Title: Dead Vengeance #1 Publisher:Dark Horse Comics Written by: Bill Morrison Artwork by: Bill Morrison (Penciller), Keith Champagne (Inker) Rating: 4 out of 5
“Once dead, but now revived; Floating Corpse Come alive!”
That phrase starts an unbelievable chain of events! Johnny Dover has spent the last 10 years as a carnival side show as the Genuine Preserved Human Corpse. But now he’s alive, and trying to figure out who he is, and why he was there.
As he wanders, bits and pieces of his memory comes back to him; mainly the name of a friend that he contacts. Joe Preston, who has believed Johnny dead all these years (and would be right), meets him in near the docks and begins to tell him the story of Johnny Doe, the everyday man who was the greatest radio voice in the 1930… and brings all the memories flooding back.
Murder? Mystery? Carnivals? Of course this had to be read, and it did not disappoint. With the fantastic artwork and coloring, along with a gripping story line, this issue pulls you into the 1940′s and holds you there with all the grip of a Magnum PI or Colombo episode! With only 4 issues, we’re sure you’ll be on the edge of your seat until the last page!

Title: Lara Croft and the Frozen Omen #1 Publisher: Dark Horse Comics Written by: Corinna Bechko Artwork by: Randy Green (Penciller), Andy Owens (Inker), Michael Atiyeh (Colorist) Rating: 3 out of 5
The classic Lara is back! While working at the British Museum, a priceless artifact seems to have vanished into thin air. The search for the item leads her to Belize, a dazed and confused co-worker, and possibly… the devil? This isn’t like her usual fun cases; it appear she may be up against the supernatural.
Lots of things happening in the first issue; not sure yet how each story ties together. We open with Lara helping out a friend who’s a newly trained Falconry Expert, then to the missing item at the British Museum, then to being attacked in Belize. I know that in later issues it’s sure to tie together, but the first instinct is why even put the Falconry Expert? But then, all Lara Croft stories start with excitement and adventure.
The art is good; very detailed with corresponding, lifelike colors: nothing to flashy, just enough that it draws you into the comic. Lara is in her traditional outfit, well drawn and detailed, right to the thigh gun holsters. I guess I’m going to keep reading this storyline – just like all other things Lara Croft – I need to know how they all tie in together!

A reboot of the popular BBC animated series Danger Mouse has been in the works for quite some time now, but one thing may have fallen through the cracks: Count Duckula will be featured on the show as well! According to CBR, the Count will be featured in at least one episode, but there is no chance of a Bananaman cameo to round out the BBC trio of ‘toons. Probably for the best…
New episodes of Danger Mouse will debut on Netflix in Spring of next year. In the meantime, check out the new intro:

Marc Spector has been defending New York City for years as the masked vigilante known as Moon Knight. Or has he? Waking up in an insane asylum shakes that confidence. Turns out he’s been institutionalized since he was a child. But that can’t be true. Can it? Today, Marvel is pleased to announce MOON KNIGHT #1 – the brand new series coming next year from creators Jeff Lemire (Extraordinary X-Men, Sweet Tooth) and Greg Smallwood (Moon Knight)!
His mind is full of identities, and he no longer knows which is real. Now residing in a mental health facility, his thoughts are clouded and he has no idea what to believe. If he calls to Khonshu, he believes the ancient Egyptian lunar god will answer. Is this a sign he still clings to his sanity, or has it slipped from him completely? If Khonshu answers his prayers – what could he ask in return this time?
“To me Marc is a very ill man,” says series writer Jeff Lemire, in an interview with Marvel.com. “And being Moon Knight is either going to be a part of that illness, and ultimately destroy him, or it is going to be his path to salvation.”
Dive deep into Moon Knight’s psyche on a mad trip through Manhattan as Lemire and Smallwood bring you a super hero adventure unlike any you’ve read before! Prepare for an all-new MOON KNIGHT #1 – coming Spring 2016!
