Hello Gatherers and Grand Geeks! Hopefully all is well with you and that you are all safe in your neck of the woods. As for me, well, its just getting warmer and warmer so I’m finding myself frequenting the pool area more while enjoying a good indie book in my hands. Now, of course I can suggest a similar arrangement but still, you’ll need some reading material to supplement that. So let’s see what looks good this week!
Buffy: Every Generation #1
Cover Artist(s): Various
Publisher: Boom! Studios
Synopsis: “The SECRET ORIGINS of some of the most important Slayers in history…and the First Appearance of a new character with a familiar face who will change the way you look at Buffy and everything about her world. ? This is the Buffy comic that everyone will be talking about and the most important new character in over twenty years!”
I’ve yet to find someone who’s not a fan of the world centered around Buffy the Vampire Slayer! But have you ever wondered just what the history behind such slayers consisted of? Look no further than this new series as the secret origin of some of mankind’s most famous slayers is uncovered. Now this is a wonderful selection for those that love a bit of history to their overall comics narrative but also a must for any Buffy fan. But at the same time, I’m intrigued by just who this “familiar face” is that will be making their first appearance!
The Boys: Dear Becky #1
Artist(s): Russell Braun
Cover Artist(s): Darick Robertson
Publisher: Dynamite Entertainment
Synopsis: “Twelve years after the events of The Boys, Hughie finds himself back home in Scotland where he intends to finally marry Annie in the company of friends and family. But the sudden appearance of a peculiar document sends our hero into a tailspin and threatens to bring the events of his nightmarish past crashing down on him in the worst possible way. There was one story about The Boys that Hughie never knew. Now, whether he likes it or not, he’s going to.”
With this series we find a new chapter opens into our known tales of The Boys. Hughie is ready to marry the girl of his dreams and settle down until some strange and mysterious document appears out of nowhere to change things up. Apparently its going to bring old demons from the past to light but at the same time bring new ones never known before. Seems Hughie just can’t escape the past, especially over events he never knew.
And June is off to a great start, folks! Secret origins of vampire slayers combined with unknown demons arising from one’s past. These stories and so many others are available at the mere click of a button on your keyboards or at the touch of a screen on your tablets or phones. Enjoy these tales and so many more. Share them with your friends and be sure to leave a comment or two. But most importantly, remember…GGG!
