Terrorism Orphaned. 0

Yeesh. After the crazy, intense introduction to the Orphan's in the first Protocol issue, issue 2 continues on with the Charlie's Angels, high intensity, fast action story.Michael Alan Nelson is able to get a large cast introduced so you actually care about some of them by the end. You also hate em. It is obvious that this is an espionage, spy, anti-terrorist organization, group, what-have-you, but what is really interesting about this whole story so far is who the heck are the 'grandparents' an...

A Family Friendly Time Spanning Space Tale. 0

This comic was a last minute impulse buy for me this week. I usually can't go wrong with BOOM! Studios stuff so when something of theirs seems even mildly interesting I've learned to just get it.Upon first glance when I received my issue and cracked it open I noticed this is some kind of Boom! Studios imprint or something. It's called 'Boom! Box'. Uh oh, did I accidentally buy some little kid or teenager-safe book? Well, not officially but I guess I did. It's no biggie though as while it appears...

Nyarlathotep Survives Another Day 0

At long last the next Fall of Cthulhu series has started!One Ancient God seems to have survived the Godwar and already he is plotting the fall of humanity.  The Fall of Cthulhu series is by far the best H. P. Lovecraft-ish comic out there today.  It's been incredibly loyal to Lovecraft's mythos and seeing all the Gods and settings in each issue is a real treat for a huge Lovecraft fan such as myself.While following the Lovecraftian settings and using his creations, that is not to say that this i...

Supergirl Still Flying High Still Learning the Lessons 0

First off let me say this... man, did Supergirl ever get shafted.  No, not that kind of shafted, the bad kind.  Earth's leaders abolish all Kryptonians except for Superman?  I know Supergirl's been basically the brat Paris Hilton of superheroes most of this series but it's not like Hilton is a threat and has ever been behind bars... wait bad example.Supergirl is a criminal in the eyes of humanity now.  Alright, well that doesn't faze out favorite superskirt!  She just keeps on plugging away at t...

Weakest Issue of the Current Season 0

Wow, it seems like so long ago I read the last issue of Jungle Girl Season 2.  I think I'll have to go back and re-read it again I've forgotten what the heck is going on!In issue 4 of this five part series, Jana the Jungle Girl is still up for sacrifice to some ancient god.  Throughout the story it becomes quite apparent that this is becoming quite Lovecraftian in influence.The issue itself doesn't really have much story in it at all.  I'd have to say it was one of the weakest in the series.  Oh...

If Released On Schedule, Could Be Good! 2

The Phantom has been rebooted...AGAIN! Well, actually only the second time by their current U.S. publisher, Moonstone comics.  Why?  Who knows, perhaps they wanted a new number one issue to try and get Phans to jump on?Apparently writer this is something writer Mike Bullock wanted so whatever, it doesn't look like it's going to be anything super different from the stories that Mr. Bullock has been doing for the past Moonstone Phantom issues.I have really loved Mike Bullocks writing in the past s...

Phantom Delays Took The Excitement of This Issue Away 0

I love The Phantom.  This is the guy whose kept me interested single-handedly in comic books.  The Moonstone product has helped that immensely by updating the story to present day issues.  I am however choked at just how long it took to get this part five of this final issue in the series (apparently a reboot is coming or something like that). What like half a year!??!!?  I have been following Moonstone's Phantom for a long time now and that wait was just ridiculous.  I am all for small publishe...

Enjoyable Introduction to Sheena, the Queen of the Jungle. 0

I don't know much about Sheena, Queen of the Jungle other than I fell in love with Tanya Roberts back in the eighties when I was a kid and saw the movie.  That was long ago though, and I doubt I could barely even get thrugh that film nowadays.  However, an updated Sheena I think I can handle.After reading this 99 cent issue (listed as issue 0), I see some close similarity to Moonstone's Phantom comic in that they both take place in a modern day Africa.  I really enjoy the Phantom, so this Sheena...

Jana Sky-Born is Back! 1

It's been a while but one of my favourites of late is back... Frank Cho's Jungle Girl!For those of you that have enjoyed the first volume, Sheena type stories, or perhaps even Cho's Marvel Shanna the She-Devil, you'll all enjoy this series.In this issue we rejoin our characters left over from the end of the first volume while they are watching something that looks like the Space Shuttle crash landing on another side of the island.  Guess what happens next?  Jungle Girl and her companions head ou...

Supergirl to Learn More Lessons in Life. 0

Good.  I have been looking for some decent Supergirl stories.  Superman?  If you are a fan of his then well, there are enough comics from DC that he is in... I can't even keep up with them all.  Supergirl however, she's in a few crossovers here and there and her own comic (which hasn't really been that great actually).  I am hoping for a better Supergirl story with this miniseries.It starts out all fine and dandy, Supergirl is covering for Supes but gets her butt kicked, then like always, Supes ...

