Well boys and girls we finally get a longer and more in depth trailer for the up coming X-Files series. Yes I know it is only 6 episodes but if you we lived in England that is a season.
I have to say it is fun and exciting to see Gillian Anderson and David Dochovny back together again. In a world that now is some more connected then it was when the original series aired. The trailer lets us know that all is taken into the series and that Mulder fears that is more dangerous than ever because of it. It is also nice to see some old face come back including a certain smoking guy.
The X-Files will be returning in January.

At first you think you are reading your typical espionage comic but very quickly you realize that it is not. We are introduced to a young woman, Elena a young Russian woman along with her partner Miller. Elena is not you typical young woman. Elena is a CIA operative with a gift. Along with Alex Dawson another gifted agent they are out investigate what they believe is a terrorist organization called Yuri. They quickly come to realize that it is not Yuri they are after but someone else.
Elena gift is a telepathic link to electronics. The ability to access email’s and text messages. Alex is strength and agility. Through a series of flash backs we are introduce to Elena and Alex. Showing them grow together as agents and friends. The flash backs are not in depth but enough to give us a basic understanding of the characters.
I got a mixture of a old school Bond film mixed in with a mutant under tone.
Elena is a well written story that right from the start grabs your attention. Writers Darren Pearce and Stu Jennett don’t waste time dropping you into the action. The build up is quick but not rushed. I was lucky enough to get a copy of issue 2 and I am glad I did. I finishes issued 1 I quickly moved on to issue 2.
Stu Jennett co-wrote and penciled the story. There is a bonus having the artist being part of the writing team. The vision between writer and artist can sometimes hit a bump on the road. Elena is dark with some splash of color and I feel it helps with the feel and tone of the book. The book also has the look of a underground book that really works here.
Overall Elena: Divinity Rising is a adventure ride that deserves a read.
I give Elena 4 pops out of 5.
Remember comics are meant to enjoyed. Not destroyed.

Hey gang here is a oldy but a goody. Good old Ozzy look like a real human being here.
So another Dragon Con has come and gone. So thought I post some pictures of some of great Cosplayers. Also some that do it for the simple pleasure.
Sorry no names this time but I am sure you don’t need any. Also all images were found openly on the net.
In the park today we have a trailer for the upcoming movie starring Bill Murray, Zooey Deschanel, Kate Hudson, Danny McBride and Bruce Willis. Directed by Barry Levinson.
I found myself smiling more then laughing when viewing this trailer. It does not give the feeling of straight forward comedy. It has more the feeling of a dramedy. The film does looking interesting but as for going to spend money at the theater, sorry. Hopefully it will make it’s investment back.
