I think the highest compliment I can give Lauren Wilson, author of The Art of Eating Through the Zombie Apocalypse: A Cookbook and Culinary Survival Guide (from Smart Pop Books), is that she would kick ass in the end times. I tip my hat to your preparedness, Lauren, and self-servingly offer you this positive review in the hopes of allying ourselves when TSHTF (“The S--t Hits The Fan”, just one of her many handy, abbreviated terms to help you navigate TEOTWAWKI, “The End Of The World As We Know It”).
Before my editor handed me this book to review, I had never heard of Harvey Kurtzman. I didn’t know that he was the man who created MAD Magazine, who had built the first graphic novel, and had subverted so much of this country’s youth for many, many years.
Corporatica presents us with a world in a fever dream. Seen through the perceptions of a man who might be crazy, who might be the only sane person left, we are treated to a cacophony of sight and text that beguiles with its confusion, drawing us in, because we simply aren’t given much to go on, but what is there . . .
Well, it's been a little over a month, and I have been waiting in anticipation to see what happens to some of our favorite comic book heroes: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Ghostbusters!
Holy rhinoceros! I literally just finished reading Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Issue #40, and let me just say that it contains one of the best battles I've seen in a comic book since I've been writing these reviews!
The Storyteller series was one of my favorite Jim Henson creations, doing what he did best: telling amazing stories in interesting ways. Blending live action with creatures from the shop, the Storyteller featured John Hurt’s incredible presence weaving tales of the old world, with very little in the way of censoring the unfortunate or scary events, but leaving the tales complete with the bits usually removed for children.
So, Jesus had a pretty rough go of it. Begat by Mary and the Holy Spirit, he suffered and died for the people who killed him, allowing people into the kingdom of Heaven. And, what do we reward this sacrifice with? The world is . . . pretty awful in certain places, and sometimes in the very churches built in his name. So, what if Jesus . . . got fed up? That’s the idea behind Creator’s Edge’s release, Prince of Pieces. Jesus comes back with a vengeance.
If you can survive the opening scene of The Last Son of Ahriman, you’ll be doing good. I don’t mean that in a it-takes-a-while-to-get-into-the-story kind of way. I mean it in a do-your-best-not-to-get-eaten-by-a-horrible-monster-or-sucked-into-a-terrifying-portal-to-a-hell-dimension kind of way.
I love David Petersen’s Mouse Guard series, and some of my favorite stories are the ones that have been released as part of the Archaia Free Comic Book Day anthologies, which have always disappeared quickly from the shelves.
