Portal Bound #3-4

A few months ago I mentioned that 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 issues #0-2 of Portal Bound, I was quite excited. So much so, that I’m here with issues #3 and 4.

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...

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...

A Place For My Stuff Part 9

Welcome back to the aforementioned article series that has been on hiatus for a few months. Not by choice so much as necessity. February’s AZ Eventure Con (which I was a promoter of) was awesome way back in February, but it was also a launching date for my Kaiju Epic! Kickstarter. Not long after that I was back on the road again with Aspen Comics and hitting the convention circuit! As I mentioned in Part 8, comics never stop and sometimes you have to choose between comics and other portions of life. So unfortunately I had to step away while I ran Big Dog Ink. But now I have a more regular schedule in life with only a few convention stops left for 2017 and it’s time to get back to talking about creating comics and how exactly I did it

So Critter and Penny for Your Soul were both up and ...
