Knives are sharpened and souls are searched as each man decides just how far he is willing to go in order to survive the brutal tundra. One thing is certain, though—one must die for the others to live.

Review

As our group of survivors venture deeper into the depths this nightmarish tundra, a game of cat and mouse ensues; the loser of this game will not only die, but they will provide sustenance to the other two players…

In my last review for this series, I mentioned that the true horrors of this story exist outside the walls of the Soviet gulag from which our survivors escaped; Rich Douek makes this very clear in Road of Bones #3, as his third chapter is the bloodiest and most brutal yet. Now that the inevitable has happened, I’m eager to see how Douek plans to up the ante in coming issues–clearly, the thing that’s been lurking in the shadows of this tale is going to want to come out and play, soon.

The combined creative efforts of Rich Douek and Alex Cormack continue to impress.

Bottom Line

This series continues to stun; Road of Bones #3 is a well-crafted bloodbath of an issue.

The Worst Dude is funny, irreverent, and profane as well as delightfully packed with swashbuckling adventure. Definitely worth a look.

Jupiter’s Legacy Is Not Watchmen and That’s Okay: Netflix Original Series Review

Jupiter’s Legacy hits incredibly hard while offering viewers a well-crafted blend of caped-crusading-escapism and social commentary; this combination makes for a grounded viewing experience that’s as exciting as it is though-provoking. Jupiter’s Legacy is a must-watch series.

Eve #1 Review

Eve is more than just a typical “save the planet” story. It is more about a little girl’s courage and a love that endures even in simulation. Armed with the fake bear and a dinghy, her adventure starts.
