The X-Files: Origins TPB

Before the FBI, before the X-Files, they were just two teenagers in search of the truth. On Martha’s Vineyard, a young Fox Mulder investigates something strange happening on the island, while in San Diego, 13-year-old Dana Scully looks into the shocking murder of her teacher. Two kids, two mysteries, one conspiracy that threatens the future of humanity.

Easily one of the most popular shows of all time, it’s no wonder it continues still in comics. Admittedly I faded out towards the end, but still appreciate the series as a whole regardless. Now, with The X-Files: Origins, it’s time to see how it all began for Mulder and Scully.

Even though the story is split across both coasts, it is all connected from within the shadows...

Dungeons & Dragons: Frost Giant’s Fury #1

Mighty giants stir across the land and, before their crushing might, nothing is safe. Badly injured after their encounters in the Demiplane of Dread and now lost in the frozen northern reaches of the Forgotten Realms, the Baldur’s Gate heroes will be tested like never before. Roll for initiative, a new Dungeons & Dragons adventure begins!

I never got into playing D&D; between the constant dice rolling and my fellow questers’ short attention spans, I couldn’t immerse myself in the role-playing. That being said, I do like the game as a story: the formula of different characters with different abilities, all struggling toward a goal while maintaining their own motivations, is a great storytelling vehicle. D&D: Frost Giant’s Fury uses this to good effect, while being fun to boot.

D4VEocracy #1

Ryan Ferrier and Valentin Ramon are back with D4VEOCRACY, the third arc of the acclaimed D4VE series. In the wake of a robo-political assassination, D4VE begins a presidential campaign. A hip new app startup has other plans for the robot society, however, and creates the perfect political rival.

This is one of those instances where I knew going into a book that I was going to be at a loss. I have never read any of D4VE, so I figured it might be hard jumping in now. Even so, I busted open D4VEocracy number one to see what I would get out of it.

It seems 34RTH (Earth) is now completely inhabited by robots as humans apparently have all been killed off. Our main character D4VE is just a regular old robot, living a pretty normal life for a robot...

Revolutionaries #1

THE REVOLUTION MAY BE OVER–but the future is just beginning! Ripped from the pages of the hottest crossover of the year, the REVOLUTION team of John Barber and Fico Ossio continue the action! KUP is a CYBERTRONIAN literally older than the universe; ACTION MAN is the ultimate special agent trying to live up to an impossible legacy; MAYDAY is a G.I. JOE leader trying to rescue her first command; and BLACKROCK is a CYBERTRONIAN that thinks he’s a human. It takes the mind-bending clash of ROM versus MAJOR BLUDD and the OKTOBER GUARD to bring this unlikely team together… and the secret they learn threatens to unravel the entire universe.

Revolutionaries #1 is for fans of IDW’s franchise lineup. All others will need to study up before reading.

Let’s start with the basics: the art is wel...
