Writer: Ben Meares

Artwork: Jason Muhr

Colors:  Marco Lesko

Letters:  Pablo Amelia

Publisher:  Zenescope Entertainment

Synopsis:  Cautionary tale meets twisted horror in this modern urban legend tale that begins with four friends — Richie, Ginny, Alexis, and Adam — traveling through Texas on their way to California for what is supposed to be a  Spring Break. When they stop to get gas they are told about another way to get to their destination by traveling down Route 66, as well as the Tale of the Phantom Toll Booth that leads travelers onto the road to Hell.

Review:  If you enjoy dark horror movies that leave you overthinking the details, Grimm Tales is the one for you. The artwork is dark and rigid, which adds well to the darkness of the story...

This is why The Bureau of Bad has decided to join forces to make a plan that will defeat them once and for all. Now, it’s a mater of who will be the leader.  To decide, Princess Morbucks, the Fashionistas, and Mojo Jojo all share tales of their near victories against the Powerpuff Girls.

Dungeons and Dragons: Evil at Baldur’s Gate #1A

Written by: Jim Zub

Artwork by: Dean Kotz

Cover by: Max Dunbar

Publisher: IDW Publishing

Synopsis: The former heroes of Baldur’s Gate have returned from their adventures in Ravenloft and the frozen northern reaches of the Realms. As each hero must face their own trials, the Ranger Minsc attempts to reclaim his place as a hero even though the people have a new hero.

Review: While I expected fantasy, adventure, action, and an interesting story, I did not expect to laugh as much as I did. This is well written, funny, and left me ready to buy the next edition. The artwork is classic DnD with bold details and a busy (in a good way) background. There is nothing flat about any of it and I love that just as much as the storyline.
Minsc and his sidekick hamster are lovable and funny...
