NOOOOOOOOO!!!! That was my first reaction upon hearing the news that one of my longest-running addictions was coming to an end. And during its twentieth anniversary year, no less. What horrible thing did I do to earn such a cruel punishment?! How can Witchblade #185 be the end?

Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files: Down Town

Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files: Down Town
Written by Jim Butcher & Mark Powers
Pencils by Carlos Gomez
Colors by Mohan
Letters by Bill Tortolini
Cover by Stjepan Sejic
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: October 15, 2015
Cover Price: $24.99

I’m a huge fan of The Dresden Files. If you know me at all, you know this already. So it comes as no surprise to anyone involved that I never hesitate to review anything even remotely related to the series. Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files: Down Town is a brand new story and takes place between the novels White Knight and Small Favor.

Harry Dresden is not just a private detective, he’s also Chicago’s only professional wizard. So when the local police call him in, it’s going to be something supernatural, you can bet money on it. Sergeant Karrin Murphy is usually the one asking him to consult on cases, since she’s the one that historically gets the weirder assignments. This particular case is no different, murder and mayhem abound and it’s painfully obvious from the get go.

Comic Review: Sunstone, Vol. 3

Sunstone, Vol. 3

Sunstone, Vol. 3
Writing, Art, and Cover by Stjepan Šejić
Top Cow Productions, Inc.
Release Date: August 26, 2015
Cover Price: $14.99

If you haven’t heard of Stjepan Šejić yet then I am ecstatic to be able to introduce you to his work today. If you have, then you know that Sunstone Volume 3 will be just as amazing as everything else he has done prior. I must however, before I go any further, mention that this particular item is very adult oriented. I mean that in the strictest sense of the term, it deals with adult situations, what some consider to be alternative lifestyles and in its most basic constructs it also contains a significant amount of nudity. Pervy, fun, kinky nudity to be precise.

This being the third volume of the Sunstone graphic novels, it should be obvious to even the uninitiated that the storyline has progressed and evolved after almost three hundred pages between the last two volumes. But the first thing you’ll notice while reading this series is that it is first and foremost a story about two people falling in love. Regardless of everything else, these characters embody love in its earliest days; not to say there isn’t an amazing amount of latex clothing coupled with collars and gags. However, BDSM toys aside, the fact that we are dealing with two women in a sexual relationship would be enough to keep most publishers at bay. Therefore, before I forget, I must applaud Top Cow for their open-mindedness and tolerant attitude, as it’s refreshing to see that in a publisher.

The future is inevitable.

Cyber Force, Vol. 2 picks up right where the first volume left off, as the heroes try to escape CDI (CyberData Industries) after a violent confrontation with CDI’s chairman. Just as one threat is extinguished, a new CDI created menace with a personal vendetta against Ripclaw emerges. As the team tries to elude their new, deadly foe — while doing their best to keep one of their own alive — the new chairwoman of CDI begins her nefarious plans for the creation of a new earth.

The Dresden Files: War Cry #3
Written by Jim Butcher and Mark Powers

Cover by Stjepan Sejic
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: August 6, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

How do you take what is arguably the best urban fantasy book series ever written and make it better? Well, you create a comic series to help tell some of the other stories that didn’t make it into the books, that’s how! The Dresden Files: War Cry #3 marks the center of this story which takes place directly after the novel Dead Beat. And as usual, Harry Dresden is in a pickle, only this time he’s not completely to blame.

in the first two issues we see Harry and his three proteges en route to defend a group of scholars in the Midwest. Arriving on the scene a little late, they are almost immediately set upon by Red Court vampires. Hundreds of them, as a matter of fact. Harry being Harry, he notices that the scholars, the White Council’s Venatori Umbrorum allies, are adamant in their refusal to retreat. Upon searching the building, they discover why: there is a Shoggoth in the cellar. The supernatural equivalent of nuclear armament, this creature exists to feed and destroy and is outlawed on pain of death. And that’s where this issue picks up, with Harry changing his game plan just a tad.

Death Vigil #1 review header

Death Vigil #1
Written and Illustrated by Stjepan Sejic
Cover by Stjepan Sejic
Top Cow Productions, Inc.
Release Date: July 9, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

In a line of new ongoing series from Top Cow, Death Vigil stands out for one important reason: Stjepan Sejic. In this present-day fantasy/horror comic, Sejic is not only able to show off his impressive artistic abilities — as he has with many Top Cow titles before — but his skillful storytelling is on display as well.

Death Vigil #1 is a 40-page explosion of supernatural mayhem. With an overflow of the occult, demons, and tears in the fabric of the universe, only certain beings have the power to protect humanity from falling prey to these unleashed evils: The Vigil; those who have died but are given another chance and led in their fight by Death herself.

In the first issue of Rise of the Magi a young Asa Stone was sent from the world of Rune to Earth with a small vial of magic. The magic was scratched off the surface of the Orb, an object made of all the concentrated magic that exists in the universe.
