Not Drunk Enough

Writer/Artist: Tessa Stone
Publisher: Oni Press

After a mad scientist unleashes mutated monstrosities in his lab, an unlikely group of friends and enemies will fight the monsters and each other while trying to stay alive and find the truth behind what happened.

Tessa Stone’s Not Drunk Enough is a Lovecraftian nightmare of grotesque imagery following an eccentric cast of anti-heroes, villains, and random people just trying to survive that balances a story of madness, loss, and betrayal with a dark, often hyperactive sense of humor.

The story follows Logan, a repairman who is called in with his partner Abrahm to deal with something at Varkira Labs, only to be attacked by shadowy creatures and knocked unconscious and saved by Malea, a security guard and the only person in the group with an...

Hero Cats: Midnight Over Stellar City Vol 2 #2

Dr. Ross Rex breaks out of the Taurus County Jail and our favorite Hero Cat must uncover his master plan.  Return with us to Stone City as Midnight, Cassiopeia, Belle, Eastly and his people prepare for the upcoming war.

If you told me years ago I’d be regularly enjoying books that feature a team of heroic cats I’d probably have laughed. Granted, there are far more bizarre things that could and have been pitched. Luckily the offshoot Hero Cats: Midnight Over Stellar City and issue two of its second volume is anything but.

One of the escaped villains, Dr Rex, shows up at the Quest home and creepily gets the nanny involved in his evil plot. Midnight, Cassiopeia and eventually Belle track him to his lair, learning of the plan to use the Echo Chamber for nefarious reasons...

Sombra

Written by Justin Jordan (The Strange Talent of Luther Strode) and illustrated by Raúl Treviño (Tinkers of the Wasteland), Sombra is a gripping exploration of the War on Drugs and the double-edged sword of American intervention, informed by Treviño’s experiences in his Mexican homeland. Conrad Marlowe was a respected DEA agent when he disappeared in Mexico while investigating the ruthless drug cartels. Years later, he has resurfaced as a cult leader who has made it his mission to out-brutalize the cartels terrorizing the country. The only DEA agent willing to follow his trail of violence is his own daughter, Danielle, and with the help of a journalist on the ground, she’ll have to face the horrors of what her father has become if she wants to survive and bring him to justice.

Zombie Tramp Origins #1

The impossible to find, long out of print original series, in full color for the first time! Revisit the powerful origin story that launched a modern cult classic as high priced Hollywood call girl, Janey Belle, gets set on her fateful path to become… Zombie Tramp! This is a remastered reprinting of the first series that was never before released in single issues to the direct market.

Ever since I saw this announced in Previews, I have been eagerly awaiting its release. Like the summary points out, unless you’re one of the extremely lucky few to own the original, it hasn’t been possible to read. Finally, the general public will get to see what started it all beginning with Zombie Tramp Origins issue one.

Before she was Zombie Tramp, Janey Belle was once the top dollar number one call g...

Blood Shot’s Day Off #1

Writer: Eliot Rahal
Artist: Khari Evans
Colors: Andrew Dalhouse
Publisher: Valiant

Two soldiers out of time, kept alive as part of a secret project that turned them into weapons of mass destruction, have finally earned a day off after decades of service.

There are two major problems I have with Valiant as a whole. It’s very confusing and unwelcoming to newcomers, and attempts to explain backstory come off as poorly written exposition dumps. It’s also all very silly, which in theory is fine, but it’s all played straight and there’s usually nothing to anchor it and for the most part, the silliness all gets to be too much. Blood Shot’s Day Off is needlessly confusing, and incredibly silly, but it does manage to find an emotional anchor that makes those two issues easier to deal wit...
