Review: Hellboy in Hell Vol. 2 Death Card

If you are like me then you absolutely love Hellboy. To be honest I don't think I have ever read a bad Hellboy book or even one that I did not enjoy. Of course one of the good things about Mignola's Hellboy is his stylistic drawing style that emphasizes heavy lines of shadow.

But enough of why Hellboy is so good. I read Hellboy in Hell Vol. 1 and of course I enjoyed that one too. So when I got the opportunity to read and review the follow-up, and finale for this series I jumped at the chance. This continues on with Hellboy's adventure through Hell. It features short stories about different people who have gone to Hell for some reason or another. Now I do not know if these are based on actual people, but there was a section of the book where it talked about them as if they were real people. The title is Death Card due to one short story being based on a gambler who could never lose. I really enjoyed reading this, and I rated it 4 out of 5 stars on Goodreads. This releases on Oct. 18, 2016. Below I have included a link so you can pre-order a copy now.

Review: The Fade Out Vol. 2

I just finished this trade last night. If you are not familiar with this series it is a murder mystery that takes place in Hollywood's hey day. So it has that classic feel.
I will admit that the beginning of this was not very fun to read it seemed disjointed and was all over the place...jumping between different events. But it does pick up around the mid point of the book, and resumes where I think it should have to continue the mystery.

I will say that this is definitely not for kids, as the sex scenes get pretty hot and heavy...it is Image after all and they push the limits when it comes to sex. Of course it ended on a cliff hanger... I decided to rate this 4 out of 5 stars on Goodreads. Below I have included a link to buy your own copy.

The Last Week in Review? 8/19/16


I have decided that due to short viewer attention I am going to greatly reduce the books I review, and some weeks I may not upload at all. It's based on what is being viewed and I cannot justify uploading long vids if no one is watching and responding. If you want to see this series to continue on then you can comment and say so -

Some Games I Really Want to Play For PS4

I don't usually get excited about new games for the PS4, but when I saw that these were out I just knew that I wanted to play them badly.

First up is Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness. This is an RPG(role-playing game). I played Star Ocean 2 on the PS2 many years ago. I was very impressed with this series at the time because it had a system where you could farm materials and then combine them with recipes, enchants, and upgrades, etc. I hope that this new game retains some of the appeal that the older one had.





Next up is Injustice 2. Which is a sequel of course of the DC Comics themed fighting game of the same name.  This series has been produced by the makers of the Mortal Kombat franchise. The look, play and feel is very much like the Mortal Kombat games. If you know the combos and moves in those games you can easily pick them up in the Injustice games. Being a comics fan I am very excited to play this and it releases Dec. 31, 2017.



Another game I am excited about and one that my friend told me about is No Man's Sky. This is an open universe space exploration game within a very large universe in which you can explore. The player can be the first to explore regions of space and discover new life forms. I have heard someone say that it is Minecraft in space, and I really hope it is not exactly like that as I am not a fan of that series.




Last but not least is Spiderman. I played a similar looking game on the PS2 called Ultimate Spiderman, but this new one looks like a major improvement on the gameplay. Imagine playing as Spiderman.....being a comics fanboy this will be a great game to check out! It releases Dec. 29, 2017.

Outcast Vol. 2 Review

So I just finished this trade last night. I had a digital copy of this so that is why I decided to feature it here instead of on my Youtube channel. I have to say that I found this volume to be much better than the first volume. This volume reveals a little more of the mystery just enough to keep you wanting more. We learn the theory behind why some people seem to be fine after an exorcism and why some seem to go into a comatose state. Just what does it mean to be an "Outcast"? I will admit I was kinda angry that it ended rather abruptly on a cliff hanger, and I wonder(as I have yet to see the Cinemax show) if the TV series is a literal translation. I am still kinda creeped out by the man in the business suit who threatens the reverend and I have an idea of who he is, but I can wait to see if it is revealed further in the series. I rated this volume 4 out of 5 stars on Goodreads, and I am excited to keep reading this series.



Here are the first 2 volumes of this series.
Here is the pilot!

Book I Want to Read Badly! New Release

I have been a huge fan of the Dune Series since I first got hooked on the SyFy Original Series debut. This film adaptation of the first book in the series made me want to read this series. I read each and every book from Frank Herbert's series and even kept up by reading the series prequels by his son, Brian Herbert. I do have to say that these are just as good as his father's books, and even if they are not from his father's notes I would still enjoy them because I trust that he knew his father well enough to know the direction he had intended for this series.
So the reason for this post is that there is a new book in the series that comes out September 13,2016. As I have read every book I am highly anticipating this latest release...it's about the Navigators, which are kind of elusive and mysterious in their own right. If you too are a fan of this great scifi series I hope that you will pick this up when it releases. I know that I will get my own copy somehow and review it.




Pre-order your copy here!

Orphan Black Comics(Media Tie Ins)

I'm assuming you have discovered this post because you are a fan of the Orphan Black TV series. Most fans of the BBC America show are unaware of the media tie in comic book series. I too did not know about these comics until I got the chance to read and review Orphan Black: Helsinki from Netgalley. This volume helped to flesh out the characters that were recently introduced in this past season of the show.  I enjoyed learning about Mika, and her involvement in discovering the clone conspiracy.
These comics help to fill in some of the gaps in the TV show. It's not required reading but if you want to learn more about the characters I would suggest reading these books. Below I have included links to where they can be purchased.




I hope you enjoy these as much as I have, and thank you for reading this brief post. Please feel free to subscribe to see more geeky posts.
