“Adventures Of The Super Sons” #1

ADVENTURES OF THE SUPER SONS #1: The Super Sons are back in an all-new 12-issue miniseries written by Peter J. Tomasi! Check out the lost and secret adventures of Damian Wayne (Robin) and Jon Kent (Superboy) in this flashback miniseries that takes a deep dive into the bombastic bromance between the sons of the DC Universe’s greatest heroes. It’s an epic dual storyline that transcends current events, as Superboy and Robin find themselves targets of an interstellar team of young badasses called the Gang.

THE SANDMAN UNIVERSE #1: From the mind of New York Times #1 bestselling author Neil Gaiman comes a new world filled with dreams, nightmares and wonderful characters living together in a shared universe for a new story unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. A rift between worlds has opened, revealing a space beyond the Dreaming. Meanwhile, a book from Lucien’s library is discovered by a group of children in the waking world where it should not exist. Lucien calls for Matthew the Raven to seek out their master, Daniel, Lord of Dreams.

As Matthew flies across the Waking World and others, he finds a young boy named Timothy Hunter who, in his dreams, has become the world’s most powerful magician—but in his nightmares he is the world’s greatest villain. A new House has appeared in the realm of the Dreaming: the House of Whispers, with its proprietor, a fortune-teller called Erzulie. And elsewhere, Lucifer has fallen again, only this time he might be trapped in a Hell of his own design. Spiraling out of this special issue will be four all-new series set in the Sandman Universe. It all starts here!

“Little Immaculate White Fox” by Pearl

Artist: Pearl
Title: “Little Immaculate White Fox”
Label: Megaforce Records
Release Date: 1/19/2010
Genre: Rock/Blues Rock
Rating: 3.75/5

I had to say that when I received the advance copy of this release that its “commercial” or press copy to be more specific was absolutely superb. Dig this little bit of advertising on the artists behalf – “solve this riddle – raised on Meat Loaf, cultivated by a Motley Crue, exposed to Anthrax and shot out of a Velvet Revolver…..this Pearl is a rare find”. Incredibly clever if you ask me, for this “riddle” is actually a fantastic historical overview of the musical life of Pearl Aday as she is not only the step-daughter of the legendary Meat Loaf, but she also worked as a backing vocalist for Motley Crue and Velvet Revolver and is married to Anthrax’s Scott Ian. It’s an impressive resume when you think about it, but what of the musical talent found across the release…will it be any good, or something that even stands strong on its own two feet? Well yes indeed it does and if you are a fan of Hard Rock with a strong Blues and Soul groove built into it, then I think that “Little Immaculate White Fox” will be an album that you enjoy again and again. The album is the singer’s very first release with her own band but she has been featured on more recordings than I could quickly count and based on this you know that she is ready to deliver the goods on this one having prepared to do so for so long.
