WonderCon 2017 – So many panels, so little time

It’s that time again, time to figure out how I’m going to get to all the WonderCon panels I want to see and still find time to walk the sales floor and, I don’t know, eat and sleep at some point. Especially since several panels on my list are going on at the same time. Anybody with a spare Time Turner or TARDIS, please shout out in the comments.

See below for a rundown of the WonderCon 2017 panels that caught my eye.

Review – Empowered and the Soldier of Love #2

Sexy superheroine Empowered is still battling the Soldier of Love (the evil Magical Girl with a love gun and a massive chip on her shoulder) (and a magical pangolin) (you heard me) and Ninjette is Not.

Review – The Wild Storm #2

All Angela Spica did was save someone’s life. And now hers is over. The rogue engineer lies bleeding in a place she hopes nobody will find – but she’s wrong. The people embedded in the secret power structures of the world are tracking her. Skywatch. Halo. International Operations. A covert operative called Grifter.

If only she hadn’t unknowingly foiled an assassination planned by her boss. If only her boss wasn’t the one person more interested in the Engineer’s transhuman implants than in her life.

It’s all going very wrong, very quickly. There’s going to be more blood.

See below for preview pages and a review of The Wild Storm #2.

Review & Preview – Transformers Annual 2017

This year’s Transformers Annual features two stories that are very different in style, but they’re tied together by the storytellers (Optimus and Pyra Magna, trying to work out their differences) and the eavesdroppers (Starscream and Bumblebee, though Bumblebee’s a figment of Starscream’s imagination of course, right? …..right…?)

See below for preview pages and a review of Transformers Annual 2017.

Review – Savage Things #1

You want to hurt. You revel in suffering. You are monsters. That is fine. We simply want you to be our monsters.

See below for a review and preview images from the newest book from Vertigo: Savage Things #1. (The book itself has some pretty explicit images of death and dismemberment, but the preview pages I was sent left out the very worst page, so you can read this review over breakfast if you feel like it.)
