AfterShock Announces The HEathens Cullen Bunn, Heath Amodio, Sami Kivelä, Jason Wordie, and Simon Bowland

The Heathens #1

Writers: Cullen Bunn & Heath Amodio
Artist: Sami Kivelä
Colorist: Jason Wordie
Letterer: Simon Bowland
Cover: Sami Kivelä w/ Jason Wordie
Incentive Cover: Tony Harris
$4.99 / 32 pages / Color / 11.03.2021

When evil men and women escape from the depths of the eternal abyss, the Pirate Queen Lady Shih is sent to retrieve them. But when one of history’s most notorious killers breaks free, even she needs help. Enter the Heathens: Shih, Lucky Luciano, Bumpy Johnson, Sofia the Golden Hand, and Billy the Kid. From Hell they came to mete out a justice as dark as their own tormented souls.

From the wonderfully wretched imaginations of AfterShock horror-alum Cullen Bunn (EDEN, PIECEMEAL, DARK ARK) and Heath Amodio (SuperCLEAN), and illustrated by superstar Sami Kivelä (UNDONE BY BLOOD), in THE HEATHENS, evil meets its match – five of them, to be exact.

The Heathens #1

Review: Slay Bells

Slay Bells might not be the most original story but it’s still really entertaining. Add in a B-side that’s just weird and high price point and this is one that’s good but debatable if it’s worth the price.

Story: Zeb Wells, Eliot Rahal
Art: David LaFuente, Adam Pollina

Review: The Visitor #6

The Visitor #6

The Visitor pulls the trigger on tomorrow once and for all in the epic finale in The Visitor #6!

I’m sure the huge gap between the 4th and 5th issues hasn’t done The Visitor any favors at all. Before the pandemic shut things down, I recall enjoying the first five issues about as much as I would a lukewarm curry (believe it or not I don’t mind lukewarm curry – it still tastes just as good – but I’d much prefer it hot); unfortunately, the gap between issues has really sucked any momentum from the series. I couldn’t quite put my finger on what was going on when I read issue five, but with the final issue in the miniseries, I realize that I’ve become somewhat indifferent to the Visitor and his quest.

The Visitor #6 is written by Paul Levitz and features artist MJ Kim, colorist Ulises Arreola, and letterer Simon Bowland, and finds the Visitor and his new ally Agent Dauber trying to stop the malicious program from being created – for fans of Rai, it’s a nice nod to the origins of Father, though I feel the reveal of Dr. Silk as one of New Japan’s architects was stunningly underwhelming (not that I wasn’t surprised, because I had no idea, but because the reveal came from nowhere and if you haven’t been reading Valiant for sometime, then it will mean next to nothing to you). honestly at this point it felt like the story was written hastily to reveal that tidbit, and we’re all missing that entirely.

The Visitor #6 doesn’t quite end the story on a whimper because there’s a lot of action in the book, I’m just not invested enough in the story any more. Despite the comic revealing some key information about the Valiant Universe (namely Dr. Silk’s involvement with the creation of New Japan), it is far from required reading at this point in the game – and you can get the key information online (or even just in this paragraph). If you’re only going to buy one book from Valiant this month, don’t make it this one – search your LCS for Cullen Bunn’s Shadowman #1 instead if you really want to get into the publisher’s characters. Read it if you care how the story ends, but I wouldn’t recommend the series at this point.

Review: Sympathy For No Devils

The world’s largest Colossal has been murdered and Winston Wallis-the last human in a world of monsters-has been called in to solve it.

Sympathy For No Devils is an interesting mash-up of a detective story in a monster world.
