Interview with Drew Edwards – Writer of Lucy Chaplin: Science Starlet

Interview with Drew Edwards – Writer of Lucy Chaplin: Science Starlet

Since Lucy Chaplin comes from Halloween Man can you first give a little background to him and his comic for folks who are new to your works?

Halloween Man(aka Solomon Hitch) is  best described as the weird adventures of a zombie superhero and his sexy mad scientist girlfriend. They’ve battled everything from space dwarves, the Loch Ness monster, the Headless Horseman, vegan vampires, and even the Invisible Man. We have a lot of fun making it and I think that translates onto the page.

 

The comic has existed for nearly two decades in a number of different formats. It began as a web comic and it’s currently an ongoing series on ComiXology, with various annuals and crossovers tied into it...

HARBINGER WARS 2 Issue 2

HARBINGER WARS 2

For the rare and immensely powerful subset of humanity known as psiots, their unique abilities have come with an enormous cost. Once, their existence was known only to a select few. Now, the revelation that thousands of these latent telekinetic “harbingers” secretly live among us…with the potential to be activated at any moment…has led the American government to a dramatic tipping point…

Armed with new extra-governmental authority, the deep-black military contractor known as Omen has been authorized to identify, evaluate, and, if need be, eliminate all super-normal threats to the homeland. H.A.R.D. Corps units have been deployed into cities and towns across the United States to enforce their orders.

In the East, one of the most powerful minds on Earth, Peter Sta...

Konungar: War of Crowns #1

Konungar: War of Crowns #1

Writer:  Sylvain Runberg

Artist:  Juzhen

Game of Thrones meets Warcraft in a gorgeously rendered epic fantasy from the writer of Titan’s Millennium saga – Sylvain Runberg!

In the Viking kingdom of Alstavik, civil war rages! Royal brothers Rildrig and Sigvald each claim succession to the throne, but with their people divided, the land is ripe for a Centaur invasion…

Will the warring sons join forces to face the ancient foe of the Vikings, or does Alstavik face certain doom?

Sorry but before we get into these book, this feels like another missed opportunity for better trade dress or marketing on this book.

First off this is an imprint of Titan Comics, called Statix Press.  What that mean I don’t know...

The Trials and Tribulations of Miss Tilney

Writer: Duke David Doub

Artist: Marchioness Sarah Elkins/Countess Danielle Alex St. Pierre

Letterer: Vizcondessa Joamette Gil

Publisher: Dusk Comics

Synopsis: Miss Tilney has gotten her first big assignment as a reporter. All she has to do is interview accused mass murderer, Lord Beowulf Harwood. She has a strong hunch that he is innocent of the accusations and is set on finding out the truth.

Review: Fans of period dramas, Steampunk style, and mysteries will instantly fall in love with this comic. The artwork is beautiful to look at. Its detail makes each panel pop, while the grainy colouring brings to mind the look of a Victorian era newspaper. The story immediately caught my interest...

Medieval Spawn/Witchblade #2 (Of 4)

Medieval Spawn/Witchblade #2 (Of 4)

Writer / Artist: Brian Haberlin, Brian Holguin

Cover: Brian Haberlin

Witchblade is captured and crucified…will she survive? And will Spawn be her savior?

I have never been one for Witchblade or Spawn.  They are both products of the 90s comic excess where style was over substance and even the style wasn’t very good.

So it was no surprise even though this is historical fiction, it is so in the most loosest of terms.  There is no explanations of timeframes or time jumps.  There is never explanation of places or people as well (like say Gaul or France or even Europe).  Apparently this medieval Earth is just a vague time period that is more familiar with a bad D&D session than anything really.

Also, the plot logic doesn’t make too much sense either...
