Deadpool: Dracula’s Gauntlet 2014

Posehn – Duggan – Brown – Koblish

MARVEL

*Note: I haven’t read any other Deadpool comics and the only things I know about Deadpool are from the movie and random things online*

Deadpool has gone to England for some time off to forget about whatever is going on his life, and he suddenly finds himself getting a job from Dracula. He wants Deadpool to retrieve his fiancé from a tomb in Egypt and bring her to England. Of course he runs into trouble every step of the way.

As a fan of vampires and Marvel, I found this comic to be hilarious. Deadpool is a hilarious character and I love how he makes fun of himself, comics, and how he breaks the third wall all the time. I found the plot to be interesting, the myths, history, and pop culture references incorporated in the story to be perfectly selected, and the art to match the story. I really liked the art and coloring done. It matched the feeling perfectly.

My favorite part of the comic was when they visit tombs in Paris. I won’t give away what happened, but it was really well written and I thought it was a great scene.

I give the comic 5/5 stars as it was well-written, the art was perfect, and the humor in it left my husband staring at me like I was crazy.

Summary:
Chrys has been in the Underworld for thousands of years, hidden away by her father, Hades, from all of the other gods. He’s afraid that if someone finds out about her, they will destroy her because of the dichotomous power that she holds, the power of life and death. So she has remained in the Palace of Hades all her life, making very few friends and always bored out of her mind.

Huntley would have never guessed that after he died he would wake up with a beautiful girl standing over him. And that she would be the Dark Lord of the Underworld’s daughter. Yet, for some reason, she keeps him around as her tutor, as if he knows anything about the world. But Huntley knows that all she really wants is a friend; being trapped in the Underworld can get pretty lonely.

That is, until Chrys decides she wants to run away to the human world after a big fight with her mother Persephone. Chrys claims her father is just over reacting and that nothing bad will come of it. There’s no way that the gods will notice she’s there for only a couple of days…right?

2016 ~ What’s to come?

Hi everyone!

I wanted to update everyone as to what the new year will bring! I have a lot of projects I’m currently developing and I can’t wait to share them with you!

A World of Vampires:

I will be finishing up the last three novellas here soon with the third volume paperback available in the spring.

And…..

I will be writing an adventure with most of the vampires in a modern day setting! It’s going to be like an avengers get together where they have to defeat some sort of evil? Who’s gonna be the villain? Well, you will have to find out! Also, there will be extra stories about our vampires in the back of this novel so stay tuned for that! It is scheduled to publish in the fall of 2016.

My Broken Heart:

The last three short stories are currently being written and the paperback collection should also be available in the spring.

Sanshlian Series:

The Journey is currently at the publishers being edited with a spring release. I am also planning on working on the third, and last, book in the series that should be published in the fall/winter. There will also be two preludes for 2017.

Hel’s Labyrinth

At Antik Comics, Ari and I are working hard on finishing up our graphic novel for our kickstarter. We are aiming for a kickstarter in the spring so do check back here in March! We are planning on two graphic novels for the series.

THE NEW SERIES!!!

Daughter of Hades (series name not set in stone):

Get ready for a new series! This series is about Chrys who is the unknown daughter of Hades and Persephone. Her parents have been hiding her in the underworld, not wanting any other god/dess (mainly Zeus) to find out about her as she has the power to control life and death. However, Chrys is sick of living in the underworld and wants to know what Earth is like, what being a teen is like. She takes her tutor, a teen who was her tutor on recent history and modern age, and they sneak to earth and enroll in a high school where Chrys tries to learn what being human is like. However, little does she know that god/desses have spies everywhere and it isn’t long until some figures out what’s going on.

This is scheduled for a late spring release and the second one for a winter release as well.

Tales as Old as Time (series name not set in stone):

I will (hopefully) be releasing one remake of a fairy tale legend a year. Each book in the series will be independent. The first one will be based of Little Red Riding Hood. Details to come! Little Red Riding Hood (Title TBD) will be released in summer 2016.

Pitching to agents!

I will also be pitching some of my books that I have finished, currently working on, and ones to start next year. I’m very excited about some of my new ones I am working on and hope that it will get picked up. Wish me luck as I do so!

 

Be sure to check out this blog and my website www.danihoots.com and www.antikcomics.com for all my published works!

Have a great New Year!

Dani

Vampires around the world are coming forth to remind humans they are not romantic fantasies to be sought, nor are they should that can be redeemed. These are the stories that they must tell.

Her tale is a hard one to tell, with love, loss, and abuse plaguing her past. But she must tell it so that humans know the truth. That the world of the vampire is one of suffering.

This novella is independent. None of the A World of Vampire Series need to be read in order.

But after a couple of drinks on the business trip, can he keep those feelings to himself? And what if the impossible happened and Christoph had those same feelings as well?

Movie Review ~ Star Wars: The Force Awakens

sw-the-force-awakens

Why I didn’t like the new Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens.

Okay, to start off, I grew up on reading Star Wars. I love the books, I love the plot that they developed, the character developments and everything. Even after my favorite character died in the books I still understand why it happened and that it was necessary for the story. That being said, most people think I’m bias of why I didn’t like the movie, but here I am going to say why I didn’t like it comparing it to the books, and for the movie by itself.

<<<<<<<WARNING SPOILER ALERT>>>>>>>
