William Shakespeare’s Star Wars Saga


I’m a sucker for pretty much anything Star Wars and I have a fondness for William Shakespeare. However, never in my wildest dreams did I think someone would combine the two! Ian Doesher has and the result is pretty humorous. I’m not sure if these will last past an initial read-through, but I’m happy they exist and have added them to this years Christmas List.

Young John McClane explored in Die Hard: Year One Comic


BOOM! Studios (the studio behind the Blade Runner Comic) is releasing a prequel to the Die Hard trilogy in comic book form called Die Hard: Year One.

Every great action hero got started somewhere: Batman Began. Bond had his Casino Royale. And for John McClane, more than a decade before the first DIE HARD movie, he’s just another rookie cop, an East Coast guy working on earning his badge in New York City during 1976’s Bicentennial celebration. Too bad for John McClane, nothing’s ever that easy.

I’m not sure what I think about this.  In comic book form, prequels and spinoffs are easier to digest.  Hopefully no movie is put in the works.  The last thing we need is another Die Hard movie.  The originals will do just fine.

Manga Review: Priest Vol. 1


Priest, Vol. 1: A Prelude to the Deceased

Publisher: TokyoPop
Author: Min-Woo Hyung

Rating: ★★★½☆ 


In the frontier of the American west, a veil of evil threatens to engulf humanity. Servants of the fallen archangel Temozarela are paving the way for their dark lord’s resurrection.

One man stands in the way of the apocalypse—Ivan Isaacs—a fallen priest who sold his soul to the devil Belial for the power to fight evil. Armed with a wicked blade and silver bullets, Ivan will give the heretics a baptism of blood in his pilgrimage for humanity’s redemption.


I’ll admit it, this is my first venture into Manga.  I’ve read the complete Akira manga series but never got into any more Manga.  The most experience I have with this medium is through the Anime versions of some of these stories.  I’m a huge fan of Anime, but for some reason never picked up a Manga to check out.  Well, it’s official, Min-Woo Hyung‘s Priest has me hooked.
