Crosswind by Gail Simone

crosswind

Crosswind #1 by Gail Simone and Cat Staggs

A hit man and a housewife play Freaky Friday!
Doubly narrated by the two switcherees, the story sets up where they are in their lives… Both are stuck with others calling the shots- they go where they’re told, do what they are supposed to do. And in typical Simone style, the protagonists are goaded into action by others… always getting their buttons pushed. But a sinister character lurks in the background, and some grand machination has flipped their minds and bodies. Woot! A great start- can’t wait until they meet!

Destroyer

STL043830
Destroyer by Victor LaValle
“Life and death appeared to me ideal bounds, which I should first break through, and pour a torrent of light into our dark world”.
225 years after he disappeared, Frankenstein’s monster resurfaces to take out a whaling ship. After his first contact with humans in centuries, he discovers that his maker, Victor, has a descendent. For Dr Baker, her heritage is alive in her work- she’s doing a little lab work of her own and this creature may have a secret to reveal that will push her research and attempt to heal her own broken heart into a new realm. A good start for a reimagining of a classic horror story. #boom! #victorlavalle #destroyer #jodyslunchtimereviews

Eleanor & the Egret

Review! Eleanor and the Egret #1

Writer John Layman just concluded his epic run on the series Chew, and now he’s biting into something new. The story surrounds an art heist, with the most unexpected culprits. A very pleasant surprise! Perfect for all ages, this is a great crime caper tha features good storytelling and lovely art.
