Release Date: January 23, 2013
Cover Price: $2.99

Comics really don’t get more weird than Revival #6. And I mean that in a GOOD way. From cover to cover, the mysteries only deepen this issue, and, I’m enjoying it so much, that I don’t care that we haven’t had any of them solved yet!

Thank you Tim Seeley!!! This issue is, by far, my favorite issue yet of this series. What should frustrate me, doesn’t. I’m a big mystery buff, and by six chapters in we logically should start getting some clues to just what’s going on, but we haven’t (OK, we probably have, but just don’t know it) and that’s FINE because this book is so damned entertaining!!! Things keep happening! Shocking things! Scary things! Strange things! But, it’s SO good that you really do just end up getting lost in this comic rather than trying to figure out just what they hell happened, who did it, and how it’s all going to be revealed. This is a VERY entertaining comic book, folks. In my opinion, the best issue of Revival so far!

Revival #5Revival #5

Release Date: November 21, 2012
Cover Price: $2.99

Revival #5 continues the mystery in that small town of Wausau, Wisconsin. Usually comics with an ongoing mystery lose their momentum around the fifth or sixth issue, if they don’t offer a huge reveal. Does Revival escape that trap, or does is jump over it? Let’s take a look…

Writer Tim Seeley goes outside the box with this issue, and this series in general. What starts off as a mystery in a small town of people coming back from the dead, turns into a LOT more than just that. It’s really turned into a story of basic human survival and with some great characters that we’ve quickly come to love and care about. One of the things that impresses me most is one of the “b plots” that focuses on the officials at the CDC and the drama that’s going on in their lives. Not to be outdone at all, the main focus of the issue is the conflict between EM, a reporter named May and the evil Blaine Abel. There is a great deal of both action and story development in this issue. Seeley keeps revealing just enough of the mystery to keep us turning the pages, but not enough to reveal anything too quickly. Very well written issue.

Evil Ernie #1Evil Ernie #1
Written by Jesse Blaze Snider
Art by Jason Craig
Colors by Marcio Menyz & Adriano Augusto
Letters by Troy Peteri
Covers by Tim Seeley, Adrian Syaf, Nick Bradshaw, Dan Brereton
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: October 10, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

In 2010, Dynamite Entertainment acquired the rights to Evil Ernie from Chaos! Comics. That acquisition finally bears fruit as writer Jesse Blaze Snider, a long-time fan of Evil Ernie, takes the helm on this character reboot. Dynamite could not, however, nab the rights to Lady Death, who held a significant role in Evil Ernie’s original storyline. Her absence from Evil Ernie #1‘s story alters Evil Ernie’s origin and motivations, but the look, personality, and Smiley button of the undead psychopath remain.

Evil Ernie #1 briefly covers Ernest Fairchild’s traumatic childhood which directly leads into his demonic transformation. Ernest was born in 1993 during a bizarre car accident where his entire family was killed. His father, possessed by something, taunts his daughter and pregnant wife right before slamming the car into a light pole.

Release Date: July 11, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

It’s not many comics that literally take you to another place when you open them up to read them, but this, is definitely one of them. You quickly forget where you are in the “real world” and are transported to a small town in frosty Wisconsin, where everything is not as quiet and peaceful as it seems from a bird’s eye view.

Writer Tim Seeley really hits his “suspense” stride in the writing of this book. We know he can write horror, but this book solidifies that he can do more. WAY more. I really hate to compare comics to other media, but this book has a really great Twin Peaks vibe to it. There’s the main mystery, but every place you go, every corner you turn, and every character you meet, more and more mystery and plot twists are revealed. By the end of the book, there are several plot threads that you’re interested in. Seeley weaves all of these together flawlessly and naturally, making for a great read.

