Eve Stranger’s trade paperback is beyond the simple binding of the various issues into a single form. It’s a celebration of the series, and I am excited to join in.

The Goddamned: The Virgin Brides is a VERY adult comic book.

Don’t get confused; this is not Marvel Comics' Miss America, though we do see versions of Marvel characters in this Image comic, which felt odd. This is America Vazquez, a character developed by Joe Casey and Nick Dragotta; she was their updated version of the character from Marvel Comics that first appeared back in the 1940s. To read more about the semi-confusing history of both Americas and how they relate, check out this article from The Hollywood Reporter.

Rook and Olwyn make several costly detours on their journey to Isola, the faraway land of the dead. The people they meet, and the sorcery they encounter, threaten their mission and reveal long-hidden secrets that could permanently tear the companions apart. The creative team of Brenden Fletcher and Karl Kerschl vivify their already breathtaking and immersive high-fantasy adventure in Isola Vol. 2.

The nitty-gritty: Post-Hellmouth, Buffy is readjusting to her new reality. One where she’s no longer the only Chosen One, and where she has lost her best friends, Willow and Xander. One where she and Robin Wood are spending a lot more time together, and so are Rose and Kendra. Things could get kinda messy.  

Who tells the story of the storyteller? They themselves would weave a most fantastical tale from whence they came, foregoing truth for tantalization and admission for admiration. It's the periphery that speaks plain. An unnoticed blur among the throng. A whisper of a thought. Just another shadow cast on a wall in a castle made for a Goblin King.

Disclaimer: Sex Criminals is a comic book intended for adults. (Who knew?)

Crowded Volume 2: Glitter Dystopia is the perfect reason to explain why comic books are such an amazing storytelling medium. The creative team behind Crowded has elevated what was already an outstanding start in Volume 1 by enhancing the relationship between main characters Charlie and Vita. Although the first volume starts with a Reapr campaign designated to pay loads of money to the person who kills Charlie, Crowded: Volume 2 tells its story for readers who are completely new to it.

Welcome back to my favorite comic on the shelf, Mercy! As a fan of Jane Austen novels, steampunk things, and Gothic horrors, this really hits the target for me. Let me bring you back to the small town of Woodsburgh, a town draped in mystery and darkness, and the current residence of the beautiful, yet creepy, Lady Hellaine. So, let's pick up where we left off.

If you are a fan of the ever-desired crime and murder shows that populate the networks, then I hope you have taken a dive into crime noir comics. Whenever I recommend this genre to people, they are often surprised that comics like this exist. They do, and they are AWESOME which segues nicely into my review of Image Comics' newest ongoing crime story, That Texas Blood.
