Divinity #0

Writer: Matt Kindt
Artist: Renato Guedes
Publisher: Valiant

In the 1960’s, Abram, a Soviet Astronaut, was launched into space, and years later returned with incredible powers. After thwarting the plans of one of his friends to create a mass hallucination in which Russia rules the world, he checks in on those who remain from the hallucination world seeming due to an anomaly of time and space.

Divinity starts off strong, with Abram reflecting on the sense of wonder and adventure he used to get from reading comic books as a child. How the world was simpler and seemed to stand still. It’s a little cliche, yes, but it’s earnest and heartfelt, and paired with Renato Guedes’ beautiful watercolor illustrations, it transcends cliche and is actually quite touching… for the first few pages...

Batman: The Enemy Within – Episode One: The Enigma

Written by: James Windeler, Patrick Kevin Day & Shanon Ingles
Directed by: Kent Mudle

One year after Batman stopped Penguin, Two-Face, Lady Arkham, and the Children of Arkham in the first season of Batman: The Telltale Series, Gotham is now safer than it’s ever been thanks to Batman and Gotham’s new police commissioner, Jim Gordon. But when Gotham’s original masked criminal, The Riddler, returns, Batman is pushed to his limits to save the city once again.

The first season of Telltale’s Batman series left me cold. It had potential but felt hollow. It had interesting original villains, and new takes on old ones, but ultimately felt bloated juggling Penguin, Two-Face, and the new Lady Arkham. As a whole, it was good but marred by problems big and small...

Robotech #1

Not just another retelling of the Macross saga … In July, the story continues as we bring Carl Macek’s original vision full circle. Taking into account every iteration of the series, this new Robotech #1 casts a fresh eye over classic characters like Rick Hunter, Lisa Hayes, Lynn Minmei, Roy Fokker, Claudia Grant, and Henry Gloval. Brian Wood and Marco Turini take us back to a Macross Island where *nothing* can be taken for granted.

There is a wide variety of anime categories out there that people gravitate towards, and I’d have to say mecha is one of the bigger ones. I certainly enjoy mecha shows, mostly because I just love robots in general. It’s been a while since I’ve touched anything Robotech, so I was actually quite excited to check out issue one of this new comic incarnation.

Zombie Tramp Vol 12 Issue #37

A special 3 year anniversary issue featuring story and art by series creator Dan Mendoza. Featuring. The. Most. Shocking. Revelation. Yet!

It’s finally here after what seems like an eternity of building up to this pivotal moment in the series. Unfortunately, it’s not a happy moment that we’ve been waiting all this time for either. Then again, how often does that happen, so why should the thirty-seventh issue of Zombie Tramp be any different?

To start off this arc, the majority of this issue was actually pretty low key and not much even happened until the very end. We start off with Janey tormenting her former pimp, again, so that’s old at this point. But, the road trip takes us back to the very beginning, the last place Janey was normal before she was turned into whatever she is now...
