Matt Kindt Black Badge #1 review

Black Badge #1
Writer: Matt Kindt
Illustrator: Tyler Jenkins
Colorist: Hilary Jenkins
Letterer: Jim Campbell
BOOM! Studios
Cover Price: $3.99
Release date: August 8th, 2018

When I was growing up, being a Boy Scout was pretty fun. I enjoyed the camping, the fishing, the marshmallows, learning things that I didn’t learn in my regular classes. Sadly, I never advanced far enough in scouts to be recruited into the wing of the BSA that trained young men to become black ops field agents. That actually may not be such a bad thing.

Black Badge #1 is a fairly standard first issue in that it sets up the basic premise of four Boy Scouts going into the woods in North Korea and then everything goes kooky. In all honesty, there’s not that much that happens in this issue beyond setting up the premise and setting up the cast and getting us to ask a few questions, which is fine. Writer Matt Kindt knows how to set up first issues for these types of series, and he works well at establishing all the elements you need to hook you into the series.

Apparently, I have missed some amazing comics lately. Ether: The Copper Golems #1 is the first issue of the second series. That’s right, second series. So guess who gets to go shopping for some back issues? That’s right, this guy. But before I do, let me tell you a little about this comic gem.

Okay, first off, if I have to try to convince you to buy a comic that contains eight premiere issues for a measly six bucks then I might just have to reassess what I am doing here.

I have reviewed any number of these titles at different times and I cannot even begin to stress to you how great of a deal this is. Dark Horse Comics continues to amaze me with their marketing strategies. I can think of no better way to test out some new comics than with this compilation. Folks, I present to you Dark Horse Number Ones!

Dept. H Volume 1: Pressure header

Dept. H Volume 1: Pressure HC
Story and Art by Matt Kindt
Colors by Sharlene Kindt
Letters by Marie Enger
Cover and Chapter Breaks by Matt Kindt
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: January 18, 2017
Cover Price: $19.99

Matt Kindt does it again with this masterpiece of a story. Dept. H Volume 1: Pressure is first and foremost a crime story. Just because it happens over a half dozen miles beneath the ocean’s surface is purely circumstantial, right? And if it was your father that was killed, would the location be too much for you? Of course not.

So when Mia is approached to investigate the death of her father in an underwater research facility, she did her duty as both an investigator and as a daughter, she went where she was needed. But with only a handful of suspects, one of whom is her brother, she has to tread carefully.

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
Written by Matt Kindt

Cover art by Lewis LaRosa, Dave Johnson, Rafa Sandoval, Antonio Fuso & Brian Reeber
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!”?

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.

Divinity #1 review

Divinity #1
Written by Matt Kindt
Pencils by Trevor Hairsine
Inks by Ryan Winn
Colors by David Baron
Letters by Dave Lanphear
Covers by Jelena Kevic Djurdjevic, Tom Muller, Tom Muller and Trevor Hairsine, and Lewis LaRosa with Brian Reber
Valiant Entertainment
Release Date: February 11, 2015
Cover Price: $3.99

Alternative history has always fascinated me, mainly because our past is full of pivotal points in time. If we were to alter a single incident, what else would change? Similarly, time travel offers the exact same scenarios unless you are among those who believe that fate is decreed and cannot be changed. The only reason I mention this is because Divinity #1 works on the premise that during the Cold War, the Soviets were far more advanced than we Americans were. But as oftentimes happens, fledgling science has repercussions. Which leads us to our story…

Mind MGMT #23 review header image

Mind MGMT #23
Written by Matt Kindt
Artwork by Matt Kindt
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: June 25, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

Issue 23 of Mind MGMT is here to remind you — we are all forgetful sometimes — that this is a series about many things, but focused on Meru; she is the main character, and don’t you forget again.

Unlike when the monk was able to see her as a majestic warrior, the reminder is done differently this time, but the effect is similar. It is easy to get caught up in the other aspects of Matt Kindt’s fascinating, lovely series about miserable people with fantastic and unique mental powers. Powers that contribute to their misery and woe. So a gentle, or ferocious, reminder is needed at times.
