Baltimore: The Curse Bells #5

As a reminder: ALL REVIEWS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS

Publication Date: December 14, 2011
Format: FC 32 pages
Price: $3.50
UPC: 7 61568 17868 5 00511

Everything comes to a head in this final installment. Last time we saw Baltimore he hadn’t been able to stop the evil warlock, he wasn’t able to kill his vampire enemy Haigus, and poor Simon huddle upon the ground prepared for the worst, hoping his small measure allowed him to keep his mind.

The bell has been rung.  Baltimore was unaffected by them, and he continues his struggle to save the innocents.  The man who desires to be God, who has long tottered on the edge of madness, has fallen prey to his own folly. A seed of doubt undoes everything for him, and revenge is served, just not the revenge that Baltimore strived so hard for.

Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden along with Ben Stenbeck deliver the climatic conclusion to the Curse Bells. Baltimore’s story is far from over, and the consequences of those bells ringing will likely have far more repercussions than we’ve seen so far. Baltimore never fails to showcase the horror with good story telling. If you adore Hack/Slash or 30 Days of Night, Baltimore: The Curse Bells should be at the top of your reading list.

Walking Dead Recap S2E7: Pretty Much Dead Already


Rick is distant during breakfast. Glen’s thoughts are on Maggie. Camp is really quiet as everyone eats, except the sound of Andrea sharpening a knife. Glen finally tells the group of the zombie barn, and they all look a little shocked, except Rick who looks a little pissed.

The zombies do their endless shuffle as the group goes for a closer look. Shane is less than pleased to confirm Glen’s findings. He’s ready to either waste the zombies or leave the farm, but Rick tells them they can’t do either, and Carol isn’t ready to give up on Sophia. Daryl is more determined than ever that the girl will be found, and heck if he’s not ready to give up on her after all that he went through to retrieve her doll than no one else should either. Shane’s thinks his harshness is helpful, truthful, and maybe it is truthful, but it’s not what the group really needs or wants to hear. Rick wants to talk to Hershel first. Dale tells Rick that Hershel sees the zombies as sick people and nothing more. Shane is upset by everything, running on a short fuse, and his outbursts rile the zombies.

Shane makes sure that the zombies can’t escape the barn, or at least I assume that he’s not trying to get inside as he fiddles with the locks.

Maggie goes on like it’s a normal day. Glen tries to talk to her, and gets a egg smashed on his head for his efforts.

Lori tries to do some work with Carl, but his mind is on Sophia. He tells her he doesn’t plan on leaving until they find Sophia, and maybe not after that. Poor boy is so optimistic, his little heart is gonna be crushed if they don’t find her.

Carol finds Daryl, trying to saddle up a horse, and tries to stop him. He’s the only one searching for her girl, and Carol voices her fear that her baby is gone, and that they’ll lose Daryl too. He’s not recovered enough from his last ordeal, and he lashes out when his weakness shows.

Dale has a chat with Andrea. She’s armed to the teeth, and headed out to search for Sophia. He warns her off of Shane, and she like usual doesn’t understand what’s going on, and lands at the wrong conclusions. Andrea’s changes this season have been the least pleasant. She’s struggling so hard to find herself, and be what she envisions she wants to be, and she’s failing miserably and has been just plain annoying.

Rick goes to see Hershel, and I can bet money this won’t end well. Rick offers to help Hershel with his fields, when Hershel makes mention of having too little time. And so Rick just comes right out and tells him that they found the barn. Of course, Hershel doesn’t want to talk about it, wants them to leave things be. 

And Rick has been respectful up to this point, but now that Carl is well does he not understand that Rick’s group could easily over power him and take the farm. Seriously someone should clue him in. But Rick won’t let the barn matter go, Hershel tells him that he wants them gone by the end of the week, and finally Rick gives him a little piece of his mind, and of the horrors of what world outside his farm is really like. He begs Hershel not to send them away, tells him of Lori’s pregnancy, but he ultimately leaves the choice in Hershel’s hands. Maggie overhears the whole thing.

Shane is on barn watch, waiting to hear how things went with Hershel. The news isn’t good, and Rick fudges on the truth. They can’t clear the barn, they can’t go. And Shane frustrates Rick to the point that he spills the beans about Lori to him too.

