What Happens After You Save the World? Find Out in No One Left to Fight!

Since childhood, they’ve saved the world time and time again. But now, as adults, with their epic battles and confrontations behind them, what’s left for them? Writer Aubrey Sitterson and artist Fico Ossio are teaming up to answer that question in No One Left To Fight.

From the publisher that brought you Hellboy and Black Hammer comes a new globe-spanning story! Taking inspiration from classic manga and anime, No One Left To Fight is a tale of regret, resentment, and growing older as a team of heroes grapple with what their purpose is in a world that no longer needs their protection.

It’s a story about heroes that have their best years behind them and no time to make any meaningful course corrections. It’s a journey—an actual road trip—about regrets and facing the choices they made in their lives…with epic and over the top battles immersed in a colorful and bizarre world!” – Fico Ossio

Transformers vs. The Visionaries

Magdalene Visaggio (w) • Fico Ossio (a & c)

Cybertron has been invaded. The Transformers encounter unwelcome guests at the heart of their planet–and they may not have their hosts’ best interests at heart.

Refugees from another world, the Visionaries’ startling magical abilities could make them powerful allies… or dangerous enemies. It turns out there are some of each. When Virulina, leader of the Darkling Lords, discovers that the Transformers are vulnerable to magic, she uses that weakness to try and gain control of Cybertron! Leoric of the Spectral Knights teams up with Ironhide to stop her, but they quickly find themselves facing not just the Lords, but all of New Prysmos itself.

Review: Orphan Black: Crazy Science #1

In Orphan Black: Crazy Science #1, we find Cosima and Delphine being the most brilliant and adorably in love duo while trying to find a cure for 274 Leda clones. Writer Heli Kennedy manages to spend equal amounts of time setting up the current problem and showing the beauty of a loving relationship. Kennedy manages to showcase our heroes intelligence without relying on silly “smart girls” tropes. She also showcases their relationship without stooping to unrealistic or hyper-sexualized lesbian relationship tropes.

Artist Fico Ossio has a simplistic yet sleek art style, reminiscent of early Wynonna Earp comics, that keeps the focus on Cosima, Delphine and the Leda Clones and not their more feminine assets. Ossio is respectful and tender in his depiction of Cosima and Delphine’s relationship and romantic moments. He doesn’t linger on their curves of hold a panel two long on their tongues while they kiss, he treats them like people and not objects , which is refreshing.

The story takes the duo to Brazil , has them rewrite their love story, become more emotionally intimate and play super spy by following the car of a Leda Clone to remote area of Brazil. There isn’t a panel or word wasted and everything helps to move the story foreword with supreme precision. This issue was the definition of a page turner, from the beautiful soft art work to the meaningful romantic and, scientific bedside chats , this inaugural issue of the latest arc is amazing. It is well written, heavy but not convoluted and easy to follow , whether you’ve watched the show or not. Crazy Science could be an arc to suck you into the Orphan Black universe, or at least it could have been,

The only bad thing about this comic is that it ended on a stellar cliffhanger and we might not get to see what happens next. This issue might be the end, IDW preemptively cancelled the series due to low order numbers, so #2 and #3 might never see the light of day. Hopefully, word of mouth will get more people into the shops (preferably) or shopping on line and we can force their hand for the rest. The run was cancelled after the initial printing of issue #1 so, even though 2 and 3 were planned, they might never make it to see the light of day, which sucks because Crazy Science had the makings of one hell of a banger. I hope IDW changes their mind because, they were really on to something with this one.
