Earth 2: World’s End #5
Published by DC Comics
The world ending of World’s End continues on its way. Again, there’s a big old box of art teams, all spread thinly across this book. Having issues with the pencil and inks is a bit moot at this point, but it bear repeating. With DC publishing two other weekly titles with rotating artists who handle one issue a moth, it’s honestly inexcusable that they let this happen with such weak art.
World’s End continues with its stories. However, this week’s cover is deceptive, like last time. Alan Scott, a.k.a. Green Lantern, does get some much missed panel time. He’s pitted against on of Earth 2’s first villains, »

Raised by the Order of Solomon, Adam Cahill is one of a rare handful of highly trained warriors bound by bloodline to guard the Seven Holy Seals that contain the End of Days. But ageless forces have conspired towards a prophetic event foretold by numerous cultures and multiple religions, and when that cryptic date arrives, they strike against the order without mercy! Adam’s world is shattered, his family murdered, and he is sent spiralling into Hell itself. He is Helldiver and he is tasked with stopping The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse before they bring about the end of the world and destroy everything he loves.
The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse is a gritty and dark comic of epically dramatic proportions. Aimed towards a mature audience, it is filled with enough violence, »

Honorary Oscars 2014: Hayao Miyazaki, Jean-Claude Carrière, and Maureen O’Hara; Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award goes to Harry Belafonte One good thing about the creation of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Awards — an expedient way to remove the time-consuming presentation of the (nearly) annual Honorary Oscar from the TV ratings-obsessed, increasingly youth-oriented Oscar show — is that each year up to four individuals can be named Honorary Oscar recipients, thus giving a better chance for the Academy to honor film industry veterans while they’re still on Planet Earth. (See at the bottom of this post a partial list of those who have gone to the Great Beyond, without having ever received a single Oscar statuette.) In 2014, the Academy’s Board of Governors has selected a formidable trio of honorees: Japanese artist and filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, 73; French screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière, 82; and Irish-born Hollywood actress Maureen O’Hara, »

This past weekend I was fortunate enough to attend the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo on behalf of Sound on Sight. I had a great time, and I was able to do a number of things there that you don’t actually care about. You care about the comics, and I don’t blame you. (Yes, dear reader, I am in your head. You should clean in here more often. It’s like you weren’t expecting company or something.) Now, instead of turning in the same articles that you’ll see on any other comic site, we’re taking a different route. While at C2E2, I met a lot of writers and artists, people you’ve probably never heard of, and I bought a lot of creator owned/independent comics. So without further ado, I bring you The Best Indies Of C2E2.
