The creative team of writer Michael Lent and artist Marc Rene are back with the second chapter of their mind-bending and visually stunning sci-fi indie comic miniseries, The Machine Stops. Based on the only science fiction short story written by E.M. Forster, the famous English novelist who wrote such classics as A Room with a View and A Passage to India, Lent and Rene’s adaptation continues to be a relevant and timely story that is sure to engage fans of classic science fiction that challenges the reader.

Light Brigade is a bravado piece of storytelling.  Created by writer Peter J. Tomasi and artist Peter Snejbjerg, it packs a wallop of classic, good-old-fashioned adventure, while also delving into the reasons men go to war and the effects of war on their psyches, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually.  Here’s the simple story, as solid and entertaining as the best of “small-band-of heroes/antiheroes against all odds” military movies go, but with a spectacular supernatural twist: An American infantry division in Europe during World War II becomes tasked with helping the forces of Heaven stop the forces of Hell from taking dominion over Heaven and Earth by acquiring the Sword of God.  That is the premise at its most boiled down, but Light Brigade is equal parts supernatural action adventure and human drama, and Tomasi packs so much introspection and emotion into his tale of soldiers struggling with ideas of faith, fate, duty, and honor that you find yourself not only reveling in the battle against the forces of evil, largely made up of undead Nazi soldiers, but also contemplating the meaning and importance of sacrifice, and of life itself.

In honor of the 50th Anniversary of G.I. Joe, Geeks Care: How You Can Help has turned its attention to an organization that not only loves all things Joe but is also doing its part to help our Real American Heroes.  Several members of The Finest: A G.I. Joe Costume Club, the world's premier G.I. Joe/Cobra costuming group in the world (portraying the uniforms of the basic G.I. Joe and Cobra infantry troopers, the more specialized operatives of the Cobra Viper corps, and more), have banded together to create a Joe-themed 2015 calendar, the proceeds of which will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.  The calendar will portray all of your favorite female characters (plus a few twists on classic characters) and has aptly been named the Girls of The Finest 2015 calendar.  While the profits will be donated to charity, the members of The Finest need your help to make this terrific project a reality.

There are many different flavors of hit men. Some are masters of political assassinations, some try to find inventive new ways to kill people, some yodel, but they all have their own distinctive style, their mark. Mike Fallon's is a gift for setting up accidents. What looks like a suicide or a terrible car accident might, in fact, be a murder caused by an accident man.

After the recent release of the digital series Caper, Geek & Sundry has partnered with Bryan Singer's Bad Hat Harry to present the digital-only series Spooked, the first episode of which will be released on Wednesday, April 16th, 2014, (10 a.m./PST / 1 p.m./EST) on the free, ad-supported Hulu, Hulu Plus subscription service, and YouTube.

By necessity, Lazarus spends a lot of time talking about family.  It’s usually “the Family” or something, or loyalty thereto, whether born of blood ties or social status.  What Forever Carlyle endured for her Family in order to become its glorified bodyguard makes it all the more tense to watch her serve.  She’s a character who, as an adult, barely seems human, but her story makes it feel like that’s a tragedy, not a creative mistake.

“We call it the House.  The way it works is that you die . . . and where you wake up is a black pit of a room.  The first room. Your Room.
You can create that room in any fashion you want just by imagining the components.  Unless, of course, the process gets interrupted . . .
In which case, well, you have the start of Sam’s tale . . .
A tale that begins with a dark room filled with the sound of wailing souls.”

Sam Coleman is dead.  This much he knows.  What he doesn’t know is why he woke up in a dark room in a house with seemingly limitless space and bricked-in doors . . . and demons trying to kill him. 

Do not be deceived by the title of this hardcover from Titan Books.  Snowpiercer Volume 2: The Explorers is actually Snowpiercer 2: The Explorers AND Snowpiercer 3: The Crossing collected in a single edition.  It is the sequel to the original graphic novel (You may have seen my review.), and, like the first, it is drawn by the talented Jean-Marc Rochette; however, these new adventures, chronicling the plight of the last remnants of humanity on an unending journey aboard the ice-breaking behemoth Snowpiercer perpetually circling the frozen globe, are penned by a different writer, Benjamin Legrand.  Legrand continued the series when the original writer, Jaques Lob, passed away in 1990.
