Invader Zim #8

Dib wears the wrong pants… WITH DEADLY CONSEQUENCES!! Can the Earth survive an invasion from the waist down?

I wore the wrong pants once. As in, I didn’t wear any pants. At school. Presenting a slideshow to the President of the United States. He called my genitals “sad” and “lacking austerity”. Wait no, that was the dream I have every night. Well regardless, not wearing the right pants can be a terrifying experience. For Dib, wearing the wrong pants results in everyone pointing at him and screaming “WRONG PANTS”, because the pants everyone else is wearing is controlling their minds...

Satanic Hell Vol 1

Broke and directionless, the three members of the metal band Satanic Hell arrive in Texas for a chance tour set up by a mysterious promoter named Sam. Death Priest, Dante, and Exodus quickly find trouble in the bizarre world of Texas, now an authoritarian Christian state controlled by a council of religious fanatics. 

Satanic Hell? What is this, a comic book about my morning commute? There’s so many dang cars on the road that hell would be preferable! I’m just kidding, we all know I’m not allowed to drive after I killed all those people with my car. Turns out, Satanic Hell is about a band of the same name. While on tour, they find themselves stuck in Texas, which is privatized following an economic crisis...

Power Lines #1

A local street hood surviving in a crime-infested ghetto has his life turned around when an ancient magic grants him superhuman powers—except his ability only activates in an upscale white community that may not accept him. Gritty, racially charged street-wise drama! 

It seems like racial tensions are at a tipping point these days. There’s protests and unhappiness pretty much everywhere you look, and a certain presidential candidate isn’t exactly helping. If Martin Luther King Jr. was still alive he would be severely depressed. I don’t think that there is a better time for a comic like Power Lines than right now. A comic book of this nature is incredibly appropriate and powerful. While it might not single handedly defeat racism, Power Lines is an engaging story about racial dispa...

Bad Company: First Casualties

Bad Company: First Casualties is a collection of stories that were originally serialized in 2000 AD Progs 1950 -1961. This collection of tales tells the horrors of war in all of its bloody reality. Written by Peter Milligan and featuring art by Rufus Dayglo and Jim McCarthy. 

In the words of the Fallout series, “War. War never changes”. Or in the words of Old Snake in Metal Gear Solid 4, “War has changed”. Someone is lying to me. Whether or not war does or does not change, one this is for certain: it is always awful. People die by the thousands due to random political interests. Innocent civilians caught in the crossfire end up six feet underground. I hate to be controversial, but I don’t like war. I don’t think that it is good...

Velocity TPB

Carin Taylor is the fastest woman in the world. At least, she’d better be if she wants to save her own life and the lives of her Cyberforce teammates. When a former Cyberdata scientist— and test subject—seeks revenge against the members of Cyberforce, only Velocity can save her friends before the clock runs out. 

A comic about a speedster who isn’t the Flash? Shoot, sign me up and send me a million copies! Velocity tells the story of a female speedster named, well, Velocity. A creepy bald robot dude injects her and her teammates with a virus that will kill them all in one hour. Luckily for Velocity, an hour to her is like a week or something. Because she runs fast. So she’s basically the bus from Speed, only she’ll die in an hour regardless of how fast she runs...
