The hit mini-series, Going to the Chapel, from Spencer & Locke creator David Pepose comes together in a wonderful package of humor and brevity. We’re introduced to Elizabeth, full of nerves and cold feet on her wedding day. Just as she is about to walk down (or run away) from the aisle, the wedding is crashed by the infamous bank robbers, the Bad Elvis gang. But, as the saying goes, “The best laid schemes of mice and men often go awry,” and it’s up to Elizabeth to save her family, her wedding, the heist, and the robbers whom she has a sordid history with.
As the first issue in the new arc after the Hellmouth Event, Angel & Spike #9 delivers on several fronts. Establishing a new team dynamic. Check. Introduce a new mysterious threat. Check. Trot out a familiar face. Definitely.
As the new sheriff in town, Mal’s got a murder mystery to solve. Despite assistance from Boss Moon, it would appear that their mystery killer is one step ahead of them, with no qualms about committing mass murder. Meanwhile, the rest of the Serenity crew is still dealing with the fallout of the Second Unification War.
Worlds collide when a barbarian warrior is ripped from his fantasy realm and dropped into a modern-day metropolis. Writer Jeff Lemire and artist Mike Deodato Jr’s newly collected Berserker Unbound begins with standard sword-and-sorcery fair, but ultimately reveals itself as an affecting examination on grief and recovery.
Over half a decade ago, several voice actors with limited connections to one another began playing a game of Dungeons & Dragons as a birthday present to one of the cast members. Years later, the game went from a way to relax and have fun to a live-streamed show to one of the most popular programs on the internet. With the podcast and stream in full swing and an animated series on the way, fans have been clamoring for the characters' stories that predated their game. Thanks to Dark Horse Comics, we've gotten just that with the second Vox Machina Origins series that explores the home of our talented cast. With this issue, we get to meet another familiar face from the Vox Machina we've come to know, love, and laugh at when they do stupid things. So, so many stupid things.
Hoo-wee! I cackled openly and often while reading the first issue of Matt Kindt and Wilfredo Torres’s new series, Bang! Think James Bond with a Philip K. Dick flare, both in quite the literal sense.
I love a good Hellboy tale more than almost anything else. Like Zatoichi: The Blind Swordsman or Lone Wolf and Cub, his stories are a comforting place to return to.
