Victor LaValle’s Destroyer #2 (of 6)
Written by Victor LaValle
Art by Dietrich Smith
Colors by Joana Lafuente
Letters by Jim Campbell
Cover by Micaela Dawn
BOOM! Studios
Release Date: June 21, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

I seldom like modern twists on what I would consider a classical piece of literature, even when I’m not a huge fan of the original work. There is something almost perverse about modifying something that old. However, I will be the first to admit that sometimes what I think is going to be a modification or a reboot is instead an invigorating chapter or work unto itself. Case in point, Victor LaValle’s Destroyer #2 is a spectacular sequence of events that do not in any way tarnish Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Never would I have thought this would entrance me so.

Plague #2
Written by Dennis MaGee Fallon and Jason Palmatier

Letters by Dave Sharpe
Markosia Comics
Release Date: June 7, 2017
Cover Price: $1.99

A few months back I had the distinct pleasure of reviewing a new comic that truly appealed to me in several ways. First in a series, Plague #1 was a remarkable change from the ho-hum average comic, for it gracefully blended true history with high fantasy. This newest installment, Plague #2, picks up right where the last issue left off and manages to cover a lot of proverbial ground. Keep reading to find out more!

‘LOST,’ ‘The Leftovers’ Co-Creator Damon Lindelof In Talks For ‘Watchmen’ HBO Series
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Watchmen

Back in 2015 we found out that HBO was considering a TV series based on the Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons graphic novel Watchmen.

At the time Zack Snyder, who directed the 2009 film adaptation of the comic, was also attached to the potential HBO series. Snyder has since departed the project, but now a new talent could be coming aboard. It’s being reported that Damon Lindelof, co-creator and showrunner on LOST and HBO’s The Leftovers, is currently in talks to join the project.

The Unsound #1
Written by Cullen Bunn
Art by Jack T. Cole
Letters by Jom Campbell
Covers by Jack T. Cole, David Lafuente, Michael Dialynas
BOOM! Studios
Release Date: June 7, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

I’m pretty much game for anything written by Cullen Bunn, therefore it should come as no shock that The Unsound #1 would make its way onto my desk. Always creepy and a little twisted, his horror stories tend to be dependable sources of entertainment and each comic series unique.

This one finds a nurse making her way to her first day at work at a mental institution. But as she makes her way there, we see the world outside is just as dark, twisted, and suffering as anything that could be inside the hospital. That is, until we see what is inside.

Well, it has happened. If you remember the Kickstarter Spotlight I did back in October of last year, then you’ll understand how excited I am.

You know you want to know more, so keep on reading and I’ll give you the gory details!

Cannon Cove, Oregon has nothing going for it except that once upon a time, long ago, a movie that was destined to become a kids’ cult classic was filmed there. You might have heard of it: The Gloomies*. You know that Gloomies never say die, right? Too bad the town never lived by that motto.

In Misfit City #1 we watch as local kids find a real adventure in their little hometown.

Comics For Free Comic Book Day 2017

Free Comic Book Day banner

Well, folks, it is that time again. It’s time for Free Comic Book Day! On May 6, 2017, comic and book shops across the known ‘verse will offer up exclusive comics to patrons for free. But it’s not just about dropping in and grabbing free loot and bailing. No, friends, this is the day you need to get out and show your appreciation for these stores. Because while the comics are free to you, they are not free to the shopkeepers. They buy those for distribution as a way of thanking us for our business. And what better way to pay it forward is there than to drop a few bucks in their businesses? I’ll leave it to you and your conscience, but know that what you do on FCBD will affect what the shops are able to do in the future. My local comic shop closed, certainly you would not want the same fate for yours, would you? Click here to find a participating comic shop near you!

But all the peer pressure aside, let us take a look at what the day will bring us in the way of comics. But remember, every shop may not have every title.

With this week seeing the release of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 in theaters, it seems prudent that I throw a little love towards the franchise by presenting to you Guardians of the Galaxy: Creating Marvel’s Spacefaring Super Heroes: The Complete Comics History.

With almost fifty years of history to draw from this oversized, nay…massive tome explores the various incarnations of the rag-tag universe-saving group of misfits that seem to have finally gotten the love and respect they’ve deserved for decades.
