Vanish #1 Review

Vanish #1 Review – Vanish #1 weaves a tale of magic, super-heroes and a decaying city. It’s dark urban fantasy where the heroes and villains aren’t who you think. The story’s main character is Oliver Harrison, also known as “The Chosen One”, who realizes his destiny in this first issue. Imagine a much darker version of Harry Potter who grows up to be The Punisher, and that will give you an inkling of the story that’s inside. Continue reading Vanish #1 Review

Love Everlasting #1 Review

Love Everlasting #1 Review – Tina Turner once sang “What’s Love Got to Do With It?”. With Love Everlasting #1, everything!
Yep, and like love, this book will try your patience. It’s a bizarre combination of “Groundhog Day” and every sappy romantic 1950’s film you’ve ever seen. And I’m not talking good sappy romantic films like “Roman Holiday” or “Born Yesterday”, I’m talking the really schmaltzy stuff that make you roll your eyes and fidget, praying for the film to mercifully end. But what’s the dark menace buried within this seemingly innocuous love story?
