A blog about books and other things speculative

Wednesday Comics on Thursday - May 5, 2011

This was an extremely light week for comics after last week's end of month comic inundation. In new comics I picked up a couple based on books, both from Dynamite Entertainment.

L.A. Bank's Vampire Huntress, #4

Wednesday Comics on Thursday - May 5, 2011
There's an old saying that, "The Devil is always busy." Well this time the Dark Lord has outdone himself and has created a new entity that has the full Guardian team and both Neterus completely baffled. THAT is what's been going after the teams and infecting them. It has the essence of evil distilled down from his fallen Vampire Council, a little topspin from his exterminated favorite demon, The Thirteenth, with general regulation nastiness just for good measure. The problem the team has now is, how do they track something that can morph at will? Perhaps the bigger question is, once they find it, how the hell do they kill it? LA Banks brings the series to a shattering conclusion! Dynamite Entertainment

Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson: Moon Called, #6 of 8

Wednesday Comics on Thursday - May 5, 2011
Her attempt to unravel the conspiracy threatening the security of the wolf pack has led coyote changeling Mercy Thompson down many dark and mysterious roads.

But now Mercy's search for answers takes her to the most perilous place of all.

In the heart of a coven of vampires Mercy finds she is all that stands between her friends and destruction...and discovers the vampire queen believes the coyote shapeshifter is the greatest danger of all!

Compelling characters and an exciting blend of action and suspense have rocketed Patricia Brigg's Mercy Thompson novels to the top of the NY Times best-seller list. Our adaptation is guaranteed to thrill fans both old and new! Dynamite Entertainment

I mentioned some older H.P. Lovecraft comics a couple of weeks ago. I purchased the missing issues on eBay. Here are the scans of the covers:

I picked up my new comics late today so have not had time to read them. I'll share my favorite covers though, which are both by Brett Booth.

Both of these are from Dynamite Entertainment.

Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files: Fool Moon #1

Wednesday Comics on Thursday - April 7, 2011
Harry Dresden`s life is a mess. His top client (and close friend), Lt. Karrin Murphy no longer trusts him. Chicago`s underworld and the cops alike think he`s mobster Johnny Marcone`s supernatural enforcer. And the enigmatic White Council continues to view him with suspicion. If all that weren`t enough, a pack of werewolves have unleashed a wave of terror on the Windy City. But as is always the case when it comes to the creatures of the Nevernever, there`s far more going on than meets the eye. Before it`s all over, Harry will find himself caught between friends, enemies, and arcane forces bent on his destruction. Is it any wonder he can`t find a date?

Expanding on Book Two of Jim Butcher's NY Times bestselling saga, and featuring writer Mark Powers and artist Brett Booth, Fool Moon starts with a bang and doesn't let up! Dynamite Entertaiment 
L.A. Banks' Vampire Huntress: The Hidden Darkness #3
Wednesday Comics on Thursday - April 7, 2011
Book 3 - Bygones to Blood: From the looks of all things gruesome, it appears that the Neterus' and the Neteru Guardians' old nemeses are back. They can't be sure, as the murders of fellow Guardians have been weird and self-inflicted--but then again, Carlos and Damali have found something at the site of one of the more tragic death scenes that leads them to a new demonic lair. However, the question is, will this new discovery injure the newly pregnant Damali and the twins she is carrying?

Written by New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author LA Banks, The Vampire Huntress Legends: The Hidden Darkness is an original story that takes place after the epilogue in the 12th and final book in the Vampire Huntress series of novels and should not be missed by her fans or anyone who enjoys great paranormal fantasy!
