I first started reading Edgar Rice Burroughs' books when I was about twelve. First, I went through the John Carter of Mars series. (Full disclosure – I liked the movie.) Then, there was the Venus series, and then I made it through the first couple of Tarzan books before I got distracted by something. I was twelve. It happens. All I knew was that I wanted a Thark as my next best friend. So, when I found out that Amy Chu had written a prequel about Dejah Thoris before J.C. showed up, I had to go and buy it.

Kengo Hanazawa's brilliant I Am a Hero began as a simple, yet cleverly designed, zombie story. Here, zombies are called ZQNs, and that strong point of view coupled with incredibly beautiful artwork could have been enough, but he has turned this epic tale of survival into a sprawling parable of individuality versus singularity.

I haven’t fist pumped since the '90s. I fist pumped yesterday when I read Black Badge #11 which is the penultimate issue of this story arc (and maybe the series as a whole).

With issue 14, the overarching story of Gideon Falls finally starts to take shape. We now have a better understanding of who the forces of good and evil are in this world, with the terrifying laughing man (Norton Sinclair) on one side, and now Bishop Jeremiah Burke on the other. The importance of characters come more into focus, taking on deeper, richer archetypes as the past catches up to the present. None of this disappoints. Lemire is using the very foundations of reality as his sandbox: the past and present, multiverses, good and evil, and our perceptions of hell with (thus far) no heaven in sight.

Here’s me continuing not to complain that we get more Hellboy stories from Mike Mignola. I sincerely love this world so very much. The esoteric magic is beautiful, and all of the elements I love about the big red guy are on display in this one-shot. There’s a brutal fight that Hellboy “harrumphs” his way through. There’s also a strange magical force that finds its way into the story and shows itself through a very unexpected and playful visual device. The great thing is that the visual device fits in perfectly with the purveyor of that magic.

What a strangely beautiful and poetic world Poelgeest, Bertram, and Hollingsworth have created. All of the characters have one foot in the afterlife and one fighting for freedom and justice in this alternate universe to our own. Though, like with all incredible sci-fi, one can see the exaggerated and hyper-realistic elements of our own world in theirs.
