Jeff was, at one point, a very normal man. He did very normal things, at a very normal pace. Life was alright, for the most part. Most of that changed one day. He was still an abnormally normal man, but the world around him changed rapidly, forcing unwanted and sudden changes to his character. All of this began with a siren. A loud shrilling siren that every man, woman, and child could here. Even the people who could not hear. Especially the ones who could not hear.

astonishing ant man 4

The Astonishing Ant-Man #5 (Marvel)

Nick Spencer (W) Annapaola Martello (A)

I dig this comic. I do. That doesn’t mean that it can’t slip down the slope that is “boring shit that bores me”. I mean it isn’t all boring, I’m just not getting the enjoyment I once was from this series. Wow, this sounds like a break-up. It isn’t that serious yet.


Batman and Robin Eternal #21 (DC)

James Tynion IV (W) Sandu Florea (A)

Still in that weird zone where it’s good, but not great. I don’t think I’m a fan of these weekly comic things. Meh.


The Goddamned #3 (Image)

Jason Aaron (W) R.M. Guera (A)

My feet are bleeding from being on the fence about this comic for so long. I just don’t know how I feel about it. I really want to like it. Like, a lot. That being said, it hasn’t grabbed me yet. Damn.

karnak 2

Karnak #2 (Marvel)

Warren Ellis (W) Gerardo Zaffino (A)

Okay, so what the hell. This was one of the first comics to come out after Secret Wars, and while all the others are on their fifth and sixth issues, this one finally decides to come out with a new issue. I don’t even know if I like you yet. What the fuck?


Wilds’ End: Enemy Within #6 of 6 (BOOM!)

Dan Abnett (W) I.N.J. Culbard (A)

It is ending and again I am sad. Less sad than before, but still sad. This series has been really good through and through. I only hope that they actually end it this time. Nothing like a series that won’t die.

all new inhumans 4

All-New Inhumans #4 (Marvel)

Charles Soule (W) Stefano Caselli (A)

I really like the way they are splitting up the Inhuman activity in these new series. This series is all about the smaller characters, so Uncanny Inhumans can deal with the heavy hitters. It means we get more character development for the lesser established ones and we also get to see how the world is dealing with Terrigenesis while Blackbolt is running his bar….


Jacked #4 of 6 (Vertigo)

Eric Kripke (W) John Higgins (A)

Man, this is a damned solid comic. I love shorter series like this. Get in an out. Tell a fast paced story, and give it a proper ending. No need to worry about how it will effect the comic going forward, there is no comic in the future. It’s over. Deal with it.


Ringside #4 (Image)

Joe Keatinge (W) Nick Barber (A)

I almost passed on this comic. Actually I think I did. I think I was a week late to the Ringside party. This plays out like Breaking Bad for wrestlers. It’s so quick and grounded. I loves it.


Wolf #6 (Image)

Ales Kot (W) Lee Loughridge (A)

Aw snap, they dun let the Anti-Christ outta da box. Or should I say that they let the angsty teenage monster creature out of the small farmhouse? Eh, whatever.


All-New All-Different Avengers #6 (Marvel)

Mark Waid (W) Mahmud A. Asrar (A)

What is going on with Vision? Seriously? Can androids have midlife crises? Well whatever it is, I’m darn frustrated about it. Gosh darnit. Someone get this robot fellow under control.


Bloodshot Reborn #11 (Valiant)

Jeff Lemire (W) Lewis LaRosa (A)

This new arc blew me away. It is absolutely amazing already. I just love the concept to bits, despite the depressing overtones. If you aren’t reading this series you really need to start right about now.

daredevil 4

Daredevil #4 (Marvel)

Charles Soule (W) Ron Garney (A)

This series is extremely promising. I’ve loved every issue so far. I am beginning to think that Soule is one of my favorite ongoing writers. I mean with this and Uncanny Inhumans, he is knocking it out of the park.


Plutona #4 of 5 (Image)

Jeff Lemire (W) Emi Lenox (A)

It is almost done. I am very sad about this comic coming to an end, but remember what I said earlier. This series has been a rocket race to the end. Every panel is filled with information. Everything is there. I love limiteds.


Nowhere Men #8 (Image)

Eric Stephenson (W) Jordie Bellaire (A)

So this series came back to reality like a goddamned comet screaming for Earth. I remember why I loved this series so much in the first place. The writing and character development are so fluid and real. I can’t wait for the next issue.


Outcast #16 (Image)

Robert Kirkman (W) Paul Azaceta (A)

Can you sense that? Anticipation for this comic’s show is reaching a fever pitch. Well, for me at least. I cannot wait to see what they do moving forward with the comics, that goes doubly for the adaptation. Giddiness doesn’t even begin to describe it.


Saga #34 (Image)

Brian K. Vaughan (W) Fiona Staples (A)

Damn the press. Damn them to hell. I loved…LOVED the last issue. I need more of those characters. I mean I got attached to two characters we’ve seen a handful of times in the course of an issue. They are great, and if you don’t like them. Stick it out for the surprise at the end. Woop.

People fought all around him. Jeff was opposed to fighting. He walked nervously through a crowd of people doing all manner of violent things; throwing chairs, various forms of stabbing, choking, screaming, shooting, and even one man was even swinging a venomous snake around his head like a lasso. While all of this was very frightening, Jeff had one real goal. To find where in the hell the siren was coming from.
