The third issue of Reyn from Kel Symons and Nate Stockman is your typical road trip scenario, if instead of roadyou said insanely high, vertical rock cliff followed by dark, foreboding chasmand instead of tripyou said multiple desperate sword fights with a variety of fantastical and dangerous beasts.  This book doesnt lack for excitement, playing up the fantasy elements in this installment.  And, the main character Reyn stays true to form as a begrudging hero, not unlike The Man with No Name in Sergio Leones Dollars trilogy.  Han Solo fans may also connect with the roguish nature of the lead.

Reyn #2 is upon us, releasing this Wednesday, February 18, from Image Comics, and the ass kicking continues.  For those unfamiliar with the series, Reyn, written by Kel Symons and drawn by Nate Stockman, follows the title character, a warrior, tasked with protecting the land of Fate from the relentless forces of darkness.  It’s a clever fantasy story with a spaghetti western sensibility, and, true to form, this issue starts off with a massive, 9-page bar brawl. 

Reyn, a brand new sword-and-sorcery series by Kel Symons (w) Nate Stockman (a), and with colors by Paul Little, starts off with a full-page panel of a lone horseman in the distance, marching through a scorched, wind-swept landscape, accompanied by some concise narration.  The speaker tells us about an order of great warriors, servants of light and protectors of the land, Fate.  The Wardens, as they are known, have faded into the stuff of legend since an event called The Great Cataclysm, which ushered Fate into a millennium of darkness.  But now, in the form of this solitary warrior, Reyn, the forces of light are back.

The following is an interview with filmmakers Tanner Beard and Russell Cummings, the directors behind the new, award-winning spaghetti western feature film, 6 Bullets to Hell.  The film tells the tale of a farmer who must return to his old gun to avenge the murder of his wife at the hands of a ruthless bandit and his gang of killers.  6 Bullets to Hell was shot in Tabernas, Almeria Spain, on the legendary original Oasys set, where the iconic Clint Eastwood and Sergio Leone films For a Few Dollars More, The Good, the Bad, and The Ugly, Hannie Caulder, and Doc were all filmed.  In this interview, Fanboy Comics Creative Director Sam Rhodes talks with Beard and Cummings about their creative approach to their film, the upcoming premiere at HollyShorts in Los Angeles, and where readers can learn more information about the film.

Red City #4 written by Daniel Corey and with art by Anthony Diecidue is coming out tomorrow and wraps up the first arc of this exciting, new comic with a big, bright bow on top.  It’s the last act of the story, and there’s a lot of ground to cover, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t time for a firefight and some fisticuffs.  This issue feels a little rushed compared to the three previous, but it gives us a satisfying conclusion and will leave you hankering for the next arc.

I found a recipe for Hot Buttered Rum a while back. Basically, you simmer apple cider with cinnamon sticks, cloves, and fresh grated nutmeg for about 20 minutes, then you melt in some butter for richness, a splash of fresh lemon juice for a hint of tartness, and a healthy measure of rum for a kick.  It  warmed my insides, like being under a comfy blanket in front of a fire, with a significant other knowing there’s going to be some hanky panky later.  Well, David Quantic and Tamra Bonvillain’s new comic, Bakersfield, Earth, is like that but in a comic.  They’ve crafted a story with such warmth, heart, and raw sensuality that after you read it you’ll just want to go and find someone and give them the biggest, warmest hug you can, before you both retreat to a quiet corner to see where the night takes you.
