Card Shark Comics’ head honcho Dave Cook recently hit us with not one but two releases following successful Kickstarter campaigns for them both and with already impressive starts to both expectations were high.
Chris Sides is a creator I’ve known for years without realizing it but looking back at his body of work with Whispering Sands, Dark Matter (Vol 1 & 2) and his contributions to some cracking anthologies it’s no wonder our paths crossed.
The first thing I read from Dave Cook was issue #1 of Bust and I stumbled across it at a Convention after the Kickstarter had come & gone – but since then I’ve been on-board with more of Bust, his Vessels title and I’ve interviewed him a few times before as well.
Anthology releases, particularly from Small Press, always seem to get a bit of a rough ride of things given the quality of what is being produced but I’ve been lucky enough to have dodged any poor examples and instead been able to read some good, great or amazing collections of stories, with the ComicHaus release slipping into the last of those categories.
Back in April this year I reviewed issue #1 of Little Girl Blackfrom James McCulloch & Pedro Mendes but since then they’ve finished the three issue run and got the collected edition funded through Kickstarter.
