Elephantmen Issue 51 Review

elephantmen-051-topper

An all new story-lime where anyone can pick up and read! This is a GREAT issue for first time readers. It dives into the Elephantmen universe and is an absolute delight.

Right from the start you are greeted with a nice mystery throwback. “Blood Red: Picking up the Pieces”, Part One, is a tale of “whodunit?” wrapped in a shroud of suspense! Detective Farrell is called to a murder scene where he is accompanied by his beautiful lover, Scarlett. Unbeknownst to him, he’s about to run into the one and only Information Agent Hip Flask!

“Sleeping Partners, Conclusion! Celestial Bodies”

Written By: Richard Starkings
Art By: Axel Medellin
Cover: Boo Cook

AMAZING! I absolutely LOVED this issue! The conclusion to ‘Sleeping Partners’ ended on a high note. But I want to go back to the beginning of this issue. The references…GOD I LOVED THE REFERENCES! I won’t give too much away with that, but I want to touch on one in particular. The Greek God/Goddess references were BRILLIANT. It is this type of brilliant writing that has continued to make this book a must read every month. Continue reading “Elephantmen #49 Review”

Elephantmen Issue 46 Review

Elephantmen #46…WOW! Bringing it back to biological warfare as only Mr. Starkings can with the FCN Virus (pick up Elephantmen Vol. 2: Fatal Diseases) making a comeback in the form of Harry Hazard! A new villain cooked up by utilizing earlier issues backstories (once again, check out Elephantmen Vol. 2). This was one of the trippiest stories I’ve read of Elephantmen yet, and I absolutely loved it. Continue reading “Elephantmen Issue 46 Review”

Roshawn Rochester, creator of Anatomy of War, shares his experiences at LBCC and its Artist Alley:

The Long Beach Comic and Horror Con was AMAZING! I had so much fun! From the friendly staff to the new faces and people we’ve met in Artist Alley, this was one of the coolest conventions I could’ve ever hoped to be a part of. It all started on a Friday for us. My wife and I left at 4 o’clock in the morning and we arrived in Long Beach a little after 10:30. From there we made our way to our hotel and then to the convention center.
