Death To Dinksville

“Ten years ago, the town of Dinksville was horrified when Dylan Haddenfield walked into the local high school armed with a shotgun and a machete. In a bloody rampage, he shot and killed give students and decapitated a teacher. He was apprehended and sent to prison. Now he’s escaped, but he’s not the only threat to this once peaceful town….”

Let me start out by saying that this book is adult only. If you can’t read it, that’s what the tiny white box on the picture says. These books are violent, sexual and have all sorts of language. Now, don’t go saying you weren’t warned.

The Good : I love the art in these books. It has a very round shape to it which I know sounds like a load of nonsense but somehow that’s what I think when I look at it. I like that they’re bold...

Ursa Minor #2

It’s been a while since I’ve brought you a Big Dog Ink title and I am super excited to finally share Ursa Minor #2 with all of you! Do y’all remember the premise in this series?

Werewolves kill the president. Vampires step forward to help. Ringing any bells? If not, well then you should have been paying better attention. Heck, y’all should own issue 1 by now. I’m going to leave that up to you though and tell you all about issue 2.

The Good : Tom Hutchinson doesn’t disappoint in his storytelling. In this issue, he gives us hints as to Naomi’s background and fills us in more on the relationships between the different characters...

The Ultimate 7 Trilogy, Vol. 1

I feel as if it’s been forever since I’ve posted a comic book review and I am thrilled to say that I have a fantastic one to share with you today!

“A Tale of Epic Proportions launches this modern SCI-FI Adventure.
From the far reaches of space, a diverse group of warriors, headed by the Terran; Jenny Rocket, band together to stop an Armada of intergalactic, time traveling murderers, under the control of the Evil OverLord, who is determined on enslaving all life in the universe. ”

Yep! Sci-Fi, not zombies or vampires or even super hot bikini clad girls! Not that I dislike any of those, but I was just super excited to read something different from everything else I’ve been seeing lately.

The Good:
The story line...
