Comicbook Review: “A Reign of Beasts” (Andrew Carman and Jared Boggess)

Summary: The prophet Daniel wakes up from a vision that is filled with horrific imagery. A prophetic dream (or nightmare) which shows Titans or kaijun emerging to battle humanity in the near future. Then as he nears the end of his, then comes a “Son of Man” to do a rescue mission.

Cover Art: This is just a foretaste of the art that you’ll experience inside the comic. And just by the cover (without giving away the details) you’ll find this is not the usual comicbook artwork. The monsters are scary looking and brooding over Daniel. It gives you that vibe that they’re menacing Daniel in his dream. The purple or maroon (color blind on digital copy) color instead of black still delivers that insidious feel to the reader.

Comicbook Review: “Chronicles of Faith: David” #1 (Ivan Anaya and Brannon Hollingsworth)

Summary: King David continues to tell little Solomon his story. This comic touches King Saul’s fall from the favor of the God of Israel, Samuel anointing David as the new king and revealing the Philistines champion, Goliath.

Cover Artwork: This cover is a departure from the #0 cover which is a minimalist and it doesn’t give away the story you’ll be indulging. Although this is an all for ages comic, you can see in the cover a bit of seriousness of what the content will be. Also the take away of the cover is the fantastic illustration of Anaya that is different from the previous issue (more of that later).

Comicbook Review: Balsamus: The Lost Lamb & Chapter 1: The Watchers

Welcome to another comicbook review and we will dive on two Balsamus books from Brazilain artist and writer Karolyne Rocha and Brainy Pixel. Both books are short having 12 and 16 pages respectively, that’s why we will review them in one post.

Cover Art: The two heroes (?) of Balsamus graces both issues, one having a bust portrait and the second issue the full body. Although it doesn’t give away the story or adventure they’re in but by just looking at it the drawing, it’s definitely manga. It’s not manga inspired, it 100% manga. Once you go to each issues, you’ll admire Rocha’s story. The black and white interiors, the vibe and Rocha’s treatment of the characters are legit manga. Line this comic with what Viz Media or Tokyopop are dishing out, you’ll never notice the difference. Plus the aesthetic of having dents on the cover making the comic look like old adds the awesomeness.
