Clone #3





Just three issues in and Clone has firmly established itself as one of Image's best. Obviously when it first came out on the outside it didn't seem to be anything special. Clones by now are what people would consider an overused thing. It would take some clever writing and an intriguing premise to convince readers otherwise. This series has done that. In just three issues we have a unique story, great characters, and you the reader are invested. Clone is a surprise hit, easily recommended. The latest issue further moves the story with some great writing and tense scenes, if it's one Image title you should be reading, it's this.

Spawn #226



Spawn has been a long lasting franchise that has endured its share of creative bumps in the road but the latest string of stories have taken this tale to a whole new level.  The creative team continues to succeed by offering concepts that may not be completely fresh but they find the right way to deliver them as they lead the audience down some fascinating roads.

4.5/5




GODZILLA #8




The GODZILLA Ongoing has reached its final act that has been hinted since the end of Kingdom of Monsters. Issue #6 was the high point of the series, finally Mothra's lovely Priestesses appeared and explained things. (Vaguely, but it was something.) They had warned that the monsters whom had risen up were not the end for humanity, rather it was the things approaching our planet. Then #7 came and it might have been the worst issue of the series. Not necessarily bad, but extremely underwhelming compared to the previous one. With this issue, I had high expectations, but not too high, since I've been letdown in the past with these comics. What I am happy to report is that #8 is by far the greatest issue in the series yet, the first issue I can call a really good read. Big things happen, with the humans, with the monsters, and...the invasion begins. Now this is the reason why we read Godzilla comics.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Secret of the Foot Clan #1



The mysteries surrounding the Ninjas that oppose our Heroes in a Half-Shell certainly warrant some attention in this stellar first outing.  If you've ever found yourself wondering where these enemies came from, here's your chance to find out.  From modern day questions to past conundrums the plot surrounding the Shredder's devoted followers continues to thicken with each passing page, as this creative team brilliantly structures a more than competent interpretation of their saga.

4.5/5




Non-Humans #2



Three months is a rather wide gap for any book. I had forgotten this series even existed. Non-Humans is a four issue mini-series from Image. According to the description, it's 'Blade Runner meets Toy Story.' Basically what would happen if toys sprang to life? Would they be counted as individuals too? It was an intriguing question the first issue asked the reader. This issue continues the story, we learn more about Aimes, and the main antagonist is established. If you're looking for something really different than what's currently out there on the stands, I encourage you to give Non-Humans a go.
