Double Jumpers Hits Comixology!

From Action Lab, the studio that brought you “Princeless” comes the comic the shares absolutely none of the things you liked about “Princeless”, “Double Jumpers”!

Proving again their determination not to be pinned down to any one niche in the comics industry, Action Lab Comics has chosen their second book to be featured on Comixology and it’s what some critics have called the anti-Princeless.  From Action Lab’s own renegade writer Dave Dwonch and rogue illustrator William “Bill” Blankenship comes the M rated comic that’s anything but mature.

“Double Jumpers” invites you to follow a group of video game programmers who, on the eve of their new game’s debut, fall victim to a freak accident and find themselves in the bodies (and the world) of their characters...

Dark Horse Set to Release Camilla D’Errico’s Helmetgirls!

MILWAUKIE, OR — Camilla d’Errico is a powerful voice in pop surrealism, her work combining diverse influences in imagery is both singular and hauntingly familiar. Compelling and deeply personal, Helmetgirls documents Camilla’s art and lifestyle brand that fuses manga, steampunk, and fine art into an original and meaningful aggregate.

Gargantuan biomechanical headgear adorns beautiful, wide-eyed, and seemingly fragile girls. More than just decoration, the helmets express each girl’s character, needs, and desires. Look deeply into the Helmetgirls’ eyes—they have a story to tell.

Little Dixie Horror Show

Next time you’re driving through southeastern Oklahoma, be mindful of what road you’re taking, the places you pass and the folks you see or talk with. Especially when passing through Little Dixie.

Little Dixie…what…never heard of it?

Doesn’t matter. Just keep on driving. Soon as you start noticing the Taco Bells and suburbs changing into trailer parks and decaying antebellum mansions, the cemeteries and pawnshops outnumbering the schoolhouses and public parks, you’ll know just where the hell you are. Little Dixie, where everyone has a story to tell, a Moonpie to share, and something ugly hanging from the family tree.

Dead hookers that won’t stay dead…the frozen memories of a haunted movie house that refuses to let the past die…a foolhardy young boy seeking a fabled treasure wi...

The Fall of Camelot was just the beginning…

The Good
It’s hard to go wrong with a story involving Merlin.  I definitely enjoyed the first issue of Daughters of Merlin and its new approach to the land of Camelot.  It gave us a good amount of action and of course, plenty of magic which is always fun to see.  I particularly enjoyed the scenes where he displayed the immense magical powers that he possessed while fighting off foes.

The Bad
