Mirka Andolfo’s Sweet Paprika: Black, White & Pink # 1– With Sweet Paprika, Mirka Andolfo created this whimsical yet steamy series that put the focal point on a character named Paprika, a successful businesswoman who’s looking for love and romance while the series is a hit among fans of independent comics, Andolfo takes the time to put out this compilation of short stories by enlisting such A-List talents such as Steve Orlando, Stjepan Seji, Otto Schmidt and Kim Krizan just to name a few but they really brought their creativity to the table while the stories presented here are as XXX-rated and explicit but it keeps your attention no matter what. If you’re looking for a story that shows no shame but revels in the sexual overtones then give this special a try before heading over to read the ongoing….. just be sure to have a glass of wine and a fan on hand!

The Nasty # 1– When we were kids, I’m sure some of us had an imaginary friend that we kept until we reached adulthood but for Thumper Connell, his imaginmary friend, who comes in the form of a masked kiiler from his favorite slasher film has been with him throughout his entrie life as this series takes place in Scotland circa 1994 as Thumper and his friends, known as The Murder Club find themseves in a jam when they get a hold of a rare horror flim that makes them targets of a group called The British Moral Decency League (Bet you can’t say that three times) and their mission to destroy any bad film they feel is replusive; This series is like a random BBC show mixed in with some elements from a Kevin Smith movie with the “Calvin & Hobbes” influence added it but I do like the celebration of fandom and how it brings people together if it’s a comic book or horror movies but at the same time it also keeps the horror aspects intact as well as keeping the nostaligia factor alive and well. This series might frighten you all while letting you bask in its charm. This is a delightful read that no true horror fan will not want to miss.

Planet Of The Apes # 1– I know for a fact that this franchise has some of the most loyal fans ever, but this new series, by the creative team of David Walker and Dave Wachter, falls completely short as the explanation of the birth of the P.O.T.A. got stale after the first few pages and it feels like Walker crafted his plot from an old script that was probably lying around the old offices of 20th Century FOX after the Disney buyout. Nothing new is presented here and for the most part, I feel like the readers should wait until a new writer comes alone to do something that Marvel had planned all along- To properly relativize The Planet of The Apes.

Spider-Man # 7– By now everyone heard about the “new” sidekick called Spider-Boy and yes his appearance completely overshadows the conclusion to the “End of The Spider-Verse” arc which is sad because Spider-Boy has a brief appearance since he was co-created by Dan Slott, one would think he would have learned his lesson after the disaster known as Alpha, Spidey’s original sidekick and how that didn’t turn out as Slott would have wanted but I’m guessing that this time around, it looks like he has a plan for Spider-Boy, too bad it wasn’t implemented in this issue but for now I’ll keep my excitement for this “new” character alive but let’s hope that Slott’s got something up his sleeve and not use poor Spider-Boy as a way to promote “Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse” so he can keep both Marvel and Sony happy. Only time will tell!

Well, that’s it for me this week. Thanks for sticking around and I will see you all next time.
