Dark Horse Comics - New Release Reviews For September 26, 2012 - Page 2
Score: 5.5 out of 10
B.P.R.D. Hell On Earth : The Return Of The Master - Issue 2
Creator Mike Mignola is finally ditching the little mini-series and is going with a sequential numbering system, starting with next month's hundredth issue. This issue would have been a better place to start as it is more bridge in design, and less closure creating. The art is solid, as is the cover.
Score: 8 out of 10
The Goon - Issue 42
The cover is staggering, off-the-charts amazing. It was produced by the company that created the animated version of The Goon. The inside is just as good. It is a strange set-up for the coming conflict and it's spiked with crazy humor. Even the back-up story is a hoot. And it has the most unfortunate wardrobe malfunction. Just an excellent comic book.
Score: 9 out of 10
Mind MGMT - Issue 5
This is, arguably, one of the best comic books on the stands. It's a moving and gripping tale that delves into a character's life. The issue totally immerses the reader in a character's history and a major detail is revealed. It's a tragic tale about perception and choice.
There is nothing casual about this series as it demands the reader's attention. The back up stories are fantastic, as well. And the art is lovely with water colors.
Score: 9.5 out of 10
Star Wars Darth Maul : Death Sentence - Issue 3 (of 5)
Darth Maul is, without a doubt, the worst motivational leader. Ever. This is not a feel good story. A lot of death and destruction is on the way and he seems happy because of this. The Jedis are the weakest part of the story. The cover is alright, as is the interior art.
Score: 5 out of 10
It may not have been the best week for literary censorship, but it was a pretty good week from Dark Horse Comics. Mind MGMT and The Goon are highly deserving of your money and time. Avatar wasn't far behind them. Stop back next week for more New Release Reviews of Dark Horse Comics.
