Kodoja: Terror Mountain Showdown & Double Barrel
Kodoja: Terror Mountain Showdown #1– Kodoja is a fun giant monster conspiracy comic with art that feels like a unique mash up of Riley Rossmo and Mike Kunkel. Rory Smith’s style has a super sketchy and almost unfinished quality that makes it incredibly vibrant, and the choice to not color the comic was smart as it gives it a nice cinematic quality that’s enhanced by the sketchiness.

Age of Ultron, Mara, Batman and Robin, & Nowhere Men
Age of Ultron #1– Well that is certainly a shiny comic. It’s a good thing, because you are pretty much paying for the shiny and that’s about it. I’m fairly sure that between previews of this comic online and teasers and all that other crap that I have essentially read twelve or more pages already so that barely half of this book was new to me.

Beyond The Black Rainbow
I really would like to say that this is a good movie, but at best I feel I can only say it’s an interesting concept with some intriguing aesthetics. The Kubrick-esque sense of pacing and cinematography is enough to really lure you in and want to enjoy the story, but the fact that nothing really happens within the first thirty minutes can really put your patience to the test. I apparently don’t have that patience as I literally fell asleep twice.

Sacrifice, Uncanny X-Men, Colder, & Detective Comics
Sacrifice #4 & 5– Considering that I think issue three came out back in Feb 2012, it’s a miracle my goldfish memory even slightly recollected the events of the past few issues. These were still enjoyable, but man that long wait period is killer. This will be an exceptionally better read as a collection, and I am very curious as to how they plan to publish a trade.
