Review: Ghostbusters International #3

GB_Intl03-coverWhen there’s something strange in Poveglia who you gonna call? GHOSTBUSTERS!!! Our boys from Manhattan are still at it in Italy on the Island of Poveglia as is where we left off in issue #3 of this wonderful series from IDW Publishing‘s Ghostbusters International #3. Just to a small recap of the last issue, Scandinavian Businessman Mr. Vinter was trying to negotiate the complete purchase of Ghostbusters with Peter, Ray, Winston, Egon and of all people Walter Peck, who is now a liason between the City of New York and the Ghostbusters. The sale was not agreed upon as the gang (except for Peter) and Walter are unwilling to sell the business. Instead and arrangement was made between all parties that the Ghostbusters Services would be rented to go to sites Mr. Vinters company has purchased to rid them of ghosts and anything that may prevent these eventual attractions from being nothing more than fully successful. The gang minus Egon (he was injured in a previous ghostbusting job) were flown in a private jet to Italy, and to the deserted Island of Poveglia where things just seem a little off.

Which now brings us to the present issue, Mr. Vinter is speaking with I assume to be Kaia Maie, his personal assistant, but it was ominous dialogue, which means to me that there is something more than what just meets the eye (hey it is a comic book series after all), then the book jumps to the guys walking around the island and Ray is take P.K.E. readings to see the amount of paranormal activity there is on the island and all of a sudden they are face to face with this ghost who looks like the Doctors you would see on the earlier versions of Assassins Creed with the long robes and the weird mask with the long beak and the black hat, just really creepy. Anyways Ray has named him the Plague Doctor and he is the whale (or main guy) they are looking for. The guys try to catch him with their proton packs but was unsuccessful (hey there are more books to go, can’t be that easy).

The guys continue their search for the whale and back in New York Janine is holding interviews for new recruits to join the team as the business keeps growing. There was a huge line but there were no good candidates applying and Janine was left a little perplexed and exhausted! Meanwhile back in Italy, the gang continues the search for the Plague Doctor, they are searching this old creepy mansion where they find their man again. But this time he is much bigger and mad, he grabs Ray and picks him up in the air. Ray is able to grab his proton gun and try and shoot the Plague Doctor and Ray is dropped and falls through the floor.  While waiting for the guys to get down there, Ray gets some incredible readings on his P.K.E. meter and finds a hidden wall and a piece of cloth with a weird looking symbol, Ray tries to break through the wall by using his proton pack and duh, duh, duh, the Plague Doctor shows up behind him and he his mad and he is a giant chicken skeleton with glowing red eyes and a couple of feathers. The Guy’s finally get down to ray, they Zap the giant chicken, get him into the trap and all seems well (again there is more books coming out) and head home to where they are staying while in Italy.

Back in NYC Egon is talking to the guys on the phone about the readings that Ray sent to Egon to do some research for them and he is telling them that he is very concerned (then again Egon has always been sort of a worry-wort) because the symbol that Ray found on the Fabric correlates with some research Egon had done in Sweden back when he was in College. Peter informs Egon that they have to do one more mission before they come home as Mr. Vinter wasn’t fully satisfied. Egon warns the guys to be careful and that he is going to continue to do some research for the guys as he is very concerned for the guys and their safety.

The 1st issue of this series that I had read was issue #2 and I was happy with issue, probably because it was the Ghostbusters, which is one of my favorite movies and cartoons of all time, but it was a build up issue which means it was slow with little to no actions. With this issue it was action from basically beginning to end with some comedy in between with Janine interviewing new candidates for an open position. There were some familiar faces, one I think was Terry Crews from the Old Spice commercials and the father in Everybody hates Chris, The breakfast Clubs John Bender (played by Judd Nelson) and the only other actor I could recognize is Aziz Ansari who is a comedian and actor who played in Parks and recreation. I think writer Erik Burnham did another solid job with the flow of the issue. I am definitely looking forward to issue #4.

The artwork by Dan Schoening, was good as usual, the look of the characters is truly unique yet recognizable, which I really think is key. This issue was not as dark in color as it was previous and I think that has a lot to do with the colorization by Luis Antonio Delgado, the parts where the Ghostbusters were using their proton packs was done very nicely as well as the glow around the very angry giant chicken really set the tone. Good job by both the artist and the colorist.