Details of the Bomb Queen's New Rivals Slow This One Down 0

Chillin' With Da Villains slowly progresses the latest Bomb Queen story along.  You find out the traumas that the various characters have gone through in life, forced into turning tricks to support their daughter, allowing boyfriends to fool around with their kids, and all kinds of that type of stuff.  Obviously the writer wants us to be a little sympathetic to the Bomb Queen's new nemesis.  Did it work?  Nah, not really.  This issue also shows the secret agency that is trying to rid the world o...

Boo Cat Bores Again. 1

Another light hearted story in the Tarot series, Haunted Hairball is pretty lame.  The issue is mainly from Boo's (the were-cat) point of view and how much she really wants to play with Tarot.  Unfortunately Tarot's cat is sick... his hairballs are haunted.The story jerks about here and there leaving me once in a while to think I had missed a page.  This issue had really poor story flow.  The nudity in this issue has also kicked it up a notch.  While Boo, Tarot, and her cat Pooka continue trying...

Supergirl Finally Realizes Her Importance is Unique. 1

Acceptance.  That is the name of this issue and the story shows us that Supergirl, through all of her trials and tribulations up to this point in the series, has accepted her destiny.  She fianlly realizes her role and responsibility.  She finds out why her parents realy sent her to Earth.  She finds out just how important she is.  For so long she has felt like a second rate Superman, or like just another Earthen hero.  Kara didn't feel that she belonged and she was right.  She now realizes why,...

The Three Kittens Tell Us Their Story. 0

Ah, now I see what this issue is.  The Witches and Kittens story line is essentially Jim Balent's tribute to the troops out there in Iraq.  I still don't understand what the heck is going on with Hussein even being in this story but what ever, it the comics!  Balent by the end of this issue really pours it on about Iraq and gives kuds to the troops quite a bit here.One major turning point I like (as always in this series, assisted by the ever so lovely Raven Hex), was that just when I was wonder...

Don't mess with the Bomb Queen 0

Ah I haven't read  a Bomb Queen issue in quite some time.  I had forgotten jsut how much I enjoy them.  This issue has so many different cameos with various other Image characters it's just a ittle too much.  Blacklight is back from her one-shot with the Bomb Queen.  It liked her alter-ego, but not really this superhero character.  Luckily for me, the supervillian in town is as good as always.  The comic looks like it is going to setup a grand scale meeting on the Bomb Queen's turf.  The Bomb Qu...

Tarot, Kittens, Latex, and Saddam Hussein? 0

Witches and Kittens , Part One appears to be a merging of some other characters into the series.  There are a whole bunch of other large breasted girls running around causing chaos, so many that it is difficult to keep track of everyone.  One person in particular that is kind of freaky to see in this issue is Saddam Hussein.  What is with that?  Is this the real Saddam?  It so far appears to be that way.The big three (Tarot, Raven Hex, and Skeleton Man), make only slight cameo appearances in thi...

Every One is Out to Get The Phantom. Terror Alert! 0

Wow. This is one heck of an ambitious story. It feels that all characters that have ever been introduced in Moonstone's series is entering into the fray! For those that came in late... you may not get as much out of this five parter due to the interesting reunion of different characters that have been introduced in this series in the past. However, it is not that imported. It is just an added bonus. This series as a must read so far. Yes, I know that this is a five parter and that there s...

What's With All the She-Males?!? 0

Part two of Queen of Hearts is over and let me tell you...I am really let down on how useless Drama Queen was. Sheesh, I don't think I even say any lines for her except for 'I broke a nail!'.Oh well, so much for her being a favourite. Incidentally I really like this multicultural aspect. Ice Queen I think is an Asian, Scream Queen is black, Drama is a blonde, and I am not too certain on what Bomb Queen is... looks white to me, but it would be kind of cool if they made her an American indian o...

Bomb Girl's Ride to Glory 0

Cool. It looks like this mini series is going to dish out the secret origin of the Bomb Queen. It looks like they also will go into more detail with the other three Queens that have been mentioned before. I really dig that huge giant naked Drama Queen. I kinda wish there was a series on her! I'm a sucker for 'Attack of the 50' Woman'- types.This first issue really begins to show the mental state of the Bomb Queen. She's as hard as nails, but she meets some Brit that just wants to romance h...

Cheesy, Unintelligent One Off. 0

I usually like one-shots that merge different characters from various books. It introduces me to new stuff that I may like. However a major unfortunate trade-off on these this that the stories are usually lame. Which this one is of course. The cheesy teenaged comic book nerds are out at a comic convention where sexy Bomb Queen and a new here called Blacklight do battle. Blacklight is apparently from a comic series called Shadowhawk or something or other. I have to check it out later.Catfig...

