Remember high school geometry? How about the mathematical formula a2 + b2 = c2, otherwise known as the Pythagorean theorem? Other than being taught that the theorem was developed by a Greek mathematician by the name of Pythagoras, it's likely that little else was revealed during the math lesson about this philosopher that lived from 570 B.C. to 495 B.C. - for example, that he founded the Pythagorean school, or that his accomplishments are marred by controversy. (Was Pythagoras the progenitor of his ideas or his colleagues?)
Like the gangster films of the noir genre, Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt’s The Damned is fast paced and a thrill to read - only in this world, demons have infiltrated the local gangs and are enjoying the benefits. Eddie, a human who has sold his soul - making it difficult to die - is approached by an old friend, Pauly Bones, who has stolen a mystery and demonic key to trade for some souls of his own. Now, the two are being hassled by demon gang lords, a mysterious killer, and demons that put other demons to shame.
One of the things in this world that not enough people talk about is mental illness. It’s the “hush-hush” conversation, unless it’s altogether avoided. The stigma that mental illness carries with it is so great, it seems that time has not yet been able to put much of a dent in the assumptions and prejudices associated with those suffering from one or more of them.
At San Diego Comic-Con 2017, Fanbase Press' Barbra Dillon talks with artist Ken Lashley (Black Panther: Doomwar, Uncanny X-Men) about his work on X-Men: Gold, his experiences at Comic-Con, and more.
As time travel stories go, Legend of Novo is fairly simple and straightforward, at least so far. That may seem like something of a paradox to some of you (No pun intended.), but the basic premise is as simple as a time travel story can be.
Are you a fan of both the original Ghostbusters such as Bill Murray and Harold Ramis and the new Ghostbusters like Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig? If you've ever dreamt of the two Ghostbusters groups teaming up, Ghostbusters 101 is truly for you. Separated by two dimensions, the characters have come together to fight ghosts on Ellis Island. This is quite similar to how DC Comics and Marvel Comics do their multiverse crossovers within their imprint. It affords creators to allow many well-beloved characters to coexist side by side when they may have not otherwise. It's always easier to just put them side by side in one universe but, often times, they could be in another universe altogether.
A couple of months ago, I reviewed Real Science Adventures #1, which involved a group of female air pirates just after World War II. Unfortunately, I missed the subsequent issues, but I assumed that Volume 1 would collect them all so I could finish the story, which was addictively entertaining.
