The actions of superheroes have always been a rich source of action-filled comics but what happens in the twilight years of a heroes life when the capes & derring-do’s are done??? Matt Garvey brings us one possibility in his Red Rocket Comet one-shot.
After an already impressive opening issue of the Awesome Comics Anthology from Dan Butcher, Tony Esmond & Vince Hunt there was never any doubt that I’d be sticking with the rest of the series and as we edge closer to the fourth being released it was time to delve back into the most recent issues.
Close was another release under the Comichaus banner that had quality written all over it and boy did it deliver.
Comichaus appeared back in early 2015 as a new platform for buying & selling indie comics but opening up a market place that benefited the creators was just the beginning of a massive contribution the team behind it would make.
The trio behind The Awesome Comics Podcast of Tony Esmond, Dan Butcher & Vince Hunt have taken their weekly podcast from strength to strength as they fight the good fight for the indie comic scene.
Lizard Men was launched under the Comichaus banner and with a sea of support through Kickstarter but the 6-issue series has managed to back that up with one of the most surprising & entertaining comics I’ve had on my reading list this year…..
Co-creators Chris Sides & Chris Travell split writing & art duties between themselves to bring us their dark & challenging one-shot Close, which they published under the Comichaus banner just a couple of months ago.
Steven Horry’s Lizard Men has just hit Kickstarter for the second half of its 6-issue run and just as I was due a catch-up on the third issue……I was lucky enough to get my hands on an advanced copy of issue #4. Cue the excitement and cue the double-review shenanigans.
