Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Annual 2012 Cover by IDW

Back when I was in my prime age of about 8 years old, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were my jam.  I used to watch the television show, play with the action figures, and run around with a cardboard Christmas wrapping paper roll pretending it was a bo staff.  Today, about 50% of my nerdy shirts are TMNT related.  Heck, the drinking glasses in my apartment even have ninja turtle characters on them.  I recently decided to crack open a can of nostalgia by reading Teenage Mutant Ninja Annual 2012.

IDW Cover for Haunted Horror #1

Happy Halloween!  For those that survived the Frankenstorm/Hallowcaine, you might be looking to read a new comic to take your mind off of having to pick up all the branches in your yard.  If so, you should check out Haunted Horror, which immediately put me into the Halloween spirit.


I have to say, Godzilla: The Half-Century War has surprised me. I never expected a Godzilla comic series to have such a strong narrative with likable characters and an interesting story; the first two issues set this series up to be something great. However, with too much going at once and a massive, a mostly unexplained time-gap, The Half-Century War #3 leaves the reader wanting more.

I’ve really started to grow fond of More than Meets the Eye (MTMTE). When it first released I was much more in to its counterpart, Robots in Disguise (RiD). Lately, however, I feel as though MTMTE has been able to deliver a much stronger narrative with stories that I actually care about, as opposed to the constant and tedious power struggles that the characters in RiD face. After reading issue #9, I’m officially hooked. It’s not perfect, but the wonderful story telling mixed with the constant mysteries that are thrown at the reader are just too hard to resist.

IDW Cover of Rocketeer Cargo of Doom #2

The Rocketeer is one of those comic book super hero series that fully embraces our silly, childhood fantasies. It takes outdated concepts and turns them into some of the greatest adventures ever to hit comics. Cargo of Doom #1 re-introduced both fans and newcomers of the series to the world of The Rocketeer, and it was one of the best comic books I read last month. The second issue of this series is no different, and continues to deliver the action, mystery, and laughs that The Rocketeer is so well-known and loved know for.
