Comic Review: Boondock Saints: The Lost Gig

Boondock Saints: The Lost Gig
Written by Troy Duffy & JB Love
Pencils and Cover by Toby Cypress
12-Gauge/Innfusion
Release Date: April 16, 2010

I would like to start off by saying I am a huge Boondock Saints fan. I love both movies and own both of them on Blu-Ray. I was extremely excited by the idea of more Saints in comic form, especially when I found out the first story was revolving around one of my favorite characters, Rocco.

The Lost Gig is basically set as an extra mission that Rocco and the Saints go on somewhere in the time frame of the first movie. It would actually fit in right after the saints have the rope incident but right before they go to the porn place. It definitely fits in with the characterization of the first film, especially since Troy Duffy is co-writing.

DVD Review: The Guild Season 3

The Guild
Season 3 DVD
Directed Sean Becker
Starring Felicia Day, Jeff Lewis
Release date: May 25, 2010

Are you a gamer? Have you ever played an M.M.O.R.P.G.? Do you like comedy? If you said yes to any of these questions, then The Guild is a show for you. This is one of my favorite shows and every time the DVDs come out, I buy them right away. The Guild: Season 1 DVD was no exception as I was extremely excited for this season, as much if not more than I was the first two seasons. As with Kevin Smith movies, the special features make it worth the price alone.

Basically, The Guild follows a group of World of Warcraft players, although it isn’t referred to as that specifically it is meant to be that game, who form a guild and through the guild discuss their issues. Most of the time they don’t realize that they are helping each other become less dysfunctional. All of them have a different personality and different social issues and they all need each other to call each other on their crap. This is the basics of the show as a whole.

Comic Review: Unbeatable Vol. 2: Hotter Than Hell

Unbeatable Vol. 2: Hotter Than Hell
Written by Matthias Wolf
Art by Carlos Gomez
Razor Wolf Entertainment
Price: $14.95 each
Release Date: June 08, 2010

Do you like Norse mythology? If not, you may not appreciate this book as much as I do. While Unbeatable is not bogged down by the mythology, it is definitely more fun when you enjoy that aspect as well. Hotter Than Hell is the second volume in the Unbeatable series. While the first volume is not essential to this trade, I definitely suggest checking it out for the fight scenes alone.

We follow Dale through his ongoing adventure to protect the afterlife. Well at least until Loki decides to step in and ruin it all. Loki doesn’t stop there though, he has to ruin things for his brother Thor as well. That’s right, Thor is in the mix now as well, but he may not be the Thor we all know so well. Thor and Dale meet up in Hell and work together to escape.

Comic Review: The Killer: Modus Vivendi 1 & 2

The Killer: Modus Vivendi 1 & 2
Written by Matz
Art and Covors by Luc Jacamon
Letters by Scott Newman
Archaia
Release Date: May 05 & June 03, 2010
Price: $3.95 each

The Killer is a French book translated to English and published by Archaia. There are two previous volumes already collected in trade, which while not essential to understanding the new series, are must-reads. Matz and Luc Jacamon have created one of the best comics being published anywhere in the world. This holds true for both of the first two issues of the new series Modus Vivendi.

The basic premise of The Killer is fairly simple. You follow a hit-man and see what kind of person he is. You see his thoughts on life and the world. Not just that but with his perspective you delve into topics that normally define a person like religion, parenting, and love. It is both simple and complex at the same time. The killer gets paid to do a job and he does it. But the real story is why he does it and how he does it.

Book Review: Terminator Salvation: Trial By Fire

Terminator Salvation: Trial By Fire
Mass Market Paperback
By Timothy Zahn
Titan Books
Release Date: August 17, 2010

Have you been wondering what happened after Terminator Salvation? Are you waiting for the next movie? Well stop what your doing and go pick up Terminator Salvation: Trial By Fire. Trial By Fire not only continues the story, but also fills in the gaps and explains things that happened in the movie. All that and it’s written by one of the most prolific Star Wars extended universe authors, Timothy Zahn. If that doesn’t sell you on this book, I don’t know what will.

Without spoiling the book, let me run down the basics of the story for you. There are four stories to follow which are all equally riveting. First you have Kyle Reese fighting to survive in a horrible situation underground. Next you have Blair Williams and Barnes investigating a lead from the recently destroyed Skynet base while trying to mend their respect for each other after Marcus coming between them. Third, you have a new character, Jik, fighting to survive and make it to Baker’s Hollow while being hunted down by Terminators for an unknown reason. Finally there’s the story of Baker’s Hollow and the Prestons, Daniel and Hope and how they have fought to survive as a community after Judgment Day.
