Roche Limit #1 (Sept 24, 2014)
Writer: Michael Moreci
Artist: Vic Malhotra
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.50
“OUR DESTINY IS THE STARS, AND I WILL LEAD US THERE.”
Twenty years after this promise, billionaire Langford Skaargard’s dream of cosmic exploration is no more. Roche Limit, a colony situated on the cusp of a mysterious energy anomaly, is a melting pot of crime and terrible secrets. When Bekkah Hudson goes missing, the search to find her will plunge her sister and a cadre of the colony’s underworld figures into an odyssey that reveals a grim future for mankind. Blending 2001: A Space Odyssey with Blade Runner, ROCHE LIMIT is the first part of a bold sci-fi/noir trilogy.

Rating: ★★★☆☆

MATTHEW
The Wicked + The Divine #4 (Sept 17, 2014)
Writer: Kieron Gillen
Artist: Jamie McKelvie
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.50
The mystery is solved. But does pop-god Lucifer like the answer? The answer is a word that rhymes with “Go”, “Blow” and “Pro”. If you think the answer rhymes with “Cow” I applaud you for your unconventional nature. It’s good to experiment. We’re experimenting with being Awesome for four issues in a row. JOIN US.

Rating: ★★★★☆

RODRIGO
Kid Code: Channel Zero (December 9, 2014)
Kid Code: Channel Zero is a rollicking, cosmic, time-traveling adventure, fusing classic hip-hop culture and outlandish sci-fi fantasy in this alternate universe to create the ultimate mash-up. 

Everything’s a remix! And Kid Code and his comrades must fight against The Power, who eons ago sampled the first sounds made from the God MC and created the Dark Mix (a version of the universe that was never intended).
Now there’s a race against and for time throughout the universe to assemble The Everlasting Cosmic Mixtape–nine tracks that can re-assemble the God Sample and help set things back on course.
The adventure starts here in Kid Code: Channel Zero.
It’s time for some action!

Rating: ★★★½☆

ZACH
Evil Empire #5 (Sept 24. 2014)
Writer: Max Bemis
Artist: Joe Eisma
Publisher: BOOM! Studios
Cover Price: $3.99
How does someone truly evil cope with the prevalence of evil in society? A serial killer finds himself losing the impetus to kill now that it’s no longer dangerous or taboo. Artist Joe Eisma (MORNING GLORIES) teams up with Max Bemis to explore this chilling tale for a special one-shot issue of EVIL EMPIRE.

Rating: ★★★★★

Major Spoilers Poll of the Week: Digital Avatars
Nathan Olson wrote in this week:

Now that we are in the 21st century. I think it would be neat to see who would win in a fight, Automan or Tron. They would be able to use all of their weapons, vehicles, and items on both the digital world and the real world. 3,2,1 fight.

Okay, then…

DISCUSSION: Gotham
GOTHAM is an origin story of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”), GOTHAM follows one cop’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering between good and evil, and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time.

      Don’t mistake me saying “I don’t know” with “Stephen likes to F with Matthew whenever he can…”

    Did you guys also notice that the “comedian” onstage at Mooney’s club was preceded by “Harlequin Dancers”? In Harley’s colors, no less?

    One thought, what if Gordon doesn’t fail, but cleans up Gotham too well? It’s said that the freaks takes over, but it used to be a mob-run town. So, what if the reason that they can take over because he cleaned out gangland?

    Power vacumn, power struggle, and the freaks rise.
