The Awakened #1 – Review

Issue: The Awakened #1
Writer: Ivan James
Artist: Tim Jensen
Release Date: 2012

“Gabe had a late night craving for some Taco Stix®. His usual order was a sack of Taco Stix® and a large Cola Pop® with lite ice. So he was quite surprised when the universe added a hip hop spell caster and a demon who wants to kill him as well. He should have realized beforehand that satisfying his hunger meant enlisting in an adventure of biblical proportions. He probably would have eaten somewhere else…”

Dying Breath: 4.0 out of 5
So what can really go wrong with ordering some Taco Stix®? Apparently a lot, and The Awakened is here to explore just that. Let’s start off simply with the colors, man do they POP off of every single page. I guess in the near future this creative team thinks we are going to be all neon, and well it makes this book so visually attractive. Jensen’s cast looks amazing from panel to panel. I really enjoy the look of the demons, as they come across as almost a half vampire half crazy albino. There are some scenes where things did get a little muddied up, but overall this book looks great. The story was an action packed horror/hero blast that was like a straight punch to the face. James’ writing never slowed down, and it left me on the edge of my seat throughout. I honestly was okay with how the issue ended, because it left me wanting more. So the actual writeup of what is taking place, or the back story, was just icing on the cake (it came at the end of the issue). On every level this book was a winner. It captured my attention and ran with it for a good 20 minutes. I can not wait to see what comes next, lets just hope that issue gets here soon.

Artwork: 4.0 out of 5 • Story: 4.0 out of 5

Support @MichaelMoreci and the Reincar(Nate) Graphic Novel

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

What’s this all about?

Reincar(Nate) is a 102-page, full-color graphic novel that tells the story of Nate McCoy, a well-meaning, down on his luck P.I. who has a special ability–he can see and interact with past versions of himself. The people he reincarnated from. With the help of Jameson (a Wild West lawman) and Alan (a 1960s-era hitman), Nate works to solve his latest case, one that digs straight to the heart of the city’s criminal underworld.

If you’re a fan of stylized, character-driven noir in the vein of Chew or Terriers, you’ll find a lot to like in Reincar(Nate).

And you are…

I’m Michael Moreci, writer and co-creator of Reincar(Nate)! You may be familiar with my series Hoax Hunters from Image Comics.

Why Kickstarter?

Work on Reincar(Nate) has been a labor of love for everyone involved. Keith Burns (the book’s artist) and I began this project over two years ago and are absolutely thrilled to be nearing completion. The book will be finished this summer (likely in June) and will be ready to ship soon after. We’re fortunate to have a supportive publisher in Viper Comics (Dead @ 17, The Middleman) who will be releasing the book digitally to coincide with our print release. Even with Reincar(Nate) being widely available on digital platforms, Keith and I believe so much in the book that we want to see it in print, hence the Kickstarter drive.

Money raised will go to printing the book, shipping it, and funding the creative team–which includes Chris Beckett on colors and Jim Campbell handing letter duties–while they focus on wrapping the book up to the best of their abilities. No one is getting rich; it’s just enough to pay some bills and allow for the freedom to get the book done.

What do I get?

Anything above the $5 digital level will score you a complete graphic novel–this isn’t a volume in a series or something that will be delivered in installments. You get a full story, start to finish. And, there’s lots of cool incentives, from the behind-the-scenes digital packet to an opportunity to actually be illustrated in the book. You can star in a comic!

For an extended look at Reincar(Nate), check out this nine-page preview:

When will the book ship?

Our ambition is to have the book debut at San Diego Comic Con, but that’s still to be determined. Either way, the book will ship in August!

Please add an extra $5 for all international orders.

Thank you for your support and for in helping to make Reincar(Nate) possible!

Smallville returns for Season 11

DC Comics announced Thursday that Smallville would return for Season 11 in comic book form. Smallville Season 11 is a digital/print hybrid comic written by Bryan Q. Miller with art by Pere Perez. The first issue will be downloadable April 13th with the comic available in your local comic book store on May 1st, 2012.

From DC the Source:

Smallville Fans Rejoice! New Comic Book Series, SMALLVILLE SEASON 11, to Pick Up Where Show Left Off

Fans of the smash-hit TV series Smallville haven’t had much to cheer about since the show ended its critically acclaimed 10-year run on The CW last May. That’s all going to change with the upcoming new comic book series from DC Entertainment: SMALLVILLE SEASON 11. Written by former Smallville show scribe Bryan Q. Miller, the new digital first series will be published digitally on April 13, 2012, with new digital chapters released weekly thereafter. Additionally, the online chapters will be offered in a print periodical, along with an episode guide to the hit television series, with the first print issue released on May 16.

The new comic book series picks-up where the show left off (with Clark officially now as Superman!) and features other fan-favorite characters including Oliver Queen/Green Arrow, Chloe Sullivan-Queen, Lois Lane, Lex Luthor, and General Lane. The book features an all-star creative team – in addition to Miller, SMALLVILLE SEASON 11 creators include print cover artist Gary Frank (SUPERMAN SECRET ORIGIN), digital cover artist Cat Staggs and interiors by Pere Perez (BATGIRL).

“Six months after Clark Kent donned the cape and took to the skies to save Earth from Apokolips… enter Season 11!” enthuses Miller. “New allies abound! New enemies afoot! And old friends return where they’re least expected! Pere and colorist Chris Beckett have done a fantastic job of capturing the look of the show and the players, and Gary and Cat are knocking it out of the park on covers. I couldn’t be more excited to help give seasoned viewers and new readers an all-access pass to Clark’s first year in the cape.”

Avengers vs X-Men #1 7-page preview! (It’s Coming?! No, it’s finally Here!)

For months Marvel has set the internet on ablaze with up-coming “Avengers vs X-Men” interviews, covers and promo art. Finally, Marvel has unveiled a seven page preview of issue #1!

If you’re an Age of Apocalypse junkie, this builds on the alternate universe’s mythology is fascinating and troubling ways.
