This is a collection of sketches, stories, poems, anecdotes and pretty much everything in between and around the comics medium all written by women.
That might not sound like a big deal but in the boys club that is the comic book world it’s kind of cool to see a female perspective. LONE WOLF 2100 OMNIBUS I have to assume that this is based on the Japanese movie series and manga, Lone Wolf And Cub.
As for what the book is about…well, try this on for size.
Killing the marvel universe wasn’t enough because Deadpool is gunning for major literary characters now.
Lone Wolf must keep her safe from powerful people who want all for their own. I doubt I’ll read the book even though they’re super popular. And pickings were slim this month without double dipping into another companies releases and I decided not to do that.
It doesn’t sound terribly original but the Japanese movies were quite entertaining for their time and I’m hoping the new adaptation is as well. in commemoration of JJ Abrams’ latest entry into the series’ increasingly forked timeline.
Tom Sawyer, Little Women, Scrooge, Gulliver, Sherlock Holmes and more are sliced, diced, shot, stabbed and maimed all for our sick pleasure. I’ve only read the first Volume, but I quite enjoyed it.
Like I said, I don’t think this is canon by any means, but it could be fun and we all need a little fun sometimes. I mentioned last month how I liked the idea of releasing two volumes simultaneously and I stand by that. 1: Born To Kill hits stands the same day in paperback format. 6: WILD GAME For some reason I thought Sweet Tooth was done after Vol. On paper it sounds kind of ho-hum: post-apocalyptic world, boy who kind of looks like a deer so I started thinking like Road Warrior meets A Boy And His Dog, but it’s really much better then that. The guys really good at getting genuine emotion, humor and a decent helping of action and making all of it feel totally right. 18: WHAT COMES AFTER Oh Negan, what have you gotten yourself in to…?
SRP: 14.99 Contains: Deadpool Killustrated #1-4 Amazon, Indigo: June 25, 2013 TFAW, MCS: June 12, 2013 DC Preacher Book 1 Speaking of Steve Dillon…I love these books. And why did it take six years to continue collecting these issues? DC is also releasing two volumes of Stormwatch and two volumes of new Superman shenanigans. Anyone who’s familiar with Jeff Lemire probably all ready knows about Sweet Tooth and his, well, sweet tooth. For those of us who wait for the trades we’ll finally get to see what Rick and Jesus have planned for the baseball bat wielding, soliloquy spouting tough guy.
Maybe the end of the series gets a little muddled and some of the one-offs and last third of the series kind of feels like it’s padding out what I’m sure was a lucrative run, but for sheer, balls-to-the-wall creativity and jaw-dropping fun this series is the go to destination. It’s written by Karl Kesel, too, so I’m sure it’ll be entertaining. 2: Pearl (HC) New 52 Batman and Robin adventures, featuring Damien Wayne as Robin. I really don’t have a whole lot to say about this other then I LOVE IT!
Dark Horse is also releasing the original Lone Wolf and Cub in Omnibus editions this month as well for those of us who like to see where something started. Now, in light of Disney’s much ballyhooed acquisition of Star Wars, as well as today’s announcement of the upcoming television series, let us take a moment to honor those who have devoted such painstaking efforts to codifying the history of a universe inexplicably set in the distant past despite its status as a science fiction mainstay: that of George Lucas’s , and particularly its surrounding Expanded Universe. Butler’s Star Wars Timeline Gold has been the authority on chronology within the Star Wars Galaxy.
While the movies we all know and love or tolerate only cover a span of about twenty years, the rich collaborative history lent to it by novels, video games, and, yes, comics books (hopefully the TRO editorial board will have more on is involved.) Would you believe that this singular project has cultivated its own devoted community?
Of course the X-Men help him get revenge and apparently some space pirates as well (again WTF? If you can get past some of those oddities this might be a wild and original ride for fans of the Wolverine! He gets branded a terrorist and has to fight his foster daughter, Hope.
