Hi Thunderscorpion here, I attended the Art Show and sold some Art I made for $55.00 and I used the money to buy some hard to find Berserk Volumes.  Photos of the Art are available upon request. I,ve been enjoying an App called Manga Storm on the iPad, it allows me to read all sorts of Manga for free,  it’s not perfect, but it’s a great way to read Manga on the go I’ve already sunk hours into it you can get it for free at the App store.

Godzilla: The Half Century War #1

The story begins in 1954 Tokyo Japan as a column of Sherman tanks rolls in and encounters a Giant Godzilla they open fire on it, in response Godzilla breaths radioactive energy down on them destroying all but one tank as the two surviving soldiers Lieutenant Ota Murakami and his friend Kentaro Yoshihara navigate through the ruin streets of Tokyo as Godzilla moves on towards the evacuating civilians. Ota and kentaro bravely fire at Godzilla in order to lure him away, but the battle ends with Godzilla retreating to the safety of Tokyo bay as the navy then bombards it. The issue ends with Oto and Kentaro joining the A.M.F Anti-megalosaurus Force as Godzilla still poses a dangerous threat. I am a huge fan of James Stokoe’s works and like with Orc Stain it would seem as though he has done it again with this amazing new Godzilla comic, The art is fantastic the story is great I can’t get enough of Stokoe! ( 9 out of 10 )

( 8 out of 10 )

The Last Zombie: Never land #2

The story continues with the A.P.C convey traveling cross-country as the crew starts to have their suspicions about DR. Ian’s lack of a health test, but they suddenly find themselves driving through a corn field elsewhere a gang of children discovers their intrusion and prepares an ambush for them, later the kids surrounds the A.P.C’s armed with gun as they force the soldiers out and the leader of the youth demands that they surrender their weapons, but the Sarge refuses when suddenly a little girl runs out to be with DR. Ananti changing the mood of the situation positively. ( 7 out of 10 ) note: there is a preview of the return to the planet of the living dead comic at the back of the issue.

Battle Royale Vol 2 (2)

Battle Royale Vol 2

The volume starts off with student Kazuo Kiriyama murdering his whole gang seemingly on a whim after he uses a simple coin toss to decide where or not he will play along with the program and kill his classmates the way he kills his loyal follower Mitsuru was especially cold, meanwhile students Sakura and Kazuhiko sit on the lege of a cliff and recall a date they once went on before deciding to refuse taking part in the program by jumping to their deaths, back with Shuuya and Noriko they come under attack by  new student Tatsumichi in the struggle Shuuya and Tatsumichi go off a cliff and Tatsumichi is killed by his own weapon then class president Kyoichi arrives with the intent to kill as Shogo Kawada shows up to shoot him down becoming an unlikely ally for Shuuya and Noriko as they eagerly join forces together and try to make it out alive, later friends Yumiko and Yukiko come up with the idea of haling out on a megaphone in an attempt to reach out and reason with their fellow students not to play the game this plan totally back fires when Kazuo shows up and kills them in cold blood. I love the realism in this manga it’s not imposable for something like this to  really happen, it asks important ethical questions and reminds us that you never known who people really are until there under presser.

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.

tlz nl #1

The Last Zombie: Neverland #1

The issue begins at Neverland Ranch near Davis City Iowa, Not to be confused with the late Michel Jackson’s Neverland Ranch. where two children await the  return of someone as well and their parents Meanwhile, on the Missouri Iowa Border the APC’s crew are having mechanical troubles, so some of the soldiers decide to go out and stretch their leg’s, DR. Russo notes that DR. Ian’s condition has worsened when he starts to cough up blood. Later while the soldiers search for supplies, private Johnson and DR.Russo find themselve’s alone in a hardware store when they start to become intimate, but suddenly the floor caves in and they are sorrowed by a swarm of vicious rodents only nearly escaping being mauled to death. The issue concludes with tests on DR Ian being delayed as the group prepares to move out. Note: at the back of the issue there is a preview for the return to the planet of the living dead comic, but been there done that, I give this issue ( 8 out of 10 ).

