Set in Peru some time in the near future, Puno picks up where Manu ends with Canela (a.k.a. Lila) making a deal with a local thug in order to leave the country. The last of her gang that may have had something to do with the destruction of Lima, known as Lima Roja, she may be the key to finding an old friend (Limón) who is now known as Marco Poma. In this world where bio-technology is the norm, there are hints that Marco may have become more than the sum of his parts. His mere existence threatens the military and the government who will stop at nothing to track him down - even the violent and horrific assault on a village of indigenous people. But to do what she needs to do, Canela has some tough choices to make.

Homeschooling for me has previously increased the opportunities to explore STEM activities with my kids. This past week, more specifically, has given my kids an opportunity to create some very fun science experiments. As our kids have been learning about various Earth Science-related things this school year, I’ve come across videos on YouTube to help show or explain how certain things happen. Ocean currents is one prime example. Yes, it’s possible to do an experiment at home in the hopes of showing how the interaction of warm and cold water makes ocean currents.

The first comic book adaptation of Star Wars began BEFORE any film hit the theaters. Star Wars #1, published by Marvel Comics, introduced readers to Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, C-3PO, R2D2, and Darth Vader. By the time the movie storyline wrapped up with issue #6, the film was a runaway hit. The book was notable in a number of different ways: In the days before home media, it was one of the only ways anyone interested in the story could relive it once the film left theaters. The comic also helped Marvel to keep itself afloat during a precarious time in comics. Without Star Wars, the publisher would have been in deep financial problems. Thus, it’s important to look at the newly released comic book adaptation of Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker, published by IDW Publishing, for its importance in the scope of the series and the industry. In many ways, this book is just as unique and important as its 1977 ancestor.

Nocterra is the new creator-owned series by a little-known indie writer by the name of Scott Snyder. We’re introduced to a world of everlasting darkness that slowly turns living beings into dangerous creatures, and the only way to survive is by staying close to artificial light. Like any post-apocalyptic series, humanity is forced to live in communities known as outposts, just barely safe from the monsters lurking.
Previously on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Buffy was feeling a bit outclassed by her fellow Slayers, and Willow’s astral jaunts brought her to some unexpected revelations.
At some point, Keanu Reeves went to BOOM! Studios with an idea, and they hooked him up with creator Matt Kindt. The creative partnership was born that would kick off BRZRKR, one of the most highly anticipated comic books in quite some time. I personally have loved this period of both Reeve’s and Kindt’s careers. To see them team up is both unexpected and yet somehow perfect. Together, along with Ron Garney and Rob Crabtree, they have given us what may be the most violent comic book that I’ve seen since Kick-Ass, but also a character that reminds me of the heyday of Wolverine, near the beginning of comic book series. Our hero is drawn to violence, just as much as violence is drawn to him. Make no mistake: As with most of Reeve’s and Kindt’s work, amidst the chaos and blood-soaked panels beats a very human story.
