My Last NCBD in SoHo proved Violetly Cold

Violet Cold's album Empire of Love is a bit uneven to me, but that's because it swings BIG, and that's not a bad thing. This track was the first I'd ever heard of them - really a one-man project - when it came up in Apple Music's algorithm. I wasn't sure how I felt about it at first, but it quickly gained favor. Then, yesterday morning, I realized I had this song irrevocably in my head, and as soon as I fired it up on my headphones, it felt like an ice-cold mouthful of water on a hot day.

Oh Edgar Wright, how I love thee:


Looks fantastically Argento-inspired. 


This is a day late, but my Wednesday proved to be a beast. 

This week's NCBD was considerably quieter than I've had in a while, for sure. Which is nice on the wallet, and the stack of books I still haven't read from last week.

This cover art is SICK. I'm thinking this is the issue where all hell breaks loose and I can't wait to see that!

Possibly my favorite comic at the moment, I'm really loving Daniel Warren Johnson's take on this character. This book reminds me of old TSR gaming, 80s style, where it felt like ideas, monsters and weapons from every corner of pop culture were being drawn together into one great, big beautifully pulpy soup. It's Daniel Warren Johnson's aesthetic, and it's enhanced by his art, which is just scratchy enough in the right places to feel like a throwback to the way comics used to look.

Feels like I've been waiting for this one for longer than however long it's been since The Last Ronin #2 came out.

A very solid historical Horror story.
