The demon Kanisus has returned and has slain the Mortifera and recaptured the demons' blood so he can raise a new army. The only ones who stand in his way are the two surviving Mortifera, Catherine and Ethan Gregor, and the demon they summoned to assist them in their fight, Durin.
I previously reviewed Issue #1, which can be found here.

I grew up with Star Wars comics, they being one of the very few titles I have read since I first got into comic book reading, and the titles (for me at least) have done a great job of bridging the gaps between the feature films and the novels. For me, Star Wars has always been a central core of my geekdom, a pillar upon which I have judged other aspects of science fiction—as well as other aspects of Star Wars itself—and I have immensely enjoyed the stories that Dark Horse has provided . . . well, most of them. There will always be some that I am not a fan of, but that’s the way things go. But now, with Disney’s acquisition of LucasFilm, the license to produce Star Wars comic material has been lost to Marvel (another division of Disney), and once the current contracts of ongoing (and soon-to-be-made) comics finish, Dark Horse will lose one of the most important resources it has relied upon since 1991: the overwhelming obsession of Star Wars fans.
The following is an interview with the comic book writer/artist team of Jody Houser (Womanthology: Space) and Cliff Green, who will be contributing their short story, "A Zombie Walks into a Bar," to the upcoming horror-themed anthology Skin Crawling Comics. In this interview, Fanboy Comics Managing Editor Barbra Dillon chats with Houser and Green about the inspiration behind their horror short, what the horror genre means to them, and where readers can find other examples of their work in advance of the anthology's release.
This interview was conducted on January 29, 2013.
My 2013 Sundance trip has already come and gone. In six days, I saw 13 movies, and my company hosted 3 events. I made it to 1 party, got lost on 1 bus, and almost missed 1 screening. I officially missed out on 1 movie that I had a ticket to and didn’t get to see, but it wasn’t on my original list to begin with, so I think I did pretty well!
Writers Clay and Susan Griffith bring us Arcana Comics' modern-day sequel to Ray Harryhausen’s B-movie classic It Came From Beneath the Sea. It’s chock full of mutant monster action and tongue-in-cheek humor. Let’s dive in!
The New Marvel is a series that looks at the changes that the mega-comic empire made following the events of Avengers vs. X-Men and the impact that those changes have on the stories of Marvel NOW! Six issues (or more) into each Marvel NOW! title, we see what our favorite characters are up to and what to keep an eye out for in the future.
He’s the best at what he does: mutant warrior, world-class hunter, and the Earth’s greatest . . .teacher? Following the splinter from Cyclops’ Utopian faction, Wolverine set up another school, believing in the tenants that Charles Xavier bestowed upon him and his fellow X-Men. But, in the wake of the world-changing war between the Avengers and his fellow mutants, this man finds himself trying to come to terms with the possible death of one of his students, becoming a leader amongst the X-Men, and trying to keep fanatics from destroying his school. He’s Wolverine, and these are his X-Men.
I think we know where Disney is spending all of that Avengers money. Even after recently acquiring LucasFilm for $4 billion (Imagine the number of red, plaid shirts George can buy with that!), the $4 million per 30 seconds ad rate for Sunday’s game isn’t slowing Disney down at all. We knew they’d be showing commercials for Oz and The Lone Ranger. Now, we know that Tony Stark is on deck, as well.

More often than not, Kickstarter campaigns for independent comic books take time to build steam before reaching their crowdfunding goal. While some campaigns seem to capture magic in a bottle, reaching their fundraising goal (and beyond!) in a matter of mere days, this occurrence remains a rarity. For this reason, the Fanboy Comics staff was intrigued and impressed by the upcoming comic book series Flesh of White, published by indie publisher Inverse Press. With just over a week remaining in their Kickstarter campaign, the creators behind Flesh of White have already surpassed their goal, but they need your help to reach their exciting, new stretch goals!
That was kind of a buzzkill.
After roaring out of the gate with three stellar outings of the new Justified season, showrunner Graham Yost and company take their collective foot off the gas this week. It’s not uncommon for this to happen, as past seasons have featured more stand-alone episodes until the more serialized stuff comes in the back half of the season.
