If you’re looking for a book to drive you into the deeper depths of sadness, The Violent is the book you’re looking for. It’s an everything-that-can-go-wrong-does kind of story, but it’s so melancholy, so terribly disconcerting that it could be likened to the cliché car-crash. The book pulls the reader in instantaneously. It’s real. It’s relatable. It’s hopeless, like so many of us.
I’ve never been huge on vintage tales riddled with warriors and religious types, but Image Comics, and more specifically, writer Brian Wood and artist Garry Brown have got me questioning my previous opinion. Black Road Volume 1 is nothing short of amazing.
If you’re digging everything about The Street Angel Gang, then get ready for a summer time gift of greatness. Image has our backs, and that means a brand new tale from Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca!
Steve Niles has so many stellar stories under his belt you can literally name just about anything he’s done and it will not only be a quality book, it might also ring a bell. Here’s a little one you might know: 30 Days of Night.
Yeah, that Steve Niles!
Image and Shadowline are answering calls from fans: We want more Rat Queens!
The good folks in control of this beautiful books have heard our pleas, and I’m stoked to say they’re doing everything they can for comic fans: Rat Queens #1 is headed back to print!
If you’re a huge Saga fan, or if you just love all things created by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples, you’re most certainly going to want to keep your eyes open, as we fans are going to be gifted something special in April!
I haven’t been a fan of professional wrestling since about 1987. Back when the big American promotion wasn’t WWE, but WWF. Back when Hulk Hogan shredded that yellow shirt… and Jake the Snake brought that terrifying sack out to the ring with him… and the Ultimate Warrior exploded into a fireball of energy and popularity. It’s been that long for me. But that doesn’t mean I don’t love a great wrestling film (Darren Aronofsky’s The Wrestler was a heartbreaking masterpiece), or a great wrestling book, like Ringside Vol. 1: Kayfabe.
Little Mikey is just playing ball with his old man. It’s a slick way to keep the boy distracted while mom stayed back at home and prepared his big birthday bash. But it doesn’t look as though Mikey’s going to be enjoying that party… as he’s gone – poof – completely missing. So begins a tale of adventure, mystery, terror and familial love.
If you’re unfamiliar with Image’s amazing title, Officer Downe, you’re missing out on one of the stronger titles on the market today. But fret not, you’ll soon be able to sag a gorgeous paperback loaded with plenty of extras.