Maggie is less than pleased with Hershel’s decision. Maggie tells Hershel what the surrounding area is really like, its not all picturesque like he would like to believe. And she makes her own case for Rick’s group. Hershel isn’t a bad man, he just doesn’t want to understand. And when she tells him that one of the “sick” people nearly killed her, but that Glen saved her, the hardness in his eyes drains a little. They’re interrupted by some news.

 Rick and Andrea plot out a course to search for Sophia when Hershel asks him for a little help.
Lori prepares supper when Shane tells her that he thought Rick was dead, and when they saw he wasn’t he wished he was dead, not because of Lori but because he feared Rick would die. He doesn’t believe Rick was built for this world, and Shane goes on to blame Rick for all of their problems. And now he’s sure that the baby is his, but Lori tells him that the baby will never be his no matter who supplied the DNA. As Shane stalks off, you know he’s gonna do something bad. Carl stops him and tells him that they’re staying until they find Sophia. And Shane doesn’t argue with him, just tells him that they need to do whatever possible to stay. Shane tears about Dale’s RV searching for something, but doesn’t find it. I’m guessing a weapon. He goes searching for Dale.

Hershel brings Rick out for some zombie wrangling. He’s willing to let Rick’s group stay, but they need to get on board to his way of thinking, or at least not killing the walkers. Who sees this lasting for about five minutes? Zombies gonna eat, People gonna shoot.

Daryl takes Carol to another Cherokee Rose. He apologizes for what happened earlier, and Carol finally asks why he keeps searching for Sophia. Daryl tells her because she’s still out there and there’s nothing else to do.

Rick and Jimmy struggle to get one of the walkers out of the river, and he sees that walker wrangling isn’t nearly as easy as Hershel made it out to be.

Maggie is still upset about Glen telling everyone about the barn, but he had his reason. He sees himself as too complacent about the walkers, but he’d rather have her angry at him, then dead. And she accepts that, how could she not, not only is he like the last normal guy, but he really did have her best interest at heart.
Shane catches up to Dale in the swamps. Dale taunts Shane, and he’s poking the cornered bear. Shane wants the guns, that Dale was going to hide, and Dale threatens to shoot Shane, but he doesn’t really have the guts to pull the trigger. Dale is living on borrowed time, he still has too many morals, this is Shane’s kind of world, where the consciousless rule. Shane takes all of the guns back.

 Maggie offers to wash Glen’s cap, when the group all gathers around the house. Shane arms the group, and rallies the troops, Maggie begs Shane to stop this for the sake of the group. Lori tries to stop him, and they all see first hand what Rick has been up too. Shane of course goes off the deep end about the zombies, and uses the groups past losses as ammo. He makes a very graphic display on how the walkers are no longer like the living, and finally crosses the line when he shoots one in the head. Hershel frozen by the graphic display cannot help Rick with the remaining walker, or stop Shane. The entire group is watches in horror as Shane breaks open the barn doors. And with the zombies loose and charging, the group has no but to kill them. They quickly dispatch the zombies as they appear, Hershel is distraught over the loses, and then when they think they’ve shot them all, the big reveal.

Little Sophia shambles out of the barn. That one hits the group the hardest, and they’re as emotional as Hershel and his group were about the rest. No one is able to raise they’re gun as she comes towards them, but Rick does what needs to be done, Rick is the only one who can, and he shoots little Sophia. So Shane was right, Sophia was dead, but even he was unable to do what really needed to be done. Rick isn’t soft, he’s compassionate to a fault, but he gets the job done when he needs to.

Brave trailer

Disney has released a new trailer for Brave



Film Synopsis: Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In Brave, a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts. Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch (Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late.

The film is scheduled for release on June 22, 2012 in the United States.

Baltimore: The Plague Ships


As a reminder: ALL REVIEWS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS

Publication Date: December 21, 2011
Format: TPB, 7" x 10", FC, 144 pages
Price: $18.99
Age range: 16
ISBN-13: 978-1-59582-677-0

It’s been a year since the Plague ended the war, and Baltimore continues on his quest. The vampires are running rampant, and Baltimore bathes the streets in their blood as an old gypsy watches. She intervenes for him to prevent his prey from escaping, and he casts his suspicions on her. The Gypsy’s granddaughter wishes to align herself with Baltimore, unbelieving that all who side with him will subject themselves to death, for “his quest will cost the lives and souls of everyone he loves.” Baltimore prefers not to have company on his quest.

