Jasper Fadden had it all: a sweet mullet, a good job at a record shop, and a Veggie Mart within biking distance. That is until he got bit by a vampire and lost everything.

Twelve-year-old Aurora Grimeon’s life was turned upside down when her parents died suddenly after accidentally using death’s head mushrooms in a pasta sauce. She only survived the poisoning because a mysterious benefactor treated her with thistle milk, an herbal option not allowed in the US. Now, the young girl is being transported to her grandfather’s home on the remote Ossuary Isle, a tiny locale in the southern swamps created as a burial ground. The locals live to care for the graves, and outsiders are eyed with suspicion. Aurora must learn to accept local hoodoo traditions and find her place in this strange new society. It’s slow going for the metropolitan child, but when a supernatural threat from the distant past threatens everyone on the island, Miss Grimeon may be the only one with the strength to take it down.

I keep falling into this trap. I keep thinking that I know where The Star Wars is going, and I keep being surprised. The comic is based on George Lucas’ first draft of Star Wars, before he stripped out the craziest ideas. (This review will go much smoother if we all agree that Star Wars is super crazy, and that is one of the reasons that we like it.) So, if the movie counts as sane, how awesomely bonkers was the first draft? It was the best thing ever.

Bandette is a story about thievery, justice, small dogs, narrow escapes, and also capes, because all of these things matter to Bandette, a flamboyant costumed thief who is in the game as much for the enjoyment of a good heist as the money. With the help of her loyal friends, the Urchins, Bandette steals valuable paintings, stops other, less sporting, criminals as a favor to Inspector Belgique, and stays one step ahead of her enemies.

Welcome to Innovation, the brainchild of writer Wes Locher, in which Radical Development Scientific Laboratories Inc. (R.D.S.L.) is crafting the future, sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse.  This is an anthology series of sorts, with each issue containing four stories written by Locher, with art by four different artists, and all in way or another relating to R.D.S.L.  In this premiere issue, Locher does a solid job of setting up the ambiguity of R.D.S.L., portraying the corporation as mysterious, subversive, progressive, and highly successful and intelligent.  This is a future you aren’t sure you want to be a part of, where you may be a guinea pig without even knowing it and where humans and advanced technology coexist, though often flawed by human error.
