SHANDA FANTASY ARTS
Extinctioners: Tales of the Endangered #3 - $4.99
Fred Perry and J. Axer provide their interpretation of Shawntae Howard's furry superheroes in this series.>>
JUN061708D2 Elephantmen #2 32pg, color $2.99
story by Richard Starkings, art by Flint Henry & Moritat
Two stories: "Behemoth and Leviathan" (Hip Flask takes on the Croc Elijah Delaney above and below the waters of the Los Angeles canal) and "Shock Croc" (Elijah Delaney stops by Dogstar Radio to deliver an exclusive interview).
JUN062819E Wonderland #2 32pg, color $3.50
by Tommy Kovac & Sonny Liew
Somehow I missed the first in the series back in March (MAR062914E) but I've back-ordered it. This is licensed Diz-knee, purporting to be what happened in Wonderland after Alice left: the movie Wonderland, not the book. So it's crap, right? Apparently not, judging from reviews.
Tommy Kovac is the author/artist of *Stitch*, *Skelebunnies*, and *Autumn*, the latter two of which are also on-topic because of the skelebunnies and Autumn's squirrel familiar Widdershin. See http://www.tommykovac.com/comics.htm for samples of *Wonderland* and all the rest. Apparently Kovac managed to do an excellent all-ages comic, even if he surely can't display the edginess of his earlier comics. My only regret is that it's delayed the arrival of *Autumn* #5.
As for this issue? 'Deep in the Tulgey Wood, the White Rabbit and his housemaid, Mary Ann, are renegades from the wrath of the Queen of Hearts. To complicate matters, the Cheshire Cat lures them into a dreadful predicament with the burbling, fiery-eyed Jabberwock.' Well, maybe.
JUN062885E Sonic the Hedgehog #166 32pg, color $2.25
"Mobius: 25 Years Later Part 1": 'Mobius is ruled with an iron fist by King Shadow and his chief enforcer, Knuckles.' Ah, for the good old Robotnik days.
JUN063083F Thunder Monkey #3 24pg, b&w $0.99
by Lee Oaks
The origin of Thunder Monkey on July 7th, 1977. I don't seem to have ever caught #1 or #2, but it's got a supermonkey in it so I guess it qualifies.
JUN063109F Interiorae #2 8"x11", 32pg, b&w $7.95
by Gabriella Giandelli
The ghostly rabbit continues to observe the people in the apartment complex.
JUN063376H Wallace & Gromit 2007 Yearbook hc, 9"x14", 64pg, color $9.95
