Puppet Master: Curtain Call (#1)

Well, it's time to say goodbye to some mini madness and gore as Puppet Master is moving on from Action Lab comics but, not before we say goodbye to everyone who has made this run so amazing. This issue has everything that we have come to love and enjoy in this run as everything now comes full circle in this final bloody battle that we have been waiting for! I have been pleased overall with everything I have read between these pages so far. The art is as amazing as the story. It is simple and fun and would be worthy of making any of these stories a new Puppet Master movie. Great job as I cannot WAIT to read the next issue!

Hellblazer (#16)

Well John Constantine is off to San Francisco to figure out what happened to an old friend while it turns onto a giant mess! Basically, it ends with John framed for another murder. I am starting to think that it may becoming DC's go to for this beloved character. Yes, the story and art are great and this new killer is really interesting in how they frame him but, to have the same type of basic plot for 2 stories in a row? It scares me as a fan as that could start to show me that they have no idea what to do with the character anymore.

Glitterbomb: The Fame Game (#3)

Well, this Lovecraften monster is loose on LA and it looks like her 15 minutes of fame fading away is the least of her worries. The art and story are top notch as we are nearing the completion as all the pieces are now falling into place and making a lot of sense now then it did even an issue ago. This series has been a lot of bloody fun as it asks what would we do to get that fame that so many people crave. It is sad the limits people will go but the revenge for being used? That's where the fun of this issue can be found!

Goosebumps: Monsters at Midnight (#1)

Growing up, there was a constant in my life as I LOVED Goosebumps! Those books were classic and remain a great part of my childhood to this day. Now, IDW has recreated this classic series with this new comic series. The first issue has that classic feel but, it seems to be missing that R.L. Stine magic to make it go over the top. I mean, it is enjoyable and I am happy with the end product but, it is missing that little piece to make it just magical! That one little bit to put it over the top and make it amazing. For fans, grab a copy as you'll enjoy it! For newbies, if you like this get a copy of the classic original books; they'll blow your mind.

Hack/Slash: Resurrection (#1)

Cassie Hack is back doing what she does best! There are plenty of laughs to be had as the issue is filled with great art and an awesome story to go along with it. I am a huge fan of the franchise and I am loving the direction this seems to be heading with Hack heading to a camp to be a councilor! That's right folks! Oh! And did I mention that there were zombies roaming around? No? Well, there is a lot of fun to be had with this issue as this is the best we have seen in so long from Cassie Hack. there may not be a whole crew to go along with her but, who knows where all this will lead? I sure do miss Vlad though.