Tomboy Queen, Not Really Sexy, But Fantastic Nonetheless! 0

This Bomb Queen story is getting pretty fantastic! I like this adult themed super villain story along with all the the writer's potshots at pop culture and society. In this issue is the super huge battle between Bomb Queen and newly arrived hero Ace Justice. Also we find out just how ambitious future mayor hopeful Robert Woods is. I don't really know exactly what Woods is up to, the writer has done a good job at making him untrustworthy even though he so far has only had good motives... unti...

A New Villainess 0

While just browsing around I happened upon this title and it peaked my interest. A comic about a villain with no heroes to go against? What is that all about? Of course the Bomb Queen and her fabulous thong are quite prominent as well, perhaps that assisted in my purchasing decision.The tale is an odd one. One not quite dissimilar to what our major capitalist societies are experiencing. It looks like society is bored. Bored with everything and their lives that reality television is the norm...

Bomb Queen and the Too Tight Man in Tights Square Off! 0

The Bomb Queen continues her reign of regular terror on her city. A new hero 'Ace' from Texas shows up to stop out favourite evil beauty. The new mayor condidate appears to be coming on strong.All types of exciting stuff is happening with the Bomb Queen in this issue. I have to admit it is totally wide open for me. I have no idea where this is going or can go. This comic is a little unprecedented. It could be that the Bomb Queen will see the light by the end of this series and become a her...

Abused Girl Gets Hers. 0

I've read some bad things on the internet about anything to do with the Friday the 13th comics. I have never been a big fan of the whole franchise but it has had its moments. I decided to give this one a try. It is a one shot so there isn't really any kind of long term investment in it.The Abuser and the Abused is the story of an abused high school girl. She gets beat up all the time by her boyfriend. Finally she has had enough!The story itself was fine by itself, throwing in Jason Voorhees...

I Still Am Having Trouble Believing Diana's Fate. 0

I am beginning to think they really did kill off the Phantom's wife!I suppose I'll have to see what happens by the fifth part but the grieving family of Kit, Heloise, and the Phantom are kind of tipping me off to the fact that this very well may be a permanent thing.The thing I really like about this series is how they are really doing a great job updating the Phantom to make him relevant to the times. He is confronting all the civil unrest and terrorism that is in Africa and not only does he p...

The Issue Your Girlfriend Should Check Out 3

Okay if I was to try to get my girlfriend into this comic this is the one to give her. Mudwart and the goblins are these little cute things that worship their queen, Raven Hex. Hell, I'd worship Raven Hex myself!It's pretty neat that someone created a character page for Mudwart. I just checked it out and noticed he's in a couple of more Tarot issues.While I am not all into super-cutesy things, for a change of pace this was a pretty cool comic. I enjoyed it quite a bit. Tarot's okay and the ...

Demons Released Through Video Games! 0

Digital Demons is a nice little story. This one guy, buys a video game unit, unlocks demons that aren't just in the game and spends the rest of his life trying to vanquish them.In comes out good ol' Skeleton Man and his girl Tarot. After this poor videogamer is paralyzed in a battle against a demo her requires some help. Who better than Tarot and Skeleton Man?There are some net small twists in this issue and while Tarot really doesn't have much to do in here, the characters of this guy and hi...

Why Not Save More? 0

Supergirl's quick trip to the future in the previous issue I think has ignited a spark. I don't know what that futuristic assassin was trying to accomplish by killing Supergirl, but I think it had an opposite effect. If he never tried to kill Supergirl, I really don't think she'd all of a sudden be on this mission, or seem so driven all of a sudden.Instead of saving people one at a time why not save billions? Supergirl wants to cure cancer and has enlisted Resurrection Man and a nano-scientis...

Supergirl Can't Do No Right. 0

Breakpoint at face value doesn't seem like that great of a story, but it actually is.Supergirl and Superman are teaming up to thwart Reactron. The story shows the rection Supergirl gets by citizens when she tries to help them. They feel like second rate citizens that Supergirl is helping them and not Superman. She even makes a slight mistake to a little boy and now must try to rectify it. I don't know if she can (that's for the next issue) but I actually feel bad for her. Nothing in this is...

My Mind is Totally Messed Up With This Issue. 0

This is an oddity for this series. In the beginning we see Batman and Superman. Batman basically is there to ask Supergirl what was she thinking when she receives a strange box that uses all her known weaknesses to hide what is in it.All of a sudden we meet up with Superman who gives Supergirl a mission. The Green Lanterns and Superman are at war with somebody, I know this must have to do with that huge story line that DC had which of course I know nothing about but whatever. Perhaps that is...

