A drought-stricken future has made snowfall rare, precious, and controlled. For ten years the fate of mankind has rested in the hands of the Cooperative States of America and the Hazeltyne Corporation. But, when a terrorist known as the White Wizard reappears to wreak havoc again, Inspector Davitka Deal is sent to track him down before the death toll rises. Unfortunately, college student Anthony Farrow has found him first, and he is not what he expected.

Ahh, election season.
Nothing says "United Stated of America" like defriending your racist cousins and Republican friends on Facebook. Or perhaps you're one of those uneducated elephants who believes one book should govern our 50 beautiful states. And, you're absolutely right. It's those devilish Democratic donkeys and their gay hippie love that need to be thwarted the way Obi-Wan defiled his apprentice. Because, you know, just because our Constitution claims that all men and women are created equal doesn't really mean that women deserve equal pay and homosexuals should be allowed to marry someone with the same genitals between their legs! Gross!
Like the original Star Trek, the Lost in Space TV series is a science-fiction classic that has spawned decades of fandom, a cinematic reboot, and much more over the years. With the recent release of Irwin Allen’s Lost in Space: The Lost Adventures comic book miniseries, American Gothic Press has become the latest “life line” for those fans who still wish to be lost in space just a little bit longer.

Comic book writer Mark Evanier commenced the hour of “Cover Story” by relating that in the industry's early days, 95% of a comic book's selling potential was reliant on the cover art. Part of the reason for this was because comics used to be sold on newsstands. He related that, at that time, the stories were written based on the cover; however, after comics moved off the newsstands and into the local comic book shop, and a non-return policy was put into place, the emphasis on cover art changed. Now, the story influences the cover; however, the cover is drawn and completed months before the interiors are realized.
Please note that The Arkham Sessions podcast, hosted by Dr. Andrea Letamendi and Brian Ward, is syndicated each week on Fanboy Comics.
On Friday afternoon, many WonderCon attendees packed one of the conference rooms in the West Hall to listen to television writers discuss the Marvel shows they are working on with moderator Brian Ward (The Arkham Sessions). Four Marvel shows were represented - D.J. Doyle (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Jose Molina (Agent Carter), Lindsey Allen (Agent Carter), Christos Gage (Daredevil), and Scott Reynolds (Jessica Jones) - while Dr. Andrea Letamendi (The Arkham Sessions) provided her psychological expertise to explore the dramatic psyche of each central character.
This is the penultimate issue of Trista & Holt, and it’s a doozy. Trista has been kidnapped and is now being driven to who knows where. The opening of this adventure is Trista’s inner monologue as she tries to figure out what has happened to her and piece together what her captors are saying.
It once took Weyland Yutani fifty-seven years to locate Ellen Ripley’s lost cryotube, thaw her out, and send the ill-fated power loader operator back out on another “bug hunt.” Now, Dark Horse Comics certainly hasn’t let its Aliens license gather dust for fifty-seven years, but the popular comics based on the successfully film franchise have certainly been dormant for some time now. Well, the wait is over and, like a fully formed chestburster, Dark Horse’s latest xenomorph-infested comic series is ready to emerge in extraordinary fashion.
