The Ghost Fleet 7 Cover

Blown. Away. I mean, like the first time you heard Joe Satriani’s Surfing With The Alien blown away.  Like when Terry Bam Bam Gordy rushed to the aid of former partner Michael PS Hayes to reform the Fabulous Freebirds kind of blown away.  Like finding out Bigfoot is real blown away.  (OK, granted, I haven’t discovered the legitimacy of Bigfoot, but man, if you did, you’d be blown away, right?)  That is what I’m talking about when I read Ghost Fleet #7.


Burning Fields #4
Boom! Studios
Words:  Michael Moreci & Tim Daniel
Pictures:  Colin Lorimer




Do you ever have those feelings, those little tremors of premonition that say, “This is going to be good”?  Like the first time you heard that power chord hit on Ronnie James Dio’s Rainbow In The Dark.  You knew Dio was going to slay it vocally, but then that power chord hits, those keys kick in, and it’s on.  You know this is going to rock out loud.  That’s the feeling I got when I read the first page of Burning Fields #4.


Hexed #9
Boom! Studios
Words:  Michael Alan Nelson

My review of Hexed #9 wherein I realize it’s totally ok for me to like Ace Frehley singing lead on Shock Me instead of Gene or Paul.  (Stick with me as I’m pretty sure this analogy makes sense.  It’s better than my original one which I may or may not share after this review.)


Archie vs. Predator #1
Dark Horse
Words: Alex de Campi
Pictures: Fernando Ruiz


I dig peanut butter. I mean a lot. I was practically raised on the stuff. I also really dig pickles. Love dill pickles. I can eat tons of them. I never thought of putting those two things together, but apparently, some folks do. (Including my Mother, which I find super weird for all kinds of reasons.) So imagine my surprise at how satisfying I found Archie vs. Predator #1. Bravo fellas. Bravo.

Capt Mid 21 Cover

I’m a sucker for team books.  I’m a sucker for cool looking costumes.  I’m an even bigger sucker for cool looking bad guys.  I know, Captain Midnight isn’t really a team book, but he ends up with a fairly cool team by the time this issue is all said and done, so yeah, I’m a sucker for Captain Midnight #21.
