Comments: This comic has a super team called the Guardians and they are a copy of the Justice League. They have an assassin Deadeye who is a copy of Deadshot. Marcus Greenberg the guy who cleans up after super-heroes he is original.
These ‘super-heroes’ are not like most that you have seen.
Marcus Greenberg has no conscious.
The art is nothing special. The super-heroes are copies, not originals.
This is definitely not your ordinary super-hero comic as the super-heroes and villains go after each other. Spartan the most powerful Guardian may be its weakest link. Things happen though and one thinks leads to another and Spartan is no longer a problem.
Spartan may be this world’s version of Superman but he is not like Superman. These heroes are pale comparisons and Marcus Greenberg is the one who gets to make them shine brightly even when they do not.

Comments: Lila, Janey, and Katie are all armed and dangerous. These ladies are usually so sexy but here that is not shown all at all. Having them fighting Star Wars type Tie-Fighters is an interesting touch.
Janey in her spirit form is nude so we get a peek at some T&A. Nice butt shot just before that of Janey and Katie’s butts.
Inside this computer, a world to defeat the enemy Zombie Queen takes over Vampblade’s body. Yes its, a two for one as she attacks.
The three hot babes do manage to work together without killing each other. This though is the end of this team-up for now. There are sure to be more though.

Romance is in the air and water here. Raven, Sunshine, and Ximena how will this play out? Also, each issue tells you a little more about the crew and as you learn more you care more.
Romance and action on the high seas will have you enjoying this adventure.

RICH INTERVIEWS: Adam Lance Garcia Writer “Sons of Fire Vol. 1”

First Comics News - Sat, 12/09/2017 - 20:13

First Comics News: How did you get into writing comics?

Adam Lance Garcia: I grew up reading comics, so it was only natural that I spent a good section of my youth writing and drawing comics on printer paper when I really should have been paying attention to my school work.
It wasn’t until I connected with my friend Ben Granoff (who is a very talented artist and storyteller in his own right) that I was able to dip my toes into writing comics professionally. He brought me in on a project he was working on with artist Greg Mitchell Mayer and I took to it like a fish to water.

1st: What was your first published comic and how did it feel to hold it in your hands?

Adam: Nick Adrian: Security Guard is my first published comic. It was a small run, self-published comic based on my short film of the same name. It answered the life-long question: “What if Dirty Harry was a security guard at the Gap?” Ben did layouts, and Greg did the art. We originally planned it to be a 4-part story, and maybe one day I’ll get the chance to finish it.
But, no matter the format—prose or comic, or even the number of stories published—it never stops being surreal holding something you wrote in your hands. Writing is a very solitary experience, putting these weird, amorphous ideas floating around in your head into words and suddenly they exist in this three-dimensional form in your hands.
That doesn’t even begin to describe the moment when you realize other people are going to be reading your words and their going have those weird, amorphous ideas floating around in their heads.

1st: What is the story in “Sons of Fire Vol. 1”?

Adam: Thirty years ago, the town of Black Rock was nearly destroyed by a fire. The arsonist, teenager Jacob Crowe, has kept the truth behind the blaze a secret… until now.
The lone survivor of a fire that took his brother and father, Jacob is unable to forgive himself for leaving his family to die. It is only when he discovers his friend Andrew Danner is something more than human that Jacob sees a way toward redemption. But for Andrew, the life of hero risks exposing his secrets to the world, leading him to question his humanity.
Together, Andrew and Jacob will begin a dark journey that leads them from the boys they are, to the men they will become; revealing that the difference between heroes and villains are the lines you’re willing to cross.

1st: Why will we care about what happens with Jacob Crowe?

Adam: Jacob is like so many of us who want to be a hero, but is still painfully human.

1st: Who will be some of the supporting characters in “Sons of Fire Vol. 1”?