Baltimore’s enemy Haigus has already left the town aboard a ship, but before Baltimore can follow him, the villagers take a little vengeance upon him, thinking he brought the evil to their village instead of cleansing it. They plan to detain him until Judge Duvic arrives to pass judgment, and the Inquisition’s judge isn’t likely to find Baltimore innocent, no matter how noble his efforts.

Vanessa comes as a savior, but her gallant effort may lead to disaster for her as they make their getaway. On her father’s old ship she coaxes the story of Baltimore and Haigus’s story out of him. It’s a story of death, war, and ravishment, of hatred, fear, and the start of a plague that would kill far more than just those on the battlefield.

But in the present Baltimore’s luck doesn’t last long, as a storm destroys their ship and leaves them on a haunted island, with a dark ship and a nasty plague ship. Even after Baltimore kills all of the remaining undead, the ship remains deadly, its plague taking a form spreading across the island, harboring more secrets.

Baltimore may have mistakenly struck the first blow in desperation and fear, but Haigus is the one that made it a full on war, for a man with nothing left to lose is truly an unstoppable force. Vanessa learns the lesson her grandmother was trying to teach her, though it may cost her her life. And even if she makes it home, her home may not be the same.

This collection gives a lot of backstory to Baltimore, and the heart of his need for vengeance. The artwork and horror elements are classic Mignola, and will delight old and new fans. I adore the insight found in the sketchbooks, and Ben Stenbeck’s fantastic work. The pacing is just as fast and furious as Baltimore’s need for revenge. Christopher Golden and Mike Mignola do a fantastic job of delivering all the unexpected twists and turns. For lovers of horror comics this is a must have.

Goon: Wicked Inclinations

As a reminder: ALL REVIEWS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS

Publication Date: November 30, 2011
Format: FC, 128 pages, TP, 7" x 10"
Price: $16.99
Age range: 16
ISBN-13: 978-1-59582-626-8

The wit, the noir, the horror, everything you love about the Goon is here. Eric Powell’s work is masterful, taking a story you thought you knew and turning it on its ear, making it far better.

The Goon gains a valuable ally, one sick of the zombies rising, and he knows the Zombie Priest’s name, but his help may come at a price. Forcing the Zombie Priest against a wall may have been a mistake as a greater foe is created, one that the Goon may not be able to stop no matter who his allies are. 

To save his friends Goon is willing to employ a zombie, but he should really know better than to trust those things, especially with his way of making enemies. His hard treating of the gypsies, no matter how valiant his reason, was bound to bite him in the tush.  And when Henchmen go running for the hills, you know trouble is a brewing. With Goon, there’s always trouble a brewing though.

And, no SATAN’S SODOMY BABY! I laugh as I write that sentence, but Powell’s description of that story, paired with Franky’s reaction makes me almost scared for it.
The book closes out with a handful of shorts, which were absolutely delightful . For the most part Goon only makes an cameo, but they’re no less twisted or delightful as the rest of the series.

Overall the artwork is always delightful, and the noir elements of the story are enrapturing. Goon and Franky are lovable characters, a little rough around the edges, but the kind of guys you’d want in a fight. Powell weaves a good tale that makes you thirst for more.

BPRD: Being Human

As a reminder: ALL REVIEWS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS

Publication Date: November 30, 2011
Format: TP, 7" x 10", FC, 152 pages
Price: $17.99
Age range: 16
ISBN-13: 978-1-59582-756-2

Mike Mignola, Scott Allie, and John Arcudi round up some of the usual suspects for this BPRD storyline: Abe Sapien, Roger, Liz Sherman,  Johann Kraus and Hellboy.

The Dead Remembered begins with a young Liz, angry at the world, accompanying Trevor Bruttenholm on a little poltergeist expedition. Liz’s anger quickly roars its head before they even meet with the Priest, and when they do meet him, it doesn’t get any better. The ghost of the house reacts to Liz, and she reacts to everything else, her emotions so raw, they’re just looking for an excuse to boil over, which may just spell doom for everyone.

