some thoughts on two of this weeks digital comics from Zenescope Entertainment.
A mother seeking solace with her three children after a recent tragedy signs up for a group hiking and camping tour. But navigating the difficult terrain is the least of the hikers’ worries as the group soon finds they’re being stalked by unseen predators.

A degree of fightback here as the group makes what felt like a final stand against the creatures in the darkness. It seems though, that there is a new plan – the old one wasn’t working anyway! The character moments are very interesting there is some growing up within the group. Some don’t make it, but there still seems to be something about this madness. That has been hinted on throughout the story, but it’s only here it is really noticed by the characters and made flesh – it will be interesting if anything comes out of it all!
The Black Sable #6
The exciting conclusion to this action packed series brings Sable into the deadliest battle yet as enemies surround her on all sides. Victory will bring her the most sought after treasure in the galaxy…defeat will only cost her life.

The final issue gives us a full reveal of the betrayal in the previous issue, and things don’t just look bad for Sable, but also for everybody!
Sable seems like she has a plan (she doesn’t) and things are moving to the Mar homeworld. It’s all been building up to this. I like that the president is call ‘Speck’ as Sable’s response to him is especially belittling!
Part of Sable’s plan looks like it will help her cause and cause trouble for the Corporation, so if she makes it….
the conclusion was especially gratifying, and I hope we see more of Sable and her crew as the status quo has been changed, and I would like to see more!
