Kill The Minotaur #1

Athens lost the war to Crete. Now, they pay tribute to King Minos by sacrificing their best citizens to his unearthly labyrinth. Conspirators believe Theseus can be the hero they need to end the mad king’s bloody reign…but no one on this world has ever encountered anything like the savage minotaur.

There is such a large amount of interesting mythological stories to come out of ancient civilizations across the globe. Some are certainly more well known than others, like that of the minotaur for instance. In the first issue of Kill the Minotaur, we begin a new take on this iconic Greek creature.

Following the loss in a war with Crete, Athens must regularly pay tribute by sacrificing citizens to King Minos...

The Art of Prey

A dark force is tormenting Talos I, and survival depends as much on wit as strength. Now, journey alongside Morgan Yu to discover the mysteries within Prey. Arkane Studios and Dark Horse Books are proud to present a comprehensive collection of art from the development of this long-awaited and hotly anticipated game!

This is one of those games that I both have and haven’t been interested in playing. It looks amazing from the trailers, but it also looks like it will scare the bejeezus out of me. For the time being, I think I’ll just spend some time checking out The Art of Prey and save the game for another day.

Nearly half of the pages in this book is comprised of content focusing on the environment in and around the setting, Talos I...

All-New Fathom Vol. 6 #5

After exposing a traitor with designs on toppling the Elite Blue Council, Aspen and Tyler are taken hostage! Meanwhile, the deadly Typhos – once rudderless and erratic – are invigorated with new purpose: overthrow the Blue capitol city of Muria!

The more of this title I get the chance to read, the more I wish I had kept up with previous content. Luckily, this newest volume is a pretty good place to get back in without feeling totally lost. Hopefully, I can keep up with this one better continuing on with issue five of Fathom.

Having been captured by the traitorous Cannon, Aspen and Tyler are at his mercy as his plot continues. Or perhaps not, as Aspen’s YooToob video contained a hidden message for her boyfriend, Chance...

Judge Dredd: Complete Case Files 05

Writer: John Wagner
Artists: Will Simpson, Carlos Ezquerra, John Anderson
Publisher: 2000 AD

As Judge Dredd gets older, he begins the question the morality of taking away freedom from people, of a society controlled by the few that punishes crime to the extreme. Those in Control know his thoughts, and before Dredd retires, they have him train a clone of himself. With Dredd gone, can his clone protect Mega City One, or will the city fall apart without the legendary Judge there to dispense justice?

I’m going to be completely honest here, going into this collection, I knew almost nothing of Judge Dredd. I knew the name and I knew the costume, but I’ve never read or watched anything involving him. I didn’t know what he was about or what he did...
