Dollface #8+9

Lila’s battle comes to an emotional end in this horrific tale of Dollface.

Oh, but that’s not all folks, tell them what else they’ve won! Catching up in between these two arcs may not have been the best idea, especially with how gut wrenching the end was for issue eight. Issue nine of Dollface may not have had that emotional punch to the face, but it wasn’t exactly a ray of sunshine either.

With Emily being taken away from the fight, much to her frustration, Ivan returns to assist Lila who is clearly struggling against the rotund witch. She comes up with a great plan to bring Orla down from the inside, and her and Ivan successfully pull it off. You’d think this is where they celebrate another victory, right? Nope, here’s where your feels get walked all over and it’s really rough...

Bloodshot Salvation #1

Writer: Jeff Lemire
Artists: Lewis LaRosa & Mico Suayan
Colors: Brian Reber
Publisher: Valiant

After the fall of Project Rising Spirit, the killing machine Bloodshot is able to settle down and have a new start with his family as Ray Garrison. But forces are conspiring against him and his family that will cause him to take up the mantle of Blooshoot again.

I think my biggest problem with Valiant comics in general has to do with the set-up. It seems every new comic spins out of another, which in turn is part of a long and convoluted history that makes it hard for outsiders to be drawn in...

Zombie Tramp Vol 12 Issue #38+39

The battle begins as Xula and Janey go head to head in an epic showdown for survival and power.

What is it that they say, keep your friends close and your enemies closer? Well in this case, it appears that they are one in the same after all this time, much to the surprise of our undead lead role. I know that Janey is used to dealing with some crappy situations, but the one we see continue in issues 38 and 39 of Zombie Tramp is about the worse one yet.

If anyone was a little underwhelmed with the action in the last issue, then it’s more than made up for in these two. I have to say though, as much as I looked forward to this fight, it’s also a little sad to see Janey having to fight someone who’s the closest thing she’s had to a friend...

Taking place after B.J. Blazkowicz’s sacrifice at the end of Wolfenstein: The New Order, Wolfenstein #1 tells the story of a resistance group in America protecting those hunting by the Regime. The leader of the resistance, the Professor, encounters a member of the secret society Da’at Yuchid who tells her the story of how the Nazis discovered the mystic powers of Castle Wolfenstein.

Wolfenstein: The New Order was an incredible game, telling the story of an alternate history WWII where the Third Reich had won the war and ruled the world, but a resistance group led by the war hero William Blazkowicz in 1960 was starting to fight back...
