Ruby cut her toxic friends out of her life in Geek-Girl #3, but it’s hard when you have to attend school with them! She’s analyzing whether she needs to keep her alter-identity secret when everything with Lightning Storm comes to a head, but the guys who created the power glasses simultaneously are pressuring Ruby to get them back. Could the timing be any worse?
In Conan the Slayer, Conan has found himself leading a group of warrior Kozaks. So far, the story has dealt with family intrigues on par with something biblical: brother against brother, son against father, and dark demons. In Issue #7, Conan finds himself with his fellow Kozaks crossing the sea. A Conan story wouldn’t be Conan without a little violence – he is “the Slayer” after all – as they come across a ship full of pirates.
Matt Kindt is a writer’s writer. I really don’t know what that means, except that I’m a writer and to speak in a voice as unique as his own is what every writer aspires to do. To have every comic he puts into the world be a fully formed and authentic vision is a staggering achievement.
I can see a potential path beginning to form: the possibility of where this may be going. Black Hammer is a psychological superhero mystery. I imagine it would be what the superhero genre would look like if Philip K. Dick had any interest in it. A team of heroes has been stuck on a farm for 10 years. Up until now, the events surrounding this have been a mystery. Instead, we’ve been drawn into this secluded and compartmentalized world in which these characters are ghosts of their former selves simply trying to maintain. It has been ponderous, exciting, heartbreaking, disturbing; it has been a joy to read.

That's not the deal.
After Logan, it's kind of hard not to want to dive into more post-apocalyptic westerns. Luckily, there are quite a lot of them. Unfortunately, there's slightly less a number that are good, but Randall P. Fitzgerald has put something together that will engage and excite. I know that's an odd thing for a Western to do, but the blended style actually works for the novel, Husks, he's put together. I'm going to be honest: I've a mighty distaste for trilogies of late, but the part of this novel that stands on its own is well worth the time.
