Art by: Edu Menna

Colors by: Jorge Sutil

Letters by: Troy Peteri

Synopsis:  What lies beyond our world? Is there a heaven? Is there a hell? When a young man finds himself on the wrong side of life, he encounters Death itself and is set on a quest to seek out his errant demon offspring in an attempt to make his way back to the world of the living! But there is much peril on the way and the only ones who can help him are KISS! – Comixology

The Story: I must say I am not a Kiss fan so I wasn’t looking forward to reading this book, that being said the members of KISS aren’t actually in this issue except a quick appearance toward the end. The name”Kiss: The End” to me has a bit of unfortunate innuendo that I don’t think the creators were intending...

MONSTER MATADOR #8

STORY & ART: Steven Prince

EDITOR: Hallie Prince

SYNOPSIS: When a monster rises from the Pacific, Hollywood’s greatest action heroes join forces to fight it. But even their combined awesomeness is not enough. Can the Monster Matador arrive in time to help?
The epic Battle for Santa Monica begins here!

STORY: So I really like the concept of this book, but I do have to say that the dialog and writing lose me. There is a string of random movie references that have no real bearing on the story. They seem forced in because the writer needed to make reference to some of his favorite movies. The story is sort of all over the place. The story seems rushed in spots to fit within the book and doesn’t really build out the world in which things are happening.

ART: The artwork in this book is o...

LITTLE BIRD #1

WRITTEN BY: DARCY VAN POELGEEST

ART BY: IAN BERTRAM

COLORS BY: MATT HOLLINGSWORTH

LETTERS BY: ADITYA BIDIKAR

SYNOPSIS: LITTLE BIRD follows a young resistance fighter who battles against an oppressive American Empire and searches for her own identity in a world on fire. – COMIXOLOGY

STORY: This may be one of the best books I’ve read in a while. The story is written well and follows a young Canadian resistance fighter. Whom goes on a journey to find another character called the ax. The amount of easy to digest world building in this first issue is quite impressive. You are basically thrown in the middle of a war and it’s not confusing at all as to what is happening...
