The old adage of blaming the last guy won’t work in this pre-apocalytic political and sci-fi thriller. As the new president, Stephen Blades must bear the weight of a 7 year secret his predecessor has left him. The answer to the ultimate question, “Is there life out there?” is answered. And the answer is a resounding yes. And the worse part, they’re most likely not friendly.
I’m really digging the writing, art and creative style of creator Rich Foster. His ability to convey a strong, immersed short story that is ‘Red Giant: The Baron Goes Hunting’ is promising. It opens up a world in which most readers would desire more issues. I sure do.
Join No’Madd as he embarks on a journey to save the himself and probably more importantly, the world, from slave alien beings and their overlord. The adventure takes place on a planet where the inhabitants wield axes and swords, fight ant-like creatures called Gnats, fly airships, pilot sea vessels, battle autonomous laser-firing robots and God-like super beings! As you can tell, author Andrew Kafoury packs a lot of content into his first series. And rightly so, as several characters are introduced in what the author promises to be the beginning of several graphic novels. Although this first series focuses on No’Madd, each character can potentially have their own back story and adventure.
Today we’ll be starting our recommended reads for the weekend. Some will be stand alone issues, others, the beginning of a saga. Or any kick-ass issues we just want to share. Not all recommendations will be new. Some will be weeks, months, or years old if they’re truly special. But our goal is to recommend books for readers who are short on time, need quick recos or just plain want someone else to decide for you what to read. We’re a small team so if you have any recommendations, shoot us an email in the top right at “Contact Us”. Without further ado, the picks of the week.
