I've always been a big Valiant comics fan....and I instantly jumped at the opportunity to see their first theatrical offering "Bloodshot." I didn't get to see it on the day it released, however I went to see it on the day after the greenest of beers, to find shortly after I returned home that schools would be physically shuttered for the remainder of the school year (and then worse.....). I thought my life would be tricky managing a work life balance of my spouse and I both working at home with three kids under the age of 5 (with our youngest being slightly over a year old).
That large challenge never allowed me to think about what other folks may be experiencing throughout their pandemic (aside from other parents of young kids, or my students...because thats who I had contact with throughout).
If I were entering the next defining phase of my life (from college to adulthood) I have no clue how I would have attempted to adjust......but "DAY AND AGE: YEAR ONE" allows me to think down that road!
Day and Age: Year One (self-published)
The official synopsis is " In the future, Europe has united under one man, The Autocrat. He rules the apocalyptic landscape from corporate monopolies with a vision of unity that is gospel to some, but hollow to others. To distract the 99% from their poor and empty lives, they are given the opportunity to compete in the Grand Race. A marathon street race through Europe where only one driver can make it to the end and win a life of luxury. Our hero, Sebastian Valencia enters with the hope that winning this race can make up for his wasted past, but along the way he starts to question what kind of future he is actually buying into."
This is a creative team who absolutely sings a beautiful harmony like several of my other favorite mad cave creative pairings, and I would love to interview ANYONE from this team on Shop Talk!!!!
You should definitely add this one to your pull, as I promise you will not. be disappointed!!!!!!!
This morning's first book offers "a brand new escapist cyberpunk comic book series for fans of both Robocop and The Expanse." With just THREE DAYS LEFT to meet it's goal, you can help make Lords of Iron #1 hit its goal.
Co-creator/writer Preston Poulton had the following to say about this coming release:
“I wanted a science fiction story that had the DNA of my World War 2 story, White Lily, about the two deadliest female fighter pilots who ever lived. So I’m bringing the same team over to Lords of Iron.”
Again, there are only THREE days left for them to reach their $3500 goal and they are only $280 away. Help make this ROBO-COPIAN dream a reality for me!
