10 May

NavigatorPre-order Navigator on Amazon USA

From Academy Award-winner and Director John Bruno—the visual effects mastermind behind Avatar, Terminator 2, and original Poltergeist movie—comes his first graphic novel, Navigator! This idea is based on an original tale he made with Steve Burg and Ron Thornton.

The screenplay is by John Bruno and William Wisher (Terminator 2). Illustrating this epic space adventure is Jordi Armengol who, with his atmospheric work, helps bring the cosmos to life.

An alien navigator, captured in battle on Jupiter’s fourth moon, Europa, seeks sanctuary. In return, the alien will provide his advanced technology to help defend humankind from the alien force that enslaved him and has come to destroy us. In this backdrop is a story of love and reconciliation between a young Marine officer—placed in command of Earth’s forces—his estranged wife, and Amy, the daughter he’s never met.

Roye Okupe’s Windmaker is Simply Explosive

30 Apr

WindmakerDark Horse Comics
Available to purchase on Amazon USA

The art and story in Roye Okupe‘s Windmaker looks like it’s inspired by Avatar: The Last Airbender and I think the homage is intentional. Instead of a familiar tale, we have something different that draws from African lore. The Dragon Stones do more than represent the elements; they play a role in the broader universe that this author created. These jewels also grant the holder super abilities.

But some knowledge of this techno-fantasy is required: The Kingdom of Atala was invaded by the Olon Jin centuries ago, and these “false gods” weren’t helping the people at all. The citizens revolted, and these aliens were banished to an island instead of back to whence they came. Over the centuries, this country developed at a pace to perhaps even rival Wakanda from the MCU–but as for who rules this kingdom, that’s uncertain. There’s corruption in the government, and a hero needs to rise within the ranks to prevent another dictatorship from forming.

The British Paranormal Society Dark Horse Comics
Available in Comic Stores Near You

The British Paranormal Society is an all new comic book miniseries by Chris Roberson and Mike Mignola, and it has the makings of running like the real life Society of Paranormal Research! The introductions on how they work are very similar and we see the comparison nicely highlighted in the very first few pages.

In this debut, Simon Bruttenholm and Honora Grant are two founding members who’ve set out to investigate the strange goings on at Noxton, England. They aren’t out to find a ghostly haunting. Instead, Honora is looking into this town’s oddball traditions–perhaps on a similar trail as in The Wicker Man–and Simon is searching for his missing assistant. He was last known to have visited this town. But there’s mysterious standing stones nearby that has the man’s attention.

The Best Dark Horse Comics March Reads

31 Mar

Dark Horse LogoSpring is in the air, and the best way to read any book is outdoors. Not all readers are indoor types, and the best way to settle into the season, for me at least, is with a graphic novel and enjoying the sea breeze. Hopefully, there won’t be too many April showers ahead, but on a good day (at time of writing), I offer my selection of works recently released to enjoy the season with. They range from mythical fantasy to humour.