Overall I am very satisfied with this issue, there was a lot of action (finally), there is still tons of mystery that makes you look forward to the next issue, which is key (gotta sell those future issues). As a side note here, how many of you readers tend to get emotionally sad to see Egon, even though it is in the form of art. I hope it’s not just me, I was really sad when Harold Ramis passed away, like a piece of my childhood died (please feel free to leave you thoughts in the comments section below). Anyway back to the original topic on hand, I think the creative team has done a really nice job of setting up the remaining issues for an epic conclusion. This issue is a must read.

Review: The Gingerdead Man #2

DZ_COVER_GINGERDEADMAN2_A_REG copy

**WARNING THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SOME GRAPHIC AND INSENSITIVE MATERIAL. READERS HAVE BEEN ADVISED**

Hi my name is Gingerdead man wanna play? That’s what comes to mind when I started reviewing The Gingerdead Man comic by Action Lab: Danger Zone. I feel like it the Gingerbread man from Shrek and Chucky from child’s play had weird sexual relations and somehow spawned this evil, yet horny Gingerdead Man, thank god he was interrupted before he crumbed or frosted, whatever works for you! That vision in my mind would have scarred me for life and I have seen some pretty fucked up shit in my life.  Writer Brockton McKinney (Death Curse) is indeed one sick and twisted man. The first few pages alone sucked me in to see what kind of messed up stuff I was going to see, not that the naked ladies in the beginning of the comic had anything to do with it (shhhh our little secret).

The plot starts out with a couple of very naked ladies in what seems like a strip club, trying on what I assume are a couple of Halloween costumes when one decides to try and scare the other. Then out of know where this creature comes out and kills them, but have no alarm it was just a movie Billy (a young kid) was watching while his sister is talking to the Cops. She’s nervous, because she keeps hearing noises and screams coming form an empty building near where they live and where Billy’s sister works. So a couple of Police Officers go to do a check of the scene.

In the meantime, the comic cuts to the Gingerdead man fornicating with a sugary candy woman I presume he created for the sole purpose of popping his button and frosting all over her? Anyways, he is soon discovered by the police and in the process of chasing him one officer is killed by a hot substance and the other is forced to eat the Gingerdead Man’s arm and unknowing to the Gingerbread Man the officer turns evil.

Meanwhile, Billy is bored and is giving his sister a hard time. She won’t allow him to go outside until the officers tell them the coast is clear to keep her brother safe, which is noble. But the cops have been gone a while and a nice customer of hers offered to check in the officers for her, but she declines. Meanwhile a gang is seen walking into where the Gingerdead Man is and it looks like the gang and the Gingerdead Man have teamed up to make some “Cookies” that seem to be selling which must have some kind of drugs in them. When they walk in the gang gets the surprise of a lifetime.

This was the first mature comic I have ever read It was unique and I kind of want to follow the rest of the series to see how the plot unfolds. The story flowed and made complete sense and nothing seemed out of place. Brockton surely has a twisted sense of humor and its definitely showed in this series thus far. The artwork by Sergio Rios was good, it was not overly detailed, but also didn’t look like an amateur did it either. It was subtle and colored nicely.

This series is definitely not for everyone, especially kids and those who get offended easily. Overall I was pleased with this issue. It was fun and different and I think that is what really drew me in. Don’t get me wrong, I love the regular comics I am familiar with, but sometimes it is nice to switch it up sometimes. I would suggest that it be read, but it’s also not a comic that you absolutely have to put at the top of your reading list, but if you are looking for something different, this series is for you.

Voltron Legendary Defender Details are Revealed

OMG my interlocks have been activated and my dynotherms have been connected! Just a short while ago at WonderCon in Los Angeles California, Voltron fans (sadly I was not one of them) got their first look at the art and a teaser trailer and major details of the upcoming Netflix reboot of Voltron: Legendary Defender. And boy oh boy did it not disappoint!!

Here is what we know so far:

Voltron: Legendary Defender is set to debut on Netflix on June 10, 2016, which is a major relief because I thought I was going to have to wait forever to see the awesomeness.

