Freeway Fighter #1

Writer: Andi Ewington
Artist/Ink: Simon Coleby
Color: Len O’Grady
Lettering: Jim Campbell

After the world is ravaged by a deadly virus, a professional racecar driver-turned-scavenger struggles to survive the day to day harshness of a violent and desperate post-apocalyptic world.

Based on the 1985 Fighting Fantasy work of the same name, and including a special introduction by the original author, Freeway Fighter taps into the dingy feel of a Mad Max-esque dystopian world. Simon Coleby translates this quite well to the page, while Len O’Grady’s colors compliment the wasteland scenery with an atmosphere filth and despair.

The story transitions in a broad stroke from past to present, but this reviewer feels that, while this is only the initial setup of a larger picture, the tale was a little ...

Interview with Joamette Gil Power & Magic Anthology

This is a sort of a multi part question: what led you to make this book? Why make it as an anthology, and what led you to the theme of “magic” for the book?

I made Power & Magic for a lot of reasons. I decided to become a comics publisher to publish what I want to read and pay people what I, as a creator, want to be paid. “Fantasy comics about queer women of color” is, generally speaking, what I want to see more of in the comics scene, so it made sense for the very first thing I published to be purely that. As for the anthology format, that’s just a really smart way to go as a beginning publisher for a number of reasons, not least of which is building a working relationship with many creators at once.

What got you into making comics in the first place?

Haha, I’m one of those infidels who ...

Zombie Tramp Vol 11 Issue #35

Janey’s been on the road desperately searching for Morning, the little redhead of the dead, but she’s not the only one. Where did Morning run off to? What does she know about the Kaiju Queen? And who else is looking for the ginger-haired ghost child? Find out in this issue of Zombie Tramp!

A lot has been going on for supporting characters while Janey has been recovering underground. Xula was the focus of the last couple issues with more Kaiju Queen content, leaving us with a cliffhanger there. It’s been a while, but it’s time to see Morning again as we enter Zombie Tramp issue 35.

Shifting attention to the young but powerful girl Morning, we follow her current situation in Iowa as a bullied orphan...
