A Wicked Pissah of an Issue of Angel and Faith

Review by Shaun Daniels and Edited by Sharon Wong

Angel and Faith Issue 8

Written by Christos Gage, Art by Rebekah Isaacs, Colors by Dan Jackson, Letters by Richard Starkings & Comicraft‘s Jimmy Betancourt, Covers by Steve Morris & Rebekah Isaacs with Dan Jackson and Published by Dark Horse Comics. Retail Price $2.99

If you didn’t have daddy issues to begin with then by the conclusion of issue 8, you will.  Faith’s reunion with dear old dad is cut short when his true intentions become clear.  The book is filled with one bad decision after another, culminating into one extremely bad decision.  Faith attempts to fix her problems but being that this is the Buffyverse, things go from bad to Hellmouth very quickly.  Issue 8 ends on a moment that will have you yelling, “NOOOOO!!!!!” at your comic book.

Terry Moore Making Waves For Wednesday

Posted in Comic News on 03/27/2012 by shaundaniels78

Written by Shaun Daniels and Edited by Sharon Wong

This Wednesday, Terry Moore will be releasing the first collection of his new ongoing series Rachel Rising.  Titled Rachel Rising: The Shadow of Death, the book includes the series’ first six issues.  It follows the life/death (or something of a hybrid of the two) of Rachel as she plays a part in a larger story that dates back to the time of the witch trials.  Moore is trying his hand at horror and is having a good go of it so far.  If you haven’t caught on with the series, this is your chance to jump on board.  On Wednesday, pull a copy off the comic book shelf or if you don’t make it out to one then you are in luck as Rachel Rising is being released digitally through ComiXology, same day and date.  All six separate issues are also available with issue 1 a whopping $.99 and subsequent back issues at only $1.99 each.  The current issue is $3.99.

Posted in Box Office, Film on 03/26/2012 by sharonwong

The hungry joined the starving when audiences fought and survived #1 The Hunger Games with Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss and the tributes of the twelve Districts of Panem to dispatch the weekend box office at $152.535 million.  The first film of the dystopian trilogy (the sequel, Catching Fire, is set to be released November 2013) broke both personal and box office records; the sci-fi action/drama was the highest-opening and grossing movie for studio and distributor Lionsgate.  Director Gary Ross’ The Hunger Games premiered with the highest opening of 2012, more than double that of Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax‘s $70.217 million, and is the third biggest opening of all time behind Harry Potter and the Death Hallows Part 2 ($169.189 million) and The Dark Knight ($158.411 million).  Katniss, Peeta and Gale attracted 61% women and 39% men, and grossed $59.25 million in limited foreign release.
