Indie Comics Spotlight: Butterfly, Roche Limit, Torsobear Volume One
The thing about spies is that you always have to watch your back. For as good as they are at hiding their identity and traversing the globe without raising alarm, they also manage to build up quite a list of enemies. That level of danger is something that appeals to the thrill-seeking personality trait shared by most spies; a trait that is typically passed down from parent to child. In Butterfly #1 from Archaia, being a spy is definitely rife with all the requisite dangers. The issue is written by Marguerite Bennett (story by Arash Amel), illustrated by Antonio Fuso, colored by Adam Guzowski and lettered by Steve Wands.

Tokyo Ghoul Review
Society is a complex beast. With millions of people comes millions of personalities and views, and it is inevitable that not everyone will get along. Aside from varying opinions and views, society also has people who base their opinions and views on foundations of ignorance and ethnocentrism. Such things lead to feelings of hatred and anger towards others as well as fear of what we don’t necessarily know or take the time to discover for ourselves. And this is where one of the big problems lies with society and lays a foundation for the latest from Studio Pierrot, Tokyo Ghoul.
Gearing Up For Star Wars Rebels
Every fall brings with it a new lineup of television programs, ranging in various genres and seeking to present something new to the table. There is one series this season that easily ranks at the top of my must-see list: Star Wars Rebels. Brought to you by the creators of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, an Emmy Award winning series, Rebels promises rich storytelling, diversity, and a tone and approach similar to Star Wars: A New Hope. Having attended the New York City press screening of the one-hour movie special, Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion, I can assure you that Rebels is everything you’re looking for and much more. The series not only captures the nostalgia of the old trilogy, but it successfully takes all of the essential elements of a Star Wars story and weaves a refreshingly clever tale of its own.
#TBT Anime: Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040 Review
When we were young, I think we all had visions of what the future would be like. Maybe it was from watching Star Wars, Star Trek, or Back to the Future, but it hasn’t quite panned out the way movies suggested it would. Whatever happened to the flying cars, teleporting to different places, and ships taking us to different planets? Instead, we have blankets with sleeves. So not how we envisioned. But that doesn’t stop creators from making shows and films about the future. Cue ADV Films and their title Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040, a retelling of the 1987 Bubblegum Crisis, which features a future where robots (Boomers) do much of the work for humans.
