After Nancy Kerr's family is murdered and she is left dying after being raped, tortured, and stabbed, Nancy decides the only possible way she can deal with what's happened to her is to get revenge.
I want to make it clear up front that I have never been the victim of a crime the likes of which Nancy Kerr or millions of other women have been. I've been lucky in that regard, so my opinion on Hell to Pay's message is going to be different from someone who might “get” what Jenny Thomson was aiming for in her book.

Dix (FBC Contributor Brandon Perdue): After the amount of yammering on I’ve done about Star Trek games, I would be remiss to not review Star Trek: The Video Game, based on JJ Abrams’s version of the franchise and bridging (some of) the gap between the 2009 movie and this year’s Star Trek Into Darkness. The game was described at E3 as a “bro-op,” alluding to the highly cooperative nature of the Kirk-and-Spock-centered gameplay the game intends. To adequately explore this, I called on my friend and fellow Trekker Kristine Chester of Fanboy Comics to help protect New Vulcan from Gorn invaders.
When war finally leaves Cybertron, a few Transformers are left behind to fend for themselves on a dying world with little energon, archaic weapons, and many others willing to fight to take from others what they can get.
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.
After a rough first day at a new military boarding school in the post-apocalyptic world, Ellie befriends Riley, a fellow student. Now, the two girls are breaking all the rules for a shot at freedom.
The Red Hunters have long protected Yomi Island from the threat of the Yokai demons, even if the peace-loving Ainu believe the demons are in fact benevolent spirits. This dispute over how to handle the Yokai threatens to break the tenuous alliance between the two peoples when the Red Hunters slay a Yokai in the middle of an Ainu spiritual ceremony! A young girl, Kani, is only half-Ainu, and so she volunteers to join the Red Hunters and bridge the gap between the two peoples and their different outlooks before they separate forever.
On the run from Imperial agents, Ania, Sauk, and AG-37 flee the Carreras system in AG's freighter with Imperial fighters hot on their trail. While the “theft” and possession of an Imperial Knight's lightsaber is taken seriously, once the property has been returned, you wouldn't think blasting someone out of the sky would be next on their agenda.
