We’re jumping right back into another Dark Horse book, and it’s another homerun. This piece, unlike most murder mysteries, takes place across a lengthy stretch of time (from 1930 to 1940), which leaves the story’s protagonist left with countless holes and a wealth of time to be filled in before he can figure out precisely why he’s suddenly woken in 1940 after being trapped in a large vat of formaldehyde for a decade.
When it comes to the strange, dark world of fiction, Dark Horse Comics is one of the few publishers out there that constantly impress and constantly work at expanding and offering new refreshing titles. I missed the first initial run of Dark Horse’s mystery piece, Echoes, but I had the chance to catch up this morning, and I’ve got to say, I started my day on a high note.
The Vulturions aren’t exactly marquee menaces in Spider-Man’s world. They’re actually two-bit hooligans who joined forces to claim power and riches after their eventual leader, Honcho duped an imprisoned Adrian Toomes (better known as The Vulture) into spilling the technical secrets of his by-now infamous wings. When Honcho gets out of the slammer, he does so fully prepared to assemble four pair of wings, one for he and the thugs in his crew.
While he won’t be jumping behind the cameras, as we all wish he would, John Carpenter is still very heavily involved in horror. He’s an established and respected musician. He’s said to have wizard-like skills that he applies while gaming for hours on end. He’s also written some awesome comics along the way, and he’s doing it again. John Carpenter’s Tales of Science Fiction is the legend’s latest project, and you’ll be able to pick it up on July 26th.
You know, I thought things had gotten pretty crazy in the second episode of this totally killer book, but I was off. I was way off. What issue two offered was a little wild… issue three however, is absolutely nutso awesome!
The second issue of Batman and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures manages to far surpass the entertainment value of the first. And the first issue was good, need I remind you.
How could we not review this?
Two of the greatest… well, five of the greatest heroes to ever land within the pages of a comic book together to kick… well, nothing yet, really.
I’m new to Torchwood, and it’s an active enough tale that walking into this story after having failed – thus far – to catch up on the first Torchwood series, proves a task. The writing isn’t profoundly complex, and we get the early impression that we’re dealing with a pretty straight forward science fiction piece, but there are an assortment of characters, and Station Zero Part 1 wastes no time in letting us know we’ve got to learn names and faces extremely quickly (there’s a character guide to kick the book off, thankfully) to have a firm understanding of what’s happening.
Image delivers big yet again (what’s new?) with the upcoming release of Lazarus Sourcebook #2: Hock, the only problem is you may get a little antsy waiting for this one to arrive. The book hits the masses on April 3rd. In the meantime, you may want to jump into the fifth arc of the series to help kill the dreadful wait!
