Terrorism Orphaned. 0

Yeesh. After the crazy, intense introduction to the Orphan's in the first Protocol issue, issue 2 continues on with the Charlie's Angels, high intensity, fast action story.Michael Alan Nelson is able to get a large cast introduced so you actually care about some of them by the end. You also hate em. It is obvious that this is an espionage, spy, anti-terrorist organization, group, what-have-you, but what is really interesting about this whole story so far is who the heck are the 'grandparents' an...

A Family Friendly Time Spanning Space Tale. 0

This comic was a last minute impulse buy for me this week. I usually can't go wrong with BOOM! Studios stuff so when something of theirs seems even mildly interesting I've learned to just get it.Upon first glance when I received my issue and cracked it open I noticed this is some kind of Boom! Studios imprint or something. It's called 'Boom! Box'. Uh oh, did I accidentally buy some little kid or teenager-safe book? Well, not officially but I guess I did. It's no biggie though as while it appears...

Nyarlathotep Survives Another Day 0

At long last the next Fall of Cthulhu series has started!One Ancient God seems to have survived the Godwar and already he is plotting the fall of humanity.  The Fall of Cthulhu series is by far the best H. P. Lovecraft-ish comic out there today.  It's been incredibly loyal to Lovecraft's mythos and seeing all the Gods and settings in each issue is a real treat for a huge Lovecraft fan such as myself.While following the Lovecraftian settings and using his creations, that is not to say that this i...

Supergirl Still Flying High Still Learning the Lessons 0

First off let me say this... man, did Supergirl ever get shafted.  No, not that kind of shafted, the bad kind.  Earth's leaders abolish all Kryptonians except for Superman?  I know Supergirl's been basically the brat Paris Hilton of superheroes most of this series but it's not like Hilton is a threat and has ever been behind bars... wait bad example.Supergirl is a criminal in the eyes of humanity now.  Alright, well that doesn't faze out favorite superskirt!  She just keeps on plugging away at t...

Weakest Issue of the Current Season 0

Wow, it seems like so long ago I read the last issue of Jungle Girl Season 2.  I think I'll have to go back and re-read it again I've forgotten what the heck is going on!In issue 4 of this five part series, Jana the Jungle Girl is still up for sacrifice to some ancient god.  Throughout the story it becomes quite apparent that this is becoming quite Lovecraftian in influence.The issue itself doesn't really have much story in it at all.  I'd have to say it was one of the weakest in the series.  Oh...

If Released On Schedule, Could Be Good! 0

The Phantom has been rebooted...AGAIN! Well, actually only the second time by their current U.S. publisher, Moonstone comics.  Why?  Who knows, perhaps they wanted a new number one issue to try and get Phans to jump on?Apparently writer this is something writer Mike Bullock wanted so whatever, it doesn't look like it's going to be anything super different from the stories that Mr. Bullock has been doing for the past Moonstone Phantom issues.I have really loved Mike Bullocks writing in the past s...

Loose Lips: What's Worng with Them? 0

Enjoyable issue that has a bunch of hot dead nurses coming back from the dead to retreive their past body part donations because 'they've changed their mind'.Loose Lips is an adequately titled issue as that's exactly what parts they've come for.  This doesn't say 'Part One of' anywhere yet the issue isn't exactly resolved in any way.  Will this storyline continue?  Brief glimpses of the next issue appear to be unrelated, perhaps these new baddies will arrive back in the series down the line.  Fo...

Phantom Delays Took The Excitement of This Issue Away 0

I love The Phantom.  This is the guy whose kept me interested single-handedly in comic books.  The Moonstone product has helped that immensely by updating the story to present day issues.  I am however choked at just how long it took to get this part five of this final issue in the series (apparently a reboot is coming or something like that). What like half a year!??!!?  I have been following Moonstone's Phantom for a long time now and that wait was just ridiculous.  I am all for small publishe...

Sheena Attacks! 0

The story of Sheena is fleshing out.  There are lots more scenes with her involved (even if she's unconcious from a traquilizer dart) and the artwork is superb.After following the story I suspect I know Sheena's origins now, only a few more issues will have to prove it.  I;m not too sure I like this Peyote dream the one tree-hugger character keeps having though.  There is a balance this comic needs to keep between cheesecake pretty blonde jungle babe and an entertaining storyline that doesn't go...

