Gotham City’s elusive serial killer, the Starlet, and her mysterious benefactor reach the pinnacle of their power, terrorizing the city and teasing the GCPD with strange clues and a famous new victim. Harley goes rogue and hunts down a shocking major lead in the case, but her ruthless style backfires and she puts herself at the mercy of Commissioner Montoya for a shot at redemption. When FBI Agent Hector Quimby becomes an ally in a crucial moment, he and Harley forge a partnership that will soon take them down a familiar and ominous road.
Klaus’s contact with the dead comes in handy when his former movie star friend needs help wowing a casting director. Beneath Hollywood, we catch up with Shivers, the vampire-chimp drug lord, in his vampire amusement park, where he continues his search for the Umbrella Brat who stole his stash, while Klaus’s aging paramour distracts him with booze . . . and relish.
When Klaus channels the ghost of a renowned actor at a Hollywood party, his retired paramour realizes he might be exactly what she needs to regain the limelight–and gives him a taste of real magic. Meanwhile, the vampire-chimp drug-lord takes a red-eye to Hollywood to search for the Umbrella-brat who stole his stash . . .
The Joker is dead, Bruce Wayne is behind bars…and Gotham City is just starting to redefine itself without Batman. As Harley Quinn struggles to adjust to her new life as the mother of Jack Napier’s twins, an elusive mastermind called the Producer seizes the moment to assemble a crew of villains-starting with the Starlet, a serial killer who murders Gotham’s golden age film stars in homage to their silver screen roles. When a recent, gruesome crime scene suggests a connection to The Joker, the GTO, and FBI agent Hector Quimby turn to Harley as the one person with information that could crack the case. With some help from Bruce, Harley agrees to investigate-but to protect her children and her city from a fatal final act, Harley must flirt with madness and confront her own past.

I think you guys know that I love Rocky Horror Picture Show, based on my post in August (or you can watch the video here), so when my alma mater announced the performance of Rocky Horror the first weekend in October, it immediately became priority on my schedule.
I was recently contacted to review Modern Mythology: The Hero’s Journey, a comic anthology retelling mythological stories, many reimagined in new, more modern ways. I was sent a digital copy for review, along with a press kit of images I can use for my review, and a link to their Kickstarter.
The creator and editor, Caleb Palmquist, really pulled together an amazing team of writers and artists to create something special with this book. Modern Mythology: The Hero’s Journey is a 160+ page softcover book with seventeen stories created by 29 talented individuals. In addition to all of this amazingness, there are also a collection of pin ups from other independent comic book artists.