Dark Horse Comics: The Guild, Volume 2 CoverThe Guild, Volume 2
Written by Felicia Day, Jeff Lewis, Sean Becker, Kim Evey, Sandeep Parikh
Pencils by Darick Robertson, Kristian Donaldson, Ron Chan, Becky Cloonan, Tim Seeley
Inks by Ron Chan, Becky Cloonan
Colors by Dave Stewart
Covers by Georges Jeanty
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: June 27, 2012
Cover Price: $14.99

The Guild: Volume 2 collects the one-shot comic released for each member of the Knights of Good: Vork, Tink, Bladezz, Clara, and Zaboo. Each comic delves into the characters’ lives away from The Game and sheds a little more light on their personalities and motivations. These stories are not exactly earth-shattering revelations, but they’re brief, fun, focused explorations into the characters that fans love. Watching at least the first season of The Guild web series is a prerequisite to reading this collection. However, if you have not yet read the first volume of The Guild, fear not, this volume completely stands on its own.

Fans of The Guild undoubtedly have their favorite Knights of Good characters. Mine is the leader of the Knights of Good, Vork. He’s obsessively cheap and orderly. He’s also incredibly literal; my favorite scene in this chapter is the very beginning where he reveals why he plays the game the way he does. In this comic, we discover that Vork takes care of his retiree grandfather. While Vork follows rules to the letter, his loose cannon grandfather aligns somewhere around Chaotic Good—possibly Evil. In this play on opposites, Vork must reconcile his differences with his grandfather and learn to compromise with his inferiors—er, guildmates.

Image Comics: Hoax Hunters #1Hoax Hunters #1
Written by Michael Moreci & Steve Seeley

Cover by Tim Seeley

Release Date: July 4, 2012
Cover Price: $2.99

You all now me, whenever it come to horror I run screaming the other way. Basically, I’ve been described as Scooby-Doo on two legs with less hair. So, I went into Hoax Hunters #1 with cautious optimism. I REALLY liked issue #0, and thought, why not? If it gets gory, I can always stop reading it.

Writers Michael Moreci and Steve Seeley have got something REALLY unique here. The basic premise is, a bunch of people investigate strange and odd occurrences, all the while filming it for their reality show, appropriately titled “Hoax Hunters.” What I loved about this book is the character dynamics. You have the gang trying to figure out just what the hell the mystery is in a small town, and why everything’s dying, but at the same time you get what’s going on in their real lives. Look out, Moreci and Seeley! I can already picture someone swiping your premise. The reality show BEHIND the reality show is a great, fresh new concept, and it’s going to be great to see how this plays out. They give us TWO stories every issue – one of the Hoax Hunters trying to find out what’s really going on, and one where the reader is trying to find out what’s really going on with the Hoax Hunters themselves. All combined, this makes for a very entertaining, engrossing comic that you’re not going to want to put down!

In celebration of the 30th anniversary of The Masters of the Universe franchise, Mattel and Dark Horse Comics are releasing brand new mini-comics, just like the ones that were included in the original toy line. Last year at the San Diego Comic-Con when these plans were announced, He-Fans, myself included, literally stood up and cheered. So, does The Powers of Grayskull: Part One live up to the hype? Let’s take a look…

Release Date: February 29, 2012

I’ve been a Cassie Hack fan for quite some time, but Hack/Slash #13 is the first time I have had the chance to review the comic. I have long been impressed with Tim Seeley‘s writing and the way he manages to make every comic fun from start to finish. This issue was no exception, I thoroughly enjoyed the story (though I wish there was more Vlad in this one).

Kicking off a comic with velociraptors is an awesome way to begin a story. Closer interaction with them, however, changes more than one character’s opinion of them. I even enjoyed the Jurassic Park movie reference. I mean, really…who doesn’t love raptors?

Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: February 15, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

Hey, everybody loves Ash, right? And everybody loves the Evil Dead movies, right? So, you should love Army of Darkness #1, right? Right!

Elliot Serrano takes a VERY different approach to this franchise, and I applaud him for that. He could have just gone with another run of the mill Ash vs. Deadites tale, but no, he made this issue fresh, different, and exciting. There’s just one problem. I have no idea what’s going on. At. All. I’ll be honest, I haven’t kept up with the Army of Darkness miniseries that Dynamite has published lately, and maybe I should have. Don’t get me wrong, you’re not going to be completely lost, you get the gist of what’s going on, but it just feels a little like you’re missing something.
