Hi Thunderscorpion here the Art Show was a bust I was unable to go because of unforeseen circumstances, the next one is in March maybe I’ll be able to catch it then. On the bright side I recently got a package that contained Battle Royale on Blue Ray, It was awesome I even got my older sister to watch it and she liked it which is unusual, she doesn’t topically like what I’m in to. The manga is so much more violent as hard as that is to believe, Any ways enjoy the reviews.

I love Ricardo Delgado’s works and I think I’d be awesome if he did A Age of Reptiles comic featuring prehistoric Sea creatures, Just A thought if anyone is in contact with him maybe suggest it wink wink nudge nudge. I give this issue ( 8 out of 10 ).

Berserk movie 2

Berserk movie 2

Deltora Quest Anime

Deltora Quest Anime

Hi Thunderscorpion here, I saw the second Berserk movie Battle for Doldrey I was disappointed it was like watching Berserk in on fast forward and there were times when the CG was stiff and they cut too much of the story I really think the old anime is better I hate when they use flash backs without any contexts for people who didn’t watch the older anime or read the Manga I can image them being very confused. I’ll watch the next Berserk movie Descent, but if things don’t slow down and get better than I may drop the movies all together. I’ve been watching the Deltora Quest anime lately, only the English Sub version I hate the dub of this anime with a passion. I actually like the anime better than the manga, the anime is much better righted then the manga, but the Book is better than both. I really enjoy these reviews and I hope you will too.


Rasl #14
The issue starts with Rasl and agent crow in a heated discussion about the Tesla journals when Sal shoots at Rasl and miss. Adams orders her men to arrest Sal, but Sal suddenly kills her and her men instead as Rasl use’s his machine to escape to a parallel world. Meanwhile, Rasl dust himself off and call’s Uma asking her to meet him at Lucky’s Bar when they both arrive and Rasl orders a drink, but he suddenly interrupted when Sal walks in gun’s blazing as everyone duck’s for cover and Rasl quickly gets the drop on Sal tying him up and leaving him in the Bar’s freezer. The issue end’s with Rasl and Uma driving out into the desert as they park in a secluded location and share a passionate kiss and a certain little creepy girl appears looking in through their window. Why didn’t Rasl just kill Sal when he had the chance. Also that creepy girl is so cool always showing up at random. ( 8 out of 10 )

Age of Reptiles: The Hunt #1
The issue begins with a mother and child dino lounging underneath a seemingly unstable rock formation when a trio of horned carnivores attacks them and the mother dino is killed, but the young one is able to escape. Several session’s later the young dinosaur has grown and is still being hunted by the same pack of horned carnivores when the chase leads the pursued dino, which I’ll be calling the Red carnivore from now on for account of its looks, hides inside the corp.’s of a large dead dinosaur, and I though they smelt bad on the outside…. meanwhile, he takes off as the horned dinos start eating his hiding place and after running though the desert and eating a few small blue dinos with a taste for tongue, must be French…. the red carnivore takes in some well needed rest before wakening up surrounded by the horned dinos, when suddenly the ground beneath them caves in and they fall into an underground cavern. the issue ends with the Red carnivore discovering a light in the tunnel as the horned dinos crowd him from behind causing them all to fall out off a ledge and into a canyon river below. so far the first Age of Reptiles comic is still the best, but this was great too. ( 8 out of 10 )

Baltimore: The Curse Bells #5
The story continues with the bells having been rung and the towns people having been turned into mindless zombies as Lord Baltimore is curiously unaffected by the curse and is able to strike down the Barbarian’s feathered servant as he then fights his way through the halls of Vampire Nuns before it is revealed that the Barbarian man is the incarnation of Hitler or something like that, as he exclaims his aspirations for conquest and it finally becomes clear to the tainted Nuns that his promise to cure them was a lie so they seek their redemption in feasting on his flesh. Elsewhere Haigus and Blavatsky from a kind of alliance before Baltimore arrives and Haigus turn’s into A Bat and flees. Then Baltimore frees MR. Hodge from his cell as he cleverly avoided the effects of the curse by plugging his ears, they bear witness to the vampire Nuns as they let them self’s burn in the sun light reduced to ash and the issue ends with Lord Baltimore and MR. Hodge parting ways as the Inquisitor later revisits the convent and seeks MR. Hodge for Questioning. ( 8 out of 10 ).

