Sand Bone Header

Sand + Bone
Written by J.T. Krul
Illustrated by Andrea Mutti
Adaptive Studios
Release Date: April 18th, 2017
Offered exclusively at Barnes and Noble

Sean Hitcher is suffering, inside and out. Just home from Iraq, there is no peace from his torment, as every time he closes his eyes he is transported back to the real hell on Earth. Addicted to drugs, and willing to do anything (except counseling) to silence his inner demons, he runs into his former love at the pharmacy. She seems very worried and reveals her divorce and the new love of her life – her son. He takes off, because the drugs he can’t get are the only thing keeping the nightmares at bay, plus he seems to want to get away from her concern.

This is the setup for Sand + Bone written by J.T. Krul, and illustrated by Andrea Mutti.

Plague #1
Written by Dennis MaGee Fallon and Jason Palmatier
Art by Zach Brunner
Letters by Dave Sharpe
Markosia Comics
Release Date: March 29, 2017
Cover Price: $1.99

You might remember a couple of months ago I reviewed a comic titled Lords of the Cosmos #1. I found it to be entertaining and unique for the most part. Well, the same writers have a new offering for us by the name of Plague #1! And while the subject matter is remarkably different, the same pizzazz remains.

The year is 1352 and the bubonic plague is sweeping through Europe and killing people by the millions. Sadly, more than mankind is suffering; even the fey have been struck by this blight upon the earth. As the faerie king lay dying, his son returns home to find him succumbing to the ravages of the Black Death. It is upon that deathbed that the prince swears to save his folk at any cost.

Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: March 15, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

I don’t normally make a habit out of reviewing or spotlighting every issue in a mini-series, but with this one I cannot seem to help it. Wonder Woman ’77 Meets The Bionic Woman #3 continues to astound me and make me nostalgic for my childhood. Additionally, with March being Women’s History Month, it only seems fitting that we celebrate these iconic characters. Though, to be fair, I plan on celebrating this series each and every month regardless.

Neil Gaiman‘s award-winning, best-selling all-around amazing novel American Gods is soon to be a television series on Starz, but first, Dark Horse Comics has launched an ongoing comic book adaptation with American Gods: Shadows #1.

In this first issue, we’re introduced to Shadow Moon, who’s nearing the end of his 3-year prison sentence. He wants nothing more than to just go home and finally be reunited with his wife, Laura — well, that and to take a bubble bath. But one thing is clear, he’s going to stay out of trouble from now on and work on rebuilding his life. Unfortunately, days before his scheduled release, he learns the devastating news that Laura has died, leaving him lost with no sense of what the future holds for him.

Lettering by Janice Chiang
Storm King Comics
Release Date: October 11th, 2016
Cover Price: $24.99

“There’s a war coming to the City of Angels.”

John Carpenter’s name is synonymous with horror. For five decades, he has given fans nightmares with his legendary films, characters, and music. In 2013, one of the greatest horror movie directors of all time, Carpenter, stepped into another medium for his genre; comics. Along with his wife and co-writer Sandy King as well as actor/writer Thomas Ian Griffith (John Carpenter’s Vampires), the Halloween patriarch created his Storm King Productions line of comics, namely, Asylum. Asylum tells the story of a down and out priest Daniel Beckett, a man who sleeps around, smokes, curses, and has lost his connection. He is a demon hunter, and soon he’s the suspect in brutal murders chased by flawed but effective LAPD cop Jack Duran. When Duran’s son is kidnapped by a demon, enemies become partners and Duran and Beckett race against Hell itself to save him. Beckett is much more than meets the eye it turns out.

Fan favorite Blake Northcott begins her eight issue run on Aspen Comics’ flagship title Michael Turner’s All New Fathom #1 this month. We were happy to hear that Northcott was taking the lead on this comic as she has written a few articles here at Geeks of Doom and is like part of our extended family.

Therefore, having said that, it should come as no shock whatsoever that I chose to review this comic. And without further ado, let’s get to it shall we?

This is it, folks. This is what many of us have been waiting for. This is the year that Neil Gaiman takes over the world. Well, maybe not the whole world but he’s certainly trying to take over the literary world. With an upcoming Starz television series being adapted from his Hugo, Bram Stoker, Locus, World Fantasy, and Nebula award–winning novel American Gods, it seems only fitting that there be a comic version, too. Right? Thankfully, Dark Horse Comics has stepped up with American Gods: Shadows #1, the first of an ongoing series based on the aforementioned book. Other than a few teaser pages I haven’t had a chance to read it yet, but those look magnificent.

Lords Of The Cosmos #1
Written by Dennis Fallon and Jason Palmatier
Created and Drawn by Jason Lenox
Ugli Studios
Release Date: January 2017
Cover Price: $7.00 (includes shipping)

Independent comics have been a mainstay in my life for decades now. One of the best parts of this gig is access to so much indie work in addition to the mainstream companies. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times: the indie books are filled with love and created with passion. Lords Of The Cosmos #1 is certainly all that and more. I love that it was a successful Kickstarter campaign; it shows that I’m not alone in my excitement for this comic book.
