Quotes #NCBD 1/27/2016 (@BoomStudios)

It’s sci-fi and fantasy week at Boom!Studios. At least it is for me. Two titles this week: Wild’s End: The Enemy Within #5 and Venus #2. Plus Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Dragons #2 from last week.

Sacrifices are made in Wild’s End encounter with an invading alien force; and intrigue and secrets abound in the nascent colonization of Venus by NASA’s possible last heroes.

I highly recommend both. Buy ’em!

Here are the quotes:

“Time passes slowly in captivity, and in the darkness … The ambiguous darkness that is my current boon and my constant doom.”

“It is all vanity and resentment … and hubris.”

“All is light … until there is only darkness.”

“The books are not like this.”

“I just want to know if the A.I. sees me in the shower. And if so, what’s it think? You know out of ten.”

Quotes For #NCBD 12/02/2015 (@BoomStudios)

I picked up two @BOOMSTUDIOS titles this week.  Both were excellent.

What self-respecting eighties kid did not love Jim Henson. He gifted to our world Sesame Street (Grover, Oscar the Grouch, Bert and Ernie, Cookie Monster, and Big Bird), The Muppet Show (Kermit the Frog, Rowlf the Dog, and Ernie), Fraggle Rock, The Dark Crystal, and Labyrinth.

He also created The StoryTeller, a British live-action/puppet television series that originally aired in 1988. It retold European folk tales using a combination of actors and puppets. I have to confess I’ve never seen it. I think I may have heard of it, but that could be wishful thinking on my part–but now I’m on a quest to dig these old episodes up.

Thanks to @BOOMSTUDIOS and @Archaia for bringing The Storyteller stateside via their graphic novels and comic books. In its latest iteration, the focus is on dragons; and whats not to love–mythic tales of dragons told with humor and pathos.

Rowan’s Ruin, on the other hand, is about a young American woman taking on the paranormal in the UK. The mystery takes a twisted turn, as Katie raids the “microfiches one last time.”

Here are the quotes:

“Most fathers often struggle with being too hard or too soft on their children.”


“His father’s love knew no bounds. Everything he had done was for him.”


Story and Art by Daniel Bayliss, Scripted by Fabian Rangel Jr., Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Dragons #1, BOOM!STUDIOS

“So. Hamlet. Wow. He’s like a mirror for the whole human condition, isn’t he.”


“I’m gonna raid the microfiches one last time.”


Mike Carey, with Art by Mike Perkins, Rowan’s Ruin #3, BOOM!STUDIOS
