The Force is strong with this one....

 Getting in some quick reading on Mother's Day, and I stumble upon this in STAR WARS: OBSESSION #4. The joys of having a 15-year backlog of comics.....

Dark Screams, Volume Six

 The DARK SCREAMS anthology series is back with a new volume, headlined by a rare Stephen King short, and anchored by a staggeringly good Novella by Tim Curran, who gets top billing on the cover.

Suicide Squad, Vol. 1: The Black Vault

 There's a phrase that I have been accused of overusing, but one that I enjoy nevertheless: Profoundly stupid. SUICIDE SQUAD, VOL. 1: THE BLACK VAULT is exactly what I'm talking about when I use that phrase....a book, TV show, or movie that goes beyond stupidity, but runs with that stupidity until it is writ large, until the stupidity becomes a thing unto itself, the entity's prime reason for being. The book/TV show/movie almost becomes a stupidity-delivery engine, perpetuating itself with its own dopiness and preposterousness.

Michael Jackson: Rewind- The Life & Legacy of Pop Music's King, by Daryl Easlea

Regardless of how you may feel about the man, Michael Jackson left a tremendous musical legacy, and he lived a strange, fascinating life. Daryl Easlea's gorgeous coffee-table book MICHAEL JACKSON: REWIND- THE LIFE & LEGACY OF POP MUSIC'S KING offers up a beautifully illustrated overview of that life, but the book is chained to a ridiculously limiting gimmick that makes it a flawed, frustrating read.
