Stray Ongoing #1

Writer: Vito Delsante
Artist: Sean Izaakse, Lee Gaston
Colors: Chris O’Halloran, Wilson Ramos Jr.
Publisher: Action Lab

*insert generic superhero story here*

Stray Ongoing #1 (or maybe Actionverse #1 ? It’s more than a little confusing) seems to be a reboot of sorts for what is referred to in an editor’s note as the “Classic Actionverse”. The events leading up to this comic are recapped in a long, complicated, essentially meaningless synopsis at the beginning. The Stray a.k.a Discount Batman encounters someone from his past and flashes back to when he joined Discount Teen Titans.

It’s… really as generic and uninteresting as it sounds. Completely by the numbers, with no hint of originality in the characters, dialogue, artstyle, world-building, or anything else...

Hero Cats of Skyworld #18

Bandit and the Hero Cats of Skyworld are in for the fight of their lives as they confront the Crow King and his wretched warriors. It’s time to storm the castle in this all out action packed issue.

If ever there was a time that I could have started off a review sounding like a D&D night, it’d be a book like this. Amusingly enough, it just happened to be another Action Lab book that I did that with recently. But, enough of that mostly irrelevant nonsense, let us now move onto talking about issue eighteen of Hero Cats of Skyworld.

With Bandit working together with this world’s own Hero Cats team, after training for months, they finally proceed with their plan. He and each of the cats in his temporary new team do their part based on the various abilities to set up for the ultimate goal...

Vampblade Season 2 #5

After team Vampblade’s first mission goes decidedly not to plan, it’s back to basics. Katie must learn to control her new relationship with the blades… while also keeping the comic shop afloat in today’s tricky market!

You suddenly find yourself transported to what appears to be another planet or possibly even another dimension. Wait, this isn’t the beginning of an RPG campaign, is it? This would certainly make for a crazy setting to have one though. However, this is actually Vampblade issue five of its second season and not a D&D night.

We interrupt this this regularly broadcast from Earth comic for this jump to…somewhere? At least 90% of the time anyways, where we see Katie in “Blade World”, potentially where the sentient being of the Blades is from...

Tomboy #12

After losing everything she wanted to protect, Addison decides the fate of both her own future and that of the city, as Iris steps up to stop her. The shocking series conclusion.

This moment has been a long time coming and my anticipation for it was about as high as it gets. When it comes to this series, a number of choice words to describe it immediately come to mind. Intense. Unexpected. Amazing. I could probably go on but you probably get the point and hopefully even know for yourself. If you don’t, with this twelfth and final issue of Tomboy now out, you should absolutely make the effort to do so.

All the players, at least those that are left, have entered the field for the big showdown. I’d have said final showdown, but the writers were smart enough to leave the ending just open en...
