Medisin #1

Criminal mastermind Malady has recruited a team of down on their luck physicians to provide medical aid for the world’s worst bad guys. Led by the brilliant Ethan Sharp, the blackmailed doctors struggle to uphold their own ethical codes (or lack thereof) in violent and confusing battlefields. And when one doctor goes rogue, the rest learn a terrifying lesson from Malady.

Doctors, having taken that well known oath, must treat even those that they are aware of being criminals. Now take that ethical dilemma and multiply it when that becomes having to help save lives of supervillains. For the doctors in the first issue of Medisin, this isn’t always a choice they can make blindly.

Ethan Sharp has a special talent, or a curse as he thinks of it, to process situations in his mind rapidly...

Infinite Seven #4

Lines have been drawn and war between the Infinite Seven and Chimera has been declared. The first arc in the hit series comes to an end, but one question remains: Who will draw FIRST BLOOD? This issue is chock full of revelations, and a shock ending that will leave readers reeling.

Well, now this is how you start off a comic and end the first arc with a cliffhanger. This series has kept my interest fairly well up until now, and this did a lot to strengthen it. Absolutely none of what happened in issue four of Infinite Seven was expected, and I love it.

Extracting data from Sandsnake’s system, Infinite Seven finds Chimera’s base and heads there to destroy them. The majority of the team goes right into fighting, while Anthony of course gets captured...

Hero Cats: Midnight Over Stellar City Vol 2 #1

The claws of justice are BACK! Midnight is forced to deal with the fallout of a prison break at the Taurus County Jail. Can Midnight corral the criminals so Stellar City can sleep safe and sound? With the help of fellow Hero Cat, Cassiopeia, they might just have a chance!

Hey look at that, he’s back! In black! (Sorry, that was just too good to pass up). In all seriousness though, while I can’t say I have a favorite Hero Cat, Midnight is certainly awesome. He’s so awesome that we now have the first issue of Hero Cats: Midnight Over Stellar City returning for a second volume.

When a prison break occurs involving above average villains, it’s up to Midnight to track them down...

Kill Shakespeare: Past is Prologue: Juliet #1

Juliet Lives! The newest chapter of the award-winning Kill Shakespeare series flashes back to five months after the death of Romeo, where Juliet is mourning yet another loved one – her mother. Now Juliet must discover who the murderer is, lest she becomes the next victim. New series artist Corin Howell (Transformers, The Mighty Zodiac, X-Files: Scully) takes the reins in a tale perfect for new readers to the series. (from IDW’s website)

In this alternate telling of what happens after Romeo and Juliet, Juliet lives and suffers alone after Romeo’s death. Juliet, presumably still the age she was in the original story, is self-absorbed and willful. She’s not immediately likable, exactly, but because the reader knows her story already, she’s at least relatable.

There are several nods to othe...

Red Sonja: The Long Walk To Oblivion

The people of Meru are in terrible danger from an ancient evil, and there is only one person who can save them — the Hyrkanian warrior woman, Red Sonja! A lone Meruvian is sent to find Sonja and bring her back east — a treacherous trip that ends in a trap laid by Sonja’s old enemy, the evil wizard Kulan Gath in Red Sonja #0! It’s the adventure set before the new hit series, in this extra-sized one-shot!

This book is a bit odd, because it’s supposed to be the prelude to Issue 0 of the new Red Sonja ongoing.

As you can see below, the page to the left is the end of Long Journey and the one on the right is the end of issue #0.  I call this book odd because Issue 0 came out in December and this book is coming out in May...
