Boom StudiosCthulhuReview

Because I hate typing Nyarlathotep… The mythos of Cthulhu has had a huge boost in popularity, due in part to the comic book series featuring the old one’s name on the cover.  Boom! Studios has cranked out horrific Cthulhu tales, side splitting comedy featuring three of the Lovecraftian gods, and tales that make readers want to read the issue again and again.  This week, Boom! kicks off another mini-series, Fall of Cthulhu Nemesis, and Major Spoilers is bringing you a first look.

My first thought when I heard H’wood had picked up The Strange Adventures of H.P. Lovecraft to be turned into a motion picture even before the first issue had hit the stands was, “They’re going to make a movie of this?”  Now, after finally getting my hands on the first is thought is, “They’re going to make a movie of this!”

BatmanDCReview

Wait, I’m still reading this? Don’t know how it got into my pull pile this week, but Batman Confidential once again slipped into my weekly bag of goodness, which means I buy it, I read it.  And in many cases, I review it on this site.  The most recent arc in Batman Confidential features The Joker causing all sorts of hijinks and giving no end of trouble to the police and to the Batman.  In this concluding chapter, we not only find out how Batman keeps the Joker at bay, but also the point of this Confidential arc.

Dark Horse ComicsKullReview

Don’t read this late at night…or a month after the last issue My biggest problem with Kull is that so much of his mythos has been wrapped into the Conan mythos that telling one from the other is often difficult.  This is especially true when it comes to the serpent cult, which has appeared in Conan comics from the 1970’s  and in the Conan animated series.  Strip off King Kull’s wardrobe, and feature him sneaking around the castle in his skivvies, and the line between the two – at least in this issue – is wiped away.

Things are not well in jolly ol’ England After the very excellent Crooked Man run, and the equally enjoyable In the Chapel of Moloch, it’s time to for a much larger and deep storyline that runs maybe as far back as the first issue in 1991.  One thing that is a given, with Mike Mignola back, readers are going to be in for one hell of a ride.

PreviewTop CowVampires

Top Cow has announced Impaler will get an ongoing series from the company.  The vampire thriller by William Harms with art by Matt Timson has had success with the first trade paperback, thus more vamp stories are on the way. “Vampires continue to resonate with people – just look at the success of properties like HBO’s True Blood and Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight books,” said Top Cow’s VP Marketing and Sales Mel Caylo in a prepared statement. “We recognized Impaler is truly a fresh, new spin on the ‘vampire mythos’ and were excited to keep the story going.