In the second story, Casualties, Mike Mignola and Scott Allie spin a tale of difference between those who chose the life of hunting the paranormal and those who are forced into it. It features Abe Sapien and Liz Sherman.

In Being Human, Mike Mignola teams Roger and Hellboy together, which means there’s bound to be more trouble than they were expecting. As they try to figure out what is happening to the corpses of a family, the Quillens, who all met tragic endings, Roger does some soul searching. It’s a full out montage of some of his painful moments, which were pure storytelling gold, but that’s only the beginning. A hand of glory lights the way as the dead walk, Hellboy is immobilized, and Roger is forced into the hero position.

The Ectoplasmic Man Mike Mignola and John Arcudi tell the story of Johann Kraus. He was always a medium, but he wasn’t always just ectoplasm. An incident in Chendou radiated through a spirit looking for help and changed Johann’s life. He stumbles his way though, seeing that death is just as dangerous as life, and nothing can ever be the same. He turns to BPRD to find a way to destroy the evil he has uncovered, and do good with what’s left of his “life.”

As always the book finishes up with the sketches, and some insights. A wonderful collection of stories from the Hellboy world that shows it at its best storytelling. Great for fans new to the series and diehards alike.

For a preview check it out at Dark Horse.

Happy Hour with the Boondock Saints - ZomBcon 2011

Unscripted and uncensored: this was by far the best panel EVER. A small room, a bar, Norman Reedus, and Sean Patrick Flannery. WOW! The room size made this a laid back almost cozy affair except the two Saints are so hilarious I couldn't stop laughing.

Discussions ranged from The Walking Dead, Powder, Young Indiana Jones, to condoms, music, martial arts, Grandpa stories, and the duo singing. Of course, the later it became, the louder and crazier things got. Nothing was off limits.
At one point the audience ran out of booze, so Norman shared what he had left. Then, he tried to buy 5 large bottles of Jack Daniels for the room, but the Hotel said they don't sell bottles, just indiviual drinks. Bummer, but he tried.

Can it get better? Watch the videos and find out.

Sean's view on sex and women's satisfaction

What's Sean's favorite drink and did Norman just say he swallowed and wiped his mouth?








See What happens when Sean takes his jacket off

Maybe the best segment. SPF & Sean Smithson sing Queen's "We Will Rock You" & Styx's "Renegade" while Norman keeps the drum beat.

Hellboy Vol. 11: the Bride of Hell and Others

As a reminder: ALL REVIEWS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS

Publication Date: October 05, 2011
Format: FC, 200 pages, TP, 7" x 10"
Price: $19.99
Age range: 16
ISBN-13: 978-1-59582-740-1

The current volume of Hellboy is a collection of one-shots.
The first being Hellboy in Mexico. Mignola gives a short foreword about the story which came about because of a quick sketch and he’d decided that he liked the idea of Hellboy running around Mexico, drunk with wrestlers. Stuck out in the desert, Hellboy and Abe Sapien come across a picture from nearly 30 years previous, and he begins the tale of the worst thing he’s ever seen, and when its the worst thing Hellboy has seen, you know its bad. Hendricks and Murphy couldn’t hang, but the wrestlers, they were butt kicking machines, the same wrestlers as from House of the Living Dead( review here).The story touched upon there is expanded here where Hellboy has to deal with Camazotz, and even knowing how the story would end took nothing away from the journey.

“Hellboy: Double Feature of Evil,” Mignola is vague about the inspirations for this one, or his memory just isn’t what it use to be, either way, it takes nothing away from his work. A house possessed, or a man spinning a tall tale, Hellboy has to weed through the story to find the grain of truth and stop the culprit who’s murdering innocent people. The man, Mr. Sullivan, was a drunk, down on his luck, he’d lost everything until he received an anonymous person gave him a gift, the house. He found so long as he brought people into one of the rooms of the house his addiction remained dormant, and the house rewards him with golden coins. Not Hellboy’s strangest case, but certainly up there as he finds the heart of the problem. The second part of the feature focuses on a gift shop worker with a God complex, which would be so bad except for all the dang Mummies.
“Hellboy: The Sleeping and the Dead” Ever notice a lack of vampires in the Hellboy world, apparently Mignola did too, and even though this story rattled around in his head for awhile, it wasn’t until Scott Hampton was willing to draw it, that it was given life. Eerie and poignant, it’s a wonderful tale. I loved the nostalgia, the classic Dracula bride in white, the horror and the all out vengeance, a truly stand-out piece.

