While BOOM!’s Sons of Anarchy comic series (inspired by the FX television show) was created to stand on its own, having watched the show definitely adds to the reader's understanding and enjoyment of the comic. The issues within the comic series do not stand alone, but rather build off each other to create an original subplot, which takes place during Season 5 of the TV series. The comic subplot centers on Season 6 newcomer Kendra, the niece of a former Jim Crow Member. Kendra’s uncle was also Tig’s best friend.

Tomorrowland is not a graphic novel; it is an experience. Before reading this graphic novel, I was unaware of the famous Tomorrowland Festival in Belgium. Writer Paul Jenkins does an excellent job of not only creating an original story incorporating the belief systems, people, and imagery from the actual festival, but he also helps to educate the reader about the festival itself, enticing them to learn more and become a fan if not already one. After reading this graphic novel, I am eager to someday attend Tomorrowland in Belgium and its sister festival, Tomorrowworld, that just opened in September of 2013 in Chattahoochee Hills (near Atlanta, Georgia). Jenkins has created a mythology to enhance the experiences of patrons attending the annual world famous Tomorrowland Festival, as well as novices such as myself. It's a fun and beautiful graphic novel and a brilliant marketing strategy!

The Vale: I Don’t Know What I Did Last Summer takes readers into a world where Lovecraftian-like elder gods have forcibly sundered the wall between their world and ours. Fay, elders, and humans mingle uneasily as everyone is a little afraid of what the others could do. Despite their differences, Shugg (an elder), Jan (a human), and Liam (a fay) have forged a close friendship. The comic looks at Liam’s stag party (roughly equivalent to a bachelor party in the US) where Shugg and Jan join the leprechaun-looking fellow’s other pals in Derry, Ireland, for a night of drinking and debauchery that will not be mentioned again. Due to the subject matter of the comic, this is definitely for mature readers only.

After reading/reviewing writer Jesse Young’s touching and heartfelt online comic Here We Go (which you can/should be read here) for Fanboy Comics a while back, I jumped at the chance to read his new comic, The Daring Adventures of Android Jones. Yes, the story is as fun and exciting as the title makes it out to be. The long and short of it is, Android Jones and his trusty robot Pip find themselves in a bit of a kerfuffle after a “misunderstanding” with some alien inhabitants of the planet that Jones and Pip were sent to survey. Young is quite a talented writer, whose work is always a pleasure to read. Joining Young on this adventure, pun intended, are artist Ryan Cody and Thomas Mauer on lettering. Cody’s artwork is wonderful. It’s vibrant, colorful, and brings the story and world to life.
