Seven writers, seven artists, and seven meteors come together to tell a series of stories set in the post-apocalyptic world of The Wrecked Earth, the same universe where C.E.L. Welsh's novel, CLUTCH, takes place. I reviewed CLUTCH last year and had the pleasure of speaking with Welsh and some of the others on the Seven Stones team a month ago about this exciting project.

If you like your fiction with a little bit of science, then Albert Einstein: Time Mason may be the independent comic you have been waiting to discover. Written by Tony Donley and Marcus Perry, and drawn by Donley, the first issue is going to be a print reality through their Tiny Donkey Studios, thanks to a successful and entertaining Kickstarter campaign. But, Kickstarter campaigning aside, this is one fun, creative book. Einstein is cool, smart, suave, young, with his trademark moustache (though his hair hasn’t gone white yet), and, oh yeah, he can travel through time.

The New Marvel is a series that looks at the changes that the mega-comic empire made following the events of Avengers vs. X-Men and the impact that those changes have on the stories of Marvel NOW! Six issues (or more) into each Marvel NOW! title, we see what our favorite characters are up to and what to keep an eye out for in the future.


It isn’t unusual for a group of superheroes to come together in a time of crisis, but this time it is very different. Facing a threat from ancient Asgard, the shieldmaiden Valkyrie, escort of the honored dead and leader of the Valkyrior, brings together her fellow female superheroes to take on the enemy, even though they don’t know what it is yet. Throughout their struggle, they come face-to-face with a chilling aspect of Valkyrie’s past that could change the world as we know it. Determined not to give in, to protect the innocent, and to stand side-by-side in battle, these women are none other than the Fearless Defenders.

For most of the last few years, the “Expanded Universe” has focused on the continuing and further adventures of the base (and sometimes minor) characters from the original films, and this novel is no different.  Luke Skywalker, Leia Organo, and Han Solo, the heroes of the Rebellion and the founders of a New Republic, have been involved in every single galaxy-changing event since they left the hanger of the first Death Star, their lives defined by the eternal struggle of good versus evil; however, in the face of a new problem that threatens to change the balance of the galactic economy and the stability of the tentative peace, the triumphant trio makes some radical decisions that forever alter the lives of everyone involved.

Dishonored takes place in the plague-ridden town of Dunwall. The city looks like it is steampunk at first glance, but there is nothing here that is powered by steam. The chief power source in Dunwall is whale. This is whalepunk, and it is kind of awesome. Totally gruesome and terrible, but awesome all the same. The thing is, Dunwall is being infested by plague rats, and they inform everything about the environment. The more people you kill in the game, and the more trouble you cause, the more rats and plague victims there are. The city reflects the way you play in a tangible way. There is some serious gameplay impact, but it also drives the emotional impact of the game.
