So, after a trip to the "real" dimension that brought on some revelations to the movie Ghostbusters (like the fact that they have a pet ghost that they named and Janine's voice is similar), they find out just who is chasing them as he sends the hound after them to sniff them out. The issue ends with the final issue that concludes the series next month. There are plenty of laughs to be had and the art by Schoening is amazing. As well, long time fans will find plenty to enjoy in these stories overall because I know I am!

Okay, the post Eric Powell and John Carpenter issues are not pulling any punches or taking themselves seriously at all. They are fun and light hearted that will have you laughing in all the right places. Though I am not big on the art (especially the way they draw Jack Burton) the story itself is pretty good and has fully dispelled any worries I had. Good on you guys!
So Toulon and his friends are finally free of thier wooden prison and rejoined the land of flesh and bones. However, not all seems to be right as there appears to be a twist! These stories keep getting better as it evolves making reference to past movies along with awesome art. For fans, there is so much to love here! If you are not, what are you waiting for?
After a long wait, Hellboy and his adventures in Hell continue as he's very sick and has a fever dream about the world he left behind. This is classic Hellboy in that there is a lot going on in these pages as each story will flow into the next. I am really happy with the story so far I just hate the wait between issues. I mean, WHY MUST I WAIT SO LONG!? That is the way it goes I guess though. However, they are always worth the wait when they finally arrive.
So, there is a show turning people against each other, IA is coming down hard on the midnight shift and the doctor things he may finally have an answer for the flowers that keeps popping up all over! The story is starting to get intense and really shaping up nicely. The next issue seems like it will expand the story further and, as a fan of this series, I can't wait to read the next issue.

So, with my 200th comic review, I review the new issue of Escape from New York. Snake is in Canada before he heads down to New York as the story, thus far, comes full circle with the original film. The story, with the twist, is pretty good and the art, as you can see there was a change in artist, is pretty good. I prefer the original artist though as it made Snake look like Kurt Russell then he does now. Now, let's see where the story heads next and, if it will take us to Los Angeles too.

So, wow, um, I am speechless after seeing this movie..and not in a good way. You have a great performance by the master Robert Englund, Corey Taylor listening to himself, a murderer running around and a plot that makes little to no sense. Yea, overall, the movie is not great and leaves the viewer confused and disappointed over not only seeing it but by spending money on it. Then, it seems it leaves it open for a sequel....God help us! My fear is that there will be a number 2! I will say that the premise was interesting in theory. ..just in theory. The execution...not so much. Maybe if Kane Hodder and Danielle Harris stayed attached to the film it may have been better. Who knows if it could of been saved. So, one good thing and a thousand bad does not make it a good movie...redemption cannot be found in this chamber. So, stay away especially, if you have a fear of really bad movies.

So, we get to meet one of John's friends in his home. He's here to solve a murder and look for some help in catching the ghost murderer. What he finds is hatred and loneliness. There are patches of the classic Constantine character in his swagger and attitude and, as a whole, the series has been leaps and bounds better then the previous Constantine series DC released under the New 52 banner. As well, the story was pretty good. We are getting a sense of not only his current situation but his past as well. I wonder how this story line will unfold in the end and where will they go after.

Let's be honest shall we? If Stephen King wrote a children's book with drawings we'd have to read it! So, here we have his latest novel in Finders Keepers. Going off the tragedy from the beginning of Mr. Mercedes, in the first act, we are introduced to Pete and his family who were affected by it. As well we are introduced to Moriss who killed his favorite author for money and books of unpublished work only to end up in jail for something else. Act 2 has us being reintroduced to characters from the previous novel and setting up everything for act 3...when shit means shit and it all hits the fan! It is a good read that is not horror and not mystery per say. The ending though tells us that Mr. King is far from done with these characters though and that has me excited! Like a said, a good read for long time King fans as he stretches himself out to show what else he can do, incase there was any doubt anyway.

This issue is so much fun as the two Ghostbusters universes meet and bust some ghosts while not only looking how to get one back home but, who did this to begin with! A nice guest appearance by the Extreme Ghostbusters is a nice touch as people tend to forget that they even existed. So far, the first two issues have had me smiling from ear to ear like a child on Christmas morning! It is that good and, if you're a fan, you'll enjoy it as well.
So Snake is buried alive and reborn among the psychos we left him with last time. Things get bloody then they really get bloody as Snakes finds his way back home. ..then to New York! That's right! Full circle! This issue is action packed and doesn't let up as Snake is all action here! He is a man built to survive as he shows just why he has so many adoring fans. Wonder what he'll do back in New York. I guess we'll have to see won't we?

So, I'm starting to feel this story again after it has gotten some direction in the post Carpenter/Powell issues. Jack finds out more about the future as well as who has Pork Chop while we have an A-Team type group looking out for themselves in a solider of fortune type thing. Throw in some laughs and I am liking this issue more then the previous one. The doubts have been erased for the moment as it all makes a little more sense.
Here we have Jim and Drake chasing down the Gentleman Ghost as he steals jewels and women's breath along the way. The back story is one of lost love and the Specter makes am appearance. This was a good stand alone story that doesn't play into the current story. Maybe it will later on, who knows for sure. Not a bad story but, seemed a little generic. It was pulled off though with great art and story telling. Can't wait to get back to the main story though.
This is the new Shadow series and wow, is it explosive! I didn't read issue 0 but, there is enough to catch you up in the beginning of this new series. The Order of Magicians have captured Houdini's wife, trying to figure out the secret that his spirit told his wife. They call it the last great illusion. The Shadow knows this secret and wants to stop them before things get too bloody and chaotic. This issue has me wanting to read more as the next issue cannot come soon enough!
So, this new comic I found in Previews tells the story of Motherfather who remind me of the Stones meets Led Zeppelin. This is done like a documentary with some black magic and occult thrown in at the end. Right now, I can say that the issue isn't mind blowing but, it isn't bad either. It has my attention and makes me want to see the next issue. It's interesting but, until the ending, seems like a generic rock star tale. Let's see where this mini series takes us.
