The Power of the Dark Crystal #7

After being separated by the Chamberlin who is in pursuit of the shard, Kensho and Thurma reunite under a common goal.

I may have said this in the past, whether it be this series or other related ones, but it bears repeating. Growing up with the Dark Crystal movie and other creations from the masterful mind of Jim Henson, it’s wonderful to still get content stemming from that work.

Destiny NY Vol 1: Who I Used to Be

Writer: Pat Shand
Artist: Manuel Preitano
Publisher: Continuity Entertainment

What happens to a Chosen One after they’ve fulfilled their prophecy?

Logan goes to Destiny, a university in New York founded specifically to help the Chosen Ones given prophecies by seers that allow them to change the world. But Logan fulfilled her prophecy back in seventh grade, and now she’s directionless while her friends move on with their lives and their destinies. A grad student at a school, completely aimless and pissed off by seeing her ex-fiance’s engagement on Facebook, Logan runs into Lillith and feels an immediate connection to her. Unfortunately, Lillith just might be an ancient evil that Logan’s friend Gia is prophecised to kill.

Destiny, NY is one of the funniest, most sincere and heartfelt ...