Hi Thunderscorpion here happy new year I saw the Hobbit movie the other day it was great and I’ve got a side project coming up Jan,19 I made some art for an art exhibit, crossing my fingers if my art sell’s well then all be buying lot’s more comics I might post a few pic’s of my art if thing’s work out. also I’m waiting on a few orders I placed on christmas that still haven’t gone though when they arrive I plan on making a Christmas Haul Post, to show case the Comic’s I got this holiday season. I’ve watched an Anime called Bare Foot Gen sence my last post it’s the most horrific anime I’ve ever seen like a terrible nightmare it made my stomach turn it’s in my opinion more tragic than even Grave of the Fireflies a similar anime in theme, but the message that the story conveys is plain and clear, War is Hell I just wish that all those War mongerer’s out there could see this movie and under stand what it really means to nuke another country and it’s people, and not take it so lightly and to show a little humanity. Well, enough of my sermon onto the reviews.

The Stuff of Legend: The Toy Collector #1

The issue begins with Monty inscribing the history of the toys arrival and Max the bear’s rise to power on the walls of a cave as Anya the tiger appears letting her distaste for Max’s regime be known. whilst elsewhere, two of the Boogeyman’s reluctant minions are given their order’s as part of the Boogeyman’s dastardly plans. Meanwhile, the toys master and his companion the Boogeyman in disguise are joined by Fillmore the former mayor of the town of hopscotch. Elsewhere the group of  toys encounter one of the Boogeyman’s minion’s the Toy Collector at work gathering the fallen toys from the battle at the ruined zoo. Back in the jungle Max the bear is unhappy with his rule as the other animal tell stories and discusses their past king the Lion and his tragic demise.

Age of Reptiles #4

The issue begins with the deinonychus pack staking a large ultrasaurs while in a desert wasteland littered with dino bones when the ultrasaurus suddenly collapses out of exhaustion and the deinonychus encounters an odd gang of mixed dino’s as seen on the cover of the issue and a fight is triggered between two of the deinonychus ending with quetzal as the new pack leader later the Deinonychus pack returns to their nest nestled a top a cliff and the action reaches its climax as the entire Tyrannosaur pack strikes on the nest and an epic battle takes place between the two carnivore packs ending with the cliff top nest collapsing kill all, but the Tyrannosaur Long Jaw, and the issue ends with Long Jaw returning to its nest to find it’s only surviving egg being eaten by a prehistoric primate looking more like a dear in the head lights. ( 9 out of 10 ) I liked this Age of Reptiles series best and I am looking forward to reading Age of Reptiles: The hunt next.  Also I’d like to see the mixed gang of Dinosaurs on the cover of this issue get their own spin-off. P.S the look on that critters face was priceless.

Baltimore: The Curse Bells #4

The issue begins with the inquisitor finishing up his torture of the young couple that was spying on him when he is surprised to find that the young woman has survived his torturing and so he brings her limp battered body back into town meanwhile Baltimore escapes from his cell leaving MR Hodge behind as he seem more concerned with his vengeance then the saving of the towns people from the curse bells. Elsewhere the inquisitor returns the tormented girl to her family as they receive her and submit with hatred for the twisted supposed servant of God. Back at the convent Lord Baltimore helps a cursed Nun to repent her sin and end her wicked existence as MR Hodge prepares for the worst in plugging his ears so that he might not hear the dreaded sound of the curse bells. The issue ends with lord Baltimore fighting his way to the bells before cutting their line just as Blavatsky starts to play leaving us with an unsettling cliffhanger as to whether or not Lord Baltimore has saved the day in time. ( 8 out of 10 )

Battle For The Planet of The Living Dead #1

The issue begins with a pretentious news reporter commenting on some reports of zombie activity with a less than believing audited as the story’s main character an overly optimistic man named Adams cheerfully make his way to work but suddenly a ship crash-lands and mobs of zombies come pouring out as Adam and his co-worker runs  for their lives and the security team arrives just in time to save them, but the security team’s fire line is quickly over run and Adam pulls a woman soldier out of the grasp of a zombie as they nearly escape atop a gigantic crane before burning the zombie horde with molten hot metal. The issue ends with more ships crash landing no doubt full of zombies leaving the door open for a possible continuation of the story. ( 7 out of 10 )

