Dark Horse continues to collect stellar stories from their critically acclaimed Dark Horse Presents anthology stories into one-shots, and Corinna Bechko and Gabriel Hardman’s Station to Station is no exception. Originally appearing in three parts in Issues #19, 20, and 21 of the anthology series, this is a self-contained story that also lays the groundwork for further adventures in the world Bechko and Hardman have created, which is essentially our world, just with the addition of monsters from a plethora of other dimensions, parallel worlds, and alternate timelines – where exactly the monsters are from, we do not know, the more pressing concern is that they are now in our world. While the scope of the story is huge, the action is played out on a small, intimate scale, as the scientists who unwittingly unleashed these monsters must race to solve the problem before the monsters cause irreparable damage.
The latest issue of Mind MGMT follows Bill and Meru as they attempt to find answers to Meru’s past and keep to the edges of the upcoming conflict between Lyme and the Eraser. There are some tantalizing hints and interesting character developments sprinkled in with the spy story. In fact, Mind MGMT is exactly what we all thought Lost was: a sci-fi story that has fascinating characters and a deep and well thought out mythology. It is also as good as we all thought Lost was.

Well, I hope you’re all satisfied. You broke the internet. Again.
Late Thursday evening, Warner Bros. announced that multiple Oscar winner Ben Affleck would be playing a re-booted Bruce Wayne in their Man of Steel sequel/Batman vs. Superman thingy. Holy crap, did the fanboy universe not take that well. There was whining and crying and gnashing of teeth. Like spoiled middle school kids determined to get pizza back in the cafeteria, geeks created online petitions demanding Affleck be fired from the movie. (I know the internet can be a wildly unreliable source of information, but it’s being reported by multiple sites that Affleck has signed on to make as many as 13 film appearances as Batman. Affleck’s not going anywhere.)
Eponymous is a modern-day superhero story from the monthly digital anthology VS Comics, written by Mike Garley, with art by Martin Simmonds, and lettered by Mike Stock. The story takes place in a time when super-powered individuals no longer permeate the population, though there are definite hints that they used to, and that they became something of a problem. So, when the superhero Eponymous comes onto the scene, we know it is a big deal, though it is not exactly clear why. There is a secret organization that believes Eponymous may be responsible for a horrible tragedy in the future and is determined to take her down at any cost, including sacrificing the life of Lucy, a young girl who has nightmares of horrible catastrophes that eventually come true.
Short but sweet is a phrase that seems crafted specifically for writer Kel Symons’ Image comic series I Love Trouble. With the release of issue #6, Symons and guest artist Nathan Stockman (Anti-Hero) bid farewell to I Love Trouble, tying up loose ends, providing just enough resolution necessary, and leaving the door open for other tales, just in case.

Beginning as a student publication as part of UCLA’s Daily Bruin, C’est la Vie has since become a syndicated comic strip on the Internet. Since 2003, the comic has shown us the inner thoughts and feelings—such as they are—of a French expatriate woman in the Los Angeles area, working hard as an art columnist at a local newspaper and trying her best to ignore American culture while cultivating her own unique world. Full of sarcastic wit and cynical outlooks, CLV is good for a quick laugh, but there’s also plenty of involved storytelling and semi-drama to keep a person interested. While not one of the more well-known webcomics out there, CLV nonetheless has an excellent following and is shown to be of great quality. C’est la Vie updates every day at clv-comic.com.

Angel Falling is a graphic novel, written and created by Jeffrey Kaufman, about a woman named Angel who wakes up on a dumpster in an alley, half clothed and with no memory of who she is. The only thing she knows is a young autistic kid named Connor. She soon finds out, though, that she and Connor are two of the deadliest people on the planet, and that Connor also has the gift of a photographic physical memory that allows him to instantly be able to perform any task he witnesses. As Angel spends more time around Connor, the more she realizes that Connor knows where she (and he) came from, but doesn’t want them to go back, and that there are people who will stop at nothing to keep them from escaping.
