Star Wars: Darth Vader and the Cry of Shadows (Part 02)
In the STAR WARS Universe, something as simple as being a clone can get you killed.  From what we know, these clones were manufactured to essentially serve a sole purpose: the maintenance of an Empire.  …
King Conan: The Hour of the Dragon (Part 06 of 06)
I’ve long had one major gripe with the comics industry, and it boils down to this: if you’re going to dish out a tale, then do readers the courtesy of dishing it out completely.  Some …
King Conan: The Hour of the Dragon (Part 05 of 06)
Sometimes the difference between the heroic and the fallen amounts to little more than this one simple truth: the heroic tend to – more often than not – benefit from encountering allies in …
King Conan: The Hour of the Dragon (Part 04 of 06)
One of the developments that can make an interesting character even more exciting is when he behaves in some manner either contradicting his nature or that knowingly increases his own jeopardy in any …
King Conan: The Hour of the Dragon (Part 03 of 06)
Fact: if it was easy, everybody would do it.  Yes, that’s also true for being a ‘king.’  I’m not speaking about a ‘king’ of greater pomp and circumstance.  …
King Conan: The Hour of the Dragon (No. 02 of 06)
Created by Robert E. Howard, Conan is probably the writer’s most revered creation.  There have been scores of adaptations done to Howard’s few original tales, as well as hundreds of new …
The Terminator: Enemy of My Enemy #1
One of my longstanding complaints with the greater portion of sci-fi fandom is that the Terminator as a franchise has never really been given the treatment it deserves.  Now, to be fair, some of …

Veil #1 (of 5)
One of the things I’ve always found particularly fascinating about this merry fusion of art and prose that is the graphic storytelling industry is how artists and writers clearly have to work together …

Star Wars #014 (Ongoing)
With as many tales that have already been spun in the entire STAR WARS Universe, how does Dark Horse do it?  How do they keep upping the ante with each new issue of the STAR WARS title being penned …

Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #6
Earlier this morning, I dig a post for one of my ongoing blogs regarding the history of science fiction.  In it, I wrote a snippet about how sci-fi has always embraced scantily clad women in one …

Red Sonja #1 (Ongoing)
As one who’s read comics for over forty years, I’ve had some dealing with Red Sonja.  She always seemed a bit of an orphan to me – a female warrior happier roaming the lands looking …
Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris, Volume 1
Playing in a world created by George Lucas – like Dark Horse Comics has done with its STAR WARS line for over two decades – is one thing.  Basically, you’re taking an artistic property …

Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #5
There are truths at the heart of every epic battle.  First, all involved must know what’s at stake.  Typically, it’s something intangible like freedom or liberty or the pursuit of …

Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #4
Science fiction has a long history with ‘cheese.’  I’m not talking about camp.  I’m talking (really) about skin.  Flesh.  Lady parts.  Think Barbarella …
reviewed Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #3. February 13
Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #3
So long as DEJAH THORIS remains in its present format – that being delivering action and glitz and glamor with ceaseless abandon – then I suspect, as a regular title, it’ll find its …
reviewed Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #2. February 13
Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #2
So much of 90’s fandom was absolutely ruled by XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS.  I’m certainly not saying that the mythology-fueled camp program was to everyone’s sensibilities, but I thought …
reviewed Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #1. February 12
Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #1
One has to be careful when tinkering with legends.  After all, legends are often called a part of our cultural consciousness, our modern mythology.  There’s something wrapped up – …

Sunset
Not long back, I discovered a terrific printed collection of what was termed ‘Geezer Noir.’  The skinny is that these were stories about the old and restless – bitter, angry, jaundiced …

Furious #1
I miss John Ritter.  For those of you who don’t know who he was, John Ritter was an actor who largely appeared in television sitcoms and comedies, though he did have a modest film career. …

Monsters! And Other Stories
I happen to be one of the most enthusiastic movie fans on the planet Earth today.  Seriously, I think I’ve found something worthwhile in just about everything I’ve seen, but the one area …

Pariah, Volume 1
I’ve always personally found that the best science fiction – that which remains truest to the themes only the greatest sci-fi authors usually explore – is those tales told of a time …

Star Wars #11 (Ongoing)
The reason we, as a society, tend to root for an underdog is because we’ve been there.  We know all too well what it feels like to be facing insurmountable odds.  We’re familiar …

Star Wars #10 (Ongoing)
One of the significant characteristics that differentiates the Original Trilogy from the Prequel Trilogy is the direct presence of evil.  To understand this succinctly, look at the character of Darth …

Star Wars #9 (Ongoing)
STAR WARS was never centrally about politics.  Sure, the Prequel Trilogy firmly established what politics were at play; and even the Original Trilogy hinted at the politics of the past and present …

Kids.  Like women, you can’t live with ‘em.  You can’t live without ‘em.  When I was a young’un, it was all I could do to keep myself interested.  I never …
