What are you reading? Books/Comics/Magazines
I'm more of a comic reader myself. So far this month's reads are:
The Walking Dead Issue 154: Led To Slaughter
ABOUT: Negan is loose. Michonne and Aaron follow his trail towards the whisperers' border. They don't know that Brandon helped Negan escape. But Brandon doesn't know that his plan is for the Whisperers and Alexandria to kill each other differs from Negan's... until Negan stabs him in the heart.
QUICK REVIEW: (I won't spoil) 9/10 - Very, very good issue. Really had fun reading this issue, as well as being shocked + Happy for characters. Eagerly awaiting next months issue as always.
The Punisher (2016) Issue 1
ABOUT: FRANK CASTLE LOSES CONTROL! A by-the-numbers drug bust is about to take Frank Castle by surprise…and he HATES surprises. The horrible fallout threatens to send The Punisher into the heart of darkness, but Castle won’t make that journey alone: A DEA agent is on his trail and attempting to get into his head…but what horrors will she find there, and will she survive the experience? First-time Punisher writer Becky Cloonan and quintessential Punisher artist Steve Dillon are forcing Frank Castle out of his comfort zone and taking him to the edge of the world he thought he knew!
QUICK REVIEW: Good first issue, Mainly was building up the story and introducing a few characters. Punisher shows up, goes berserk and kills whole lot of people before the DEA get to the location themselves and steals the files he wants - For unknown reasons as of yet.
HYPERION Issue 1
ABOUT: HYPERION IS BACK! Or is he? The high-powered hero is hiding in plain sight, driving a truck across the U.S. to learn about the country he has adopted. Along the way, he picks up a lone runaway named Doll, who has more baggage than he anticipated. Doll is in danger, chased by a pack of freaks and lunatics known as THE CARNIES. Will Hyperion reveal himself to save her? Maybe! Will he use a tractor trailer as a baseball bat? Probably!
QUICK REVIEW: This was a stand out buy. While picking up both TWD & The Punisher on Saturday. I loved the look of the cover. The name also stood out, HYPERION! Being known name to me from the Borderlands Series. I really enjoyed this, it didn't disappoint. Gripped me from the start. So far his abilitys remind me much of Superman but a hillbilly version! haha. Laser beam eyes, Super Strength, Flying. That's all that was seen this issue. Started with a character called Dolly, trying to find Hyperion to help save her. But he's staying hidden as a truck driver called Marcus 'Marc' Milton.
