The Disciples #1
The Disciples #1
Written by Steve Niles
Art by Christopher Mitten
Colors by Jay Fotos
Letters by Thomas Mauer
Black Mask Studios
Release Date: May 27, 2015
Cover Price: $3.99

Part bounty hunter saga with nods to Alien and Firefly, The Disciples starts off with a slow build that turns into a big bang in the first issue of what may shape up to be a very exciting series.

The Disciples #1 starts with three companions heading to Ganymede, one of Jupiter’s moons. It and the other moons in the solar system have recently been colonized in a Gold Rush-style land rush. Ganymede was settled by a religious cult (that started in Florida, obviously). One of the members of this cult is the daughter of a senator, and our three heroes have been sent to bring her back.

Black MaskBlack Mask
Blu-ray (1997)
Starring Jet Li, Karen Mok, Chin Wan Lau
Lionsgate
Release Date: September 2, 2008

In an effort to cash in Jet Li’s crossover from Hong Kong to America, several of Li’s movies were re-dubbed and re-packaged for the American population. One of these films was the high-flying Black Mask.

Based on a comic book, Black Mask tells the story of Michael, played by Jet Li. Michael is part of a secret group of super soldiers commissioned by an unknown government entity. Known as “The 701,” these men and women are virtually impervious to pain, thanks in part to an experiment, which destroyed the nerve endings in their bodies. When the project is shut down and the soldiers are decommissioned, Michael seizes his opportunity and escapes. Fast-forward to the present where Michael is living a quiet and content life as a librarian. All is well until the 701 reappear, leaving mayhem and destruction in their path. Michael has no choice but face his “friends” head on in an effort to preserve his normal life as the superhero Black Mask.
