Comics Review - Original Sin (Mini-Series)

Comics Name - Original Sin (Mini-Series)
Published By - Marvel Comics
Genre - Super Hero/Crossover
Writer - Jason Aaron
Artist - Mike Deodato
Publication Date - April 2014 - August 2014
So this time Marvel decided to do a different kind of event; instead of a bundle of characters, an overarching plot and tons-of action they decided to do a mystery involving the murder of The Watcher and a group of superheroes trying to solve the mystery while also trying to deal with the consequences of the death. But sadly the story fell flat on its face with the mystery being not much of a mystery and with horrible pacing as of dragging a 4-5 issue series into 8-9 issues.

Short Story Review - Daemonology

Short Story - Daemonology
Writer - Chris Wright
Series - Horus Heresy
Published By - Black Library

To be honest I was a bit reluctant to pick this up, as I have not previously read any Horus Heresy novels (which I have been meaning to start from the beginning for quite awhile now). My knowledge of the event is very minimal, specially from various sources (mostly reviews) from the internet. But somehow I decided to read this short, and I am quite glad I did.

Short Story Review - Yarrick: The Gallows Saint

Short Story - Yarrick: The Gallows Saint
Writer - David Annandale
Series - Warhammer 40,000
Published By - Black Library

David Annandale yet again delivers a short but quite entertaining Yarrick story. This time he focuses a bit less time on action but makes up for it with strong grasp of his titular character and a little mystery to boot.
