Butterfly #3 of 4
Story:  Arash Amel
Words:  Marguerite Bennett
Pictures:  Stefano Simeone


Spies are inherently dual natured.  I know I’m simplifying things, but in essence, there’s the spy portion of their lives, and everything else.  It’s the very dual nature of spies that Arash, Marguerite and Stefano bring to life in Butterfly, and they do it so well.

 Colder Bad Seed 2 Cover

I’ve never met Paul or Juan, but every time I read Colder, it’s as if they’ve gotten together and said, “What can we do this issue that’s gonna creep this dude out?”  Because, Hey!  Look!  They did it again!  If this book wasn’t so consistently awesome, I’d be worried about those two. 


Hellraiser Bestiary #4
Boom! Studios
Words:  Lela Gwenn, Christian Francis, Ben Meares & Mark Miller

Anthologies are awesome.  Kind of like a sampler case of beer.  You get a taste of a couple of different flavors while not having to commit full on to any single one.  Well, if you’ve got a taste for horror, then consider this your twelve pack sampler.  (Ok, so it’s actually a three pack, but you get the drift.)


Criminal Macabre: The Third Child #3
Dark Horse

 Criminal Macabre Third Child 3 Cover

I have to give it up to Steve Niles, this dude has me hooked.  I’m so digging this Third Child story arc like I’m digging on sour beers right now.  Yeah, they’re shocking, and bold and in your face and some people might turn their noses up to them…  But when you settle in and enjoy them for the bold, in your face flavorful journeys they are, you find that they rock out loud.  So does this book.
