Zombie Tramp Vol 11 Issue #34

Xula continues her tests and obstacles to prove her worthiness to Kaiju Queen. But will she accept her final challenge?

Power is sometimes a terrible thing to seek out, especially as it is rarely ever shared. Some would go to any length to have it, even if it meant betraying those closest to them. In the thirty-fourth issue of Zombie Tramp, we continue Xula’s journey towards power and what it may cost.

Breezing past the first two challenges, Xula faces the third in a powerful demon, eventually taking him out after a brief struggle. She makes her way to the dagger, but also runs into another demon who has her questioning her worth to the Kaiju Queen. Upon returning with the blade, it is then that Xula learns the reason she recovered it was to kill Janey in order to take her power.

Neon Genesis Evangelion: Legend of the Piko Piko Middle School Students Vol 1

Mysterious invaders are threatening Earth . . . so recruit a group of elite school kids to play video games that secretly train them for the real fight that lies ahead! Does this plan sound familiar? Well, they’d better get a new plan, because the elite school kids are Shinji, Rei, Asuka, and Kaworu, and they’re too busy playing games to ever get in the fricking robot!

Ok, you managed to get this far after that mouthful of a title, so congratulations. Now, if you’re looking for more of the serious Eva content you’d expect, this isn’t it.

Rise of the Black Flame

The BPRD’s greatest foe was not always a man . . .

Little English girls are going missing, and the trail leads to a bloodthirsty cult wielding an ancient power of evil—the Cult of the Black Flame.

No villain in the history of Mike Mignola’s line of books has caused as much death and destruction as the Black Flame. See what it was like when that power belonged to a secret order of priests hidden in the jungles of Siam.

To this day a part of me always feels a little hesitant when I go into a book related to anything related to Hellboy. There’s so much background info I’m losing out on not having read anything from the core series. Even so, I broke open the trade for Rise of the Black Flame in hopes I would enjoy it regardless.

Set during the early 20th century in Siam, the growing di...
