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...

Freeway Fighter #1

Writer: Andi Ewington
Artist/Ink: Simon Coleby
Color: Len O’Grady
Lettering: Jim Campbell

After the world is ravaged by a deadly virus, a professional racecar driver-turned-scavenger struggles to survive the day to day harshness of a violent and desperate post-apocalyptic world.

Based on the 1985 Fighting Fantasy work of the same name, and including a special introduction by the original author, Freeway Fighter taps into the dingy feel of a Mad Max-esque dystopian world. Simon Coleby translates this quite well to the page, while Len O’Grady’s colors compliment the wasteland scenery with an atmosphere filth and despair.

The story transitions in a broad stroke from past to present, but this reviewer feels that, while this is only the initial setup of a larger picture, the tale was a little ...

Hook Jaw #3-5

Mag, Clint and his Navy SEALs descend into the depths, only to find themselves in a terrifying encounter! Meanwhile, some other interested parties arrive in the area, and more is discovered about what it is the CIA are looking for. Mag comes up with a plan to save Laurie from the pirates, but with Hook Jaw around, is anyone safe?

Hook Jaw is still one of the funniest, best-written creature feature comics I’ve read in a while.

The art isn’t pretty (the character renderings are sort of lumpy), but it gets its point across, and the sharks are effective. The writing is snarky and informative at the same time – I like that the writers try their hardest not to demonize sharks, but instead show that these creatures are reacting to extraordinary, human-caused circumstances...

Sky Doll: Sudra #1+2

In a parallel universe, the existence of a sweet, life-like android called Noa, a Sky Doll, has been turned upside down. After fleeing her tyrannical creator and fleeing to the far reaches of the galaxy to the planet Sudra, Noa cannot seem to escape her past! While she uses her mysterious healing powers to thrill the Sudra public, she is plagued by visions of the dead papesse Agape! Could this planet be even more revealing that its paradisiacal façade?

Sky Doll: Sudra is both gorgeous and bonkers in the very best way.

The art is unbelievable. I can’t imagine how many hours of digital painting went into each panel. The characters, which appear to be vaguely cat-like things, blend Disney cartoons with a dash of Manga and suffuse it with indefinable Frenchness...