Enjoyable Introduction to Sheena, the Queen of the Jungle. 0

I don't know much about Sheena, Queen of the Jungle other than I fell in love with Tanya Roberts back in the eighties when I was a kid and saw the movie.  That was long ago though, and I doubt I could barely even get thrugh that film nowadays.  However, an updated Sheena I think I can handle.After reading this 99 cent issue (listed as issue 0), I see some close similarity to Moonstone's Phantom comic in that they both take place in a modern day Africa.  I really enjoy the Phantom, so this Sheena...

Jana Sky-Born is Back! 1

It's been a while but one of my favourites of late is back... Frank Cho's Jungle Girl!For those of you that have enjoyed the first volume, Sheena type stories, or perhaps even Cho's Marvel Shanna the She-Devil, you'll all enjoy this series.In this issue we rejoin our characters left over from the end of the first volume while they are watching something that looks like the Space Shuttle crash landing on another side of the island.  Guess what happens next?  Jungle Girl and her companions head ou...

Supergirl to Learn More Lessons in Life. 0

Good.  I have been looking for some decent Supergirl stories.  Superman?  If you are a fan of his then well, there are enough comics from DC that he is in... I can't even keep up with them all.  Supergirl however, she's in a few crossovers here and there and her own comic (which hasn't really been that great actually).  I am hoping for a better Supergirl story with this miniseries.It starts out all fine and dandy, Supergirl is covering for Supes but gets her butt kicked, then like always, Supes ...

Details of the Bomb Queen's New Rivals Slow This One Down 0

Chillin' With Da Villains slowly progresses the latest Bomb Queen story along.  You find out the traumas that the various characters have gone through in life, forced into turning tricks to support their daughter, allowing boyfriends to fool around with their kids, and all kinds of that type of stuff.  Obviously the writer wants us to be a little sympathetic to the Bomb Queen's new nemesis.  Did it work?  Nah, not really.  This issue also shows the secret agency that is trying to rid the world o...

Dungeon & Dragons Adventures. 0

Battle Chasers seems like it is going to be some kind of Dungeons and Dragony type of comic.  The chick named Red Monika was pretty nice to look at and well, the story isn't half bad either.   I mystery is currently being solved by a little girl whose dad is missing, presumed dead by most.  Meanwhile Red Monika is recruiting for some kind of heist.It is too early to be able to judge this series.  I have heard good things, but so far it's been pretty cliche in a D & D way.Hopefully it develop...

Unoriginal, But Decent Introduction. 0

I've heard a little about this comic, saw a picture of Red Minika, and well... I have decided to try it out.  I had no idea what kind of story or genre this comic fell into.  From the start it looks like some kind of fantasy setting.  Some little girl's dad is missing.  He appears to be a hero of some worth and some werewolf-things are after him.  That's about it in this issue.  It's not a big one of course just a tease.  The story itself is compelling enough in such a short amount, although it'...

Boo Cat Bores Again. 0

Another light hearted story in the Tarot series, Haunted Hairball is pretty lame.  The issue is mainly from Boo's (the were-cat) point of view and how much she really wants to play with Tarot.  Unfortunately Tarot's cat is sick... his hairballs are haunted.The story jerks about here and there leaving me once in a while to think I had missed a page.  This issue had really poor story flow.  The nudity in this issue has also kicked it up a notch.  While Boo, Tarot, and her cat Pooka continue trying...

Supergirl Finally Realizes Her Importance is Unique. 0

Acceptance.  That is the name of this issue and the story shows us that Supergirl, through all of her trials and tribulations up to this point in the series, has accepted her destiny.  She fianlly realizes her role and responsibility.  She finds out why her parents realy sent her to Earth.  She finds out just how important she is.  For so long she has felt like a second rate Superman, or like just another Earthen hero.  Kara didn't feel that she belonged and she was right.  She now realizes why,...

The Three Kittens Tell Us Their Story. 0

Ah, now I see what this issue is.  The Witches and Kittens story line is essentially Jim Balent's tribute to the troops out there in Iraq.  I still don't understand what the heck is going on with Hussein even being in this story but what ever, it the comics!  Balent by the end of this issue really pours it on about Iraq and gives kuds to the troops quite a bit here.One major turning point I like (as always in this series, assisted by the ever so lovely Raven Hex), was that just when I was wonder...

Don't mess with the Bomb Queen 0

Ah I haven't read  a Bomb Queen issue in quite some time.  I had forgotten jsut how much I enjoy them.  This issue has so many different cameos with various other Image characters it's just a ittle too much.  Blacklight is back from her one-shot with the Bomb Queen.  It liked her alter-ego, but not really this superhero character.  Luckily for me, the supervillian in town is as good as always.  The comic looks like it is going to setup a grand scale meeting on the Bomb Queen's turf.  The Bomb Qu...