Rasl #15

The story continues in this final issue with Rasl and Uma talking in their car about Rasl’s plan to destroy Tesla’s Journals and Also we finally learn the meaning of Rasl’s name turns out it’s an acronym for ” Romance at The Speed of Light ” go figure, anyway’s Rasl and Uma are surprised when they see the creepy little Girl out their window, and Rasl go’s out after her, then a cop car drives by and Rasl orders Uma to turn her car’s lights off and drive away, but she turns her lights on to soon and crashes after being startled, and the cop car pulls up and Sal steps out and hold’s Uma at gun point, But Rasl walks up and throw’s sand in Sal’s eyes before grabbing Uma, Sal then uses his T-Suit to escape, but Rasl follows in his own as they appear on the ledge of a cliff, and fight as they both go over the side and land with Sal’s arm being  broken, but he pulls out his gun as the creepy Girl appears again and Sal use’s all his bullets on her with little affect, as Rasl scores a hit with a rock knocking Sal off the cliff casing him to fall to his death, After Rasl’s epic battle with Sal he walks the desert until he comes across his hidden stash and Maya arrives, as Rasl call’s her on her deception pretending to be Uma but she shoots him before reviling that she was the one that killed Miles and that she had always planned to take the journals for herself, But Rasl has A trick up his sleeve as he fire’s the array wiping her out before he escapes in his T- Suit, Later Rasl treating his wounds and takes a look at his digital copy of the Tesla Journals before riding out into the distance for the last time. Rasl was an interesting story that will long be missed I hope they continue the story again someday, many questions have been answered, but there is still plenty of room for more it was a fun ride well it lasted ( 9 out of 10 ).

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 ).

Comic Review December 6, 2012

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!

Comic Reviews – July 31, 2011


Hi Thunderscorpion here, its been a long time, about 3 or 4 months I think.  Sorry for my absence I lost the ability to use the internet for a while, but I have it now and I’ve been  writing some new reviews that I plan on posting  in the weeks to come. For now at least I’m back and looking forward to reviewing for you.

Rasl # 7

In this issue we learn about how Rob Johnson, AKA Rasl believes that Nikola Tesla was responsible for the unexplained 1908 Tunguska blast in Siberia. Also, the revelation is revealed, that while Rasl worked at the compound with his friend Miles on the St. george project, the two had a falling out when Miles learned about how Rasl had hidden the fact that he had Tesla’s lost journals in his possession.  As a result Rasl was to be pulled from the project, but Rasl had other plan’s as he instead hijacked the array machine and for the first time transported himself to a parallel world.  Later in the  present-time Rasl awakens from his fight at the casino to be questioned by Sal and Kalani Adams the head of security from the compound. They both still want Tesla’s lost journals from him, but Rasl remains stubborn as ever as they give him only 24 hours to produce the journals and send him on his way. The issue ends with the creepy little girl from before making a short but chilling appearance. ( 7 out of 10)

BERSERK Vol 11

The story continues with Judeau, Pipin, Guts and Casca on the run after having rescued Griffith, when the ruthless Black Dog Knights led by the beastly Wyald starts to catch up with them carrying the corpses on pikes of a family that aided in the Band of the Hawks escape.  Later the cruel mob of criminals with their twisted leader will clash with the Band of the Hawk in an epic cavalry charge and Gut’s will face the dreaded Wyald, whom suddenly transforms into a monster and knocks Guts out of the fight before trying to violate Casca, but Guts springs back into action and after a brutal battle he manages to subdue the beast. The volume ends with Wyald coming back to life and grabbing Griffith with the intent of crushing the life out of him,when Nosferatu Zodd appears and kills Wyald, before speaking a few words and taking off. ( 8 out of 10)

