Imagine Agents #1

3380838-imagine+agents+#1+(2013)+-+page+1  IMAGINE AGENTS #1

Created & Writer: Brain Joines

Illustrated by Bachan

Colorist: Ruth Redmond

Letterer: Deron Bennett

Did you have a imaginary friend when you were younger and as you got older your imaginary friend disappeared. Every wonder where he/she/it went to? Did you care? Well Boom Comics brings you what happens and who are the people that collect them.

Created and written by Brain Joines this interesting idea of what happens to all those imaginary friends that are no longer required by the children they were friends with. Crossing Ghost Busters and Men In Black into this book of having agents come and collect them when they are no longer required. Also not all the imaginary friends like the idea of being taken in.

Figment activity is skyrocketing and agents with hardly any training are being forced into action. That being said we meet new agent Terry Snowgoose and seasoned agent Dave Slatern as they try and take down a Moog of Mog. Slatern is the straight man to Snowgoose’s fool and it works fine. The agents wear special ear piece that allows them to see the imaginary friends also special equipment that captures them in sort of Pokemon ball type of device. Through out the book we are introduce to various different imaginary’s and we find out that all is not well. We are introduce later in the book to Dapple who has plans to shake things up. The idea for this book is interesting and even though there are mixtures of different pieces from other areas of entertainment I am interested in the story.

The art work by Bachan is very good and he has a great imagination in his art work. Some of the creations of the imaginary’s is great. Mixing some interesting pieces of real world pieces into wild looking art work.

So in the end I found this book a good read and the art work really helps with creating the world where the figments of a child’s imagination come to live. Also like most things in life, there is a  dark underbelly that is not always seen.

I give Imagine Agents 4 pops out of 5

Remember comics are to be enjoyed. Not destroyed.

Movie Monday’s: Killzone Intercept

Hey Poppers

Once again I travel the road of YouTube to find you some interesting fan made short films. This time around I found another amazing piece of work done by the Six Foot Five Productions. Killzone Intercept.  Another film that takes a game franchise and expands on the world created for the game. This film was 2 years in the making and it shows. You can see that they took their time making this film and you can see that it was all put on film. The special affects and the details to the costumes are all amazing. The acting is great, excellent and not wooded like other productions out there. The direction by Brian Curtin is great and story written by Brian Curtin and Taylor Robinson shows that what we think is fun in games is hell in reality.

So take sometime and watch Killzone Intercept if you are a fan or not of the game, take a look.

“Killzone Intercept occurs before the events of Killzone 4 as the ISA evacuate Helghan. A small scout squad is called upon to stall a large group of approaching Helghasts that plan to cut off the ISA convoy from reaching the extraction point. Outnumbered, the squad takes on the task with hopes of getting everyone off the planet alive.”

Dam, Dam, Dam

Hey Poppers

So if you haven’t heard or seen by now the first official trailer for Captain America The Winter Soldier is out and boy, oh boy is it awesome. Along with Cap we see the return of The Black Widow and also The Falcon.

“After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy—the Winter Soldier.”

Fantomex

Fantomex_Max_01  FANTOMEX #1

Artist: Shawn Crystal

Writer: Andrew Hope

Letterer: VC’s Joe Sabino

Colorist: Lee Loughridge

Editor: Jordan D. White

So boys and girls I have no idea about this character. I believed that this was a new character and I had found something new. Boy was I wrong. I did some research and found that this character was first created by Grant Morrison and Igor Kordey in August 2002. Fantomex made his first appearance in New X-Men #128 and was revealed to be a escape experiment from the Weapon Plus Program.

So I could go back and give you some back story on the character more but I am giving you a take on this book and not his past. So that being sad I did like this book. I like the writing style of Andrew Hope who had not written a comic book for almost 20 years. I have say a welcome return. His writing style has a nice easy flow to it and is not hard to read, mixing in some good humor here and there.

Now the artistic style of Shawn Crystal is different. I found his style to be very interesting. I am not sure purist would like his odd drawings of the human form. At times the characters looks like the rubber bands wrapped around a human skeleton. There are times when you can almost see the muscles stretching to what would be the snapping point.

Oh yeah the characters. We are introduce quickly to Fantomex, internationally renowned super criminal do what he does best. Stealing shit from bad people. Also special agent Rhona Flemyng, dedicated. Intense. Looks great in skintight black Kevlar. Also we meet E.V.A, Fantomex’s biological spacecraft. A living machine that has taken to Fantomex. When Flemyng fails to apprehend Fantomex the higher ups call in special agents, Stuart Stirling, Alexandra Macready and Richard Gaunt to take over. Later on you find out that these three have a plan of their own.

The book is a nice, fun read and worth a look. So I say if you have to pick up something to try pick up Fantomex #1

So in the end I give Fantomex #1 3 pops out of 5