Fubar Vol 2

When I first reviewed Fubar Volume 1  I sort of just rated each short on a scale of one to ten only expanding further on my favorite parts which at the time I thought was understandable considering how may comic short there are in each volume but looking back now I think it was a copout so now with volume two I’m going to attempt to review each and every comic short this volume has to offer starting with.

Steady As She Goes

The first short comic collected in this volume is about the Enola Gay Bomber crew mission it made me think and had a good twist ( 7 out of 10 ).

Semper Fi

Had an interesting set up about a marine looking for supplies for his wounded friend, but the ending could have been better ( 7 out of 10 ).

The Jisei of Tsuyoshi Mukai

A story about a Japanese officer meting his end, the art was to cartoony for my taste and the ending was a little weak ( 5 out of 10 ).

Second Wind

Shows us what happens when a Kamikaze pilot is zombified ( 7 out of 10 )

Fat Boy And The Little Man

Features the marines using a couple of armored zombies to take out a Japanese held hill. ( 7 out of 10 )

No Guts, No Glory

The story of a Gashia’s murderous rampage at a Japanese brothel ( 5 out of 10 )

Banzai Washout

The story of a Japanese Major and his creative method of ritual suicide ( 7 out of 10 )

Run Silent, Run Dead

A Story about American Submariners that unwittingly take aboard a zombie ( 7 out of 10 )

Sorgie’s Choice

Starts out with a sick infected soldier coming aboard a ship before it sinks, when a surviving soldier is given the choice between killer sharks or a raft with zombies. I personally would have chosen the later ( 7 out of 10 )

Five By Five

The story of five fighter pilots that return to the U.S.S Enterprise only to find it infested with zombies as they crash there foul depleted plans to take out some zombies, this was sort of poetic ( 7 out of 10 )

Unit 731

This story tell of the horrific experiments tested by the zealots Japanese scientist and their consequential failure. ( 5 out of 10 )

The Last The Dead And The Damned

Feature a Japanese and American soldiers separately fighting to the death, I describe this comic as pointless not in a tragically pointless kind of way but in a child could have done a more compelling story way ( 4 out of 10 )

Catch of the day

Is About a Father and son from A poor Filipino Village and the problems that they face because of the war and the zombie Apocalypse. ( 6 out of 10 )

Last Dance with Mary-Jane

A zombie love story about a marine on a rescue mission to save his dream girl that he meet at a U.S.O dance ( 7 out of 10 )

SI Cheng

A cartoony tail about A platoon of soldiers and the overly committed officer that leads them into a village infested with zombies ( 5 out of 10 )

Radio Base Z

This story starts with the discovery of an unidentified air craft flying over Alaska when American fighter Planes shoot them down and a soldier is dropped in to check out the wreckage we later learn that the soldier sent in is A native American after he comes face to face with a zombified polar bear. this comic was my favorite of the volume the set up was epic and the art fantastic the comic has a to be continued ending I would like to see this made into a standalone comic ( 9 out of 10 )

Hachimaki

The tail of A Treo of soldiers and their struggle to blow up a Japanese bunker ( 6 out of 10 )

Fukushima

Features a vengeful Spirit/Zombie on A rampage to take  vengeance on the people responsible for the atomic bomb attacks on Hiroshima And Nagasaki ( 4 out of 10 )

Hell in The Pacific

Is about two mutilated zombies that fight to death for years. the art is very ugly not to my liking and the story was uninspired ( 3 out of 10 ).

Wild Blue

Is about a cool black pilot that takes off with his plane on a carrier deck full of zombies ( 7 out of 10 ).

Stay of Execution

Is about a curl Japanese Executioner and how he gets his come upend. ( 6 out of 10 ).

Life Preservers

The story of a soldier stranded in a boat out on the open sea with a top-secret zombie in a box, this was gross and anti climatic. ( 4 out of 10 ).

