Britannia #1 Header

Britannia #1
Written by Peter Milligan
Art by Juan Jose Ryp
Colors by Jordie Bellaire
Letters by Dave Sharpe
Covers by Cary Nord, Lewis Larosa and Brian Reber, Andres Guinaldo and Michael Spicer, Ryan Lee and Allen Passalaqua, Dave Johnson
Valiant Entertainment
Release Date: September 21, 2016
Cover Price: $3.99

I’m a sucker for all things historic. Even when they aren’t really all that historic. Take this comic, for instance. Britannia #1 is a dark, twisted tale that is set in Rome during the first century. This is the dawn of the Roman Empire as we all know it. But what if the myths and legends of the deities and demigods were based on actual events? This is the state of things as our story begins.

Read on for more details.

Ninjak #4 is a different kind of issue as the previous ones in the series. VERY different. If you’ve been enjoying the series, as I have, you’re going to either REALLY like this issue, or really NOT like this issue. Let me tell you what I thought.

Ninjak #3 review
Ninjak #3

Valiant Entertainment
Release Date: May 20, 2015
Cover Price: $3.99

Ninjak #3 could not be better than issue #2 was. At least, that’s what I thought. For some reason the creative team seems to be on a mission to make each issue better than the last, just to spite me. Do you know how hard it is writing these reviews, when I keep having to say “this book can’t possibly get any better!”?

The Following 3.11 "Demons"

The Following
Season 3 Episode 11: “Demons”
Created by Kevin Williamson
Directed by Marcos Siega
Written by Dave Johnson
Starring Kevin Bacon, James Purefoy, Shawn Ashmore, Sam Underwood, Valerie Cruz, Jessica Stroup, Michael Ealy, Zuleikha Robinson
FOX
Air Date: Monday, May 4th, 2015, 9:00pm

Last week the bell tolled for Joe Carroll. However… this is television, and James Purefoy needs work dammit! So now, Joe is acting as Ryan Hardy’s demon stalker and last week’s episode ended with Ryan (Kevin Bacon) tapping out on sobriety and giving in to shots with his imaginary serial killer friend. Will Joe’s influence help give Ryan what he needs to catch Theo?

Ryan follows his break with sobriety with a break from fidelity, and returning home wreaking of alcohol and sex are too much for Gwen (Zuleikha Robinson). Ryan still doesn’t know she’s pregnant, which I’m sure will come into play later at the absolute worst time.

Valiant Entertainment
Release Date: March 11, 2015
Cover Price: $3.99

I don’t know what I was expecting from Ninjak #1, but I was not expecting what I read in this first issue. It just goes to show that when a publisher puts some quality talent on a title with a great concept, the result is amazing comics!

Valiant Comics decided to put writer Matt Kindt on this book, and the result is nothing short of fantastic. When you have a concept that’s a mash-up of a James Bond-type spy and a super ninja, and you put a writer who’s got the chops of Matt Kindt, again, fantastic things happen.

The Witcher #1 cover by Dan Panosian and Dave JohnsonThe Witcher #1
Script by Paul Tobin
Art by Joe Querio
Colors by Carlos Badilla
Letters by Nate Piekos of Blambot
Cover by Dave Johnson and Dan Panosian
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: March 19, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

Welcome, my friends, to the dark and deadly world of Geralt. Known as a Witcher, he hunts and kills monsters as a profession. Based on the highly successful stories by Andrzej Sapkowski, The Witcher #1 is the first in a five-part mini-series from Dark Horse Comics. There are even a series of video games, a movie, and a television series in this franchise, but we are here to talk about the new comic series so let me get back on track.

Our story opens with a lone huntsman, Jakob, fishing for his dinner when Geralt rides into his camp. Making a bit of small talk and sharing food and drink, the hunter is startled when the Witcher jumps into the river and slays a monster with ease. Settling in for the night, Jakob tells Geralt the story of how he “sort of” became a widower. It seems Jakob and his wife Marta were traveling when they were attacked by a marauding band of evil creatures. And while his wife was taken from him, she never quite left him. Sometimes sensing her near, he has no fear. Though he is definitely haunted by the loss of his wife for whom he cares so much.

Denver cover banner

You want to give me the chance to interview Jimmy Palmiotti? Um, how about “Hell, yeah!” That’s pretty much what went through my head when GoD’s Dave3 sent me the email about it last week.

I knew going in that the point was to talk about the comics creator’s current Kickstarter campaign for his graphic novel Denver, but I found it difficult to resist asking a few non-comic questions, too. Have you ever wondered if Palmiotti is secretly a Backstreet Boys fan? Or maybe if he ever dreamed of being an X-Wing pilot? I wonder these things, too! But unfortunately, I didn’t inquire about that. So what did I ask? Well, you’ll just have to keep on reading to find out. But I bet he did want to fly an X-Wing, just saying…
