Red Sonja Holiday Special #1

Red Sonja inexplicably sits on the ground in skins. Her flesh appears frostbitten as she is completely blue. Is she dead? As snow blows around her she seems to be alive.

Holiday Special. It isn’t a Christmas or Chanukah Special because this book is striving to attain the same heights as the Star Wars Holiday Special. How does it measure up?

Black Hammer – Cthu-Louise

Story – Jeff Lemire

Art – Emi Lenox

Colors – Dave Stewart

Letters – Todd Klein

This venture by writer Jeff Lemire in his Black Hammer Series is a one-shot story. That fact is welcome by me because I personally have yet to read any book in the Black Hammer series. I have been meaning to, just haven’t got there yet. The story is about a little girl who is half human half the Lovecraftian creature Cthulhu, and her plight dealing with the other “normal” students in her school.

I absolutely LOVE this book the writing is fantastic, Lemire paints a beautiful picture of teenage angst and pain through the eyes of this little monster girl. It is a fantastic allegory about being happy with who you are in life and appreciating where you come from.

The art by Emi Lenox is very good, it is very cart...

ARCHIE #700

Story by Nick Spencer

Art by Marguerite Sauvage

Letters by Jack Morelli

THE DEAL: Issue #700. Seven. Hundred. That should say everything about the staying power of Riverdale’s eponymous hero and his crew of pals. They’re all here, just like always … well, not exactly. Jughead’s still eating burgers like there’s a beef shortage, but now he does it as a restaurant critic for the local paper; Reggie is living like the world spins around him, fresh from football camp; Veronica and Betty have spent their summers thinking about their ginger crush – actually, that hasn’t changed since issue #1. Seriously, there have got to be better options in that town than one flighty, freckled boy.

They’d better hope so, anyway. Change is coming to town, and she’s got some secrets under her sleeve.

THE GOOD...
