Cover by Derek Charm, Nelson Daniel, Nick Roche & Nelson Daniel
IDW Publishing
Release Date: July 19, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

I certainly hope you took my advice last month and read the first issue of this series because Clue #2 is where the action is and I would hate to think you were not up to speed with the goings on after the death of A. Boddy. With so many suspects, though, it will be difficult for the two detectives on site to catch the villain. And now, one more person is found murdered!

What do you get when cross the girl next door with a little bit of risqué photography? Why Bettie Page, of course! Add in a tad of espionage and you get Bettie Page #1! This comic book series from Dynamite Entertainment is based quite loosely on one of the greatest pin-up models of all time. And while she is renowned for her fearless attitude on and off camera, this explores her “secret diaries” that have been kept from the public until now.

Cover by Jae Lee, June Chung, Andre De Freitas
BOOM! Studios
Release Date: July 19, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

Sisters of Sorrow #1 is possibly one of the most violent comics I have read in months. So obviously I loved it from start to finish, of course. You know that saying that starts with “Hell hath no fury…” and has been around longer than we can remember? Yeah, it’s not wrong and this comic is a perfect reflection of that same righteous anger.

Skin & Earth #1
Written, Illustrated, and Lettered by Lights
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: July 12, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

The world has changed, nothing is as it was. The line between the haves and the have-nots has widened, delineated by the wall that separates them physically. But more than that, in Skin & Earth #1 there is an emotional difference in where you live. It is reinforced by the quality of life or lack thereof. For a student like En Jin, who sees the way the others live in luxury, it is a terrible blow to her already fragile psyche.

Nothing makes me smile like reading something about my favorite wizard and private investigator, Harry Dresden. That’s why Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files: Dog Men #2 is the first piece I am writing on this glorious first day of my vacation. But it gets even better. Senior White Council member Listens-To-Wind has joined forces with our beloved Chicagoan to look into some strange happenings in a small secluded town.

Art by Nelson Daniel
Letters by Neil Uyetake
Cover by Gabriel Rodriguez, Valentina Pinto
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: June 7, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

I really shouldn’t have to even explain the concept here. Few people are unfamiliar with this game and hopefully they have even seen the amazing cult classic (or at least it should be) motion picture released in the eighties. Clue #1 is the very first comic adaptation of the Hasbro game of which I have a multitude of variations in my possession.

Book Review: The Bones Of The Earth: A Bound Gods Novel By Rachel Dunne

The Bones Of The Earth
A Bound Gods Novel (Book 2)
Paperback | Kindle
By Rachel Dunne
Harper Voyager
Release Date: June 27, 2017

It’s been almost exactly a year since I wrote a review extolling the virtues of Rachel Dunne‘s debut novel In The Shadow Of The Gods. I heaped praise upon it for the beautiful setting and extensive world building that she had created. It is therefore safe to assume that I was not at all hesitant to dive into the sequel so as to write a review prior to the release. Unfortunately, my expectations were set too high it seems. The Bones Of The Earth was not at all what I expected.

Read on to find out more.

Release Date: June 14, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

Is it just me or does there seem to be an uptick in the number of Sherlock Holmes adaptations/re-imaginings of late? Movies, television, comics, you name it. Luckily, quite a few of them have been entertaining and, in some cases, astounding. It seems only fair then that we have a version for all ages, one that the kiddos will enjoy and with which they might identify. Kid Sherlock #1 fits the bill with plenty to offer all readers.
