The Power of the Dark Crystal #3

The return of the Skeksis kicks Jen out of a daze and back on the offensive in the name of Thra. Meanwhile, Kensho and Thurm look to escape the Crystal Castle unnoticed.

While my excitement wasn’t so much surprise this time, I was still very much excited to read this book. Had I known what would happen in this issue though, it may have had a bit of worry. Either way, picking up The Power of the Dark Crystal issue three was something I was more than eager to do.

In hopes of saving her world, Thurma has cause the Crystal to once again be broken, and the Skeksis have returned. They waste no time spreading terror as they did before, and in the chaos, the shard is almost lost. Thurma manages to find it taken by a creature undeground, running into Kensho as well...

Hero Cats: Midnight Over Stellar City Vol 2 #1

The claws of justice are BACK! Midnight is forced to deal with the fallout of a prison break at the Taurus County Jail. Can Midnight corral the criminals so Stellar City can sleep safe and sound? With the help of fellow Hero Cat, Cassiopeia, they might just have a chance!

Kill Shakespeare: Past is Prologue: Juliet #1

Juliet Lives! The newest chapter of the award-winning Kill Shakespeare series flashes back to five months after the death of Romeo, where Juliet is mourning yet another loved one – her mother. Now Juliet must discover who the murderer is, lest she becomes the next victim. New series artist Corin Howell (Transformers, The Mighty Zodiac, X-Files: Scully) takes the reins in a tale perfect for new readers to the series. (from IDW’s website)

In this alternate telling of what happens after Romeo and Juliet, Juliet lives and suffers alone after Romeo’s death. Juliet, presumably still the age she was in the original story, is self-absorbed and willful. She’s not immediately likable, exactly, but because the reader knows her story already, she’s at least relatable.

There are several nods to othe...
