It feels a bit strange, writing a review of Hellboy Winter Special 2019 when it is 72 degrees outside, but that’s Texas for you, make no mistake. Putting the hell in Hellboy, in my opinion. But, be that as it may, this is one amazing one-shot comic. In true Dark Horse fashion, everything is a bit darker and twisted than what most other comic companies produce. And that, my friends, is why I love almost everything they produce!

Over thirty years since the release of the original film and the franchise still holds just as much magic for me now as it did then. I speak, of course, of the movie Highlander. With the release of this newest comic Highlander: The American Dream #1, I find myself drawn back into the world of sword swinging immortals and their quest to be the last of their kind. As it is so eloquently put: “There can be only one.”

Comic Review: The Returning #1

The Returning #1 cover by Andrea MuttiThe Returning #1
Written by Jason Starr
Illustrated by Andrea Mutti
Colored by Vladimir Popov
Lettered by Ed Dukeshire
Cover by Frazier Irving
Boom! Studios
Release Date: March 12, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

It’s no secret that modern readers still enjoy zombie tales. You know, mindless undead shambling around with their next meal their only priority? (The zombies, not the readers!) Jason Starr shakes up this well-established genre and steers it in a new direction with The Returning from Boom! Studios.

Instead of falling victim to a viral outbreak or the after effects of a passing comet, the undead of The Returning are everyday people who experience near death experiences (NDE) and are then resuscitated. This common occurrence somehow changes the person’s psyche and makes them prone to extreme acts of violence—they are then labeled as one of the Changed. Our protagonist, Beth, awakens from a coma following a car accident and finds that, even though she feels the same as before, her life is suddenly turned upside down because of the NDE she experienced.

Saucer Country, Vol. 2Saucer Country, Vol. 2
The Reticulan Candidate
Trade Paperback | Kindle Edition
Written by Paul Cornell
Illustrated by Ryan Kelly, David Lapham, Mirko Colak and Andrea Mutti
Colored by Giulia Brusco and Lee Loughridge
Lettered by Sal Cipriano
Cover by Ryan Kelly
Vertigo Comics
Release Date: August 13, 2013
Cover Price: $16.99

Politics can be cutthroat — especially when you’re running for President. Imagine taking a candidate seriously when they not only believe in aliens, but are sure that they have been abducted themselves. Saucer Country: The Reticulan Candidate is the second and final volume of the Hugo Award nominated series from Vertigo. Written by Paul Cornell and illustrated by Ryan Kelly, the closing chapters of Saucer Country offer an out-of-this-world dose of conspiracy and political intrigue.

New Mexico Governor Arcadia Alvarado is running for President of the United States of America. Alvarado, however, has a problem: she and her ex-husband, Michael, believe that they were recently abducted by “aliens.” Struggling to find out the truth behind her beliefs, her campaign team must do everything in their power to get her into office as well as prevent her abduction story from reaching the public. As Election Day closes in, signs begin to lead to multiple “alien” factions controlling governments all over the world and it is unclear whether or not those otherworldly beings are hurting or actually ensuring her chances at the presidency.

Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith: SpiralStar Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith – Spiral
Script by John Jackson Miller
Art by Andrea Mutti, Pierluigi Baldassini, Michael Atiyeh
Cover by Paul Renaud
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: June 19, 2013
Cover Price: $18.99

The Fate of the Jedi novel series saw the revival of an ancient breed of Sith, from the days of the Lord Naga Sadow. This Lost Tribe of the Sith controlled the natives on the planet Kesh for centuries, until they finally found their way off planet, and into their old galaxy to face the Jedi Knights head on. Yet while the concept of the Lost Tribe of the Sith unfastens numerous possibilities for new stories set on the planet Kesh, the new Spiral trade paperback from Dark Horse instead delivers very little of unique value to the Expanded Universe.

It has been a few generations since the Sith Lords crash landed on Kesh, and the Tribe of the Sith have control of the main continent on the planet, populated by the native Keshiri. While the rulers work slowly and tediously for their eventual return to the stars and revenge on the galaxy, their underlings in this relatively new society strive for control and power of the Tribe itself.

Conan the Barbarian #15Conan the Barbarian #15
Written by Brian Wood
Pencils by Andrea Mutti
Inks by Pierluigi Bladassini
Colors by Dave Stewart
Letters by Richard Starkings & Comicraft
Cover by Massimo Carnevale
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: April 17, 2013
Cover Price: $3.50

Conan the Barbarian #15 is, unfortunately, the first issue in quite some time that I haven’t enjoyed more than the previous installment. I wish I could explain why, but I really can’t.

Brian Wood does a fantastic job, as usual, writing this issue, but there’s just something lacking from previous issues. I think it’s just the rare issue wherein it’s a pretty boring chapter of a good story. And when the rest of the story has been so good and exciting, this slow act, really grinds to a halt. It’s Belit’s origin story, which again, should be really good, but it’s not. Don’t get me wrong, this issue isn’t awful, it’s just not aweSOME. I’m sure Wood will be back on track with the next issue.