The stuff of legend the Jungle #4

The issue begins with the Jester and the other toys finding the mayor of hopscotch tide-up hanging from a tree, when an indian named Artic arrives to help aid the ill princess, meanwhile, while on trial Max the bear confesses in front of the Serpent King and his friends the terrible truth that he is in-part responsible for what happened to the toy’s master and that while in the thralls of jealousy over the young masters pet puppy he opened the way for the boogeyman. Elsewhere in the dark the toys master and his companion run for their lives after having stolen a pie, but there luckily saved by a couple of friendly train conductors riding on a train called Bessie. Later, the boogeyman’s henchman Homer kills the General with a bat.  The issue ends with Max after having challenged and defeated the Serpent King and becoming the new king of the animals being ostracized by many of his friends for his treason. ( 8 out of 10)

The last zombie #3

The story continues with the group of soldiers discovering that what they thought where zombies were actually lepers, learning this too late for some as they gunned down a few diseased civilians in the panic. After settling things with the lepers understanding leader, they all go out in search of the missing doctor Scott finding him un-conscious in a mass grave that the lepers had been using to burn their dead.  Later doctor Scott awakes in the Armored Personal Carrier seemingly well and the issue ends with a group of raiding scout’s observing them from a distance before heading back to their large camp where lot’s more of them are preparing for an all out attack on the town.  I also note that at the back of this issue there is the un-holy night comic part 2.  I give the last zombie #3 ( 8 out of 10)

28 Days later #18

The issue begin’s with Clint and Selena waiting watching over a parked car in suspiciously good-looking condition, they later confirm their suspicion when they stake-out the car overnight and see that a man in a uniform with a gun is waiting for them, so the two of them light-up a house as a distraction and when the man went to investigate the light Clint and Selena took off with the car, only to have the man pursue them in a hummve. Clint’s arm is shot in the process before they were able to escape. Later the two are discovered by a group of American Soldiers who plan to take them to a safe zone ending their nightmarish journey, but then the uniformed man returns and kills the soldiers and the issue ends with Clint and Selena taking cover in a near by building. (7 out of 10)

Free Comic Book Day 2011 Comic Reviews


Hi Thunderscorpion here with my review of Free Comic Book Day 2011. This year I was able to get all, but one of the comics I was looking for at the local comic shops in my area the one comic I could not find was the Intrepid EscapeGoat/Stuff of legend FCBD issue.  I had to later order it online that is why this post wasnt made sooner. For free comic book day  I went to a comic shop called 4 Colored Fantasies where I met Michael Allen Nelson the Writer of the 28 Days Later comics and had him sign some issues for me. It was a fun day, anyways here is my reviews for my favorite FCBD comics this year.

Baltimore/Criminal Macabre FCBD 2011:

Lord Baltimore is back and at his finest in this FCBD issue the story begins at a deserted looking village in Tulingart Germany where villagers huddled together in the attic of a house in fear of what horrors  lie in wait in the dark.  Then a boy named Rolf arrives calling for his friend Max to come out and join him.  Despite the danger of vampires, he follows and they both leave together and Rolf show’s Max that there is a stranger in the village hunting vampires.  The stranger is none other than Lord Baltimore and after Rolf finishes showing Max, he leads him under a bridge where he springs a  horrible trap by turning in to a monster, but luckily Lord Baltimore steps in and slays the creature before he could do any harm, but then gigantic spiders appear and launch an attack, so Baltimore exterminates them before seeing the young boy Max safely back home and then disappearing into the night.  Note: I also read The Criminal Macabre side of the issue, but I didnt care for it I give this issue (8 out of 10).

Mouse Guard/ Dark Crystal FCBD 2011:

The issue begins in a forge where a young mouse Kenzie watches his father crafting a fine sword before stopping to tell his son a bed time story, a story about a town surrounded by predators and the clever mouse that would free them. The story goes; the mouse ventured to the three predators that prayed upon the mouse’s of the town, a Hawk, a Snake and a Crab and defeated them using wit and trickery serving as a cautionary tall for young Kenzie. There is also a short story in this issue called Season of the Dapper Men, it was to girlish for my taste, and then there is an interesting article on a Jim Henson story called, A tale of Sand that’s going to be turned into a comic. It sounded good I might have to check into it when it comes out.  At the back of the issue there is a Dark Crystal comic, it was ok but The Mouse Guard part was definetly the best thing about this issue. I give this issue (8 out of 10).