The Orphans

A group of marines on a mission to recover the dead.( 5 out of 10 ).

Kokoda,1942

The tail of a soldiers and a native that struggle to survive in a jungle full of zombies, there’s no dialog in this short but it was good ( 7 out of 10 ).

Propaganda

Tells of the fear that the zombies create for the Japanese people. ( 5 out of 10 ).

Cold Country

Is about a soldier returning home that tries to adjust to life after facing the horrors of zombie combat. ( 4 out of 10).

Operation Z

The last comic short feature the Japanese using zombies pilots for a surprise attack on pearl harbor.( 7 out of 10 ).

I’d like to acknowledge the fact that many of the comic shorts reviewed above were created by amateur writers and artists and I wish to encourage them to continue working towards making great comics everybody has to start somewhere and I wish them the best of luck, but one thing I’d like to suggest for people interested in writing zombie comics is this just because it’s a zombie comic doesn’t mean the story can’t have a happy ending just a word for thought. the comic’s I liked best in this where Run Silent, Run Dead/Banzai Washout and Radio Base Z .  I give the Volume as a whole ( 7 out of 10 ) fun Fact F.U.B.A.R is an acronym from world war two that stands for Fu#%ed up Beyond all Recognition.

Hi Thunderscorpion here!, that’s right I’m still reviewing even though it’s been awhile it’s hard for me to get the time to concentrate on making one of these reviews, but I’ve finally got one done.  The anime I’ve finished watching since my last review are “Mysterious Girlfriend X” and “Sankarea”.  Mysterious Girlfriend X is one of the grossest anime I’ve seen in a while because of the saliva aspect of the story.  I wasn’t sure whether or not I was supposed to be aroused or repulsed by it. Having said that I think it was a very nice anime and it was done in a very tasteful way for the most part; also Urabe is supper cute.  Next “Sankarea” what can I say I love zombies and this anime is a zombie romance that really works, although the whole decomposing thing with Rea was off-putting the drama was sold.  I just hope they kill her father at some point. Both of these anime’s need second seasons and I hold them firmly at ( 8 out of 10 ) well that’s it for what I’ve been watching, now on to the reviews and since I probably won’t make a new set of reviews untill after Christmas I’d like to wish you all a Merry Christmas!

Later a big yakuza thug  in the room attempts to rape the young woman, but she is saved by Kato before their attentions are drawn to the large black ball in the room as it starts to play music the ball basically informs them that their lives are over and gives them a mission to kill a strange creature called an onion alien.

Prize explaining that he has been sent by a secret government agency to defeat aliens. Part of the group buying into his story heads off in search of the alien while the others begin to leave. The routy group finds the onion alien, which appears to look like a gross snot dripping green boy alien babbling on about onions. The Yakuza thugs beat the crap out of it before blowing it to pieces with their new guns which seem to have a time lag on the explosion. Meanwhile, one of the people who walked away before, states to hear noises in his head before his head explodes. Later, Kei and the girl from earlier finds his body and turns back towards the direction of the young kid looking for answers.  Elsewhere, Kato shows up mortified at the sight of the body of the alien that the thugs ruthlessly murdered when the onion alien’s father shows up to crack some skulls. I love science fiction and this manga is one of the best. ( 8 out of 10 )

Free Comic Book Day 2012 Comic Reviews


Hi Thunderscorpion here with my review of Free Comic Book Day 2012.I managed to get most of  the comics I sought out for, I had to get the Mouse Guard and Stuff of Legend FCBD issue’s I look for them every year and luckily I was able to find them both although finding The Stuff of Legend FCBD issue proved more difficult. anyway here’s the reviews!

Buffy The Vampire Slayer/The Guild Free Comic Book Day 2012

In this issue Buffy combat’s an Alien inside A spaceship with only A can of bug spray and A Lighter as A weapon meanwhile Spike plays Boy Scout Leader for A troop of skittish talking bugs. I skipped the “Alabaster part 2” comic it wasn’t really my scene I also largely skipped The Guild side of the issue the story seemed kind of retarded to me. I give this issue (7 out of 10) Seeing Buffy take on that Alien was pretty cool.

