Zombie Tramp Origins #1

The impossible to find, long out of print original series, in full color for the first time! Revisit the powerful origin story that launched a modern cult classic as high priced Hollywood call girl, Janey Belle, gets set on her fateful path to become… Zombie Tramp! This is a remastered reprinting of the first series that was never before released in single issues to the direct market.

Ever since I saw this announced in Previews, I have been eagerly awaiting its release. Like the summary points out, unless you’re one of the extremely lucky few to own the original, it hasn’t been possible to read. Finally, the general public will get to see what started it all beginning with Zombie Tramp Origins issue one.

Before she was Zombie Tramp, Janey Belle was once the top dollar number one call g...

Blood Shot’s Day Off #1

Writer: Eliot Rahal
Artist: Khari Evans
Colors: Andrew Dalhouse
Publisher: Valiant

Two soldiers out of time, kept alive as part of a secret project that turned them into weapons of mass destruction, have finally earned a day off after decades of service.

There are two major problems I have with Valiant as a whole. It’s very confusing and unwelcoming to newcomers, and attempts to explain backstory come off as poorly written exposition dumps. It’s also all very silly, which in theory is fine, but it’s all played straight and there’s usually nothing to anchor it and for the most part, the silliness all gets to be too much. Blood Shot’s Day Off is needlessly confusing, and incredibly silly, but it does manage to find an emotional anchor that makes those two issues easier to deal wit...

Lola XOXO Vol 2 #1

The best-selling Aspen series from creator Siya Oum returns! In the epic first volume, the tough-minded Lola learned the brutal reality of the apocalypse within the confines of the ruthless Wasteland Trading Company led by the treacherous Edgar and his posse! However, the true challenge lies ahead, as her desire to be reunited with her lost parents still burns greater than ever!

I know that I can’t keep up with every comic I come across, but this one surprises me. Not only is it a post-apocalyptic title, but it’s also from a creator I like a lot. Whatever reasons aside, I was more than happy to open up the first issue in volume two of Lola XOXO.

Since the first volume, Lola has moved onto a free life with a band of fellow escapees, albeit with bounties on their heads...

The Black Sinister

A pitch-black tale of a city that lives in fear—not of crime or gangs, but the billionaire vigilante sworn to protect them.

Emerson Black’s superhero identity is no secret: patrolling the night skies as the Black Sinister, he enforces his own brand of psychotic justice, no matter the cost. Joined by his unhinged butler Danby, Emerson protects the citizens of Coal City from kidnappers, gangs, and jaywalkers alike. But who will protect the city from the Black Sinister? And what happens when the mayor hatches a plan to finally rid Coal City of its deranged antihero?

Compared to a lot of hardcore comic fans, I can’t say that I read a lot of comics, but I do read a good amount. From time to time there’s going to be a comic you aren’t a fan of, but could be great for others...
