Comic Book Consideration: DarkHorse's Ghost # 4






         The American Comic Book industry had had for many years a major indie influence and among them is this week's DarkHorse issue. Chosen at random from their catalog is Ghost. Having not read much Darkhorse this character appears to be a person that was killed and is a spirit living between the dead and life as they interact with people in this issue. Ghost unlike other similar characters in the industry is a women and so this issue deals with things a bit differently. As always their is plot information so read at your own risk.

Comic Book Consideration: IDW's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles # 35





         Hello and Welcome to Comic Book Consideration. This week I have picked an IDW comic to review and be considered and have randomly picked Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 35 from a hat. Moving to the back story of this Issue i must say I don't know a whole lot about the turtles outside of the 1990's movies and late 1980's early 19990's cartoon. This series by IDW seems to be a reboot of the team and the history of events that happened to them.

First issue Bust?: New Warriors #1






        New Warriors is an interesting choice for marvel to bring back as a new monthly series. The name is somewhat tainted and no a respected one due to past history. In the past the New Warriors of old blew up a town killing a lot of people which helped to lead to the Marvel Civil War and its problems until the Heroic age.

There are a lot of ways out here for a Nova to DIE. In the ship(last issue) now holding a nova helmet he says. Let's see how YOU went... A recording says. I'm not AFRAID of you--
