Review - Dominatrix: Hellbent in Heels #1 (@arcanastudio)

"Ugh...I hate my life!"

The latter is the main character in Dominatrix: Hellbent in Heels #1 from Arcana Studio. The issue is written/lettered by Erik Hendrix, illustrated by Kewber Baal and colored by Chandran Ponnusamy.

Review - Samurai Slasher: Late Fees

"The following comic is based on a true story."

Loss is something that's inevitable for everyone in this world. The way we react to loss varies wildly from one person to the next and it's likely that few respond in a way the main character does in Samurai Slasher: Late Fees. The issue is written by Mike Garley, illustrated by Lukasz Kowalczuk and colored/lettered by Lukasz Mazur.

Review - Lazaretto #1 (@boomstudios)

Review - The Black Sable #1 (@zenescope)

"Now it and my crew...are some of the most notorious pirates on this side of the galaxy."

Zenescope seems to agree and offer up a new take on the concept in The Black Sable #1.

Review - Moneypenny One-Shot (@DynamiteComics)

"Oh leave Agent Moneypenny alone. She's here to protect us, after all."

When it comes to characters, James Bond has more or less cornered the market on the international spy business. There are others in his organization that support him though; some of whom aren't nearly as feted because their roles are perceived as nothing more than support. In Moneypenny One-Shot from Dynamite Entertainment that's shown to be far from the case. The issue is written by Jody Houser, illustrated by Jacob Edgar, colored by Dearbhla Kelly and lettered by Simon Bowland.

Review - Mitch Hammer: Construction Mutant #1 (@relicswish)

Sometime that push goes a little too far, as is the case in Mitch Hammer: Construction Mutant #1. The issue is written by Chris Lewis, penciled by Fernando Pinto, colored by K. Michael Russel and lettered by Nic J. Shaw.
