Hacktivist has an interesting setup and poses a great question. What if people had the power to change the world, in a way only master hackers can in films, yet were operating in the real world?
When you think of world events in the past few years and how the internet is slowly reshaping entire countries and cultures under its idea of a place f...

Robyn Hood Legend 2

Confounded and betrayed, Robyn reluctantly returns to Nottingham only to be greeted by the dark forces of Cal, The Sheriff of Nottingham.  With Allies and enemies alike, Robyn must now fight her way to the Sheriff’s stronghold, in order to finally put an end to his reign of terror.  However, something is amiss, something Will Scarlet neglected to tell Robyn that could jeopardize their entire mission.  Writer Pat Shand brings you the next exciting installment of the final chapter of Robyn Hood’s sordid story, where nothing is as it seems anymore.

Will Scarlet, alive!  How did he survive the Sheriff’s attack and is this even really the Will Scarlet she knows.  These are the kinds of thoughts that swirl through Robyn’s mind at this revelation...

Shahrazad 2

The Sirens of legend have been held against their will for centuries on end. But will Shahrazad save them or leave them to their fate?

I normally don’t jump to conclusions as to how strongly I feel about a new read or watch.  For the most part I try to give it a few until I decide whether I like it.  Shahrazad was one of those that I couldn’t help but be immediately enthusiastic about from the start.  While still very early in the series, it is still grabbing my attention just as strongly.

The adventure, or possibly adventures as I should properly say, continues with our second issue of our leading lady.  Only a couple pages in, we get to see a little more insight as to just how many past (or future?) journeys she has been on...

Billy the Pyro 1

Billy the Pyro is a not-so-normal coming of age story. Having to deal with his abusive and troubled past, Billy tries to just get by any way he can. That’s all about to change though as Billy soon finds out that he has been genetically altered by a government research institute called GAPRI (Genetic Alteration and Pyrokinesis Research Institute). Now able to produce and control fire, Billy teams up with GAPRI to help fight and protect those from past experiments gone wrong.

More often than not, having superhuman powers doesn’t always come with a glorious back story.  You’re usually just a regular person, dealing with your life as best you can.  Then all of a sudden BAM, you can walk through walls or fly...

Princeless Tales of Girls Who Rock

Princess Adrienne is on the loose again, and this time she brought some friends! While Adrienne may be the first runaway princess, she’s certainly not the only girl who rocks! Come join Adrienne, Bedelia, Sparky, Tempest, and some brand new friends in Princeless: Tales of Girls Who Rock, a one-shot sure to introduce you to your next comics obsession!

Sometimes when you can’t get enough of something, your prayers get answered.  Granted, it was more hoping than praying that I did for additional Princeless content.  Either way, we were given another offshoot issue with Princeless Tales of Girls Who Rock, which in itself rocks.  All around, everything about getting more of this series rocks whether it’s a one-shot or more of the ongoing story.

Once again, we get to see another compact,...