Adam: Our principle cast (so far) is Andrew Danner, who is something more than human; Sarah Nickles, Andrew’s girlfriend; Michelle Crowe, Jacob’s mother, and Quentin “Tin” Cobb, the town’s sheriff and Michelle’s lover; Paul Ioannides, a local thug who is after Jacob.

1st: What is the best selling point for “Sons of Fire Vol. 1”?

Adam: Elevator pitch: It’s the origin of Superman by way of Stranger Things.

1st: What is it about the character Green Lama that draws readers to him?

Adam: For me, it’s that his heroism is centered on his faith in others. He’s not driven by revenge, anger, or a personal tragedy. Rather it’s his belief that by helping others, by sacrificing his own enlightenment, others will follow and make the world a better place.

1st: Would you like to meet the Green Lama if you could for real?

Adam: Yes, mostly so I could apologize for what I’ve put him through these last few years.

1st: Do you have any ideas for other comics of your own creation?

Adam: Absolutely. Heidi and I have talked about what we want to do next, but we need to finish Sons of Fire first!

1st: What do you do at the Radio Room audio play series?

Adam: I’m a writer-producer alongside my partner Steele Filipek. That means I’m not only writing scripts, I’m also casting and paying actors, editing the audio and occasionally directing. Steele handles most of the directing because he’s simply a better director. We tend to trade off writing duties, with one acting as the other’s script editor.
Radio Room has been an incredibly satisfying creative experience, because not only do Steele and I force each other to be better writers, there is also this huge freedom in telling a story aurally. Steele’s series Queens of the Sapphire Sea is set in pre-World War 2 Southern France and features high flying air battles; my series Smoke Without Flame takes place in a whole different reality; our Green Lama audio-plays will take place in 1947 New York. Much like with comic books, we can tell these wild, absurd stories and are never restricted by budgets, casting, locations, special effects in the way film or TV show are.

1st: How do you improve your writing skills?

Adam: By writing and reading every single day. The best thing I can tell any writer is to make sure you read things outside your comfort zone. If you like sci-fi, read non-fiction. If you’re a man, read female writers. If you’re white, read stories written by minorities. The wider your vision, the more nuanced your writing will become.

1st: Which comic book that you have not worked on would you most like to?

Adam: Shazam is my dad’s favorite hero, and I just love to tell a story where the ideals found in youth can push back against the moral complexity of the world.
I am a huge Doctor Who fan, I’d love the chance to write stories for Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor for Titan, or maybe even Paul McGann’s 8th Doctor tale.
It’s also no secret that I want to write a Star Wars story. The new films have opened up so much possibility for the characters. Luke’s journey after Return of the Jedi is a story I want to tell.
And I would kill to write a Superman comic—Black artist Jamal Igle and I came up with a whole pitch via Twitter using the hashtag #SupermanHope. Check it out. I think it’s pretty snazzy.

1st: Who has helped your comic book career the most?

Adam: Heidi. She keeps inspiring me with my work.

1st: What would you like to say to the fans of your work?

Adam: Thank you. Seriously, thank you.

KOT AND ŽEŽELJ’S DAYS OF HATE ATTACKS WITH SHARP AND RELEVANT GENRE THRILLS

First Comics News - Sat, 12/09/2017 - 09:01

PORTLAND, OR, 12/08/2017 — Bestselling writer Aleš Kot (ZERO, GENERATION GONE) teams up with artist Danijel Žeželj (STARVE) and Eisner-winning colorist Jordie Bellaire (REDLANDS, PRETTY DEADLY) for an all new maxi-series in the gritty American thriller tragedy DAYS OF HATE.

DAYS OF HATE is set in The United States of America in 2022. The loss that ripped two of its main protagonists apart drove one into the arms of the police state and the other towards a guerrilla war against the white supremacy. Now they meet again, on the opposing sides—and all hell has broken loose.

“Days of Hate is all about the characters. It’s about them living in a country that is falling apart. It’s about love, hate, war, tragedy, and layers of intrigue and double-crossing,” said Kot. “It’s about the things people do to survive and to live—and about killing Nazis.”

