January 21, 2015 at 12:02 am | Posted in Comic Books, Dark Horse, Reviews | Leave a comment

B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth #127 is a Hellboy story without Hellboy. That said, it still has the same artistic richness and mysterious story elements that make the franchise intriguing. In this issue, one of the agents returns from near death experience and finds a revelation for himself, one that might be the key to their success against a mystical monster.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 182 starts out with Jeremiah and Zach talking about tv shows and Nobility. Then they break to their interview with Adrienne Wilkinson who talks about Xena: Warrior Princess, The Force Unleashed, voice work, acting, and Sam Witwer’s impressive knowledge of Star Wars. It’s a nice interview with some good behind-the-scenes looks at various shows and Star Wars projects.

Coffee With Kenobi: Show #29 is a look back at 2014 with special guest Rob Wainfur (The Bearded Trio). Together they recap their year in Star Wars, their guests, interviews and major events of the year. If you’ve missed any episodes, this is a great way to find out what you need to go back and listen to.

Full of Sith: Episode XCVIII Bobby, Bryan and Amy share what they’ve been up to, before Bobby moves things along to a variety of topics, keeping the pace moving, and the discussion flowing. They touch on Gary Whitta leaving the Star Wars standalone movie, their thoughts on Star Wars Rebels “Path of the Jedi”, the fates of Kanan and Ezra, who Fulcrum might be (Leia or Ahsoka?), whether Kanan is really a Jedi cowboy, whether Hera has been pushed to the side, the impact of Yoda, new The Force Awakens casting leaks, the actors from The Raid, and movie posters. Great episode covering a lot of ground. A nice burst of Star Wars. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Regardless, with so many variants and artists involved, it’s quite the gallery. Enjoy!

Alien vs. Predator: Fire and Stone #4 comes to a stunning, visual end…and leaves the story behind somewhere in issue #3. Seriously, you would probably enjoy this issue better if you didn’t read it and just enjoyed the visual splendor of the artwork. For what it’s worth, here’s our review of Alien vs. Predator: Fire and Stone #4.
