In which Holmes defends himself For months weâ€™ve been following the adventures of Sherlock Holmes.Â A locked room mystery, with Holmes as the primary suspect, brought readers into the series, but it is the answer that caused us all to stick around.Â The final issue arrives this week, and itâ€™s wrapped up in a neat package as only Sherlock Holmes could deliver.
The spaghetti western is solid cinematic genre that carries with it a particular set of defining elements. Named spaghetti westerns because they where shot primarily in the southern region of Spain, they had a many defining elements, not the least of which where stories that featured the Mexican Revolution or banditos. One of the most famous spaghetti westerns is Sergio Leone’s “Man with No Name” trilogy which stared Clint Eastwood. Dynamite Entertainment has undertaken the formidable task of continuing the adventures of the man with no name. Do Chuck Dixon and his posse pull off the job, or did their
Although Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum are some of the most famous characters in Lewis Carrollâ€™sÂ â€œThrough the Looking Glassâ€ (they never actually appeared in the original â€œAlice in Wonderlandâ€ and debuted in the books sequel), they have yet to play an essential role in Zenescopeâ€™s adaptation. They made a brief appearance way back in issue #2 of Return to Wonderland when Calie stumbled upon their bloody bodies (along with the Walrus) at the Fish Dinnerâ€™s restaurant. They were apparently murdered by the Carpenter but we never discovered the reasons why or the identity of the two men until now.

Since Grant Morrisonâ€™s R.I.P., the Joker has been pretty scarce, and some have speculated where the Clown Prince of Crime might have wandered off to.Â Dead? The new Red Hood? Hunting bats in the far past?Â Nope. Turns out heâ€™s been right there waiting to make a dramatic entrance.
Or – “Oh, Good.Â Achilles Is Back…Â Sigh…” The ‘Rise Of The Olympian’ storyline has been the focal point of Wonder Woman for seemingly fifty-seven years now, and while the last couple of issues have given me pause to remember what I really like about Wonder Woman under Gail Simone, I’m not thrilled to see the Olympian once again taking center stage.Â So, how does the issue pan out?

Or – “Time, Time, Time…Â See What’s Become Of Me…” When Pete Quill’s ragtag group of cosmic-types took on the name Guardians of the Galaxy, there was already a team in the Marvel Universe by that name…Â Or at least there will have been one, in the 31st Century.Â The original GotG were a group of oppressed Freedom Fighters under the rule of the Badoon, a race of what seemed to be barbarian space-lizards.Â Since they won’t be around for about another thousand years, give or take, who exactly do you suppose the people in that picture are?

Mickey Mouse is one of those timeless characters that everyone knows. From his first appearance in the Steamboat Willie short back in 1928, he has proven time and time again that he’s a hard mouse to keep down. While his contemporaries may have faded like the ink they where drawn in, Mickey Mouse has gained more popularity year after year. He is one of the few characters that can connect through almost any culture, and now he has come to Boom Studios. I got the chance to read Mickey Mouse and Friends #296, the first issue from Boom Kids division
When Entertainment Weekly named John McClane as one of the Coolest Heroes in Pop Culture, they probably never took into account that the hero who gets the job done when no one else will started out as a New York beat cop in the 1970s.Â Sure beating the crap out of international terrorists seems pretty glamorous, but what was McClaneâ€™s life like before that fateful flight to L.A.?