The cast is amazing:

Keith: Steven Yeun (Walking Dead)
Lance: Jeremy Shada (Team America: World Peace)
Pidge: Bex Taylor-Klaus (Arrow and The Last Witch Hunter)
Shiro:  Josh Keaton (Green Lantern: Animated Series / Arkham Origins Video Game)
Princess Allura: Kimberly Brooks (Mass Effect /  Arkham City)
Corran: Rhys Darby (Flight Of The Concords / Modern Family)

voltron pilots

All I have to say is wow, Steven Yeun alone makes the cast awesome. Like my fellow contributor here at graphic policy MR. H says, the Walking Dead should be renamed the Walking Glenn because he is so badass. As my suspicions thought, Sven was renamed Shiro, which is ok, after all it is a reboot. Most of what they show in the artwork is pretty close to the original series as far as how the Pilots look, which is awesome, it means they aren’t going to stray too far away from what we already know.

black lion

I am just amazed at how awesome this show already looks, I can’t wait until June 10th to see this show. Which really speaks volumes if I am already this excited for it as I was very cautious about how another Voltron show would turn out after the disappointments Voltron: The Third Dimension and Voltron Force were. Let me know how you guys feel. Please feel free to chime in.

A First Look At Voltron: Legendary Defender

635943442454875619-vlt-firstlook-2--175802

Voltron fans rejoice! Or shake your head in shame, today we got a glimpse of what Voltron is going to look like in the Netflix reboot Voltron Legendary Defender. This was just an unexpected announcement, especially since WonderCon is giving fans a sneak peak video. I wasn’t expecting to see anything until Friday night or early Saturday. Also we got some details about the show. The 1st season is going to be 13 episodes long, most of the characters are recognizable except for one. Keith, Lance, Pidge, Hunk, Princess Allura are back but missing is Sven, I believe they are replacing him with a character named Shiro. Netflix, like they have with most of their original programming will be delving into the back-story of all the major characters, which I think would be great as it will give some depth to the show, which I think is why daredevil has done so well and the same goes for Arrow on the CW.

So you may be asking yourself what my reaction is to this screen shot of Voltron in action. To be honest, at first I didn’t know what to think. I didn’t have a positive feel nor a negative feeling, I think I was just in pure shock as to what I was seeing. First off he looks similar to the original Voltron, which I figured he would when they showed the silhouette of him with the Voltron name art. In assessing how I felt, I had to remember that this is a reboot, not a pick up where the original series left off. With that said, I am pretty excited to see how the show is going to pan out. The creative team behind the show is impressive with Lauren Montgomery (Superman/Batman Apocalypse), Joaquim Dos Santos (Avatar: The Last Airbender) and writer Tim Hedrick (The Legend of Kora) and those shows have done pretty well.

At the end of the day it’s just a screen shot, I think Voltron looks great with the modern twist, the story is still going to appeal to the diehards like me while also trying to appeal to the younger generation, which in my last article (which you can read here if you haven’t already) I stated that would be essential. Also, Playmates  teamed up with Voltron to make an epic toy line which I was really hoping for with the new series so things are looking positive. I can’t wait to see the footage fans are going to be shown at WonderCon this Friday. It’s going to be exciting

Review: Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs #1

LionForge-SaberRider1_COV

This week Lion Forge Comics, who recently have done comic books series based off of 1980’s television shows Punky Brewster, Knight Rider and Miami Vice are back at it mining 80s classics with the release of Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs. As a Voltron fanatic, I jumped at the opportunity to read and review this comic book. Now for those of you who don’t know, World Events Productions, the great people who introduced America to Voltron Defender of the Universe in 1982, brought the Japanese cartoon: Star Musketeer and Bismark and named it what we here in U.S. know it as. Saber Rider and The Star Sheriffs are made up of 5 characters: Saber Rider (Who is the team leader of the group), Fireball Hikari, Colt Wilcox, Commander Eagle (who is also the Commander of the Cavalry Command, who formed the Star Sheriffs) and lastly April Eagle. Together the pilot Ramrod (Voiced by Peter Cullen in the Original Show) and try and defeat the Outriders who are the main Villains or the series.

