The Mummy: Volume 1: Palimpsest TPB header

The Mummy: Volume 1: Palimpsest TPB
Written by Peter Milligan
Art by Ronilson Freire
Colors by Ming Sen & Dijjo Lima
Letters by Simon Bowland
Titan Comics
Release Date: June 28, 2017
Cover Price: $19.99

Cycles. Everything in existence seems to be cyclical. Take this comic for instance. The Mummy: Volume 1: Palimpsest is a rebirth of the mummy movie franchise that Hammer Films brought to the silver screen in 1959. These were, to some extent, a rebirth themselves from the old black and white films decades earlier. But what Hammer Films did was modernize the characters and connect to a whole new generation of fans.

So, in the spirit of it all, Titan Comics has partnered with Hammer to create this all new adventure. Originally a five issue mini-series, this trade paperback combines all of Ronilson Freire‘s sequential art with a whole lot more in the way of galleries, history, and commentary. With each resurrection of our iconic main character, we see some subtle (and not so subtle) differences that reflect the times in which we live. This concept is explored by Peter Milligan in the comic script in such a way as to make as obvious point of different life is today than what it once was.

I loved the original 1992 Anno Dracula novel by British writer Kim Newman. Let’s just get that out of the way, okay? So it stands to reason that I would jump at the chance to review the new comic book Anno Dracula: 1895: Seven Days In Mayhem #1, right? Well, you would correct. And for a fan like me, the comic was pretty much what I would want and expect. But for the first-time reader, not so much.

Cover Price: $14.99 (Digital)

Last year, I reviewed a new comic that was the beginning of a prequel story to the Penny Dreadful Showtime series. I also mentioned that I had yet to see any of the series, but that initial issue piqued my interest. Well, here we are several months later and I have binge-watched the entire TV series. Suffice to say, I loved it and was extremely happy to see Penny Dreadful Volume 1 TPB in my inbox last week.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. He’s one of the greatest basketball players the NBA has ever seen. He’s a 19-time NBA All-Star. He’s a six-time NBA MVP. He is, as they say, a living legend. His influence, undoubtedly, spreads far and wide. He used that influence to make an impassioned speech for Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention in Philly last week. But only one week prior, he graced the stage at another convention — San Diego Comic-Con, where he was promoting Mycroft Holmes and the Apocalypse Handbook, his new comic book miniseries from Titan Comics set in the universe of his 2015 novel Mycroft Holmes.

That’s right. Novel. Comic book. Mycroft Holmes, as in the older brother to the world’s greatest fictional detective Sherlock Holmes. Superstar Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is on it.

I’ve never seen the Showtime series of the same name, but if it’s anything like Penny Dreadful #1 then I’m going to have to track the first episodes down and subscribe to it immediately. Truth be told, I never knew it had anything to do with the gothic novels of yesteryear; that alone is enough to get me interested. Additionally, after having read this wicked little piece of sequential art, I am fully prepared to indulge myself with this franchise. Why, you ask? Keep reading and I’ll tell you.

Independence Day #1 review

Independence Day #1
Written by Victor Gischler
Art by Steve Scott
Covers by Dio Neves, Lee Garbett, John McCrea
Titan Comics
Release Date: March 23, 2016
Cover Price: $3.99

In 1996, an alien armada attempted to destroy humanity in order to gain access to the precious natural resources that it needed to survive. Fortunately for mankind, a scientist and his eccentric father stumbled upon a way to temporarily bring down the defenses of this significantly more advanced race. Falling back on Morse code as a means to communicate with other military units across the globe, a plan was hatched to destroy the aliens’ shields and go on the offensive. Through determination and sheer luck, they won the day.

This series picks up right at the end of Independence Day and will be bridging the gap between that film and the upcoming sequel Independence Day: Resurgence, due out this June! So, without further ado, I present to you Independence Day #1 from Titan Comics!