The Intrepid Escape Goat/The Stuff of Legend FCBD 2011:

I wanted to get this issue exclusively because of The Stuff of Legend preview, it features I was not really interested in the Intrepid EscapeGoat comic.  I read it, but it was kinda kidish not the comic for me,but what I did enjoy immensely was The Stuff of Legend preview, it starts off with a little recap of story and then there’s an awesome look at the new Jester’s Tale Stuff of Legend Comic with an epic sea battle displaying  the Jester fighting his enemy’s with style.  It would be cool if some how they brought back the colonel that would be an interesting twist to the plot at least that’s what I think, I give this issue (7 out of 10).

Comic Review May 8, 2011


Hi Thunderscorpion here I’ve been working on a lot of my other projects lately,  but recently I received a bunch of comics that I ordered and I plan on making a number of new posts; sometime after the 8th.  Till then here’s a new set of comic reviews .

The Littlest Zombie V.S The Littlest Vampire #1

This issue starts off at the old Rockefeller building where the Littlest Vampire, a little vampire girl with a distinctive lisp complains about having less than half a glass of blood to drink for dinner after it is explained to her that the supply of human blood is being rationed because of the zombie apocalypse, she throws a temper tantrum and is thrown in her room and grounded, but she soon checks out and scours the streets in search of survivors to quench her thirst for blood when she finds a small group of survivors made up of two men named Ben and Jerry and an orphan boy named spank who slyly snuck along for the ride. So the Littlest Vampire use’s her mind control powers on them and is surprised to see that the young boy spank was unaffected by her powers because of the night vision goggles he is wearing so she orders the two other men under her control to get the boy and in the process they trip one of their own traps and a grenade blows  the two men up and draws in a crowd of zombies as well as the littlest zombie, which chases after the boy along with the littlest vampire and the story ends with sly Spanky outfoxing them all and making a get away in his dead companions car unaware that the Littlest Vampire and Littlest Zombie are still clinging to the back of the vehicle. I loved this issue and I hope that they do more comics with the Littlest Vampire and the Littlest Zombie together in the future (8 out of 10).

Rasl#6

In this issue we get an interesting look at Nikola Tesla.  Where we learn many fascinating facts about Tesla’s life such as the fact that Thomas Edison created the electric chair as a way to discredit Tesla’s more advanced alternating currents form of electricity and that tesla had amazing ideas like wireless communication and end all wars super weapons that could protect the earth from invaders from outer space, mixed in with the brief history of Nikola Tesla we see Rasl up to his old tricks steeling priceless art in alternate worlds and selling them to art dealers elsewhere later while Rasl drinks and plays cards at a casino he is approached by Sal who asks him to go get the journals he wants but Rasl takes a swing at him and the two fight and the issue ends with Sal scoring a hard punch on Rasl. I really enjoyed the history of this issue that Nikola Tesla was a brilliant man I give this issue (8 out of 10).

Baltimore The Plague Ships #5

The issue continues where they last left off with the strange fungus flowers now spreading into the sea and suddenly reanimating the many dead soldiers beneath the depths of the sea as Lord Baltimore and Vanessa fight desperately to fend them off; the zombies become too great in numbers rising by the thousands.  Lord Baltimore leads Vanessa into the safety of a near-by submarine as he stays out and face’s the undead mob in mass while in the sub Vanessa recalls the rest of what Lord Baltimore told her of his past about how after his wife died he hunted down his tainted family and burned them all and how he put a nail in his leg for each one in order to never forget. Once it was day light Vanessa emerged from the sub to find Lord Baltimore still mercilessly alive and standing he explained to her how he held them off untill the sun came and finished the rest for him and that he say a ship off the horizon, after the two are taken to a port Vanessa makes the decision to return home having come to the conclusion that Lord Baltimore is cursed and that staying with him would end up with her dead, the issue ends with Vanessa’s Grandmother being tortured by a man from the inquisition asking for Lord Baltimore’s whereabouts .This comic series is awesome and loaded with all kinds zombie and vampire Goodness (8 out of 10)

