Happy Bastille Day, Grand Geeks and Gatherers! Off with their heads and all that jazz! But really, I hope everyone is braving this heatwave just fine and still having fun enjoying your fandoms. As for me, I’m just trying to maintain an acceptable temperature in my personal space while preparing for a fun weekend of tabletop gaming. But before I engage in those preparations, let’s see what looks good this week!
Never Never #1 (of 5)
Writer(s): Marc McCann

Publisher: Heavy Metal Magazine – Virus
Synopsis: “Winter is seduced by the boy-sprite, Petros, off to the Never, Never. A place where children never grow up and adults are the enemy. What would such a place look like? Where resources are scarce. Time passes, but age is obsolete. War with adults, starved and insane from constant battle, is the norm. What would age-less boys free of civility and role-models be willing to do to survive. To live Forever…”
This seems like the very epitome of a Peter Pan story gone completely grim dark, if you ask me! It seems that youngsters such as Petros are spirited off to the Never, Never, a land of warring adults plagued by scarce resources. Whatever shall the lads do in such a forsaken land?!

Synopsis: “Out of the shadows and into the spotlight… the world’s greatest superspy has been exposed! Colin King is Ninjak and he has a target on his back like never before. With enemies lurking around every corner, how will Ninjak survive when there’s nowhere left to hide and the world is gunning for him? Hang onto your hats, folks! Jeff Parker and Javier Puildo are about to take you on a non-stop thrill ride.”
It seems that Colin King’s alter ego as Ninjak has finally been exposed to the world! And in true fashion like some John Wick movie, he now has practically the whole world gunning for him now! Who knows if he can survive this new normal?!
And there we have it for the week, folks! The identity of superspies being blown to the world at large combined with forever young souls tossed into the evil world of adults! These tales and so many more await you at the mere click of a button on your keyboards or at the touch of a screen on your phones and/or tablets. But hey, since you love supporting local businesses I’m sure you’ll head down to your comic shops this Wednesday to pick up the hard copy issues themselves. Read them and share with your friends. Start a conversation and be sure to leave a comment or two. But most importantly, remember…GGG!
