Jai Nitz and Greg Smallwood’s Dream Thief continues to deliver the goods in its fourth issue, though it’s hard to believe there is only one more issue to go in the miniseries, both because I am enjoying it so much, and because I’m curious how they are going to wrap up their intriguing, dark tale by the fifth issue. Hopefully, this will only be the end of the first miniseries, as there are endless adventures that supernaturally possessed vigilante John Lincoln could find himself tangled up in, as the inherent nature of the mask would make it perfect for long term episodic-style storytelling. But, those are questions more suited to the review of the fifth issue.

Just when you think you're out, they pull you back in. Adhering to the comment I made in my last The Final Plague review, recaps be damned (at least by them). The boys working with Action Lab aren't about to surmise what happened in previous issues, and, quite frankly, neither am I. Okay, I lied. The Final Plague tells a tale that, as partakers of most any media these day, we've seen a few times. The infected. Those that change from their original state of being to something else. Vampires, werewolves, zombies, fair weather fans of sports teams once they start doing well. The Final Plague skews from that well-worn material and spins it with something that hasn't been a real worry since the days of the Black Death. Infected animals. Jumping from one location to another across the fruited plain, we are shown that distance isn't a factor when it comes to these viral creatures . . . unless we find out in a future issue that the spreading of the virus has been happening longer than we have been shown to this point. We'll have to wait and see.

‘Sacrifice:’ Advance Hardcover Review

If you haven’t heard of writer Sam Humphries and artist Dalton Rose’s Sacrifice, or haven’t picked up any of their completely self-published issues in your independent comic-supporting comic shop, or caught them on ComiXology, then it is time to finally right a grievous wrong. Luckily for you, Dark Horse Comics is making your penance easy, by collecting all six issues of this spectacular miniseries into a single deluxe hardcover book. Even better for you, it is chock full of sketches, character designs, and variant covers. Those extras though are merely a portion of your reward for undertaking Sacrifice’s mystical, mind-bending, ancient, and blood-soaked journey. The majority of the reward is found in the wildly original story, unique, almost at times transcendent art, and the elaborate execution, in more ways than one, of the whole project. Intrigued? I’m sure you are, as you should be.

Lobster Johnson: A Scent of Lotus is every bit as pulpy noir as it is Lovecraftian. It is the rare balance of where the crime noir shore meets the ocean of lost myths and stories. It is this humble, yet amazingly well spoken and good-looking, writer's opinion that Lobster Johnson is one of the best of the many spinoffs in the Hellboy universe.