Dinosaurs VS. Aliens Free Comic Book Day 2012

When I first saw this comic’s cover I thought it looked like your general comic pandering to people into Dino’s and aliens in such but when I looked inside I was surprised to see Great almost movie quality art and an interesting alien interdiction at the beginning it looks like it could be a great one. (7 out of 10) A preview is supposed to make you want to see more and that is the affect it had on me.

Mouse Guard/Labyrinth and others HC Free Comic Book Day 2012

The Mouse Guard proportion of the comic features A story told through puppetry about a mouse named Baldwin and how he settles a community and clams himself a lovely mouse bride, The Labyrinth part of the story is about Hoggle’s failed attempt to find love by challenging the goblin city gate’s humongous guard as he follows the bad advice of a certain infamous worm, I also flipped through the other comics contained in this book but did not find them interesting enough to review, I give the book as A whole (6 out of 10) But I have read better Mouse Guard FCBD comics.

The Stuff of Legend/Finding Gossamyr Free Comic Book Day 2012

Although the Finding Gossamyr side of the comic dominates the issue I was more interested in the other Stuff of Legend side form the beginning Gossamyr came off like your run of the mill kids go to A strange land type story. you know the story’s there often about some kids usually with family issue’s that go to A mystical land and save something or another. “Narnia” for Example  and that’s fine if you like that kind of story but The Stuff of Legend preview was more to my likening however short it was. the preview featured Monty the Monkey recording are heroes journeys so far on the walls of A cave when Anya the Tiger arrives and makes her disapproval of King Max The Bear’s regime apparent the coming continuation of the story The Toy Collector Chapter is shaping up to be great I give this issue (7 out of 10)

Dairy of A Zombie Kid Free Comic Book Day 2012

I never liked the original Dairy of A wimpy Kid series but this is just awful the whole comic is full of stupid short stories about the Zombie Kid I like Zombie comics and I think this is one of the worst Zombie comics I’ve ever had the misfortune of reading. Total crap is a word I’d use to describe this comic.  While writting this review I was tempted to use the comic as kindling for a fire I really feel ripped off by this comic even though I paid nothing for it. I want the time I spent reading this comic back, but it’s gone (1 out of 10) don’t waste your time on this.

Comic Review August 29, 2011


Hi Thunderscorpion here, still working on my secret project its going to take a while before I will have anything to show for it and I may end up having to scraping the whole thing, but im working things out, unfortunately Im running out of comics to review so it’s probably gonna be a while before I can do more review, so for now this will have to be it.

Mouse Guard The Black Axe #2

In this issue Em and Celanawe’s quest for the Black Axe leads  them to the Port Sumac where they find a routie young sea fairing mouse named Conrad willing to take them on the treacherous voyage across the northern sea on his ship. So he may prove himself worthy of being the captain of the council of captains.  While on their journey out to sea Em explains to Celanawe that the two of them are the last living descendants of the legendary mouse Farrer who forged the black axe and that Em’s older brother Benn whom she suspect’s is dead was the last mouse to have the fabled Black Axe in his possession and the issue ends suspensefully as their ship capsizes admist a terrible storm and Em and Celanawe falls overboard and sinks under rough seas. ( 8 out of 10)

Planet of The Living Dead #1

The story of Planet of The Living Dead follows the crew of the USCSS Typhon as they travel thru space carrying a creepish Mr Jek and his cargo aboard to a planet called Cicero, but when they arrive and land on the planet’s surface they find it deserted and as they investigate more some of the crew get’s to fixing the power, while Mr.Jek goes off to find the man he was looking for Rocca.  Finding him zombified he shoots him before taking something from him, meanwhile, the others begin to encounter the undead and the crew comes outside to find an army of zombies crawling all over their landingship as the USCSS Typhon suddenly falls from the sky on fire.  Mr Jek comes up with a plan to reach a nearby ore carrier to use to escape the planet and call for help, but after the crew provides cover fire for him and he gets inside the carrier he takes off and leaves them all behind stranded on a planet infested with the undead. Who didn’t see that coming?   I mean they didn’t trust the guy from the beginning why would they let him be the one that runs for the ship their only known route of escape!  That aside interesting story the art wasn’t bad ether my main complaint is that it was short but I will most likely be picking up the continuation of the story “Return to The Planet of The Dead” in the future.  ( 7 out of 10 )

