I’m embarrassed to admit this: While I’ve owned every issue of Mind MGMT, this is the first time I’ve read what is now the third omnibus in the collection. I have no logical or tangible reason as to why I haven’t. The good news is that now my reaction to the third omnibus isn’t me reflecting on something I read three years ago. This is fresh in my mind, still bouncing around up there.
The Twilight Zone has been cited by countless writers and directors as a major influence in television and the science fiction genre as a whole. For the past 50 years, its eerily poignant messages have remained relevant in the social and political worlds. But for its popularity, the man behind the project remains mostly a mystery. Rod Serling, a face any fan of the show could place, carefully crafted an image as an impartial observer, but who was he when the lights went off? The Twilight Man: Rod Serling and the Birth of Television seeks to shine a light on the life of television's “angry young man.”
The third issue of Berserker Unbound take a somber tone as the titular Berserker resigns to his fate that he is stuck with the homeless man Cobb. The two retreat from the city back to Cobb’s forest encampment and begin to bond over drinks that the Berserker had purchased with his golden coins. The Berserker is still very much in mourning after the loss of his wife and child, and after two teenage hooligans threaten Cobb and are subsequently chased off, he learns that Cobb has lost his family to an accident, as well. It is at that moment that the portal that brought the Berserker to the present-day, big-city activities and a new threat emerge for the Berserker.
I haven't had the opportunity to talk about Avatar: The Last Airbender in a review before now. Generally considered one of the greatest cartoons of all time, The Last Airbender has seen no shortage of success in its brief fourteen-year history. From a popular followup series, to a solid continuation of the narrative in graphic novels like Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Search and The Rift, to a universally panned live-action film, The Last Airbender has continued to live long after the show concluded. Which brings us to Avatar: The Last Airbender: Team Avatar Tales.
