Kickstarter/Indiegogo Spotlight: Ten2Midnight #1

Kickstarter - Ten2Midnight

It all began in the Eleventh Hour when the sun blotted out and the Earth was plunged into darkness. For many, this was the beginning of the End of Times.

Euthanauts #1

Writer: Tini Howard
Artist: Nick Robles
Letters: Aditya Bidikar
Publisher: IDW

There was something special about the woman at the restaurant. Thalia did not know what it was, other than that she was obviously terminally ill, but that wasn’t it. No, there was something more to it, but Thalia could not put her finger on it. When Mercy Wolfe followed her into the restaurant bathroom, Thalia had no idea her whole world was about to change.

Letterer: Troy Peteri

Publisher: Image Comics, Inc.

Review:  The first glance at the artwork made me think of the dark boldness that I have become accustomed to seeing in more serious or horror comics. That, mixed with a political beginning and I confess that I had my doubts for a few seconds. But, only a few seconds...
