With a Kickstarter nearing the mid way point, we check out the first two issues of The Saturn Effect: Alpha, a sci-fi series by Chris Moses and Francesco Mazzoli which follows up on the pair’s initial webcomic, The Saturn Effect: Ajax. Can this new comic be a worthy follow up or will it end up lost in space?
Don’t be fooled by the cutesy title, this is not a loveable all ages book about some kind of fluffy woodland creature. This is a slice of cool contemporary crime comics from writer Jed McPherson (Deadbeat, The Show) that is coming soon to Kickstarter and will get you in a bear hug and not let go!
In the beginning was the word, and the word was ‘Directed Panspermia’ – OK, we know that’s two words – but those two words are the concept at the heart of RJ Collins ambitious high concept sci-fi series Arks that mixes creation myth and interstellar space travel to create a story that is out of this world.
With a kickstarter campaign currently in full swing for the oversized collected edition, we check out Samuel George London and Mikael Hankonen’s The Milford Green Saga. Is this series, about a Victorian village bearing witness to an alien Invasion, out of this world?
Every now and then we find a comic which just ticks all the boxes and you can tell it is going to something rather special from the very first page you see of it. The latest to get this weighty accolade is Matt Emmons’ Gardener, which is currently funding on Kickstarter, but what makes this book worth digging up?
We return to the universe of Dylan Klein and Lane Brettschneider’s Starside, where once we checked out their opening journey through its space, now we catch up on the latest instalments of this space opera about a man trying to find his way home.
We take a look at the first three issues of Shark of War, a digitally rendered action adventure about a genetically engineered Shark that becomes America’s greatest weapon. Can this comic make all others leave the waters or is it simply a small fish in a big sea?
We check out the first three issues of Major Holmes and Captain Watson, Jeff Rider, Ismael Canales and Roger Surroca’s reimagining of the great detective and his physician partner. But with new looks, personalities and even a new time period can this new Holmes and Watson beat the game or is this one case too tough to solve?
A glorious mixture of classic spy cliches all set in a medieval/fantasy world, Damsel from D.I.S.T.R.E.S.S. is a new series from Béte Noir’s Andrew Clemson that is well worth rescuing, or rather being rescued by!
Thanks to it’s outlandish title and character filled artwork, Dr Love Wave and The Experiments is an over the top slice of sci-fi surf rock that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
