She is not Eternity Comics’ sexy Lady Death or Vertigo Comics’ hipster Death, but she’s the cute little dead girl Lenore, created the wildly imaginative Roman Dirge. This is the latest Titan Comic’s trade release of issues #8-11 entitled Lenore: Pink Bellies.
I had a blast reading author Samit Basu’s critically-acclaimed 2012 Turbulence novel awhile back, and it got me hungry for his second serving, the sequel – Resistance. Eleven years have passed, since the flight of BA142 from London to Delhi gave passengers on the plane incredible powers. This was known as the First Wave, the age of the super power humans. It is now 2020 and the world has changed with many super human beings. This Second Wave, humans with no powers serve the ruling super power elites.
Dragons, like vampires, werewolves and zombies are all the rage in movies, TV shows, books, comics and video games these days. Besides the dragons in HBO’s Games of Thrones, Dreamworks animated How to Train Your Dragon (2010) is also very popular. I was pleasantly surprised how good the first one was and now I’m just excited for the sequel – How to Train Your Dragon 2 being released on June 13, 2014. Titan Comics will be releasing graphic novels of all-new adventures based on the How to Train Your Dragon franchise.
My geeky comic book advisers have been telling to read this indie sci-fi mystery comic book series The Absence. The Absence has been making the rounds in the UK and getting top-notch reviews, so when Titan Comics asked me if I wanted to check out The Absence by Martin Stiff, I just had to get in a review copy and see all what the fuss is about. Martin Stiff is both the author and artist of the The Absence and self-published the comic book from 2008 to 2013. The 6 issues are now collected in this hardbound trade by Titan Comics.
After 30 years, the wait is finally over, the French sci-fi graphic novel Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette has now been translated into English. Inspired by reading the graphic novel, Korean director Bong Joon-Ho turned it into the film Snowpiercer which stars Chris Evans, Jamie Bell and Ed Harris. Snowpiercer Vol. 1 – The Escape takes place in a post-apocalyptic Earth where the entire planet has been covered in ice and the only human survivors are left are on a train that runs forever.
Are you tired of the regular ho-hum superhero comics? How about something with big muscles, big guns, sexy babes, scary monsters and dark humor? Titan Comics’ Monster Massacre Vol 1. is a anthology collection of sci-fi/fantasy stories from the top writers and comic book artists in the industry.
Tank Girl returns in Everybody Loves Tank Girl graphic novel from Titan Books. It’s all new, but just not for EVERYONE. I mean if you don’t like sexy Tank Girl and friends, bad words, drugs, guns, humor and straight-out wackiness – then this graphic novel isn’t for you. Co-creator/author Alan C. Martin and artist Jim Mahfood takes us on a wild ride as Tank Girl gives us the inside look at The Tank; their adventures in babysitting their neighbors’ son Feldman; Tank Girl and friends trying to avoid the evil Arty Farty Gang, and many more crazy insane stories.
Jim Mahfood’s artwork is super-fun to look at with the various strips in black and white and colored. Plus in the back of the book, there is a collection of his Tank Girl galley artwork. One word – SEXY. And best of all is the out-there sense of humor. I mean if you don’t get it, you probably won’t get it Tank Girl, but for all us Tank Girl fans – we get it. I admit I was laughing hard at “The Sixteenth Annual Australian Swearing Competition short! No SPOILERS here – you will just have to BUY to graphic novel to read it and laugh your butt off.
