“Look, if you had, one shot, or one opportunity to seize everything you ever wanted in one moment. Would you capture it, or just let it slip?” It is not often I will quote Eminem, but this opening line from his song “Lose Yourself” released in 2002 is applicable to this week’s finest, Black Science #16. This is it. The last handful of issues have been leading up to these final moments. The moments right before the pillar will be making it’s final jump. Ideally everyone gets home safe and sound, but seeing as Black Science probably doesn’t end with issue #16, I’m going to guess something else happens. Each character is faced with their own “one shot” to seize what they want. Unfortunately for the team, no one wants the same thing.

HERE ARE SOME ISSUES THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.theotherbluth recommends the inconspicuous… Nameless #2 The first issue was awesome, full of mystery and intrigue. I’m even more excited now that we get to explore this insane world Morrison and Burnham are creating
Light pull list but full playlist this week. We have classic metal, classic rock, classic purple royalty, classic indie and after the trap rap fill were going back real lyrical lyricism hip hop yo. That and more Danny Brown. If you only learn one thing from me let that be that you can always have more Danny Brown in your life.
Back in November I started a new segment called Image #1’s where I wrote a progress report on some of the new series Image had to offer that month. I plan on making this a monthly segment. When reviewing all the new Image series of December there was only one I wanted to write about. Instead of writing a December progress report on one book I put together a top ten list of the best #1 issues Image had to offer in 2013. This list is only based on issue #1 of the series. The unique aspect of #1 issues is that for the most part you do not know what to expect. You enter the book open minded and it either hooks you or it doesn’t. Image put out 54 #1 issues in 2013, more than one new series every week. This top ten list provides a wide range of books from comedies to horrors. I think Image’s slogan should be “Something for everyone” because that is exactly what they have to offer. Enjoy 2013’s top ten best beginnings from Image. If you are wondering what the December book was I deemed worthy to write about check out #9.