Tarot, Kittens, Latex, and Saddam Hussein? 0

Witches and Kittens , Part One appears to be a merging of some other characters into the series.  There are a whole bunch of other large breasted girls running around causing chaos, so many that it is difficult to keep track of everyone.  One person in particular that is kind of freaky to see in this issue is Saddam Hussein.  What is with that?  Is this the real Saddam?  It so far appears to be that way.The big three (Tarot, Raven Hex, and Skeleton Man), make only slight cameo appearances in thi...

Every One is Out to Get The Phantom. Terror Alert! 0

Wow. This is one heck of an ambitious story. It feels that all characters that have ever been introduced in Moonstone's series is entering into the fray! For those that came in late... you may not get as much out of this five parter due to the interesting reunion of different characters that have been introduced in this series in the past. However, it is not that imported. It is just an added bonus. This series as a must read so far. Yes, I know that this is a five parter and that there s...

Supergirl Still Finding A Cure 0

The heartwarming story of Supergirl's quest to save a little boy from cancer continues in part two of the Way of the World.It is nice to see Supergirl growing up and not the crazy brat they had depicted her previously. Currently though she is being portrayed as a naive innocent superhero. It will be interesting to see how she reacts when things don't go her way and she just sees that this is the 'Way of the World'. Will she become a bitter recluse? What personality type will they explore for...

Digging Deep Into Bomb Queen for Some DNA. 0

So the lines here are really blurred for me now. Is Bomb Queen really a villain? Why the heck would anyone want to save her? She was getting pretty soft at times throughout this mini-series. I hope they get back to showing what a super bitch she really is. I think that was the whole deal with the last couple of pages. I think it was to try an re-assure readers that this was just a story where her personality was a little different but soon enough we will have out old psycho Bomb Queen back...

What's With All the She-Males?!? 0

Part two of Queen of Hearts is over and let me tell you...I am really let down on how useless Drama Queen was. Sheesh, I don't think I even say any lines for her except for 'I broke a nail!'.Oh well, so much for her being a favourite. Incidentally I really like this multicultural aspect. Ice Queen I think is an Asian, Scream Queen is black, Drama is a blonde, and I am not too certain on what Bomb Queen is... looks white to me, but it would be kind of cool if they made her an American indian o...

Bomb Girl's Ride to Glory 0

Cool. It looks like this mini series is going to dish out the secret origin of the Bomb Queen. It looks like they also will go into more detail with the other three Queens that have been mentioned before. I really dig that huge giant naked Drama Queen. I kinda wish there was a series on her! I'm a sucker for 'Attack of the 50' Woman'- types.This first issue really begins to show the mental state of the Bomb Queen. She's as hard as nails, but she meets some Brit that just wants to romance h...

Cheesy, Unintelligent One Off. 0

I usually like one-shots that merge different characters from various books. It introduces me to new stuff that I may like. However a major unfortunate trade-off on these this that the stories are usually lame. Which this one is of course. The cheesy teenaged comic book nerds are out at a comic convention where sexy Bomb Queen and a new here called Blacklight do battle. Blacklight is apparently from a comic series called Shadowhawk or something or other. I have to check it out later.Catfig...

Tomboy Queen, Not Really Sexy, But Fantastic Nonetheless! 0

This Bomb Queen story is getting pretty fantastic! I like this adult themed super villain story along with all the the writer's potshots at pop culture and society. In this issue is the super huge battle between Bomb Queen and newly arrived hero Ace Justice. Also we find out just how ambitious future mayor hopeful Robert Woods is. I don't really know exactly what Woods is up to, the writer has done a good job at making him untrustworthy even though he so far has only had good motives... unti...

A New Villainess 0

While just browsing around I happened upon this title and it peaked my interest. A comic about a villain with no heroes to go against? What is that all about? Of course the Bomb Queen and her fabulous thong are quite prominent as well, perhaps that assisted in my purchasing decision.The tale is an odd one. One not quite dissimilar to what our major capitalist societies are experiencing. It looks like society is bored. Bored with everything and their lives that reality television is the norm...

