bad writer at all. Quite the opposite actually. What I think happened was a bad choice on my part. I had no backstory on the comic, and not being a particularly knowledgeable person of the 50s, I was lost one panel in. I would say pick this comic if you are a Young fan. Otherwise, grab something else week.

Awake #1

Sep 16, 2015

Overall, I couldn't see people turning this comic away. It is cute but still has a good story to tell. The characters, although some aren't human, symbolize so much more. I can't wait to see how Benville reveals more of these worlds and how Hess gives us more magic.

Ballistic #2

Sep 11, 2013

I really have to hand it to this comic, because it is just plain weird" with all the right weirdness. Darick Robertson's art is perfect for this series too. He really put Repo City right in your face. The comic doesn't try to explain everything about this world, and here it works; keeping me entertained with this new city that is unlike anything I have seen. Am I lost? Well hell yes, but I couldn't imagine a more creative world to be sucked into.

Ballistic has a lot in store. This issue alone had so many plot changes I only scratched the surface with my review. I know this line is lame as fuck, but don't take my word for it and seriously start reading this comic. There is a lot going on, so it is best to jump on board now and enjoy the awesomeness that I have enjoyed for three issues now.

Ballistic #5

Jun 19, 2014

Back to the plot, the story is huge with action this week. Butch and the now changed Gennie are going into Biopower. What they discover is that their plan must get a little more complicated after what they see. Butch takes a drastic measure and tries his best to fight them off. Man I just love every second of this month's issue. The action is crazy, Butch is off the chain, and of course Gun has some good shots and shoot ups. Definitely a comic worth reading in a hell yeah kind of moment.

Ben 10 #1

Nov 20, 2013

All and all, the audience for this comic is a little younger than I accepted. It may be that cutoff point where it isn't fun for me to read anymore. I dig more creative routes when speaking to the younger generation. I did like how Ben 10 offered something I just harked about in my TMNT Animated Adventures review though; the story is ongoing through multiple issues. This is a smart move, giving kids the opportunity to beg for more the next title having to know what happens next. I'll have to give it some more tries to really see if the comic gets cleverer, but for now it just seemed like more merchandise being pushed out.

Ben 10 #2

Dec 19, 2013

But both groups face a bigger threat; Ssserpent. This snake dude has a snake's head and Fabio's body. It is quite amazing and also not someone to mess with. I believe the crews will come together in order to take down these slithering serpents seizing the seas. But again, I also think Terrapisciss has something to hide. I just hope Lorelai isn't involved with all this madness.

Blackout #2

Apr 30, 2014

I can't get over these clear missing links. Blackout has got some work cut out for him to make me want more. My mark is now three issues. If I can't get hooked in three consecutive issues, any spot in the series, and fall in love then I am out. Blackout doesn't have anything bigger the surface right now. Dive into Bob's death or big corporations. Hell even rob a bank for your own selfish needs, but stay on point with the plot and I will be back.

Blackout #3

Jun 5, 2014

I really don't know if I will be back for this mini series' wrap up. It will take a complete 180 for me to get into the story. I keep wanting it to work, but I think my hopes have run dry. My hope is that Blackout can deliver on all surfaces. Go back to Mechatronics and have Scott literally live there. He can search files, using his brains, and then attack bad dudes with his suit, all while saving the company and discovering the truth behind Bob. It could be anything, Bob is dead or held captive for his ideas. The suit's ultimate goal is jump into times and change the past and predict the future to put some D-bag in charge. Anything could work. And then pile all that with kick butt action through the portals. So much could be done, but it needs a start. Give me the 180 I want.

Blackout #4

Aug 13, 2014

Blackout, which I am sure will offer a lot in the next go around, fell short in its first micro. Without reading this series, you will have no trouble catching up when the next story comes out. I just think that comics need to hit with a bang right from the start. I know that some comics can build up these amazing pieces all to be revealed slowly, but lately if a comic can't hit you with something then there is no point in starting to read it. Either a huge plot secret needs to come out or a subtle hint of reveals that unfold answers along with questions" questions we need to know the answer to. Blackout couldn't do that for me with these four issues. Take a chance on the next installment, but be aware that the first doesn't offer much than surface area.

Bloodhound: Crowbar Medicine #1

Oct 16, 2013

This totally means more work for Clev and Saffron. And I'll be damned if this Bradley guy doesn't have something to do with the first superhuman we met. I was impressed with this comic bringing in some familiar plot lines but adding some key elements to freshen it up. I liked it and will have to come back to finish the mini-series. Plus, I have said this before, but mini-series are such a quick snap that is hard to just stop reading one even if it sucks. And since this one caught my eye, I want to see how Clev turns out and learn more about his troubles.

Bloodhound: Crowbar Medicine #2

Nov 13, 2013

Sounds to me that we are meeting some key new players. We haven't gotten a huge exposure to the superhumans yet, so I am think Perry will take on that role. We also don't know how this stuff works or the side effects; again Perry's role. Our new superhuman in a mask will be different since Clev is so out there. He is a good guy, but so not a mask type of person. The differences in characters will be weird to see unfold.

Bloodhound: Crowbar Medicine #4

Jan 29, 2014

Towards the end we get into a battle between Clev and Saffron against some superhumans. It is cool to see it unfold, but these superhumans don't really mean anything. Once you read it this will make sense. The whole anticipation of the issue is not developed quite as well I was hoping. I was hoping for some confrontation with Morgenstern or the agencies. So the 4th installment of this series left me high and dry. Hopefully for the last issue, we can get down and dirty with Clev and Morgenstern. It should lead to some discoveries and maybe even Clev siding with the Doctor.

Broken World #2

Jul 1, 2015

Barbiere has a great story at hand. It has lots of different ways it can go. And almost has this survival of the fittest appeal. You really want to see where Elena goes next. I find myself after one issue attached to her. I haven't even met her family, so it does seem odd of why they are not in the picture. Maybe they chose to live without her. You would like to think that she is doing all this work for them that maybe her husband is fighting hard for her. But something makes me think there is more to this family and definitely more to Elena.

Broken World #3

Aug 5, 2015

All in all, Broken World has good elements coming together for this post-apocalyptic Earth. But the real star is Elena's story. I think you could have thrown her in any situation and following her story would still be intriguing. So you have to give credit for creating an awesome main character. My only fear is that with the apocalyptic vibe, many readers may fade out of this comic because of the overdone premise. I am hoping that Elena can carry the readers through this mini-series and make us forget about the setting.

Broken World #4

Sep 2, 2015

Again the art was cool, but I wish the story didn't have to rush through the ending. We could have explored some other things or even hyper focused on Elena and her family. I hope that Elena's character can shine through into another piece of work, because she had a good story and good motives, but she needed a push with plot and overall reader connection.

Clive Barker's Next Testament #2

Jul 4, 2013

I love this comic because it offers a new end of the world story. I don't know what Wick's true intentions are, but I think he is pissed at the humans and wants them to not follow his word, if his word becomes clear, but rather follow truth. Wick is the most honest character and if anything should tell you about his word it should be his actions. So I assuming that truth will be the key.

Elspeth and Tristan escape to find answers. They grab the first flight out. Wick is left at the house with the cops approaching. He is exciting for the challenge ahead, as am I. This comic offers something new. It takes an idea and turns into something completely different. Although the comic only took place over an hour or so, you have to ask yourself not what happened but what didn't happen here? It is jam packed with action and issues about what will happen. I don't know if everyone will dig this comic, but you should jump on now because it is about to get crazy. Next issue should be a whirlwind of events. Some people's lives are on the line and Julian may have something to say before the day is through.

