Published: August 21, 2013

Al Capone is dead. Shot through the skull by Shaws cursed slug, the gangland legend lies dead before Eliot Ness could drag him to court of tax evasion. Shaw’s interference has uprooted history and now Ness wants it set straight. The shot also alerted Shaw’s enemies of his presence in Capone era Chicago, and they are coming for him. They took his skin last time. This time they’ll have his eternal soul.


Review: Chin Music #1 and The Walking Dead #110

Chin Music #1

Chin Music #1 CoverShaw is a man on the run and lost in time. Fleeing ancient enemies, Shaw finds himself in prohibition-era Chicago surrounded by gangers and demons alike and caught between law enforcement and the local supernatural underground. Chin Music is a tale of mysticism and violence like nothing you’ve experienced before.

The first issue is a series of events, connected, but at the same time disjointed. I went in with high hopes considering the pedigree of writer Steve Niles and artist Tony Harris. Two individuals whose past works I’ve enjoyed immensely.

While the concept and the art is cool and the setup seems interesting, this first issue was too disjointed for me. I felt like there were three parts to the story and how one is connected to the other is unclear. It’s a muddied beginning, confusing to me the reader.

There’s events in Egypt, then things with a person I’m assuming is Elliot Ness. And it just cuts from one to the other without explanation, rather confusing overall. I know the series cuts across time and space, but the first issue doesn’t explain that enough, resulting in a story that’s rather confusing.

There’s a good chance when the series is over the whole will be greater than the individual parts, but this first issue was a rough one for me to start with.

The Walking Dead #110

walkindead110_coverEzekiel vs. Michonne?

The cover and the teaser above would make you think there’s some massive fight in this issue, but if you’re looking for sword slinging, then go elsewhere. The brilliance of that teaser is the sparing is at a whole other level, the emotional one.

This is easily one of the best issues of the series, focusing on those two characters Ezekiel and Michonne. It’s not a versus in the sense the two characters swing swords, they don’t really do that. Instead the issue is mostly the two characters talking.

This is Ezekiel’s “origin” issue. We learn more about the character, where he came from and how he got where he is, also, what’s up with the tiger. It’s a fantastic issue in that the focus is completely on the characters. And the series is best when it does just that.

In this case, two of the most mysterious characters are shown on an emotional level they haven’t been before and it is beyond fantastic to see.

We also get some movement in the upcoming battle. Wile Exekiel and Michonne are the main focus, Jesus’ mission to stop a traitor is also resolved in a great way.

Overall, this is easily the best issue in a long time, but also one of the best the series has ever released.

Godzilla’s One Crazy Summer!

IDW announces digital Godzilla comics, new characters, and a new title!

May 23, 2012San Diego, CA – Expanding what has become an explosive publishing partnership, this summer IDW Publishing and Toho Co., Ltd.are bringing even more kaiju chaos to comic fans everywhere!

May 23rd brings the launch of Duane Swierczynski and Simon Gane’s new, ongoing Godzilla series, which features covers by Arthur Adams and Tony Harris! That’s not all, though!

That same day, after much anticipation, Godzilla will finally hit digital platforms!  Available on iOS, Android, and Nook, IDW’s entire back catalog of catastrophic, giant monster destruction will be available as single issues and trades.  Not only that, but the new Godzilla ongoing will launch day and date with two exclusive digital variant covers!

This bounty of crushing comics destruction comes hot on the heels of IDW’s announcement of Orc Stain creator James Stokoe’s Godzilla: The Half-Century War, a generation-spanning tale packed to the gills with Stokoe’s trademark hyper-detailed linework and nearly-psychedelic colors. If any comics creator out there was born to draw giant monsters leveling crowded metropolitan areas, folks, it’s James Stokoe.

And as if all that city-stompin’ goodness wasn’t enough, IDW has made the necessary space in Godzilla’s monstrous world for even more of Toho’s creatures, with more than 20 of Godzilla’s co-stars joining the roster of licensed characters. From fan favorites such as JET JAGUAR to lesser-known greats like the gargantuas, SANDA and GAIRA, the future of Godzilla at IDW is bound to be even more action-packed than ever.

Needless to say, it’s going to be a chaos-drenched summer for Godzilla fans.

Hopefully they all have insurance.
