Slash, the snapping turtle mutated and designed by Stockgen to capture the quartet of heroes, has tracked down the boys. This issue begins with the ensuing confrontation.
Star Bright and the Looking Glass is a fairy tale, plain and simple. The story centers around Star Bright, a girl of the forest, and her friends, Toad, Owl, and Capybara. When an evil sorceress steals Star Bright's beauty, Star Bright, with the help of her friends, goes on a quest to restore it.
After all the joys and little victories found in Issue #3, I thought things were looking up for Silas and the Settlement, but Issue #4 goes to some seriously dark places, delving deeper into the dangers of the planetoid and the darkness inside the Settlement's would-be savior, Silas.
Following up on the first Dawn of the Jedi series, Prisoner of Bogan continues the story of Xesh, the Rakata Force Hound who came across the home planet of the Je'daii, a group of Force users who strive to achieve a balance between the light side and the dark side, and sought to bring the full might of the Rakatans' Infinite Empire upon them. But, things didn't go as planned, and Xesh crash-landed on the Je'daii home world and ran across three Je'daii students. Through their actions, Xesh changed his mind about destroying them and wound up saving them from the planet's dangers instead. Although Xesh helped to save the students, the Je'daii Council exiled him to the moon of Bogan, the prison for those who are out of balance with the Force and lean toward the dark side.
Thanksgiving has come and gone (here’s hoping that you had a good one), and Dark Horse Comics served up its fourth issue of Spike: A Dark Place to eager comic book sniffers of the Whedonite variety. While many found the Buffyverse comic feast offered by writer Victor Gischler and the art team of Paul Lee (pencils), Andy Owens (inks), and Cris Peter (colors) completely satisfying, your friendly neighborhood Comic Book Slayer was left wanting more.
Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan has always interested me; however, I have not had the opportunity to get invested in the world's mythology. Now, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the fabled ape-man, Tarzan: The Centennial Celebration, written by Scott Tracy Griffin, has been released by Titan Books. This stunning book chronicles the history of Tarzan and his creator. Whether you are an expert who cannot get enough or a novice like myself looking for a gateway into a new world, this book provides you with everything you are looking for.
Demonic possession. The idea of losing control of your body and being trapped inside, forced to watch the horrors the entity that's taken over inflicts on those around you. Even if the possession is discovered, it's a long, difficult fight to exorcise the creature, and even more difficult to keep the host alive, never mind sane, by the time all is said and done.
I’m a webcomics junkie, and I’m always in the market for new artistic endeavors to take up what little free time I have, and so I was more than happy to take a look at this new series that I had never heard of before. I can’t say that I fully understand what’s going on in the comic, but, then again, there are a lot of online comics that I don’t completely understand and yet still enjoy. I’m not really sure what to expect concerning the future of the comic, but I know that I am going to be eagerly awaiting the release of “chapter two” so as to figure out just what Camille is going to do. The entirety of Chapter One, as well as other information, can be found at the comic’s website, www.raptureburgers.com.
Sorry for the belated review, comic book sniffers, but like the hyper-sleeping Ellen Ripley, even if it’s 57 years later, I eventually arrive at my destination (hopefully, without any acid-bleeding stowaways)! Husbands #4: Nocte Machinas is the next chapter in the comic genre-jumping saga of Cheeks, Brady, and Haley and pushes the plot to places where no Husbands story has ever gone before! That’s right! “Husbands in space” is finally here, and we’ve been cleared for access to the bridge!
Imaginary babies can be fun. Not the invisible type that strange people roll around in empty strollers, but the type that are the byproduct of the game, "What if So-N-So and Wassername had a baby?" Some of my favorites include, "What if Reed Richards and Mystique had a baby?" or "What if Black Panther and Cheetarah had a baby?" or best "What if JC and Tina Fey had a baby?" They all have interesting answers. The one we're working on today is "What if Anne Rice and Edgar Allen Poe had a baby, and Matt Groening held the camcorder during delivery?" That's kind of what we're dealing with when we look at Baltimore: The Play.
