Wednesday Comics on Thursday - October 21, 2010

I picked up a lot of wonderful comics yesterday. Here are my favorites:

IDW Publishing:

True Blood, #4 of 6

This issue tells the story of Sam’s attack on the evil spirit that proves deadly for the local population, and it ends with him having to recount his most shameful memory... a secret powerful enough to re-energize the wounded spirit. Outside, Andy and the Sheriff have discovered the dome keeping them all trapped inside Merlotte’s, but will they be able to break in before Jason recounts the dirty details his first time? The stormy night in Bon Temps continues, in this original idea by TRUE BLOOD creator Alan Ball. IDW Publishing

The Last Unicorn, #5 of 6

The Lady Amalthea is more than she appears when she arrives on the doorstep of King Haggard’s castle with Molly Grue and Schmendrick the magician in tow. What lies behind those haunted, ancient eyes? Will she forget what she truly is and what she came to find? But maybe most important, will she be able to face the most terrible foe yet: human love? IDW Publishing

Vincent Price Presents 21

This one shot featuring Vincent Price tells another gothic adventure! Assignments on frontier planets always irritated intergalactic mob hitman Randall Stiles and his partner Jake Mackey and this mission would soon prove why. What starts out as a seemingly routine pick-up turns quite deadly in this Sci-Fi tale from Vincent Price who takes the reader on an unexpected ride to the outer edge of the known Universe.Bluewater on eBay

Vincent Price Presents 22:

This one shot featuring Vincent Price tells another gothic adventure! The great Roman Philosopher and Statesman Marcus Tullius Cicero once wrote: “I remember the very things I do not wish to; I cannot forget the Things I wish to forget.” This brand new tale of science taken to the extremes might make Cicero change his mind as Vincent Price invite us to consider how accountable we are for how well we remember our own past?

The actual comics have different printing on them. These are the previews from the Marvel site. This month Marvel is publishing Vampire Variants for everything it seems. As much as I'd love to have them all, it's not going to happen.

Fevre Dream, #6

Wednesday Comics on Thursday - Septemeber 16, 2010
Cover: Felipe Massafera

Writer: George R.R. Martin
Pencils: Rafa Lopez
Inks: Ruben

... From the New York Times Best-selling author, George R. R. Martin, comes a tale of vampire clans, death and debauchery, legendary blood masters, and even a few epic steamboat races on the muddy Mississippi. This is Martin's FEVRE DREAM, an antebellum story of power, loss, and the fever of bloodlust. York and Marsh have finally, truly come to an understanding. What began as a business partnership shrouded in carefully constructed lies has now been flung into the burning light of the truth, the whole truth, and the two men now stand together as brothers-in-arms against a common enemy and towards a common goal -- the salvation of the human race. But are one man and one vampire strong enough to stand against the evil of Damon Julian? When the dark bloodmaster sets foot on the Fevre Dream, a bloody fight is about to begin...