The Secret History  Book 13

The issue begins in Valdemone Sicily where workers unearth the ark of the covenant, but german soldiers arrive to attack them and take it for Dyo.  Elsewhere in Sicily a glider plane lands carrying a group of american paratroopers who are welcomed by Itzar as he guides them to a village he is surprised to find his old friend the Rebel who tells Itzar about  past wars and how the ark came to be where it was, meanwhile the germans weather weapon has begun to manipulate the weather conditions threatening the d-day landings, but Itzar and the group of american soldiers makes their way to the site of the weather weapon and Itzar selflessly walks into the device shutting it down saving the landings, but mysteriously disappearing in the process and the issue ends with Reka and Erlins Bomber dropping an atomic bomb in japan over Nagasaki with Dyo and the ark on the ground. (8 out of 10)

Neon Genesis Evangelion Shinji Ikari Raising Project Vol 6

In this volume another layer of intrigue is added to the plot in the form of a possible love interest in new student in Shinji’s class Mana Kirishima; to the dismay of Asuka she has yet another rival to compete for Shinji’s affections.  Life go’s on as usual as Shinji helps Rei with practicing for a class quire competition and then  Misato has shinji and the gang spend the day cleaning the class room later Hikari has a Hinamatsuri party at her house and every one join’s in on the festivity especially Misato when she stops on by and passes out liquor to the girls as customary, but denying Shinji,Toji and Aida a drink.  The evening ends with Shinji seeing a buzzed Asuka back home and the volume ends with the group taking a trip to old Tokyo, where they visit the Japan heavy chemical industrial cooperative where things escalate out of control and shinji and rei are forced to use the air ducks in order to reach the facility’s main control room to prevent a reactor meltdown.

Comic Reivew March 12, 2011


Hi Thunderscorpion here went to go see the premier of Battle LA the other day. When I first saw the commercials for the movie I though district 9 was gonna have a sequel and that the prawns were back for revenge.  The movie was great it was kinda like black hawk down, but with aliens.  Also I heard about the tsunami and earthquake in japan, it looks like the beginning to Evangelion over there with the buildings under water in stuff  anyway here are the reviews enjoy.

Mouse Guards The Black Axe #1

The issue begins with the guard mouse Celanawe working on constructing a new Frostic outpost alone near the sea-shore while elsewhere an aged mouse named Em discovers that she and Celanawe are the last of their family’s line and she sets out to meet her kin when she arrives at the frostic outpost riding a top a crow she is warned by Celanawe to stay quiet and leave with him because they are being hunted, but suddenly the crow starts making noise and it is attacked by a pack of savage weasels, so the two mice hide themselves in the woods and make a narrow escape as Em use’s her ability to communicate with birds to call a duck to aid them and there are able to make it safely out to sea. The issue ends with Em giving Celanawe a note from the Bronwyn telling him to follow Em’s every order and then Em tells him that there quest is for the fabled Black Axe. ( 8 out of 10)

Baltimore The Plague Ships #4

The issue begins with Lord Baltimore and Vanessa sitting by the camp fire  talking when the subject of Lord Baltimore’s family is brought up and another layer of tragedy is added as we learn that when Lord Baltimore returned home from the war he found out from his wife Elowen that his parents and sister where dead. While staying with his wife he becomes ill and one night while he rested in bed he was alarmed to hear that a doctor was there to see him fitting the description of the vampire Haigus so Lord Baltimore raced to his wife only to find her already murdered by Haigus.  Later Lord Baltimore attends his wife’s funeral and stays until night when his undead vampire wife walks out of a mausoleum and trys to embrace him, but then a priest steps in and convinces Lord Baltimore to slay his undead wife.  The issue ends in the present back on the beach where Lord Baltimore and Vanessa continue to talk when the strange fungus from before starts to suddenly bloom in to strange flowers. Yes, Beware the fungus flowers : ) another great issue I give it ( 8 out of 10).

