Remember that time I poured out my heart and soul about the Robocop franchise when reviewing Mullet Cop? Needless to say, if you're any kind of comic or artistic creator, and just email me with the phrase "robocop" and a copy of your book I'll read it =-)
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.
Set several decades in the future, Lords of Iron finds humanity in a struggle for dominance of the solar system against a genetically engineered race of beings called “Vees” who have successfully colonized Venus and now seek control over the asteroid belt. Robotech meets The Expanse in this brand new cyberpunk comic book series, as we follow a squadron of Russian "Stellar Knights” who pilot power armor, as they seek to defend Earth’s smelting facility on Ceres.
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.”
In checking out the preview pages both here and on their official kickstarter page this story screams many of my preferences. I love the idea where there is an outright planetary challenge with a potential plea for mercy (thats why I'm digging Blue Flame right now), elements of faith with potential challengers who believe in science, winged beings and GIANT FING ROBOTS, I'm here for it!!!!!
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!
Again, each time I get a sniff, a taste, a tease, or a hint of anything going on in the world of Something is Killing the Children, you know I'm definitely reading it, and there's a 98.6% chance I'm writing about it. Clearly, in getting Boom's preview email for this weeks, releases it was the first thing I downloaded, read, and got even more excited to hold the physical copy in my hands!
Something is Killing the Children #20 (Boom! Studios)
After witnessing a murder for eating plot at the end of issue #1 Joey was shook. She knew she witnessed a murder, but did not understand the full magnitude of it all. Regardless, she wanted to leave. However, after attempting to rouse her boyfriend so they could leave, she yet again failed (I've had similar phantom conversations with my wife when I've taken my insomnia medication).
Needing to find irrefutable evidence that a murder happened the night before, she began snooping around the house, where she finds a friendly ear who gives her more information than she may need......
I absolutely think the full creative team is crushing it yet again, and I can't wait to get as many of the covers for Issue 2 as I can! I also hope this book goes to a second printing did just like issue 1 (because that cover was HOT!!!)
Check out the preview pages below and get ready for the second course! You should definitely try to pick it up from your LCS or order it from my buddies over at AMKM Comics!
Something is Killing the Children #20 (Boom!)
By: James Tynion IV, Werther Dell'edera, Miquel Muerto
As the press release from Boom! Studios asks:
"Can Erica withstand the final stages of the mysterious Order of St. George initiation? Erica finally faces her official initiation into the Order of St. George, a torturous process that pits a child against an unrestrained monster… and bonds them to it for the rest of their life. Does Erica have what it takes to earn the Mark of St. George, embody the oath of secrecy each member of the House of Slaughter makes, and take her rightful place among the Order?"
Check out the preivew pages below, and then make sure you've got your pre-order secured at your LCS for the September 29th release of this heartpounding issue!
