STAFF PICKS :: HE-MAN: THE ETERNITY WAR #7 :: JULY 1, 2015

June 30, 2015 By: Karla Marsh Category: Reviews, Spotlight on New Releases, Staff Picks

staff_picks

karla_staff_picksKARLA’S PICK :: HE-MAN: THE ETERNITY WAR #7: Yeah, yeah, yeah…I know, BIG SURPRISE! My pick for the week is He-Man: The Eternity War #7. That’s almost like me saying, “Hey guys, you know what I REALLY like? BREATHING!! Breathing is AWESOME!!” All obviousness aside, however, I AM picking this issue for a reason other than my true and undying love of all things Masters of the Universe. Issue #7 picks up with a new creative team. Rob David and Dan Abnett take the story-crafting reigns for this arc while Edgar Salazar’s pencils bring a slightly edgier look to the Masters. The changes in artistic style are bold, but not detrimental as the story picks up with Skeletor, She-Ra and Skeletor’s minions trying to find a way to best Hordak now that Evil-Lyn has betrayed them. The story is solid and offers more insight into the current incarnation of Skeletor! There’s also some good moments with Shadow Weaver which made me happy! (I want more Princess of Power characters in my Master’s of the Universe!) The cover by Jonboy Meyers is also worth mentioning because, if you look closely, you can see twisted versions of classic She-Ra characters Madame Razz, Kowl and Glimmer in the mix!

STAFF PICKS :: IMAGINE AGENTS #2 :: NOVEMBER 20, 2013

November 18, 2013 By: Karla Marsh Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

staff_picks karla_staff_picksKARLA’S PICK :: IMAGINE AGENTS #2: I had quite the ensemble of beloved imaginary cohorts as I child, which is why when my fellow Heroes staffer (and Store Manager extraordinaire) Justin recommended Imagine Agents to me last month, I picked it up and devoured it! (Don’t be silly…I didn’t actually EAT the book, I’m not Tony Chu!) Imagine Agents is a new book from BOOM! Studios written by Brian Jones and illustrated by Bachan. It’s an intriguing concept about an organization of “Men In Black” style agents who’s job it is to wrangle up imaginary friends after the children they befriended have outgrown them(tragic!! Right??!!). Some of those imaginary counterparts are the best friends and confidants to the children they belong to, and others are chaotic terrors who reek havoc and mayhem wherever they go, leaving their pre-adolescent benefactors to take the blame. I truly enjoyed the heck out of issue #1 (which we still have in stock!) and can’t wait to see what happens next in this 4 part series!imagineagents_02_cvr_copy(2)

STAFF PICKS :: PORCELAIN: A GOTHIC FAIRY TALE :: JULY 24, 2013

July 18, 2013 By: Karla Marsh Category: Staff Picks, Uncategorized

staff_picks
karla_staff_picksKARLA’S PICK :: PORCELAIN: A GOTHIC FAIRY TALE: What can I say? I’m a sucker for a creepy fairy tale. That’s why my pick this week is Porcelain: A Gothic Fairy Tale by Benjamin Read and Chris Wildgoose. As most classic fairy tales do, it starts off with an unfortunate soul. This time, the tale of woe begins with a young orphan girl referred to only as “Child” who lives off of the streets, and begs, steals and cheats to stay alive. Child attempts to steal from the wealthy Porcelain Maker, an alchemist who might be much more than he seems. From there, the story weaves a fascinating, and dark, fairy tale that I can’t wait to get my hands on! The art for this story is really quite stunning, which I was charmed to see from an artist who’s last name seems like it was plucked from the pages of a fairy tale in the first place! I mean, really? Wildgoose?? OF COURSE he should illustrate a fairy tale! It seems only fitting.