“Hellboy: The Bride of Hell” A mix of legend, history and imagination makes the Bride of Hell one of the best of the anthology. A big Monster, a damsel in distress, Hellboy to the rescue, all makings of a classic story, but Hellboy is no knight in shining armour, and the story isn’t as it would first seem. Great twist, and very clever story telling.
“Hellboy: The Whittier Legacy” This one has all of the classic Hellboy elements without the finesse. It’s a very short piece that doesn’t really do the Hellboy world justice especially for an introduction into the smart, funny, witty and sometimes horrific adventures of Hellboy, but it’s still a fun romp.

“Hellboy: Buster Oakley Gets His Wish” There’s more than a little probing being done, and  the classic be careful what you wish for could not have been illustrated better. The phenomenal Kevin Nowland did the artwork, and it compliments and enhances the story.
The sketch book at the end is almost as fun as the stories. Some great insight to not only the story, but the process of sketching as well.

As a whole, what I absolutely love about Mignola is how familiar he makes everything, and his continuity, even when he’s embellishing a piece of Hellboy’s history he’s just discovering. It’s always like sitting down with a friend who we think we know everything about and then he goes, yeah that happened but did I tell you about this? All the while we hang onto his every word. Few writers can spin such entertaining tales, but Mignola manages to do it consistently. His wit is addictive, and the art work is fantastic, as always, definitely a collection for old and new Hellboy readers. In stores now, don't wait to snag a copy!

ATTN: Dark Horse Announces 5 New BPRD Titles! It's All Going to Hell in 2012!‏

IT’S ALL GOING TO HELL IN 2012!
DARK HORSE ANNOUNCES FIVE NEW B.P.R.D. TITLES THAT WILL SHAKE THE ORGANIZATION TO ITS VERY CORE! 
NOVEMBER 21, MILWAUKIE, OR—The epic story line that began back in 2010 with B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth: New World is coming to a head in 2012. Dark Horse announces the most ambitious B.P.R.D. publishing schedule yet, with five new titles and some of the most earth-shattering events in the history of the series!
First up, in February comes B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth: The Long Death, written by Mike Mignola and John Arcudi, with art by James Harren (Abe Sapien: The Devil Does Not Jest, Heralds). A team is sent to the deadly woods from New World to investigate a new series of disappearances, but they discover more than just the monster responsible, as loyalties are questioned and tensions mount!
March will see the release of B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth: The Pickens County Horror, written by Mike Mignola and Scott Allie, with art by Jason Latour (Wolverine, Scalped) and an all-new cover by Becky Cloonan! This chilling two-issue series brings a B.P.R.D. crew into the grips of a backwoods vampire clan hiding out in a Gothic southern home.
Next, in May comes B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth­: The Transformation of J. H. O’Donnell, pairing Mike Mignola with Scott Allie again for the discovery of what drove the Bureau’s expert on ancient foes to near madness after a mission with Hellboy twenty-four years earlier. This supernatural thrill ride features art by B.P.R.D. newcomer Max Fiumara (Amazing Spider-Man) and a cover by Becky Cloonan.
That same month features the return of the regular B.P.R.D. team of Mike Mignola, John Arcudi, and Tyler Crook, with B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth: The Devil’s Engine. The Zinco Corporation again rears its ugly head after a devastating earthquake, pitting Devon and Fenix in an uneasy alliance against bat-faced monsters and the evil empire’s other mad-science experiments! Additionally, this new series will feature covers by former Hellboy artist Duncan Fegredo!
Finally, Cameron Stewart returns to the B.P.R.D. universe in June with B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth­: Exorcism! In this story we learn more about Ashley Strode’s evolution as an agent after she meets up with a familiar face for a series of exorcisms in a rural Indiana town. Mike Mignola and Cameron Stewart team up to share writing duties, with pencils by Cameron and covers by Viktor Kalvachev!
Let’s break some stuff that can’t be fixed. Let’s turn some corners where there’s no going back” said Mike Mignola. “In both Hellboy and B.P.R.D., we’re saying, “Well, once we do this—once we round this corner—that’s it!” It’s not like, “Oh, Batman, different costume.” We’re doing stuff where there’s no way to fix it. That is the new reality in our world. You're REALLY going to see that in 2012.”
B.P.R.D. is sure to be the most-talked-about series of the coming year, as the team stands at the brink of the end of the organization and the world itself!
It’s all going to hell in 2012!

