For a book with the word “mind” in it, Mind MGMT requires a surprising amount of thought, go figure. This is a comic of conspiracies and intrigue and will require a second and maybe a third read to fully appreciate all the moving pieces.
After being absent for issues, Prince Robot IV is back and still destined for the planet Quietus in an effort to anticipate Alana and Marko's next destination to meet famed author D. Oswald Heist. Like when The Will returned, it's good to have IV back in action.

The world is still recovering from the aftermath of “The Death of Everyone,” and it is up to Cecil Stedman to return everything to the status quo. This issue picks up at the end of Invincible #100 and follows Cecil as he deals with the massive, world-wide cleanup.
At WonderCon this year, I had the pleasure of attending a screening of the latest Doctor Who episode, “The Bells of Saint John.” Being able to see the episode on the big screen with a throng of fellow fans was quite an enjoyable experience.
"We all go a little mad sometimes." - Norman Bates
Ain't that the truth? I was so mad when I heard they were making a show called Bates Motel. I figured it was A&E jumping on the success train of hour-long horror dramas ignited by Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story, as Hollywood is cannibalistic. If a fresh idea is successful, they must suck dry the last ire of moisture from the creative marrow. Although over-the-top and eye roll worthy at times, Fox's The Following is a welcome addition to the horror trend tip. It's a knock off of Silence of the Lambs meets Sister Wives, but intriguing nonetheless. So, I figured, what the heck? I'll give Bates Motel a shot. It's a great concept. If they do it right, it could be killer!
Motorcycles, magic, vengeance, voodoo, and roadkill. All of these things and more make up the new comic book series Roadkill du Jour by writer Kevin LaPorte (Inverse Press' Clown Town), artist Shawn Harbin (BSX22 Studios' The Dungeon Comic), and colorist Laura Guzzo (Action Lab's PrinceLess). If you like your comics dark and gritty with a splash of black magic thrown in for good meausre, then this is the series for you. In the latest Kickstarter campaign from Inverse Press, Roadkill du Jour is a tale of motorcycle gangs in a mystic bayou world, clashing in an explosion of vengeance and voodoo.
