Today marks the release of issue four of the sci-fi space adventure comic book series, Errand Boys (Image Comics). The five-issue series follows half-brothers Jace and Tawnk who are thrust together when Tawnk is orphaned and has no other family. Elder brother Jace has gained street smarts and makes a modest living as an errand boy. Since Jace’s home also serves as his spaceship (called a bego), Tawnk gets a crash course on life when Jace accepts an easy snatch-and-grab job.

There are a lot of balls being juggled in the newest story arc of Umbrella Academy, but, at times, it feels like each story is being juggled by a different juggler and each of those jugglers are on a different planet. I have no idea how they’ll get everything to connect, but if they do – wow! To some degree, it feels like four issues of setup, and this is only a seven-issue storyline. Maybe I should be thinking of it like a chess game and the creators are shuffling pieces around the board for something yet to come. It’s hard to say when, as I have absolutely no idea where this could be going.

In Cullen Bunn’s Bone Parish, there’s a new drug on the street. Called “ash,” it’s a cocaine-like powder created from the remains of the deceased. While you’re high on the ash of the person in question, it brings them back for you, but it can do so much more, including allowing you to live out the dead’s memories. The drug is so popular that it’s drawing the attention of some not-so-great people who want in on the action. This attention will test the family at the center of the burgeoning enterprise, who in many ways don’t quite understand the drug either.
