The Strain – Complete Series

When a Boeing 777 lands at JFK International Airport and goes dark on the runway, the Centers for Disease Control, fearing a terrorist attack, calls in Dr. Ephraim Goodweather and his team of expert biological-threat first responders. Only an elderly pawnbroker from Spanish Harlem suspects a darker purpose behind the event—an ancient threat intent on covering mankind in darkness.

Anything within the horror genre tends to be hit or miss for me, but something Guillermo Del Toro was involved in had good odds to be a hit.  As I had hoped from the first book, The Strain turned out to undoubtedly be quite a big hit in my opinion.  I wasn’t sure what direction this would go in, but fortunately the story has a gruesomely fresh approach while keeping to the classic roots...

Robyn Hood #5

As the rebellion rages on through the city of Bree, everything is on the line for Robyn. Trapped in the fairy tale realm of Myst for over a year, she has become the voice of the revolution and a hero to the people. Everything is on the line as Robyn faces off against the wicked King John and his champion, Guy of Gisbourne, in a battle to the death. Zenescope’s epic miniseries comes to a shocking end in this oversized finale, “Robyn Hood’s Death.” 48 pages, Written By Pat Shand, Artwork by Larry Watts

Robyn’s really gotten herself in deep this time. Here we are at the end of the series and she’s gone and bungled the whole plan.  Now, she’s looking down the wrong end of about a dozen arrows with no real hope in sight.  Or, at least that’s what she’d like you to think...

Princeless Vol 2 Issue 2

Adrienne is hot on the trail of her older sister Angelica. But in order to save Angelica, Adrienne will have to face a real monster – jealousy. Meanwhile, another member of the royal family has disappeared and one of King Ashe’s closest allies may be to blame!

I normally don’t find myself feeling the need to start off talking about the cover of a book, but the front of Princeless Vol #2 is just too funny not to.  I won’t deny that books with risque covers draw me in, but I can also appreciate the argument being made on how relevant they actually are. Regardless of your stance on this though, I personally got a laugh out of this.

So, onto the book itself...
