The Unsound Comic

Before landing the gig directing Shazam! for DC Films, David F. Sandberg made a name for himself in the realms of horror with Lights Out and Annabelle: Creation.

Sandberg is set to return to horror’s loving arms with his next project, The Unsound, which is an adaptation of the BOOM! Studios graphic novel of the same name. And now it’s been announced that Netflix has acquired the rights to the project.

The Magicians #1
Created by Lev Grossman
Written by Lilah Sturges
Art by Pius Bak
Colors by Gabriel Cassata
Letters by Mike Fiorentino
Covers by Qistina Khalidah, Alexa Sharpe
Archaia Entertainment
Release Date: November 6, 2019
Cover Price: $3.99

Lev Grossman made my year when he wrote The Magicians. But he made my millennium when he continued the series and made it a trilogy. Syfy went a step further and turned it into a (not so accurate) television series that is still ongoing. And a few months ago I reviewed The Magicians: Alice’s Story. I therefore felt that I should alert any and all fans of the franchise to The Magicians #1, the first comic in a five-part mini-series.

Bury the Lede by Gaby Dunn

Bury the Lede
Paperback | Kindle/comiXology
Written by Gaby Dunn
Illustrated by Claire Roe with Miquel Muerto
Publisher: BOOM! Studios
Release date: October 8, 2019

In Bury the Lede, Madison Jackson is an intern with the Lede, the top newspaper in Boston struggling to garner the attention she needs to turn her internship into a coveted full-time reporting gig. So when she’s invited along to the scene of a homicide with fellow Lede reporter Lexington “Lexi” Ford, she sees this as her opportunity and jumps at it.

The case revolves around the murder of a high-powered Boston man and his son by his socialite wife Dahlia Kennedy. Behind bars, no one has managed to get her to talk. So, on a desperate whim, Lexi sends in Madison… and the gamble pays off… the alleged murderess is now talking, but not necessarily the story that Kennedy and Lexi were expecting. To make matters even more complicated, Dahlia will now only talk to Madison, making the young intern a focal point of the investigation as opposed to the person reporting it, a position reporters never want to be in at any point.

Once & Future #1
Written by Kieron Gillen
Art by Dan Mora
Colors by Tamra Bonvillain
Letters by Ed Dukeshire
Cover by Dan Mora
Boom! Studios
Release Date: August 14, 2019
Cover Price: $3.99

A modern take on an Arthurian legend? Abso-freaking-lutely! I grew up reading everything I could about Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. Many authors, many tales, but the message always bled through as being simultaneously heroic and tragic.

But what if things were not always so cut and dry? What then? Perhaps Once & Future #1 will be a pleasant change from the norm.

Cover by Matthew Taylor
Boom! Studios
Release Date: May 29, 2019
Cover Price: $14.99

With all the reboots that happen in the movie industry, you would think that people would eventually rebel against all the rehashing. But then a gem like this one comes along and renews everyone’s faith in the concept of re-imagining.

Joss Whedon created one of the most dynamic characters to ever grace the page or screen, this was enhanced through television, film, comics, and books. These all built upon one another, creating what is essentially known as the Buffyverse. BOOM! Studios has rebooted this and given it a more modern update for today’s fans. And with that, I present to you a short spotlight on Buffy The Vampire Slayer Vol. 1: High School Is Hell!

The words “reimagine,” “reboot,” and any other iteration of starting something anew when it comes to fandom have never particularly appealed to me. In fact, if I’ve read or seen the original, I typically avoid the updated version. However, there are some exceptions.

When it comes to Buffy the Vampire Slayer – my favorite television series – I can’t help but find excitement in anything new related to the franchise. If I’m being completely honest, though, when I’d heard that BOOM! Studios would be reimagining the beloved characters that I grew up with for a modern world, I had some serious reservations. Nonetheless, writer Jordie Bellaire and illustrator Dan Mora set out to slay those worries and doubts, and despite my concerns, I now believe that into this generation, they are the chosen ones.

Cover by Lee Garbett
Boom! Studios
Release Date: May 1, 2019
Cover Price: $14.99

We all know that drugs can kill. But what if they were made from the dead? Because that is straight up what Bone Parish: Volume 1 is about from the get go.

Suppose you could live as a celebrity, experiencing the feelings they felt, all for the low, low price of your moral compass. But there are far worse things than simply robbing the dead of their bones to make drugs. In fact, those far worse things have just started to take notice.

It seems only fitting that I should make this comic my first review of 2019. I have been absent due to a new job that was far more than I could have anticipated but I wanted to make my comeback this week and start writing again. To that point, Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1 is the perfect vehicle for this as it is also a reboot of epic proportions!

I haven’t written anything about Buffy Summers since 2011, so I would definitely say it is about time. So without any further jabbering on my part, let me get to it!

Matt Kindt Black Badge #1 review

Black Badge #1
Writer: Matt Kindt
Illustrator: Tyler Jenkins
Colorist: Hilary Jenkins
Letterer: Jim Campbell
BOOM! Studios
Cover Price: $3.99
Release date: August 8th, 2018

When I was growing up, being a Boy Scout was pretty fun. I enjoyed the camping, the fishing, the marshmallows, learning things that I didn’t learn in my regular classes. Sadly, I never advanced far enough in scouts to be recruited into the wing of the BSA that trained young men to become black ops field agents. That actually may not be such a bad thing.

Black Badge #1 is a fairly standard first issue in that it sets up the basic premise of four Boy Scouts going into the woods in North Korea and then everything goes kooky. In all honesty, there’s not that much that happens in this issue beyond setting up the premise and setting up the cast and getting us to ask a few questions, which is fine. Writer Matt Kindt knows how to set up first issues for these types of series, and he works well at establishing all the elements you need to hook you into the series.