Walking Dead Recap S2E6: Secrets


Carl is finally up and about. He and Lori feed the chickens. Patricia gathers up chickens nearby, breaking their legs, preparing to feed it to the zombies, when a horse goes running across the property, maybe its Nelly. Patricia throws her bag of injured chickens to the hungry masses. What a waste of good chickens. She watches them rip apart the poor birds.

Glen keeps an eye on the barn, he hasn’t told the others. Maggie brings him some peaches, and she tries to get him to keep her secret. Dale and T-Dog try to talk to him, but Glen avoids them, burdened with guilt.
Andrea goes to apologize to Daryl for shooting him. He forgives her for her intention, but warns her the next time she shoots him he better be dead.

Glen urges Lori to tell Rick of her pregnancy. He begs her to take his rations if she’s not willing to tell Rick, someone needs to take care of her. And he has a point she’s too skinny, even before it was revealed she was pregnant I was thinking the girl needed a burger or five. She is super slim this year.

Rick plots out today’s scavenger hunt for Sophia watch. Glen delivers peaches, and struggles not to tell Rick of Lori’s condition. Patricia and Beth ask to take part in gun training, but Rick has to get Hershel’s okay. 
They tell him that he gave his consent, but he goes to talk to Hershel himself. Carl ask Shane to train him too, but Shane tells him that he has to talk to his parents. Shane finds a gun on Carl, and takes it away. Lori isn’t comfortable letting Carl train, but Rick sees the benefits, and even suggests that Shane is the best person to do it. Lori finally agrees to allow it.

The group sets out for some gun practice, and Dale catches Glen in a lie. Glen is holding too many secrets and he spills both to Dale.

Andrea shows some skills with weapons. And Shane looks haunted.

Dale has a talk with Hershel. Looks like the horse seen earlier was Nervous Nelly, she went back in her stall. Dale asks Hershel about the zombie barn. Hershel doesn’t see the zombies as dead, only as sick people. Dale tries to reason with Hershel, but he’s holding onto a hope that just isn’t there. Seems that they knew about the zombie in the well, they left that “person” there, and Dale and the rest killed him. Dale tells him that they can make the barn more secure, but Hershel tells him its already secure, and asks him to just keep it to himself. He doesn’t trust the group, especially where his “sick people” are concerned.

Lori goes to help Hershel with the fences, and asks after Carl. She thanks him for all he’s done. She tells him they will earn their keep, and he makes it clear they should more on soon. Seems that Rick failed to mention they weren’t welcome once everyone was well.

Shane takes Andrea for some advance target practice. He riles her, pushing her too hard when she can’t hit a moving target. She walks away frustrated.

Lori asks Rick about them leaving. Rick admits that he knew, but he’s working on changing Hershel’s mind. Rick didn’t want to scare Lori, and he can’t stand to lose her faith in him.

Andrea tries to walk back to camp, and Shane gives a half-hearted apology for bringing her dead sister into it. Shane tries a different olive branch and asks her to be his back up on his Sophia hunt.

The smell of food makes Lori ill, and Dale notices. She tries to play it off, but he already knows. She tells him that she hasn’t told Rick yet, and Dale asks if its because of Shane. Lori has regrets about Shane, but she thought Rick was dead. And she worries about the baby growing up in the dark world they now live in.

Glen chops wood, and he apologizes when he sees Lori. But she isn’t mad. She’s ready to take him up on his offer of help. Glen plans another store run, and Maggie goes along. She’s upset that Glen spilled the beans. Maggie is unsure about the zombies, she still sees them as people too. When Maggie asks Glen what they’re there for, she’s mad that he keeps Lori’s secret. He splits up the list, and they go searching. A zombie grabs her, and I think her viewpoint on zombies changed, as Glen kills it to protect her.
Shane and Andrea find themselves in a nice quiet neighborhood.

Maggie is a little pissed when she comes back to camp, attacking Lori. Glen catches up to her, and he blames himself for what happened. She kisses him, and tells him that she can’t stand the idea of him becoming one of them.

