LONGTIME CHICAGO BEAR ISRAEL IDONIJE TO DEBUT HIS COMIC BOOK “THE PROTECTORS” AT CHICAGO’S C2E2

 Longtime Chicago Bears defensive end Israel Idonije knows a
lot about heroics on the football field. Now he’s bringing that sense of
heroism to his first comic project, titled The Protectors, and he has the acclaimed creative team of writer Ron Marz and artist Bart Sears with him.
C2E2, held at Chicago’s McCormick Place April 26-28, will mark the official release of the limited edition The Protectors issue

The Secret Life of Crows

I love a skillfully drawn, lovingly written comic book. That’s the long and the short of it.  Oh, expand? Happy to!

What can be said about The Secret Life of Crows that hasn’t already been said? Oh, that’s right: everything, because
this was an incredibly unique bit of fiction!  I haven’t seen a book
like this come into existence in a long time.  The fact is, this review
is a bit behind because once I got it and read it, I needed to digest
what I had read.  Then I left the book alone for a few weeks, although
it was always in the recesses of my mind.  Once I felt I was ready, I
tackled it again and it was like a second culinary delight for my eyes
and mind.

The book was created, drawn, and colored by the amazingly talented Nei Ruffino.
I’ve been a huge fan of Nei’s since I “disc...

Kickstarter of the Week: MockTales: The Nexus Earth Presents

Hello everyone! This is Greg Scott Bailey. MockTales will be getting its “kickstart” with our short story book; MockTales: Nexus Earth Presents #1.

Cover Line Art

What we’re looking to fund here is payment for the artists involved as well as the initial print run for the 2013 convention season. That’s it! And that is why we’re only asking for $2500 for this first-round project.

I want to bring everyone into the Nexus Earth Universe of MockTales by starting out with four stories of random characters and places in this new world for issue #1. This book will be mostly black and white/grey-tone with color being added only if production time allows. Then, every three months, I will be releasing another issue with even more characters and stories...

Jet Girl

From the unhinged, yet lucid mind of Justin lee Fox and the cunning,
contemporary art style of Jacob Crippen comes the action adventure
Graphic Novel, “JET GIRL”!

This February, brace yourself for a
new espionage/sci-fi extravaganza. JUSTIN FOX’S JET GIRL, holds true to
the 30’s silver screen serial with a modern feel and pop culture
attitude. Dive head first into this full colored 80-page experience.

The project of JUSTIN FOX’S JET GIRL was originally written as 3
one-shots that correlated with one another but were separate adventures
in themselves. The first chapter follows Audey/Jet Girl, as she is sent
to destroy the Lunar Socialist’s moon base. There, she confronts Junior
Hitler, who is a failed clone of the Tyrant Dictator, and his nursemaid
Ilsa, who was suppose to be the clone’s ...
