Two shots! Longer than a one shot, shorter than a mini! Do they even make these any more?

Let's do this!

HELLBOY: THE ISLAND (Dark Horse)

Space: Above and Beyond was a short-lived (one season) Fox T.V. show in the 90's that focused on a squadron of U.S. Marine Corps space fighter pilots during a war with insect-like alien invaders known as "Chigs". 


It was pretty gritty and realistic and still holds up fairly well if you can ignore the 90's-Tastic CGI effects.  As a former Marine myself, I was a big fan and hated to see it go after only one season. . .especially since they ended it on a cliffhanger!

To me, Solomon Kane is one of the most unique characters out there. . .not nearly as well known as other R.E. Howard creations like Red Sonja, King Kull, or Conan. . .but still a great character.  For those who are not familiar, Kane is basically a combination of The Punisher and Blade The Vampire Hunter, created long before either of those characters and set in the late 1500's/early 1600's.  If you like dark stories about the supernatural and those who fight it, then definitely check out some Solomon Kane (Most of his earlier comic appearances are from Marvel).

ANYWAY. . .

SOLOMON KANE: RED SHADOWS (Dark Horse)

Welcome back to the series that's like that one guy at work who just does what he has to do and nothing else. He knows he's never going to get a great review from management, but he doesn't care as long as he just gets paid.

THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD (DC)

Welcome back to the 80's!  Smell that cheap paper, boy! SMELL IT!

That's right.  We didn't need fancy paper in my day.  And stories that made sense?  Didn't need those either.  You kids don't even know how good you got it now.  I had to buy MY comics from the grocery store.  One story in every issue.  None of that continuity you kids talk about.  Didn't need it.

City of Angels was the sequel to The Crow. . .and in my humble opinion, the only decent sequel.  I like the movie quite a bit, which probably puts me at odds with a lot of Crow fans who (according to reviews I've read) hated it for being even darker and more relentlessly depressing than the original, with not even the small bit of light and hope represented by young Sarah and the detective from The Crow.  The second movie is so grim that the ending was changed so there would be SOMETHING happy in it.

But that's the movie.  This is the comic book tie in.  Let's take a look, shall we?

I've got a couple of GREAT ones this time out, folks! 

THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD (Dark Horse)

ISSUE 1

I just noticed that 3 out of the 4 "Two Shots" I have at hand are from Dark Horse Comics.  I wonder if the two issue story was one of their "things".  I never really noticed it before.

ANYWAY. . .

Two-shots! More than a one-shot, less than a mini.  Let's do this!

I discovered that I DON'T actually have the full run of this series like I thought.  I am missing issues 32, 36 and 37.  But trust me, you aren't missing much.  Last batch. . .let's do this!
