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.)

GHOST IN THE SHELL Character posters!

Check out the seven new animated character posters for GHOST IN THE SHELL, in theaters nationwide on March 31, 2017 in REALD 3D and IMAX 3D

Directed by: Rupert Sanders
Starring: Scarlett Johansson, Pilou Asbæk, Takeshi Kitano, Michael Pitt & Juliette Binoche

In the near future, Major (Scarlett Johansson) is the first of her kind: A human saved from a terrible crash, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world’s most dangerous criminals. When terrorism reaches a new level that includes the ability to hack into people’s minds and control them, Major is uniquely qualified to stop it. As she prepares to face a new enemy, Major discovers that she has been lied to: her life was not saved, it was stolen. She will stop at nothing to recover her past, find out who did this to her and stop them before they do it to others. Based on the internationally acclaimed Japanese Manga, “The Ghost in the Shell.”

Review – The Wild Storm #1

It’s been a while, but I remember reading WildC.A.T.s for a while in the 90s. It was full of women in painted-on micro-armor and men with shoulders that could block doorways. Everyone was always posing dramatically and scowling those beautiful, Jim Lee, dark-eyed glares (even when it wasn’t Jim Lee’s art, that’s what everybody was trying to do back then.)  (Well, him or Liefeld anyway.) Long tassels of hair swung around in perfectly-timed breezes, and there were leg-pouches everywhere. I thought they were pretty silly, and I was completely obsessed with them for at least six months.

I skipped the New 52 reboot of many of the Wildstorm characters, and now I’m sort of glad I did, because The Wild Storm looks to be a selective re-reboot of everything, and if the first issue’s any indication, I’m going to like it.

Review – Scooby Apocalypse

Review – Scooby Apocalypse

I wasn’t much of a Scooby fan growing up; the recycled Hanna-Barbera animations always bugged me. But I’m a fan of 80s nostalgia just as much as the next geek, so I took a look at the collected Scooby Apocalypse graphic novel, without expecting much.

I’ve gotta say, I’m pleasantly surprised. The story is sometimes repetitive, but the dark tone and clever dialogue makes up for it. And the art’s beautiful. See below for a recap, review, and preview pages from Scooby Apocalypse.
