Predator Life & Death comics at TFAW.com Predator: Life & Death #1
    By: Dan Abnett, Brian Thies, Rain Beredo, David Palumbo

    The next Predator/Alien/Prometheus event begins and stirs up some blood in Predator: Life & Death #1. This issue gives us a basic set we need. Where are they, why are they, and the hunt itself.

    Looks like the Wayland-Yutani Corp wants to start some more terraforming of planets but before they send their people down, they send the USMC to make sure there are no pirates already taking the planets resources (yeah, pirates–guess they learned from LV-426).

    It’s a good setup to what could be a fantastic Predator story. The pacing is good with strong characters. Brian Albert Thies’ art works very well, accompanied by Rain Beredo’s colors. I look forward to finding out more about this planet, its secrets, and why this mysterious ship is there. [Martin M. at Milwaukie TFAW]

    Black Widow #1
    By: Chris Samnee, Mark Waid

    This is one of the best hooks for a series I have read in awhile. Black Widow #1 is packed with action and so many questions that you just have to read the rest of the series. I fell in love with the art and color scheme as how well it matches the tone of the first issue. Mark Waid is back at it again, and has ceased to disappoint me every series he creates.

    Natasha is not a character that will disappoint you in any way, shape or form. She plays by her rules, no matter what those might be. If you love espionage, action, and one of the best female spies in the Marvel universe, I highly recommend picking up this issue immediately! [Darcey M. at Universal TFAW]

     	
Green Lantern #50 comic book review at TFAW.com Green Lantern #50
    By: Robert Venditti, Billy Tan, Juan Gimenez

    Everyone has differing ideas of when their life took a turn, and when they were their best version of themselves–able to overcome adversity despite the odds. This experience of inner conflict is regularly explored in the DCU. Hal Jordan faces himself at one of his lowest points in Green Lantern #50. This all happens because of the magic of the DC Multiverse and the return of Hal’s previous incarnation as Parallax.

    Hal has other plans and this Multiversal bleed appears to be leading him to some strange new Rebirth along with the rest of the DC Universe! If the rest of the DC titles begin to experience this change, shifting them towards something familiar yet new, the entire Rebirth initiative will be something quite tremendous to witness.

    Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #1
    By: Kyle Higgins, Hendry Prasetya, Matt Herms

    It’s been about two months since issue MMPR #0 first hit the shelves and after reading Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #1, I can tell you that it’s still really good. Kyle Higgens does a great job developing the characters we grew up with in a way that feels the same as they ever were but, updated so that new readers won’t get lost in mythology.

    I really, really enjoy Hendry Prasetya’s character designs and Matt Herms’ colors. Even the small glimpse of a past foe was a really cool nod to the show. If you’re a Power Rangers fan–old or new–this is a great comic for you!

    PS: Be sure to pick up the MMPR #1 TFAW Exclusive Variant (pictured here); only 500 were produced, and they’re going fast! We teamed up with one of our Sean “Cheeks” Galloway (Hellboy Junior, WoW: Pandaria, Teen Titans Go, Wednesday Comics) for what we think is a pretty incredible cover. [Martin M. at Milwaukie TFAW]

    August Product Review Contest Winners Announced

    Marvel Spider-woman Bishoujo Statue review at TFAW.comEvery month, our customers submit hundreds of product reviews that help others determine how great (or flat-out bad) certain comics, graphic novels, and other collectibles are. We took a look at the reviews that were submitted in August and are awarding $25 gift certificates as part of our monthly Product Review Contest. And the winners are (insert drum roll here):

    Our first contest winner is Peter all the way down in Australia! Peter wrote a couple really great reviews for a few statues last month — his review for the Marvel Spider-Woman Bishoujo Statue caught our eye:

    WOW! Another stunning figure from our friends at Kotobukiya . . . again exceptionally vibrant colors make this figure stand out really well amongst other bishoujo models. Goes well under Sideshows new J. Scott Campbell spidey statue as well! Easy to say satisfaction guaranteed, sure to be a sell out.

    MPH #1 review at TFAW.comOur second winner is Kaela from Santa Rosa, CA. She had this to say about Black Widow #8:

    Black Widow’s 2014 run is easily becoming my favorite of the year. Phil Noto’s artwork beautifully captures Natasha’s world & is a stylized alternative to what is typical for Marvel. Edmondson’s writing continues to bring us the Black Widow movie that we may never get. Plus, it’s always enjoyable seeing Natasha and the Winter Soldier in the same panel.

    Marvel Grab Bag graphic novel review at TFAW.comLast but not least, Hector from New York dropped by to share his thoughts about the DC Comics Cover Girls Poison Ivy Statue:

    Awesome quality for the price. The DC Comics Cover Girls statues all seem to be a good buy. I really like this piece and look forward to owning more from this line.

    Thanks so much to everyone who wrote reviews last month. You’re helping people decide what to get (or what to avoid) next.

    Remember, you don’t have to write a novel to win. Product reviews can be short and sweet, or highly detailed — as long as they help other customers, that’s what we’re looking for. So submit your reviews and help your fellow collectors sort out the “HOT” from the “NOT”! Who knows, you may be one of next month’s winners.

    HOW TO SUBMIT A PRODUCT REVIEW:
    It’s simple! Just visit any product page and look for this:

    Click on it and our product review form will appear in a popup. Just fill out the pertinent information and submit your review, and you’re done! We’ll take a look at your review and get it up on the product page soon thereafter!

    There’s also a really easy way for you to call up everything you’ve ever ordered from us and review it. Simply log in to your account and go into the Order History Section. Next to each item, you’ll see a “Review it!” link.