Rasl #5

The issue begins with Rasl at Annie’s house where he talks with her about the need for her to find some place safe to stay at and also his plan to go to a parallel world to get funds for them to going to hiding, but as he leaves the house and sits in his jeep he black’s out and recalls his past working with Maya and Miles. When he comes too, he later meets the Maya of this parallel world again while walking around and she offers to take him on a private tour of the museum and the issue ends with Rasl having a flash back where we learns how he came into possession of Nikola Tesla’s missing journals.  No recap at the beginning of the issue this time, but interesting story I give this issue (8 out of 10).

A Very Zombie Summer #1

Like the “A very Zombie Christmas” comics I’ve reviewed previously this issue consists of a small collection of short zombie stories.  The first of which is entitled “The Littlest Zombie Learns To Swim”  is about the littlest Zombie and how he manages to attack a small boat full of a group of survivors while walking under water on the floor of the lake by using a dead divers flippers.  The next story entitled “The Rott Stuff” is drawn in a manga style and is about a hair brained scientist and his two lovely assistants as their trapped on a platform on a beach surrounded by zombies created from a failed air freshener experiment. After that story there are a few zombie pin-up art pages and a short comic about zombies and the oil spill in the gulf of mexico. The issue ends with a preview of  “The Last Zombie #1” and it still looks great.  All in all this issue was ok, but no-where near as good as the “A Very Zombie Christmas” comics where I give it (7 out of 10).

Fubar vol 1

Since there are fifteen short stories  in this “World War II zombie comic” collection I counted the “Kilroy was here story part 1 and 2” as one story I’ll be rating them all and then filling you in on the best stuff.

  • The Day Of Days (6 out of 10)
  • Bearer Of Secrets (5 out of 10)
  • If God Be For Us (6 out of 10)
  • Kilroy Was Here Part 1 (7 out of 10)
  • The Valley Of Death (6 out of 10)
  • The Brief (5 out of 10)
  • Severed (1 out of 10)
  • Mother Russia (8 out of 10)
  • Stalemate (6 out of 10)
  • De Guer (5 out of 10)
  • Four Days Ahead (5 out of 10)
  • Golem’s Last Stand (4 out of 10)
  • Kilroy Was Here Part 2 (7 out of 10)
  • Heroes Of The Soviet Union (5 out of 10)
  • Bingo(5 out of 10)
  • And The Crowd Goes Wild (7 out of 10)

As you can see by my ratings I only liked a few of the comics shown, most of the comics were drawn well enough, but a lot lacked in story telling which I understand it is hard to write a good fulfilling story in such a short comic, but still some manged to be very entertaining, the comic I liked the best was “The Mother Russia” comic it was drawn very well and had a great atmosphere.  It’s about a female Russian soldier named Svetlana Orlova.  She was once an accomplished dancer who joined the Soviet army after her family was killed by German bombs.  One day as she was sniping out the “Walking Dead” below from her towering position, she spots a young child walking along amongst the zombie’s so she sprung into action saving the child before being cornered by the undead when their suddenly saved  by a german shepherd named Thor and the dogs master a german officer named Otto Von Steiner. The story ends with the two agreeing to help one another to escape so that they can get to her tower that has food supplies enough to last  them all for years. There is suppose to be a mother Russia comic coming out some time in 2011 I look forward to it another comic that’s worth mentioning is Kilroy Was Here Part 1 and 2 which is a story about Sgt Kilroy and his two soldier companions nicknamed Fatty and Four Eyes as they barricade a house and later spend the night fighting off hordes of zombies.  All in all I give Fubar Volume 1 a (7 out of 10) there should be enough good World War II zombie action in the comic to please most zombie fans and I for one would definitely pick-up Fubar vol 2 when it comes out this fall.

Comic Review February 14, 2011


Hi Thunderscorpion here I know I’ve been putting off  my best comics of 2010 post so I promise that my next post will cover it, till then here’s some reviews all also note that I’ve been planning for future posts and I may do something different.

