I’ve always been a little bewildered when it comes to the Silent Hill franchise. Sometimes the stories are smooth operating machines with clear characters, conflicts and conclusions. And then again sometimes you come across a book like Dead Alive, and don’t have the slightest clue what the hell is going on. Oh, how I wished this one hadn’t been so abstract, but hey – we’ll get through it!
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.
If you love IDW Publishing (you absolutely should), then you’re going to salivate at the very thought of the new deal they’ve got cooking up in partnership with Humble Bundle.
The third issue of this fan favorite mini-series starts on an interesting note, as all the jungle mutants descend upon the judges, capturing them so that they might take him back to the insane doctor who no doubt has some horrible designs for these lawmen. That said, there are Predators and even an Alien or so running amuck, so it won’t be a huge surprise if something else gets to the Judges, first.
Remember that evil scientist we just discussed in my review of issue numero uno? Well, he’s taken his devious ways a step further: he’s mutating children and turning them into human/animal hybrids. This dude is bad news, and you know damn well Judge Dredd knows it!

In a world where man didn’t release enough greenhouse gasses and the world is plunged into a bitter, wintery apocalypse, two survivors and their pet badger (honestly never seen that one before) travel the snowy wastelands, battling the harsh cold, gangs of marauding killers and the everyday turmoil that comes from post-apocalyptic survival. It’s not terribly original but it is very entertaining. Having not read the whole series I was somewhat dropped right in the middle of Winterworld’s story but being as its nothing overly complicated that wasn’t too much of an issue.
