Pinocchio #1

The first of many, this pulp novella, combining both comic art and short story prose, chronicles the rise of everyone’s favorite politician Pinocchio. Be prepared to have your childhood ruined further!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Not much of a synopsis, I know.  Let me see if I can add a bit more so that y’all aren’t lost. Pinocchio appears to be a college kid who can’t stay out of trouble. From a wealthy family, his mama isn’t impressed and gives him a task to help make up for his bad behavior. There..I think that’s a pretty good summary. Now…on to the review!

The good: The art, while very adult in nature, is very well done. The black and white actually lends to your eyes being drawn to the details...

Future Quest Presents #3 Review

Future Quest Presents (2017-) #3

Future Quest Presents #3 moves fairly briskly, so here we go.  Metallus explains why he and his followers never left the mines by flying across the chasm.  They tried, but without their protective suits to hold them together their new energy forms soon dissipated, so they were stuck. However, Igoo, who was equally unable to cross, created a bridge to join Space Ghost’s party. Metallus uses this bridge to escape the mine and takes off in a hidden mining ship.
Space Ghost follows the ship to Voranova, the now dead planet that was home to the Space Force. Driven mad (well, even madder) by his spoiled revenge, Metallus draws on the energy of his people, killing them in the process, and attacks Space Ghost...

Shadowman: Rae Sremmurd #1 Review

Writer: Eliot Rahal

Publisher: Valiant

After a rap duo known as Rae Sremmurd sign a deal with the devil to gain fame and fortune, Shadowman is brought in to rescue them from the devil’s lair in the Deadside, a land of demons and strange creatures.

The plot doesn’t really go beyond that short synopsis, this comic is fairly simple, but that’s a good thing. It’s an entertaining read, and not much more than that, but that’s fine. It’s accomplishes what it sets out to be.
