In Shops: Jan 29, 2020
SRP: $4.99

Beyond the edge of creation lies the Black Stair. And beyond it, amidst the void, he waits. Mol Uhltep, the Last God. This is the tale of those who claimed to slay him, and the world they doomed with their lies.

With the wraith of King Tyr and Mol Uhltep hot on her trail, and the Last God’s foul curse worsening, Queen Cyanthe must rally her surviving allies within the walls of the Guild Eldritch’s newly restored stronghold, the Pinnacle, and convince them to join her on her quest to travel past the edge of creation once more and do what she could not 30 years ago: kill the Last God, Mol Uhltep, once and for all.

In the past we watch as young Tyr and the first fellowship delve into the depths of the very same fortress 30 years earlier, where they uncover a terrible secret guarded by the dead. It will change the course of their lives forever…assuming they can survive.

Review: Marvel Zombies: Resurrection #1

Marvel Zombies: Resurrection #1

Zombie stories have been done to death. Genre mash-ups were all the rage for a while and in recent months, superheroes + zombies is back as a thing. Marvel Zombies: Resurrection #1 returns the popular concept of Marvel heroes dealing with zombies and does so with a fun spin on it.

Horror stories can run the gamut and features so many genres and subgenres. Zombie stories too feature so many different spins on the same concept. Writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson delivers a debut issue that feels like it’s a study of what works with the genre and runs with it.

Marvel Zombies: Resurrection #1 doesn’t as much a zombie story as it does Alien. Like that classic film, there’s a tension build as our heroes explore the husk that is Galactus’ body. We know they’re going to discover something horrible, it’s just a question of what and when. Johnson nails those beats well until the final chapter of the first issue when all hell breaks loose. The comic goes from Alien to the chaotic scenes of 28 Days/Weeks Later.

That tension in the debut issue is helped by the art team. Leonard Kirk is joined by Guru e-FX on color and Travis Lanham‘s lettering. It’s easy to go over the top as far as gore when it comes to zombie stories. Instead, the team keeps the details there but you need to look for them. Intestines spill out but not in an over the top fashion. Instead, it’s subtlely done in the middle of the chaotic battle. There’s also an interesting amount of detail that has you looking for clues as to what might have happened. It adds to that tension the narrative builds.

The issue is a solid debut perfect for the Halloween season. It has some beats that are familiar but that’s part of the fun. This takes what works from horror and the zombie genres and blends it together with the superhero genre. It all comes together for a debut that I want to immediately want to read more of.

Phillip Kennedy Johnson and Paco Diaz Take Ghost Recon to the Breakpoint

In January 2020, IDW Publishing debuts Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint: Blind Prophets, a five-part comic book miniseries about the world’s most elite US Special Operations Forces, the Ghosts, protagonists of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon military tactical shooter video games by Ubisoft.

Written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson and illustrated by Paco Diaz, this never-before-seen chapter of the Ghost Recon saga pits the Ghosts against a mysterious Sudanese warlord with shocking ties to their own elite team!

Bridging the gap between the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint storylines, this mission forces Nomad and Colonel Cole D. Walker to question everything they thought they knew about the Ghosts.

The first issue of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint: Blind Prophets will be available in three cover editions: Cover A by Paco Diaz, Cover B by Andrea Mutti, and a retailer incentive Nomad Game Variant.
