Austin in Review : The Bakery Connection

As some of you may have read, we here at Geek-o-Rama tried something new for our last convention. We hooked up with a local bakery to bring goodies to our friends who were working their hearts out down at the convention center. As part of that partnership/trying something new, we decided to make sure that we told you how it all worked out and whether or not this is something that we’ll try to do for future events.

So, how did it work out? It was a learning experience, for sure. There were moments when I wondered if I had been out of my mind to try to add one more thing into the busiest day of the con, but we made it work in the end...

Unseen Justice

Welcome to my first serious look at comics in more years than I care to recall.

First off, I quickly realised that I’m not the target audience. Unseen Justice is a look inside the harsh realities of El Malvado, a fictional American corrections facility, through the eyes of former Marine Sniper, now Corrections Officer (CO) Wyatt Stone. It’s definitely aimed at those with a stance somewhat to the right of centre and definitely graphic enough that parents should read through before turning over to their kids. Some geographic details appear to be either accidentally or deliberately wrong or misleading, but that may be explained in future issues.

CO Stone has some issues, let’s be clear about that...

Pirate Eye

Join ex-pirate and now high-seas detective Smitty as he searches for a beautiful yet elusive lass who has stolen the heart of an influential politician. But can he find her before her deadly secret is discovered? Blimey!

The Good: I don’t know where to start. It’s been a while since I read a book that  I honestly wanted to re-read the second I finished reading it the first time. This is one of those books. The story line is fantastic. The art is gritty and dark and maybe a bit noir. It fits the story in such a way that rarely comes along.

The Bad: This book won’t be available on store shelves until December. That’s right, we got a sneak peek!

The Summary: Run, don’t walk to your local comic book store and pre-order your copy of this book. I mean it. You won’t regret it...
