Great Pacific #11 is another fantastic outing from writer Joe Harris and artist Martin Morazzo. The end of the last issue found things looking pretty dire for our old pal Chas Worthington, who was abducted from his hotel room while visiting New York City to petition the United Nations for statehood for New Texas. But, who’s responsible for his kidnapping, and what do they want with him? Is it the Americans who despise him for embezzling money to start New Texas? Is it Green-X, the terror group responsible for sabotaging work sites on the Patch? Or is it some previously unknown threat, which has decided to emerge from the shadows? Meanwhile, Zoe befriends the mystery girl, Lucy, from the work site, who leads her to discovering a very interesting piece of the puzzle involving our friend Chas and his plans for New Texas.
The characters of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the various reincarnations of Star Trek are no strangers to the apocalypse. In fact, one may argue that there are no better individuals with which to surround yourself when the apocalypse does arrive! That is exactly what writers/comedians Gabriel Diani and Etta Devine have done in their upcoming feature-length film, Diani & Devine Meet the Apocalypse. Written by and starring Diani and Devine, the project is an apocalyptic comedy in the spirit of the old Bob Hope and Bing Crosby “Road” movies about two struggling comedians who discover that surviving the apocalypse is almost as difficult as surviving in Hollywood. The dynamic duo will be appearing alongside Buffy and Star Trek alums including Armin Shimerman (Star Trek: Deep Space 9, Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Harry Groener (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dear John), and Kitty Swink (Star Trek, Nikki and Nora), as well as fan favorites like Janet Varney (The Legend of Korra), Dawn Didawick (Hart of Dixie, Erin Brockovich), and Barry Bostwick (Rocky Horror Picture Show, Spin City).
In order to make this indie film a reality, the filmmakers launched their own Kickstarter campaign today to raise the necessary production costs for the film, and they need your help!

Can you believe it’s been 10 years since The Walking Dead comic first debuted? It doesn’t seem like that long. But, then again, that may be because for a fair amount of people, myself included, their introduction to The Walking Dead didn’t come until 2010, with the premiere of the TV show.
Samurai Jack is back! When fighting the evil wizard Aku, Jack was blasted into the far off future, and his quest has always been to find a way home and return to stop Aku before he can corrupt the world. Right away, Jim Zub shines a little more light on the Samurai Jack mythos with the reveal of how Aku blasted Jack into the future. This includes a ray of hope for Jack to fix the damage done and finally get back to his own time. Personally, I love the expansion on the Samurai Jack lore. The explanation is solid but not something accomplished immediately, providing room for plenty of stories and giving each issue a focus and a challenge while still having a connecting thread.

When I reviewed the first issue of The Answer way back in January, I found it quite entertaining, with adistinct, slightly off-kilter personality that appealed to me and the suggestion that what was to come would be a fun ride. I had every intention of following it, but promptly failed to do so, and so coming to this collection of the Mike Norton and Dennis Hopeless 4-issue miniseries was my chance to remedy that particular oversight. The end product is a good, but not great, little book that ought to entertain while it lasts but not too much longer.
