Katrina Hates the Dead

Written and Created: Russell Nohelty
Pencils and Covers: Juan Frigeri
Colors: Thomas Bacon
Inks: Fernando Melek
Letters: Bernie Lee

The Rapture has happened and those left behind have to deal with the walking dead and minions of the underworld. The worst part is they have integrated themselves into everyday life. They live in homes once occupied by those they have tortured and killed, they eat out, they do all the things humans used to do. Our hero Katrina is one of the few humans left on Earth and she is not too thrilled about it. She has taken on all that is evil, but along the way, she has picked up ex-lover Thomas, who just happens to be the son of Satan...

The Power of the Dark Crystal #7

After being separated by the Chamberlin who is in pursuit of the shard, Kensho and Thurma reunite under a common goal.

I may have said this in the past, whether it be this series or other related ones, but it bears repeating. Growing up with the Dark Crystal movie and other creations from the masterful mind of Jim Henson, it’s wonderful to still get content stemming from that work. The Power of the Dark Crystal is without a doubt a key example of that and we now move onto the second half of the series.

Jen continues his search for the “crystal thieves”, although he doesn’t feel that their intentions were necessarily of bad intent. I don’t normally point out individual lines, but one part here regarding the fact that Jen now sits upon a Garthim was so powerful...

Dollface #8+9

Lila’s battle comes to an emotional end in this horrific tale of Dollface.

Oh, but that’s not all folks, tell them what else they’ve won! Catching up in between these two arcs may not have been the best idea, especially with how gut wrenching the end was for issue eight. Issue nine of Dollface may not have had that emotional punch to the face, but it wasn’t exactly a ray of sunshine either.

With Emily being taken away from the fight, much to her frustration, Ivan returns to assist Lila who is clearly struggling against the rotund witch. She comes up with a great plan to bring Orla down from the inside, and her and Ivan successfully pull it off. You’d think this is where they celebrate another victory, right? Nope, here’s where your feels get walked all over and it’s really rough...

Bloodshot Salvation #1

Writer: Jeff Lemire
Artists: Lewis LaRosa & Mico Suayan
Colors: Brian Reber
Publisher: Valiant

After the fall of Project Rising Spirit, the killing machine Bloodshot is able to settle down and have a new start with his family as Ray Garrison. But forces are conspiring against him and his family that will cause him to take up the mantle of Blooshoot again.

I think my biggest problem with Valiant comics in general has to do with the set-up. It seems every new comic spins out of another, which in turn is part of a long and convoluted history that makes it hard for outsiders to be drawn in...
