Ever since they defeated Maxwell, and took the Dragon away from him (well Jasmine did), they have been honing their team skills as well. Even the government sometimes asks them for help discreetly. But just because Maxwell has vanished does not mean the battle is over yet. And here is where The Zodiac Legacy: The Dragon’s Return by Stan Lee and Stuart Moore begins.

The Zodiac Legacy: Convergence
Hardcover | Kindle Edition | Audiobook
Written by Stan Lee and Stuart Moore
Illustrated by Andie Tong
Disney Press
Release Date: January 27, 2015
Cover Price: $16.99

American-born Chinese teenager Steven Lee is on a class trip to a museum in Hong Kong, and instantly knows something is off. He follows some screams into an underground cavernous room with weird shimmering green pools, and his life will never be the same. Zapped with the Chinese zodiac Tiger sign, Steven is now filled with the power of The Tiger, which he must learn to control. There he meets a dragon-filled Jasmine and a techie Carlos on a mission to stop the evil Maxwell, who has already harnessed the power of 7 of the 12 signs. The rest of the signs have escaped to find the people they should belong to, and Jasmine, Carlos, and Steven must find those soon-to-be-surprised-and-confused powerful teens before Maxwell does and sucks the power from them. Can they help the others? Will they stop Maxwell? I cannot tell you that, but I can tell you that how you think the book will end is not how it does. You gotta love a twist!

Release Date: February 27, 2013
Cover Price: $3.50

MacGyver: The Fugitive Gauntlet #5 is bittersweet. I’ve loved this series SO MUCH, that while I’m excited to see how everything concludes, I’m sorry to see this miniseries end.

For the past four issues Lee David Zlotoff and Tony Lee have written an absolute perfect comic book based on the television series with all the hallmarks and standards of the MacGyver television show, and this issue is no exception. Everything comes to a head this issue, and it’s a great wrap up to the series. There’s TONS of twists and turns and some classic MacGyver gadget-making and using household cleaning tools to do some amazing feats. It’s very well written and just when you think things are settled, we get another few pages of wrap up. A great ending to this series.