DAYS OF HATE #1 (Diamond Code NOV170638) hits stores on Wednesday, January 17th. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, December 18th.

The art is simple in black and white. It works well with this story.
The forest creature has followed Piper and her sister. You can feel the suspense slowly building. It is taking its time so the story can focus on the sisters and their strained relationship.
Piper and Frances are stranded beside a forest. This can not be good.

Max Bemis and Michael Dialynas Invite You to Witness Lucy Dreaming

First Comics News - Sat, 12/09/2017 - 01:40

A coming-of-age fantasy/sci-fi adventure about living your dreams—literally—debuts March 2018 Lucy Dreaming main cover by Michael Dialynas

LOS ANGELES, CALIF. (December 8, 2017) – BOOM! Studios is pleased to announce LUCY DREAMING, a new limited series debuting March 2018 from Say Anything frontman Max Bemis (Moon Knight, Polarity) and GLAAD Award-winning artist Michael Dialynas (The Woods, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) about a young girl who goes to sleep every night and becomes the hero of all of her favorite stories, living out grand adventures and learning more about the reality she lives in than she could ever learn in her waking life.

“I wanted to create a comic book I could give to my daughter when she’s old enough to read,” said Bemis. “Plus, as a kid, I remember enjoying Star Wars, The Goonies, and Indiana Jones—things that were larger-than-life adventures. I wanted to do something like that.”

Lucy is a grumpy, emotive, full-of-life, 13-year-old girl who keeps waking up in the shoes of various archetypal female heroes. One night she’ll wake up as a space princess turned rebel leader, another night she’ll be a reluctant heroine who becomes the symbolic motivation for an entire country to revolt. But as fantastic as these “dreams” are, they carry the same life-and-death stakes as if Lucy was awake in real life. The reason why all this is happening to her, though, is a secret for now.

“I don’t want to spoil why it happens,” Bemis said. “But I will say it’s a confusing time for Lucy. She’s on the cusp of young adulthood and doesn’t feel like she fits in. She looks down on the hypocrisy she sees surrounding her so she’s escaped into the world of fiction.”

BOOM! Studios published Bemis’ first original comics work, Polarity, in 2013, followed by Evil Empire and Oh, Killstrike. With artist Michael Dialynas, the publisher recently published the conclusion to his award-winning, long-running series, The Woods, with writer James Tynion IV.

“After drawing a four-year long YA series on a murderous planet in a galaxy far far away, LUCY DREAMING seemed like a perfect opportunity to stretch my muscles on a fun story involving multiple universes and different genres,” said Dialynas. “The fact that I’ll get to play around with a new style AND build up a few new worlds is very exciting for me!”

LUCY DREAMING #1 will have a cover illustrated by interior artist Michael Dialynas. Print copies will be available for sale March 2018 at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one) or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers like comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the BOOM! Studios app.

“Over the past few years, Max has proven himself to be one of the most exciting new voices in comics, with the writing chops to back it up,” said Eric Harburn, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Brought to life by Mike’s immense, emotive talents, LUCY DREAMING is fun, dark, aspirational, and thought-provoking.”

LUCY DREAMING is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ eponymous imprint, home to a world-class group of licensed comic book series and ambitious original series, including Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, WWE, Big Trouble in Little China, Victor LaValle’s Destroyer, Mech Cadet Yu, Grass Kings, and Klaus.

Comments: The write up before the comic starts is a much needed to fill the reader in on what is going on. This will help you out a lot.
Argent is in a high stakes poker game playing against a most unusual group. They are not playing for money but prizes worth so much more. The finish to this game is not done to bring out the excitement of winning. It just ends.
There is excitement is a high-speed car chase. Lots is happening during it. There are some nice excited facial expressions.
The chase in the sky is exciting as well. Plus the use of alien tech adds to it.
The scenery and tech illustrated here will remind you of Blade Runner. Here though it is Argent after an item that is the driving force of the story.

