Van Lente was raised by a mystery-loving mother (who preferred Dorothy Sayers to Agatha Christie, but we won't hold that against her) and a wisecracking Woody Allen-lookalike scientist father in what appears to be some kind of genetic experiment to write his first novel, TEN DEAD COMEDIANS, even though neither parent nor the son himself would know it for many years. Van Lente spent his time between birth and authoring Ten Dead Comedians becoming the #1 New York Times best selling writer of graphic novels like Cowboys & Aliens (the basis of the feature film), Odd is on Our Side with Dean R. Koontz, and several entries the gorily funny Marvel Zombies series. He did some other things too, but they hardly seem worth mentioning.

I just didn't find this entertaining enough to be a five, or even four star, book. It seemed like a typical GI Joe story, although they're now working in the open so they have to keep public opinion of them from dropping too low. Mostly, I hated how much they got into Cover Girl, and her backst...

I'm really enjoying Valiant lately, and I don't know why I don't read more of it. (It's edged out by my main companies, and I don't have the money, time or energy to read it all. I will, however, be looking for Bloodshot Salvation when that comes out.) War Mother is about people living in 4001...

This volume concludes the plot started in Volume 1. Generation Zero and Keisha go into the Heroscape to rescue lost relatives and the whole story is eventually resolved – without giving too much away. Well-told, engaging and well-illustrated, this small collection (the concluding four issues) fini...