Upset Supergirl a Highlight of the Issue. 0

It's too early and too little of the story has been told for me to really fairly judge this issue. I don't know who Karate Kid and this Triplicate Girl are, nor do I really care...does he still do that one foot swan kick anyhow?what I do care about it the character of Supergirl. I am still wary of her personality. I fear her personality from the beginning of this series may creep back in. It hasn't so far and there really is no reason for me to fear it. It's just that I really want to like ...

Supergirl Shows She Can Be Noble. 0

This apparently ties in with Amazons Attack which I have not read but that being said I still thought this was a great issue. I am really becoming relieved that Supergirl seems to be a different character than the horrible teenager they had spent the first 19 issues on.This entire series seems to endure that Supergirl has to feel guilty about something and the status quo is kept in this one. I'm not too sure why everyone is blaming her and Wonder Girl for a plane hi-jacking (none other than Ai...

Can Moonstone Actually Kill Off Diana? 0

The Phantom and what seems like all of his Moonstone - issued enemies return for their revenge.Tragedy strikes as the Phantom's wife Diana seems to have been killed. I don't believe that for a second but you never know. Moonstone has been weaving in current events to the Phantom storylines and heck, I doubt King Features who own the Phantom characters would allow it but hey, it could happen.Checkmate is a five parter and it looks like Moonstone is throwing everything into it, EVERY character ...

It Ends, Thankfully. 0

Wow. Talk about one heckuva misleading cover for a comic. This had nothing to do with any kind of 'death of Superman' whatsoever!This issue was the total wrap up of the Supergirl comic story to date. Everything I hated about her throughout the entire run I think may very well have been resolved and going forward may not be an issue... hopefully.The issue itself is kind of cheesy. It's like meeting an old friend who just got out of AA and has to run around and apologize to everyone they've ev...

A Bright Light of Hope 0

I am quite excited by this issue. This is the kind of stuff in a comic that I am looking for. I found it to be a very creative change to the whole Superman/Supergirl mythology and after all those other poor issues, boy is it welcomed.I do have one surprise though. I was quite excited about this issue and when I logged into Comicvine to check out the issue's page there is a user's review that didn't like it. In fact, they recommended everything BEFORE this issue. What is with that? Yikes. H...

A Decent Story is Beginning 0

The Powerboy romance blossoms in this issue. Supergirl finds out just what this nice little guy is. Now the question remains at the end of the comic... what is that box and what has it done?I have to admit it was nice to see Supergirl, teenager and all, not take any abusive crap from her boyfriend. Finally Supergirl is showing some gusto and toughness.Love the Ones We Hurt carries on in a positive way from the last issue. I am beginning to become hopeful that salvation for this series may ve...

Love Triangles, but the Makes of a Possible Good One 0

Finally some complexity in this issue. This series has really lacked any kind of complexity in the stories whatsoever to this point. I suppose they think that Supergirl's mental state is complex enough. Well let me tell you something, if that's the case that won't entertain me for long.The series is still a Supergirl 90210 story. Now Supergirl has a bit of a love triangle, and it looks like one is a little too obsessed with her.We get to meet Batgirl in this issue which is a pretty cool figh...

Teenaged Supergirl is Like Scratches on a Chalkboard. 0

I hate this Supergirl. . Perhaps because this whole theme that Supergirl is trying to 'find herself'. I cringe every time I see that in this comic. Perhaps because I know some crazy girls that say that as well and it was overused by them to not accept responsibility and it appears the writers of this Supergirl know the same girls.At least in this episode there is an honourable hero, Terra. I also liked the baddie in this one too, the empathic dinosaur. The dinosaur at least was honourable t...

Retreading What Was Once Told. 1

We appear to be going through it all over again. Supergirl still hasn't found a place where she belongs. She's tried high school, quitting, and now trying to join a team such as the Outsiders.When is this going to end? Is this whole series going to be like this? Supergirl lost, lonely, wants a family, maybe some friends and a place to belong?Oh well, from what I see there are less than twenty issues of this comic but in twenty issues there should be enough substance for one to like it. I am...

90210: Brenda erm I mean Supergirl Goes to High School. 1

Secret Identities is a story that has been told so many times it isn't really worth repeating. I suppose this issue is for those fifteen year old girls or younger that haven't read/seen/heard a story so similar to this it's ridiculous.We get to see Supergirl try her hand at the high school thing. She get friends, tries to help out an ostracized youth, it backfires, she's teased, and yadda yadda yadda. Supergirl apparently doesn't have the patience to hack it.Oh well, I'm not much for these hi...
