The Little Mermaid 1

Do you know the real story of the Little Mermaid?  When a young mermaid finds herself captured, her world will turn upside down and she will need to find the courage to confront her fears or perish at the hands of evil.

We’re far from Disney territory with this one.  Taking place after Myths & Legends vol. 2, The Little Mermaid follows the exploits of Erica, the title character.  As the story progresses we find out that Erica’s situation is more perilous than originally perceived and that when pushed, we see a much darker side to her.  Meanwhile, Samuel Fisher is on the hunt for Erica and an old nemesis makes her presence known.

A good start-up to a new series, although it left more questions than answers, which I guess you want in the first issue...

White Queen 2

Though Calie remains the White Queen of what’s left of Wonderland, she must follow the Dark Queen’s orders. But her latest task proves too distasteful and Calie refuses to kill innocent people. When the Trickster tattles, the Dark Queen leaves Calie with one last chance to prove her allegiance and keep her daughter alive.

So, Calie’s pretty much stuck between a rock and a hard place right now.  It’s the choice between sacrificing her daughter, or sacrificing her soul.  However, she gets the idea to dredge up the past in hopes of finding a way to stop the Dark Queen in her tracks.  What she finds though are the answers that she’s known all along, thanks to an enemy long past.  Now it’s up to Calie to act upon her newfound knowledge in order to save her daughter.

A good mid-way...

Divinity 1

At the height of the Cold War, the Soviet Union – determined
to win the Space Race at any cost – green lit a dangerously advanced mission.
They sent a man farther into the cosmos than anyone has gone before or since.
Lost in the stars, he encountered something unknown. Something that…changed
Long thought lost and erased from the history books, he has
suddenly returned, crash-landing in the Australian Outback. The few that have
been able to reach him believe him to be a deity – one who turned the scorched
desert into a lush oasis. They say he can bend matter, space, and even time to
his will. Earth is about to meet a new god. And he’s a communist.
How long can it be before the first confrontation between
mankind and DIVINITY begins?
A very strange meeting of the m...

Star Wars 2

Rebel assault on Cymoon 1 continues! Luke Skywalker – cornered by Darth Vader!
Han, Leia, and the others – trapped!
I heard that this series was supposed to be canon, but so
far I’m seeing some things that make me kind of skeptical.  Having infiltrated an Imperial factory on
Cymoon 1, Han, Luke and Leia are now trying to make their escape, not having
counted on Darth Vader showing up with reinforcements.  Luke breaks off to go confront Vader for the
death of Obi-Wan while Han and Leia create an exit for the slaves they
discovered at the facility.  Meanwhile
C-3PO is having troubles of his own as scavengers are quickly dismantling the
Millennium Falcon which the Rebels hid in a junkyard...

Itty Bitty Mask 1-4

The Mask is back and this time in Itty Bitty form!  From Art Baltazar and Franco, join the Mask on a series of zany new adventures.  There’s wacky grandmas, crazy animals, a super-sized mayor and even an alien invasion.  So, strap yourselves for a wild ride as the Mask takes you here, there and everywhere!

Herman Shazbert was just out looking for an anniversary gift for his wife when he came across a strange looking mask in a small shop.  Despite the shopkeeper’s warnings, Herman purchased the mask and that’s when things started getting out of hand.  The Mask bopped around all over, from Herman’s mother all of the way to the mayor’s office, it certainly saw its share of action.  The thing is though, I just couldn’t get into this series...
