Colder TBP

(Dark Horse)


Colder was undeniably one of my personal highlights of late 2012/early 2013, and showcased the perfect horror partnership between Eisner Award-winning writer Paul Tobin and supremely gifted artist Juan Ferreyra.  And now finally we have the trade paperback, collecting the five individual issues together along with some interesting sketches and notes from Ferreyra.

Star Wars #10

(Dark Horse)


Brian Wood’s ‘Star Wars’ title has, for the best part of a year, been one of the best comics hitting the stands. Having reached issue #10, it’s still going strong, but we could really do with picking up the pace a little bit.

Not that ‘Star Wars’ is slow or boring, but Wood has chosen to include quite a few characters in this title on a monthly basis, and he clearly has a lot of story to tell, so although the writing has been great thus far, fitting it all in is taking up a lot of pages.

Abe Sapien #6

(Dark Horse)


As a long time fan of Hellboy and BPRD I’ve really enjoyed this series so far, and issue #6 is a pretty good jump on point. The start of a two part story featuring Abe wandering the Arizona desert and learning the Apocalypse might not be all it seems (any more than this would be getting into spoiler territory).

Shaolin Cowboy #1

(Dark Horse)


I’m not really sure where the hell this series is going but I’m pretty sure I’ll be going along for the ride.

Playing out like a cross between an arty….eh…art house story and something from the grindhouse genre this first issue manages to tell the majority of the story through the silent action scenes.

Trigun Omnibus volume 1

(Dark Horse)


I have watched Trigun as an anime but never had the time to delve into the manga.

It is a great starting point if you want to get into manga with its fast paced action, drama, and comedy all rolled into one.