What’s nice is that Lion Forge Comics is trying to reintroduce Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs to people, especially the younger audience. I think it could work. The show has an interesting premise and the robot horses look really awesome! And they modernized the look while keeping it all very familiar to the original show, which is a breath of fresh air. A lot of the companies have a bad habit of when rebooting or reintroducing a show they mess with too many things. And Lion Forge so far has done a great job keeping true to the original.

Saber Rider takes place in the very distant future, Joshua Rider (Saber Rider) notices a security train has sent out a distress signal and so he goes to investigate. While Investigating, he runs into a bounty hunter named Colt who is also there looking to make some money which on the planet of Yuma is apparently hard to come by. After searching the train Colt and Saber Rider come across the Outriders and Jessie, who once was trained to become a Star Sheriff and went down the wrong path for reasons yet unknown. After a short battle Jessie and the rest of the Outriders disappear and Saber is forced to call April Eagle to come down to help with the investigation since she has been investigating the Outriders for a while and knows a lot about them. Colt has a machine that can help the Saber and April track down the Outriders, but wants to at a cost which does not go over well and is then deputized and made a member of the Star Sheriffs and the three of them go on to try and solve where they Outriders went and to try and capture them. At the end you see that Jessie is up to big things, but it’s not looking like it’s going to be easy for anyone involved.

I thought the story telling for a first issue was great, Mairghread Scott did an awesome job, but at the same time there were only a handful of characters to introduce in this first issue, we will see how the rest of the issues will pan out. I hope the writing doesn’t fade and get lost and lonely in a sea of comic books that never gets read, that would be horrible. The only criticism that I could give the writer is that for those new to the franchise I can see readers getting confused as to who Saber Rider is. Overall I would give the story line a 9 as I really did enjoy it.

The artwork done by Sendol Arts was awesome and detailed and definitely colorful. Everything looked futuristic but the suits worn by Saber Rider and April Eagle look great and on point with the original show, just a couple of tweeks to make it look a little more modern, which is really appreciated. As far as the artwork I will give it a ten. Everything was well done and you can tell a lot of time was put into the artwork

This series has a lot of potential. Anyone who is a fan of Voltron would find this very similar to read as the premises aren’t too far off. Young readers will like it because I think it can appeal to them. What’s not to like about some awesome looking law enforcers and their mechanical horses trying to stop the bad guys from doing bad guys things? Purchase your copy today. You won’t regret it.

Review: Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor Year Two #3

12D_2.3_Cover A

The Twelfth Doctor and Clara Oswald are back with more timey – whimey adventures in the 3rd part of this series. This time the setting is Scotland where there is a species of reptiles that are living on a remote Island off of Scotland. Clara, is being Clara and getting herself in trouble as she brings her students to this remote island which is against the school’s rules. She runs into these reptile creatures and runs into the Doctor as she’s trying to escape. The Doctor helps Clara and her students and bring them back to their school where they learn what is really going on earth and at the school.

The story line is pretty good. It flows there isn’t anything that does not make sense and thank fully I am fully versed in the world of the Doctor and his TARDIS. Robbie Morrison could have picked a better story line. I didn’t get gripped by it and ended up knowing what was going to happen, before it happens. Which I think is just natural of Doctor who anyways, we always know that somehow, someway the Doctor is going to get out of the Jam and save everyone. I don’t think a comic book series could do the Doctor any justice. Not enough pages to suck you in.

The Doctor Who format was made in a way to draw you in over an hour long of building a story that always makes you wonder if the Doctor and his companion are going to get themselves out of trouble and normally they do. But to try to do that in 30 or so pages just doesn’t work. I am going to stick to watching it on Netflix as opposed to reading it in a comic book

Rachel Scott on the other hand did a great job with the artwork. I think she could have been more detailed with Clara as she is probably one of the most beautiful women in all of time and space and the artwork with her does not do her justice. The Coloring by Ivan Nunes was dark and did not pop for me at all. Overall this comic wasn’t memorable for me which is a shame because I am a huge fan of Doctor Who. But I don’t think the show was ever meant to be turned into a comic book.

