Aphrodite V #1

Writer: Bryan Hill

Artist: Jeff Spokes

Letterer: Troy Peteri

Publisher: Image Comics, Inc.

Synopsis: What if a machine developed its own consciousness, while also being beautiful and deadly? Aphrodite V takes place in the near future as Martin “a gay black billionaire with a 195 I.Q.” makes his pitch to the Los Angeles mayor on a plan to keep the city safe.

Medieval Spawn/Witchblade #2 (Of 4)

Medieval Spawn/Witchblade #2 (Of 4)

Writer / Artist: Brian Haberlin, Brian Holguin

Cover: Brian Haberlin

Witchblade is captured and crucified…will she survive? And will Spawn be her savior?

I have never been one for Witchblade or Spawn.  They are both products of the 90s comic excess where style was over substance and even the style wasn’t very good.

So it was no surprise even though this is historical fiction, it is so in the most loosest of terms.  There is no explanations of timeframes or time jumps.  There is never explanation of places or people as well (like say Gaul or France or even Europe).  Apparently this medieval Earth is just a vague time period that is more familiar with a bad D&D session than anything really.

Also, the plot logic doesn’t make too much sense either...
