Cheek, Chin, Knuckle, or Knee 0

Maximortal by Rick Veitch is the story of True-Man, an alien with a strangely familiar origin and set of powers. Though reminiscent of Superman, True-man has a very different disposition than Clark.The Story:    The story opens in Tungus Siberia in 1908, a lone soldier rides his horse through the debris from what seems to be a meteorite seeing many dead animals and trees  in flattened patterns he is in awe.. While exploring he comes across an unearthed Woolly Mammoth and becomes mesmerized.Sec...

In deep space he stole one of the aliens most powerful weapons the sentient X-O Manowar armor and used it to return ...

The Torch Is Passed 0

Under another sweet Frank Miller cover, Chapter Four of Unity again strays from the Battle in the Lost Land. Taking the reader instead to 4001A.D. where we learn about the Origins of the Unity Complex which it turns out is actually the Future City of San Gabriel. We also learn that Erica Pierce and her "Son" Prince Albert had at first gone to the future of 4001 A.D. before heading to the Lost Land to begin Unity. Magnus plays a negligible role in this tale which actually focus's more on Erica ...

Super Duper Comics #3 0

    F.E. Howard publications presents a Canadian Golden Age classic "Super Duper Comics" #3. I cannot find any other issues of this series and am unsure if they exist. Many of the later F.E.

Mr. Monster, as he battles "The Terror of Trezma" a seemingly Immo...

Abe Sapien: The Abyssal Plain 1 0f 2 0

Abe Sapien #7! It is 1984 and Abe Sapien is on a solo mission to recover the lost burgonet of Melchiorre.(cooler than it sounds)...   The Good   Everything. Mignola, Arcudi, and Snejbjerg bring us the first half of another great Abe Sapien tale. Like most Hellboy/B.P.R.D. stories this one is rich in atmosphere and it delivers the goods. The "burgonet of Melchiorre" itself also has a neat back story.   The Bad Didn't really care for Snejbjerg's version of Abe. I wish Mignola would draw more ...
