Shadow Roads, the extension of Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt’s The Sixth Gun world, is a mixture of old Western tropes mixed with ghosts, demons, and other supernatural elements. It began with a rip-roaring time and some mystery built into its first issue, as one group of people - consisting of a Native American raised in England, his somewhat buffoonish friend, and ex-singer Miss Abigail Redmayne - fought off hell hounds on a train. Meanwhile, a gunslinger who sees ghosts was seeking out a well-known gunslinger to go after someone called the Hunter. A lot of questions arose: Why were these collections of characters brought together? Why are some looking for each other? Why are the evil hell hounds coming after them? We were left with the promise of the impending destruction of the universe as we know it, if it something wasn’t done.

One of the great things about Rat Queens is its world building. I don’ know if you’ve noticed, but world building can be some of the most excruciatingly bland things to read, with too many adjective and metaphors trying to compare certain aspects of the world to ours.
After reading VS, I can make a really strong case that it is an allegory for the pitfalls of social media; however, you might read VS and pull a completely different meaning from it. This is what takes the first volume arc of VS from fun-for-some to fun-for-everyone.
Junior Braves of the Apocalypse is every doomsday prepper's fantasy come to glorious, undead life. Volume 1 collects the first six zombie-filled issues of the series. The book is fast paced. The action comes out of the box with the suspense nob turned all the way up. It is around 220 pages of horrifying fun that ends with a swift kick to your cold, black heart.
The second issue of Rob Guillory's Farmhand deepens the mystery that the first issue laid, while establishing new characters, new relationships, and new hints of plot that help to continue to establish a remarkably fast-moving and well-developed plot and world.
Outpost Zero #2 immediately picks up where the events of the double-sized introductory issue left off. In our first issue, we get a fantastic sense of the environment our characters get to play in. There is a wonderful magnitude to the dystopia of this particular future tale, and the characters are written in a carefully balanced way. Now that the stage has been set for our story, issue #2 begins to unravel the mysterious death of a main character while illustrating what Outpost Zero will ultimately be about.
Hey, Wonder Peeps! When Wonder Woman “Rebirth” rolled around, I was more than excited that Liam Sharp had been announced as the artist. I was a fan of Sharp’s since way back when he did work on The Hulk, Death’s Head, and his “adaption” of Frazetta’s Death Dealer with Glen Danzig. After that, I thought that he left comics for greener pastures as many artists are wont to do. He was actually busy starting his own digital comics platform, Madefire.
In the indie comic series known as Scruffy Puppies (written and illustrated by creator Brent J. Trembath), a team of mutant, anthropomorphic canines have became a well-trained, heroic team of combatants who patrol the post-apocalyptic wasteland they call home. Feeling like a cross between Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Expendables, Scruffy Puppies feels like one of those special (and weirdly fun) finds discovered while wandering Artist Alley.
