I must admit, I jumped into Star Wars: Legacy without knowing what I was getting myself into.  But, I will say that I'm glad I did. 

The latest issue of Matt Kindt’s Mind MGMT starts to tease Meru’s ultimate strengths just as things look the bleakest. Wanted for murder and on the run from the law, she needs to figure out her plan of attack. The problem is that she is penniless and stranded in Hong Kong, has no allies, and has no plan. Fortunately, several things have been put in motion to help unlock Meru’s true potential.

‘Stuck:’ Graphic Novel Review

Anyone who’s felt they live a dead-end life wishes for some excitement. Leanne, the heroine in Stuck (Broken Icon Comics), gets to experience that excitement and then some.

I haven’t read a book in the last few months. Stuff got in the way . . . but, luckily, I got the chance to check out Dead Letters Volume One, and I must say, Ding ding ding! We have a winner!  I don’t want to spoil much; the book is juicy, layered, and fun. It fuses themes from supernatural, noir, and Blacksploitation to make an impressive impact.

Like the legendary archangels of Biblical mythology, Monomyth #2 does exactly what it has to. Writer Siike Donnelly and artist Eric Ninaltowski add layers, history, and complexity to their alternate reality in the Garden of Eden, while still maintaining the action and excitement from the premiere issue.

SPOILERS BELOW

Okay . . . having reviewed the last two volumes of this serious, I knew it was violent (which normally doesn’t bother me), but if you’re not prepared for it or don’t like it, this might not be the comic for you. Just saying . . .

BOOM! Studios’ Clive Barker’s Hellraiser: Bestiary #1 contains three very short stories set in the Hellraiser milieu. The first, “Symphony in Red” by Ben Meares and Mark Miller, depicts the growing bloodlust of a demonic torturer. The second, “Desert Fathers” by Victor LaValle, presents a conflict between a present-day band of demon hunters and a demon. The third, “The Hunted, Part One,” again by Ben Meares and Mark Miller, illustrates the capture and impending torture of a down-on-his-luck pinhead.

Issue one of Dark Horse’s Pop introduces readers to a world where pop stars are grown in vats and managed by nefarious taskmasters. The primary action concerns the escape of the ever-lovely “Elle” from one such vat, and her awkward rescue by a depressive named Coop. In the closing pages, the story takes up a subplot about a Justin Bieber-ish character who runs afoul of his management — and pays for his indiscretion with his kneecaps.

It can be difficult to replicate an actor's voice in a comic book, but writer Nick Abadzis has been doing a great job capturing David Tennant's frenetic and wordy cadence in Titan Comics' Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor.

Doctor Who has returned to the small screen for the start of its latest season, and, in the spirit of celebrating with Whovians everywhere, Fanboy Comics invites you to tune in to a live special discussion of the season premiere episode, hosted online by The Los Angeles Times on Monday, August 25, 2014, at Noon (PST).
