Quotes #NCBD 12/23/2015 (@BoomStudios)

The holidays are nearly over, and I got a nice thick stack of comics to make my way through before year end, but I did catch up with my Boom!Studios comics.

I look to them primarily for two genres: crime noir and sci-fi. This past week I picked up three sci-fi titles (after all comic books and sci-fi go together like bread and butter).

Venus #1 chronicles the colonization of Mars by a US team of space explorers competing against a superior China Space Program. This is not a what if, but more of a what may likely be.

Arcadia is a virtual world of uploaded human souls, who are aware of their new digital existence.  The catch: true power still remains in the hands of the few and the subservient ‘Meat’ continue to exist to serve and maintain the virtual world.

I can’t wait to see this one as animated feature.  It’s H.G. Wells’ ‘War of the Worlds’ meets ‘Animal Farm’. This is the second chapter of ‘Wild’s End’ titled ‘The Enemy Within’. It’s already on issue #4 of 6. If you missed this one, pick up the graphic novel.

Here are the quotes:


“When you’re a kid you’re encouraged to think of human lives as stories. You know the drill: Be good, study hard, and you might enjoy ten whole minutes of Happily Ever After before they find a lump in your prostate.”

“What do these desperate rubes give you for your wolf tickets …”

Quotes For #NCBD 12/09/2015 (@BoomStudios)

Ollie Masters’ and Tyler Jenkins’ new winter land noir crime story, Snow Blind, is finally released this week. It’s got an Alaskan teenage library breaker-enterer whose whole world is about to be turned upside down when he learns his family is in the witness protection plan. Jenkins’ cold ‘scapes are awesome … and why did they have to shoot the dog?

Here are the quotes:


“…I felt more comfortable around the pages of dead authors than I do my own parents.”

“No one knows anyone, and why would you want to. We’ve all got bad beneath it all. Why put that out in the world.”
