Even with Tim Seeley still at the helm, eight years and a change in publisher almost guarantees major changes in a comic book series, and I’m glad to see that Tim is keeping things fun and hasn’t fallen victim to the monotony that can accompany comic series that rely too heavily on formulaic plotlines.

I’m not usually one to chastise comic book illustrators for the way they sexualize and objectify women. That said, I couldn’t in good conscience write a review of Grimm Fairy Tales: Myths & Legends #16 without mentioning two illustrations that I found problematic enough to warrant attention.
Myths & Legends #15 is the conclusion to the series’s four-part “Beauty and the Beast” story arc that began in issue #12 when readers were introduced to Jeff and Jenna. As always, I recommend Zenescope’s Myths & Legends series to anyone that enjoys the publisher’s other comic books or is looking for a different take on some of the stories we remember from childhood.
Based on Fatale #1, it looks like Image has another winner on its hands, and I’m sure the next few issues will be as good as the first, if not even better after being liberated from laying the groundwork for the series by this first issue.
I have an unnatural fascination with Hitler. And anything that involves femme fatales. It makes perfect sense, then, that I jumped on the opportunity to review Vescell #5, which is subtitled “Hitler’s a Bitch” and described on Image’s website as pitting the series’s protagonist against “evil Gestapo scientists, crooked cops, and Fraulein femme fatales.”
My favorite comic book writer, Tim Seeley, teamed up with artist Diego Bernard to produce Witchblade #151, and I spoke with him recently about his experience working on the issue.
This holiday season Grimm Fairy Tales puts a new spin on the Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol when the ever-creative Sela Mathers attempts to teach a future princess of Myst a valuable lesson about caring, sharing, and the consequences of failing to do either.
Hack/Slash #8 presents readers with the conclusion of Tim Seeley’s three-part “Fame Monster” story arc and the eighth issue of the ongoing comic book series since the title switched from Devil’s Due Publishing to Image Comics.
The third issue of the Victorian horror series The Strange Case of Mr. Hyde released last week and, thanks in large part to Twitter and to his extremely obliging personality, I had the opportunity to interview Mr. Cole Haddon, the mastermind behind this intriguing mash-up style comic book.
