Lawless: Welcome to Badrock

BRINGING LAW TO THE LAWLESS!

A FRONTIER TOWN IN THE ASS-END OF NOWHERE ON A FRONTIER PLANET IN THE ASS-END OF THE GALAXY

Welcome to Badrock, where the synthol flows freely, fights break out daily and scavengers bicker over pieces of scrap found in the war-scarred badlands. Good thing they have a new Colonial Marshall, no-nonsense Metta Lawless, to keep the peace!

Tensions between Meks, Muties, Uplifts and Humans are rife and only she can bring the change that Badrock needs. But for the local branch of ruthless inter-galactic hypercorp, Munce Inc. change is bad for business… How far will they go to protect their investments?

Ruin of Thieves: A Brigand’s Story #1


Writer: Ram V

Artist: Sumit Kumar, ROSH

Letterer: Aditya Bidikar

Publisher: Action Lab Comics

Synopsis: Released from Death Row into the service of the Temarian Inquisition, the Brigands, led by Stilian “Blackheart” Desault, are expected to steal The Myros Pendulum. On the night of the Myros Comet, the heroes find themselves trying to keep their heads low and hope they can continue on their quest without getting caught.

Review: If  Ruin of Thieves: A Brigands Story was a movie, it would begin with a Star Wars  type of introduction. This one page introduction to the graphic novel sets the stage for the adventure that is to follow. With the feeling and look of a fantasy sword and dagger type of movie, the story will be a thrill to those who love reading fantasy novels...

Portal Bound #0-2

One of my more recent comic discoveries is Aspen Comics. (Which is fairly embarrassing, since we often review them here at Geek-o-Rama.) This year marks their 15th anniversary and they show no sign of slowing down. So when the opportunity to review their newest title, Portal Bound, I was quite excited.

Portal Bound takes us into a new world, or more accurately two new worlds. One, is the earth as we know it, as seen through the eyes of a young teenage boy, Eli. Eli is hardly hero material, he’s quiet, nerdy, and as unassuming as a teen can get. The second is Havos. In theory, Havos and Earth are the same, like two sides of a coin. The colours are wrong, the technology is wrong, and the people are wrong, but they remain inexorably bound together...

Kickstarter/Indiegogo Spotlight: Touching Evil Vol. 2

Kickstarter Spotlight - Geek-O-Rama - Touching Evil Comic

For those new to this award-winning supernatural thriller, the premise is simple: there is a curse that grants its bearers immortality and the power to kill people with a mere touch of the hand…if the person is evil. Sounds great, except for one little catch: the souls you kill live on in a prison inside your head. As if that wasn’t bad enough, what if the person you kill happens to be someone you care about? And what defines evil anyway?

In volume one we followed Ada Mansfield: a single mom and hard working attorney who stumbled upon the curse and had her whole life turned upside down as she learned who her friends and enemies were…the hard way.  Now in volume two she discovers there may be someone who can break the curse once and for all, but it comes at a price...
