Comic Spotlight: The Unsound #1

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.

Comic Review: Amala’s Blade: Spirits of Naamaron

Amalas Blade cover by Michael DialynasAmala’s Blade: Spirits of Naamaron
Written by Steve Horton
Illustrated by Michael Dialynas
Colored by Michael Dialynas
Lettered by Steve Horton
Cover by Michael Dialynas
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: February 4, 2014
Cover Price: $18.99

Back in May of 2013, I had the privilege to review issue number two of Steve Horton and Michael Dialynas’ Amala’s Blade. I am thrilled to have now been able to review the trade paperback, Amala’s Blade: Spirits of Naamaron. Read on for my thoughts on the collection as a whole.

Due to moral ambiguity and clashing ideologies, the kingdom of Naamaron is divided. The nation of the Purifiers — a people who live simplistic lives and are reliant on the power of steam — and the Modifier nation — those who worship technology and “modify” their bodies based on new advancements — are constantly on the verge of war. Caught in the middle is the world’s great assassin, Amala, a child runaway trained to be a ruthless killer. Now an adult, Amala is plagued by literal ghosts from her past, including her dead father who insists that her destiny could mean the end of the ongoing war and an indefinite time of peace.

Comic Review: Amala’s Blade #2

Amalas Blade #2Amala’s Blade #2
Written by Steve Horton
Illustrated by Michael Dialynas
Colored by Michael Dialynas
Lettered by Steve Horton
Cover by Michael Dialynas
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: May 29, 2013
Cover Price: $3.50

I’m always on the lookout for an exciting and unique assassin story. There’s something about attaining a glimpse into the life of such a secretive and deadly world—in which nothing is ever black and white—that really piques my interest. Steve Horton and Michael Dialynas have created a real gem with the genre-bending Amala’s Blade, and the second issue of Dark Horse’s miniseries steers the comic into a whole new world of awesome.

In a realm wrought with violence and warring nations, Amala is the best assassin around. She’s so gifted with her killer talent that there’s a large price on her head. Now, hired by the Vizier to eliminate a Purifier noble named Lady Strawbale, Amala must begin the most dangerous mission of her career. Not only will she need to figure out the best method of infiltrating the Purifier palace, but she must also evade bounty hunters in search of a reward and a horde of literal ghosts from her past; but what Amala does not realize is that her target may hold the key in bringing peace to the nations.

Exclusive: First Look At 5 Upcoming Covers From Dark Horse Comics

Dark Horse exclusive banner

Once again, Dark Horse Comics has given Geeks of Doom exclusive access to five great new comics coming in May and June. And you know what? We want to give you a sneak peek, too! Because trust me, these are some great books here. Check out all five covers here below!

First off, releasing on May 29, is King Conan: Hour of the Dragon #2 (of 6). This second installment in the adaptation of Robert E. Howard‘s only actual Conan novel is sure to please. I know the cover by Gerald Parel definitely gets you interested with that vicious claw reaching forth towards our hero. Then, just in case you didn’t get your Cimmerian fix with that one, we have Conan the Barbarian #17 arriving on June 19 with a wonderful aquatic cover by Massimo Carnevale (I loved his Orchid covers, too).

But the big release day is June 26! Showing off the Shu Yan cover to Akaneiro #2 (of 3), I find myself really interested in this set. Look how kickass she looks! Remember, this is based upon the new release from Spicy Horse Games (be sure to check that out, too). Next up is a comic that originally debuted in Dark Horse Presents: Amala’s Blade #3 (of 4) has a very eye-catching cover from Michael Dialynas. Although I know next to nothing about this miniseries, the sheer quantity of skulls in the art gets my attention. And last, but certainly not least, we get to show you Mind MGMT #12. MTV Geek named this comic one of the top ten comics in 2012. I’m impressed with this series across the board, especially since Matt Kindt is the only person working on this book…yeah, that’s right, he does it all!

A big thanks to Dark Horse for letting us have first crack at these wonderful comics. But enough from me, here is YOUR first look:
