Hercules: The Wrath of the Heavens #1

Writer: J.D. Morvan
Artists: Looky & Oliver Thill
Publisher: Titan Comics

In the distant future, humanity has discovered that the ancient Greek gods and figures of myth were simply alien races from other planets, and they now fight and die for them in galactic wars. Hercules, now living with his family in space, is forced by one of the gods to kill his family, and redeem himself by completing twelve trials for the ruler of a distant planet.

That’s as near as I can figure what the plot of Hercules: The Wrath of the Heavens is. It’s got a real issue with over-complicating things. The art, the story, the world. All have a bit too many moving parts and it’s hard to keep track of it all...

Robotech #1

Not just another retelling of the Macross saga … In July, the story continues as we bring Carl Macek’s original vision full circle. Taking into account every iteration of the series, this new Robotech #1 casts a fresh eye over classic characters like Rick Hunter, Lisa Hayes, Lynn Minmei, Roy Fokker, Claudia Grant, and Henry Gloval. Brian Wood and Marco Turini take us back to a Macross Island where *nothing* can be taken for granted.

There is a wide variety of anime categories out there that people gravitate towards, and I’d have to say mecha is one of the bigger ones. I certainly enjoy mecha shows, mostly because I just love robots in general. It’s been a while since I’ve touched anything Robotech, so I was actually quite excited to check out issue one of this new comic incarnation.

Sherlock: The Great Game #1

Writer: Mark Gatiss
Artist: Jay.

After solving a series of murders known as “A Study in Pink”, Sherlock and Watson must figure out the pattern behind an explosion before it happens again.

So, a bit of a disclaimer before I get into this review. I have never watched BBC’s Sherlock, and I’m not all that familiar with manga in general. Jumping into the middle of a manga based on BBC’s Sherlock, I was confused with the story, characters, and style in which it was presented. I found Sherlock: The Great Game #1 to be unengaging, but that very may well be because of how unfamiliar I am with the style and content of this manga.

Another disclaimer, I’m not certain if this is a true manga, i.e. written in Japanese, translated to English, or an English comic styled as a manga...

Captain Michael Geary has spent his military life trying to live up to the reputation of his great-uncle, “Black Jack.” Held captive by the Syndicate since the end of the last great war, that reputation may be the only thing keeping him alive – or will it get him killed when a deal is made to break him free?

The story opens with Captain Geary recounting the last moments before the destruction of his battle cruiser, lying on a table in his cell. His thoughts are interrupted as Destina Aragon, an Executive Officer of the Syndicate enters and offers a proposal for his release...
