Big Dog Ink Does Special Signing!

This past Saturday, Jesse James Comics, a premiere comics book store in Glendale, AZ, was invaded by the some of the most outstanding artists and writers out there also known as Big Dog Ink. Set against an abnormally hot September desert, things inside the shop were even hotter (but in the good way). Armed with an arsenal of brilliantly colored banners displaying the best of BDI’s comic creations Ian Snyder, Natali Sanders, Jenevieve Broomall, Wayne Gardiner, as well as writer and publisher Tom Hutchinson came to rock the place.

One thing I noticed right off the bat. This team doesn’t take anything for granted. They were not only more than willing to talk about their creations, they were also visibly engaged with the fans...

Mankind

Based on the Upcoming Epic Broadcast Series, Neal Adams, Marv Wolfman, Dennis Calero, Nathan Edmondson and Bill Sienkiewicz, are the Writers/Cover Artists and Illustrators of the First Graphic Novels Based on a HISTORY™ Program.

The Good:
The premise is good. Finding a way to make history more visual is a great thing. My daughter sat next to me for more than half the book and did ask questions as to what was going on, so points there.

The Marathon story. It is one of my favorite periods in history and it was unexpected to see
this story during the introduction issue. I figured it would be some huge famous battle, not one that is common but so few actually know.

I enjoyed the art and color in the book...

Brutally Frank

Have you ever looked at the cover to something and thought, man, this just isn’t for me without even picking it up and looking inside? Yeah, that was my reaction to this book, at first. Then, I picked it up and looked inside….

“A mysterious race known as The Koans have brought enlightenment, salvation and peace to weary humanity. But somewhere, hidden away beneath the surface of a perfect life, a paraplegic named Frank is being hunted for a secret he doesn’t even know he holds by someone he once trusted the most. His journey will reveal courage he never thought he had and introduce him to allies that will become his truest friends.”

The Good: I know this might sound geeky, but I loved the layout of this book...
