Southern Dog 1

When awkward high school teen Jasper Dixon conceals an
injury sustained during a hunting excursion with his family, his infected wolf
bite combined with the hormonal changes of puberty triggers a disturbing
physical transformation. Now he’s forced to confront his Deep South upbringing
and monsters far worse than what he’s become!
It can be hard enough just being a teenager sometimes,
especially these days.  Then you add in
having an overbearing father, who also happens to be a stereotypical Southern
dad.  Take all that and throw in a
metamorphosis far beyond the normal adolescent body changes, and things are
going to get really tough.  These are the punches that Southern Dog hit us with, and they’re not holding back.
This new title from the Danger Zone has quite a lot going
for it...

Keeper 2

Scott Winslow is making a killing in England.  As he plies his trade as star goalkeeper for
up & coming East London club Lewisham United, he moonlights as a serial
murderer terrorizing the public with a body count in double digits.  Scott Winslow’s reign of terror continues,
but how close are Scotland Yard to discovering the horiffic truth? Will Scott
lay low… or has the violence only just begun?
Most everyone has their own thing that they’re good at and
really enjoy doing.  Some, like Scott
Winslow for example, become a star player for a soccer team.  That’s unfortunately not the only thing he’s
good at.  I guess the excitement of his
day job just isn’t enough for him as he proves again in issue 2 of Keeper.
The cops are on the hunt, and their first solid lead has
them ai...

Princeless Vol 2

Adrienne is hot on the trail of her older sister Angelica.
But in order to save Angelica, Adrienne will have to face a real monster —
jealousy.  Meanwhile, another member of
the royal family has disappeared and one of King Ashe’s closest allies may be
to blame!
It really goes without saying at this point that I am more
than delighted with any opportunity to read a book coming out of Action
Lab.  One in particular comes to mind,
especially with how much of it I’ve been able to see.  I’m speaking, of course, of their wonderful
series Princeless.  For those that
haven’t read this title, this collection gives just as much reason to do so.
Prior to getting my hands on this full second volume, I had
the chance to read issues 1 and 2 some time ago...
