So war is at hand as the new miniseries begins. The Maw is looking to take down the Tin Kin and the Amoni look to reap the benifits. As well, we get more of a story of what happened to bring about the end of mankind and the rise of animals with thought. I like the story and art that is presented in the issues and I cannot wait until August to see where this all leads.
So Morningstar has a son as he is brought to a small town to meet his girlfriend's parents. One joke leads to something grander and now it is time for her to meet his family. This is a great issue that, although doesn't feature Lucifer at all, hints at so much more as a new story begins in Hell! Judging by where the last issue left off and where this one is headed, there is plenty of enjoyable stuff in the coming issues of Lucifer ahead!
The truth is out and the mystery to all is solved! This was an exciting conclusion to the current storyline that ties up everything while setting up the next one nicely. We found out who wounded Lucifer and who murdered God...and it all my shock you. Vertigo has done a great job in bringing back one of their greatest characters. Bravo guys, it is a job well done.

Constantine: The Hellblazer (#12)
So it appears that John has his hands tied as he can't help out a friend. However, he may have found a way around it all as only John can with the help of some old friends (JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK!). Things are looking up as the twists and turns seem to be leading somewhere as there is a change in artists. Though it looks good, I lied the art from the series before better. Maybe it was because of the change or I just got used to the awesomeness and this may grow on me...who knows. It's another solid issue as they build even more as only John Constantine can. Yea, I like it that they brought the Hellblazer back in his full glory!
Big Trouble in Little China (#24)
The first of many battles between Lo Pan and Egg take place during the great earthquake. After some trickery, Lo Pan leaves and Jack Burton gets outsmarted. ..as usual! The story ends in the 80s where Jack is back....but they still got 30 years to go as it all comes full circle. It seems that it all comes to the end after the next issue. One part of me is sad that it will be ending but I am glad that it is ending on a high note instead of the low point that was the initial post Carpenter/Powell issues. It has picked up steamed and will be ending on a high note if it does come to an end next issue.
Iron Maiden (one shot)
Run to...your local comic shop and grab your self a copy of this great telling of the story of legends known as Iron Maiden! It hits the highs and lows of the story in these 32 pages of awesome black and white art while mixing in a little back story of Eddie that mirrors the story that so many already know. The Rock and Roll Biography series is fun as they don't seem to take short cuts in anything that they do. Oh! And that front cover...AMAZING! Riggs himself would be proud of the work done here! So for fans of Maiden, up the irons and grab a copy asap!

Ghostbusters International (#4)
So Paris, who you gonna call? Ghosts are flying about as the gang get into some trouble. There is a funny scene that involves ghosts at a burger joint back in New York while we are left asking more questions about the rich guy and his connection to Egon's cold case. There are many questions that we may have some answers to soon as IDW turned out another aesome issue with both great writing and art. Check it out if you don't believe me. So, I ask again, if you see a class 4 who are you going to call?

Hellboy in Hell (#9)
So, with my 300th comic review (damn that's a lot!) I am reviewing the newest Hellboy story where he is still in Hell. The issue opens up with some pissed off demons that are not liking the chaos in Hell...and they find the perfect scapegoat! Throw in the unexpected return of Hellboy's ex wife who has some answers about how he was drawn to the murder of Lucifer along with the reason he is in Hell and you have the beginnings of something HUGE! I don't know where it will lead as it could be to coming back to Earth or something else related. The story is fantastic and the art too as I am enjoying Hellboy and his trip to Hell. I think Mignola is too as everything is on the table with these issues as his options are very wide open. What more goods is he planning? I guess we'll find out when the next issue drops.
