Allen: Son of Hellcock #1

Dec 5, 2015

Allen: Son of Hellcock is a great, fun read. The characters come to life and seem to pop off the page through beautiful, expressive art, and the imaginative storyline and silly characters are full of life and sarcasm;these things fill theHellcockworld.It's a bizarre combination of past and present, modernity and medieval, and that is a central part of what makes this particular comic so fascinating.

Billy The Pyro #1

Jul 9, 2014

These are questions that I'm sure will be answered in future issues. Billy the Pyro is definitely a series to pick up and read and I'm hoping that future issues will be just as well done as this one.

Charmed: Season 10 #1

Oct 15, 2014

The TV series might have ended, but the Halliwell sisters and their foes live on in these well-drawn and surprisingly familiar comics. Charmed: Season 10 #1 gives me hope that this next season will continue what has long been a favorite show for a lot of people. Thebookis still able to surprise fanswith new characters, interesting plot lines, and wry humor. It's definitely a series to catch upwith if you haven't already and a great start to the new series if you're up-to-date with the Charmed Ones.

Cryptocracy #1

Jun 20, 2016

Cryptocracy holds a lot of promise. It's beautifully written and doesn't hold back, with a creative story that is familiar but not like reading the same thing for the millionth time. It makes itself out to be different by fusing elements across genres and taking a look into the lifestyles of the rich and famous" but not the Hollywood type. These rich and famous are as deadly as they are, well, rich and famous, and given that the whole point of Cryptocracy is that there's some serious tensions that are growing between the nine families that control the world, it's probably not going to go well" or end well.

Grimm Fairy Tales Steampunk #1

Feb 1, 2016

Fans of Zenescope's Grimm Fairy Tales will fall easily into the universe created in this issue, losing themselves in the fun (and sometimes borderline insane) characters, the hijinks, and the heist plot throughout. Beautifully drawn and well written, this steampunk edition of a favorite comic will draw readers both old and new. It's got guns, a vibe reminiscent of Borderlands and westerns, and it's all-around tons of fun–a definite read for anyone who was a fan ofGrimm initially and an easy story to fall into for readers that maybe aren't quite as familiar with Zenescope's series.

Intrepid #0

Apr 15, 2014

I'm looking forward to seeing how this story develops. It was an excellent first issue, not too cluttered and not too sparse, a great balance of story via a narrator and interaction via character voice. The art was beautiful as well, and I think that it could develop into something really awesome. Keeping this on my to-read list for future issues!

IXth Generation #1

Jan 12, 2015

It seems as though IXth Generation has a lot of potential and a lot of possibilities that could come from the characters and the storyline — it's creative, interesting, and I still absolutely love the naming conventions for the characters. It's a cool blend of fantasy and science-fiction, and in a genre that's been rehashed over and over again, this is new and refreshing and, despite its pitfalls, has definite possibilities. This is one to keep up on and hopefully the universe will be expanded on and the characters will see a little more personality in upcoming issues.

Mae #1

May 12, 2016

A clash of characters in the first issue seems to suggest further conflict will erupt in the future. It leaves the reader wondering, what happens if Mae disappears and goes off with Abbie? There're a lot of unanswered questions in the first issue, but I'm confident they'll be answered in the future. Gene Ha truly delivers with this imaginatively dark comic, leaving a lot open to interpretation and leaving readers wanting more. This one teems with mystery and intrigue at what exactly Abbie's been doing and how Mae is going to fit into this whole scheme.

Midnight Society: The Black Lake #1

Jan 22, 2016

It's a great title for anyone who's looking for a strange, scary read to pick up. It's filled with creatures that are familiar fare but are clearly more deadly than most media makes them out to be; characters that are intriguing and have their own (sometimesvery dark) pasts, and a great, cohesive storyline that isinformative and fun to follow.Midnight Society: The Black Lake is a fantastic read, great for the horror fan craving a little something new.

Orphan Black #1

Feb 25, 2015

I enjoy comics that are based off of another established media, and Orphan Black #1 does an excellent job of transposing information " as a fan of the TV show, this is definitely a series that I'll continue to follow. It's a unique view into an already established universe, offering a plethora of background information that is somewhat unattainable through TV.

Raygun #1

Mar 23, 2016

Raygun #1 is beautifully illustrated, with all characters, panels, and settings coming across clearly. The characterization of Matthew comes across effectively and effortlessly in each page, displaying a boy who has been through a lot and still wants to come out fighting. Secondary characters don't have nearly as much interaction or dialogue but the players are clearly laid out"the bully, the sidekick, and our antihero. Overall, Raygun is a quick, interesting read, with real-life bases, and looks to be a promising series as we follow Matthew and the hunt for the weapon whose incredible powers have yet to be unleashed on the world.

Robyn Hood: 2015 Holiday Special #1

Dec 7, 2015

Overall, Zenescope's Robyn Hood Holiday Special: Reprieve isentertaining, the characters and monsters alike pop off the page, and the issue is filled with heartwarming moments " even when Robyn's being a total badass while fighting ice monsters and Krampus himself. It goes to show that even someone like Robyn, a girl that's been faced with such hardship and firmly believes that Christmas is cursed, can see past the darkness and uncertainty that shrouds her life, even if just for an evening. The moral of the issue is sweet and genuine and the pages carry a little something for everyone " action! adventure! sarcasm! destruction! " a true holiday tale for even the grumpiest of readers.

Tomb Raider (2016) #1

Feb 20, 2016

Seeing Lara Croft translated to the page is neat and just as much of an adventure story-wise as the games have been, and fans of Tomb Raider shouldn't hesitate to pull it this week, as it'll pick up where the 2015 game left off. It's a quick read and the start of an intriguing storyline, with the promise of more action and adventure to come.

Zodiac Starforce #1

Aug 10, 2015

Starforce isn't 100% original in its content, but it has pulled together what looks to be a promising storyline with interesting characters, each distinct in their own personalities and motivations. I'm interested in seeing where this goes and will definitely be keeping up with it as the issues come out. It'll be a bright, happy addition to my comic collection.
