The ARK book 1In the epic sci-fi graphic novel ARK, from writer Peter Dabbene and Arcana Comics a crew of humans and ‘meta-humans’ (human/animal/plant hybrids) discover their fate is not as they thought when a mysterious message from earth reveals the true nature of the mission to their stars is not as they first seemed. But that’s not all, add in some socio-politcal unrest and a good old fashioned ‘whodunnit’ plot and ARK is a brilliant throwback to the world of classic 70s sci-fi like Silent Runnings and Battlestar Galactica. Keen to find out more about the book and the inspirations behind the weird and wonderful creatures on board the ARK we contacted Peter to get the lowdown.

Upgrade Soul is the new digital comics project from artist Ezra Claytan Daniels, developer Erik Loyer and composer Alexis Gideon. It’s a fantastic sci-fi graphic novel in app form with it’s own unique audio soundtrack it tells the story of aging couple, Hank and Molly Nonnar who are given the chance to extend their lives by upgrading their souls. But all is not as simple as it might seem and the events play out with exquisite, highly detailed artwork from writer/artist Daniels and moody atmospheric music from Gideon. It’s so much more than just a page turner though with a fantastically readable user interface and motion graphic elements within each page that help it really come to life. Upgrade Soul is an absolute gem of a title, so we got in touch with Ezra, Erik and Alexis to find out just how this fantastic project came into being.
