Check Out Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye’s Spotify Playlist

DC Comics has tipped us off as to the official Spotify playlist for Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye Vol. 1: Going Underground, curated by Jon Rivera and Michael Avon Oeming! The new playlist coincides with the release of the debut collected edition for the new series from DC’s Young Animal, curated by My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way. Rivera and Oeming’s playlist is an eclectic mix of classic rock, electronic jams and punk that’s almost as trippy as the book itself.

The playlist matches the books many moods, including Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd for Wild Dog, Creedence Clearwater and Moonage Daydream—it’s all here.

Cave Carson is an absurdist action-adventure story unlike any other!

Cave Carson has done it all: survived countless adventures below the Earth’s surface, met the love of his life, and gotten a cybernetic eye…somehow. Now, newly widowed, Cave tries to piece his life back together when a knock on the door of his secret underground lab pulls him back into a past that he and Eileen thought they had left buried deep within the Earth.

In these tales from issues #1-6, Cave must determine if his recent hallucinations are the work of his mind or his mysterious cybernetic eye. (Spoiler: It’s the eye.)

Samurai Jack Returns To Comic Books With A Quantum Twist

Jack is back! Samurai Jack, that is, and he’s making his grand return to comics, courtesy of writer Fabian Rangel Jr. and artist Warwick Johnson Cadwell. Hot off the heels of the critically acclaimed Helena Crash, the pair are re-teaming for a bold new take on the iconic samurai.

The story, entitled “Quantum Jack,” sees Jack like we’ve never seen him before. After getting zapped by an experimental Quantum Ray, Jack is sent hurtling into one alternate reality after another, his memories erased, but his spirit intact. Can you imagine Jack as the leader of a ruthless biker gang of bounty hunters? Thanks to the warped minds of Rangel Jr. and Cadwell, you don’t have to. They’ve done it for you! And that’s just the beginning…

 

In addition to Cadwell’s highly stylized art giving Samurai Jack fans a different, yet familiar, spin on the character, artists Michael Avon Oeming, Alexis Zirritt, and Samurai Jack creator Genndy Tartakovsky, will all be providing cover art for the debut issue.

IDW’s acclaimed history of publishing high-octane Samurai Jack comics will resume this September as a new chapter emerges from the time stream and new versions of Jack with it!

Cave Carson has a cybernetic eye! Or, more accurately, he had one. After the fallout with the Whisperer and his cult in issue #6, the eye has run amok-and it’s up to Cave and the rest of Team Carson to find it. What’s that cognizant ocular computer chasing, anyhow?

Review: Aleister and Adolf HC

22835

Media theorist Douglas Rushkoff weaves a mind-bending tale of iconography and mysticism. During the Second World War, the legendary occultist Aleister Crowley develops a powerful and dangerous new weapon in the conflict against the Axis powers. But this unconventional new form of warfare could cast the world into Armageddon!

Magic, sex, and war. While Aleister & Adolf does merge both fiction and nonfiction, it identifies more with fiction than anything else. Despite the shortness of the book, it does take a little while to read as the plot is decently complex. If you have any interest in the strange nature of history, I would suggest you check this out.

The black and white color scheme was a surprise, yet it works really well for the book in my opinion. The choice manages to focus more on the occult and sexual elements in the story, then anything else and enhances the art by Michael Avon Oeming. I will admit the sexual scenes are graphic and well drawn, but it’s good to get a heads up for that just in case you’re not comfortable with that. That gets really interesting considering the war is toned down for the most part.

Manga Monday: Attack on Titan Anthology

aot_anthology_nycc-450x675The manga megahit Attack on Titan, reinterpreted by some of comics’ top talent! Featuring original stories by a long roster of comic superstars such as Scott Snyder, Gail Simone, Faith Erin Hicks, Michael Avon Oeming, Paolo Rivera, Cameron Stewartand Babs Tarr!

This unprecedented, full-colour collaboration between East and West will be released first in English, making it indispensable for Attack on Titan fans and curious comic fans.

When it comes to Attack on Titan my only real exposure to the series was watching the horrendous live action film that came out. I haven’t watched the anime and I haven’t read the manga, but when I heard the Attack on Titan Anthology was coming out, I made sure to grab a copy during New York Comic Con. If I was going to buy it, might as well go with the limited edition cover.

While this anthology isn’t a traditional way to be introduced, it was an interesting one as a who’s who of Western creators tackle this manga phenomenon. And what’s nicer is that each creator gave it their own spin sticking to their style of storytelling and moving the settings of the stories around for different situations and locations.

This is an eclectic mix in a good way with stories that seem to stick to a setting and story that you’d see in the manga series while other creators went with a complete break. There’s horror. There’s humor. There’s action. There’s a little of everything and it’s all enjoyable in its own way.

What’s really interesting to me is recognizing the creators based on their entries. I read the entire graphic novel in one sitting and played guess the creator as I went along creating a fun little game and each creator really does bring their own style. So, if you’re a fan of the folks’ work, you’re probably going to enjoy this.

I knew so little about the world and what to expect going in other than the creative talent lined up, but coming out of it, I want to check out more. If you’re interested in finding out a bit about Attack on Titan, but don’t want to take the chance on manga, this is a solid way to go to find out a bit more about what it’s all about.
