Project Superpowers: Hero Killers #3

So, let’s do a quick recap: thus far Dr. Baron von Science, Black Terror, and Blue Bolt have all been killed by Tim using a ray gun stolen from found in Dr. Baron von Science’s secret lab. Here’s the thing, though – they weren’t. The ray gun didn’t disintegrate them, it transported them to the very strange Dimension 42. How strange you ask? Black Terror has only been there a week, and he has “vomited in horror fifteen times”.

We begin issue #3 with a continuation of the snark between the “Narrator” and the “Editor.” As far as the actual story in concerned, we find Rainbow Boy in a darkened kitchen, wearing nothing but his rainbow helmet, rainbow briefs, and the key to the city, where he is confronted by Tim over that key...

2000 AD Prog 1989

Writer: Dan Abnett
Artist: I.N.J. Culbard

In the near future, after Earth becomes uninhabitable, humanity now lives in a collection of floating habitats above the surface of the Earth called The Brink. Two Security officers, Carl “Brink” Brinkmann and Bridget “Bridge” Kurtis investigate drug use in the Odett Habitat, but a simple drug bust leads them to believe that cult activity has found its way into their Habitat, and chasing down this lead unveils a conspiracy that could determine the fate of the human race.

The real draw of Brink for me is the setting. People have just barely managed to escape extinction, and now they’re trapped together in tight quarters floating in space. Capitalism rules everything, with no true government...

Faith and the Future Force #1

Writer: Jody Houser
Artists: Stephen Segovia and Barry Kitson
Colors: Ulises Arreola

Faith Herbert is a superhero in hiding after she was framed for murder, but now she’s been recruited by a time-traveler and her dinosaur-women partner to help save all of time. Unfortunately, it may take more than just one hero to stop the killer robot that’s threatening all of reality.

Faith and the Future Force confuses me as a first issue to a series. The concept is pretty simple: time-traveller recruits superhero to save reality, so you’d imagine you don’t really need to spend much time on the concept, and instead you’d establish the characters, especially since the title seems to suggest this comic will follow a team of heroes. Weirdly enough, Faith and the Future Force does pretty much the...

Preacher Season 2 Ep 7: Pig

Directed by: Wayne Yip
Written by: Olivia Dufault

Flying pigs are really one of the least surprising things to happen on Preacher. In just one season we’ve had a cowboy from Hell, Hitler, secret organizations, an angel, and man-dog, so the flying pig fits right in. Still, it’s a problem for Herr Starr – who got a brief introduction a few episodes ago(and an even briefer cameo in the first season) – the head of The Grail’s Samson Unit, in charge of dealing with false prophets. Along with a better introduction to one of the stranger characters in a show full of strange characters, “Pig” deals with the fallout of Tulip’s encounter with the Saint, Jesse selling part of his soul, and the revelation that Denis is Cassidy’s son.

Unfortunately, this episode feels a bit cramped and d...
