Wow, it’s been quite a long time since I’ve graced the internet with my words of not-so-much wisdom about comic books. We’ve gone through another Civil War, the Inhumans and X-Men were on the verge of wiping each other out, Spider-Man’s clones have come and gone, and here we are still waiting for Captain America’s master plan to come to fruition. Since it’s been literal months since I’ve shared my thoughts each week on one select book, I want to catch everyone up on some of what I’ve been reading, my thoughts on a few of the event books, and how I want to continue writing about comics.

Every Wednesday I’m on the lookout for new #1’s and new series to pick up and find that next great book. This week I picked up Eclipse #1, which I believe to be the first book by Zack Kaplan to be published by one of the major publishers, Image/Top Cow. This book takes an interesting setting and puts it alongside a classic murder plot with some fantastic art and writing. As always be avoiding spoilers but we may have to go over some of the plot points and visual notes to give you a good idea of what’s happening in this book.
Looking at the last few reviews I’ve done, I realized I haven’t done an Image book in a while. I looked through my collection and saw Horizon #1, a monthly series written by Brandon Thomas with art by Juan Gedeon and Frank Martin. Going over this book again I realized it keeps a lot of the plot to itself in this issue, after I finished the afterword by Brandon Thomas I had a better idea of where this book is going. That being said, I’ll avoid talking about what is included in the afterword and spoilers as much as possible, but just to warn you, there may be some.
