What I Read in May ‘17

So this month contains massive spoilers if you haven’t read the books I’m talking about.  Go do so, or don’t. But I truly recommend you do.  Continue reading

I’ll be honest; I hate filtering. I hate that there is so much crap my kids can be exposed to that I HAVE to filter, 24/7 on every single form of media just to make sure we stay within the realm of age-appropriate content. It’s frustrating. Exhausting. It’s flat out annoying. It’s annoying for ANY parent, but I think it’s especially so for a geek mom. Even more so when you are fairly conservative in your line of thinking when it comes to what you will allow your children to experience. When you are adamant about timing of exposure to certain stories, behaviors and experiences, it can make momming pretty challenging when all you really want to do is immerse yourself, and your family, deep within the four color well of never ending awesome. Now, I know plenty of geek moms who don’t think twice about it, let their kids watch whatever and their children are perfectly well behaved, well adjusted humans with good attitudes, so what am I so worried about??

SQUID-HEADED TITAN  RAMPAGES ACROSS A SCORCHED LAND

A MAN CALLED KRAKEN NOW AVAILABLE

The Savage and bizarre adventures of Kraken. Half  flesh and blood! Half god-thing! All man! Join the vicious meta-hooligan as he wanders the broken back of blasted world in search of the one fella who can set things right. The 58 page, wide-format, full color graphic novel is now available!

Fifty years after the ULTRA WARS wiped out all but the most resilient hypersapians, only  the most powerful and resolute survived. Among those, only the most brutal and cunning would lay claim to a funereal world without sunshine or love, a world of demi-gods and Acheronian super-thugs. And among these, none were more tenacious, more danger some, or more savage than a MAN CALLED KRAKEN!

 

This weird, sci-fantasy tale was created by Sean Belcher (writer) and Joey LaBartunek (artist), and can- maybe- described as somewhere between HP Lovecraft, Master’s of the Universe, and Conan the Barbarian. But that just scratches the surface of a story that is pure visual dynamite guaranteed to blow your eyes balls out of your head and send them bouncing around the room like a little rubber ball filled with nitroglycerin, exploding everything they hit!

For more information and a preview of the book you can check out www.amancalledkraken.com or www.forbiddenpanel.com
