Potential

Potential:
a latent excellence or ability that may or may not be developed. 
For college
student Ian Westbrook, the brain has the potential to tap into hidden psychic
abilities, if only we were able to access it subconsciously.  At least that’s what he’s hoping to prove.  If only Ian could break away from his
research, he’d be aware of the trouble that’s to come.  Potential, a new series from the minds of
Andrew Taylor and James Green with inker Ryan Bross that’s sure to capture your
imagination.
A new
independent series, Potential has just that, potential.  For a group of relatively unknowns, at least
to me, they’ve created a rather interesting concept.  The main character, Ian, believes that the
brain has hidden powers that can only be accessed in the subconscious...

Fatherhood

When a father sets out to get the doll and make his daughter
smile, he fails miserably.  The pressure
makes him crack and he enters an imaginary ‘noir world’ where he is strong
enough to handle the problems that crush him in everyday life.  FATHERHOOD is an emotional tale about how
much love your heart can hold, how much love it takes to break a man, and what
happens when you lose your grip on reality because you are clutching that love
too tight.
I’m not going to lie, as a father myself, this was both a wonderful
and tough book to read.  As you would
expect, stories like this are some of the strongest emotionally written.  So right off the bat, I have to praise Ryan
Lindsay for putting his heart into giving us this story of Fatherhood.
The concept of the book itself is pretty ...

NeverMinds

While on a search and rescue mission, the NeverMinds team
encounters a mysterious new adversary. As they race against the clock to
complete their assignment, they try to find out who he is and how he knew about
their covert organization. Are they up for the challenge?
I really have to say, diving into the pages of Neverminds was a
great way to return to some review work. 
This book was such a pleasure to read from start to finish, and I really
hope that it continues on past these three issues.  Both the creative storyline and gorgeous
artwork sold me pretty much immediately and did not falter by the end.
The tale that Rich Bernatovech has written for us is a lot of
fun to read, and he does a great job of creating the world, or should I say worlds, for the series...
