Pulp flavored dragon tales aimed at younger readers introduces third volume
from the official press release . . . . . . . . . .
Pro Se Productions, an innovative Genre Publisher, turned its attention to younger readers, bringing in fans under the age of eighteen, with the creation of their YOUNGPULP! imprint in 2013. The first series to debut in that line, COMPANION DRAGONS TALES, now debuts its third volume of exciting action packed tales. COPPER’S CHOICE by Nancy A. Hansen is now available in digital and print formats. “The dragons are back!” exclaims Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions. “COMPANION DRAGONS TALES VOLUME THREE: COPPER’S CHOICE introduces readers to yet another denizen of the world Nancy Hansen and other authors have conjured up to amaze and wow us. And this one, moreso than the previous volumes, not only deals with whimsical and dangerous adventure, but also mirrors decisions that I think we all have to make, young or old, in our lives in a way that both teaches and excites. Nancy’s writing style pulls a reader in and doesn’t let go!” When Nigel Gillette, renowned action/adventure author and wizard-at-large, wins a small dragon familiar in a magical game of chance, he is initially excited. Copper Dragon however, is not so thrilled. She has a shameful and abusive past, where she was trained harshly and used for illegal activities. Copper has serious trust issues, and so she refuses to believe that any human can be as friendly and generous as Nigel seems. She decides to strike out on her own, but quickly finds that the world is a cold and cruel place when you are only a small dragon who has always lived as a tame creature. So Copper has to make a choice. Should she return to the life of crime that she knows so well, or can she learn to trust this new human companion, who seems to have her best interests at heart? From the premiere chocolate producing world of Bulgosia to the famed magical resort island of Atlantis, Copper Dragon goes on a journey of self-discovery, meeting other fantastic creatures and getting into all sorts of difficult and sometimes dangerous situations. Along the way, she will learn not only to trust her own instincts, but to use those skills she has honed to her best advantage, in hopes of earning the life she deserves. Fly along with Copper in Nancy A. Hansen’s COMPANION DRAGONS TALES VOLUME THREE: COPPER’S CHOICE From Pro Se Productions and YoungPulp!

SINK #3 (Comix Tribe, December 20, 2017 release date) “A Head Full Of Wasps”. Story by John Lees. Art and Colours by Alex Cormack. Letters by Shawn Lee. Logo by Tim Daniel. Sink #3 will make you see red. Blood red. It’s splashed all over the pages of this story, seeping into each and every panel, even before the violence begins. “A Head Full Of Wasps” speaks to the buzzing that occurs in so many brainpans in these troubled and violent times - - and the red that is visualized when some of us experience injustice, brutality, cruelty, or abuse and then seek retribution, revenge, and bloody justice. If only everyone could read this story, and then remember it whenever their cheeks flush with anger - - and think before they act. Yeah, I’m a pipe dreamer. I also just set out to write a review. Don’t know why I’m treating SINK #3 like this is a morality fable. Have you ever read a simple but well-written story that leads to your thinking outside the box about oth…
SANDMAN Vol. 1: PRELUDES & NOCTURNES TPB: Sandman Vol. 1 Writer: Neil Gaiman Artist: Sam Kieth, Mike Dringenberg
With Neil Gaiman revisiting the Sandman universe with his new mini, Sandman: Overture, this seemed like a good time to review his original masterpiece. In the first volume, the Sandman is captured by a rich occultist who endeavors to capture Death and make it do his bidding. Instead, he captures the Sandman whom he imprisons for 70 years. Eventually escaping, he learns that the symbols of his office have since been turned into powerful relics used by the mystical community. On a search for the symbols of his station from which he draws power, the Sandman must deal with Constantine, go through Hell itself, and stop a deranged inmate of Arkham who suddenly has power and the sick mind to put it to use. Neil Gaiman likely needs no introduction if you’re familiar with Sandman. It’s his best known work and one of the few graphic novels ever to make the New York Times Bestselle…
