The second arc of the ongoing series about what happens after a prophecy is completed begins with Destiny, NY #6.

Destiny, NY #6

Destiny, NY is Coming from Black Mask Studios

What if there was a magical prophecy that you were destined to save the world, and you fulfilled it so young you don’t know what to do with the rest of your life?    

That’s the problem facing Logan McBride in Destiny, NY, the ongoing comic book series launching in March 2021 from Black Mask Studios. Together, writer Pat Shand, artist Manuel Preitano, and cover artists Elisa Romboli and Rosi Kämpe have created a grounded story about the magic of young adulthood, star-crossed modern romance, delayed coming of age, and finding your place in a world too busy to notice you.

In Destiny, NY, Logan grew up a “prophecy kid” attending the elite NYC boarding school DESTINY, NY for children with magical prophecies. At twelve years old, she faced down a cataclysmic crisis and rescued the entire planet… but hardly anyone even knows what she did, and since then she’s been directionless. There’s no prophecy for what Logan is supposed to do with the rest of her life… she’s having a midlife crisis despite being in her 20s. But when Logan falls for Lilith, the estranged daughter of a mystical crime family, their new love puts the entire school in jeopardy.

Destiny, NY #1 is a special double-sized issue and will feature a special, limited edition cover by Terry Moore.

Review: Spooky Girls: Tarantula Twins #1

Spooky Girls: Tarantula Twins #1

Growing up, you tend to be drawn to people who you have something in common with. You may have interests that they do and vice versa.I’m still friends with everyone I grew up with. As we get older sometimes we lose touch but we always find each other again. As I get older, this cable tow of friends has grown exponentially.

When you go to high school, this is typically your first exposure to the class system. This is when you first see how people climb the social ladder while others find their own way. In the debut issue of Spooky Girls: Tarantula Twins, we find two siblings whose bond is tested once the social rigors of high school come into play.

Tawny and Temple Tarantula are a set of twins whose love for each other is tougher than it looks. That’s until they start to grow up and the differences between them become even more apparent. We finally see the girls as they turn 17. Tawny has become a bit of a bad apple and her smoking habits have started to annoy Temple who is a bit of a nerd and is secretly working on a formula for synthetic Euphoria. When Tawny’s friends find out, they steal her only bottle of the formula and try to get inebriated from this. From there’s it’s lessons on sisterhood and friendship.

Writer Pat Shand and company more than prove with this comic just how their storytelling skills can transcend any age group. The story by Shand is relatable, funny, and heartfelt. The art by the creative team is soulful and complements the story. Altogether, a comic that will make you remember that loves conquers all.

Review: Prison Witch Vol. 1 The Feral

Prison Witch Vol. 1 The Feral

It’s one of those experiences in our lives when we “meet our tribe.” Many of us who grew up hiding who we were, scared of how we would be perceived if people knew our certain quirks, our deepest desires, and love of everything geek, made many of us ostracized. It’s true that the late great Stan Lee made the world of comic books more accessible but he didn’t quite make it mainstream. It took years after that, with an influx of superhero movies, when it became something more than acceptable. It was the new normal.

I remember the first time I met like-minded people. It was in high school. Me and my friends bonded over our love for Hip Hop. Our conversations would go on for ours pontificating on the importance of rhymes over beats, the complexity of certain emcee’s flows, and the content of certain songs and their deeper meanings. I wondered how it would be for someone to find their tribe but find out that they are more than they ever thought of themselves. In Amy Shand and Pat Shand’s elegantly told Prison Witch, we meet a protagonist whose life changes dramatically in many ways when she goes to prison.

In the comic, we meet Cameron. She’s on day 34 of a 5-year jail sentence. Her acclimation to prison life is less than welcoming. This changes when she meets Tanya, who senses that Cameron is more than another inmate. A scuffle with another inmate unleashes what some believe is a demon but is the powers of a witch and catches the eye of the local troublemaker, Bean. Eventually, we’re introduced to a coven, a group of witches also in jail. They have to subdue their abilities to keep themselves safe and each has their own dark secrets.

Overall, a comic that feels like if Orange Is The New Black met Charmed. That combines and becomes something even more beautiful and twisted. The story by the Shands is heartfelt, intellectual, and beautiful.  The art by D’Urso, Campbell, and Lee is breathtaking and striking. Altogether, a story that thrives beyond genres and gives the reader a great story.
