Action Lab Dog of Wonder #7

WHO is this canine from the future? WHEN in the past has he taken Percy? WHAT is going on here?! It’s a story that could only be called…BARK TO THE FUTURE! And this is just Part One!

It’s funny that that last time I read this title, I was starting a new arc. Sadly, I lost track of it and never finished, but come back in just in time for the next. So, let’s see what’s going on with Action Lab Dog of Wonder in the seventh issue and the Bark to the Future arc.

During a puppy rescue mission, Action Lab is suddenly met by a time traveling, very Whovian parody dog named Toby. The pair travel back to 1792, when the League of Animals was formed, an event someone is trying to stop...

Groo: Fray of the Gods TPB

What happens when you put artist Sergio Aragonés and writer Mark Evanier together, then toss in some letters by Stan Sakai, and colour it with some Tom Luth? What you get is the longest running creative team around, and probably another wandering tale of Groo. In today’s case, it’s Groo: Fray of the Gods.

Fray of the Gods was originally announced by Dark Horse as a 12 issue limited series, with the first issue being advertised as such, and the preorders for the TPB collection of the first four issues being advertised as Volume 1. Somewhere the plan changed slightly, and the story concluded with issue #4.

The Comixology description of issue #4 starts:

“It’s the last issue of a four-issue Groo miniseries, and we all know what that leads to: the first issue (coming soon) of the next fou...

Medisin #1

Criminal mastermind Malady has recruited a team of down on their luck physicians to provide medical aid for the world’s worst bad guys. Led by the brilliant Ethan Sharp, the blackmailed doctors struggle to uphold their own ethical codes (or lack thereof) in violent and confusing battlefields. And when one doctor goes rogue, the rest learn a terrifying lesson from Malady.

Doctors, having taken that well known oath, must treat even those that they are aware of being criminals. Now take that ethical dilemma and multiply it when that becomes having to help save lives of supervillains. For the doctors in the first issue of Medisin, this isn’t always a choice they can make blindly.

Ethan Sharp has a special talent, or a curse as he thinks of it, to process situations in his mind rapidly...

Infinite Seven #4

Lines have been drawn and war between the Infinite Seven and Chimera has been declared. The first arc in the hit series comes to an end, but one question remains: Who will draw FIRST BLOOD? This issue is chock full of revelations, and a shock ending that will leave readers reeling.

Well, now this is how you start off a comic and end the first arc with a cliffhanger. This series has kept my interest fairly well up until now, and this did a lot to strengthen it. Absolutely none of what happened in issue four of Infinite Seven was expected, and I love it.

Extracting data from Sandsnake’s system, Infinite Seven finds Chimera’s base and heads there to destroy them. The majority of the team goes right into fighting, while Anthony of course gets captured...
