80s meets Zombies with Alpha Girl!

alphagirl4-cover-web

It’s 1984, and Judith is your typical 17-year-old girl. She chain smokes, cuts class, sells her tamps to perverts, and she just might be the last sane woman on the planet. When a third-rate cosmetics company creates a pheromone that turns women into crazed man-eaters, the world image.comics.alpha_.girl_.three_dives into chaos. Judith must break her little brother out of juvie, all the while dodging rabid women and the men who hunt them. Already a proven survivor, she picks up some interesting strays along the way and kicks some serious zombie butt! Judith is ALPHA GIRL!!

I’m a zombie fan and to be honest… I’m feeling a bit burnt out on them. Today’s zombie comics just don’t give me that chill anymore. Instead, they make me bored and a tad irritated. Alpha Girl unfortunately did not give me that chill I was looking for. The art style is unique in its own way and I like that, but I couldn’t help but noticed how some things look like it was photoshopped into the comic. Was that suppose to be on purpose? Not sure but all I can say is that while I  it threw me off a bit.

The story started off good, but as I read further along it started to drag on. The humor was pretty cheesy, but I’m sure others will like it. The backstories of the main characters are interesting and makes me want to know more about them. So if you’re not tired of reading about the apocalyptic world then I suggest you pick up Alpha Girl.

Alpha Girl gets a 4 out of 5

+ Story has a fairly strong start to it

+ Original artwork (for the most part)

+ I did enjoy the backstories and made the main characters entertaining

– Humor could have been better

– Still missing that spark that puts it over the top

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice Comic-Con Trailer Is Here!

Batman v SupermanSan Diego Comic Con attendees and now the entire world has a chance to see the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight duke it out a bit in the brand new trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice!

Not only we see Ben Affleck (The Town, Gone Girl) as Batman and Henry Cavill (The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Immortals) in action but it’s the first time we see Jeremy Irons (Die Hard with a Vengeance, Eragon) as Alfred Pennyworth,  Gal Godot (Fast and the Furious series) as Wonder Woman, and Jesse Eisdenberg (The Social Network, American Ultra) as the infamous Lex Luthor.

Judging by the trailer, it seems that after the events of the Man of Steel movie, Superman is being looked at as both a hero and an “Alien Threat”, making Bruce Wayne turning into Batman to stop him.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016.

Berserk Returns, this Month!!!

Berserk-Guts-Manga

Berserk fans, wake up and get the crust out of your eyes, because Young Animal Magazine‘s current issue will be announcing officially that Kentarou Miura’s legendary manga series, Berserk will be coming off hiatus after nearly a year.

In order to successfully publish his mini-series, Gigantomakhia, Miura took a fell off from consistent chapter releases for a couple of months in the first quarter of 2014, then took a break from Berserk all together for 10 months. Now in July 2015, he’s back on the Berserk grind!  Young Animal will be releasing its next issue on July 24th, so be on the look out and get caught up if you aren’t….who am I kidding; you are.   Hopefully, Miura’s concluded the current Rickert arc before his break, so we may hit the ground running again with a new adventure for Guts and company!  BERSERK IS BACK AS A MONTHLY SERIES, EVERYONE!!

Dragon Ball Super Will See Manga Launch Next Month!

Dragon-Ball-Freeza-Super

Last month news came that Dragon Ball would finally see a return to the small screen with Dragon Ball Super! Fans were excited enough to hear the good news and now it gets even better with word coming in that the series will be receiving a manga adaptation as well.

The manga will officially debut in about a month so and will be headed by Toyotaro who’s famous for creating the Dragon Ball AF fan made manga as well as the Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ manga. With the manga coming out a month before the anime, this makes for a perfect promotional tool for the upcoming anime in July.

The anime itself will air on Fuji TV, Sunday mornings at 9 in Japan. No official date has been set. There is also no word yet on whether the series will see an English dub. Hopefully news will come soon on both of these fronts. When it does, you’ll be able to read it here.

Wayward! Have You Guys Heard?!

Wayward01_CoverB

Have you checked out Wayward yet? You should!


