Art by Fernando Baldo
Colors by Nick Filardi

Cover and Chapter Break Art by Gabriel Hardman and Matthew Wilson

How exciting would it be to travel to another planet that holds remarkable similarities to our own? But what if you had to take a three-year trip just to get there? Of course, you are in a suspended animation during the journey but still…three years? That gives even the most curious folk pause. Especially when you consider the fact that staying on this new world for too long is deadly. But corporate greed makes the world(s) go ’round, so people still find themselves motivated to go. But for some people it’s not about the money. Deep Gravity gives us a bit of it all in the telling of this tale.

The Occultist, Volume 2 review header image

The Occultist, Volume 2: At Death’s Door
Created by Mike Richardson
Story by Mike Richardson and Tim Seeley
Script by Tim Seeley
Art by Mike Norton
Color by Allen Passalaqua
Letters by Nate Piekos of Blambot
Cover and Chapter Break Art by Steve Morris
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: June 25, 2014
Cover Price: $16.99

As I’m sure you probably gleaned from the title, this graphic novel is centered around mystical powers. And if that’s all that The Occultist, Volume 2: At Death’s Door had going for it, it would still be a darn fine read. But fortunately for us, there is more going on here than you might first think. This is not your typical supernatural story, not by any means.

Since this was a miniseries originally, it is exceptionally nice that the writers included a couple of pages of back story to help new readers. Most of the time we don’t get that luxury. The premise here is a young man named Rob Bailey has been given the power of an ancient tome entitled The Sword. Following the loss of his trusted friend and mentor, Rob teams up with a local detective to stop the demons and the undead from seizing power and killing innocents. And that leads us to the current chain of events in this five issue series.

Comic Review: 47 Ronin

47 Ronin cover by Stan Sakai47 Ronin
Written by Mike Richardson
Art by Stan Saki
Color by Lovern Kindzierski
Letters by Tom Orzechowski and Lois Buhalis
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: March 5, 2014
Cover Price: $19.99

I’m sure that many of you are already aware of this, but the comic I am writing about today is based upon true events from the eighteenth century. 47 Ronin is more than just a great story, it’s a tale of honor, loyalty, and revenge. As I was not there for the actual events, I cannot attest to the accuracy. But this story has been called a national legend and it’s my pleasure to be able to introduce this comic adaptation to you.

I’ll be honest here, I am going to avoid the use of too many Japanese words as I am likely to inadvertently misspell a few of them. There are many different versions to this story but the main theme remains clear in all of them. And thanks to writer Mike Richardson, we all get to read it! Stan Sakai‘s artwork is distinctive and feels just right for this comic, simple yet refined. Between them, they have given us a wonderful graphic novel filled with action and intrigue.

The Occultist #1The Occultist #1
Created by Mike Richardson
Written by Mike Richardson and Tim Seeley
Art by Mike Norton
Color by Allen Passalaqua
Letters by Nate Piekos of Blambot
Covers by Steve Morris, Paolo Rivera
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: October 2, 2012
Cover Price: $3.50

I’ve got a confession to make here, I chose to review this comic based solely on the title. I love horror comics and when a book is entitled The Occultist #1, I immediately think of Lovecraft, Cthulhu, and the like. So I dove in with some preconceived expectations, most of which never presented themselves. But hey, can’t blame a guy for trying…right?

Now, I don’t want you to get the wrong impression here. This wasn’t a bad book, quite the contrary. It just wasn’t what I was expecting. The main character, Rob Bailey, is in possession of an ancient artifact called The Sword. He’s described as a “mild-mannered college student,” but that just made me think of a certain super man masquerading as a newspaper reporter. I assume this was done purposefully, sort of tongue in cheek you might say. But Rob is a young man trying to unlock the secrets to this cryptic power he has been given. He’s not flying around saving the world…he’s saving it one haunted house at a time.

The Answer #4The Answer #4
Story by Dennis Hopeless & Mike Norton
Written by Dennis Hopeless
Art by Mike Norton
Colors by Mark Englert
Letters by Crank!
Publisher: Mike Richardson
Editor: Patrick Thorpe
Assistant Editor: Everett Patterson
Designer: Adam Grano
Production: Christianee Goudreau

Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: April 24, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

The Answer #4 is a perfect ending to this great mini-series. It’s got everything you’d want. Except answers. No, not THAT Answer, it’s got plenty of him.

Dennis Hopeless turns in another great script from a story by himself and Mike Norton. Up until this point, things have been a little confusing about just what’s going on with The Answer, Devin, Chip, and the rest of the cast. In this issue, everything you thought you know gets turned on it’s ear. We get explanations and more importantly, more questions. It’s a great issue with some razor sharp dialogue, some great action, even more great mysteries and some classic humor.

Release Date: March 27, 2013

While The Answer! #3 doesn’t really answer any questions (It actually brings up more questions), it’s a damn fine entertaining comic nonetheless.

Dennis Hopeless and Mike Norton have really done what they’ve set out to do: entertain me. Sure, along the way they’ll also entertain thousands of other people, but that’s just gravy. In this third chapter of the I wish it wasn’t a mini-series, all hell breaks loose as we go inside the pretty scary place where all the smart people work. But, who better to save her then The Answer? Of course, he’s got to save himself first, which may be easier said than done. This comic book is just plain FUN. Remember what that was like? When “fun” wasn’t a dirty word in the comics industry. Well, it shouldn’t be and that’s what this book is. From cover to cover, you’re going to do nothing but smile and be entertained at just how awesome The Answer is!

Hellboy in Hell #1Hellboy in Hell #1
Story & Art by Mike Mignola
Colors by Dave Stewart
Letters by Clem Robins
Cover by Mike Mignola with Dave Stewart
Designers: Mike Mignola & Gary Grazzini
Assistant Editor: Daniel Chabon
Editor: Scott Allie
Publisher: Mike Richardson
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: December 5, 2012
Cover Price: $2.99

Hellboy in Hell #1 was the first Hellboy comic that I’ve ever read. Ever. I have nothing against the character, is just seemed that it was one of those books that never interested me. That being said, what I found when I read this comic surprised me.

Mike Mignola packs a LOT of humor in this story, and frankly, I really wasn’t expecting that. Again, I’m not familiar with the Hellboy character or universe, so I didn’t know what to expect, but it sure wasn’t this. As a character, Hellboy is very tongue in cheek and quite a wise-cracking badass. Unfortunately, I found the story a little hard to follow. This is obviously aimed at Hellboy fans, so I’m sure I missed a ton of “in jokes” and references to past stories, but that’s OK. It’s an entertaining read with a couple of really good, funny parts to the story.
