Review - Gears of War 4 (@CoalitionGears)

It's been a minute since players have had the opportunity to shudder at the sound of "Boom" as an alien bellows it followed by a grenade launched in your direction. Gears of War Judgment was the last iteration of the series and wasn't as well-received as the previous three entries into the series. Since that game's release, Microsoft bought the IP and handed the reins over to The Coalition and their hard work has just seen release in Gears of War 4.

Omnicomic reviewed Gears of War 4 via a review code provided by Microsoft Studios.

Review - Villain #1

"Them superheroes always make me nervous."

In a world of superheroes and powers, it's only natural that those without would feel nervous. It's often likely that those powers are never used on innocents, but when they are things go bad really quickly. For a former villain like Gil Grimes in Villain #1 from Evoluzione Publishing, things are probably going to get a lot worse. The issue is written by Joshua Metzger, illustrated by Grzegorz Pawlak, colored by Ryan Burt and lettered by E.T. Dollman.

Review - Echoes TPB (@DarkHorseComics)

"This will be the last time..."

If we ever figure out time travel, there will be lots of destinations and eras people would visit. The reasons for those visits would be many, but you can be sure that things will get crazy sooner than later. In Echoes TPB from Dark Horse Comics, things are definitely getting intense. The issue is written by Mike Richardson, illustrated by Gabriel Guzmán, colored by Java Tartaglia and lettered by Nate Piekos.

Review - Pathfinder: Worldscape #1 (@DynamiteComics)

"Time for answers. Where am I? What have you people done with my friends?"

There are plenty of fantasy worlds out there to explore. The important thing is to remember to explore them with people you can trust and know will help out you in a tough situation. If those people are taken away from you and you have seek them out (as in Pathfinder: Worldscape #1 from Dynamite Comics), then just make sure you're good with a sword. The issue is written by Erik Mona, illustrated by Jonathan Lau, colored by Omi Remalante and lettered by Simon Bowland.

Review - James Bond Hammerhead #1 (@DynamiteComics)

"Inefficient 007, inadequate."

James Bond is a legend in both literature and film. The concept of the character is pretty ingenious, glamorizing the otherwise mundane life affiliated with intelligence gathering. Dynamite Comics thinks the character is very complex and offers a new version of him in James Bond Hammerhead #1. The issue is written by Andy Diggle, illustrated by Luca Casalanguida, colored by Chris Blythe and lettered by Simon Bowland.

Review - Warlords of Appalachia #1 (@boomstudios)

"You drawn from the river, big man?"

There are clear, cultural biases based on where one calls home. Many of those biases are typically the reason why wars break out and why one of America's most bloodiest in the Civil War occurred. For Warlords of Appalachia #1 from BOOM! Studios, the fallout from one Civil War wasn't enough. The issue is written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson, illustrated by Jonas Scharf, colored by Doug Garbark and lettered by Jim Campbell.

Review - Reborn #1 (@imagecomics)

"I know you look different and have no idea what's going on..."

Life after death is something of an abstract concept that's riddled societies for years. It's a very abstract concept that has a relatively simple scientific solution, but the question of the soul isn't nearly as simplistic. Reborn #1 from Image Comics seeks to offer a solution for both sides of the coin. The issue is written by Mark Millar, penciled by Greg Capullo, inked by Jonathan Glapion, colored by Fco Plascenscia and lettered by Nate Piekos.

Review - Doctor Crowe #1 (@215Ink)

"So we're walking into a trap, eh?"

Doctors have a way of curing what ails you. Sometimes it's just a viral infection, whereas other times it's a werewolf. Those experienced in the latter like Doctor Crowe in Doctor Crowe #1 from 215 Ink are definitely few and far between. "Beneath the Black" is written by Corey Fryia, illustrated by Tony Gregori, colored by Josh Jensen and lettered by Micah Myers. "Wretched" is written by Fryia, illustrated by Matt Horak, colored by Doug Garback and Mark Dale and lettered by Nic J. Shaw. "The Lost Coven" is written by Fryia, illustrated by Karim Whalen, colored by Laura Lee and lettered by Myers. "Dreamwaker" is written by Fryia, illustrated by Gregori, colored by Jensen and lettered by Taylor Esposito.

Review - Black #1 (BlackMaskStudio)

"They patrol the places, but they don't know the faces."

Various peoples have faced various levels of hardships throughout history and the one concept is a general feeling that one group is "better" in some way than the other. It's something that leads to violence, hatred and a rapid descent into becoming even more close-minded. Black #1 from Black Mask Studio looks at that concept and puts a superhero twist on it. The issue is written by Kwanza Osajyefo, illustrated by Jamal Igle, inks by Robin Riggs, tones by Sarah Stern and letters by Dave Sharpe.

Review - Archie Meets Ramones (@ArchieComics)

"We are the worst band on the planet."

Archie pretty much runs Riverdale, acting as a mediator in lover's quarrels and an all-around best friend. He's great at those roles, but his performance as a musician leaves something to be desired. Good things The Ramones are around in Archie Meets Ramones from Archie Comics to teach him a thing or two. The issue is written by Alex Segura and Matthew Rosenberg, illustrated by Gisèle Lagacé and colored by Ma. Victoria Robado and Digikore Studios.
