Buzz!
Trade Paperback | Kindle Edition
Written by Ananth Panagariya
Illustrated by Tessa Stone
Edited by James Lucas Jones
Cover by Tessa Stone
Oni Press
Release Date: April 9, 2014
Cover Price: $19.99

Words can be powerful weapons, and in the case of Buzz!, the latest graphic novel from Oni Press, this idea has never been truer. Written by Ananth Panagariya with art from Tessa Stone, comes an action-packed spelling bee extravaganza that will surely have you studying your dictionary.

Before anxious Webster heads off for his first day of high school, his sister tells him to “stay away from the trouble makers.” Unfortunately for Webster, this proves to be an immediate problem as he stumbles across an underground spelling bee in which the contestants are literally physically beaten by the words spelled against them. The gladiatorial-like combat scares Webster more than he’d like, even after he’s inadvertently thrust into and wins a match in the competition.

Cover A | Cover B
Cover Price: $3.99

Let’s be honest, I KNEW I was going to like Flash Gordon #1, but what I had NO idea about, was that I was going to absolutely LOVE it! Seriously, in one issue it’s all ready my favorite Flash comic since the 1980s.

OK, so you’re launching a comic series that is based on something that is, at it’s very core, FUN. Light-hearted. Lively. And, witty. So, your obvious choice? Jeff. Parker. The man who has written a ton of comics, none of which have made anyone want to shoot themselves in the head. He’s the guy who brought all the fun, charm, and wit out of the Batman ’66 TV show and put it into comic form! But, let’s stick to this book.

Movie Review: Jodorowsky’s Dune

Jodorowsky's Dune

Jodorowsky’s Dune
Director: Frank Pavich
Cast: Alejandro Jodorowsky, Brontis Jodorowsky, H. R. Giger, Chris Foss, Michel Seydoux, Gary Kurtz, Nicolas Winding Refn, Drew McWeeny
Sony Pictures Classics | Snowfort Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 90 Minutes
Release Date: April 25, 2014

“What is to give light must endure burning.” – Viktor E. Frankl

Directed by Adam Pavich, Jodorowsky’s Dune chronicles director Alejandro Jodorowsky‘s unsuccessful attempt to adapt Frank Herbert’s 1965 science fiction novel Dune in the ’70s. The documentary features interviews with the principal players involved in the failed ’70s adaptation as well as filmmakers and industry professionals who have been inspired by Jodorowsky’s legendary effort.

In 1973, film producer Arthur P. Jacobs optioned the film rights to Dune but died before a feature film could be developed. Two years later, the option fell into the hands of Chilean-French filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky, known for avant-garde works like El Topo and Holy Mountain. Jodorowsky wanted to deliver a truly psychedelic experience with Dune – a film so mind-melting and illuminating, it would induce a hallucinogenic “trip” like LSD.

Remnants: Season of Wonder
Hardcover | Paperback | Kindle Edition
Written by Lisa T. Bergren
Blink | Zondervan Publishing House
Release Date: April 8, 2014
Cover Price: $15.99

Gifted Remnants and their Knight Protectors have been training always for the prophesied day they would rise up against the Sheol in the name of the Maker, and lead the people of faith out of oppression. Andriana’s gift of empathy is both power and pain as she feels everything that is inflicted upon her, and feels everything she inflicts simultaneously. This includes the forbidden feelings that are growing between her and her Knight Rowan.

They both narrowly escape their village on the day they are called, to journey to join the rest of the Ailith, the other gifted. The people of this dystopian world, who have forgotten the world of books and technology, are not allowed to believe in the Maker and to speak his word or exhibit his power means torture or death. The Ailith are drawn to one another and their belief in the will of their Maker guide their path to find their imprisoned prince, Kapriel.

Judge Dredd: The Complete Cam Kennedy, Vol. 2
Hardcover
Story by John Wagner
Art by Cam Kennedy
IDW Publishing
Release Date: April 15, 2014
Cover Price:$49.99

Scottish comics artist Cam Kennedy, whose work has graced the pages of titles as diverse as Batman, Star Wars: Dark Empire, and Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., is once again the star attraction of IDW Publishing’s latest hardbound collection of the violent and satirical adventures of Mega-City One’s toughest lawman in Judge Dredd: The Complete Cam Kennedy, Vol. 2.

Coming nearly a year since the release of the first volume in the series spotlighting Kennedy’s artistic contribution to the iconic character, the stories (or “progs”) collected in The Complete Cam Kennedy, Vol. 2 feature such Dredd classics as “No Man’s Land,” “Big Deal at Drekk City,” “Beyond Our Kenny” (from Judge Dredd Megazine vol.1 # 1-3), and many more from Kennedy’s celebrated run in the pages of Britain’s famous comics anthology 2000 A.D.. Dredd co-writer Alan Grant provides an introduction for this volume.

Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: April 9, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

Kings Watch #5 is seriously one of the most stunning comics that I’ve read in MONTHS. And I read a LOT of comics. It’s not your usual licensed comic fare. I really hope that Dynamite picks up this ball and runs with it; they could get a lot of mileage out of the conclusion of this series.

Jeff Parker turns in an absolutely incredible script that had more twists and turns than I could possibly count. This is not your typical “all the heroes save the day” comic. I never saw any of this coming in the issues leading up to this issue. Now I wish that this mini series was actually an ongoing, because I think there’s more than enough story here to carry one for years.

Comic Review: The 7th Sword #1

The 7th Sword #1 cover header

The 7th Sword #1
Created and Written by John Raffo
Pencils and Inks by Nelson Blake II
Colors by Dave McCaig
Letters by Troy Peteri
IDW Publishing
Release Date: April 23, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

What do you get when you cross a samurai with a planet that is constantly in the midst of civil war? Why, you get The 7th Sword #1, of course! On what appears to be a world somewhat akin to Dune, we have a warrior (now ronin) who was left behind with not much more than his sword and his wits. This is the first of seven issues that account for the actions of Daniel Cray and his deadly sword called a Malathane.

Having been left behind on Helios when the army with which he was serving retreated, Cray found himself doing odd mercenary jobs for survival. After an accident left him stranded and lost, he was rescued by a group living in the mythical ZenZion who think him the enemy. After the true villains attack, he finds himself defending this oasis…all the while still suspect. There’s a lot more to the story but suffice to say you’ll need to read it to stay on top of everything that’s going on here. This first issue is setting up the rest of the miniseries so it feels incomplete on many levels, but that’s to be expected, I suppose.
