Mr. Peabody and Sherman
Based upon the sketch from ROCKY AND HIS FRIENDS, MR. PEABODY AND SHERMAN is a series of comics that works as a sort-of sequel to the motion picture, MR. PEABODY AND SHERMAN. This trade paperback brings …

Red Sonja #4 (Ongoing)
It’s been said many times before – and by those far more eloquent than I – that what matters most in life is not how many times you’re knocked down but that you get back up.  …
Star Wars Legacy II: Volume 1: Prisoner of the Floating World
Occasionally, I have a minor disagreement with others I know who do what I do and pen criticism online.  Their opinion is that, as writers, we always have to maintain the ability to dissect a work …

Red Sonja #3 (Ongoing)
Fire and ice.  When I think of Red Sonja, I’ve always thought of fire and ice.  If you’ll bear with me for a moment whilst I wax somewhat poetically, then I think you’ll understand.  …
Star Wars: Darth Vader and the Ninth Assassin
Think what you may, but I’ve always believed that Darth Vader is one of the most interesting characters in all of movie fiction.  Why?  Well, it could be primarily because he’s such …

Red Sonja #2 (Ongoing)
As the song goes, “sisters are doing it for themselves.”  There’s always been some unspoken camaraderie between the fairer sex --- they’ll band together to protect one another …
Warlord Of Mars: Dejah Thoris #7
Don’t think me a prude, but methinks I’ve figured out why so many fanboys approach this particular WARLORD OF MARS title with such reverence, such fondness, and such acclaim: at times, it’s …

X - Volume 1: Big Bad
There are some individual comic book titles that for personal reasons I just can’t handle reviewing on a month-by-month basis.  It isn’t that I don’t feel I have any relevant to …
reviewed Tomb Raider #01. March 11
Tomb Raider #01
I’m not a gamer.  Never have been.  Probably never will be.  It isn’t that games don’t interest me.  Rather, it’s just that – in many cases – it …
Star Wars: Darth Vader and The Cry of Shadows (Part 03 of 05)
Some tales get told quickly.  In part, that’s because the quality or the interest is perhaps so high that the writer can’t wait to get it all out, to put it in front of an audience, and …
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 …
reviewed Star Wars #014 (Ongoing). March 08
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 …
reviewed Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #6. February 28
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 …
reviewed Red Sonja #1 (Ongoing). February 26
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 …
reviewed Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #5. February 13
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 …