It still is crazy how little this comic does in an issue, but the massive amount of things it has to say. I would love to pick Clive Barker's brain on the comic and get some sort of insight to where we are heading. I guess I shouldn't say where we are headed, because the people in this comic are headed for death. That I am certain, but how we get there is the real question.

I really just can't get enough of this comic. I fly through the issue every time. And every time I am hoping for more pages of brilliance. This week, it was a tad slow, but I think it was necessary in order to make sure the reader is real focused for the next one. God has some mighty plans up his sleeves, and Tristan is about to get himself in some very deep doo-doo with Pastor Sam.

Dec 18, 2013

Honestly, God's magic has taken me in this series as well. I love reading this issue and always save it for last when reviewing it. It is my treat at the end of the day. The comic is short and packs a powerful punch all about God and his beliefs. I find it cool too that God suddenly is naked in this issue revealing all of his colors. The art is just beautiful to look at. The way God is this encompassing color wheel and focal point of the comic is pretty cool. I think next issue will bring a lot together for the series as well. Tristan and Elspeth are eventually going to run into God and Julian. It will be entertaining to see how Tristan and Julian's relationship will be when they see each other again. I hope this comes next issue, because the couple has been on the road a lot. It is time for them to come face to face.

With Next Testament having three issues left, we are starting to see some serious build up. This issue, like the last, didn't have much action but tons of anticipation. Although this issue did have more to say with the relationships between our main characters. God and Julian have some real passion between them… but you will have to read the issue in order to see if it is good or bad. I think there will be a lot more said with issue #10. I can't help but jump the gun on this series, because it is that good.

Jun 18, 2014

The whole comic flips between the two stories and brings very high anxiety. As one group tries to stop God, he is getting closer and closer. And I don't think I have to say that the ending is so insane, but I will. You thought Clive Barker wasn't going to go there or that it would be a huge cliffhanger, but he goes there. And now I am even more anxious to see what happens next. Barker and Miller have brought about one of my favorite comics. They manage to build up an ending in 10 issues thus far and still make the story highly engaging. That's what great writers do.

Jul 16, 2014

I really don't know what will happen in the end. The last issue will be explosive. God has some work ahead of him if he wants to end everyone, and the other two like any hero have their weaknesses that God prys on. I think what I love about this issue the most is the other two gods' demire. They haven't spoken a word which speaks a lot. God is talking the whole time. It shows a difference in their characters. God has to speak because he is weak. He has ideas that no one is listening too. The other two will only speak with their actions. As for Tristan and Elspeth, I am nervous to see what happens to them. They have been the rock through all of this series. Readers cannot help but get totally stoked for the conclusion of this comic. With so many big things happening, I know it will end just as awesomely as it began.

Clive Barker's Next Testament #12

Aug 13, 2014

The comic ends with Tristan and Elspeth and I won't tell you exactly how their story ends, but instead what I want to comment on is how Tristan looks at the end. His hair is different, his face is almost ghostly, the silhouette picture could mirror another character, and the last pictures seen of him show these rainbow colors. All this wrapped up only makes me think of God. Now I am not saying that Tristan is God, but I think a lot is being said with these final pages. You can judge it for yourself, because it can be taken some different ways or not even noticed. It does however comment on the fact of how connected everything was in this story. So again, just a great way to end this comic through and through. It still amazes me how quick this series went but the impact it had. Next Testament will always tell that great story I can keep coming back to.

The last outer layer flashes to the two monsters from the beginning. You can't actually tell who the non-speaking shadow is. He looks more human-like than the rest, but the comic reveals his identity at the end. I loved it. Some might think it shouldn't take two issues to introduce a main character, but Nightbreed has all the right elements to do such a thing. Barker has another awesome comic on his hands. I am a returning fan of his work, and with Next Testament wrapping up, I think I found my new comic fix is with Nightbreed.

Oct 22, 2014

Nightbreed has gotten slower over the past couple of issue. They are pulling out big stories, and yet I still don't feel fulfilled. I think the problem is having all these background stories with no interaction between Boone and the other characters. I want to see Boone in action. We literally know nothing about him. We will see more of him next issue, as for #7 promises some background on Boone, but is it too late? If Nightbreed doesn't hit me in the gut with Boone's story, then I may be long gone from this series before it even picks up. With only six issues out, Nightbreed is quickly fading out for me. I hope we can pick up some momentum in our next issue.

Nightbreed delivered on the art this week, but the story lacked some movement.

Oct 8, 2014

I am a big proponent of checking out as many comics as possible. I can't say I read them all but just glancing through or even looking at covers makes me aware of what is happening. Anyway, I think the Danger Girl series is one of those comics you just need to pick up every once in a while and check in on it. And if there is any issue you should pick, it should always heavily involved Abbey. She is the best Girl. Although you may like others, Abbey really does bring it home for this comic. She has it all and with every mission, it is clear to see why she is a leader. So we have a ton of Abbey and some insane backdrops with undercover drama, yeah this is totally the issue you should get!

Kilbourne has just as much fun as Abbey. These two make good counterparts in the series. I almost wish the next issue would revolve around Kilbourne and her pursuit/purpose for the case. Of course the outfits for her are perfect. She has a huge tattoo running down her entire body, and dressed in all black leather. Abbey has the typical blue jeans and short white shirt on. It gives off the impression of good vs. evil. The fight between these two is going to get even bigger, I don't know how, but it will. Also, with Deuce coming into play too, it all should lead up to a kickass finale.

The girls and Deuce don't exactly know how to control this thing. Abbey is blindly leading her team through this mission. This seems to be a bit of foreshadowing on the series but who knows. I do hope they bring this whole case back since it has added some awesomeness to the series. Plus some stories didn't exactly end. Such as Asia not succeeding, Deuce's boss not coming back and yep we still don't know what the hell this case is. Sorry guys. All I have to say is that this story will bring you back into being a Danger Girls fan if not just for 4 issues. Every moment was stressful with the chase, and the focus on Abbey and Asia's conflict brings some great action. It will not disappoint.

I think the problem is if I wanted to read a Valiant comic, why wouldn't I just pick up with X-O Manowar or Archer, instead of reading a mini-series with very little substance. It didn't add anything to the other stories, and I didn't find it more funny or more artistically pleasing than other titles. So I guess it just leave the reader and myself at this confusion level. A confusion that will lead readers away.

Edgar Allan Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher #1

May 15, 2013

The story leaves us at a cliff hanger of why Madeline died. Also, we get a little hint about who the narrator may be. Then the comic gives us some art and some explanations for the art. When reading about the painting it stated that this story is a combination of Poe’s Usher story and “The Oval Portrait.” It made a little bit more sense of the story line, but maybe that should have been a forewarning. I understand that the comic can create something more than what Poe did, but I think I prefer Poe’s story better. The imagination is what makes it so unique and this comic lacked that of what our minds can create.

Pixel knows about it all, but the stress of her mother in her prison is stressing her out the most. See the comic folds in these very real human experiences with some kick-butt hero fun. Although this issue only opened the door to the story arc, I can't wait to see where we go with it. With Moore's storytelling and Gus Storms' art, we know our reading will be filled with some hero action while still getting some punches in.

