Preview: Original Sin #6

THIS WEEK, the lingering question will be answered in ORIGINAL SIN #6 – who shot the Watcher? From the very beginning, fans have waited, wondered and speculated who was responsible for Uatu’s untimely death. Now, Jason Aaron and Mike Deodato peel back the curtain on the person pulling the strings as Original Sin races toward it’s heart-stopping conclusion.

Though the Watcher’s killer stands revealed, the knowledge Uatu kept cannot be put back in its bottle. The heroes’ most closely guarded secrets are now weapons in the hands of a terrifying enemy.

“It’s time for the shooter to come clean and to stand revealed—though this revelation will only lead to greater conflict for Marvel’s heroes,” says Marvel SVP Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “It’s difficult to imagine a more dangerous opponent than the person who stands before them now.”

Everybody has one. This is Marvel’s ORIGINAL SIN!

Review: The Graveyard Book Graphic Novel, volume 1

Review: The Graveyard Book Graphic Novel, volume 1

Neil Gaiman and P. Craig Russell’s The Graveyard Book Graphic Novel: Volume One arrives in bookstores on July 29th, but I just finished reading my copy a few minutes ago. I’m a book reviewer, we have our ways. (It involves a lot of shameless begging for review copies. I regret nothing!)

It’s worth the wait. The original 2008 young adult novel has already won the Newberry Medal, the Carnegie Medal, a Hugo, and a Locus award, but that’s almost not surprising anymore; it’s a Neil Gaiman book. He’s put stories in Christmas cards that defy the imagination, the man can write.

Now the book has been re-imagined with art under P. Craig Russell’s direction, and next year we’re going to see lots of articles telling us how it’s won all these other awards, just you wait.

Review: Artful

Review: Artful

If you’ve had anything to do with science fiction over the last thirty years, chances are you’ve seen or read something by Peter David. The man has written for movie and TV, dozens of original novels, thousands of comic book issues, and generally has something new coming out about once a month. My introduction to all things Peter David was though his Star Trek: The Next Generation books; Strike Zone was one of the first books that ever made me laugh out loud, and it only got better with Q-in-Law. David captured the characters better than any other writer, and the dialogue was always filled with snappy, quotable snarkiness.

In Artful, Peter David steps away from the science fiction/comic book world, and comes up with a different take on Charles Dickens’s classic, Oliver Twist. Not quite in the same vein as rewrites like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, this book follows the adventures of the secondary character Jack Dawkins, better known as the Artful Dodger, last seen being hauled off to prison for theft. After escaping from jail before he could be shipped to the penal colony in Australia, Dodger sets up a comfortable (to him) life in the slums of London, charming and thieving his way though the world until he stumbles across a plot to kidnap the princess Alexandrina – future Queen of England – thereby subjugating the British Monarchy. By vampires.
