    ‘The Sheriff of Babylon Vol. 1: Bang. Bang. Bang.’ (book review) at Forces of Geek

     

     

    The Sheriff of Babylon Vol. 1: Bang. Bang. Bang
    Written by Tom King
    Illustrated by Mitch Gerards
    Cover by John Paul Leon
    Published by Vertigo Comics
    ISBN: 978-1401264666 | Price $14.99
    Release date: July 13, 2016

    Crime and war in post-9/11 Iraq is captured in Sheriff of Babylon written by Tom King (Batman, The Vision) and drawn by Mitch Gerads (The Activity, The Punisher).

    King draws on his experience as a CIA officer to create a deeply personal rich reflection of the Baghdad of 2004 through the eyes of a former cop and current military contractor Christopher, his Muslim Iraqi girlfriend Sophia and former Iraqi police officer Nassir.

    By being exposed to the environment, King has created, along with the carefully researched accuracy of Gerads’ artwork, a military crime fiction of the highest order—it just so happens to be in comic book form.

    ‘Suicide Squad’ (movie review) at Forces of Geek

     

     

    Produced by Charles Roven, Richard Suckle
    Based on Suicide Squad by John Ostrander
    Written and Directed by David Ayer
    Starring Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie,
    Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney,
    Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje,
    Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, Cara Delevingne

    One thing we can all agree on is that the DC Cinematic Universe got off to a rocky start and seemed doomed with the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

    The controversy won’t end with this film, but I can say writer/director David Ayer finally gets it. Nothing is ever perfect but this movie is more than what meets the eye from the promos.

    Spanning superhero, comedy, supernatural and military genres and introducing visual elements more commonly found in video games, Suicide Squad is a wild ride.