Ehmm Theory #2

May 24, 2013

If I haven’t sold you on this comic then still just start reading it. The whole Action Lab: Danger Zone is a pretty interesting line. Brockton McKinney’s story has some great elements and each issue will ensure an amusing action packed fight between Gabe and all the dimensional mutants. But don’t be fooled by Ehmm Theory’s perceived cover because there is a real story under all the fun which makes your mind explode into an all-out enjoyment factory.

Honestly, if I say anything else about this issue it gives away lots of information, so just go pick up the damn thing. When reading it you feel like two total fanboys decided to make a comic. They threw in everything that is loved by other fanboys and made a cohesive story out of the whole thing. So it is pure genius and gives that average comic dude the feeling that their ideas came to life.

All and all this issue is probably the most "boring" out of the four. If you can call a bear having tentacles, travelling through different dimensions, and mullets boring, but yeah I think it was a change of pace. For only having four issues out, I think audiences can really settle into Ehmm Theory now. The expectations are high for these guys to always deliver punch, so if they can keep that up the reader will be ready.

Executive Assistant: Assassins #9

Mar 21, 2013

The story really isn't developing. I don't even understand Mazutsu. Sure he wants all these girls dead and he is an arms dealer, reason enough to kill him, but the comic never shows us why he wants these girls dead or his dealings. I would prefer more of a back story since I am suppose to hate this man, but at the moment I can see why he wants to kill the assassins. The story just isn't a story for me. It is a comic of half-naked woman poorly defending their womanhood. And every fight scene is like watching a bad lesbian porno (and this should NOT turn you on).

This comic directly speaks to its readers. It is a hilarious look into the fanboy life style and how fanboys would react to a zombie attack, with humor. I am always looking out for nerd culture posted in the background the comic too. It is great how they put so much detail into one panel. Please read this comic, for the simple fact that is funny. I don’t know how the story will develop into a long series though. The story line somehow just keeps flowing. Either way I haven’t started skimming through this comic so reason enough to stay hooked in my mind.

I am sure this comic will get into all of that, since it already has, but I appreciate the break from the same old zombie story. Sometimes, I feel like my reviews mean nothing" ha, but today I felt like I was heard when the Wrecking Crew made its comeback. I almost stopped reading this comic!

This is how the two, Walt and Joe, meet up. The comic ends with a pretty sweet battle scene between the Nazi’s, Joe, and Walt. Since Joe has the power to make men fall in love with her, Walt is taken back by her. I absolutely love how this comic ends. The last line, told by our narrator, shows the struggles that Joe faces and her need to fill her life with companions. Fatale keeps reeling me in with every new piece of information…and I can’t say that I fighting the line.

The last couple of stories all follow Lance's roommates. Skip, Jon, and Tom all have an obsession with Jo. They are trying to hide it for Lance. Their stories are all different, so it wasn't boring to read. I have no idea where this issue will go but most of the times these stories end with a lot of blood. So I am guessing some people will die. It isn't too hard to guess. What is harder is why Jo has turned evil in my mind. I think it is because she is fucking up a group of friends for what gain. The comic makes it looked like she is doing it in order to get the band back, but how many issues am I going to justify her before I realize that she is trouble.

Hands down, I would have to say that Fatale is my favorite comic out right now. It showcases everything I love about mystery reading. If this were a movie I would say that Jo was casted on point in every aspect, but to think that she is just a character from a comic is an even greater compliment to how well-built she is. This issue proves my point exactly, and I love when a comic can build up to the hype I give it.

This comic is just brilliant. Each new issue has something to offer. The comic perfectly balances out the mystery, sex, lust, and action. As a reader, you just can't seem to get enough of Jo and all her glory. She is disturbing with all her femme fatale happening, but so tantalizing you can't help but feel like one of the characters being drawn into her ever will. The next issue should really hit home once Jo realizes all she can do. The comic shows a small glimpse of a huge reveal as well. It will change the game and will be interesting how the comic plays this out. It could go in so many directions, let me know if you catch it.

The whole 90s era really ends with a bang, so make sure to finish out this story line. I have said it before, but it really has been my favorite. In the next couple of issues, I am hoping the story looks into more of the cult aspect of Jo. Since her amnesia, we haven't seen so much of the religious side of the comic. I have to say this part scares but intrigues me the most. And obviously I am hoping to find more out about her, but I will not get my hopes up.

Last time we saw Nicolas, he discovered that this crazy old man he was with is actually Lance from our past story. Lance seems anything but normal, but then again he has met Jo. Along with Jo, some of these guys' stories are touching, and you can't help but feel bad for these misfortunes. Lance is one of those guys. Although he is crazy now, he wasn't before. He stumbled upon Jo when she had no idea who she was. He fell hard and neither of them understood his unconditional love for her. I just hope that since Nicolas will now be our main guy in Jo's life, he can stay sane and fingers crossed that he can stay alive.

As the end is coming near, I am exciting to see how this epic tale ends. Although I don't think Fatale will ever really end. There is still much to be done. But even if we get another story or not, I still think Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips have put together what I like to call my favorite freakin' comic. The narrative has taken the readers to lots of places and back again. Jo just has that control over everyone. With only two issues left, everything will put on the line for this final battle. Honestly, I don't even know who will win. Maybe somehow Bishop and Jo will die, but maybe for Jo that will be a win. Who knows. All I know is that I am going to be there bright eyed and ready to take in whatever Brubaker and Phillips throw at us.

Our writer, Mike Heimos, and artist, Nick Runge, bring a truthful insight into the Pacific war. When we think of World War II we tend to think about Germany and the movies surrounding this area or you think of Ben Affleck marrying his best friend’s knocked-up girlfriend. Either way we don’t jump on the difficulties of these soldiers in a new area fighting far from home and the main war zone.

IDW has a real winner for me this week. I couldn't get enough of this first issue, and really just wanted to keep reading it. The comic just felt elevated from any first issue I have read recently. My only negative point hits with explaining a lot of detail right away. The story is just an explanation piece of Hopetown. The creators did a good job of covering this up by having the whole Councilman Mason introduction be incorporated into the comic itself. During an explanation issue, the talking seems so forced. With Gateway, the talking is all part of Jake's initiation into his new life…or death.

Maybe we could follow Jessica around too. Also, we could follow Mason and see what the deal is with his plans. It would be nice to intertwine these characters that we get to know. And even if we keep up with Freedom Town, then what was the point to get introduced to the Hopetown? It all just doesn't make sense. I can't give up on the series quite yet.

The only downfall of this comic was the intense information shoved at the readers. I would suggest reading up on the story before diving in because it has tons of layers that you don't get just from the comic. I would have loved more time spent on the layers of plot and the understanding of the future. The comic quickly became very wordy, so I think the first issue could have been broken into two and each issue could have introduced some better points on where this universe is. Otherwise, Perez and BOOM! have given us a new comic to rave about. The females are awesome, and the story is going to take us everywhere under the sun. So get some Sirens in your life and get ready for some intensity.

What I love about this comic so far is the layering of stories. We follow Max, clearly the more interesting of the two because hello he is inside someone's mind. And then we jump to Max's story which will give us all the answers of how Max came to be. Shane's world is very sci-fi with the creatures, flying vehicles, and overall atmosphere of it all. The comic intertwines lots of styles brilliantly with the serial killer genre. Ryan K. Lindsay writes the perfect first issue capturing the reader's attention with the first pages. Our art from Eric Zawadzki brings it all together. The way he switches from sci-fi to more magical realism in Max's story shows how versatile the comic is already. I really just can't wait for issue #2 to come out and may have to drunk text it this weekend.

