September Mourning has no past that she can remember, only a strange and shadowy present filled with the voices of the dead. Turned into a unique hybrid by the former Reaper of the lonely, injured, and abused, September Mourning is the only human/reaper to exist. Tasked with reaping the souls of the “worthless” by her mysterious tattoo, September hides and protects them until she can help them realize the last thing they had left undone in life.

Ivy Cottage and their Special Edition STAR WARS Tees at SVCC

Arturito - RetrendersFrom Clovis, California, Ivy Cottage is a small gift shop located in the Sierra Vista mall. I found their Star Wars MexiCool cultural fashion icon t-shirt series, ESTAR GUARS, pretty funny, which simply reflect some of the colloquial spoken Spanish language translations of Star Wars characters, if not made up for a little bit of Mexican pop humor. I have to admit, I’ve actually heard R2-D2 pronounced Arturito. Anyways, their ESTAR GUARS Special Edition T-shirts were a hit at SVCC.

If you’re in the neighborhood of Clovis, CA.,  and really want to get one of their ESTAR GUARS T-shirts, here’s their address: Sierra Vista Mall, 1050, 1007 Shaw Ave, Clovis, CA 93612

I can’t believe it’s been five years since we met Ethan Castillo at Big Wow Comicfest; the Retrenders crew has literally watched him evolve as a comic artist. I know I will probably say the same thing next year, but it has definitely been amazing to watch him idolize and focus on the art of drawing Spiderman to now catapulting himself into creating his own superhero characters.

Ramon Angel caught up with Ethan Castillo at Silicon Valley Comic Con 2017 to find out about his latest undertakings.

Film Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Written by Michael Diaz

It is really hard to believe that it has been over nine years since Marvel Studios premiered with the first Iron Man. When watching the brand new studio logo at the beginning of their fifteenth film, I knew I’m in for another awesome blockbuster. Just like the first, we have new set of awesome songs (no pun) and some good comedic dialog put well in serious situations. However, I was watching the film, I begin to question certain  moments throughout the film that perhaps didn’t seem right.
