Is it me or are my comics letting me down a lot these days?
Here in The Calling: Cthulhu Chronicles #3 I feel that the slow push of the first two issues was thrown out the window in favor of a rush job. Is the next issue actually the last?
And with this, the third issue, Hellboy: The Storm is over.
After the six issues of Darkness Calls and the eight issues of Wild Hunt, the three issues of The Storm seems rather small. Upon reading the stories, the name reminds me of the phrase “The calm before the storm.” After all,...
If you like Samuel L. Jackson, you might like this comic book; after all, he is credited as one of the creators and is the “main character” in it. Unfortunately, here in issue #4 of Cold Space, this star vehicle comes to a not-so-surprising end. That end is not the only thing unfortunate...
Something is coming down the turnpike in Incorruptible #9. Literally. The only problem is Max Damage and Jailbait are in Star City tracking down the one who leaked Max Damage’s secret invulnerability to his enemies: one of the Plutonian’s ex-girlfriends. This does not lead to the big clash...
You should know, Dracula is not really in Dracula: The Company of Monsters #1. Well, Vlad Tepes is, in flashbacks. However, there is no bloodsucking going on in this comic.
That may sound bad to you; after all, Dracula is the name on the cover. Upon reading though, you will find that is a really...
OK, I’ll admit it: I figured this western comic book series would let me down before it ended. However, I thought it would be in the fourth and final issue, not this one, the third issue of Pale Horse.
This gives me hope for the next issue out next month. This issue of this bloody mini-series...
This is actually old news, but of note considering the rise of digital comic books.
Last month, Dark Horse Comics posted its last MySpace comic. Not much fanfare, just a letter at the end of the comics that were posted. The reason? Other digital medium. In the letter, they mention Dark Horse’s...
The biggest reason I picked up Morning Glories? The $3.99 cover price for 44 pages of story, no ads. Well, that and my comic book store owner gave it a good recommend.
Worth it? Yes, but do not expect to be satisfied with one issue.
Dark Horse is re-releasing some of its most famous first issues for only $1. First up this week (August 11, 2010) are Frank Miller’s first Sin City tale: The Hard Goodbye (you know, the one with Marv) and Aliens vs. Predator.
Sure, it is like the dealer giving you a discount on your first hit,...
That strange picture on the cover is the biggest reason I was waiting for this comic book. Who, or what, is in the picture?
Of course, you won’t find an answer in this issue of The Calling: Cthulhu Chronicles, but that is what part of what makes this book enjoyable.
Yes, this book really does have three titles. The main title is BPRD. The secondary title is Hell on Earth. The third title (that will go on the next four books after this as well (it is a five part mini-series)) is New World.
Did you get all that? Good. Did you buy it yet?
Didn’t Buzzard #2 just come out? Must have been late. That is OK. I got to read them both in one afternoon.
Verdict: A short mini-series focusing on Buzzards quest for his own death has been a good idea.
Sometimes word of mouth can really piss me off. Word of mouth told me I should look out for Sweets. Word of mouth had me read the ten page preview Image sent me. Word of mouth got to me too late to pick up Sweets #1 before my comic book store ran out.
Thanks word of mouth. Thanks mainly because...
You will notice two things when you first see Pug: 1) It is about boxing and 2) It is not the normal size for a comic book.
Pug is 104 page B&W comic book about the life of a failed boxer in the 1950s who turns to shady dealings outside of the ring to survive.
Actually, I am not even certain about a certain something in particular that I caught in Hellboy: The Storm #2, and I really want to talk about it with someone! However, I won’t do it here.
In Baltimore: The Plague Ships, Dark Horse Comics would like you to introduce you to Lord Henry Baltimore. World War I has just ended, but for Lord Baltimore, the war continues as he hunts vampires.
Baltimore was originally conceived by Mike Mignola (Hellboy) and fleshed out with the help of writer...
After last issue’s big battle, Irredeemable #16 takes quite a turn. This issue of Irredeemable is a series of vignettes. Mostly quiet moments, though a couple are violent, in the lives of the characters.
This is my favorite issue of Irredeemable lately.
