Pirate Eye returns in January!

Pirate Eye, the genre mash up that took many by surprise is back!  Pirate Eye: Exiled from Exile, written by Josiah Grahn with art by Carl Yonder, is now a four issue monthly mini-series.  For the first issue of the series, there is a special variant cover painted by series artist Carl Yonder, limited to 1500 copies!

Combining elements of pirates and noir, Pirate Eye is the story of Smitty, an ex-pirate turned detective.  Banished from the sea, he is forced to take up residence in a port, relying on his brigand-honed skills as a ‘finder’ to make a living-until an old enemy exposes a secret that forces Smitty to flee for his life.  With a price on his head on land and at sea, Smitty will have to survive long enough to find out what went wrong, how to make it right, and who is responsible.

Pirate Eye returns to stores as a four issue monthly tale starting in January, building upon everything from the first four one-shot Pirate Eye stories. Pirate Eye continues the tradition of using “the best of both genres without ever resorting to the clichés of either.”

Whether you are a new Pirate Eye fan or have been following the book all along, this is the perfect jumping on point for pirate, detective or comic fans.

Deadpool Gets Wordy For His Own Original Prose Novel in 2015!

Sure, he’s got his own comic series. Sure, he’s one of the world’s most popular super heroes. But you know what he’s not? Fine literature. Well, let’s fix that! That’s right: In 2015, the Merc With a Mouth is conquering the world of prose fiction with Deadpool: Paws, an all-new original story penned by novelist and comic-book writer Stefan Petrucha.

Something is turning the city’s dogs into giant, bloodthirsty killing machines. And Deadpool is charged with taking care of business. Only thing is – Deadpool likes dogs. He doesn’t want to kill them. Now, people – that’s a different story. He can kill loads of people. At least the ones who deserve it. So what we’ve got here is a genuine character dilemma.

In 2015, be there when the Merc With a Mouth conquers the brave new world of prose. Deadpool: Paws brings you a disturbing tale of mutated canines…and the regenerating, loudmouthed mercenaries who love them.

TV Review: Constantine S1E5 Danse Vaudou

CONSTANTINE-First-Official-Image1In New Orleans, Constantine’s unusual knowledge of a string of crimes gets him into trouble with Detective Jim Corrigan. He must form an unholy alliance with Papa Midnite when a voodoo ritual to help people communicate with their dead loved ones takes a deadly turn.

Its taken about five episodes, but Constantine I think has finally found its groove. This episode has a really solid mix of paranormal ghost busters, but wrapped in that is a bigger story, and direction for the series. That comes at the end of the episode where Constantine asks Papa Midnite for some help to figure out about a “rising darkness.” All of that sets some tension, as Constantine gets a hint at some of the adversity he’ll face. But bigger about the episode, is the sense of world building.

The first four episodes can all really stand on their own, but with the introduction of Papa Midnite, and now Jim Corrigan, we’ve got characters we can expect to see multiple times, and an ongoing narrative, other than the mystery that is Zed.

The series is getting much stronger, and that’s actually pretty impressive since it stumbled so much from the start. I’m crossing my fingers that the series gets the chance to show us what its fully capable of.

Overall rating: 8
