Gary Whitta’s ABOMINATION – Book Review

Gary Whitta’s “Abomination”

Book Review by Kara Shaw

abominationENGLAND, 888 A.D. — As King Alfred the Great struggles to defend his realm from hordes of Viking invaders, the Archbishop of Canterbury stumbles upon an ancient secret — dark magic that could turn the tide of the war in England’s favor. But when exposure to the magic corrupts the Archbishop, Alfred commands his greatest Knight, Sir Wulfric, to hunt the mad priest down. One final campaign for Wulfric, and one that brings with it disastrous consequences… (author synopsis from GoodReads)

If you enjoy reading a book that will eek itself into your dreams and linger with you even after you’ve turned the last page, then Abomination is the one. I heard about this book from a friend and started reading it before he did. He had a day off and finished it before me, urging me to hurry up so we could talk about it… and boy did we. Every time something happened, I said, “Am I predicting this right?” “Is this what’s going to happen next?” I was happy to receive no spoilers and enjoyed reading every word on the page.

Anime/Manga Themed Video Games

Mobile_Suit_Gundam_-_Zeonic_Front_CoverartGuest Submission Japanese style manga/anime video games share some fundamental conceptual elements, and these have proved to be a real success with most gamers. Manga are comics that originate from Japan, and they have a complex and long pre-history in ancient Japanese art. Various genre of manga exist such as action-adventure, sports and game, comedy, science fiction, etc. Various manga characters from popular novels and series, which are considered as established media characters have been adapted into new stimulating media genre such as video games and online casino slots games. Various manga/anime series are released each and every year, and some of them are planned to be broadcasted for only one or two seasons, in order to gauge the interest of the viewers. And if the series prove to be popular, video games themed on the characters of these series are released. This acts as a cost-effective way of keeping a franchise active, whereby it is not necessary to follow up on the original anime series.

A popular Japanese style manga/anime online slot game known as Super Graphics Upside Down by Realistic Games can be played at Magical Vegas, a leading online casino. Symbols found on this 5 reel 20 payline slot game include the maneki-neko which is a common cat figurine that is often kept as a lucky charm.  This game perfectly portrays the manga/anime style along with Japanese inscriptions. Classic slot game symbols such as number 7, melon, grapes, plum and lemon can be found on this game, along with high ranking cards. 15 free spins are awarded when 5 scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels. When triggered, a blue haired Japanese anime character named Satsuki will walk in front of the reels before it is turned upside down, and this feature may award up to 5000x the stake value.

All-new Voltron: From The Ashes Comic Book Series Comes to Dynamite

WRITER CULLEN BUNN HEADLINES CREATIVE TEAM FOR ALL-NEW VOLTRON: FROM THE ASHES COMIC BOOK SERIES

voltron
June 29, 2013, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Dynamite Entertainment is proud to announce the return of the Voltron Force in the pages of Voltron: From the Ashes, an all-new six-issue miniseries written by Cullen Bunn (Deadpool, Captain America) and illustrated by Blacky Shepherd (3 Days in Darkness). Set two hundred years after the events of Dynamite’s previous Voltron series, the miniseries will introduce a new team to pilot the five lions that form the Defender of the Universe. The debut issue will launch in September 2015 and feature cover artwork from acclaimed Transformers artist Alex Milne.

Writer Cullen Bunn says,You don’t grow up in the day and age of my childhood without developing a deep and abiding love for Voltron, so writing the adventures of such an iconic giant robot is a real thrill and a treat. With this story, I hope to show a couple of different sides of Voltron, one vibrant and exciting like the old cartoons, and one a little more dark and even frightening. This dichotomy should be a lot of fun for readers and allow me to explore different sides of the characters involved. For me, Voltron has this mythic quality that I really want to delve into, and I’m excited to see what fans think of my contribution to the Voltron legend!”VoltronFromTheAshes