Shane and Andrea go house to house searching for Sophia. They find all sorts of horrors, but no Sophia. The once quiet streets are suddenly crawling with walkers. And the two of them have to shoot their way out. Andrea finally finds her confidence and shoots the moving targets with accuracy.

Glen goes to Lori, whose shaken up still after Maggie’s attack. She feels bad for putting Glen in danger, but he’s the one that offered. He asks if the morning after pills would work, and he gives her prenatal vitamins just in case, and leaves the decision in her hands, but suggests that maybe she shouldn’t make the choice alone.

Andrea is pleased with herself, she and Shane drive away. She makes a move on him, and things get a little frisky in the car.

Lori contemplates the pills, taking them all, but she immediately regrets the decisions, and makes herself throw them back up.

Shane and Andrea return, they give Carol the news, they found nothing. Which at this point is good news, at least they didn’t find Sophia’s body. Dale asks what happened out there, neither spills the beans, but Dale suspects something and confronts Shane. Dale suggests Shane should leave, for the best of the group. Dale suspects that Shane hasn’t been so truthful about the night he went to the high school with Otis. He knows what kind of man Shane is, Shane denies it, but makes a veiled threat about his accusations. Don’t poke the tiger Dale, Andrea isn't worth it and don't bet that Lori really wants him gone.

Rick stumbles across Lori’s stash of meds Glen got her, and he draws unfortunate but accurate conclusions. He goes to find her, expecting the worse, and she realizes that the cat is out of the bag. She tells him they can’t leave because she’s pregnant, she didn’t take the morning after pills, she threw them up. He wants to know how long she knew, and he’s a little mad she confided in Glen rather than him. She admits how scared she is of the future, and he softens towards her. He wants the baby more than anything, but he won’t force her into anything. He asks for honesty, and she tells him about Shane. He knew. He gives her the it’s ok, it was the end of the world and you thought I was dead. And they leave it at that.

Angel and Faith #4

As a reminder: ALL REVIEWS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS

Publication Date: November 30, 2011
Format: FC, 40 pages
Price: $2.99
UPC: 7 61568 18152 4 00411

Last time, we saw Angel he was hell bent on getting Mohra blood and bringing Giles back from the dead, thinking that by fixing his latest debacle he’d be back on the path of righteousness. Angel and Faith had located the last known vials, since the Mohra killed himself, and were in the middle of a drag out brawl to keep their prize.

Now, Pearl and Nash make a mess of the auction, and Angel vamps out, but it’s Faith who has the upper hand and  walks away with the vial of Mohra blood. Even though Faith continues to follow Angel, she has plans of her own. Plans that don’t include taking on half demon spawn, or magic blood, but plans that come closer to normalcy for Angel.

And just before she’s about to make an irrevocable choice, the choice is taken out of her hands, and what they find is the last thing they expected. In a world devoid of magic, seems someone has turned to science, and created their very own Island of Dr Moreau in their basement, without the cute furriness.

Pearl and Nash are up to some tricks, but what they intend is still left to be seen. Which is probably bad, badder, and baddest for our favorite brooding vampire. As Faith delivers good news, she gets bad news in return, maybe some really bad news.

Christos Gage delivers another great chapter to the Angel and Faith saga. His twists are delightful and the remains storytelling is very fluid, this series should not be missed by any fan of the Whedonverse.

The Strain #1

As a reminder: ALL REVIEWS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS

Publication Date: December 14, 2011
Format: FC, 32 pages
Price: $1.00
UPC: 7 61568 19174 5 00111

The last of the three big teasers of San Diego Comic Con, Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan's The Strain is finally released. The art is by the amazing Mike Huddleston, and he holds nothing back in this first issue.

The story begins with a giant of a tale, and the victims left in his wake told by a grandmother in Romania, 1927.

In the present day, across the world, a father and son try their hand at bonding, but between the ex wife calling and the father's job, things aren't going smoothly.

There's a quarantine at JFK, and all reports are saying so far that an entire plane of passengers coming from Berlin are dead, and its Ephraim's job to figure out why.

In six minutes everything changed drastically for the plane, and when the plane finally opens, everything will change drastically for the entire world, even if they don't know it yet, but the little boy from Romania, now an old man, knows what's coming. 

