Your First Look at Shaun Simon and Conor Nolan’s “WIZARD BEACH” from BOOM! Studios

Sunny skies and relaxing days ahead for these beach wizards in December 2018

BOOM! Studios is proud to reveal a first look at WIZARD BEACH #1, a new five-issue limited series available in December 2018 from writer Shaun Simon (The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys) and artist Conor Nolan (Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Giants).

What happens when a secret, reclusive community of mountain witches and forest wizards comes out of hiding and reveals itself to the world? A magical beach town with a boardwalk of magic shops and chill spots becomes the go-to location for those just looking to get away from it all. Enter Hexley Daggard Ragbottom, a young wizard who, against his father’s wishes, escapes the solitary confines of his isolated magical community to seek out the greatest wizard of all time, his Uncle Salazar, in an attempt to get his aid in fighting the life-threatening freeze killing their people.

But turns out, his Uncle “Sally” has other plans. Namely, napping and hanging out at his boardwalk magic shop “Wands and Such.”

“No beach vacation is complete without family drama, weird boardwalk shops, and that magical feeling of being miles from all your real life worries and woes. It’s just that in this case, Hex’s real life is full of magical creatures and two wizarding worlds at odds,” said Sierra Hahn, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios.

WIZARD BEACH is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ eponymous imprint, home to a world-class group of licensed comic book series and ambitious original series, including Joss Whedon’s Firefly, Lev Grossman’s The Magicians, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Planet of the Apes, Abbott, Mech Cadet Yu, Grass Kings, and Klaus.

Print copies of WIZARD BEACH #1 will be available for sale on December 5, 2018 at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one) or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the BOOM! Studios app.

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
