House Amok #1

Writer: Christopher Sebela

Artist: Shawn McManus

Letterer: Aditya Bidikar

Publisher: Idea and Designs Works

Synopsis: 10 year old Dylan Sandifer is a fraternal twin with a close knit family. They enjoy spending time together, playing games, and going on road trips. Christopher Sebela sums it up by stating, “The Sandifers are experiencing a mental condition known as folie a deux, a shared madness that will drive them to kidnap and torture strangers, burn down secret safe houses, and do whatever it takes to stay alive.”

Only Dylan has snapped out of the delusion. She reflects on the horror of what her family has become. Now, she needs to make a decision.

Review: The artwork in House Amuck is blocky, somewhat two dimensional, and has an old school style...

The Long Con #1

THE WORLD IS OVER…

BUT THE CON HAS JUST BEGUN.

Five years ago, a cataclysmic event obliterated everything within a fifty mile radius of the Los Spinoza Convention Center — including the attendees of Long Con, the world’s biggest (and longest) comic convention.

But unknown to the outside world, the con-goers not only survived, they kept the convention going.

When proof of their survival surfaces, reporter Victor Lai is sent to investigate. After all, he was covering the con that fateful day, and escaped mere minutes before everything went kablooie… abandoning his nerdy pal Dez in the process.

So clearly he’s the perfect person for the job, and he won’t get trapped inside like some kinda idiot.

Right?

Euthanauts #1

Writer: Tini Howard
Artist: Nick Robles
Letters: Aditya Bidikar
Publisher: IDW

There was something special about the woman at the restaurant. Thalia did not know what it was, other than that she was obviously terminally ill, but that wasn’t it. No, there was something more to it, but Thalia could not put her finger on it. When Mercy Wolfe followed her into the restaurant bathroom, Thalia had no idea her whole world was about to change.

Black Crown’s inaugural issue of Euthanauts is a visual masterpiece right from the beginning. Nick Robles’s art is sharp and on point, delivering a tone of brilliant contrast from the start.

Ruin of Thieves: A Brigand’s Story #1


Writer: Ram V

Artist: Sumit Kumar, ROSH

Letterer: Aditya Bidikar

Publisher: Action Lab Comics

Synopsis: Released from Death Row into the service of the Temarian Inquisition, the Brigands, led by Stilian “Blackheart” Desault, are expected to steal The Myros Pendulum. On the night of the Myros Comet, the heroes find themselves trying to keep their heads low and hope they can continue on their quest without getting caught.

Review: If  Ruin of Thieves: A Brigands Story was a movie, it would begin with a Star Wars  type of introduction. This one page introduction to the graphic novel sets the stage for the adventure that is to follow. With the feeling and look of a fantasy sword and dagger type of movie, the story will be a thrill to those who love reading fantasy novels...
