Back again is one of the best and most insane books in Image Comics' current roster, Curse Words. In this world, magic exists, and the magic in this world is mostly done by one guy - Wizord - who is, you guessed it, a wizard of sorts. In previous issues, he's used his totally legit magical powers to do some pretty great things; Wizord turned people platinum, shrank a baseball stadium, and basically impressed the whole world with his wizarding abilities. But during that time, there's been a whole other thing going on with Wizord's home world. There's been some major upheaval in the Hole World, mostly as its leader attempts to destroy Wizord for betraying him in this whole “Destroy the world” bit he has.

Bobbie’s expression was grave. “The Faceless Ones are a new race, or to be precise, a very old race that has been in hiding for a long time.” Bobbie looked uncomfortable even talking about them. “They have begun building their strange machines and terrible devices across the world.  No one knows to which gods, if any, they pray, but the ywield knowledge as to make the University look like a tribe of cavemen.”

Lyndon White’s Kickstarter foldout book, Dracula Concertina, is a stunning, beautifully Gothic collection of illustrations based on Bram Stoker’s classic novel. With just a brief narrative on the back cover, the story emerges across the nine remarkable illustrations. White has created a new and exciting version of Dracula while still maintaining the darkness and horror of the vampire’s evil plight.

The smell of aging books wafted through the main hall at the Glendale Civic Auditorium on Sunday, March 19.  Celebrating its thirty-eighth year, the one-day show boasts an affordable $5 admission and free parking, and, in return, attendees can browse the tables of over fifty vendors. While there were tons of vintage paperbacks of various genres – westerns, mysteries, science fiction, and horror – there were also hardback books of recent and classic fiction, original artwork, and back issues of Weird Tales, Amazing Stories, Illustration, and many other magazines. Books filled makeshift shelving units, stacked on tables, or in long boxes under the tables. It was all a matter of rooting around until you found a treasure that you could not be without.

March brings with it another excellent issue of Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 11 from the creative team of writer Christos Gage and artist Georges Jeanty. As Buffy and her friends remain at the mercy of the authoritarian policies being enacted by the United States government, our Slayer make a calculated move that aligns her with her captors and increases the enemies around her ten-fold, all with the hope that it will lead to an eventual path to escape.

Thinking later, shooty shooty now.
