Tarzan on the Planet of the Apes #3

Issue #3 picks up in 1907 West Africa, where the Mangani Ape City of Ho-Wala is burning. The Mangani leader, Zira, stands firm against one of the monsters that have her home under siege. While the creature appears to be some kind of pterosaur it communicates with Zira telepathically, telling her that she has “seen the world to come” and has therefore “seen too much.”

Meanwhile Caesar’s group of Mangani and Tarzan’s landing party face a pack of raptor-esque dinosaurs in the jungle. While Tarzan and Caesar survive this encounter many of the others, Mangani and Human, do not.

The two brothers soon learn of their mother’s death, and set out to enact revenge...

Klaus and the Witch of Winter #1

Klaus returns for an epic oversized one-shot, perfect for any comic fan’s stocking! Brought to you by legendary creator Grant Morrison and 2016 Russ Manning Award winner Dan Mora, join the continuing adventures through space and time of the man that would become Santa Claus.

One of these days, I’ll eventually catch up on all the excellent titles that catch my eye that I feel like I should be reading. The main title for this book just happens to be one of them, and all too appropriately does this make it my way. Earlier this year I got to check out the Pen&Ink for the first couple issues, and now the one shot for Klaus and the Witch of Winter reminds me that I really need to get the whole series.

In this solo story for our buffed up Santa, he stumbles into the home of a man whose childr...

The Spire

At the Spire, a sprawling mountain of metal and stone in the middle of a radioactive desert, Shå, the Commander of the City Watch, is tasked with keeping the hodgepodge of forgotten technology and new biology safe. When a string of grisly murders is committed just as a new Baroness of the Spire is about to be sworn in, Shå will have to find the killer and bring them to justice.

Every once in a while, you’ll run across a series, grab a few issues and then not get any further. Sometimes it’s for lack of interest but in others you just simply don’t get the opportunity to continue on. After only getting the first two around the time of launch, now I get to finish The Spire with the full trade and see what I missed.

As Commander of the Watch for the high rising city of metal and stone called...