Rori Lane is trying to start a new life when she reunites with her mother in Japan, but ancient creatures lurking in the shadows of Tokyo sense something hidden deep within her. The creatures threaten everything she holds dear. Can Rori unlock the secrets of her power before it’s too late?

wayward

Jim Zub (Skullkickers, Samurai Jack), Steve Cummings (Legends of the Dark Knight, Deadshot), and John Rauch (Invincible) team up to create an all-new Image supernatural spectacle that combines the camaraderie and emotion of Buffy the Vampire Slayer with the action and mystery of Hellboy. The colors are bright and bold which works extremely well with the artwork and the story as a whole. The design of the characters is anime-esque and makes for a familiar look. The attention to detail in all departments cannot be understated and makes the book visually stunning.


Verdict: Jim Zub and Steve Cummings Wayward gets a strong start with a spunky young protagonist, incredibly meticulous artwork, and phenomenal coloring. This comic is so highly recommended that I don’t want to spoil it for you by telling you what goes on in this series. Do yourselves a favor and head to the nearest comic book store (or bookstore) and pick up a copy. Seriously, it’s worth it.

Wayward gets a 5 out of 5

+ Strong artwork

+ Rori is a great main character

+ A story that’s pretty hard to put down

Midnight Phoenix at T-Mode

Midnight_Phoenix_Banner_yt (1)

Midnight Phoenix, a visual kei/Jrock band, will be performing at Tmode coming up this April of 2015. Influenced by Jrock, visual kei, and Krock, everyone can agree that they have their own style. As of now, the band consist of lead singer Katana, with guitarists Shiyoji and Ginhane. Katana and Ginhane met each other in Japanese class in college and bonded with their love of watching anime, playing music together, and one day of going to Japan and making it big. Shiyoji on the other hand, didn’t come until much later when an ad was posted on Facebook and Craigslist.

Afterwords, the band really made some strides with finding a better studio to practice in and getting this great opportunity of performing at T-Mode. Before getting this magical shot, that they thought they would never get, they also performed at MAGFest to any lost souls that night that took the time to stop and listen to their music.

At T-Mode, Midnight Phoenix will be performing a song by One OK Rock and more to be announced at their live show. The band’s name; Midnight Phoenix, was described by Katana as “how Cinderella too changes at the stroke of midnight back to her former self, but also dies and is reborn like a phoenix.” Come checkout Katana’s wonderful voice and the melodic tunes created by Shiyoji and Ginhane at Tmode April 3-5 2015. Also, check them out on their Facebook page at Midnight Phoenix and YouTube at Midnight Phoenix Japan. I’ll see you there!

First Official Look At Ryan Reynolds As Deadpool

117349

Seems like there is more and more coming out for comic book movies and the studios behind them want to share almost every little thing with their fans. First it was Warner Bros and DC with a first look at Jessie Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor, and today it’s Fox and Marvel’s turn with Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool.

The self-proclaimed “Merc With a Mouth”lays out in this photo in true Deadpool fashion.

Still can’t believe the film is on its way (and in less than a year no less) because of so many setbacks. The more that comes out about the film, the more real it becomes and with such a fan following, it’s sure to bring in some good numbers. Let’s just hope the movie itself doesn’t disappoint.

Get your fill of Deadpool when it hits theaters on February 12, 2016.

DC Scheduled to Have A Big Announcement at WonderCon!

dee9ec2ac1fe879f76c29010f2b9fa2eWonderCon, much like ComicCon in San Diego and New York, is a main attraction for all things pop culture. People come from around the country to get a first look at what’s upcoming. Well, those of us who are lucky enough to be going this year will get a special treat from DC as they will be there with a big announcement.

No details have been given about what will be said, but it could be anything. Future plans for the DCU, another “unite the seven” unveiling, or even the much-anticipated trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Many are speculating that the trailer is set to debut there but as far as anyone knows, that’s just a big rumor (and even if it did, it won’t make it out of WonderCon unless it’s on a camera phone). No one knows a thing right now which makes it all the more interesting. With only a couple of weeks left before the convention starts (April 3-5), I can’t wait for what DC and all the other companies have to show as WonderCon is shaping up to be quite the event this year.
