Soft light blows in through the window. Its reach paints the crevices and patches of darkness that typically adorn this room. Rings of reflected light make this awful room seem serene. The memories come flashing back, reminding me of the evil that once called this place home. What used to be my prison, now glowing in falsehoods. Even the sun cannot hide the spots of dried blood. Even the sun cannot hide the depth of pain that has soaked into the walls.


Astro City #34 (Vertigo)

Kurt Busiek (W) Brent Eric Anderson (A)

Man, weird week if this title is at the top. This arc is pretty great too. I don’t know, just not as excited for it as I usually am. It’s not the comic’s fault.


All-New Hawkeye #6 (Marvel)

Jeff Lemire (W) Ramon K Perez (A)

Honestly, this series has been great, but it seems to lack a little heart. I know coming off of a run like Fraction’s is a bit of a task. Everyone is looking at you to perform the function that comic served, and this comic isn’t that. Which isn’t a bad thing. Not at all. I’m just still trying to figure out what it is.

the mighty thor 6

The Mighty Thor #6 (Marvel)

Jason Aaron (W) Rafa Garras (A)

This issue is a lovely story of young viking Thor. I am very pumped about that. Aaron’s take on the youngest Thor was phenomenal and always a good laugh.


Bloodshot Reborn #12 (Valiant)

Jeff Lemire (W) Lewis LaRosa (A)

Back to the matter at hand. The annual was great by the way, go pick it up. That being said, I am enthusiastically awaiting the newest entry in this time skipping saga. I’m diggin it.


Karnak #3 (Marvel)

Warren Ellis (W) Gerardo Zaffino (A)

I’m pretty sure I like this comic. I’m still not sure though. It doesn’t help that it takes so damn long to get another issue. Weird for Marvel, but with this team, I’ll take what I can get.


Huck #6 (Image)

Mark Millar (W) Rafael Albuquerque (A)

I see a finale approaching. One of the best things that Millar brings to the table is his ability to consistently produce tight mini-series. I love how quick it gets to the heart of the comic. One issue that plagues a lot of ongoings.

spiderman deadpool 4

Spider-Man/Deadpool #4 (Marvel)

Joe Kelly (W) Ed McGuinness (A)

This series is hysterical. Honestly, if you aren’t reading this one then you are missing out. This is the voice that has been missing from the Deadpool comics recently. They are all well and good, but this is what I love about this character.


Uncanny Inhumans #7 (Marvel)

Charles Soule (W) Brandon Peterson (A)

The best thing coming out of Marvel right now, and that is saying a lot “See comic above”. Continuously entertaining and entirely badass. I love getting to see this side of the Inhuman world. This issue we get more of Frank McGee, one of the many new and equally amazing characters introduced into this vast world.


Divinity II #1 of 4 (Valiant)

Matt Kindt (W) Trevor Hairsine (A)

Hands down one of the best comics of last year gets it’s own sequel. I am really excited to see what they do with this new installment. If it is anything like the last one, you need to read this.


East of West #25 (Image)

Jonathan Hickman (W) Nick Dragotta (A)

Two years of chaos coming to a close. I can only imagine that Hickman has a solid ending…. you know, like Secret Wars, or Secret, or….you know, some creators can’t be rushed.


Tokyo Ghost #6 (Image)

Rick Remender (W) Sean Murphy (A)

In typical Remender fashion, shit went down. In typical Murphy fashion, it looked god damned beautiful. What next? What do we get to watch crumble? Another love? Another world? Dammit Remender, you’ve made me an addict.

I can finally put an end to this part of my life. I can literally close this hell off to everyone. I can, but I won’t. The door will stay open. The world will take in this place of horror and turn in into life. This is all I would have. For the evil in this world to become old, for life to spread free again. Unhindered life.
