The Courier (What is Eve up to now)
So, if you are looking for a really good read containing a post apocalyptic world; a female lead (so far); and violence, zombies, biker gangs, fend for yourself and to hell with everyone else kind of comic: then, great news. Sink your teeth in and become immersed in a world with no forgiveness, a world exposed and harsh. Imagine, the world has met its inevitable demise and you are a child left to fend for yourself and your brother. Do you run and scrounge?, do you hide and hope "it all blows over"?.. Or do you seek out other survivors, perhaps ones that are strong. Maybe making yourself invaluable as an asset in order to find yourself a bit of peace. Join our main character in her quest to make herself invaluable to the world. Let's not for get the gangs and zombies. In a world with so many other problems Stopping in an unsecured area means almost certain death. Our lead has faced these creatures of hunger more than once. She has lived beyond the norm for those of her chosen profession. How long do you think you would, or better, could last in zombie country with a flat and limited ammunition? Life doesn't always go her way, but yet she seems to keep defying the odds. Every time I thought it was over for our indomitable Eve Harper, but always found myself quite happily proved wrong. Follow Eve on her adventures as THE COURIER.

The Mighty Thor..
The Mighty Thor
Not to long ago I read a few stories into The Mighty Thor series. If you are not familiar the time era covered is not too long after Jane Foster took up the Hammer. In the series she is precariously balancing her appointments for her treatments; her personal life; her life as Thor(female).. Of course it is not easy.Many have been thrown off because of her frailty from her disease, but soon she will have trouble keeping those seeking her(S.H.I.E.L.D.) off her trail. To make matters worse, her immortal duel with Loki continues to plague her. What can happen next???..

The Daughter of Hades Enters the World
So, there I am in the mall and here my name called.. That moment when you meet someone from times past.. When I first joined this venture I was skeptical. I joined, none the less, to help rekindle the world of imagination for ;future generations. I have only been on a short time, but I have begun to immerse myself. It had been man, many moons since the last time this little zen master creased his last page on my last comic book. In other words, I'm really old and it has been a while since I have read a comic other than the Sunday paper.
So, in my initial return to the comic world, I felt that the Marvel and DC universe were to say the least, a little lacking in creativity. Yes there have been some new characters here and there, but all in all nothing has captured my attention. So in my quest for a different feel than the characters of ole, my friend introduced me to ;the world of Zenescope. I don't know if you know (now you will.. know), but this series contains many story book characters we grew up with such as Snow White and the land of OZ, or Alice in Wonderland. The difference between the stories then and now is as you between your childhood and now. The stories have grown up and taken a more superhero/heroine or villainous turn. I myself picked up the story of Hell Child.. I was not disappointed.
Hell Child was for me a change from old mentality.. I picked it up on a whim at the behest of my friend. He recommended a couple of other titles, but indicated that this was good as well. I read the fir one, about her return to the world of the living. Her story is partial in other series, none the less this still included enough of a back story to give the character depth and history. I loved the origin story, of a lost love that may or may not be true love or even returned.. Was he really in love with her or wa she using her to gain power. Only time will tell. Her initial return brought uncertainty, and much violence. I of course loved her demeanor towards the unknown situation.. Not every persons initial reaction is to be frightened. Her last recollection before her death was that of the thought that her father had killed her through his treachery to her lover. Her awakening let loose all of that pain and anger. The short glimpses she gets into her memories is slowly bringing thoughts to a state of calm and order, but in the mean time, stay out of her path. It is easier to work with her than to be her enemy.
I have bought 1 - 5 and am enjoying every minute of them.. getting ready to re-read and find the next issues.. of course we carry those as well.. Well that's it for me right now.. I will ;see you on the other side of the back cover when I am finished what I am reading.. till then fingers clean books up and fill your world and imaginations........
