Halt and Catch Fire “The 214s”
By Lex Lutz

For weeks, I’ve been wondering how all of these plotlines on Halt were going to come together. The show adopted a similar structure to AMC’s other hit show, Mad Men, from the start: set up our dominos carefully and then let them all. In this week’s episode, it all hit the fan.

Rating: [4.5 of 5]
Review by: Aaron J. Amendola

Video games have been toying with our emotions for decades now. Whether it was getting frustrated over untimely deaths in Super Mario Bros. or feeling remorse over who we decided to leave behind in Mass Effect, gaming has been finding new ways to pull on our heartstrings for quite some time.

Telltale Games is no stranger to the gamespace. They’ve been developing adventure titles for years now, and after 2012’s “The Walking Dead” was released to critical acclaim the pressure was on for the studio to deliver another top-notch choose-your-own-oh-god-did-I-make-the-right-decision game.

The Wolf Among Us is the best follow-up the studio could have asked for, and they’re only getting better at using our emotions as their little playthings.

Everything in the Gigahül awaits with baited breath for Sym, Whom they call The Ivory Wolf, to return. And she has returned – they can feel her presence – but not where she should have, and now she is making her way home, and will kill anything in her path. Literally.

The art in this issue is AMAZING, and is used to tell a majority of the story. The story in itself is a bit convoluted, and you really can’t get a clear picture of what’s happening, but as it is the first issue, I’m more than positive that everything will be explained soon. How did Sym come to be? Why is everyone waiting for her? Maybe we will find out in the next issue, but while we wait, be sure to pick this issue up and enjoy.

You can find this, and other Image Comics, at your local comic retailer.
