MORNING IN AMERICA

WRITTEN BY: MAGDALENE VISAGGIO

ART BY: CLAUDIA AGUIRRE

LETTERS BY: ZAKK SAAM

SYNOPSIS: Morning in America follows the Sick Sisters, a group of friends and small-time delinquents who may be the only people standing between their suffocatingly small town and complete apocalyptic destruction. The Sisters know there’s something wrong in Tucker, Ohio — and they also know that the authorities aren’t doing anything about it. When the girls take the investigation into their own hands, they run into wild conspiracy theories, abandoned homes… and something that screeches in the night. At the end of the world, four girls with bikes and baseball bats are there to stand in the way. – COMIXOLOGY

THE STORY:  This story is well written and I’m intrigued as a reader to see where the storyline goes, it is...

Detective Comics #1001

Writer: Peter J. Tomasi
Penciler: Brad Walker
Inker: Andrew Hennessy
Colorist: Nathan Fairbairn
Letterer: Rob Leigh

I mentioned the finale of Detective Comics #1000, was little more than a teaser to bring casual readers back for issue #1001. Well, it must have worked, because here I am. Not exactly eager, but cautiously curious as only a long time non-Bat-reader can be.

The news doesn’t surprise Batman, as the same thing seems to have occurred in the Bat-Cave. Seeking help to find answers, he makes a visit to Francine Langstrom, scientist and wife of Kurt Langstrom, aka Man-Bat who has been away working with the Justice League (Dark)...

Kickstarter/Indiegogo Spotlight: Tales From Nocturnia #1

 

A medieval kingdom in shambles. Its throne vacated through death and disappearance. Can those remaining reassemble the shattered pieces in time so they can fend off an impending attack from the forces of darkness? 

Okay, where do I start on why I feel this campaign should be backed? It could be the art…which looks amazing. It could be the story concept which looks incredible. Heck, it could just be the amazing reward tiers. I mean, who doesn’t want their own mini gauntlet? I know I do. Like really bad. Guys, this is seriously, for real and serious one of those projects that you just do not want to miss out on. Head over to Kickstarter right now and get your pledge in before it’s too late.

Letters by: Troy Peteri

Synopsis:  What lies beyond our world? Is there a heaven? Is there a hell? When a young man finds himself on the wrong side of life, he encounters Death itself and is set on a quest to seek out his errant demon offspring in an attempt to make his way back to the world of the living! But there is much peril on the way and the only ones who can help him are KISS! – Comixology

The Story: I must say I am not a Kiss fan so I wasn’t looking forward to reading this book, that being said the members of KISS aren’t actually in this issue except a quick appearance toward the end. The name”Kiss: The End” to me has a bit of unfortunate innuendo that I don’t think the creators were intending...
