LITTLE BIRD #1

WRITTEN BY: DARCY VAN POELGEEST

ART BY: IAN BERTRAM

COLORS BY: MATT HOLLINGSWORTH

LETTERS BY: ADITYA BIDIKAR

SYNOPSIS: LITTLE BIRD follows a young resistance fighter who battles against an oppressive American Empire and searches for her own identity in a world on fire. – COMIXOLOGY

STORY: This may be one of the best books I’ve read in a while. The story is written well and follows a young Canadian resistance fighter. Whom goes on a journey to find another character called the ax. The amount of easy to digest world building in this first issue is quite impressive. You are basically thrown in the middle of a war and it’s not confusing at all as to what is happening...

VINDICATION #1

Written by MD Marie

Pencils by Carlos Miko

Inks by Dema Jr.

Colours by Thiago Goncalves

Written by Gary Whita

Art by Darick Robertson

Colouring by Diego Rodriguez

Lettering by Simon Bowland

THE GOOD: One word: wow. I’m enthralled by this concept. The art captures the desolation of a post-nuclear apocalypse with the same aesthetic that I saw in my mind as I read Oliver Twist back in the day. It struck me as I flipped through the pages how alike the two worlds really are: the desperation and fear, the loss of identity, the despondence, the sheer grit required to make it through another day of hell – it’s all there...

Artist: Afu Chan
Letterer: Pat Brosseau

SYNOPSIS: 700 years into the future humans and a hostile alien race are at war in space. The human race has perfected space travel, and they discover that when any living body shuffles off the mortal coil, the soul is then shot into the outer darkness of space, where they are trapped for eternity and pissed about it!

THE STORY: I really like the story here this is from the writer of CHEW by Image Comics which is personally one of my favorite stories. I happened to have already read issue one and I realize that’s a bit of an advantage because nothing story wise is explained in this issue...
