REVIEW: Red Dog #3 – 451 Media

What’s better than a robotic dog with a 6668 Quantum Processor brain and Nikocell S474
camera eyes … a networked pack of robotic dogs with 6668 Quantum Processor brains RedDog3_Back2 1and Nikocell S474 cameras eyes.  In Rob Cohen’s Red Dog, adapted by Andi Ewington, the wolfpack takes on a new meaning as this team of cyber hounds come together under young Kyle’s expert training.RedDog3_Hounds

This cinematic and entertaining western themed sci-fi read comprises all the good basics: an off-world mining colony on the dusky planet Kirawan; shared by its new human residents and primitive war-like indigenous bug-eyed alien population. Kyle, the only child on the planet, does his best to survive amongst the adult population, alongside his superior engineered robotic K-9 companions, and slightly dysfunctional family.

The plot is familiar, but the vivid visuals and fast-paced story telling keeps you hooked wanting for more.  After all. who can’t relate to the love of a young boy for his android dogs.

Here is the quote:


“Hang on Red … I’m coming for you …”

Recommendation: Buy

451 Media’s s6x #7 and #8

Running a few weeks behind, I finally managed to catch up with my stack, closing the book on the final two issues of s6x.  Written by George Pelecanos and Andi Ewington, with art by Ty Dazo and Mack Chater (and covers by Ben Oliver) this mini-series pushed McQuade’s team to its Zen ending of no ending.  Sacrifices were made, battles were won and lost, and secrets were revealed; but the war against the Cartel continues.

This is a fantastic action-packed read, especially if you are into the special operations military genre.  If you missed the print copies, check out their website for digital details; and perhaps, who knows, a TPB offering may be in the works for the future.  I’ll keep an eye out for you.

 

Here is the final quote:


“We live as One. We die as Six.”

Quotes #NCBD 2/3/2016 (@451official)

Picked up Bad Moon Rising #5.  It’s really a shame that this is only a six issue limited series. This one was filling that gaping show hole left over by the season finale of Sons of Anarchy.

Quotes #NCBD 1/13/2016 (@BoomStudios)

Two new books from Boom!Studios this past Wednesday: the murderous conclusion to Rowan’s Ruin and the second issue for Snow Blind.  Both were good reads. I was sad to see Rowan’s Ruin come to an end, but Ollie Masters got my attention as he dug deeper into the WitPro mystery.

Quotes #NCBD 12/23/2015 (@ImageComics)

Just wrapped up about three weeks worth of Image books, so again some overlap here with titles from the last two weeks.

This week I picked up Deadly Class #17, Invisible Repubic #8, Jupiter’s Circle #2, Nameless #6, Outcast #14, and Pretty Deadly #7. I also picked up over the past two weeks The Tithe #7, The Violent #1, Goddamned #2, Descender #8, Tokyo Ghost #4, and Monstress #2.

ViolentNo1Who knew Canada has a Brooklyn too. Too many of us Americans are ignorant of our northern neighbor. The Violent #1 gives us a sneak peek at the underworld up North in Vancouver.  Someday, when I get a chance I’ll take a trip to Strathcona to see what it’s all about.

Here are the quotes:


“… they just spread like hipster herpes and now I can barely afford to pay my own rent because Strathcona is ‘Vancouver’s Brooklyn.'”
