If y'all have been enjoying these posts, the first story arc of Rat Queens has been collected in the trade Sass & Sorcery, and issue seven comes out tomorrow.

Let's finish this )

It occurred to me just while uploading these images that the title may be a reference to the rat king, though I'm not sure what connection there is. They're vermin bound together by mud and shit who spread plague? Maybe...

Enough speculation )

I myself do not care for Rat Queens. I find the characters unlikable and, for the most part, very bland (and as a D&D player, I find myself wondering about the mechanics of this world). However, I picked it up because it got good buzz, and it's also nominated for an Eisner for "Best New Series", so clearly some people like it. Perhaps some of you will enjoy it more than I.

Also the series can be fairly bloody, so while I'm not posting the worst of it, fair warning.

Let's dive in )

Revival is one of two great new series* that I've started reading in the last year. When it was announced I avoided it because... zombies, but I heard enough good things to give it a go. I'm only a trade reader though, so I'm an issue or two behind (which is a shame because the cover to #20 looks majestic. They recently did a one-shot crossing over with Chew and while there are some spoilers for Chew, you don't need to know too much about either series to enjoy the issue properly.

It's a deeply unsettling book. I'm not kidding when I say that a hopper full of teeth wasn't close to being the worst thing that I read in the 3rd trade (and I'm massively grateful that I read it outside, on a sunny day)
If you are thinking about getting on the Revival train, or are a Chew reader who wants to know the ackground of Revival, here's a handy catch up guide from the third trade, or issue #12. I might do a post on the covers later, as Jenny Frisson's work is excellent

Where's the baby? Blue cheeks, icicle tears )

It's brilliant. And the horror of that last page is nowhere near as bad as other parts of the book. Don't read it last thing at night.
*The other is the Eisner nominated High Crimes. It's excellent

I took advantage of Image Comics 50% off Digital Comics sale and splurged on a few series I've been meaning to get into.

Since Greg Rucka is one of the S_D community's patron saints, I thought I should post some scans from the first two 2 issues of his and Michael Lark's new ongoing series, Lazarus, which is only 4 issues old so far.

The series continues to be charming, funny, and much less torrid than the title might suggest. But none of that is why I'm posting these pages.

Four pages of the most interesting veer around copyright issues I've read. )

Title: Storm Dogs (#1 of 6)
Creators: David Hine (story) and Doug Braithwaite (art)
Posting: About 7 pages worth of panels from a 22 page story, plus back-up material from issue #1 & 2.
Availability: The first five issues are available now. Issue #1 is free on Comixology.


Storm Dogs is, in pitch terms, "CSI meets Firefly at the Mos Eisely cantina" -- our main characters have been sent out to investigate a series of suspicious deaths on Amaranth, a mining planet on the periphery of Union space in a delicate diplomatic position due to the planet's native inhabitants.



Many of them have criminal records. At least one of them may be a murderer. )

So, Bedlam is continuing to be an alternatively fascinating and horrifying book, with a main character who is... much the same. We know who he was, but what does that mean we should think of who he is now? Especially considering what he went through to get there...

Spoilers for Bedlam #1, 2, 3 and 5, and warnings for blood and gore and horror and some nudity, and also a really strong warning (seriously, really strong) for animal abuse in this post. )

The capitalization's deliberate, by the way. It's not totally clear, but it seems like the guy's name actually is "The Good Doctor". How... ironic.

Batman's swinging along and sees two gang members about to kill another one for stealing? We all know what he's going to do. The man known currently as Fillmore Press, on the other hand, does things a leetle differently.

Spoilers for Bedlam #1, and warnings for blood and violence and horror and such throughout this post. )

Yikes. Of course, this makes a more sense when you realise who exactly he was in a different life. We don't know precisely how his mind was changed, but a series of flashbacks paint a picture that's a wee bit disturbing. And then there's his therapist...

Spoilers for Bedlam #2 )

I have to say, I'm really enjoying this so far. It's not a comic for the easily disturbed (there's a sequence in the latest issue that you should probably not read if you're an animal lover), but it's intriguing and weird enough for me to really want to know what's going to happen next.

Interesting new series coming from Image Comics. Apparently about a murderous maniac who "gets better" and what happens afterwards.

3 Images from CBR.


Slight warning for blood and language. )

A repost from s_d 1.0.

If you haven't met them before, meet Knight Watchman and Kid Galahad.

Back in the 90's when Batman was wallowing in his own angst, and the angst of anyone within 200 miles, and was, essentially, a self righteous aggravating pain the the Batcave, there were two places left to enjoy his adventures. The first, obviously, was Batman the Animated Series. The second was the Big Bang comics series of entirely blatant, but respectfully affectionate, homages to the glories of the Golden and Silver ages.

Pseudo Golden Age nuttiness under the cut! )

So... are we going to talk about it?


As the story arc comes to a conclusion, as Rick Grimes and crew come face-to-face with a very real and nasty threat.

Oh boy, was THIS painful to go through.

But for thoseof us who follow the book, we all know that it does NOT pull punches, there are no easy outs, and when bad things happen to good people, it's not in a cartoon way, but very very painful.

Fair warning, I've explicitly left out the gore and the blood, but if you DO pick up the book, you've been warned. It's is agony to read and you may need a few minutes not to jump into the book itself and seek berserker justice.

Bring the pain. )
