Honeysuckle has arrived in Denver, only to find Dr. Rusted dead at what appears to be at the hands of a racist neighbor.  Not one to become a victim herself, she turns the tables on him when he makes an attempt on her life. 

In Metal Society, robots dominate the Earth, and humans are extinct—until the robots get bored and decide to reintroduce humans back into society. 

As Honeysuckle, Marc, and Templeton walk to Denver, they come upon a police officer who is using convicts to help clear the road of bodies.

Traveling to Denver to let Dr. Rusted know what happened to his wife and daughter, Honeysuckle survives an attack by the Comet Cult with the help of former MMA fighter Marc DeSpot.  (The Cult thinks she will turn their leader into the FBI since they claim he foretold the deadly rain.)

As I dig into my Kickstarter pile again, I ran across a favorite artist of mine, Edwin Arroza. He’s been doing several indie comics over the last few years, and I always appreciated his style. This time, he came on board Century House, a series from Skeletal Press.

The Solstice celebration turns violent for Edward when he’s attacked by Enrique’s mechanical spiders, but things don’t turn out like the vampire planned. Our magical unicorn fends them off and kills Enrique’s brother in the process.  Vowing revenge, Enrique decides to retreat when Seamus comes to his foster brother’s aid.  Jezebel is still determined to lift Edward’s curse with help from Isadora, but it comes with a hitch—it may not be permanent.

When we last left Jezebel, she had discovered that the unicorn was her Uncle Seamus’ long lost brother, Prince Edward. The young men had parted angrily, as Edward had wanted the adoration his foster brother received from their father. In a fit of jealousy, Edward made a bargain with a witch to give him magic. It is not surprising the witch had a trick up her sleeve and turned him into a unicorn. Ashamed of his actions, he hid in the forest near the marsh for years, and it was only when Jezebel befriended him that the two brothers reunited.

On a gorgeous summer day in Boulder, Colorado, Honeysuckle nervously awaits the arrival of her girlfriend Yolanda who is moving in. Their relationship is filled with romance and rife with opportunity.  They are surrounded by those who accept their relationship wholeheartedly, like Yolanda’s mother, and those who aren’t quite sure what to make of it, like their neighbor, Mr. Waldman. Even the kid next door, Blake, is cute and charming in all the right ways. It would be a happy time if the death of everything that Honeysuckle has ever known and loved wasn’t right around the corner.

Kidnapped and with his liver removed, Matt fights for survival, but just when he thinks all is lost, the most unlikely person saves him—Robert. Matt’s former mentor insists the real culprit is Frances, but Matt refuses to believe him. Matt’s mental health is challenged as he keeps having hallucinations of Pamela Wilton and his family, or are they something else? Spirits? His conscience? Added to his anxiety is Matt’s relationship with Robert. Though they once shared a deep friendship, it isn’t enough to convince Matt that Robert is telling the truth. Meanwhile, Ava struggles with her feelings for Matt as Robert re-evaluates his relationship with God. But the real question is, what does all this mean for Matt now that he has a Regenerist liver?

You could almost begin the story of Paleocene with the words, “Once upon a time,” but that would give you the impression this was a fairy tale, and it is not. It is a tale of those animals who survived the end of the world. Not the present world as we know it, but far into the past, when a massive asteroid slammed into the Yucatán peninsula over sixty-six million years ago.
