Lawless: Welcome to Badrock TPB

The backwater planet of 43 Rega has spent five years recovering from an invasion of aliens known as the Zhind. isolated and a hotbed for trouble makers, Badrock is an colony township desperate for a strong law enforcer to take charge. Enter Colonial. Marshal Meta Lawson. Tough, surly and determined, Lawson seems to be ideal for the role. But is this law-woman exactly who she claims to be…?

God, I loved this comic.

Lawless, set in the Judge Dredd universe, is drawn entirely in the stark black and whites of classic 2000AD titles, a look that could go head-to-head with any color comic and come out looking a million times better. The writing is absolutely top-notch, managing to maintain a straight face without sacrificing its goofy sense of humor. Marshal Lawless is a true badass...

The Courier #1+2

In 2033 less than 1% of the population survived a devastating pandemic virus. Half of those who lived were immune while half of the survivors mutated into something disturbingly subhuman. Now decades later, the world has rebuilt in many ways but has become something else entirely. Strongholds of human survivors have been set up independently of one another across parts of what is formerly the United States. The rich live in highly guarded Utopias where technology and even an economy has been restored. However, the vast “wasteland” between strongholds is a very dangerous and unforgiving place where the poor are forced to live in areas where gangs, pirates and the mutated roam free...

Sky Doll: Sudra #1+2

In a parallel universe, the existence of a sweet, life-like android called Noa, a Sky Doll, has been turned upside down. After fleeing her tyrannical creator and fleeing to the far reaches of the galaxy to the planet Sudra, Noa cannot seem to escape her past! While she uses her mysterious healing powers to thrill the Sudra public, she is plagued by visions of the dead papesse Agape! Could this planet be even more revealing that its paradisiacal façade?

Sky Doll: Sudra is both gorgeous and bonkers in the very best way.

The art is unbelievable. I can’t imagine how many hours of digital painting went into each panel. The characters, which appear to be vaguely cat-like things, blend Disney cartoons with a dash of Manga and suffuse it with indefinable Frenchness...

Rose #1

A classic fantasy tale about a girl trying to restore balance to a broken world. Rose must connect with her Khat—Thorne—to become the Guardian the world needs. But things aren’t easy for Rose and Thorne, the powerful sorcerous Drucilla has many powerful and demonic allies—all of them focused on stopping one scared little girl who’s desperately trying to stay alive and do what’s right. Written by MEREDITH FINCH (Wonder Woman, Little Mermaid), and drawn by fan-favorite artist IG GUARA (Batman: Arkham Knight, Blue Beetle, The Ravagers).

So let’s get this out of the way: Rose apparently has nothing to do with Jeff Smith’s Bone. This was my first assumption, seeing as the names “Rose” and “Thorn” are pretty unequivocally linked to Mr. Smith’s series. There is a Bone p...

Zombie Tramp Easter Special

Of all the holidays that a lot of people gather on, Easter is one that’s just kind of another day to me. That in no way is an offense to those that it’s important to, to each their own. With the Zombie Tramp Easter Special out now, I can at least celebrate having another holiday issue with Janey.

While out and about, Janey learns of a “Bunnyland” Easter celebration and decides to attend donning a very Playboy bunny-esque costume. These festivities turn out to be some sort of bizarre cult gathering, complete with cannibalism and bunny suit orgy. Ya. After somehow being susceptible to hypnotizing from the leader, Janey’s patience runs out and ends the party with traditional death and destruction.

Generally, the artwork here is another fun collection of the Zombie Tramp visuals we all enjoy ...
