Welcome back to another jampacked week of indie comic reviews from Unleash The Fanboy. I hope everyone survived the holidays well enough (although the occasional food-related injuries seem unavoidable), because this new year is stacked with fanboy oddities that you won't want to miss. As always, we'll help you wade through the mess of releases so you can save some of that hard earned cashola. Check out what we thought of this weeks indie books:

Michael Turner's Fathom (vol.4) #8
Judith Banyanski was a promising graduate student but after some unwanted experimentation while in captivity she's become something more, and the world may very well live to regret it. Combined with a sentient power derived from the genetic material of the Blue she's begun a quest of vengeance to purge this underwater facility as our heroine, Aspen Matthews, strives to gain bearings in these chaotic times.

The Manhattan Projects #8
I want to say The Manhattan Projects #8 delivered one of my favorite lines so far this year, but that doesn't mean much at this point. Still, I think it will remain a contender for quite a while. If issue 8 is any indication, 2013 is going to be another stellar year for the MP, and I' m personally hoping the book sticks with this new, more direct approach.

GODZILLA: Half Century War #4
It's been a long time hasn't it? The Half Century War is finally back with its very highly anticipated fourth issue. With just three installments it has firmly established itself as the fan favorite Godzilla comic. In the first issue we went back in time to see Godzilla first appear in 1954. With that out of the way, Issue #2 brought in Anguirus for a spectacular fight. Then in Issue #3, it was all out craziness as plenty of monsters appeared and destroyed pretty much everything. Now here, we have not one, not two, but three Godzillas. To the non-fan, that statement could be pretty confusing, but to longtime fans such as myself, it's pretty easy to decipher. Godzilla, SpaceGodzilla, and Mechagodzilla. A cool concept for sure, so how does this issue fare? Nothing short of exciting. For the full review, click here.
VAMPIRELLA STRIKES #1
Are you ready for a heart to heart with one of the good monsters? If so then this intriguing rendition is certainly for you as our vengeful vampire takes the time to survey her actions and talk about her feelings with a person she just saved. I realize that at face value that may seem rather odd but trust me the creative team makes it more than work in this first stellar issue.

The Darkness #109
The hardest thing about reviewing this series is the presence of expectations. Since this stellar creative team came on board they've done things with these characters that have continued to challenge both them and the world they inhabit while offering a superbly intricate yet engrossing romp.