Rasl #10

The issue begins with Rasl searching for a place to park his jeep finale settling on an airport parking lot before transporting himself to Annie’s parallel universe. Meanwhile, Rasl goes to find Annie at a motel only to discover that she is leaving him for some cholo bodyguard named Luis. After explaining her reason for leaving Rasl reveals to her the truth that he is a different version of the man she knows from her universe and that he loved a different version of her in his parallel world, but before Annie could take off with Luis, Rasl gave her some money and in return she gave him a note telling him to meet her at a bar called Lucky’s at 10:00 p.m., but to Rasl’s surprise when he shows up he meets this worlds Maya instead and after chatting with her for a while there is a moment where Rasl wigs out and his vision gets trippy, and the issue ends with two moving to step out of the bar together. I think Maya and Rasl look good together I hope they become a couple. ( 8 out of 10 )

28 Days Later #21

The issue begins with a flash back of Selena’s past when she worked at a pharmacy and had to take the verbal abuse of an enraged customer, meanwhile, in London Clint and Selena get processed and assigned a room, but while being evaluated, too Selena’s surprized Clint claims to be her husband to make things easier, but Selena plays along with the lie and later the two work together to steal a soldier’s cell phone and Clint calls his boss Eliott and arranges for them to be picked up in a week after Clint finishes writting his story. Later at night Selena reveals that she plans on leaving on her own and the issue ends with Clint waking up in the morning to find Selena gone having left behind only a note and her machete. ( 7 out of 10 )

Neon Genesis Evangelion Campus Apocalypse Vol 2

The Volume’s story begin’s at the schools christian nativity festival where some of the students prepare for a play, humorously Asuka has been given the part as the virgin mary and Ayanami is playing the role of a horse which she wearily enjoy’s. Later Shinji encounters the little girl that he meet in the previous volume and learns that her name is Cecilia Di Nuovo and that she has a twin brother named Makoto,  meanwhile, Kaworu spends the night at Shinji’s place and reveals the disturbing truth that Rei and himself are parentless and where created thru artificial means by the organization for the sole purpose of stopping the angles. Afterwards Kensuke is approached on the street by a man claiming to work for a game company who gives him a game to download on to the school’s computers for a beta test, but when the mysterious game is played by the students they start to passout and go into a lethargic state. The volume end’s with the revelation that Angels have had a hand in the making of this troubling game. I think this series needs more action.  My favorite part of this volume was when Ayanami had the horse head on priceless: ). ( 6 out of 10 )

Comic Review August 25, 2011


Hi Thunderscorpion here I have a secret project in the works now,  I won’t say much about it because it’s not for sure what will end up happening, but I might post an update later on, anyway here’s the reviews.

Orc Stain #6

The issue continues where the story left off with the orc rioters ravaging the Mountain City as Boss Beard Sersa orders his Shakatuu to put down the mob, meanwhile inside the innards of the gigantic beast One-Eye fights and subdues a Poxagronka crazed Pointy Face by force feeding him the mind control Birdling and then uses his ability to find the weak points of things to determine that the way out of the beast is to head up, but suddenly they are discovered by a group of mad cannibal orcs elsewhere Bowie and Zazu turns a couple of Shakatuu guards into the orc equivalent of wanton soup  and then sabotages the orc’s system of control  over the monolithic sized beast.  Back inside the beast One-eye and his two orc companions run for there lives as they are chased by the cannibal orcs, but they lose their pursuers and the three orcs almost make it out to safety when One-Eye slips and nearly falls to his death as his skittish orc friend starts to pulls him up and Pointy Face breaks free of the mind control bridling’s spell and kills One-Eye’s friend before setting his sights on One-Eye himself, but before he could complete his Poxagronka and kill One-Eye a large worm monster swallows him up and One-Eye is able to escape by popping thru one of the beasts eyes and the issue ends with One-Eye coming face to face with Beard Sersa as he has a sudden flash back recalling having  fought in a war with him and calling for a Poxagronka of his own.  I can not say enough good thing about this series it is a must read there is nothing else like it. (10 out of 10)

