My Thoughts, Solicited: September 2015 Solicitations

  It’s time to see what’s going on in September in the world of comics! There’s a new series coming out from Rick Remender from Image comics as Marvel’s Secret Wars tie-ins begin winding down and some finishing up. We even say good-bye to the Ultimate Universe, whether that’s a good thing or not for readers.     UFOLOGY #6 (of 6) Writers: James Tynion IV & Noah J. Yuenkel Artist: Matthew Fox Cover Artist: Matthew Fox Final issue! The mystery of what happened 12 years ago is revealed as Becky and Malcolm face off against the D/H agent and the alien. Company: Boom! Studios  My Thoughts: A really cool alien, mystery, thriller-like story comes to its conclusion. James and Noah’s tales about Becky and Malcom dealing with the aliens has been an interesting ride dealing with the mystery and secrets uncovered and now it all ends here.

Bat-Mite loves Batman (hence the name) though he goes around saying Batman’s his sidekick and all. The mini series has been chronicling his (mis)adventures and this issue sees him teaming up with none other than Booster Gold as Booster needs him to find a villain (one that appeared in the issue before). Bat-Mite is a funny, though a nuisance character, so he basically fits right in alongside Booster’s character type (for the most part). Bat-Mite is a six-issue miniseries that so far has had two-issue story arcs play out and are all still interconnected.

The Best of Wes: 5 Movies to Marathon this Labor Day

Earlier this week on August 30th, famed director Wes Craven passed away after losing his battle with brain cancer. Wes was widely known for his genre defining horror films, often directing and writing some of his best works. His films and their themes could be shocking and gruesome, but the multi-talented man always presented himself as a humble, affable, and passionate personality. His presence in the film industry will sorely be missed.
