Humanoids’ “Life Drawn” selections are exactly that - human stories and personal adventures - and they’ve brought a lot of renewed attention to the world-famous company, especially here in the U.S., where Humanoids isn’t quite as well known.
The more complex Black Badge gets, the more I love it. This new series continues to feel more like a part of the Mind MGMT world than its initial three issues suggested that it might. It is already a part of the Grass Kings world. Could Kindt be creating a multifaceted universe much like Stephen King’s novels? The layout of the books and the additional content would also suggest this.
I’m buzzing. I’m sitting here, in mostly dark, my laptop on my lap and the PDF file for Gideon Falls #10 open, and my entire body is buzzing. If a writer were to ever find a muse, it would have to be Jeff Lemire finding Andrea Sorrentino and Dave Stewart.
Unfortunately for Eric, igniting a gang war doesn’t just wipe out the “bad guys,” and local law enforcement swoops in to investigate the sudden rekindling of hostilities. (The two gangs had a truce.) Meanwhile, our vigilante has fled the scene carrying newswoman Yvonne Price to safety on the back of his motorcycle; however, the Devil Marauders haven’t been entirely wiped out, and one straggler is willing to tap into some occult texts to find an opponent no one in our world has ever seen.
AHOY Comics will soon release the final issue of season 1 of Captain Ginger, its critically acclaimed title featuring cats in space. The publisher has been very generous to the Fanbase Press staff, as we are now able to share an advance preview of Captain Ginger #4 prior to the January 16th release date!
Modern Fantasy is a triumph of style with a ton of heart to spare. With nods to the fantasy genre, but more specifically Dungeons & Dragons, this story reads like something made by Judd Apatow. It’s funny, weird, and relatively progressive. Though it might share some similarities with other fantasy parody content as of late (i.e., Disenchanted), let that not sway you from giving it a shot. In my opinion, this is better than Disenchanted and has much more to offer.
In the days before the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, a sandstorm on Jakku reveals the final resting place of the Imperial Star Destroyer Spectral. The lost behemoth has become the stuff of legends in the years since the fall of the Empire, and the dwellers of Nima Outpost believe it to be haunted.
The third issue of Dark Horse Comics’ Alien 3: The Unproduced Screenplay drops this week, giving fans of the Aliens franchise another look at the “what if” scenario created by writer William Gibson’s unused third chapter for the iconic sci-fi film franchise. Featuring the return of beloved characters like Colonial Marine Corporal Hicks, the android Bishop, and the little girl known as Newt (last survivor of the xenomorph infestation which overtook her colony on LV-426). Adapting Gibson’s vision, the creative team of Johnnie Christmas (adaptation script and art) Tamra Bonvillain (colors), and Nate Paikos (letters) uses the third issue to pull readers even deeper into the terrifying and nihilistic biological arms race taking place between Weyland-Yutani Corporation and the U.P.P. (Union of Progressive Peoples) that will lead to a horrific outcome which has been teased since the Alien franchise's inception.
