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.

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.

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.

Imagine a dimension where in 1958 the whole world goes wonky and suddenly there is no electricity, no technology. But as a trade off, mankind is presented with divinity.

Well, almost everyone, as we see in Godshaper #1.

Ladycastle #1 is candid look into what would happen if all the knights and soldiers went off to war and (mostly) got themselves killed. Bordering on satirical, this story focuses on a group of ladies that refuse to accept the roles that their society tries to place on them. From a picky princess who isn’t going to marry a prince just because the king insists, to a blacksmith’s wife who is apparently just as good of a ‘smith as her husband.

Sometimes a story touches you to your core, makes you relive things from your past that you were better off not remembering. And sometimes all of this happens to a character in a story to whom you can relate all too well.

In Snow Blind, which comes from Ollie Masters, Tyler Jenkins, and Boom! Studios, teenager Teddy discovers that his entire family history is not quite what he thought it was. And when he tries to learn the truth, it gets buried beneath even more lies. One innocuous moment avalanches into a life or death situation.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, folks! And what way to show some holiday spirit than with a one-shot comic like Klaus and the Witch of Winter! Who doesn’t like the idea of a beer-drinking bad-ass Santa with a take no crap attitude? Certainly not me, I’ll tell you that for nothing.

Release Date: June 8, 2016
Cover Price: $0.99 (digital)

Looks like my birthday came a little early! Nothing makes me happier than seeing a little throwback to my youth, especially when it’s a crossover of two of my favorite shows. Batman ’66 Meets Steed and Mrs. Peel #1 brings my favorite DC hero face to face with my favorite British television characters (my apologies to The Doctor, but it’s true). I still stop and watch any Avengers episodes whenever I find them on television. And of course, Batman is probably more popular in my house than I am.

But enough about me, on to the review!
