REVIEW: 'Space Bastards' #1 by Joe Aubrey, Eric Peterson, Darick Robertson, and Diego Rodriguez

  Acclaimed artist Darick Robertson (The Boys, HAPPY!) joins writers Eric Peterson and Joe Aubrey as they unleash the galaxy's most vicious and depraved...parcel couriers? Poor David S. Proton. A meek, unemployed accountant desperate for money, he joins the Intergalactic Postal Service, paired with Manny Corns, a.k.a. "The Manicorn," a sardonic brute who thrives on the competition provided by the IPS. But delivery is mercenary for these intergalactic dispatchers-payment goes solely to whoever fulfills the delivery, making every run a comically violent free-for-all between the most ruthless degenerates in the cosmos. Stand back, Lobo! Make way, Han Solo -- here come the Space Bastards!

REVIEW: 'Archangel 8' #1 by Michael Moreci, C.P. Smith, and Snakebite Cortez

In a world beyond the sight of mortals, Heaven and Hell wage war for the souls of mankind. Principal among God's legion are seven archangels written about in religious texts for millennia. But there is an eighth archangel, known only from passing allusions in Apocrypha, who operates under a different code. Fighting without God's sanction, he faces the enemy on his own terms, and shows just how bad good can be.


ARCHANGEL 8 #1

Writer: Michael Moreci
Artist: C. P. Smith, Snakebite Cortez
Publisher: AWA
Release Date: March 18, 2020
Cover Price: $3.99

Score: ★★★1/2 (3.5/5)

QUICK REVIEW: There really isn't anything Michael Moreci can't write. When he's not killing it in science fiction (Wasted Space) or horror (The Plot) or dystopia (The Mall), the much sought-after writer is writing his own take on a hired killer in the middle of a war between Heaven and Hell. A sort of supernatural Punisher if you will, that is every bit as gritty and violent as the mature rating suggests. Along with the dark and grisly art of C.P. Smith and Snakebite Cortez, 'Archangel 8' has a familiar violent set-up with a supernatural twist. It's definitely worth a read with the potential to be one intriguing and brutal series.
