Criminal Macabre: Die, Die My DarlingCriminal Macabre: Die, Die My Darling
Story by Steve Niles
Art by Christopher Mitten
Colors by Michelle Madsen
Letters by Nate Piekos of Blambot
Cover by Fiona Staples
Designed by David Nestelle
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: April 04, 2012
Cover Price: $3.50

Criminal Macabre: Die, Die, My Darling finds its anti-hero, Cal McDonald, adjusting to life after life. To being undead in other words. How is he taking the transition? He’s disgruntled, sure, but whatever, he seems to be disgruntled about a lot of other things, too.

Since 1990 writer Steve Niles, who you should know from the 30 Days of Night books/film (and if you don’t that’s your loss) has been doing his own take on the Paranormal Sleuth sub-genre in both comics and prose. Specifically, by Sleuth I mean the hard living, solving-crime-in-a-drunken-have type, and by Paranormal I’m talking about a casual slathering of vampires and werewolves. You like John Constantine? Give this a try.

Smoke And Mirrors #1Smoke And Mirrors #1
Script by Mike Costa
Art by Ryan Browne
Illusions by Jon Armstrong
Letters by Robbie Robbins
Color Assists by Aaron Daly
Covers by Ryan Browne, Fiona Staples
IDW Publishing
Release Date: March 21, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

Who needs electricity when you can have magic?! The first few pages of Smoke And Mirrors #1 takes everyday knowledge and turns it upside down. Suddenly, science is pointless and magical charms are all the rage! But is something more sinister going on here? The game is afoot!

We open to see the spokesman for The Trade Circle giving a speech to a visiting class of children. It enables the reader to become quickly oriented into this altered world that exists with magic as its primary power source. The brief explanation jump starts the story and we watch as one of the students, Ethan, rocks the boat, so to speak. Prying too deeply into the business of The Trade Circle, he quickly finds himself in trouble. But it also ignites the spark that all children have, the spark of curiosity.

Each and every week “Sheikie Baby!” MK2Fac3 and “Rowdy Roddy” Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of March 14, 2012. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

Wednesday is THE DAY for new comics, and as per usual, Henchman21 and MK2Fac3 are here to tell you about all the books that they’re looking forward to. It’s another mirror image week where Henchie McHencherson and SK6Factory3 switch things up while one picks three singles and one collection, while the other does the opposite. I don’t know how much you know about how mirrors work, but that’s the way it goes, dollface. We’ve got a lot of books like Saucer Country, Queen Crab, Avengers Assemble, Saga, The World of Flashpoint featuring Batman, Womathology again, and so much more! Honey child, it’s a big week! Anyway, I don’t even know why I’m writing this, so I’ll see you back in a minute when we get to the meat of The GoD List!

Comic Review: Saga #1

Saga 1Saga #1
Written by Brian K. Vaughan
Art by Fiona Staples
Letters & Design by Fonografiks
Coordinated by Eric Stephenson
Cover by Fiona Staples
Image Comics
Release Date: March 14, 2012
Cover Price: $2.99

Saga #1 is the kind of comic that comes along once in a great while. What comes with it is that the feeling that your “on to something.” Remember what it felt like reading that first issue of Y:The Last Man? That first issue of Batman: The Long Halloween? That first issue of Spider-Man: Chapter One (am I alone here?)? What Saga #1 DID NOT feel like, is the “Star Wars meets Game of Thrones” experience that the solicitation copy had led me to believe that I was in for.

Brian K. Vaughan, writer of comics like Y: The Last Man and Marvel’s Runaways, comes back to comics with…. Star Wars meets Game of Thrones? I’m sure he didn’t write the solicitation copy, but I strongly dislike that sales tactic. This book is NOT like Star Wars. This book is NOT like Game of Thrones. What it IS, is a fantastic story that combines many standard genres into one great comic!

Check Out This Preview Of Brian K. Vaughan’s ‘Saga #1’

Saga #1

Brian K. Vaughan has spent the last few years as a writer for the television series Lost, but before his move to Hollywood, the writer was best known as the creator of some of the best comic books series of the past decade, like Y: The Last Man, Ex Machina, Marvel’s Runaways.

Since Lost wrapped in 2009, Vaughan’s been working on various projects — an original story called Roundtable, along with big-screen adaptations of some of his own comics, along with the screenplay for Stephen King’s Under the Dome film.

But while Vaughan has had great success with movies and television thus far, I have to say – we miss him in comics!!! Which is why it’s wonderful news that Vaughan is currently working on a new series for Image Comics called Saga, along with artist Fiona Staples. Saga #1 will be released this Wednesday, March 14, and you can check out the full cover and a 4-page preview from the issue here below.

Comic Review: DV8: Gods and Monsters #1

DC/Wildstorm: DV8 Gods and Monsters, Issue #1 (OF 8)DV8: Gods and Monsters #1 of 8
Written by Brian Wood
Art by Rebekah Isaacs
Colors by Carrie Strachan
Letters by Jared K. Fletcher
Cover by Fiona Staples
Variant cover by Jim Lee
DC/Wildstorm
Price: $2.99
Release date: April 21, 2010

I never read an issue of the original DV8 series, released in the mid 90’s, but I’ll read anything by Brian Wood, so I gave this one a try. The original series rode the wave of Gen 13’s popularity, and featured a bunch of morally bankrupt teens, and that’s about all I know about the original series. This new series keeps the original cast, but throws them in a completely new situation.

DV8: Gods and Monsters #1 opens as Gem Antonelli, aka Copycat, crashes onto a planet of Stone Age (or maybe Dark Age, it’s not really clear) era humans. She is the last of her team to arrive on the planet, the rest having already split up and disappeared. Only her teammate Frostbite remains to explain to Gem what has happened in the last few days. From there we see what the rest of the team has been up to, and it doesn’t look like it will be very good for those living on this planet.
