Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: September 10, 2014
Cover Price: $19.99

I’ve always felt that I could count on Dark Horse Comics to give me unparalleled supernatural stories. I mean, no matter what is going on, they always have some of the greatest (and darkest) writers around. Hell, Lovecraft would have read these comics! My one gripe, though, is that it’s sometimes difficult to jump into a series because of all the back story and history that goes into their long running books. Take this one, for instance: B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth, Volume 9: The Reign of the Black Flame doesn’t just have a lengthy title, it’s also got a metric ton of plot lines that have preceded this one. Which leads me to my problem…

Annihilator #1 review
Annihilator #1
Written by Grant Morrison
Art by Frazer Irving
Letters by Jared K. Fletcher
Legendary Comics
Release Date: September 10, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

Annihilator #1 from Legendary Comics is one of those rare books in the last few years written by Grant Morrison that is not set in the DC Universe. There have been a few series from him, but by and large, if you’ve wanted to read something by Morrison, it has involved DC characters.

Annihilator gives Morrison a chance to step out and work on something of his own. It also gives Morrison the chance to work with a frequent collaborator, Frazer Irving, which has led to some great comic books in the past.

Comic Review: A Frozen World

A Frozen World reviewA Frozen World
Story and Art by Nick Andors
Eyekon Publishing
Release Date: January 2014
Cover Price: $15.95

Welcome to Irongates, a city of the future that’s closer to being a figurative Hell on Earth. Its skyline is a gluttonous mass of crumbling, smoke-belching towers, and within their walls things happen that would irrevocably damage your psyche if you were to experience them up close. This is a world where lost souls subsist on a daily diet of violence, cruelty, perversion, and vice, and battle valiantly to hold on to their sanity as everything around them threatens to collapse into an unforgiving abyss.

This is A Frozen World, a daring, provocative, and startlingly beautiful crowd-sourced graphic novel written and illustrated by Nick Andors. Andors weaves a quartet of interlocking stories all set within the claustrophobic confines of Irongates, but each containing their share of disturbing visuals, characters you either pity or wouldn’t want to run into on the street late at night, and unique plot twists nearly impossible to see coming.

Love it or hate it, you will not soon forget A Frozen World.

Comic Review: Translucid #6

Translucid #6
Written by Claudio Sanchez & Chondra Echert
Art by Daniel Bayliss
Colors by Adam Metcalfe
Letters by Ed Dukeshire
Covers by Jeff Stokely
Evil Ink!/BOOM! Studios
Release Date: September 17, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

The first superhero story from the creative team of Claudio Sanchez and Chondra Echert (Key of Z, Kill Audio) wraps up this week with the final issue of Translucid, a story that deconstructs the relationship between hero and villain as we see the final showdown between The Navigator and The Horse. And let me tell you, it doesn’t go down the way you would think.

Essentially, Translucid asks the question, “What would happen if Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s Batman: The Killing Joke had gone a different way?” And that’s exactly what this comic is… with a twist. Whereas Moore looks at the possible origin of The Joker, Team Sanchez explore the origins of their hero The Navigator. This is all established in previous issues, but reading it as a whole with issues 1-6, it not only becomes an homage to one of the most critically acclaimed comic book works, but it also becomes a companion piece.
