Ragnarök Vol. 3 Breaking of Helheim

SRP: $24.99

In the end, the gods gathered together and met their foes on the Battle Plain of Vigrid. There, so the stories say, the gods and their Great Enemies slaughtered each other, the stars fell from the sky, Midgard itself sank into the all-encompassing ocean, and the Nine Worlds were destroyed.

But not all the old stories are true. Thor survived as did most of the Enemies while the gods went down to defeat and the Nine Worlds became one vast land of desolation. Now, in his search for revenge, the last god standing hears the voice of one long dead and it sets him on a new course.

Walter Simonson, legendary creator of Star Slammers, Manhunter and the Alien film adaptation (with Archie Goodwin), and the definitive version (after Stan and Jack) of Marvel’s Thor, presents the next thrilling chapter of his own post-Ragnarök Thor saga!

The bold new vision of the Transformers universe that will excite longtime fans and new readers alike continues!

Crisis! The tether holding Cybertron’s inner moon to the planet has fallen and hundreds of lives have been lost. As the rubble is sorted through, the Ascenticons are on the move, hoping to leverage the situation and the lives lost in their favor. Meanwhile, the Rise, now under Megatron’s command, attempt to hide some of their most vicious members, but putting a bunch of killers in a single transport is never a good idea.

Plus, in response to the crisis at home, the Reversionist faction has fled Cybertron and the teachings of their leader have convinced them that the only way to return is to trigger Cybertron’s rebirth. But when the decision comes to Gauge, the youngest Cybertronian, will she spare the planet? And far away from Cybertron, Ultra Magnus has his own problems-namely, a group of sinister mercenaries on the hunt for Cybertronian artifacts.

Collects Transformers #19-24 and Transformers: Galaxies #7-12.

Review: Dungeons & Dragons: Infernal Tides

Dungeons & Dragons: Infernal Tides

The forces of evil are back in Baldur’s Gate and this time, they have some truly heinous stuff planned in Dungeons & Dragons: Infernal Tides. As they try to force the plane of Avernus into the more natural world, a group of heroes will need to rise up and stop them. A group with a good balance of skills. Possibly, one with a miniature giant space hamster. Yes, Minsc and company return to Baldur’s Gate to kick butts.

I feel that there is a lot to like about Dungeons & Dragons: Infernal Tides. It brings back Jim Zub and Max Dunbar. All the creative teams have knocked it out of the park but Zub is a bit more involved with the properties and it just shows in how these tales are delivered. Quickly, you know who is who and what they can do. We see the threat quickly and the story builds them up. But, the one thing I think that might be the most important is that when you have a cast like the one that Infernal Tides has, it’s important to craft their individual voices. Zub makes them feel like a true party and while a character like Minsc has such a strong, outstanding personality, he doesn’t drown everyone out.

Max Dunbar illustrates another great Dungeons & Dragons story. Paired with Sebastian Cheng, David Garcia Cruz, and Neil Uyetake, Infernal Tides features a lot of great character design and action sequences. I thought there was a really great 2-page splash in issue 2. As someone who has been reading these adventures since Evil At Baldur’s Gate, it’s good to have a colorist that I think is perfect for Max Dunbar’s art.

Ultimately, IDW Publishing does Dungeons & Dragons right. I’ve been really happy with all of the stories they’ve done but I do feel there’s something a bit more special, exciting and enjoyable about Jim Zub and Max Dunbar working on a tale set in Baldur’s Gate. Dungeons & Dragons: Infernal Tides ends up as another truly enjoyable tale of Minsc and company that’s sure to keep fantasy readers enthralled.
