I recently glanced at my calendar and realized that things are about to get very busy for me. In addition to trying to pack up my house in preparation of my move back to Austin, I have International TableTop Day, C2E2, Free Comic Book Day, and then San Diego Comic Con. With nerd culture becoming more and more mainstream, these events are only going to continue to grow. While this isn't a bad thing, I am going to have to do a better job of passing on some amazing events or convincing my family that we should time our vacations around the upcoming convention schedule. #NerdProblems.
Mind MGMT #31 - The final arc is here. From the rise and fall of Henry Lyme, to the incredible character arc of Meru, the final battle is moments away. In an extremely touching issue, which features a recap of the difficult life Meru endured and a stunning redemption from Lyme, Kindt tones down the action and really gets to the core of this story. The relationship between Lyme and Meru is central and the scene in which Lyme seeks his redemption is absolutely stunning. It brings the reader back to the first arc and was refreshing to read given the violent battle that has been taking place for some time. Now I really want to go back and start this series from the beginning. Well done Mr. Kindt!
Chrononauts #1 - The big release of the week definitely lived up to the hype. Mark Millar and Sean Murphy team up to tell us the story of Dr. Quinn and Dr. Reilly, two scientists who have invented time travel suits. The time travel experiment began as a satellite that provide a video feed, in a hilarious scene broadcasting from the Civil War, but the action picks up when the duo attempt to jump back to observe Columbus discovering America in 1492. The crass humor of Millar and the gritty art of Murphy are a perfect combo in what is sure to be another hit for Image.
