Project : Shadows #2

THE YEAR: 2050. WAR has ravaged the world and more
specifically, America. At the heart of nuclear destruction and everything that
led up to it is the new evolution of man: super powered beings called SHADOWS,
who are government-created, controlled and unrelentingly sought after by ALL
nations. 
SAMANTHA, a VERY POWERFUL Shadow, has decided that she wants nothing
to do with any of it and is trying to just live out her life in a mostly
post-apocalyptic world. She soon finds herself caught between a government that
has only brought her ruin and a rebel faction of Shadows that wants to change
the balance of power. What is a girl to do? Is it really possible to be neutral
despite the fact that EVIL WILL TRIUMPH WHEN GOOD PEOPLE DO NOTHING?
There was no Kickstarter contribution to add t...

Grimm Fairy Tales: Different Seasons Vol. 3

 Merriment and mischief continue in this third volume of
holiday one-shots from Zenescope Entertainment. 
Here you’ll find tales of danger, deceit and the uncouth effects of
greed, as well as an epic volleyball game. 
Written by the likes of Ralph Tedesco, Joe Brusha and Raven Gregory,
this is certainly not one to be missing from your collection.  With that said, there are quite a few issues
to cover this time around, so let’s get this review going.
This volume collects the 2010 Halloween and Holiday
Specials, as well as the 2013 Valentine’s and St. Patrick’s one-shots and the
2012 Swimsuit Special.  Now, not entirely
certainly sure how all these fit together story-wise, but I’m sure it’s just a
matter of putting together what was available and not overloading this volume

Ten Grand … And Worth Every Cent!

If
you’re in trouble with the wrong people, especially people with a connection to
dark forces, go to the worst part of town, to places no one would enter in
their right mind. Ask for Joe.  He will
help you. He will save you. Even if it kills him … Especially if it kills him.
So goes the introduction to the newest offering from J.
Michael Straczynski and his newest venture, Joe’s Comics.  The story is compelling, a former private eye
who was killed by a demonic force along with his wife.  Facing eternal separation, she in heaven, he
in hell, he is offered a chance at resurrection on the condition that he works
against the forces of darkness on the mortal plane.  Now he works as a paranormal enforcer for
people who run into trouble with dark powers. 
His price?  Ten grand.

C2E2 Con Recap – Day 1

Oh what a con! Wouldn’t that be the teaser of a lifetime? I could just say that and leave you to wonder what I mean…but you guys know me and know that I love to tell you about amazing, so amazing, here we come!

Any con always starts out with travel and C2E2 is no exception! This year, my con weekend started out at 4:15am (Chicago time) on Friday. My things were already in the van, so it was get up, get dressed and head out the door. Traffic was good, with the usual Chicago hangups and I actually managed to make it to O’hare an hour ahead of schedule. I know you’re wondering why the heck I went to O’Hare when the convention center isn’t anywhere near there. Simple, my friends. Parking. Parking is way, way cheaper there than at any of the hotels...