Berserk vol 12

The volume begins with the Band of the Hawk in a state of despair after having successfully rescued Griffith, they start to come to the realisation that there once great leader has become a shell of the man he once was having been crippled and mutilated he will never be able to achieve his dreams of ruling a kingdom and he will have to be cared for because of his terrible condition, so Griffith tragically takes off and then try’s to kill himself on a sharp pease of wood but he finds the Behelit, and like the demon Zodd had said, it had returned to him and as the Band of the Hawk approached an eclipse occurs and Griffith and the Band of the Hawk are transported to a demon dimension where the God Hand (a group of demon lords) appears and attempts to persuade Griffith  to sacrifice his friends in order to become an all-powerful demon Lord like them by showing him a vision of his past and convincing him that it was the only way for him to live his dream. Shockingly Griffith agrees and the members of the Band of the Hawk are branded with the mark of sacrifice and many are feasted on by demons as Griffith begins his transformation into a monster.The volume ends with Ricket arriving on the scene to find a huge swirling tornado stretching out to the sky as well as Nosferotu Zodd facing down the Skull Knight. We’ve reached the beginning of the eclipse the next volume is gonna be all new to me well get to see what happens after the point where the anime left off, can’t wait this is an  amazing manga. ( 9 out of 10)

28 Days Later #20

The issue begins with Captain Stiles holding Selena at gun point as they walk towards the city of Manchester. Unbeknownst to them Clint has survived and made it to shore, but he passes out and awakens to find himself in custody of some American soldiers that think he killed there comrades, later after Clint tells them what happened there still doubtful of his story, but they take him to Manchester anyway to see if he can prove he’s telling true, meanwhile, the Captain brings Selena to the Worsley house mansion from the “first 28 days later movie”and forsces her to show him where Major West died, but Selena tricks Captain Stiles in to causing his own demise by throwing the Major’s dog tags out in to a minefield, so that when he went to go get them he came to an explosive end.   The issue ends with Selena and Clint reuniting in Manchester after the American Soldier hear the landmine go off and they see that Clint story checks out with the nightmare of Captain Stiles over their next stop is London. This was a satisfying conclusion, And I liked the movie reference I give this issue. ( 7 out of 10)

Rasl #9

The story continues with Rasl and his two strange newly acquainted companions wondering the desert as the man from before, the one claiming to be a president talks to him about his experience seeing a UFO, later the man brings up Nikola Tesla and sets off Rasl.  Rasl then leaves saying he’s going back to the parallel world where Annie is with the money he got from Pauly back at the casino and the issue end’s with Rasl going back to his jeep only to find a strangely dressed being to short to be Sal searching thru the back of it, Rasl chases after it but it escapes using a machine like the one Rasl has.  It would appear as if a new player has joined the game. I think it’s Nikola Tesla on the cover of this issue with a pigeon if so then I get the joke : ). ( 8 out of 10)

The Last Zombie #5

The issue begins with Doctor Ian Scott injecting himself with a vaccine to delay the inevitable affects of the zombie virus, meanwhile, all hell breaks lose in town as the raiding army besieges them and the soldiers fight back later aided by an armed mob of lepers their able to withstand the attack, but not before a suspenseful shoot out between the raider leader and Doctor Bopuri, the battle ended at a high cost to the group haveing lost the soldiers Bloom, Ramirez, and Seger as while as Ramona and her little girl in the slaughter and demoralizing planters. The issue ends with the remaining survivers burying their dead before setting off in the APC’s to complete their mission.  Note: there is also the Africa Corpse comic part 2 at the back of the issue.  Can’t wait till I get the next series “The Last Zombie Inferno” comics the covers look amazing.

Comic Review – August 14, 2011


Hi Thunderscorpion here, I recently found out about the Walking Dead session 2 coming out on October 16th, the trailer looks awesome I wonder if they are going to kill Shane right away like they did in the comic. Also I’m excited about the Berserk Golden Age I – Egg of the Supreme King movie said to be coming out in 2012.  As you may have already guessed I’m a huge fan of Kentaro Miura’s Manga masterpiece Berserk.

