Man from SpaceSpace...the final frontier. The galaxy far, far away. The Black. The place where the Alien came from. Space is an old friend of both the comic book and science-fiction genres. Still, cartoonist Marc Jackson manages to bring something completely new and original to the starry beyond: a snarky, foul-mouthed, intergalactic-traveling goldfish! If this is enough to bring a smile your face, comic book sniffers, then jump on board for the absurd and hilarious rocket trip that is the comic book Man from Space!

 

The 36 3The story behind the comic book The 36 is based on the Kabbalistic belief that there are 36 people in the world upon whom it is saved by their simple existence. As the book states, “In times of need, these people emerge from anonymity to save us.”


Creator Kristopher White continues to weave a bold and original tale with third issue of The 36. Easily my favorite issue so far, this chapter reveals more about the other members of The 36, the staff Noam carries, and the details surrounding Noam’s comatose wife.

 

Buffy S9I6The last issue of Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 9 left us with quite the cliffhanger, and this issue does not disappoint. While readers desperate for details of how Buffy ended up in her current predicament will be left wanting, writer Andrew Chambliss continues his stellar performance as the current Buffy scribe, while artist Georges Jeanty flaunts the amazing talent that got him the job! Talk about a dream team!

With the first issue of The 36, creator Kristopher White set the tone for an epic adventure steeped in an ancient mythology. In Issue #2, White and artist George Zapata are not content to tread water, expanding the story and the relationships of the increasingly charismatic cast of characters!

 

Angel  Faith 6The second arc of Dark Horse’s Angel & Faith series starts this week with Issue #6, written by Christos Gage and with art by Rebekah Isaacs, and your friendly, neighborhood Comic Book Slayer has staked out a full review for his Scooby gang! I’m proud to report that both Gage and Isaacs are at full force in this issue, as the Angel & Faith series continues to jockey with Buffy: Season 9 for the title of best Whedon comic of 2012!

Kristopher White, creator and writer of The 36, has crafted a story that captures the epic quality of popular shows like LOST and Heroes, while still delivering an original and fresh concept. That’s right, comic book sniffers! The best new show you’re not watching is a comic book, and it’s called The 36!

 

Buffy S9I5Buffy: Season 9 #5 is a big one, kiddies! Writer Andrew Chambliss continues to deliver this month, along with the return of Karl Moline’s (Fray) pencils! We have familiar faces reappearing, the departure of major character, and a stunning ending to the issue that will most likely change everything for our favorite blonde slayer!

Angel  Faith 5Angel’s former assistant and world-famous blonde vampire Harmony Kendall makes a stop in London this week in Angel & Faith #5, written by Christos Gage and with art by Phil Noto. While this is a lighter story for Dark Horse’s brood-happy series, the change in tone and cartoony feel of Noto’s art make this issue a nice, bright spot in the eternal darkness that is Angel & Faith.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Nine #4 wraps up the first arc of Buffy’s latest season, and, while it has many satisfying and thrilling moments, there is a lack of a climax to the issue. But, don’t despair, Scoobies! Writer Andrew Chambliss leaves plenty of threads to pick up in the next arc!

SPOILERS BELOW

The first arc of Dark Horse’s Angel & Faith series comes to a close this week with Issue #4 written by Christos Gage and with art by Rebekah Issacs. Issacs’ art continues to grow better with every book, this one included, and while Gage delivers a script nearly as excellent as the previous ones, this one ends up being a little shaky on the dismount.
