DayBlack by Keef Cross / Rosarium Publishing – Indie Comic Review

There are many books, that I’d like to see as a live action show, webseries etc…and DayBlack is definitely worthy! The book series by Keef Cross/Rosarium Publishing, centers around a former slave and vampire named Merce who lives in small, modern town in Georgia called DayBlack. The name itself makes, for a perfect setting for Merce (you must read to understand why).

Merce’s lifestyle as a tattoo artist and his eating habits make him a very interesting character. I would love to go into details about the 3 issues I’ve read, but that would spoil the suprises. Courtesy of Keef Cross, the art visuals are amazing! The unique, b&w noir style; minimum color with the exceptioin of splashes/touches of red is a storytelling element that enhances the project.

Keef Cross and Rosarium Publishing have a great concept and I look forward to learning more about Merce and DayBlack. Support Indie Creators and Their Projects! Stay tuned and learn more about Planet Random’s upcoming releases here:

Punx Of Rage – Indie Comic Book Review

punx

Joe Currie’s Strictly Underground Comics has a nice roster of characters and this offering concentrates on Punx Of Rage. The young, action heroes called JawBreakahs, live in and protect Rage City. Using their martial art and skateboarding skills, they stand up to a group of street thugs that are harassing a young woman on a Summer day. This leads to a greater confrontation that sees the arrival of Dodger, the massive leader of the group and a certified, melee hero. Justice is about to be served with beat-downs! I can tell Joe really enjoys writing about the characters. There is a nice backstory peek of who I believe is the main villain.

I enjoyed the art (lines & colors), as well. Joe has included some bonus pin-up art. Highlighted artists include; Stanley Weaver, Glyph Sputnik and Corey Greene. I can’t wait to read Punx Of Rage #2!  Stay tuned for Strictly Underground Comic’s upcoming releases!  Support Indie Creators and Their Projects! Learn more about Strictly Underground Comics here:

Urban Myth: The Gifting – Indie Comic Book Review

Planet Random presents Urban Myth: The Gifting by Raymond Ayala & Images by Paulo Barrios

I’m proud to say, (check the credits), that I am a Kickstarter Backer of Urban Myth: The Gifting the Graphic Novel project by Creator/Publisher Raymond Ayala / Planet Random. The Gifting follows a group of youth, empowered with powers and talents, who become New Olympians in a modern, urban setting. This 1st book and Kickstarter Special, did not disappoint with the nonstop action; quick peeks into each individual’s day as they are affected by Nathaniel / Alpha’s presence, that mysteriously gives them powers.

The art is by Paulo Barrios and colors by Luis Guerrero, Eddy Swan and Aaron James. The cover is a favorite of mine!  I wish there was more immediate insight into the source of the Power, but Raymond Ayala’s story is rich with new characters/heroes; Alpha, Mars, Flame, Merc, Victory and Urbanite.  Support Indie Creators and Their Projects!