Shane is your rock and although at moments he takes you some dark times, he lifts you back up. I always found myself on an emotional ride with Shane and Shane's son. You couldn't help get connect to these two. Headspace #8 just exemplifies all of these great qualities about the comic. Readers will love this story and how it all comes together.

What a great story that Paul Tobin brings. Oni Press has impressed me with this epic cat tale. Not only is it creative but it is highly entertaining. And Benjamin Dewey's art is perfect for the story. If you haven't seen pictures of the comic, you may think that the comic is cartoony since there is a talking cat and all, but instead the comic is realistic. Burma looks a real cat. Giving it this real time feel allows for us to actually believe in this story. I really couldn't get enough of the comic. Burma is tantalizing with his motives. The audience will wonder what is coming next and who Burma influenced with each story. Get yourself a copy of this comic. Do it not only for cat fans everywhere, but for the pure domination this story has.

Intersect is like nothing out there. If you are looking for something different that will take you to a world you haven't seen, I think Image has your answer. Fawkes has a lot in store for this story, so jump on this comic for pure fascination.

Anyway, Alison and Jason seem to be in a lot of trouble or just maybe be associated with the kid is what is getting them in trouble. Either way having to run from the cops as well as transforming on the path can't be a good thing. I am so interested to see what happens that it makes it hard to just stop reading the issue. It doesn't come to an end, but just a stop. Like they reached their page limit and had to stop. I love it and hate it all at once. Intersect has kept me for another issue with ease, pick an issue to see if it has the same psychological effect.

I think Intersect has a lot to offer. It is a complex story with real emotions. So me giving Intersect a 2 isn't a bad thing. I would just love for the comic to grow. I would love for the story become more and more clear as we go on. So my 2 is me giving this comic time. I want to see it improve, so don't be discouraged by that. If you like to analyze text, if you like truly usual stories, and if you love admiring good art, Intersect is definitely a comic that will fit your personality.

Intersect really has something to give their audience. I don't think readers will pleased at all moments, but a story can be better when the reader at certain moments wants to throw your comic against a wall. So Ray Fawkes, keep it up, because I continue to pick it up.

Jack Hammer #1

Nov 6, 2013

There are lots of holes in this first issue, literal and figurative. The way we get introduced to so many new ideas is a bit odd. Usually, we have some sort of basic understanding of where we are heading. I found it interesting but at the same time annoying. It was a lot to throw out at a reader at once. I wanted something to hold on to. For me, I always grab onto a character instantly, even if it changes all the time. I didn't have that immediate reaction with anyone. The scenes jump around a lot. Once I understand all the plot roles, I think this will benefit the comic because it isn't exactly action packed. The different characters are what will keep you reading once we have established their roles as well. So hopefully the downfall of this first issue will be the strong pull for the rest of the issues.

Jack Hammer #2

Feb 26, 2014

As you can see the comic has a lot of questions, but honestly the most interesting question I want to ask is Jack's story. This guy most likely has the most difficult story of all to tell. You don't get any insight into his past, so maybe we will never know. I hope that isn't the case. The only thing we know is that Jack was a superhero and now he isn't. He also has tons of connections which could come from him being a private investigator, but I think there is more to the story. As for now, I am totally on board with this comic. Action Lab has done it again and brought out an awesome series.

What I especially love about this comic is the art provided by Ionic. I love all of the rough edges given to the people. It makes each character look like he has a chip on his shoulder. The vibe it sets up is perfect for the story. So there were definite ups and downs in this issue. I think the overall attitude was too wordy, but still had some good plot development. I would love to dive into more of the superhuman stuff. It seems that Jack has a connection with these people and may have even been one himself. Hopefully we can get some more of that plot development and let the action take some of the long drawn out speaking roles.

Judge Dredd #8

Dredd must now go beyond Mega-City One into what I assuming will be limbo. This land also holds no law. So what will a Judge do in land where he can’t judge? I have no idea but I am stoked to see how this plays out. We don’t really know if Anderson will be in his head either. I wish she was going with him, because these two make the story tens time better but oh well. It is an interesting concept too because what really is the law? Law is made by man and man is flawed, so laws are flawed. Dredd must now take on the role of a human making human judgement. There is no law for him to abide, so he can’t say his rulings are from a judge. Yeah this is going to be good.

The issue read well and like I said I enjoy seeing Dredd in new elements. He has a lot to offer even if he is one of the most static characters I have ever read. The ending leads me to believe that Dredd has been to limbo before and somehow doesn't remember it. I kind of hope that the comic flashes to the City next issue though. I feel like the audience may forget what is going on and also I am just wondering how everything is going. Hopefully he and Anderson will gain communication soon to add another layer to the mix. Although the limbo characters add enough.

Judge Dredd #10

Aug 21, 2013

Last review, I mentioned that Dredd may be wandering between different groups out in limbo and I think my prediction has come true with how this issue ends. Looks like he is going to be in limbo for a while. I do wish the story would mention every once in a while why he is in limbo, because his purpose is fading and that is so unlike Dredd; to not stay focused. Next week's cover features Judge Anderson though, so they should be bringing back the true purpose and hopefully her character. I have missed their interactions. Although I do enjoy this new partnership with Dannn. He is funny which offers something different in the Dredd world. All together I would pass over this issue because I don't think anything that happened relates to what is about to happen. It is tough to have that horizontal flow in the entire comic.

Kill Shakespeare: Tide of Blood #5

Aug 28, 2013

I am interested to see where the next Kill Shakespeare takes us. The comic sort of alludes to the fact that they may bring in a new villain. Then when I reread the last couple of pages I think Miranda was referring to herself. With them already playing out Richard, Lady Macbeth, and Prospero it is hard to say who they could bring in that would be bigger than these three names. Maybe Caesar or Brutus? My vote is still for Lady Macbeth. Bring her back! Bring her back! She should just be the over laying villain at all times. I think she may have been Shakespeare's most villainous character. I still get chills thinking about when she sees the blood on her hands. Oh man.

Lazarus #3

Aug 28, 2013

I don't love this comic. It is far from being fully entertaining but still draws on some of my attention. I couldn't put a finger on it, but I think it has to do with the family drama aspect. It doesn't seem authentic. Also, Forever just isn't relatable to the normal audience. I have no connection with her. I get it; she is different and wants to break out. It is a huge selling point when done the right way. She hasn't even done anything yet to defy her family. So I am confused as to why she thinks she is so different, and why Jonah seems to think she is the problem as well. They keep prolonging the big hook for this comic while they should be speeding it up to keep an interest.

Mind the Gap #13

Aug 28, 2013

Why I am so intrigued by this comic revolves around all the different characters involved. Having this flashback, which I hope continues, just adds more layers onto an aggressively interesting story. We get to see inside each character's actions. It allows for us to get to know these people and find their motives. At the same time I think the writers of this story are only building up some of these characters in order to rip them away from us. This gives the reader a chance to ask themselves why they like and who they like. If I were you I would maybe keep a distance from trusting anyone"even yourself.

The progression is slow but, I think my randomness has paid off. A lot didn’t need to take place because I wasn’t bored with what was happening. For me, a lot of times I want a faster pace because I am bored with the current situation. Not here. Also, Chomsky is such an easy character to relate to because we are all a little crazy and self doubting. We talk to things that aren’t real too. Chomsky is struggling like any other human and God’s Second Coming or a rotting cat will no doubt help him to find his way.

