I stumbled upon this quite by accident but I had to do a quick spotlight to show it off! The Ghost, The Owl is possibly one of my top ten favorite graphic novels I have read this year. It’s a touching story about a lost soul who is on a journey of discovery. With the help of a newfound friend, the way is found but obstacles appear and the struggle begins.

I just stumbled onto this one, folks. Interesting thing about Black Betty #1 is that we start off seeing her use her power and she’s just as confused as we are. Black Betty is not just a paranormal bounty hunter, she’s also got a neat little retro vibe going on. She is a fixer of the highest order but she’s not free.
I am curious to see where this character goes based on the first issue. I liked it but it really kept me in the dark, even ending on a high note. Give it a whirl, you fight find it as enticing as I did.

Is it just me or does there seem to be an uptick in the number of Sherlock Holmes adaptations/re-imaginings of late? Movies, television, comics, you name it. Luckily, quite a few of them have been entertaining and, in some cases, astounding. It seems only fair then that we have a version for all ages, one that the kiddos will enjoy and with which they might identify. Kid Sherlock #1 fits the bill with plenty to offer all readers.

Pulp fiction lives! At least it does in Action Labs’ Athena Voltaire and the Volcano Goddess. Imagine Raiders of the Lost Ark with Lara Croft as the heroine and you won’t be far off.
