Comics (2150)

IDW has provided fans of comic book art some wonderful gifts over the past few years. Books of original illustrated stories by legends Jack Kirby, John Romita, Gil Kane, and others have allowed the general audience a backstage pass of how the original, hand-drawn stories appeared before production. This collection has now been expanded by another inspirational creator.

Never mind that the weakened sun no longer kills vampires and that Slayers (well, Slayer, since she’s the only one left) are persona non grata, Buffy’s trying to keep Thess – a Potential AND Willow and Tara’s daughter – alive. Oh, and the newly reformed Watchers’ Council is actually being headed by a vampire. Oh, and Spike is back… so y’know, complicated feelings all around.

Daisy #3 gives us a reunion to root for while explaining some of the mythology behind the story. While the mystery behind Conor’s disappearance is coming to light, the mystery behind Daisy’s existence and purpose feels to be deepening.

Who is your Mr. Right? Are you a gamer? Comic book fan? Like cutting-edge technology? Love action adventure? Teenage superheroes? A diverse cast? Enjoy movies like Free Guy? The Matrix? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, Apex Comics’ The R.I.G.H.T. Project is for you.

Scott Snyder and Tony S. Daniel’s high-octane series returns as Val, Emory, Bailey (Piper), and the Sundog convoy ride through the Dark PM and continue their mission to bring back the light to a world that’s literally gone dark. And although our heroes are on a new path to save the world, old and new enemies alike will prove too much for some to handle.

Throughout comic book history, readers have seen faraway places and heroes of all shape and size. What happens when you combine Indiana Jones and a post- apocalyptic future? How about spotlighting a corner of the globe that's not normally the focus of a comic book story, so unique that the very creators of the book come from that unexplored part of the Earth? Can a new mythology grow from characters and situations which are out of the ordinary?

The end of BOOM!’s current Buffy the Vampire Slayer series is here! Issue #34 generally ties up some loose ends, sets a few characters off in new directions, and gives the Scoobies a moment of reprieve before the next Big Bad inevitably breathes down their neck.

The more I learn about the characters in Clodagh, the more I want to know about them. In this world of magic and monsters, each of the main characters seems to have a dark and mysterious past, dealing with such things. Details of what brought any of them to this point are, heretofore, scarce, but then it’s only the second issue.

Quick recap: With two legendary kings fighting over the land, Bridgette’s idea to meet a third legendary king seemed a tad batty, but then again, why not add another player to the board?
