...by the government... to die in 24 hours!Obedience is the key to happiness according to a dystopian Japanese government in this manga, upon entering elementary school every child is immunized and one out of every thousand syringes also holds a nano-capsule that will rupture on a predetermined day sometime between the ages of 18 and 24.

Yay X-Men Shojo !!! 0

When I first heard that a manga reimagining of the X-Men and Wolverine were coming out I was very excited and so far I am very happy with the final product.

A Brother in Arms 0

(This is my first review so try to keep the angry mobs with pitchforks and torches to a minimum)  The Theater of War one shots have been incredible. In this installment of the series, A Brother in Arms, the stellar writing by Paul Jenkins really works well with the art of John McCrea. These days stories of wars gone by are few and far between and most of them can not hold a candle to stories many of us grew up with in the pages of titles like Star Spangled War Stories, Our Army at War, and even ...
