Since I was a kid, I have dreamed up Godzilla stories. Anyone who reads my novels knows that the big G had an influence on my storytelling, resulting in novels like PROJECT NEMESIS (and its sequels), and APOCALYPSE MACHINE, not to mention the upcoming UNITY. Over the past few years, I’ve been lucky enough to blaze a trail for a new literary sub-genre, the Kaiju Thriller. Creating and building this new sub-genre led to big sales, and the PROJECT NEMESIS comic book, which is closing in on the amazing sixth and final issue. With Nemesis, I was fortunate to be teamed up with artist Matt Frank, who helped design Nemesis for the novels, and Bob Eggleton, who created six amazing variant covers. And all this is just the beginning for my own kaiju creations.
Nemesis knows if you’ve been naughty or nice, so pick up issues 1 – 3 and hope that it’s a belated Santa Claus you hear scratching on your roof.
Project Nemesis #3 drops tomorrow, but you don’t have to wait to see the two amazing covers and first six pages! Nemesis is a growing girl with an appetite in this issue, getting closer to her full kaiju-sized stage. Witness the destruction! The horror! Once again, the art is by Matt Frank, colors by Deigo Rodriguez, and variant cover by Bob Eggleton.
There are a lot of ultra-violent comic books, but they are not Bearmageddon.
Bearmageddon is the first ‘book’ of a graphic novel, currently presented as a web comic.
Ethan Nicolle, best known for creating Ax Cop with his then 5-year-old brother, has now put his art skills in line with his storytelling and they are a tour de force of paneled action. A group of early twentysomething, well-meaning slackers give up on society to live in the woods. This would be all well and good if it had not coincided with the bears of the woods joining forces to wipe out mankind. On top of that, they are mutating with other animals. The corpse of an octopus/bear is found. We soon run into a bear with the skin flaps and gliding talents of a flying squirrel. I feel like I’m seeing all of Daniel Peterson’s theories about the Eco Monstrous being dramatically illustrated in the context of a fast paced, well developed story.