Maybe a kid would even open up Frankenstein by Shelley just to see how scary these guys can get.

What does come about is a much larger story than I expected. Joshua Williamson gave us one thing with #1 and #2 with his story. Now I find myself intrigued with a more complex serial killer story. What is it about this town that is creating these monsters? As Finch and Crane come closer in the morgue to finding out who their mystery person was that got killed, someone is stalking them. The way these pages are laid out for the reader is terrifying. I literally was on edge with each panel. Williamson has given us a town of killers and the "who done it" aspect is greater than I thought. I can't tell if there is a whole ring of crazy people running around, if it is just one man who has come back from the dead, or if the town is somehow protecting itself from intruders of its secrets. That is why the mystery behind this comic is so much to play around with. It is really a blast to read this comic and it has given new light to the killer story.

See Frampton not only gives you a cute story, but he throws us a lot of little humor. It makes all ages laugh. Again, another reason why kids will like this comic.

Like a lot of Cartoon Network shows, I am not entirely sure what this plot is about, but the journey behind it all seems worth it in the end. The journey these three embark upon in this issue, involves soldiers fighting for the Commonwealth. If you aren't with them, you are against them. So the group decides to tag along. Oh and the catch is, these soldiers ride across the plains in a giant hat. They are very odd men and again remind me of old literature, but this time think Don Quixote. The whole trip is a fiasco. I just love how this comic brought in a lot of old literature style to a newer audience. It was a fun read and shouldn't just be a special, but hopefully a regular series.

Overall, I was impressed with this first issue. It was highly fun and although it may start off a little typical, the characters inside make this a totally new hero story. I can't wait to see them all get together, but more importantly I can't wait to see them in full uniform. It really gets you pumped for those superhero moments again!

Power Up #2

Aug 19, 2015

Everything isn't coming together for this comic because it was already there to begin with. The comic is incredibly funny with the dialogue between characters. Amie, being a little clueless, gives for great conversations between her and the other established heroes. And let's not forget about Sandy who, Spoiler Alert, has a batmobile for the gang that consists of a mini-van. Then while Amie tries to discover her powers, the others are coming together to help her figure it out. The comic is just well balanced all around with its light banter. I can't wait for issue #3, and soon fans will see why Power Up is growing so quickly. It will make you fall in the love superhero groups once again, and also make you want your very own goldfish hero!

Power Up has certainly moved to the top of my list. It is sad to think that it is a mini-series. But nonetheless, if you need some fun in your life and need to unwind from a long day, I couldn't picture anything better than some Power Up… and maybe some popcorn.

Princeless: Raven: The Pirate Princess #1

Revelations #1

Jan 3, 2014

I would give this issue a 3, because it was average. There were things that foreshadowed a copycat murder. And there were things that brought a much more riveting plot surrounding by a mysterious setting. The Vatican will always be this elusive place and perfect backdrop for some revelations. So stick with this mini-series, and I hope my doubts will soon fade with this artistic masterpiece.

Revelations #2

Feb 5, 2014

With all that is going on it is hard to get a grasp on what is the truth. This is one of those comics that you can't trust anyone. So maybe Marcel, Lucy, or Richleau are all a part of this bigger plan. Charlie could be the root of it all. I doubt this theory has credit, but this is exactly what an untrustworthy comic does to you. I can't trust anyone! Charlie starts to interview witnesses but with these cases no one can believed. It is switched to guilty till proven innocent. He seems to get a little closer to finding the truth of the Cardinal's death, but I don't think Charlie is in anyway prepared for what he will most likely find.

Revelations #3

Mar 12, 2014

As I said before, the Revelations took a turn to a more detective comic. Now I was still interested in the mystery parts. The addition of Lucy adds to the whole mystery of it, so she is a good behind the scenes character. Honestly though Charlie parading around trying to solve this case was lots of fun. I love his full on personality in this issue. Before, he didn't read as a true lead for the comic. A lot of the side characters like Toscianni took over the spotlight when it came down to it. Charlie took over the issue as our main man, and it is exactly what the comic needed to get a 5/5.

As I said, this issue had to be good, but damn with the beginning being so sad, I thought some hope was out there for Charlie. His personal life just keeps getting crossed with his work life. And what is up with Marcel? This guy seems to be nowhere. Shouldn't he be watching his bro's back or at least trying. For some reason, I don't trust him. Or I at least need a reason to trust him. I can't even imagine where this comic is going to take us in the finale. It will for sure be a good moment.

Revelations #6

Jun 4, 2014

The comic's set up for this last issue is perfect. The story filters through current and past events when all is revealed. I don't think you will guess the ending either. It has that same creepy vibe it had at the beginning. Each character comes together. I will say that I was surprised with how cool the meaning of the whole book had. Maybe some will take it as a meaning. Maybe some will take it as bullshit. For me, I still like to have that hope. I can't say the same for Charlie, but faith does that to you.

Robyn Hood (2014) #1

Aug 21, 2014

There isn't particularly a lot of action in this issue, but I thought it was a great first issue. It allowed time for background knowledge to be shown, characters to develop, and a clear good vs. evil plot to take shape. I am excited to see how these first couple of issues roll out and the dynamic of character relationships. Marian has always been my favorite, so I am hoping she can take some lead on a couple of issues. Also, I hope we dive into Robyn and Marian's personal lives a little more. There is so much to do with these characters, so it should be a fun ride.

I am excited to see what happens to her first villain The Priest and what he will lead to. As I said before, I think Robyn will deal with the small fish first and this will only lead to bigger fish for her and Marian. By unfolding the first piece so soon, it has hooked me on the comic.

I couldn't be more thrilled for this creative team. And yes I love Jaime Salangsang Jr.'s art, but seeing the new artist for the next arc got me excited too.

I don't exactly know how to take Avella's return. Actually I sort of wish she would join Robyn and Marian. I don't know if that will happen. But I think the Cabal is bigger than Robyn is anticipating, so she may need some help from Myst or anywhere she can get it. Shand doesn't do anything small, so I wouldn't be surprised if this was an all-out war when the Cabal finally enter the picture. Either way I'll be there reading. Robyn Hood has got me hooked. Reading this comic every month makes the week that much sweeter.

Sep 9, 2015

I was definitely not disappointed with this issue. Waiting to get to The Cabal has created some great issues. Each hero is coming into their own, while The Cabal feel like they are falling apart. I don't think these guys will be an easy swing, but foreseeing that Robyn is going to need all the help she can get makes me excited for this epic showdown. But if I am being honest, the only disappointment is with Robyn and Marian. I really do want these ladies to explore their relationship further. I know Robyn isn't even close to this and maybe I am dreaming, but I can't help but think they are made for each other. So Shand gives us some hope in these next coming issues, because with The Cabal getting closer, with Marian going after Sam, and with Robyn not growing in the love department, I fear that these two will miss the opportunity.

So Robyn is what always kept me coming back, but what kept me from staying? Well quite honestly, the story had some real issues. I couldn't catch on to the whole plot and thought it had some holes. Well I can officially say that this One-Shot has hit all those marks that it missed before. The story doesn't just have potential this time. It has an awesomely entertaining setting, characters, and personal dynamic that I have been wanting to see. If you are like me and may only read Robyn Hood every once in a while for quick wit and tight action, well stop and get this issue. You get all of that wrapped with some details of Robyn's current situation that make it an all-around great read.

