Fly: The Fall #s 1-3

The serum works, Danielle has been stopped.

While Eddie grieves over the loss of Danielle, Francis is more determined than ever to perfect his Fly formula.  Now that he know that not only can he give the power, but also take it away, Francis seeks out the mysterious man who murdered his parents.  But, how did Danielle become so far gone and was there a way to save her?  Read the sequel to the hit series Fly and find out just where it all went wrong.

Ok, so if you haven’t read the first volume of Fly, go do that now.  Don’t worry I’ll wait…actually I gotta keep this review going, but for those of you who did, congratulations you’ve just become, like twenty percent cooler.  Fly is just one of those rare series that I myself can just really get into...

Sleepy Hollow #2 and #3

Craig Marsters only wanted to do the right thing, too bad Brian Aston doesn’t see it that way.  When a college prank goes too far Brian and his other teammates vow to keep silent about the whole ordeal.  Guilt and fear begin to consume them as tales of revenge percolate about campus.  Soon, Brian, Ty and their friends will discover that the Headless Horseman is more than just a legend.

So, Craig Marsters has met his fate and at the hands of someone he trusted no less, all because he stood up for what he believed was right.  He had a good head on his shoulders.  Now, Brian, Ty and their teammates have awakened the spirit of vengeance (no, I don’t mean Ghost Rider) and they’re going to learn the hard way about the true meaning of revenge...

Sanctuary #4

The penultimate issue of Stephen Coughlin’s Sanctuary arrives and finds us on the cusp of both new discoveries and big revelations about the island habitat and the people and creatures that inhabit it.

The Good
We get launched right into Issue 4 of Sanctuary directly where the third one left off, and it really never stops.  This chapter is probably the most exciting so far, and pulls absolutely no punches.  I never thought I’d be so involved with the lives of both the animals and people, but you can’t help but be curious about these interesting characters.

The Bad
Even at the fourth issue, I’m hard pressed to find glaring problems that lessen the quality of this great book.

The Summary
Just when I thought things couldn’t get any crazier, I am proven wrong...

Princeless Vol. 2 Issue #1

The princess who ran away is back along with her new friend, Bedelia the girl blacksmith and her loyal guardian dragon Sparky. Now that Adrienne has escaped, she has her eyes set on freeing her sisters. First up is the most beautiful girl in all the kingdom, Angelica.

However, things will not be easy for our heroines as the King believes Adrienne is dead and has put a bounty on her killer: Adrienne.

The Good
Everything that got me to love Princeless in the first collection is just as prevalent in the first issue of volume 2.  We even get some additional characters to start things off with even more bang. The adventures of our main characters are really starting to kick in, and we continue to get great writing and art to take us along on the journey.

The Bad
The change in artwork caught m...

Bad Girls Wrap-Up

All seems lost.

The Bad Girls have Sela and the other Forces of Good on the run with a seemingly endless demon horde, hot on their heels. With their ultimate goal of world and realm domination finally within reach, it would seem as though nothing could stand in their way.  Concluding the dimension-spanning series, Baba Yaga, the Goblin queen, and the rest of the Bad girls won’t let anything stand in their way, not even the Dark One himself.

Here it is, the end to yet another amazing series from the Grimm Fairy Tales universe.  Sela and crew definitely have their work cut-out for them this time around. However, with the help of Red Riding Hood and the Mandersoon, and one unexpected ally, the scales seem to finally be tipping in their favor...