RASL#4

The issue starts off with a one page recap of what happened in the previous issue, which was a nice touch.  The story starts off in the pacific in the year 1943 where US Navy sailors witness strange and disturbing events as they try to rescue a distressed ship that suddenly disappears and leaves behind a large trench in the sea.  Meanwhile Rasl emerges from a portal created by his machine and come face to face with the strange faced man and after a short fight the strange faced man reveals that his name is Sal and he offers a deal to Rasl being that he won’t kill any of Rasl’s loved one’s in parallel worlds for forty-eight hours in return for some classified journals that Sal believes Rasl has in his possession later Rasl is confronted by a creepy little girl who insists that he go back to the parallel world where his girlfriend Annie is.  The issue ends with Rasl following the girls instructions and returning to Annie.  Wait till you see the creepy little girl in this, if I was him I would have run she looks like something from a horror movie. I give this issue ( 8 out of 10 ).

The Stuff of Legend The Jungle #3

The issue continues where they last left off with the animals taking the group of toys to be judged by their King who turns out to be a gigantic cobra called the Serpent King, but he’s has a grudge against humans and he has the group separated and sends the human toys  the Jester, Harmony and an ill Anya to a place called the hunting ground.  He then orders the animals toys of the group be judged to see if they can earn a place in the animal tribe. Later the animals of the group are guided by their friend Monty and he explains the past of the animal tribe and  how there was a war between the animals and humans orchestrated by the boogeyman.  Meanwhile at the hunting ground Jester sets off alone to confront a pack of predators  hunting them to save his friends. Elsewhere in the dark the toys master and his companion sneaks through the boogeyman city in search for a way out and the issue ends with Percy the pig standing on trial before the Serpent King as max the bear breaks in and takes the blame to save Percy. I loved this issue especially the part where the Jester go’s midevil on the animals that was a great scene I give this issue ( 9 out of 10).

Baltimore The Plague Ships #3

The issue continues with Lord Baltimore’s ghastly encounter with his vampire nemeses Haigus. After which he comes to realization that he has somehow brought about the horrific plague in the process.  Meanwhile back in the present, the ship that Lord Baltimore and Vanessa are on moves into rough sea’s then there is  sightings of a gigantic flying jelly fish followed by the ship sinking, but Lord Baltimore save’s Vanessa before drowning and the two end up shipwrecked on a deserted island known as the Furiani Graveyard for its many shipwrecked submarines on its shores, but while searching the island the two discover an abandoned plague ship. Upon closer inspection they see that a strange fungus is growing out of a hole in the ships hull, so they follow it to its source and inside the ship they find a coffin with a corpse inside with a gut full of the fungus, but to Vanessa’s surprise she is grabbed by a zombie and they both fall under attacked by the ship’s undead crew. Luckily Baltimore makes short work of them and the issue ends with Vanessa and Lord Baltimore making a fire and spending the night out on the beach. I like this comic series and I think it’s really under rated.  I also hear that there’s a book that this comic is based-off of I’d like to read it someday if it’s better than the comic like they say then it should be great I give this issue ( 8 out of 10).

The Littlest Zombie #2

The story begins at a shadow government military base deep underground where a pint size little girl genius conducts experiments on captive human survivors and zombies with the help of her army of genetically engineered supersoldiers.  As she completes a report on a solution to the zombie epidemic and releases an imprisoned littlest zombie elsewhere at the secret  underground base a vengeful general Faukker is plotting to strike against her, but little does he know that she has prepared for such a situation setting up her super soldier with tazers her secret weapon against the generals toxic troopers, but things go aria as the base is assaulted by a force from another underground facility as well as survivors from the surface catching the super soldiers off guard and forcing the little genius girl to eject herself to the surface nearly escaping as bombs go off all over the facility and the issue ends with the little genius girl running away at surface level with zombies following close behind. ( 6 out of 10)

It Was The War Of The Trenches HC

This comic is not for the faint of heart featuring a collection of dark world war one story’s focusing on the hardships of the french soldier on the front line’s it reads more like a book then your standard comic with lots of narrations the story’s share anti-war theme’s and does so by showcasing the horrors and injustices of war through the comic’s disturbing and graphic imagery.  The art and story are done by french creator Jacques Tardi.  The art is very detailed and gritty capturing the mood of the time very well.  In the end the comic is less of a war story and more of  a story about humanity and serves as a dark warning of the evils of war. ( 8 out of 10)
