The Power of the Dark Crystal #3

The return of the Skeksis kicks Jen out of a daze and back on the offensive in the name of Thra. Meanwhile, Kensho and Thurm look to escape the Crystal Castle unnoticed.

While my excitement wasn’t so much surprise this time, I was still very much excited to read this book. Had I known what would happen in this issue though, it may have had a bit of worry. Either way, picking up The Power of the Dark Crystal issue three was something I was more than eager to do.

In hopes of saving her world, Thurma has cause the Crystal to once again be broken, and the Skeksis have returned. They waste no time spreading terror as they did before, and in the chaos, the shard is almost lost. Thurma manages to find it taken by a creature undeground, running into Kensho as well...

Action Lab Dog of Wonder #7

WHO is this canine from the future? WHEN in the past has he taken Percy? WHAT is going on here?! It’s a story that could only be called…BARK TO THE FUTURE! And this is just Part One!

It’s funny that that last time I read this title, I was starting a new arc. Sadly, I lost track of it and never finished, but come back in just in time for the next. So, let’s see what’s going on with Action Lab Dog of Wonder in the seventh issue and the Bark to the Future arc.

During a puppy rescue mission, Action Lab is suddenly met by a time traveling, very Whovian parody dog named Toby. The pair travel back to 1792, when the League of Animals was formed, an event someone is trying to stop...

Medisin #1

Criminal mastermind Malady has recruited a team of down on their luck physicians to provide medical aid for the world’s worst bad guys. Led by the brilliant Ethan Sharp, the blackmailed doctors struggle to uphold their own ethical codes (or lack thereof) in violent and confusing battlefields. And when one doctor goes rogue, the rest learn a terrifying lesson from Malady.

Doctors, having taken that well known oath, must treat even those that they are aware of being criminals. Now take that ethical dilemma and multiply it when that becomes having to help save lives of supervillains. For the doctors in the first issue of Medisin, this isn’t always a choice they can make blindly.

Ethan Sharp has a special talent, or a curse as he thinks of it, to process situations in his mind rapidly...

Infinite Seven #4

Lines have been drawn and war between the Infinite Seven and Chimera has been declared. The first arc in the hit series comes to an end, but one question remains: Who will draw FIRST BLOOD? This issue is chock full of revelations, and a shock ending that will leave readers reeling.

Well, now this is how you start off a comic and end the first arc with a cliffhanger. This series has kept my interest fairly well up until now, and this did a lot to strengthen it. Absolutely none of what happened in issue four of Infinite Seven was expected, and I love it.

Extracting data from Sandsnake’s system, Infinite Seven finds Chimera’s base and heads there to destroy them. The majority of the team goes right into fighting, while Anthony of course gets captured...