It's a strong opening. Although not a lot in way of action so far, the story is immediately intriguing. Del Toro is fantastic at creating worlds on the big screen, I cannot wait to see what he and Hogan have planned. This is going to be the series to watch, and $1.00 for the first issue is a steal. If you haven't picked it up already, do it! You won't be disappointed.

Dark Horse Presents #6

As a reminder: ALL REVIEWS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS

Publication Date: November 23, 2011
Format: FC, 80 pages
Price: $7.99
UPC: 7 61568 17843 2 00611

Dark Horse Presents is back with issue #6. These anthologies are great for an introduction into the varied offerings of Dark Horse, with the wide assortment of stories, there’s always something for everyone.

This month kicks off with Resident Alien Chapter 3. In the ongoing saga of the visitor trying to blend in and hide out, all the while assisting the police in their high profile investigation. Good thing it’s a small town, otherwise this might lead to disaster, or it might anyways. There’s been a string of murders and the very people who are suppose to be preventing them, may just know more than they’re letting on. The entire town is full of secrets and the Alien is enjoying himself a little too much discovering them, taking too many risks that could spell disaster.

Finder: Third World Chapter 6 In true Ghostbusters style the Finder gets his jobs done. Sent with the  process server, the job seems easy enough, but nothing is ever really simple in his world. This storyline always throws me off since I never know what to expect, and this one is no exception.

The Adventures of Dog Mendonça and Pizzaboy Chapter 3 Always a highlight of the set, opens with Dog sitting poolside, with Pizzaboy and the little girl demon reading last month’s issue. I adore the tongue in cheekiness of Dog. But he turns serious as he continues his saga of his flight with the circus freaks. Finally free they face a tough road to what they hope is salvation, many don’t make it, close friends are lost, and Dog finishes his story. Let’s hope they tell Pizzaboy’s or Pazuul the demon in a little girl’s body next. She doesn't talk, but I'm sure Dog can find a way to make it work.

Beast of Burden: Story Time- The Dogs recant the story of the pack, a group of elite dogs and humans who fought together for the king during the dark ages focusing on two members Alric and Bitan. The story is used to teach the young ones a lesson, or is it?

Change: This is Fabio Moon’s first offering for Dark Horse Presents. The guy takes a chance, and changes his life. It’s quick, it’s cute, it speaks directly to the reader in and actual and roundabout way. The short story makes for a very nice, for a first impression.

Blood Chapter 5: Plunging your sword through the heart of your minion is one way to get your message across, but not exactly effective if you need something done, even if he can get a new body. It’s a bloody inconvience. Neal Adams is a master story crafter and he proves it with every stroke of his pen. Blood fights on, taking as much damage as he’s dishing out, all the while wondering how much more he can take, since he’s already taken more than he ever imagined possible, and as the winds of change roll through Blood hopes to be the one left standing.

Criminal Macabre: Die, Die, My Darling, Chapter 3- Cal McDonald is tired of playing games, but Fate is cruel mistress, and if he wants to keep is unlife he’ll have to continue to play. But before Cal can dash off on his next quest he’s got to shut his smart mouth and learn a ghoulish lesson. When Cal finally comes face to face with his intended killer, its not at all what he expected, and forces him to do a drastic course change, destiny be damned. Steve Niles is a genius, and I adore his writing more and more every time I see his work.

Number 13 Chapter 5- Number 13 doesn’t understand Lorna’s intentions, but the result is the same, and he must figure his way now. As blame flies memories return, and they aren’t happy ones, they aren’t ones he wants to believe even if the proof is before him. This is one series that always leaves me with more questions than answers, that I’m always threatening to quit, but like a bad habit I always find myself at it again.

Marked Man Chapter 6 Some are looking for answers, while some think they’ve finally found theirs. Father and Son are too busy patting themselves on the back to realize they’ve screwed up again, now with all the pieces in motion again, this one gets good winding the story back up.

Skeleton Key: Room Service- Fox spirit Kitsune and school girl Tamsin use their magic key to try to find their way home, but they stumble into the Artemis Hotel who could use some help with a ghost. Kitsune takes the job for donuts, and what they find isn’t at all what they expected. It’s a cute way to close out another excellent issue.
