Spencer & Locke #3

S.O.S.! S.O.S.! Beaten, drugged and left for dead, things are looking bad for Locke—but unfortunately for his captors, Locke isn’t here anymore. Get ready for a night of psychedelic terror and homicidal violence as Rocketman Reynolds makes his daring escape from Planet X!

Whatever you do, try not to let the somewhat confusing summary of this issue get in the way. Believe me, it makes all the sense in the world when you’re reading it and it’s quite fantastic. Pretty much everything up to and including the third issue of Spencer & Locke has been, so it’s only natural it would continue.

Waking up and finding himself the experiment of a mad doctor, Locke nearly dies but instead begins a drug induced escape adventure...

Hero Cats of Skyworld #17

Locked away with a Brain, an Athlete, a Basket Case, and a Princess.  It’s detention time for Bandit.  The Hero Cats of Skyworld meet for the first time!

Ok, this time I don’t feel like I’ve suddenly come out of some comic wormhole and trying to get my bearings. After getting adjusted to this brand new environment in the last issue, I was actually looking forward to seeing what happens next. So, why don’t we do that and get into issue seventeen with our Hero Cats of Skyworld.

Quite unlike him, Bandit finds himself captured in this new world and his fellow prisoners are the homegrown Hero Cats. Doing his best to explain the events involving the Crow King on Earth, he also tries to convince this band of cats to fight back here, in Skyworld...

Tomboy #11

Warren lures Irene to the courthouse determined to find out what happened to his daughter, Jessica. Irene isn’t impressed with the trap he’s set for her, however, as Fate pulls all the major players together for one last showdown.

I never quite know how to feel knowing that a series is coming to an end, especially one I’ve really enjoyed. It’s certainly exciting to see what it all comes down to, but obviously it’s sad to see it conclude. With just one more left, we see how Tomboy is prepping for the finale in issue eleven.

At the courthouse, Irene gives Warren a lengthy history on The Branch and her weaving of Fate over the years, although the tale is actually directed at Addison. Meanwhile, Addi’s grandfather runs interference when her father Mark arrives so she can finish the job...

Kid Sherlock #1

John Watson doesn’t feel like he really fits in as the new student at Baker Elementary. If it wasn’t bad enough being the only dog, it seems he has already gained the attention of the class bully, Kyle. Out in the play yard, Watson feels even more alone until he meets a young boy named Sherlock Holmes. While quite clever, Sherlock is often so lost in his own thoughts that he is oblivious to the people around him. However, when Watson shows an interest in Sherlock’s work it sparks the beginning of an adventure Sherlock never expected: friendship. Their first mission, identify the bad smell that has been afflicting their classroom.

Some characters throughout fiction find themselves the object of many a reimagining or retelling...

Dollface #5

Now that Ivan has perfected his Witch Positioning System (WPS), the gang take off to sunny Southern California to track down the next witch on their list. Be sure to check out this nightmarish 2nd story arc of DollFace: Tales of the Ball Jointed Witch Hunter!

My overwhelming excitement for getting this next issue was fueled by two main factors, one being the book itself of course. Admittedly, I was just as anxious to get my hands on the variant covers that wonderful artist and good friend Collette Turner did. Getting back to reason one, let’s get into the actual reading of the content for issue five of Dollface.

As a ghost, Ivan has become quite useful, with things like his Black Room and teleportation ability...
