Earth is an ancient myth, long forgotten. Now, the word of the god-like Celestials is absolute, and they rule with brutal efficiency. When Joss, an Engineward, discovers and reactivates the head of an ancient ghoulem, she finds all is not as intended. Her destiny-and that of her world-lies somewhere far beyond the borders of her shantytown.

We’re still lacking new comics, still, but that won’t stop us from talking comics, and gives me a chance to catch up on my To Be Read pile. So here’s what I’ve read, recently, including things I’ve read for more fleshed out reviews on Outright Geekery and reading picks:
What is NTYCBD? Well, since New Comic Book Day is on hold until who knows when, the tag NTYCBD (New To You Comic Book Day) has been floating around online. And I figured that this was the perfect opportunity to catch up on some of the last issues I picked up in stores before working on my To Be Read pile.
If any of these sound interesting, contact your local shops and see if they have them in stock! If so, and if they’re offering it, use the mail or curbside pick up options, and help support shops during all of this. If your shop doesn’t have them, closed temporarily, etc: some of these publishers are offering their books through their websites.
So, let’s do some mini reviews of what I read, today.
So, things are getting a little wild out there. We’re being encouraged to practice social distancing, for the sake of individuals that are particularly susceptible to the virus. With this, many events, restaurants, businesses, etc are being postponed, temporarily closed, etc.

In the near future, space travel is ludicrously expensive and largely ignored. Enter Christine Ocampo, inventor of the Star Shot teleportation device with a big idea: She’ll travel to new worlds, engage-intimately-with local aliens, and film her exploits for a jaded earth populace trying to find something new on the internet. Now, Chris and her merry band of scientist-cum-pornstars explore the universe, each other, and the complexities of sex in MONEY SHOT!
A story about scientists having sex with aliens for the glory of mankind-and money.
“After losing her eye and the man she loves in a brutal mugging, Daisy McDonough is left trying to put the pieces of her life back together. Just when she begins to think she can heal- move on, she begins to see strange things through her new prosthetic eye. And The Red Mother sees her in return.“
I was super excited when I was contacted about being sent some books from It’s Alive! Press. I love checking out new things, and while I definitely have genre preferences, I’m often up for variety to an extent.
I’m doing mini reviews of each, ranking from what I enjoyed least to most. Though I’d like to state – none of these were bad comics! So if any look great to you, definitel check them out.
“Riverdale’s own bombshell bloodsucker is back! Following the events of the Jughead the Hunger vs. Vampironica crossover, Veronica returns to her own universe, still a vampire.
