Steven Lee (infused with the Tiger) and his Zodiac team have traveled the world as heroes, learning about their inner powers along the way. Ever since they defeated Maxwell, and took the Dragon away from him (well Jasmine did), they have been honing their team skills as well. Even the government sometimes asks them for help discreetly. But just because Maxwell has vanished does not mean the battle is over yet. And here is where The Zodiac Legacy: The Dragon’s Return by Stan Lee and Stuart Moore begins.

The Zodiac Legacy: Convergence
Hardcover | Kindle Edition | Audiobook
Written by Stan Lee and Stuart Moore
Illustrated by Andie Tong
Disney Press
Release Date: January 27, 2015
Cover Price: $16.99

American-born Chinese teenager Steven Lee is on a class trip to a museum in Hong Kong, and instantly knows something is off. He follows some screams into an underground cavernous room with weird shimmering green pools, and his life will never be the same. Zapped with the Chinese zodiac Tiger sign, Steven is now filled with the power of The Tiger, which he must learn to control. There he meets a dragon-filled Jasmine and a techie Carlos on a mission to stop the evil Maxwell, who has already harnessed the power of 7 of the 12 signs. The rest of the signs have escaped to find the people they should belong to, and Jasmine, Carlos, and Steven must find those soon-to-be-surprised-and-confused powerful teens before Maxwell does and sucks the power from them. Can they help the others? Will they stop Maxwell? I cannot tell you that, but I can tell you that how you think the book will end is not how it does. You gotta love a twist!

MacGyver: The Fugitive Gauntlet #5 is bittersweet. I’ve loved this series SO MUCH, that while I’m excited to see how everything concludes, I’m sorry to see this miniseries end.

For the past four issues Lee David Zlotoff and Tony Lee have written an absolute perfect comic book based on the television series with all the hallmarks and standards of the MacGyver television show, and this issue is no exception. Everything comes to a head this issue, and it’s a great wrap up to the series. There’s TONS of twists and turns and some classic MacGyver gadget-making and using household cleaning tools to do some amazing feats. It’s very well written and just when you think things are settled, we get another few pages of wrap up. A great ending to this series.

Wow! You get more action in MacGyver: The Fugitive Gauntlet #4 than you do in most action movies! It’s a great read, just like the previous 3 issues, and the next issue can’t get here fast enough.

I hope writers Lee David Zlotoff & Tony Lee plan on doing an ongoing MacGyver series. Or, at the very least, one mini-series a year. I really need my MacGyver fix after reading this series. This issue, like the ones before it, is packed with action, drama, fun, and…knowledge! I now know how to make tear gas and smoke bombs out of household items. You’ve been warned. This is CLASSIC MacGyver. Inventions, betrayal, drama, action, this book has got it all. One of the most entertaining books I’ve read in quite a while.

In the world of licensed comics, there’s the good, the bad, and the awesome. Sometimes a writer loves the franchise a little TOO much, and more often than not, that leads to bad comics. In other cases, the writer knows NOTHING about the franchise and that leads to a lack of proper characterization and messy story lines. Then, there’s cases where the creative team is dead on perfect for the property and everything meshes into a beautiful blend of a great story, awesome art, and it makes pretty much the perfectly enjoyable comic book. Thankfully, MacGyer #1 is that comic.

Tron: BetrayalTron: Betrayal
Paperback
Writer: Jai Nitz
Pencils: Andie Tong and Jeff Matsuda
Inks: Pete Pantazis
Marvel Comics
Release Date: November 16, 2010

In the nearly thirty years between the events of Tron and Tron: Legacy, a lot has happened in Kevin Flynn’s life. Legacy gives the viewer all the basic information needed to understand and enjoy the events that take place, but for those who want the whole story, Tron: Betrayal gives you that and much more.

Kevin Flynn is a man torn between two worlds. In the real world he is the head of ENCOM, a Fortune 500 corporation, and a father-to-be. He is also the creator of a digital world that has undergone some drastic change in its short existence. The program TRON helps to keep order and security in the grid while Flynn is gone, but the expanding world needs more than just order. The amount of attention needed in both worlds has run Flynn down, so he creates CLU, a program in his own image to run the grid in his stead. CLU is charged by Flynn with creating “the perfect system” and he takes this task very seriously, going to extreme lengths to ensure its success. As a divide begins between CLU and Flynn’s definition of perfection, Flynn’s real-world responsibilities keep him away from the grid for longer periods of time than usual. The division between the grid’s creator and its supervisor is reaching a boiling point, all while Flynn is trying to raise his newborn son and still maintain an active role at ENCOM.
