Prisoner_of_the_Floating_World_TPB

After a month-and-a-half long break, Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the first comics round-up for December, and the penultimate one for the year.

“For a change, this was a fairly good crop of stories, whether it is the always amazing Paul Dini’s Zatanna or the other supernatural of DCU with Dan DiDio’s Phantom Stranger, which turned out to be fairly decent, especially once J. M. DeMatteis stepped in for scripting duties. ” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

“Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files delivers a solid standalone graphic novel, whilst Brian Wood impresses with Mara. Over at Zenescope, Robyn Hood: Wanted is entertaining and fun whilst Corinna Beckho impresses with the first volume of the second Star Wars: Legacy series, set 138 years after the events of Star Wars: A New Hope.” ” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields
