Perdition (The Dred Chronicles Book 1) by Anne Aguirre $2.99
Perdition - Ann Aguirre

WELCOME TO HELL
 
The prison ship Perdition, a floating city where the Conglomerate’s most dangerous criminals are confined for life, orbits endlessly around a barren asteroid.  
 
Life inside is even more bleak. Hailed as the Dread Queen, inmate Dresdemona “Dred” Devos controls one of Perdition’s six territories, bordered on both sides by would-be kings eager to challenge her claim. Keeping them at bay requires constant vigilance, as well as a steady influx of new recruits to replace the fallen. Survival is a constant battle, and death is the only escape.
 
Of the newest convicts, only one is worth Dred’s attention. The mercenary Jael, with his deadly gaze and attitude, may be the most dangerous criminal onboard. His combat skill could give her the edge she needs, if he doesn't betray her first. Unfortunately, that's what he does best. Winning Jael’s allegiance will be a challenge, but failure could be worse than death…

Unexpected ending
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Vol. 1 - Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa,Robert Hack,Jack Morelli

Mostly because someone accidentally 'spoiled' the ending for me - and it wasn't at all what happened in the actual ending!

 

Anyway, this is atmospheric, creepy, and just perfect.   It hasn't gone past issue eight which came out in August - was part one of a new story.   This collects issues one through five, and sets Sabrina in a evil, devil-worshipping coven that includes her aunts, and her father.   It also takes place during the 1960s with the author trying - and succeeding - in giving in a Rosemary's Baby vibe.   It's a slow, psychological part, although not quite as nuanced as Rosemary's Baby.   (Then again, Rosemary didn't know what was going on and Sabrina is on the coven; this doesn't allow a parallel buildup of tension, but there's another buildup of tension.)

 

Beautiful artwork, lovely how the characters are, at the core, themselves - and yet not - and how they play on each other in this new storyline.   I'd like to think that Betty and Veronica, who do show up, might be later reincarnated as their Afterlife with Archie counterparts - but I suspect this is a completely separate AU.   Either way, I'll take it.  I'm trying to decide on if I should buy the next issue right now, or wait for a sale.  I normally just wait for the sales.

Short stories
Riverdale Vol. 1 - Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa,Alitha Martinez,Joe Eisma

Short stories that take place before and during the first season of Riverdale.   Mostly they focus on one character, although some are a couple or duo, and then they conclude with the first issue of the New Riverdale Archie by Mark Waid and Fiona Staples. 

 

Fun, but one star lost because the stories were too short and too one-dimensional for me to truly engage with this world or these characters.

People go ga-ga over this; I did not
Afterlife with Archie: Escape from Riverdale: Escape from Riverdale - Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa,Francesco Francavilla

I just didn't really feel this was all that climatic, mostly because the Archie in this feels more old school than New Riverdale, and I don't really care for old-school.   New Riverdale feels more full, and I care about the characters because they are more complex.   I immediately associated this with old school Archie - appropriate since this started out as a variant cover for an old-school Archie magazine - and I cared less for the characters. 

 

Probably won't continue with this.