Review: Star Trek #55 The Legacy of Spock Part 1 of 4

StarTrek55-coverWhen I was reading through the list of comics coming out this past week and I saw Star Trek #55 I didn’t know that this was 1 of 4 in a series about the legacy of Spock. When I found out that it is, I got giddy. I grew up loving Star Trek, I use to watch re-runs with my father and I absolutely adored the half Vulcan/half Human and Leonard Nimoy was a perfect fit to play him. Sadly, Leonard Nimoy passed away a year ago. I remember at the time of his passing such sadness as if I lost a family member which may sound crazy, but I am a Trekkie and he had a prolonged effect on me. And maybe it was by design or by accident this is a great time for this series to come along in a way to honor Nimoy. Live Long And Prosper Leonard.

This series starts out after the crew the Enterprise led by newly named Captain Kirk defeated the war criminal know as Nero, who had destroyed the peaceful planet of Vulcan by creating a black hole in the middle of the planet by using red matter that was developed by Spock at the Vulcan Science Academy in an alternate timeline. Old Spock see’s young Spock and after a heart to heart Old Spock was going to try and find a suitable planet in which to start a new colony for the Vulcan Race.

In his journeys old Spock comes across his father who warns him that the surviving elders of Vulcan are not too please with him. Meanwhile, the Romulans are back at it again, talking about how they can be completely victorious over the Vulcan race even though there aren’t many of the left (talk about kicking a race, while they are still down). On a Klingon Prison Planet, a couple of men from Nero’s ship who somehow survived their ship being sucked back through a black whole and destroyed are coming up with a plan to try and finished what Nero started and back on Older Spock’s transport vessel Spock receives some terrible news about the fate of him and his Vulcan ancestry.

I thoroughly enjoyed this issue. As a Trekkie I have no problems with the story line and it flowed very nicely. It helps that Roberto Orci, who was a big part of the 2009 reboot of Star Trek oversaw the story line that is involved with this story since it ties in with the movies. Mike Johnson, overall did a great job with continuing Old Spock’s journey after the defeat of Nero

Artistically, this book was very detailed and amazing! Tony Shasteen and Davide Mastrolonardo did a great job in bringing the characters to life on paper. Everyone’s likeness was on point as well as the coloring it all fit and nothing visually looked out of place. I look forward to seeing more of their artwork through the remaining 3 books of the “Legacy of Spock.” If you’re a Trekkie, you are going to enjoy this book. If you are new to the Star Trek Universe, but are familiar with 2009 Star Trek movie reboot then you won’t be lost and you too will enjoy this book. I give it a must buy!

You Don’t Have To Have Super Powers To Be A Super Hero

dorian murry pic

“Four or five moments – that’s all it takes to become a hero. Everyone thinks it’s a full-time job. Wake up a hero. Brush your teeth a hero. Go to work a hero. Not true. Over a lifetime there are only four or five moments that really matter. Moments when you’re offered a choice to make a sacrifice, conquer a flaw, save a friend – spare an enemy. In these moments everything else falls away…” Colossus in Deadpool (2016)

On Tuesday March 8, 2016 Dorian J. Murray passed away at the age of 8-years old. For those of you who may not know who I am talking about Dorian and his family started the #D-STRONG campaign on twitter. Dorian was diagnosed at the age of 4 with a rare and untreatable form of pediatric cancer, alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma and a few months ago his cancer spread the fluid in his spine. Dorian knowing that he did not have much time left in this world wanted to remembered, but not just in his home state of Rhode Island, but the world and more specifically China. Word quickly spread about his wish and twitter went crazy trying to help make this young child’s wish come true! Even celebrities like Paula Abdul, Justin Bieber and even Captain Kirk himself William Shatner tweeted in support of Dorian and his family and eventually Dorian got his wish, his cause reached all the way to China! dorian murry 2

Now you may be asking yourself why I am writing this and what does this have to do with the world of geekdom? And my answer to you is this brave and courageous little boy is a Super Hero. He may have no powers, of billions of dollars to build fancy crime fighting equipment, but he does have to power to INSPIRE. Inspire kids just like himself who are facing the same struggles as he was day after day fighting to live another day. He inspires adults to remember that life is precious and to enjoy the small moments because we never know when it is going to be gone!

