Frontlines: Requiem: The Graphic Novel

From acclaimed writer Ivan Brandon (Drifter, Viking), this four-issue comic book series features a new stand-alone story set within the action-packed military sci-fi world of Marko Kloos’s bestselling Frontlines novels. Includes stunning artwork from Gary Erskine (Star Wars, Dan Dare, Doctor Who, Judge Dredd). I don’t remember buying this, but it was on my Kindle and when I noticed it, it was left on the last page. Amazon says “You borrowed this book for free with your Prime Reading membership on October 5, 2016” but I have no memory of buying nor reading it, so since I just read the...

One hundred years from today, Father – the benevolent artificial intelligence that governs the island nation of Japan – will gain sentience.

Batman: Room Full of Strangers

A recently retired, convalescing Jim Gordon, takes a trip to the shore for some much-deserved rest and relaxation. Soon after he registers at an old seaside resort, a body shows up and a murder-mystery is suddenly his to unravel! But will his investigation be derailed by a Batman-obsessed youngster? This is a very unsatisfying story with some decent artwork. I got it for $2 from BAM, but still feel like I over paid for what it was, which was a brief and sad story that had Batman in it for only 3 panels.
