Bond is assigned to hunt down and eliminate Kraken, a radical anti-capitalist who has targeted Britain’s newly-upgraded nuclear arsenal. But all is not as it seems. Hidden forces are plotting to rebuild the faded glory of the once-mighty British Empire, and retake by force what was consigned to history. 007 is a cog in their deadly machine – but is he an agent of change, or an agent of the status quo? Loyalties will be broken, allegiances challenged. But in an ever-changing world, there’s one man you can rely on: Bond. James Bond.


LOST BOYS #1 (DC Comics)

The stakes are raised in this nostalgic and unstoppable sequel to the ’80s cult classic vampire film, The Lost Boys.

Santa Carla, California is on edge. The eccentric coastal town and haven for the undead was finally returning to “normal” after its last supernatural scuffle left the local coven’s head vampire dead and gave newcomers Michael and Sam Emerson a housewarming both violent and bizarre. Now the brothers must once again team up with militant vampire hunters Edgar and Allan Frog when a new gang of ruthless, stunning, life-sucking nightcrawlers known as the Blood Belles emerges from the aftermath to collect Michael’s love interest and their lost sister, Star.


MOSAIC #1 (Marvel Comics)

Professional basketball player and world renowned celebrity, Morris Sackett, gains extraordinary abilities, at the grave cost of his own mortal body.

With his own body destroyed, the one-time superstar athlete must rely on others to survive. The saga of the newest Marvel Inhuman MOSAIC begins here!

REBORN #1 (Image Comics)

MARK MILLAR & GREG CAPULLO join forces to create the smash hit sci-fi / fantasy story of the year: REBORN. Where do you go when you die? Not heaven or hell; somewhere else. Somewhere you have to fight to survive. Somewhere the people from the past are waiting for you-the good and the bad.

Just read … Harley Quinn Suicide Squad April Fools’ Special

Jim Lee’s art is, as alwsys, great. The story was good, but the big thing is that THIS is the prelude for the post-Rebirth Suicide Squad starting in a few months, with what I think is a very interesting premise…

Just read … Batman Superman #30

Tom Taylor is becoming one if my favorite writers. This was the last issue of a self contained Batman/Superman in space story, and he hit all the right notes with both lead characters.

Just read … Doctor Strange #6

I have been a fan of Doctor Strange in comics for a long time, but thus new series keeps blowing me away. Magic is a tough thing to write without it solving the problems it causes, but Jason Aaron has a perfect grasp of the costs and benefits of magic. The art by Chris Bachalo is Perfect! Just friggin’ perfect!
