Synopsis:  Cautionary tale meets twisted horror in this modern urban legend tale that begins with four friends — Richie, Ginny, Alexis, and Adam — traveling through Texas on their way to California for what is supposed to be a  Spring Break. When they stop to get gas they are told about another way to get to their destination by traveling down Route 66, as well as the Tale of the Phantom Toll Booth that leads travelers onto the road to Hell.

New Challengers #1

One of the more unusual promotional things that I remember from comics in my youth were these sealed plastic grab-bags of random titles. I was gifted several of these but I remember almost nothing more. Yet somehow I remember The Challengers of the Unknown. I don’t even remember if I read it, and I know I didn’t have any more than the one issue. But I still remember that hourglass.

Now there’s a New Challengers, and despite my overall apathy towards many of DC’s bigger titles I really enjoyed this one. The story begins on a plane, in a storm, somewhere in the Himalayas, “then”. There’s a crazy guy covered in bandages, a glowing something, and the plane gets crashed. That’s all I really got from the prologue.

Badassical #3

Susan, Kate and Pandora are trapped in a futuristic reality television show on a city wide scale. There’s evil ninjas, giant robots and liberal amounts of awesome.

Issue one had the three dealing with the loss of a super-science device to the bad guys, and issue two saw Susan facing off against a giant robot.

This is where we pick up.

Pardon me while I shake the rust off and poke my head in briefly for a review on a comic that I personally adore quite a bit. We’ve been together on this crazy ride since early on and look forward to staying on the roller coaster as it continues to barrel forward. Put your hands in the air if you dare, but I might suggest holding on for issue three of Badassical.

Following the events leading up to this point, we rejoin Kate and Susan as they begin their next...

Why are we spotlighting a book that’s already funded and so close to completion? Because we love the message of this book. Because we love that the creators believe in it so much that they donated copies of issue #0 to charity. Because it’s awesome, even if they did use dialog instead of dialogue in their write up. (Personal pet peeve, don’t hold it against them....
