Outcast_Volume_1_A_Darkness_Surrounds_HimBack in March (2017) I read the first issue of the comic book Outcast by Kirkman and Azaceta.  It came with my copy of the trade paperback The Walking Dead Volume 25: No Turning Back.  Back then I made a post taking about it and how I like it.  Was thinking about buying the trades.  Well a few days back while on ordering a different book.  Remembered about this one.  So ordered volume 1.  If I like what I read will order the others as well.  Think there are five volumes out so far.  With another one out soon.  Will be back with a review.

Robert_Kirkmans_Secret_History_Of_ComicsHave watched the first episode if the new AMC documentary series, Robert Kirkman’s Secret History of Comics.   Have seen a few documentaries covering this topic.  Some were ok and others not so much.  This being a six part series they will be able to cover more.   So in theory it should be really good.  The first episode talks about the history of Marvel.  Not sure if it reveled anything that hasn’t been talked about before.  However they did a really great job of putting it all together.  Looking forward to seeing all the episodes.  The second has aired all ready.  But haven’t watched it yet.  The rest will air on Monday nights.

Outcast Comic Book

Outcast_Comic_BookOpened my my copy of The Walking Dead Volume 25: No Turning Back a few days back.  It came with the first issue of Outcast.  This is another comic written by Robert Kirkman.  Wasn’t to sure about to expect when I opened the cover.  Have seen a few of the trade paper backs.  But never picked it up.  The story has supernatural horror elements.  Not really into that type of storylines. Well I was very surprised to at how good it was.  I liked it so much am thinking about buying the trade paper backs that are out.  As I am typing this (March 26, 2017) there are four volumes out.  When finished reading the issue.  Seen that there was an ad on the back for the TV show based of the comic.  Sharing the same name, Outcast.  Again never heard of it looked that up as well.  Turns out the first season has all ready aired.  With a second season on the way.  The show aired on Cinemax.
