Molly Danger from Jamal ‘Supergirl’ Igle and Action Lab Comics is one of our favourite new titles in ComiXology’s Guided View section. Mixing the action-packed world of superheroes and giant robots with a coming of age story of a girl who is trying to deal with fame, celebrity and being a 10 year old superhero who has been saving the city of Coopersville for over 20 years! It’s a really refreshing and original read in a saturated market which does a great job of maximising the world of Guided View. It’s also a digital exclusive, funded by Kickstarter, which makes it right up our street, so we contacted creator Jamal Igle to discover more about Molly-world!

Some say he is a force of nature. Others say is a reject of a hormone injected time gone by. The facts are, he’s the most unstoppable cop on the force. This high octane splatterfest will follow BPC and his partner as they battle the notorious Fuster Cluck gang. King Bone Press will bring you a 32 1/3 page one shot comic featuring a tale of the cock with a glock and they are looking for your help to fund it via Kickstarter launched today.
Joe Martino’s The Mighty Titan is a Kickstarter funded superhero spectacular that uses the emotive issue of cancer to make his tales of heroes and villains resonate with a real emotional core. Fresh from the success of issue 1 which we reviewed back in May, issue 2 was successfully funded in just 30 hours and is set to hit the newsstands in August. Keen to find out the secret to crowd sourced comics we got in touch with Joe to ask him all about it and also to give us his own take on the fascinating and very personal journey that brought us The Mighty Titan.
This Kickstarter funded comic from writer Joe Martino takes the emotive subject of cancer and uses it as one of the central premises for a superhero adventure. This first issue of a 5 issue mini series was successfully funded last year and is now available via Martinos’ website, and may sound like a glib or insensitive way to treat such a serious subject, but Martino uses his own experiences as a way to give his book a smart and emotive central core, without wallowing in bleak self-analysis. This makes for a title that should appeal to those affected by cancer and those just in need of an entertaining read and as such is well worth checking out.

Back in March we spoke to George Lentino, publisher of Moonshot Digital Comics, who was setting out his plan to revolutionise the world of digital comics with “innovative, experimental and down-right fun to read comics”. Well the first title, from that stable, Deluge, is about to be released with the team of film-maker turned writer J.D. Oliva and artist Richard Clark at the helm. After hearing about all the great things that George had planned for his new line of digital comics, I got in touch with J.D. to ask him about his inspiration for Deluge and just what exactly the Moonshot Digital experience entailed.
