Kickstarter Spotlight – LADY DEATH: APOCALYPTIC ABYSS #1

I admit that as a teenager during the 90s I enjoyed what was called the “Bad Girls” trend in comics.

There was Everette Hartsoe’s Razor – https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/everettehartsoe/everette-hartsoes-razor-scars-graphic-novel

There was Joseph Michael Linsner’s Cry for Dawn –

Vampirella came back from the 1970s.  Witchblade was leader of the pack from a whole host of bad girls from Image.

Billy Tucci’s indie hit, Shi also came out during this craze

A big one that came out during those grim and gritty times was Brian Pulido’s Lady Death

Born from Brian’s comic Evil Ernie and part of the Chaos Comics brand, Lady Death was a symbol of 90’s comics...

Night’s Dominion: Season Two #1+2

The Cult of Uhlume is no more, and the city of Umber nurses its wounds, as do the reluctant heroes who saved it. Trauma and tragedy have left their mark on Emerane, the lowly barmaid. But when Asps target the city’s Alderman, as well as its champion, the Furie, she finds herself donning the mantle of the Night once again, and coming to their defense – whether she’s ready or not.

After rescuing the city Alderman from assassination, Emerane takes him to her tenement for refuge, only to find the Furie near death from a poisoned arrow. It seems the House of Asps intend to eliminate Umber’s only defenders of justice. But to what end, and at whose command, Emerane must find out. What she doesn’t yet realize is that, as the Night, she is their final target...

Kill Them All

The new gonzo graphic novel love letter to 90s action movies by Eisner-nominated cartoonist Kyle Starks (Sexcastle, Rick and Morty). A betrayed murderess wants revenge. A hard drinking former cop wants his job back. For either to get what they want, they’re going to have to fight their way through fifteen flights of criminals, assassins, drug lords, murderers, yup, even accountants, and… KILL. THEM. ALL.

As you read above, this is basically a wild, balls to the wall, violent action movie done in homage to movies like Die Hard, The Long Kiss Goodnight, Face/Off, Hard Boiled and True Lies.

The art is very minimal, loose and cartoony but it works well with the frenetic crazy action.  Also the art fits well with the tongue in cheek mood for the comic as well...

Grumpy Cat/Garfield #1+2

Writer: Mark Evanier
Art: Steve Uy

It’s the inevitable meeting of the sourpusses! Garfield, the reigning cynical cat of newspapers and TV crosses paths with Grumpy Cat, the internet sensation whose scowl endeared herself to the world. Who’s the most sarcastic? Well, he likes lasagna and not much else…and she doesn’t even like lasagna. Can these two inhabit the same comic book mini-series, let alone the same planet? You’ll find out in a trio of issues written by Mark Evanier and illustrated by Steve Uy. We’d say it’s the cat’s meow but neither of these cats meows.

I’m sorry but it was hard to get into these books.  I am suffering a bit from fatigue of licensed properties moving into comics...