It seems it is about time to put someone in charge who isn't evil or will be turned. Cal has got to go.

But at last we don't have to completely say goodbye to everyone. Marian is coming with us. It will spice things up. The two of them partnering up could be a change that will bring in some more constant readers. I love the partner dynamic and with Robyn's wit and Marian's heart, it will be fun to see their relationship bounce off of each other. Marian has very cool powers. We never really got to know who this gal is, so hearing more of her story will be a nice change-up. Since Robyn is grieving, I would love to see Marian on Earth get into a dating relationship. I think not only exploring the crime fighting part, but everyday life would be fun to see for both characters.

Zenescope stills has a good comic and story on the line. Robyn is such a likable character. You want her to win at all times, but they need to give more show time in order to keep the reader entertained. There are a lot of side stories that I don't see blending together smoothly. I think they will just all end up in the same room together somehow and start fighting all over at once. Picking sides as they choose. Maybe it will be fun to see play out but in the end it will leave us with a mixed feeling of how they all ended up together.

There are positives notes here too. I don't mean to lash all of the negative at you. The story has some good basics involving the two worlds. Robyn is a likable character and brings that trashy girl attitude from earth. I also like the villains and we get introduced to another villain in this issue that could make for some better stories. He has more of a background with Robyn. Gisbourne is good, but as I said above I am dying to know more of his motives. Why does he do what he does? Robyn will have a pretty tough battle ahead of herself and I hope it all takes place in the castle. I would love her sneaking around there, being hunted by everyone. I can guess that Marian will be back next issue too. Robyn will find out what is happening to her and we will see if evil will overtake Marian. It is a lot to pack into the next issue, but if they don't put it all in there it will lead to that slow story again.

It was perfect and really sets up the next story arc. When the next issue comes out, which could be a while, I don't think I will lose interest the way I normally do waiting on a title. I am not the biggest fan of Zenescope, since their titles seem to be more not less of women's body parts. I have stuck with Robyn in hopes that I may open my mind to more Zenescope titles. I don't know if I quite there, but if this magic keeps up I could.

At the end of the issue, we find out that we are entering a new story arc, which was surprising because usually the gateway issues aren't that thrilling, but Samurai Jack does a good job of keeping your interest in order to build up the new story.

Anyway, after the fight it seems all hope is lost for Jack. He has no friends, nowhere to run, no sword, and isn't even in his time period. He flashes back to a moment with his father, the cute moment that I mentioned before, and the sword just isn't a sword anymore. It is Jack's soul. It is a connection he has with his father. To get the sword back would mean everything to Jack, but I think Jack has to earn in back. Jack must realize that he is a good fighter with and without the sword. I am hoping it isn't an easy task to get the sword back and then Jack is powerful again. He should have to get out of this depressed state to win it back. I have a feeling something big will happen either way. And I am hoping that this story arc will end with Aku and Jack face to face. It is about time that these two have a battle.

I don't know if I just needed to pay more attention, but either way, it lacked that wow factor I look for in a first issue. What I did love about the comic was the setting of it.

It seems like the series is building into something bigger. Also with the ending I am hoping it is foreshadowing some more background information, so the reader can fully grasp Tiklopis.

Spaced Out #3

Apr 23, 2014

I wish we could have reversed issues 2 and 3 and then came out with 1. That would have grabbed my attention more with having an understanding the background with Bops, and the intentions of the planet. So this comic has had a rocky start, but now I finally feel like I could get into this story. A lot of stuff is revealed in this issue. Marko was a big surprise for me, and now that the fate of Tiklopis rests on Bops shoulders, mind you he isn't even from this place, is more than enough reason to see where these dudes take us next.

T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #1

Aug 14, 2013

As for me I think comics being redone have some setbacks. A whole new genre has become the forefront in comics lately. It is called "redoing a classic." See we take comics that made some money back in the day and we revamp them in order to bring in that old audience and then bring in a new audience to enjoy the redoes and hopefully buy the old ones too. It is a win/win situation. I get it. I even buy into most of these comics and while Thunder Agents isn't bad or shouldn't be criticized for doing what a lot of other titles have done, it is getting old. Is anyone else sick of this? I don't mind some title revamps and I will probably even keep reading Thunder Agents, I just want new comics, with new stories. This may end up being the fall for this new one and I can't blame anyone for picking something else that is a more appealing classic being done over.

T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #2

Sep 18, 2013

Dynamo does finally get to Iron Maiden and the fight scene isn't too shabby. Lots of evil looks with "bangs", "krrshs", "pwangs", and so on. I always like when comics put in these noises for us. It brings it to life and reminds me of my younger days watching Batman on TV Land. This whole comic just reminds me of old comics. It has that vibe with the simple stories. It isn't a bad thing necessarily, but if I wanted to read old Thunder Agents I would read the old Thunder Agents. All in all I will have to see how this Kat flashback works out and maybe this comic will hit some marks that I have set. Otherwise just read this if you are a huge fan of Thunder.

Teen Dog #1

If it isn't obvious, I was cracking up reading this comic. It came together so well that I didn't want this ordinary day to end. I could spend the whole school year with Teen Dog and Mari. BOOM! once again has entertained me through and through. The plot is strong, the characters are strong, and delight is strong. Jake Lawrence's story is so clever that it had to fit in with BOOM!'s titles and it has to fit into your life.

Once you pick this up, you will not want to put it down. And now that we have some consistent stories between Maya and Dog, I think that the comic will only grow with its themes and with the humor.

Mixed with all this chaos of Teen Dog and his rivals is a true story though. Although some issues have hit upon some meaningful moments, I would say that issue #3 takes the cake. You won't find out until the end, but it is so worth it. I just love this story and think Lawrence has created something awesome. You really need to jump on this mini-series and not look back. You will first love the fun art and bright colors. Secondly the jokes are insanely simple and dry but make you laugh out loud. And thirdly, you will see how cute each background theme is. It will remind anyone of the good times when they were a kid. Teen Dog will become your number one comic, and may even inspire some lazy chillin' days for you.

(OK maybe there would have to be pizza involved. But that is my only request. Is there anyway to get a free piece of pizza with purchase of the last issue? Lawrence let us know what you can do about that. Thanks)

Teen Dog, if we see him again, will probably have not figured out his worries, as they are pretty big worries, but either way I would love to see him again. We still have all of senior year to get through and what better way to get through my week than with Teen Dog in last year of childhood. Overall, it is clear why this comic rocks, and it is clear that I adore this comic. Any comic that can talk about the things that make life so great for eight issues and still be just as great, can't compete with others.

Jun 4, 2014

Overall, it is easy for me to say how much I love every issue. The action is always entertaining whether between turtle and turtle or ex-Purple Dragon with Metalhead. With so many characters piling up the plot is stacking up to another huge showdown. The showdown is always better when you know the background behind it all. So we may not all be as big of a fan as me, but it makes it more exciting to know the work behind it all. I do wish we would have seen more of Krang for the sake of seeing the villain's perspective. It is hard to be on Donnie's side too when we don't see the bad guy. Plus I love Krang's story. It has become more complex. And Stockmen is with him as well, and that dude is entertaining as hell. No one can rebuttal that.

