‘Transformers: Windblade #4’ – Advance Comic Book Review The first three issues of the hit IDW Transformers series, Windblade, set up a tale of political struggles, terrorist violence, and a struggle to survive. The final volume goes one step further and forces the young title character to deal with personal betrayal and a decision that affects all Transformers, not just the ones on Cybertron. The twists and turns are heart wrenching, but, ultimately, Windblade gets a chance to grow and mature, which leaves hope for her further adventures.
‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #1’ - Advance Comic Book Review Set shortly after “The Stolen Earth” and “Journey's End” during the David Tennant specials, this issue sees the Tenth Doctor visiting present-day New York City. While this is near the end of the Tenth Doctor's tenure, it still works as a starting point for those who are new to Doctor Who.
‘Dream Thief: Escape #2’ - Advance Comic Book Review This is the second issue of Dream Thief: Escape, and writer Jai Nitz and artist Greg Smallwood continue to add exciting and terrifying new levels to their Dream Thief mythology, here through a reveal that casts an ominous shadow over future possessions and makes John Lincoln’s past possessions all the more harrowing.  Nitz has always been able to tap into the emotions of his characters and the victims’ search for justice always resonates with John, and now John finds himself digging deep in the present to try and reconcile the past, from the murder of his girlfriend and sister’s best friend Clare, the first person he killed as a Dream Thief, because of her wrongful murder of Armando Cordero, to the death of Cordero.  That may sound a lot like plot, but Nitz does such a wonderful job of weaving the story and characters together that one never exists without the other, and the repercussions of one character’s actions may continue to ripple out into the present, creating unexpected problems or poignant situations that may assist or jeopardize John’s plans.  Dream Thief: Escape continues to build in emotional complexity, and if you aren’t reading this book, you are missing out on some stellar storytelling.
‘The Star Wars:’ Advance TPB Review At first glance, The Star Wars seems like little more than a novelty. It’s a comic book adaptation of the George Lucas’ first draft of a screenplay that would eventually evolve into Star Wars. You may have heard trivia bits about the original screenplay before, and how bizarrely different it was from the final movie. That being the case, the main reason to read the comic is to experience for yourself what this strange prototype is like and see it in some way visualized. And, if The Star Wars was nothing more than that—a novelty to be gawked at—there would be nothing wrong with that, and it would still be worth reading. But, it ends up being much more.
