Red Team: Double Tap, Center Mass #2

One year after the catastrophic events that ended the first series, Red Team survivors Eddie Mellinger and Trudy Giroux are in the doldrums. Considered a political liability, the two are kept busy on small-time cases by their suspicious NYPD commanders… but a chance encounter in the ghetto gives them a chance to get back in the game. Trouble is, it means going far beyond the law… which is what almost got them killed last time around.

The only real flaw to this book was this is a sequel and there isn’t really much information about what happened before.  Best I could gather from reading over stuff online about the first series and what little is revealed that Red Team was a special narcotics team for the police department...

Battlestar Galactica Vol 3 #1

The Galactica’s search for sanctuary takes them beyond the limits of known reality and into a cosmic mystery where the hunters become the hunted, ruin and despair dot the skies, and Adama goes where friend and family can’t follow. Cullen Bunn (Sinestro Corps, The Sixth Gun, Deadpool & The Mercs for Money) and Alex Sanchez (Mad Max: Ride, 30 Days Of Night: Spreading the Disease, Katana) invite you on a journey unlike any in the annals of Battlestar Galactica!

Some quick context to explain where I’m coming from on this review.  First there has been plenty of articles talking about how non Marvel/DC comic companies are succeeding as well.  You get into the articles and it explains that these companies (IDW, Dark Horse, Dynamite, ect) succeed by doing licensed properties...

Snotgirl #1

WHO IS LOTTIE PERSON? Is she a gorgeous, fun-loving social media star with a perfect life or a gross, allergy-ridden mess? Enter a world of snot, blood, and tears in this new ongoing series from New York Times Best Seller BRYAN LEE O’MALLEY (Scott Pilgrim) and dazzling newcomer LESLIE HUNG!

The easy way for me to explain how I like the book is this – When I picked up Scott Pilgrim, I read some of it but it didn’t catch me and I never finished it. When I got the review copy of Snotgirl, every time I opened the PDF I ended up reading the whole story.

I know it’s not exactly to be fair to compare O’Malley’s work to his Scott Pilgrim but that book hit a sort of a critical mass, it’s hard to not talk about O’Malley’s comics without some comparison to that looming shadow of that particula...
