Hero Cats: Midnight Over Stellar City Vol 2 #2

Dr. Ross Rex breaks out of the Taurus County Jail and our favorite Hero Cat must uncover his master plan.  Return with us to Stone City as Midnight, Cassiopeia, Belle, Eastly and his people prepare for the upcoming war.

If you told me years ago I’d be regularly enjoying books that feature a team of heroic cats I’d probably have laughed. Granted, there are far more bizarre things that could and have been pitched. Luckily the offshoot Hero Cats: Midnight Over Stellar City and issue two of its second volume is anything but.

One of the escaped villains, Dr Rex, shows up at the Quest home and creepily gets the nanny involved in his evil plot. Midnight, Cassiopeia and eventually Belle track him to his lair, learning of the plan to use the Echo Chamber for nefarious reasons...

Sombra

Written by Justin Jordan (The Strange Talent of Luther Strode) and illustrated by Raúl Treviño (Tinkers of the Wasteland), Sombra is a gripping exploration of the War on Drugs and the double-edged sword of American intervention, informed by Treviño’s experiences in his Mexican homeland. Conrad Marlowe was a respected DEA agent when he disappeared in Mexico while investigating the ruthless drug cartels. Years later, he has resurfaced as a cult leader who has made it his mission to out-brutalize the cartels terrorizing the country.

Zombie Tramp Origins #1

The impossible to find, long out of print original series, in full color for the first time! Revisit the powerful origin story that launched a modern cult classic as high priced Hollywood call girl, Janey Belle, gets set on her fateful path to become… Zombie Tramp! This is a remastered reprinting of the first series that was never before released in single issues to the direct market.

Ever since I saw this announced in Previews, I have been eagerly awaiting its release. Like the summary points out, unless you’re one of the extremely lucky few to own the original, it hasn’t been possible to read. Finally, the general public will get to see what started it all beginning with Zombie Tramp Origins issue one.

Before she was Zombie Tramp, Janey Belle was once the top dollar number one call g...

Lola XOXO Vol 2 #1

The best-selling Aspen series from creator Siya Oum returns! In the epic first volume, the tough-minded Lola learned the brutal reality of the apocalypse within the confines of the ruthless Wasteland Trading Company led by the treacherous Edgar and his posse! However, the true challenge lies ahead, as her desire to be reunited with her lost parents still burns greater than ever!

I know that I can’t keep up with every comic I come across, but this one surprises me. Not only is it a post-apocalyptic title, but it’s also from a creator I like a lot. Whatever reasons aside, I was more than happy to open up the first issue in volume two of Lola XOXO.

Since the first volume, Lola has moved onto a free life with a band of fellow escapees, albeit with bounties on their heads...

The Black Sinister

A pitch-black tale of a city that lives in fear—not of crime or gangs, but the billionaire vigilante sworn to protect them.

Emerson Black’s superhero identity is no secret: patrolling the night skies as the Black Sinister, he enforces his own brand of psychotic justice, no matter the cost. Joined by his unhinged butler Danby, Emerson protects the citizens of Coal City from kidnappers, gangs, and jaywalkers alike. But who will protect the city from the Black Sinister? And what happens when the mayor hatches a plan to finally rid Coal City of its deranged antihero?

Compared to a lot of hardcore comic fans, I can’t say that I read a lot of comics, but I do read a good amount. From time to time there’s going to be a comic you aren’t a fan of, but could be great for others...
