Ehmm Theory #1

Gabriel Ehmm has awoken to a world where zombie “little people”
rise from graves, someone calling himself “Saint Peter” offers bargains, and
his pet kitten can now “talk”.  Connected
by blood and straddling the afterlife, Gabe and Mr. Whispers (the aforementioned
talking cat) begin a universe-spanning adventure in the first issue of this
mind-bending and genre-blending new series.
Where does one even begin with a review on a book about
zombies, talking cats, and the afterlife unlike any seen before?  I suppose I’ll start off by saying that if
Ehmm Theory is any indication of what the new Action Lab “mature reader” line
is going to be like, I’m totally down with it. 
This comical horror is a great step away from all things superhero in
comics, and I for one welcom...

Ghost Town

They do
this for the people, to give them back the power.
In an
age where corruption and greed are the letter of the day for the U. S.
government, one group has taken it upon themselves to finally say enough is
enough.  They call themselves the
American Reclamation Front and they are willing to do whatever it takes to wipe
out the overwhelming influence of a government gone wrong.  Action Lab brings you Ghost Town: Ground
Zero, a thrilling new tale, from co-creator Dave Dwonch, of a revolution that was
started with a time machine.
the most politically driven comic I’ve ever read, or at least that was
blatantly obvious to me.  Ghost Town:
Ground Zero brings up a lot of what’s wrong with society today and comes up
with some rather bold solutions to these problems...

Pirate Eye Announcement

Last year, Joe Grahn and Carl Yonder’s unique take on the noir genre, “Pirate Eye” caught a lot of folks by surprise.  One thing is for certain though, as soon as it came out people were clamoring for more “pirate noir”.  Well, Joe and Carl are back and they are delivering another new adventure from Smitty, the pirate turned private eye with “Pirate Eye:  A Pirate’s Life is Not for Me”

Princeless Vol 2 Issue 2

Adrienne is hot on the trail of her older sister Angelica. But in order to save Angelica, Adrienne will have to face a real monster – jealousy. Meanwhile, another member of the royal family has disappeared and one of King Ashe’s closest allies may be to blame!

I normally don’t find myself feeling the need to start off talking about the cover of a book, but the front of Princeless Vol #2 is just too funny not to.  I won’t deny that books with risque covers draw me in, but I can also appreciate the argument being made on how relevant they actually are. Regardless of your stance on this though, I personally got a laugh out of this.

So, onto the book itself...
