Where the Witches Lurk is a terrific title for this odd, yet promising, premise from indie comic writer Joe Pezzula with art by Donny Gandakusuma, colors by Chris Mann, and with Ben Gilbert handling the lettering. Given the opportunity to review the first four issues in this ongoing series, it lands quite smartly into the supernatural genre.

Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:


It is not often that we have the opportunity to own a piece of cinematic history (from the big or small screen).  Compound that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with the fact that said piece of history will make you feel like the the master of space, speeding through the stars on an adventure that you won't soon forget, and it is safe to say that you will probably want to give this opportunity a look.

The Fanboy Comics crew discuss their reactions to the 14th episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the fate of Skye, and next week's guest appearance by Lady Sif! Enjoy an audio commentary on the episode "T.A.H.I.T.I." by FBC President Bryant Dillon and FBC Contributor Tony Caballero.

MINOR SPOILERS

I believe my exact words to my editor when the opportunity came up to review HunterPrey were, “You had me at zombies.” Oh my dear puppy, do I have more words now!  I thought I was just signing on for another fun zombie graphic novel, but HunterPrey is the Odyssey of zombie lore with the humor and tenacity of Orange is the New Black and the intrigue, grit, and suspense of The Unusual Suspects. In all actuality, however, it is truly incomparable, because when you open the pages, you are sucked into a brand new world of horror and humor, a special world all unto itself.

Finn and Jake in a . . . Post-Apocalyptic World? Adventure Time covers a lot of genres, but this is one I never thought I'd see explored. As the boys head off into a grim and desolate wasteland to continue their reverse quest to convince the Monkey Wizard to kidnap Princess Painting, they team up with Marceline the vampire, because, you know, vampires are awesome.

Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:

Co-writer Daniel Freedman and fellow co-writer and artist Sina Grace are back throwing punches and making jokes in the third and final issue of their Burn the Orphanage miniseries, Born to Lose.  Working as both a continuation and conclusion to the previous issue’s Demons storyline, this issue, titled Wise Blood, offers more in the way of character development for Lex and Bear, while Rock is spirited away to try and make things right on a distant planet.  There is less brawling here, but that doesn’t mean we don’t still see some battles and bruises, though, at times, they come more in the form of volatile relationships and hurt hearts.  The story splits focus more evenly between Rock and Lex and Bear this time around, and the two friends contemplate and plumb the depths of what it means to be in love and what love even means, where the stakes can be just as high as in an actual fight, and the injuries possibly even more long lasting. This introspection is still delivered in the raucous and irreverent style as those following the exploits of Rock and his friends have come to expect, and the energy behind the musings make the dialogue more kinetic than conjectural.

Y’all read the last review of Apocalypse Al that I wrote, right?  Issue #1?  What with me whining that I can’t afford to collect another comic, and here I am all in love and shizzle?  Well, I just read the 2nd comic of the four-part series, and the story has changed.  So, get ready for a consistent review of me raving about the ridiculously entertaining series.

Spy fiction can be difficult to do successfully. Its well-worn tropes make it difficult to play seriously, but its already over-the-top nature also makes it difficult to parody—or at least, difficult to parody well. It takes a lot of talent and careful effort to craft a compelling, entertaining spy story. Velvet has been succeeding in that task with flying colors, though, and I’m pleased to note that Issue #4 is no exception.

Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:

The good folks at OSSM Comics (Xenoglyphs, Monomyth, Separators) will soon be releasing their latest project, Thaniel, which was written and created by Omar Spahi (Xenoglyphs) and illustrated by Terry Huddleston.  The publisher has been very generous to the Fanboy Comics staff and has provided us with a sneak preview of Issue #2 in advance of the April 23rd release date!