Bomb Queen and the Too Tight Man in Tights Square Off! 0

The Bomb Queen continues her reign of regular terror on her city. A new hero 'Ace' from Texas shows up to stop out favourite evil beauty. The new mayor condidate appears to be coming on strong.All types of exciting stuff is happening with the Bomb Queen in this issue. I have to admit it is totally wide open for me. I have no idea where this is going or can go. This comic is a little unprecedented. It could be that the Bomb Queen will see the light by the end of this series and become a her...

Superman and the Batman Together Again 0

The quick Cole's Notes version of both Superman's and Batman's histories are told side by side here. President Lex finds out there is a huge chuck of Kryptonite on its way to Earth and both Superman and Batman are investigating and trying to defend themselves against Metallo.A decent introduction to the series. The thing I like about this duo, at least previously has been they tend to balance each other out well. All the bright sunshine of Superman and the darkness of the Batman work well tog...

Abused Girl Gets Hers. 0

I've read some bad things on the internet about anything to do with the Friday the 13th comics. I have never been a big fan of the whole franchise but it has had its moments. I decided to give this one a try. It is a one shot so there isn't really any kind of long term investment in it.The Abuser and the Abused is the story of an abused high school girl. She gets beat up all the time by her boyfriend. Finally she has had enough!The story itself was fine by itself, throwing in Jason Voorhees...

I Still Am Having Trouble Believing Diana's Fate. 0

I am beginning to think they really did kill off the Phantom's wife!I suppose I'll have to see what happens by the fifth part but the grieving family of Kit, Heloise, and the Phantom are kind of tipping me off to the fact that this very well may be a permanent thing.The thing I really like about this series is how they are really doing a great job updating the Phantom to make him relevant to the times. He is confronting all the civil unrest and terrorism that is in Africa and not only does he p...

The Issue Your Girlfriend Should Check Out 0

Okay if I was to try to get my girlfriend into this comic this is the one to give her. Mudwart and the goblins are these little cute things that worship their queen, Raven Hex. Hell, I'd worship Raven Hex myself!It's pretty neat that someone created a character page for Mudwart. I just checked it out and noticed he's in a couple of more Tarot issues.While I am not all into super-cutesy things, for a change of pace this was a pretty cool comic. I enjoyed it quite a bit. Tarot's okay and the ...

Why Not Save More? 0

Supergirl's quick trip to the future in the previous issue I think has ignited a spark. I don't know what that futuristic assassin was trying to accomplish by killing Supergirl, but I think it had an opposite effect. If he never tried to kill Supergirl, I really don't think she'd all of a sudden be on this mission, or seem so driven all of a sudden.Instead of saving people one at a time why not save billions? Supergirl wants to cure cancer and has enlisted Resurrection Man and a nano-scientis...

Gotta Get Back in Time. 0

The Girl of Tomorrow is, I think, my top rated Supergirl issue.There is no real clue as to what is going on. Some complete strangers from the future want to kill Supergirl for the things she has yet to do. Yes, it has all been done before in the Terminator and other things but I really liked they way they did this. The Batmen were utterly awesome, even if they only had a few lines.I don't really know where they are going to go with this though. I mean, she'll end up back in her normal time, ...

Supergirl Can't Do No Right. 0

Breakpoint at face value doesn't seem like that great of a story, but it actually is.Supergirl and Superman are teaming up to thwart Reactron. The story shows the rection Supergirl gets by citizens when she tries to help them. They feel like second rate citizens that Supergirl is helping them and not Superman. She even makes a slight mistake to a little boy and now must try to rectify it. I don't know if she can (that's for the next issue) but I actually feel bad for her. Nothing in this is...

That one killed Superman, was before the comics decided to for a bit.Supergirl does battle with this nuclear man, Reactron and in between blowing each other up or beating on each other, she questions him to try and find out his deal. Oddly enough he seems to be happy to oblige. Maybe Supergirl has a new...

While I really like the change in personality in the Supergirl comic, I am not really sure just how often I need to read a rehash or re-imagining of the origin of Supergirl.Star Child yet again goes through the motions of showing us Kara on Krypton and events that led up to her evacuation from Krypton. Is it just me or are other people getting a little sick of this? When are they just going to move on and have new adventures for Supergirl? All we keep getting half the time are flashbacks like...

This is an oddity for this series. In the beginning we see Batman and Superman. Batman basically is there to ask Supergirl what was she thinking when she receives a strange box that uses all her known weaknesses to hide what is in it.All of a sudden we meet up with Superman who gives Supergirl a mission. The Green Lanterns and Superman are at war with somebody, I know this must have to do with that huge story line that DC had which of course I know nothing about but whatever. Perhaps that is...
