Sleepy Hollow #2 and #3

Craig Marsters only wanted to do the right thing, too bad Brian Aston doesn’t see it that way.  When a college prank goes too far Brian and his other teammates vow to keep silent about the whole ordeal.  Guilt and fear begin to consume them as tales of revenge percolate about campus.  Soon, Brian, Ty and their friends will discover that the Headless Horseman is more than just a legend.

So, Craig Marsters has met his fate and at the hands of someone he trusted no less, all because he stood up for what he believed was right.  He had a good head on his shoulders.  Now, Brian, Ty and their teammates have awakened the spirit of vengeance (no, I don’t mean Ghost Rider) and they’re going to learn the hard way about the true meaning of revenge...

Love it or hate it, why people should shut up about Big Bang Theory being “offensive to nerds”

This entry just might be the closest thing to “inflammatory” I’ve written.

Let’s get this out right now: I love the Big Bang Theory. Most of my “nerd” friends love the show. It’s a show.  All of us have the good sense to suspend our disbelief and disassociate ourselves from the exaggerated characters, because at the end of the day, they are exactly that: caricatures.  When I was growing up in a standard middle class family, we didn’t bitch about “Rosanne’s” white-trashiness.  I didn’t hear about talk radio personalities or psychiatrists raving about the neurosis of “Doctors Frasier and Niles Crane”.  No journalists were ranting about “questioning journalistic integrity” of Murphy Brown and the crew at FYI: we still embraced the characters. Quirks and all...

Sanctuary #4

The penultimate issue of Stephen Coughlin’s Sanctuary arrives and finds us on the cusp of both new discoveries and big revelations about the island habitat and the people and creatures that inhabit it.

The Good
We get launched right into Issue 4 of Sanctuary directly where the third one left off, and it really never stops.  This chapter is probably the most exciting so far, and pulls absolutely no punches.  I never thought I’d be so involved with the lives of both the animals and people, but you can’t help but be curious about these interesting characters.

The Bad
Even at the fourth issue, I’m hard pressed to find glaring problems that lessen the quality of this great book.

The Summary
Just when I thought things couldn’t get any crazier, I am proven wrong...

Princeless Vol. 2 Issue #1

The princess who ran away is back along with her new friend, Bedelia the girl blacksmith and her loyal guardian dragon Sparky. Now that Adrienne has escaped, she has her eyes set on freeing her sisters. First up is the most beautiful girl in all the kingdom, Angelica.

However, things will not be easy for our heroines as the King believes Adrienne is dead and has put a bounty on her killer: Adrienne.

The Good
Everything that got me to love Princeless in the first collection is just as prevalent in the first issue of volume 2.  We even get some additional characters to start things off with even more bang. The adventures of our main characters are really starting to kick in, and we continue to get great writing and art to take us along on the journey.

The Bad
The change in artwork caught m...