Dorians passing will not be the end of his 4 or 5 moments of being a hero. He will always be a hero. A hero to his family and friends. A hero to young children everywhere who are suffering every day with cancer or genetic diseases. And let’s not forget the unsung heroes. The Doctor and Nurses who work every day to help heal people, treat people and make people feel comfortable. I would like to say thank you to everyone who wakes up every day who sacrifice day in and day out to make this world a better place. You are all heroes.

Revisiting 1987’S Masters of The Universe. A Retrospective.

masters of the universe 2

On August 7, 1987 He-Man got his live action big screen debut with Masters Of The Universe starring Dolph Lundgren as He-Man and Frank Langella as Skeletor, Meg Foster (Evil-Lyn), Courtney Cox As (Julie Winston in her big screen debut), Chelsea Field (Teela), Jon Cypher (Man-At-Arms), Billy Barty (Gwildor) and James Tolkan (Detective Lubic). I was just about to turn four when this movie came to theaters and as a lot of kids during that time was huge fan of He-Man and the Masters of The Universe and my parents took me to see it and as the story goes I talked the whole time to everyone around me about He-Man and Skeletor and when the movie was over I cried because I missed most of the movie because of my talking.

Up until last week we could relive this fun movie through our good friends at Netflix (There will be no Netflix and chill here)! The film was part of the list of films that left the service on March 1. As I turned it on one thing struck me, I was 4 years old when this movie came out, I am now 32, which means this movie came out 28 years ago and now Courtney Cox is doing T.V. shows about her being a cougar! Anyways, for a movie that was made in 1987, the graphics were pretty good! The intro wasn’t grand, it was subtle and nice and made its point well.

Dolph Lundgren was a great choice to play He-Man, who was big, bulky and Blonde! Unfortunately, we don’t see Battle Cat in this movie which is unfortunate, I have always loved that character and they replaced Orko with Gwildor. I get it though, it is a movie adaptation of the cartoon, so it’s not going to be super accurate. A He-Man movie though, does have to have Teela and Man-At-Arm in it to be legit and Jon Cypher and Chelsea Field did a great job in their respective roles.

Frank Langella is an amazing actor and had a long carreer appearing in a lot of movies as well as stage theater before taking on the role of Skeletor. Langella did a great job of playing Skeletor. He wasn’t over the top and really made He-Man lovers hate him but not in a way they hate the acting, but in a we hope He-Man tears him a you know what. His Trusty Sidekick Evil-Lyn played by Meg Foster was spot on with her portrayal of Evil-Lyn. She was menacing and fearless and wicked which is the way was portrayed in the cartoon. I think the rest of the villain characters could have been better portrayed. The only villain I could recognize was Beast Man, Blade and Saurod, and they were all defeated pretty easily.

Courtney Cox had a major role in this movie. At the time she was a rising star who got noticed on in  the classic Bruce Springsteen music video for “Dancing in the Dark.” This was well before her star making role on Friends.

The one flaw? I think the movie could have done without most of it being set on Earth. Earth was never featured at all on Earth. The movie should have taken fully in place on Eternia.

Overall the movie had some great qualities and was entertaining. The graphics were amazing for it being premiered in 1987. For anyone who hasn’t seen this movie, please go on the Apple App store or the Google play store and download it or try to find it on Amazon.com. Everyone needs to see this movie at one point, especially younger kids who would likely be enamored by it.

First Thoughts on the Ghostbusters (2016) Trailer

Ghostbusters is back with a reboot of the original movie. This morning Sony Pictures released their first 2 minute trailer, 17 days after they released their teaser trailer back on February 15, 2016 and that can be seen here. The reboot stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth and will be in theaters on July 15, 2016.

My first reaction is not positive, I know this is just a trailer and it’s not indicative of how the movie is going to be once we finally sit down and see the whole thing. The animation of the ghosts looks too fake and with all the work in CGI and graphics in this day and age they could have made look a little more real and less cheesy.

One thing that I did see that I really liked is that they actually show the crew working on making the equipment which I think will be really cool and something that would have been great to see in the original films.

I also think the film is trying too hard to be funny and to make the audience laugh, but there is no need to make it seemed forced. A movie like this needs to have a balance of serious and funny to be a good film.

Overall I think it will be a decent film and when I do my review of the actual movie I am hoping it that it turns out to be a really great film.
