First Look: INCURSION #1 From Valiant

Andy Diggle, Alex Paknadel, and Doug Braithwaite Unveil a New Threat This February!

Valiant is proud to present your first look at INCURSION #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of AN UNEARTHLY NEW SERIES by celebrated writers Andy Diggle (SHADOWMAN) and Alex Paknadel (Friendo), with superstar artist Doug Braithwaite (X-O MANOWAR)!

On February 20th, one of Valiant’s most iconic and beloved heroes, the Eternal Warrior, emerges to lead the charge in an all-new limited event series, featuring the stunning premiere of a completely new villain to the Valiant Universe – a ruthless intergalactic conqueror known as Imperatrix Virago!

“Valiant fans will know that the Deadside is far more than just an afterlife. It’s a living, breathing ecosystem with its own customs and flora and fauna,” writer Alex Paknadel told Paste. “Imperatrix Virago doesn’t care about all that, though; for her, it’s a transport medium that will take her to any world in the universe where there is life. In other words, it’s the place from which she strikes.”

Beyond the margins of human reason lies a realm known as the Deadside, where the souls of the dearly departed linger – and where demons wait for us in the dark. For countless ages, Earth’s chosen protectors have guarded the veil between both worlds – but there are other doors to the Deadside, through which gruesome terrors from galaxies untold can trespass... With the planet’s freedom at stake, can the reigning Geomancer and her steadfast Eternal Warrior stand together against an invasion unlike any they’ve ever witnessed?

Following in the footsteps of FAITH: DREAMSIDE #1 this past September, BLOODSHOT RISING SPIRIT #1 later this month in November, and LIVEWIRE #1 in December, INCURSION represents the latest series in Valiant’s BEYOND initiative, carrying the critically acclaimed publisher forward into 2019 with an exploration into the Valiant Universe’s hidden depths!

From critically acclaimed writer Andy Diggle, rising star writer Alex Paknadel, and legendary artist Doug Braithwaite comes a story that will rock the Valiant Universe across dimensions in INCURSION #1 – featuring covers by Doug Braithwaite and Roberto de la Torre (NINJA-K)!

Supernatural: The Complete Fourteenth Season Blu-ray Review

*Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this blog post. The opinions I share are my own* Synopsis: The Winchester brothers’ harrowing journey into the heart of darkness continues as Supernatural enters Season Fourteen. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) have matched wits with monsters, demons, Heaven and Hell. But last season, the Winchesters and Castiel (Misha Collins) stumbled upon a terrifying alternate universe: an apocalyptic world where they were never born, all while training Jack (Alexander Calvert), the son of Lucifer, and trying to save their mother, Mary Winchester. The final battle with Lucifer and the Archangel Michael altered the Winchester’s lives forever… and created an even greater threat for Sam and Dean. The boys are back and willing to risk everything for their loved ones in all twenty thrilling new adventures, including a historic 300th episode, with a Winchester family reunion never

Book of the Week: Sci-Fi Thriller, Doyle’s Law

Doyle’s Law: Sci-Fi Thriller, a “Wild Ride”, Straps Readers into Space Station with Cosmos’ Most Irreverent Scientist Sam Roberts’ ‘Doyle’s Law’ is an intricate, cinematic new thriller that fuses intense paranoia and science fiction, told through the periscope of a bumbling, inept scientist attempting to fix the space station he has royally sabotaged. It’s a story in two parts, as time twists, plots tangle and the depths of human clumsiness become chillingly evident. One critic recently wrote, “This damn book cost me too much needed sleep. It was like a giant puzzle with all the pieces slowly making sense and fitting together. Well done, sir.” When most authors depict the crews of spaceships, they are painted as fearless, totally-in-control heroes using their wit and tenacity to achieve the unthinkable… …But Chief O’Connor, protagonist in Sam Roberts’ ‘Doyle’s Law’ is slightly less noble. In fact, his entire crew suspects him of sabotage and rampant buck-passing. As hostilities ri
