PREVIEW: 'Genius: Cartel' #4 by Adam Freeman, Marc Bernardin, Rosi Kampe, and Brad Simpson

After reducing Angel Guerrero’s drug operation to ashes—and surviving an attempt on her life by the very government that sent her to Mexico in the first place—Destiny is aiming her once-in-a-generation mind right at the Los Zetas cartel. But can she safeguard the fugitive women in her charge while fending off an army of enemy combatants hired to kill? Can she do what decades of American drug policy have failed to do: chop the head off the cartel snake?

Valiant Comics does a fantastic job of creating entry points for new readers. The latest relaunch is 'Ninja-K' by Christos Gage and Tomas Giorello and it's a supremely told story that's dense in mythos full of intrigue, conspiracy, and amazing ninja action.

The issue opens up with a crash course about MI6's Ninja Programme. It's fascinating in its own right not just to serve as backstory.

Dwayne Johnson Befriends a Gorilla and Battles Giant Monsters in RAMPAGE Trailer

In his quest to dominate movie theaters for years to come, Dwayne Johnson is probably one of the few superstars with the clout to get another video game adaptation greenlit in Hollywood. With Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle on the way this December, Johnson has got you covered for Spring of 2018 with 'Rampage' based on the 1986 arcade game.


Johnson reunites with San Andreas director Brad Peyton to make a different type of disaster film, one that involves a science experiment gone wrong. The video game featured three creatures that had been genetically altered causing them to grow into gigantic monsters. The point of each level was to destroy the city amid a barrage of firepower from military forces.

In similar fashion, the movie features the same animals - a gorilla, a wolf, and a crocodile - transformed into huge violent and destructive menaces. Johnson plays a primatologist who shares a bond with George, the intelligent silverback gorilla he helped raise from birth. Johnson i…

Justin Jordan and Donal DeLay Declare War on Love with DEATH OF LOVE Comic

Writer Justin Jordan (THE FAMILY TRADE, SPREAD) teams up with artist Donal DeLay (You are Not Alone, My Geek Family), colorist Omar Estévez (Heavy Metal Magazine, Batman ‘66), and letterer Rachel Deering (In the Dark, Vertigo Quarterly) for the least romantic Valentine’s comic ever: DEATH OF LOVE.


Love sucks. And Philo Harris is going to do something about it.

After a particularly bad, drunken decision, Philo gains the ability to see the Cupidae, the creatures responsible for all the love in the world, and declares war on love itself. With a chainsaw.

“Love is funny. Chainsaws are funny. Love AND chainsaws, therefore, is gonna be super funny,” said Jordan. “Basically, if you've ever wanted to see Cupid torn apart in increasingly hilarious ways, this is definitely the comic for you.”

“I just want everyone to laugh the same way they would watching Army Of Darkness or This Is The End,” added DeLay.
