3MY Round-Up: Is This The Way?
A Busy Week Over and updates from 3 Million Years
In The Beginning
Hello, and welcome to the latest round-up of the last two weeks on 3 Million Years. It’s been a busy and fun week - both in terms of comics and my day job. I’ve had various IT issues that have caused my working day to be manic, but I got out the other end, and things seem to be working now.
I’ve been enjoying The Mandalorian on Disney+, and it has a great SciFi/Western feel. Wednesdays are good now, with The Bad Batch picking up and building on its story, and things seem to be building for Mando! 1

From Simon Russell is Madeleine - 96 pages of memories about life and comics. 28 writers. An old-school fanzine in a book from fans and pros in the comic world.
Helga Frankenstien continues from Jon A Short - with monsters and action!
I had to get the catch-up issues of Bust by Dave Cook, but I’m glad I did - one more issue to go!
And from TPub (with some of my praise on the back) is Amputation Capital - a clever look at celebrity and social media.
Coming from TPub is a new graphic novel. Tuned looks fantastic, and I was lucky enough to have an advance review.
There’s an untrustworthy review of Nemesis: Reloaded #3 from Image Comics to check out. Also by Mark Millar is the latest issue of The Magic Order. I mentioned it above, but there is also a review of the new series Dead Romans.
We get the finish to a story arc and the beginning of something new for Van Helsing from Zenescope Entertainment. We also have the latest adventure for Belle and the latest issue of the Phoenix Files mini-series.
There are two progs of 2000 AD from Rebellion to work through as well. A fantastic mix from this anthology comic.
Live on Kickstarter is the latest issue of Tales From The Interface - I had a chance to have a look at this new issue.
There’s a lot of Turtle action from IDW Publishing - with The Last Ronin, The Armageddon Game and the main TMNT series.
Coming to Kickstarter in April is The Berg. An excellent read, with a mention of my home town as well!
From Source Point Press is Etheres - this is a fantastic one-shot with a special story inside and amazing art.
I’m still holding out hope for a live-action Hondo though!