JEZ'(RE): I HATE FAIRYLAND

First Comics News - Fri, 12/08/2017 - 04:29

So, I was a bit… dramatic during my last post…

But, I started reading I HATE FAIRYLAND that night and it perked me up a little.

It’s FABULOUS!

Like, OMG! <3

It’s been so long since I’ve read something that really amused me.

I was a total cunt last week to a dear friend and karma was really being a bitch…

 

Then, right after I read it, my computer stopped charging—karma.

I seriously thought about killing myself.

Anyway, another friend let me use his spare machine but the screen is all cracked and it was doing crazy things and I had to just not think about my machine for the moment.

Then, I apologized last night and we talked for five hours, came home to a phone call about an interview—which I had today, got the job and worked a shift!—came home tonight ANNNNNND got my computer to work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ugh. I’m so happy! HAPPY! HAPPY! HAPPY!

So happy, that I’m writing a review.

I also just watched Spawn again—great movie—love you, NETFLIX!

Sorry—not sorry—I’m spazing…

Anyway…

I hate fairyland.

LOVES IT! <3<3<3

Why?

I’m dying XD

So, little Miss Gertrude gets sucked into fairyland on a magical quest which is suppose to the most magical experience a child could ever have—however, she get’s stuck on the mission and develops a loathing for her gumballs and rainbows prison.

Despite Gertrude being an asshole, you kind of feel sorry for her—I mean, it wasn’t her fault she was there in the first place—but, she makes some really bad decisions along the way which forces her to make more bad decisions.

I can relate…

Which forces fairyland to defend itself.

But, our dear Gurttie is quite ready to die.

THANKS FOR THE GOOD TIME, GUYS <3

 

HAPPY NERDING : ) and SUPPORT INDIE <3

Vampironica’s out for blood as a new Archie Horror series launches this March from Greg & Megan Smallwood

First Comics News - Thu, 12/07/2017 - 22:23

Greg and Megan Smallwood are bringing a new terror to the streets of Riverdale as Veronica Lodge is bitten by a centuries-old vampire in a new Archie Horror series launching this March – VAMPIRONICA.

After being turned, will Veronica’s new-found thirst for blood turn Riverdale into a haven for the undead or will she put an end to the vampire threat herself? The team of Greg (co-writer, artist) and Megan Smallwood (co-writer) and letterer Jack Morelli are set to turn Riverdale red in the latest twisted take on the classic Archie Comics characters.

“Fans can rest assured that we’ll be staying faithful to the core of these characters,” said co-writer Greg Smallwood. “It was very important to Megan and I that Vampironica be the same Veronica that we all know and love, only now with fangs.”

“Greg and I were both very interested in exploring the concept of a vampire Veronica without getting rid of what makes Veronica such a special character,” said co-writer Megan Smallwood. “Ironically, Vampironica humanizes Veronica in a way that only horror can. Becoming a vampire is a humbling experience for her and she’s forced to open up and expose a little vulnerability.”

The new series will explore how Veronica adapts to her new place as one of Riverdale’s freshest members of the undead while drawing influence from classic horror films.

“I’d say that our biggest influences are American Werewolf in London and Fright Night. Both films can be quite horrific but there’s also a lot of strong characterization and humor to them,” said Greg. “I think horror works best with a small dose of comedy for levity so we’ve used the same formula on Vampironica.”

“Veronica Lodge is not the kind of girl to join any ranks, let alone vampire ranks. True to form, Veronica instead relies on her own gut-instincts,” said Megan. They haven’t let her down in life and they won’t let her down as she navigates the surreal world of the undead.”

VAMPIRONICA #1 launches in comic shops and on digital platforms March 14, 2018 and features variant covers by Francesco Francavilla, Audrey Mok, Djibril Morrissette-Phan and Marguerite Sauvage.
