It’s nice to see the Highlander franchise back kicking ass and taking heads. In Highlander: The American Dream #3 the reader finds that this tale has progressed into a more modern era, specifically 1955! Old allies and enemies alike run through the streets of Manhattan with centuries old agendas.

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.”

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.

Covers by Matthew Martin
Bluewater Comics
Release Date: July 24, 2013
Cover Price: $7.99

The collected edition of Sherlock Holmes: Victorian Knights gathers the story of the Sidney Street Spectre and the Dancing Demon, two new Sherlock Holmes stories imagined by Ken Janssens. Originally released in four volumes, it follows the investigation of a murdered prostitute in what appears to be a haunted boarding house.

After being mistaken for the Black Spectre and attacked on the way home from another case, Holmes and Watson learn of a murdered woman whose body has just been found. Arriving on the scene even before the authorities have been called, Sherlock quickly proves it wasn’t a ghost that killed the woman of fright, but something much more sinister. From there, we get to go to the countryside to investigate a young man’s death, supposedly at the hands of the dancing tree demon.

215 Ink
Release Date: Available for Pre-Order
Cover Price: $29.99

So, there’s a review in here, promise, and it’s going to be about the new collection from 215ink called Ignition Vol. 1. The lede is just, as people who call writing a profession say, buried. First, I need a moment to qualify what I mean and give a frame of reference. So, sorry, but: you can always circumvent that by skipping to the end if you’d like.

There’s been something of a renaissance of creator owned content lately, with a bevy of titles being announced from creators like Grant Morrison, Steve Niles, Brian K Vaughan, and other industry heavyweights. Although artistic control has been a high profile issue in the comics world at least since the early 90s -what with the Creator’s Bill of Rights in 1988, and the creation of Image Comics in 1992- the past calendar year has seemed like something of a watershed moment for the publicity and frequency of creator owned projects. Every major publisher, I believe, has an imprint dedicated to these projects, and the whole thing smacks of a cash-in. That sounds cynical.
