As the title suggests, the newest issue of Memoir fills in the blanks that have haunted both the reader and the citizens of the fictional town of Lowesville. Whether or not the personal story of journalist Trent MacGowan comes to an end is yet to be seen.
Hoax Hunters is the story of a special team armed with scientific and magical powers that searches the world for reported “cryptids,” mystical creatures like the Yeti or the Jersey Devil. Instead of exposing them to be true, they “prove” them false in order to to preserve their existence.
So, why aren’t you reading Chew yet? I mean, honestly, is there any good reason to not read Chew? It is expertly written, spectacularly drawn, ridiculously hilarious, and chock full of cyborg lions, chocolate assault rifles, Russian vampires, murderous chickens, and, of course, chogs ( a.k.a. chicken-frog hybrids). In the middle of all of this craziness is Tony Chu, a detective whose life is turned upside down because he’s a cibopath, which means when he eats something, he learns everything about its past. His ability is incredibly important, because, in the world of Chew, chicken has been banned because of the bird flu, food crime is rampant, and the FDA is the last line of defense.
“Warfare without Warning.” That’s the tagline for The Activity, a new spy thriller from Nathan Edmondson and Mitch Gerads that has taken everyone by surprise and has quickly become one of my most anticipated reads each month. Edmondson and Gerads have researched how our military’s special operations units work and created an incredibly realistic story about the teams that protect us, without us ever knowing it.
Are you an ardent Buffy fan? If you raised your hand, great! If not, I'm glad that you decided to read this article. I just have a little, light summer homework for you to get caught up to speed. You'll need to watch the 1992 movie Buffy the Vampire Slayer (what ever happened to Kristy Swanson?), all 7 seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and 5 seasons of Angel, read the Buffy spin-off comic, Fray, and Volume 1 of Buffy the Vampire Season 8. I would also recommend buying a pop culture reference lexicon as a study guide. All done? Now, on with the show!

Doctor Who has just returned with the first episode in Series 7 titled “Asylum of the Daleks,” and my first reaction is confusion . . . and I am not yet sure if that is good or bad.
All parents have expectations for their kids. Some want their children to grow up to be a doctor or take up the family business, while in Tomorrow Jones' case, her parents want her to be a superhero. As a second generation superhero who inherited her mother's powers, it's not that Tomorrow doesn't want to go into the heroing business, it's that she wants to do so on her own terms, instead of wearing a skimpy costume mimicking her mom's. But, her desires aren't taken seriously by her parents.
