Samurai Jack #1 (of 5) – Now you may remember this was a break out animation masterpiece for Cartoon Network back in the late 90’s, early 2000’s.  It was one of those shows that captivated audiences both young and old due to its style and story-telling, it was just a hell of a ride.  Anyway, except for a one-shot special done by DC well over a decade ago, ‘Jack’ has never had a comic presence, until now.  The savvy folks at IDW have picked up the license for 5 part mini-series which may finally answer Jack’s desire to return through time to his home…

 

 

 

Memory Collectors #1 (of 3) – From the cryptic creator known only as ‘menton3’ who does both the art and writing on this dark sounding mini-series, here is the actual blurb “Three jaded fetish models are unexpectedly thrown into a violent world and made to confront a horrible and unperceived truth: Hidden among us are entities that feed on the very thing we hold most sacred, our memories. No longer content with their lives as hunted cattle, they become the hunters.”  I could have done it no better justice than that!  So if you’re looking for something a bit different, this should fit the proverbial bill nicely.

 

 

Zombie War #1 (of 2) – And we can’t not have a zombie story can we?  Why this one? Well it’s by Turtles creator, Kevin Eastman and it’s a classic long before this generation’s Zombie love affair began.  IN fact, it’s about 20 years old and was a black and white masterpiece of its day.  But now it’s back, and its in flesh chomping, blood splurting colour!  For those of you who love, zombies or Kevin Eastman, or Heavy Meatal, or all three, this is for you J
