Publisher: Blizzard

Synopsis: Leiutenant  Shivani Singh has the grades, intelligence, and determination to have the best chance to quickly move to the top. But, she wants to be on the front lines of the Dominion.

Review: What happens when writers Jody Houser and Andrew R. Robinson collaborate on  new comic series? You get the beginnings of what is sure to be an exciting adventure with a bit of emotional impact. While it’s about soldiers in space, it has the same feeling as a rookie cop show. This is not a criticism. In fact, this is what makes Starcraft Soldiers #1 so interesting...

Black Hammer – Cthu-Louise

Story – Jeff Lemire

Art – Emi Lenox

Colors – Dave Stewart

Letters – Todd Klein

This venture by writer Jeff Lemire in his Black Hammer Series is a one-shot story. That fact is welcome by me because I personally have yet to read any book in the Black Hammer series. I have been meaning to, just haven’t got there yet. The story is about a little girl who is half human half the Lovecraftian creature Cthulhu, and her plight dealing with the other “normal” students in her school.

I absolutely LOVE this book the writing is fantastic, Lemire paints a beautiful picture of teenage angst and pain through the eyes of this little monster girl. It is a fantastic allegory about being happy with who you are in life and appreciating where you come from.

The art by Emi Lenox is very good, it is very cart...

Usagi Yojimbo / Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Complete Collection

I love Usagi Yojimbo. I love the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. When these two anamorphic powerhouses cross paths I love it even more. I love everything in this collection. Yet somehow I don’t think the timing for this collection was right. I think the main reason for that feeling is that the last story in the collection, Namazu has been published three previous times in the past 13 months, with Turtle Soup and Rabbit Stew being included with the last printing. At least the last of those editions didn’t really need to happen. But let’s forget about that, and look at the good things, shall we?

First up is Turtle Soup and Rabbit Stew, the first crossover story from Turtle Soup (Mirage Studios), a 1987 anthology of different artists/writers playing in the TMNT sandbox...
