Hi thunder scorpion here. The best comics of 2010 post I had planed on making is taking me longer then I expected, so in the mean-time I thought I’d post a new set of comic reviews.
GUERILLAS VOL 1
I read the first four issue’s of this comic back when it was with Image comics and I was disappointed when I heard that new issue’s would not be made, but instead that there would be a TPB and that the book would come out at a different company this time called Onipress. The comic itself starts with an introduction by Jackson Publick the creator of the venture brothers animated tv show, where he explains why the comics creator Brahm Revel was not able to work on the comic because he was working on the show, but it would appear that Brahm now has some time on his hands and will be continuing his comic projects. The Guerillas comics story starts off with the main character private John Clayton on his first patrol in Vietnam, but as he witness the horrors of war he begins reminiscing his past and starts to regret his reason of going to war for the purpose of pleasing his father, but the fighting becomes intense as the vietcong ambushes his platoon and private John is left as the lone survivor of the attack with the vietcong advancing towards him things look bleak when suddenly a platoon of chimpanzees armed with m16’s and dressed in US military fatigues attacks the vietcong and save’s him. At first John is terrified of the creatures in particular the group’s ape leader named Goliath, but luckily John find’s a place for himself in this odd platoon as cigaret lighter for these apparently smoking ape’s meanwhile a Dr Heisler readys his lab experiment baboon named Adolf and gathers a team of marines to go deep into Vietnam with him in search of his twin brother and his Guerilla secret weapons. I loved this comic when I read it a few years ago and I still love it now the action was intense the story was fantastic and the art was amazing all that plus its ape’s with machine gun’s what more could you ask for I give it.

BALTIMORE THE PLAGUE SHIPS #2
This issue continues with Lord Baltimore and Vanessa after having escaped from jail finding a ship’s crew willing to take them to Livorno while aboard Vanessa ask’s lord Baltimore why he hunts the one vampire in particular and the horrorable scene’s of his past are shown as we learn that Lord Baltimore was once a soldier and that while in the army he once went on a night attack where his whole company was killed and he was shot in the leg and left for dead amidst the body’s of his fallen comrades when suddenly a flock of gigantic vampire bats surrounds him and starts feasting on dead body’s when one bat closes in on him and Lord Baltimore cut’s its face with a bayonet getting one of its eyes in the process, but the vampire bat grabs him and breathes something into his leg before flying off with the other bats and later Lord Baltimore awakes in a hospital to find one of his legs amputated and the issue ends with him being disturbed at night in bed when he see’s the sacred faced vampire in his room. Great comic the battle scene with Lord Baltimore and the vampire bat was master full I give this ( 8 out of 10).
This issue begins with Rasl emerging from a swirling ball of light caused by the amazing machine he strapped on previously. Once he recovered from his painful trip he discovers that he has arrived in the parallel world where he was first attacked by his girlfriend Annie’s killer the strange faced man. While checking out the parallel world’s town he reminisces about the past and we learn that two years ago Rasl along with his friend and partner named Miles and his wife Maya who he was secretly cheating with where working on a project to create an incredible machine based on concepts pioneered by Nikola Tesla. Later in the present Rasl visits the lab where he once worked at in the parallel world and meets this worlds Maya. After this chance encounter he arrives at his girlfriends house and spy’s on the Annie that lives in this parallel world when suddenly from a distance he see’s the strange faced man kick down her door gun drawn with the intent to kill Annie again and the issue ends with the strange face man taking a strange machine like the one Rasl has from the trunk of his car and using it to get transported to another parallel world as Rasl tells Annie to get somewhere safe and straps on his machine and goes after him.

The issue start’s off with the littlest zombie scrounging around in search for food when he discovers a dead human body and trys to feast on it, when he has his find stolen away from him by a huge fat zombie and a truck with survivors in it. Suddenly it crashes into the side of a building. As the survivors run inside they take a water purifier with them that they intended to bring back to their camp for the other survivors, but as they hold out inside the building the big fat zombie walks into the doorway and they shot out its knee caps making the fat zombie a fleshy corps barricade while inside we learn that one of the survivors is responsable for the groups problems by having messed up their mission by staying longer in order to get himself drugs and we learn that another survivor in the group is actually a marauder spy and as they discuss whether or not to sell out their friends back at the camp to the marauders a crowd of zombies outside begin to tunnel thru the fat zat zombie barricade and a group of survivors shows up in a vehicle from the camp after having heard their talk of betrayal over a radio that the group thought wasnt working so the spy sets off a grenade and most of the group sacrifices themselfves by throwing themselfves over the water purifier and the grenade saving the survivor camp for certain death and leaving only drug user guy left alive that is until the littlest zombie eats him and the issue ends with the Littlest zombie finally enjoying a proper zombie feast ( 7 out of 10)
