Wow. This was just, wow. The fun and games are over and Lucifer isn’t even bothering to take names before she starts kickin’ ass.

Well, as good ‘ol JR would say, “Business is about to pick up”, because when it comes to freaky weird Russian Space Ghost Possessed Folks, we get ‘em by the bucket load in this one.
Words: Duane Swierczynski
I’ve talked in the past about how brutal X is; about how violent X is; about how jammed with action it is; about how good it is; but have I mentioned it has some pretty humorous moments as well? Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a “funny book”, nope. It’s still brutal and bloody and violent… there just happens to be some humorous moments that I really do appreciate but have probably failed to mention.
The Empty Man #5

This is one dark book. Not just story wise, although a supernatural disease is pretty dark, but from a visual aspect as well.
The Ghost Fleet #1

When I was a kid, I got Diary of a Madman by Ozzy Osbourn (vinyl, of course) for Christmas, and it was ridiculously cool. The Ghost Fleet #1 is kind of like finding Diary of a Madman under the tree.
Grendel vs The Shadow #3
Words and Pictrues:
While I’m sad to see this mini-series end (even though that’s what mini-series do) I couldn’t be happier with how it came to a close.

Today we get a lesson in Story Telling 101: How It’s Done.
Evil Empire #6

This book is frighteningly good. I mean, it’s kind of frightening realizing just how a few little nudges here and a few turns of the head there, and this book, or something very close to it, could be a reality.
Criminal Macabre: The Third Child #2

Dammit, I’m loving this book! I mean, holy ball sack, it’s just so good. Ok, enough gushing. No, wait… Yeah, I’m done. For now.
Dark Ages #2

Aliens, demons, knights, silent monks, crazy monks and whispering walls. This book just keeps pounding away at my Nerd G spot. (Is that weird to say? It is isn’t it? I’m sorry. But seriously, I dig all these things so I’ll stand by my analogy.) I love how in this issue, the mystery deepens even as we get more answers.
