STK612144 Image Well here we are.  Sorry for the lack of updates on here over the last month.  Rest assured, email updates of releases for June have been going out to those of you on my mailing list.   Unfortunately WordPress updates were proving too problematic and time consuming.  But all seems well again so into it.  There is a real sense of some great story lines and planned releases as the good ol’ U.S. of A. rocks towards their Summer –  a traditional period where all publishers are operating in high gear.

Are any of you watching the second season of Comic Book Men?  Apart from having plenty of light comedic banter of a truly geeky nature, many interesting comic story lines and history is referenced which I can’t help feel enthused by which each episode I watch.

Make sure you’re on my mail out list too if you want an electronic copy of the previews.  Ok, on with the remaining highlights for releases in June….


BREATH OF BONES: A TALE OF THE GOLEM #1 (DARK HORSE) – From the creator of 30 Days of Night, Steve Niles tells the tale of a Golem rampage killing Nazi soldiers to protect a Jewish settlement.  Now, I was until recently ignorant to the origins of the Golem legend.  I thought it was a generic monster of legend.  But watching a recent episode of Supernatural, this dealt with a Golem and it’s origin.  Fascinating stuff, this should be a good yarn.


DAREDEVIL: DARK NIGHTS #1 (OF 8) (MARVEL) – For those who enjoy some of modern masters, this series is drawn and written by Lee Weeks who has done some great Daredevil work in the past.




LAZARUS #1 (IMAGE) – From Greg Ruka who excels at dark gritty but engaging stories.  This is a near (buzz word alert) dystopian future.  The few rule the many.   Lazarus is a female protector of one of the families.  She dies and then the story begins which sounds like a decent opening to me.



I’ve already covered DC and IDW in my recent mail outs, so make sure you’re on my email list so you don’t miss anything.  I”ll get those posted up on here over the weekend all going well.
