Review: Baltimore, or, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire

Review: Baltimore, or, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire

April 21, 2017 Review 0

This gorgeous illustrated novel is one of the scarier things I have read. Nearly a collection of short stories, the tale is told by three strangers around the table of an inn. It’s a story about war, plague, human weakness and vampires.

These vampires are original and disgusting. The translation of the horrors of the Great War as literal monsters is very effective.

Review: Mythic, Volume 1 (Mythic #1-8), by Phil Hester, John McCrea

The best part of MYTHIC, VOLUME 1 was the prologue; the rest of the book didn’t quite keep up with the action and tone. Still, it had some bright moments where it twisted mythology and religion into new and surprising shapes.

In a world where scientists can refuse to die (and turn into ghosts because they don’t believe in anything enough to move on) and demons can possess peaceful rock creatures, it’s a good thing Mythic is there there to police things.

THE RISE OF AURORA WEST takes familiar superhero tropes and flips them to a new angle, like a Batman story told through Robin’s eyes. Though Aurora’s monster fighting skills are a credit to her training, she’s also the intellectually curious lens through which readers question her world. Where did this war against monsters begin? Where do they come from? And what really happened all those years ago on the night when Aurora’s mother died…
