Dept. H Volume 1: Pressure HC
Story and Art by Matt Kindt

Letters by Marie Enger
Cover and Chapter Breaks by Matt Kindt
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: January 18, 2017
Cover Price: $19.99

Matt Kindt does it again with this masterpiece of a story. Dept. H Volume 1: Pressure is first and foremost a crime story. Just because it happens over a half dozen miles beneath the ocean’s surface is purely circumstantial, right? And if it was your father that was killed, would the location be too much for you? Of course not.

So when Mia is approached to investigate the death of her father in an underwater research facility, she did her duty as both an investigator and as a daughter, she went where she was needed. But with only a handful of suspects, one of whom is her brother, she has to tread carefully.

Art by Tyler Jenkins
Letters by Colin Bell
Cover by Tyler Jenkins
Boom! Studios
Release Date: January 18, 2017

Sometimes a story touches you to your core, makes you relive things from your past that you were better off not remembering. And sometimes all of this happens to a character in a story to whom you can relate all too well.

In Snow Blind, which comes from Ollie Masters, Tyler Jenkins, and Boom! Studios, teenager Teddy discovers that his entire family history is not quite what he thought it was. And when he tries to learn the truth, it gets buried beneath even more lies. One innocuous moment avalanches into a life or death situation.

The Shadow Glass
Written by Aly Fell

Letters by Nate Piekos of Blambot
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: January 4, 2017
Cover Price: $19.99

I remember when I reviewed the first issue of this series, back in March. I found the premiere issue to be both entertaining and intriguing. Now, after seeing the first six issues brought together in this graphic novel, nothing has changed in my mind. The Shadow Glass is one of my favorite comics of 2016.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, folks! And what way to show some holiday spirit than with a one-shot comic like Klaus and the Witch of Winter! Who doesn’t like the idea of a beer-drinking bad-ass Santa with a take no crap attitude? Certainly not me, I’ll tell you that for nothing.

Comic Review: Wonder Woman ’77 Meets The Bionic Woman #1

Wonder Woman ’77 Meets The Bionic Woman #1 banner

Wonder Woman ’77 Meets The Bionic Woman #1
Written by Andy Mangels
Art by Judit Tondora
Colors by Michael Bartolo and Stuart Chaifetz
Letters by Tom Orzechowski and Lois Buhalis
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: December 7, 2016
Cover Price: $3.99

This revival of iconic characters from my youth has been extraordinarily hit or miss, but in the case of Wonder Woman ’77 Meets The Bionic Woman #1, it is certainly a home run. I was always a huge fan of Lynda Carter’s Wonder Woman, but only occasionally watched The Bionic Woman. Not sure if it was a schedule conflict or what; I remember liking the 1970s Lindsay Wagner show, but just not seeing it often. Now, our friends at Dynamite Entertainment have teamed up with DC Comics to bring us one of the best TV titan team-ups ever!

Audiobook Spotlight: Star Wars: Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel

Star Wars: Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel

Star Wars: Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel
Hardcover | Kindle | Digital Audiobook | Audio CD
Written by James Luceno
Read by Jonathan Davis
Del Rey | Random House Audio
Release Date: November 15, 2016

Welcome, one and all to my very first Audiobook Spotlight! With the theatrical release of Star Wars: Rogue One just days away, I wanted to make sure you know there is an amazing audiobook that’s out and ready to bridge the prequels and the original trilogy. Written by James Luceno and read by Jonathan Davis, Star Wars: Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel is an unabridged recording of the novel, so you won’t miss a single detail from the story. The great thing about listening to a book, rather than reading one, is that you can multitask and accomplish other things like chores, workouts, or homework! I prefer to listen to them while driving, but make sure you’re not one of those really passionate readers who gets so into the story that you forget what you’re doing! Here at Geeks Of Doom, we support Safe Audiobook Consumption.

Book Review: Dungeons & Dragons: Dungeonology

Dungeons & Dragons: Dungeonology
Hardcover
Written by Matt Forbeck
Illustrations by Matt Forbeck
Candlewick Press
Release Date: October 21, 2016
Cover Price: $24.99

Once upon a time, I was the manager of a Waldenbooks. It was a magical time that spanned nearly a decade and included some of the greatest moments of my life. I loved discussing books with my patrons and always made time to introduce people to new authors and genres. But far surpassing all of that was watching children discover a love of reading. Some were encouraged by family while others found it on their own. Towards the end of that era, a new type of book was finding its way onto bookshelves across the land: the ‘Ology series. It started simply enough, appealing to the general public with enough interactive items within its pages that it created a niche with readers. Unabated, this trend has diversified enough that we have been given something I never thought I would see: Dungeons & Dragons: Dungeonology, a Forgotten Realms ‘Ology. If I wasn’t forty-six, I would probably squee with delight.

Nevermind, it happened anyway.
