Shadowhawk Reviews Hinterkind, Star Trek Khan, & Red Sonja


Somehow I not only got over a week ahead with scheduled posts, but also behind on review posts. So this post will be different than usual instead of posting the actual snippets from the reviews I will only have a link to them. With that said here are the links to the Guest Review by Abhinav Jain from Shadowhawk's ShadeThe Founding Fields, and Just Beyond Infinity, for Vertigo's Hinterkind #2, Dynamite's Legends of Red Sonja #1 & Red Sonja #5, and IDW's Star Trek: Khan #2. I have also added my rating after each review. If you have any questions about my rating or want to discuss anything just leave me a comment.

See the Review Rating Overview page for more information on how I rate each comic.


Hinterkind #2 - Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?


Having left the sanctuary of their Central Park village, Prosper and Angus find 'the wild' lives up to its name as they run for their lives from the cannibal troll who lives under the Queensboro bridge. Meanwhile, on the West Coast, the Queen of the Sidhe, the first family of the fair folk discovers her daughter Tersia has more than a passing interest in her crown. When you're near immortal and almost ageless, advancement via assassination is the only way to get ahead.