Plus I haven't mentioned Leo, but something strange happens to him that will be touched upon in the coming issues. I'm not sure if he knows it yet. The comic leaves a lot of his story up in the air so really all we have to do is wait. I think some huge stories will collide soon with the Turtles. Leo will play a huge roll, the Technodrome, Angel, Casey, and so on. We have got a lot to look forward to TMNT fans, so get ready.

All in all though, even the last page of this issue had more plot than the Rat King. I think following The Rat King around this issue led to some confusion. Right after he leaves, Leo and Splinter think nothing of it and move on with another story. Hello you literally almost just killed each other from the King's mind tricks and you don't even care! I am frustrated with that. I would have much rather followed Krang or Shredder or Alopex. What is up with that fox? And with the ended, I really would like to see what is up with Shredder. Needless to say, I wasn't the biggest fan of this issue. I really hope a common goal is set up soon, or at least everyone's individual story is moving with a pace in mind.

The action was awesome all thanks to Cory Smith for drawing up the art for this issue. It had some scenes that I have been longing for in the battles. It also had this creepy vibe that couldn't be explained but played right into the villain centered issue. I am looking forward to where we go from here. My hope is that the Turtles come together for an actual plan against one of their foes.

The surprise that Hob and Slash have for the Turtles is quite a weird surprise. Not exactly what I was expecting and I don't know if I even like it either. So my excitement was clearly subsided. It gave the comic this corny feeling that I didn't enjoy. Only time will tell if I like this surprise. I feel like the past couple of issues keep building something, but we don't know where it is coming from. Whether Krang, Hob, Shredder, Rat-King, and so on, I just want something to explode because all this rising action is running in too many circles.

This last part worries me… a lot. Even though Splinter is the most badass of them all, I hate when he is not with his family. Plus with all the emotions inside of him, he could really make a bad move. But then again, I haven't been this excited about TMNT since City Fall. Plus I don't know why, but Old Hob seems to have a high respect for Splinter and all that he does. Maybe it is Old Hob wishing he had a family like Splinter does or just being in aw of Splinter's abilities. Either way, I think if it came down to it, Hob would save that rat's life. So get ready, because I love how the high intensity and the backstabbing going on all over the place. These next couple of issues will bring it and TMNT fans are ready.

Aug 20, 2014

TMNT will always be my favorite thing about comics, and seeing Eastman put a lot of his classic character's attitude and art into this piece made the comic as fun as ever. The Turtles were crazy teenagers again yet still fighting serious butt giving readers that kick ass feeling that comes with the dudes. The story, again, wasn't anything too excited, and I really wish they would have spent more time with Casey and April. Of course, I love Casey, but we could have bounced from the present to the past with Casey to make some more fun happen. But I won't complain too much because all the memories of the old Turtles came rushing back with our featured artist. TMNT, the comic, always gives readers that sense that IDW really cares about these characters and what direction they are taken each year.

The only thing that is weird about this comic is that it doesn't offer anything more than the show. The stories are little side line guys. If they are going to have it play off the show completely then give me stories that will allow me to explore more of the show with. I have noticed that a lot of children's books do this when based off shows or a movie. The story is only face value which is cool and all but why not offer something kids can talk about and be knowable on. Maybe this is my teacher side coming out. Anyway, the comic is a fun read and these characters bring such a good light on the Turtles in spite of all the bad Turtle themes heading our way. It may be my favorite thing yet.

From the perspective of an educator, I love how each issue tries to teach the reader some lesson; especially this issue in which Splinter teaches the boys that having different viewpoints on something is a strong attribute. Splinter is always the voice of reason. He is such an iconic character. I really do believe that. In every comic, movie, or show that comes out, Splinter is the same rat. That goes to show how all people see him as this universal character, like God or Morgan Freeman. I hope the writers keep these lessons up, because it adds a nice touch.

This plot and characters have been my favorite so far, besides for Pepperoni, no one will forget. But anyway, the setting works so well and finally brings this comic into full view. Although I would have rather the Turtles just have been in the future from the beginning. Turtles in Time offers the readers a better look into what the TMNT comic could dive into as well. It seems that we are headed for a war. And not just any war, but a war that could change the TMNT universe forever. So it is only fitting to see what would happen if the Turtles lost or decided to give up. It gives these four brothers more to fight for through all the crap they must face. Allor brings this comic what it needed, so I hope Turtles in Time can offer more relationship to the other comics, as well as, provide a fun story with some kick ass moves.

And my favorite part was the battle between Winslow and the Gatekeeper. I love the dialogue in between hits. I have always loved when the action has some sort of narration or dialogue. So it was more interesting to see the Gatekeeper beat him up physically and mentally. So all in all, if you have started this series, then end it. And enjoy the layout more than the actual ending. I enjoyed the series as a whole and would love to see it revisited with a better focus on Winslow in the dream world.

It is a fun detective game that will no doubt drive Charlie to find out the truth. Brubaker and Phillips have another hit on their hands, so avid readers of these two can expect something good.

I don't know if they will soon start to investigate Val's death or if they will just deal with it along the way. Maybe neither, but the mystery of Val and specifically why she was killed haunts the reader. You don't want to care knowing that you will not know soon enough, but it is always in the back of your mind. That is just what Brubaker and Phillips are capable of.

All of the emotions that Charlie felt after Val's death come rushing back. So again, we are in the same spot. Charlie is having major issues and Maya is small distraction for him. And yeah you guessed it; I still hate Charlie and wish Maya could see it. Maybe it is wrong of me, but Gil still wins out as best friend. Whatever happens, everyone has buried themselves into these gigantic holes and are trying desperately to fill them in with dirt.

The Fade Out #8

Aug 5, 2015

No matter the approach, The Fade Out is highly addictive. You really just want the mystery to unfold but you don't mind waiting to read the all chaos in between. You really do just relish in the moment and seeing how everything falls into place. My only thought is that Charlie better be bad! I have given him so much crap and if he ends up having nothing to do with it I'll be pissed. But then again, he already has something to do with it. Just playing this game in Hollywood is good enough for me.

The Fiction #2

Jul 15, 2015

Without knowing much about where this plot is headed, you get the sense that there is a disconnect between these once children and the adults of their former town. Otherwise, the purpose the flashbacks seem useless in a way. Or maybe it has to do with this whole kids are innocent but really they're not. We all have secrets. And I am willing to read on to see what that secret is. The town is holding something back and the group is holding something back. The new world isn't the only mysteriously creepy thing about this comic.

The Last Fall #1

Jul 16, 2014

I actually find the backstory of the planets very interesting. I want to see more of each planet since Krovin is this desert smoking land and Merkonia is this lush and rich land. I think by exploring both lands and its people, we could again see some strong points on war and how it affects everything. Waltz has a good start, but with so much press for this comic the first issue's story is known, so I am thinking that issue #2 will have to be where the comic makes or breaks it. With mini-series you only get a small window to do this, so watching how the story progresses in #2 will tell most readers if the comic is worth reading.

The Other Dead #1

Sep 25, 2013

I think the weirdest part about this comic is the fact that Obama may have a huge part in the series. He is on one of the variant covers, which tells me that he will play a key role in the animal zombie attack. Strange! I may check out the next couple of issues just to see what the hell is going on, but doubt I will enjoy them. Like I said, I don't think this type of family is used enough in comics, because some states cultures do seem like a totally other country, but it was a letdown for sure. I guess if you dig zombies and the whole horror showdown between animals and humans then pick this up on behalf of us who can't stand even reading non-fiction about animal torture.

