Holy hell! After mentioning to some people how much I love Cullen Bunn as a writer, they told me I should check out The Sixth Gun. It just happened to be perfect timing with the release of this trade paperback, so here I am, writing a review of this absolutely fun comic book.
“The Eaters of Light” saw the return of classic Who writer Rona Munro who wrote “Survival”—the final story in the original run of Doctor Who.

The latest installment of Kim Newman and Paul McCaffrey’s Anno Dracula 1895: Seven Days in Mayhem brings a lot of action and excitement to the Tower of London. McCaffrey’s cover is a stunning juxtaposition of refined beauty and a creepy x-ray—which is very fitting for the atmosphere of this series. The variant covers are great, too. Martin Stiff’s is simple but eerie, as a skull appears to emerge out of the Tower. Tom Mandrake’s cover nicely captures the action of this issue and creates a heroic scene with the heroines ready to battle a horde of crazed vampires.
Martin Scorcese says film is dead. It’s a strong statement meant to provoke discussion, and it’s difficult to argue against someone like Scorcese, a historian of cinema itself. He sees the breadth of everything that has been, is now, and what lies ahead. I want to say to Scorcese that comic books are keeping film alive. Creators like Matt Kindt are keeping the art of visual storytelling not only alive but moving forward. At first Kindt’s artistic style may seem scrappy or unfinished. That’s how I first felt when I picked up Issue #1 of Mind MGMT, but the word of mouth was so good for the series that it was hard for me to pass up. Now, I see him for who he really is. With every panel, Kindt tells a story, and he creates a mood and tone. In Issue #15 of Dept.H, he shows us what it would be like to have a photographic memory, melding time and space to pull us into our hero’s world. In fact, this issue takes us even more into Mia’s world than any issue has.
Black Hammer has veered into Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining territory. If you’ve ever wondered what it would feel like watching superheroes suffer from extreme bouts of cabin fever, start reading from the top, because the psychological warfare is beginning to amp up.
The five issue series The Witcher: Curse of Crows has been collected into a trade paperback, marking the third volume of Geralt of Rivia stories from Dark Horse and continuing the publisher’s collaboration with CD Projekt RED with stories that tie-in with the hugely popular video games. For fans who have not been sated by The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the comic book series further explores Geralt’s fantastical world: a world originally created by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski through a series of novels in the mid-1990s that became available to Western readers with English translations beginning with The Last Wish in 2007.
