City Fall is the first big event storyline in IDW’s newest Ninja Turtle series. Two years ago, IDW brought back Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles creator Kevin Eastman to oversee a new story that takes the best elements of everything that came before and incorporates them in an action-packed cowabunga-fest. They’ve taken their time introducing the turtles, Shredder, the foot clan, other rival gangs, and fan-favorite character Casey Jones. Now that all those elements are in place, it is time for Eastman and series writer Tom Waltz to take all their toys out of the toy bin and tell an epic adventure.
A few months ago, IDW relaunched all their G.I. Joe lines with new titles that are designed to be easy for readers to jump right in and follow the adventures of the Real American Heroes. I decided I would start reading and reviewing the flagship title, G.I. Joe, by Fred Van Lente and Steve Kurth. We are four issues in, and the previous 3 issues have been amazing for all readers and really terrible for the Joes. The Joes have been split up, pinned down, and under siege since halfway through Issue #1, while their leader Duke is tortured by the evil Baroness and Dr. Mindbender.
What makes the Danger Girl: Trinity series so much fun is that it doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s total sensationalism—full of explosions and scantily clad women—and it owns that fact. The situations are often over the top and full of adrenaline, but behind the epic car chases and gun battles (sometimes happening simultaneously) is just a touch of silliness that makes it truly fun.

“I went to the woods, because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”
- Henry David Thoreau
I'm not sure if it would be appropriate to use the word “cool” to describe me as a high school student. I'm not certain if teenagers have the capacity for actual coolness. I was a teacher for ten years, and I can assure you the ones labeled as the “cool kids” are usually anything but. Those are the kids who are obsessed with being trendy, and there's nothing less cool than that. My friends and I played sports and were involved in a lot at school, but, most importantly, we were very interested in popular culture. We have subscriptions to Rolling Stone and Premiere and the like, and we read those publications cover-to-cover.

Strange Attractors is a unique brand of science fiction. It’s not about starships or time machines or genetic experiments. Instead, it’s about the advanced mathematical equations that can find patterns in the complex systems that govern the chaos of our world. Sound boring? Not at all. The story doesn’t delve into any great detail about what these equations are, any more than Back to the Future delves into how the flux capacitor works. Instead, it shows us characters who are able to use these equations to shape reality and predict and influence the world around them.
Oh my god, that dead monkey! I'd read this comic for the little ghost alone. Amala's Blade is the story of Amala, the greatest assassin in all the land, at least to hear her tell it. Amala sees ghosts of everyone and everything she's killed (including that monkey!) as they haunt her. After being sent on a contract to kill Lady Strawbale, the highest-ranking Purifier noblewoman, Amala finds herself in quite a bit of trouble when a group of Modifier soldiers catch up with her and are about to make her life a living hell.