Unless you love zombies and heart Obama (which I never thought those two words would be in the same sentence, but that is comics for ya), then I would avoid this read. The animal walking dead edition is just too cheesy for me. I can't take it seriously and also don't see any new twist envolving. I am sure some big reveals are coming in the near future, and maybe I will change my attitude. But I still hold strong to the fact that if they comic has twist to bring them to the front right away, so we could have gotten hooked sooner.

The Returning #2

Beth is a perfect fit into this world. She is still naive enough to not understand that people are out to get her, but also smart enough to ask the right questions for much-needed answers. We don't have a lot of side characters quite yet. I like it that way and the comic is straight forward about all the people entering her life. This way you aren't wondering why they have left. All we have that seems constant is the mysterious man who picked her up. The comic ends with some pretty gnarly stuff that leaves a cliffhanger surrounding some major life and death situations. I look forward to seeing who is on each side and what this dude has to offer Beth that she couldn't find on her own.

We are totally going on this ride at the same time Beth is. I love comics don't let the reader in on anything and leave us to wonder with our lead. It allows for us to get our emotions involved. I can tell you that the comic has shifted from how society would act to this underground war developing. There is definitely some psychological warfare being played, but for a different purpose. The Returning dives deep into the psyche and will no doubt drag you into the lies as well. Catch up with this awesome tale before the ending hits.

I love when comics end alluding to more stories coming out from it. So if the comic actually returns or not, it has that strong appeal for more. The reader already is creating the stories within their mind. The Returning hit us in a strong way, so check this comic out and be prepared for one hell of a story.

I hope the ending leads to a story in the TMNT comic. It can't leave me wondering like that. Alopex could certainly have some interesting stories between her and Shedder involving her own vendetta. In my opinion, this has been my favorite villain background yet. Next is Karai which I think will be just as interesting; women always are.

With Mikey being about our only humor in TMNT, I am thinking that Bebob and Rocksteady will take that role. The comic really highlighted how funny these boys can be. I love how they bounce the jokes off of each other too. It isn't just one being funny while the other is serious. So I am excited to see the addition these two bring in TMNT. We all are hoping that they obviously bring the two into City Falls more than for a brief glimpse. We didn't get much City Falls storyline in this issue. It was almost just a warmup for the two. That was a tad disappointing since all the other Micros have brought about some serious plot line. We mostly just learn of how this new comic is going to interpret Bebob and Rockesteady. Well I can tell two things; they like to beat up things and they love cracking jokes. So please enjoy these iconic bad dudes.

She is following some Professor. Don't know why but when the two met up he recruits to train her. Again, don't know why. Although you are intrigued to see where their story goes, I don't want to get too attached. Plus I still feel like something is missing with their story. Do people actually just stalk one another to eventually work together on ninja training? Maybe when aliens land that is what the world will come to, but for now readers need an understandable plot. We need a character to rally behind for whatever reason even if we get lost at some moments. Trees isn't growing into anything that I can handle, and I think most readers can agree.

I did read that the covers of this 4 issue series will turn into a giant cover of all the characters. I thought that was pretty cool, and really makes for great publicity. If you dig John Byrne then pick this up along with the other three to make the poster. Otherwise; stick with some classics.

V Wars is going to have a lot more to say. And with saying that, it still amazes me that V Wars has only had four issues, because it feels like they have already thrown us so many stories. I know the intensity will only go up. I think my favorite people to follow in the stories so far have been the ones with an ulterior motive. Whether a blood or beat, it goes to show how deep the hatred is. I would love to see one of these guys get turned too from that one beat or blood showing compassion. I mean peace is the goal; I don't know if we'll ever get there but seeing some progress being made especially with someone working both sides would take V Wars to the next level as well as relate to wars going on now. Whatever the case is, this comic has kept my attention and I think most readers would agree with the entertaining factor that the comic holds over us.

Swann and the Queen have a long discussion throughout the comic. Again, not much action, but V Wars doesn't need much action for there to still be things happening all around you. For instance, Swann's past comes back in a big way. It would be undermining his story if I said his past was haunting him, because it is just is past and it isn't just haunting him. Swann has to live with these thoughts every day and never knowing what is happening to his little girl. And because of this, he is on that edge of crazy. I am not saying Swann is crazy, but I truly think that he could be pushed, even if he is the most level-headed character in the story. So when the Queen asks for a favor, he follows. He follows for many reasons, but it all leads to one place; Swann is working for the Bloods to try to find the peace instead of the Beats. A change of events that will keep me reading on once more though this dark story.

It seems to me that almost everyone has their own agenda going on in the comic. Even though I like some characters I meet along the way, the only one I truly trust is Luther. Maybe because he is driven by his daughter, but still, he seems to be the only one who has a clear head and really is thinking about others. Although sometimes I feel like his plans have no hope.

I literally feel like I am repeating everything I think Erik would say about this issue or rather the series as a whole. Velvet is just a such a keeper for me. It amazes me how Brubaker can take us into the mind of a spy without actually taking us there. But if I know Brubaker at all, which I don't but wish I did, his series always get crazier.

I think the weak point of this issue and maybe some more issue will be our villain. Don't get me wrong, Setter is a good villain, BUT he isn't great. We got a peak of his evils beforehand, so you would think each issue would just build on that and show us how cruel this man really is. Reading this issue, I wasn't even convinced Setter was a villain, because I still haven't seen him do anything. I am interested to see where his character goes. With Berkshire, it almost seemed personal with X. Berkshire is such an evil dude. I mean he turns into a total pig! So why have Setter be so lame right out of the gate. I was hoping for some big guns being thrown at the readers soon, so we can all hate Setter and once again vote for X to rip off his face.

The comic introduces a lot about violence and how different people would deal with corruption. So I am excited to see where this next arc takes us. I am wondering if Setter will die or if X will have a change of heart. In the end of this issue, it sort of seems that Danny's part ends too, so I am hope that isn't the case. Instead, I hope Danny's part changes and grows with X as both main characters.

Now X faces two huge problems. You think Turners story is going to end but all of sudden he becomes something big. I am excited to see if the next issue takes off with Turner or if he is on the back burner till just the right moment.

So with our two stories bouncing off of each other, I find both interesting, as well as, a good balance for the point in this series. Mr. Tango seems promising, so I hope he can last through a couple more issue than our most recent villains.

As far as plot goes, the story doesn't give us anything. Sometimes you just need some action packed issues, and not a lot of dialogue. That is exactly what we get. I don't love it all the time, but X needed this since he has this new code now. Plus I love when an issue can be read with using only the pictures. It tells a lot about an issue and the overall theme they are trying to get across. So the cover delivered with high action and some whoop ass on X. Gambler was a fun criminal. Although I have a feeling that Tango will be the best dance for X. I would say for art purposes or sequencing pick up the issue for some pleasure on your eyes. If you are looking for a big reveal then pass. You will still understand the plot next issue.

Finally this comic has brought in another powerful villain into X's life. He has had it pretty easy for a while. I think some major factors will go into effect next issue playing around with the idea of an all-out manhunt for X. But X isn't one dude to just give up that like. He will bring his “A” game back when the time is ready. This issue, X wasn't ready. With all that has happened he can finally show everyone what he is truly made out of in the open. The only drawback is that X may have to give it all up after his big reveal.

Our new story arc was long-awaited, but I think the time has come for a new villain and X to make a huge splash. Leigh has developed into a great character, and seeing her switch sides although hurts it adds so much drama to the series.