Neon Genesis Evangelion Vol 12

The story continues with NERV under siege by an entire division of FSSDF troops directed by SEELE. They plan to kill all the Eva Pilots and stop commander Ikari.  As the invading army assaults NERV mercilessly killing all they encounter, Shinji is cut off from support and Mesoto orders a still unconscious Asuka to be placed inside her Eva and lowered to the bottom of the lake.  Meanwhile, a depressed Shinji who has lost the will to fight is discovered by the enemy and held at gun point, when suddenly Shinji’s father arrives to save him and then reviled the terrible truth that he is an angel and that he plans to forsake humanity and become a god for himself.   Elsewhere Asuka awakes inside unit 02 and recovers from her depression to take on all nine of the Eva series by herself and the volume ends with Mesoto tragically sacrificing herself to get Shinji to unit 01 only for him to get there and not be able to pilot it.  There is going to be another volume after this one hope they get it to us sooner than later, it surprised the hell out of me at the part when Gendo showed up and saved Shinji for a second there I thought that Gendo actually had a heart, but of course he’s has to follow it up with telling Shinji that he never loved him, no wonder Shinji’s so messed up is there any character in all of fiction more of a bastard then Gendo Ikari. I give this volume ( 9 out of 10).

28 Days Later # 19

The issue continues with Clint and Selena holding out inside of a building as the armed gun man calling himself Captain Stiles dresses a leg wound.  Clint quickly devises a plan and go’s for a hummve as Selena move’s to lure the captain away, before being picked up by Clint.  After escaping they sink the hummve and then cast off in a boat, but later at night while they sleep in the boat’s cabin the captain climbs aboard and forces Clint at gun point to dive off the boat before revealing to Selena that his reason for hunting her down is to get revenge for the death of this friend the late Major Henry West. ( 7 out of 10)

Rasl # 8

The story begins with Rasl recalling some of the events that happened in the previous issue such as his affair with Mile’s wife Maya and the destruction of the compound before returning to the point where the last issue left off with Rasl meeting the creepy little girl.  While in the company of Rasl the little girl takes off Rasl jacket and shirt before crossing off Rasl’s tatoo of Maya’s name with her fingers signifying that she was dead, then she draws a familiar symbol in the dirt surprising Rasl before a strange man arrives and startles him claiming to have met him in a parallel world and the issue ends with  the man telling Rasl that the creepy little girl is god. This issue felt way to short for a 3.50 cover priced issue you’d expect a little more volume still a great story (8 out of 10).

The Last Zombie # 4

The issue begins with doctor Ian Scott awakening fr0m a nightmare about his wife Jen to find doctor Bopari monitoring him, she then comments on her concern that he is exhibiting the symptoms of the zombie virus even thought he was not bitten. Meanwhile, an army of raiders rally’s for the attack on the town and kills one man for cowardice.  Elsewhere, SGT. Warner and Seger have a chat with the leopards leader Ned and find out that the pit that doctor Scott Fell into was contaminated with the dead body’s of  the infected and the issue ends with doctor Scott performing a test on himself only to learn the terrible truth that he in fact is infected, while at the same time the raiders attack the town in full force. I also note that at the back of this issue there is the short Afrika Korpse comic. This series is my second most favorite zombie comic out there next to the Walking dead of course I give The Last Zombie #4 (8 out of 10).

The Secret History Book 14

The  story continues now following a man named Monsieur Daniel as he leaves a repatriation center and visits the ruins of Arcane 17 to see a strange star-shaped symbol.  Later he goes to a man named Leon Vasil to have his prized tarot card apraised, but Leon offers on value only the history of the cards, and Daniel recollects his time spent at a german concentration camp and how he was given the card by a mysterious man he met there known only as Robert the Devil.  Later Daniel comes to the home of the Woman Baroness Corvo and after sleeping together they are intruded on by two former SS members out to get Daniel, but Daniel quickly snatches up the Baronesses framed tarot Card draining the woman of her youth in the process as he makes his getaway.  Afterwards, Daniel is captured and beaten, but he manages to kill his captures with a sneak attack and the volume ends with Erlin and Lady Aker making an apearance at the ruins of Arcane 17.
