This month has been a really good month for reading, both comics and books alike. First off I love the new comic from Image, Witch Doctor. This has to have been one of my favorite comic reads this year so far.

I would say one of my odd choices for this month was a re-read of my old, DC Comics Movie Special: Star Trek 3 The Search For Spock. You may or may not be aware that I am currently working on some Star Trek themed art, this being one of my favorite old Star Trek comics from back in the day (Yep, it is the original one I picked up as a kid from the local news agents!) I got a bit of a Trek buzz on and couldn't help but dig it out.

My big disappointment in the reading pile was Dark Horse Presents #2, in my eyes it is a complete let down. Maybe from being a fan back in the day of its original title run and the hype surrounding this new run meant that it was always going to fail. There was no spark there for me, I might as well have just flicked through the pages and looked at the pictures.

I would say the thing I am happy with the most this month is getting back into my novels and taking on the big meaty omnibus that is the Ultramarines, and really enjoying it! I think I put it down as I was all 'Ultramarined out'. If you know the Warhammer 40,000 universe and are familiar with the Ultramarines, you will probably know what I mean. They can be a little too Boy Scouty at times.

What can I say about A Princess of Mars! I love this book, re-reading it is fantastic and I wish I had done it years ago. It was watching the Disney trailer for the up and coming John Carter of Mars film that tickled my Warlord gland and got me picking it up that very night and finding it difficult to put back down again too!

As usual there is going to be some reviews of some of the above for the Escape from Tomorrow film, Comic and TV review spot: www.escape-from-tomorrow.blogspot.com
