Walking Dead Promo images for back end of the season.

Check them out….. I legitimately think sometimes their production meetings consist of “Let just fuck with them , and see how it plays out”

These comes from an interesting article on Vanity Fair where the author tries to dissect exactly what these images may mean in the bigger picture.

Comic Review: Under The Flesh

Screen Shot 2014-07-20 at 9.32.43 PM UNDER THE FLESH #1

Publisher: Escape Comics

Created and written by Greg Deltres

Illustrated and lettered by J. L. Giles-Rivera

Under The Flesh Press release:

“A gritty blast of sex, horror, sci-fi, and dabbling in various sub-themes like evolution, spirituality, and transhumanism. A zombie apocalypse comic that strays away from the traditional viral story by accentuating a premeditated reason behind the virus, as opposed to leaving the origin of the outbreak as a common question mark.”

 

Under the Flesh is a combination of Y-The Last Man, The Walking Dead, Bloodshot, Resident Evil, I Am Legend and the whole zombie apocalypse rolled into one.  Set in a world where a unknown pathogen is set free and it spread around the world in just hours.  The pathogen in no time begins attach the males turning them into flesh eating machines. A few men have survived but they are far and few between.

In the first book we meet our protagonist, Lt Ruben Lobos whom was at the time of the outbreak was being injected with nanobots in a experiment to created super soldiers(Captain America,Bloodshot). Unfortunately for him the scientist that were doing the experiment turn and he is now the only one. Lobos is hot head and is wanting to but his new improved self into battle. Lobos races back to town to get his girl friend and the both end up at the local library where they team up with woman survivors lead by a cop, Naomi. The woman are calming factor as well as the brains. Lobos wants to jump to action where the woman want to be cautious and not rush head first into the unknown.

Greg Deltres does a find job of getting the reader up to pace with what is happening. The action moves along quickly and does not seem to slow down. You are quickly introduced to the other characters  with enough detail to be interested in what they will play later on. This book has the feel and look of a zombie action movie, high on action. Like The Walking Dead the real danger is the remain humans and surviving them, not the zombies.

J. L. Giles-Rivera act style is great but at times I can see a little influence of Japanese anime. I not sure if this part of his style or just me seeing something that was unintentional. Giles-Rivera art is well suited for this type of action. The art is always seem to be in the act of motion, not wooded and stiff. Through out most of the book it is dark with the edges of panels shaded in to give you the feeling that death hangs in the air.

Over all this is very good book and well worth a look. If you want to give them a hand over at Kickstarter go over there and see what they have to offer. But don’t do it for the goodies. This book is another one of the fine books being created by small independent writers, artist and publisher.

So in the end I give Under The Flesh 4 Pops out of 5. I hope the fellows find the funds because if be a shame to see this book fade away while much lesser books find a audience.

Remember comics are meant to be enjoyed. Not destroyed.

Hey Poppers

I fellow I know thru the guys at Big Kids Playground,Dougie (aka Scruffy Doug) wrote a little piece about his thoughts on being a geek. So take sometime here and have a read. I am sure you know what he is talking about.

If you are reading this, there is a fair chance that, like me, you are a Geek. We are Geeks. We are happy to be Geeks. We are proud to be Geeks. And most importantly, we don’t deny that we are Geeks. The world however, still seems surprised at this. 
Despite the current global success of the Batman, X-Men, and Avengers franchises, the public opinion of being a comic book fan is still a negative one, with the term “geek” often used as a put-down. Admitting that you are a grown man who reads comic books or who plays video games can still get the same reaction as saying that you keep all your toenail clippings in a jar in the kitchen. Watching the mind-numbing, pointless, fly-on-the-wall garbage that is Big Brother, X-Factor, Jersey Shore, The Kardashians etc is somehow accepted as being normal, yet reading a graphic novel with well written plots and interesting characters is deemed weird. And as such, we geeks are deemed weird.
So, are we weird? Are we saddo’s with no lives? Are we some sort of underclass that look and act differently to the general public? Do we all fit the standardised “geek” image? Well, sure, I’ve no doubt that there are some of us out there who do fit the standard image of a “geek”. You know, single, long greasy hair, probably an unkempt patchy beard (with the remains of 3 day old biscuits and noodles still stuck in it), possibly thick glasses, spotty complexion, a waist band that is longer than the wearer is tall, uses computer code to talk to friends, and lives in parents loft/basement despite approaching 40y/o. Basically, Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons.
However, for me personally, and I’m sure for a large number of my fellow geeks out there, this image couldn’t be further from the truth. I’m early 30’s, married with 2 kids, live in my own home, I don’t speak fluent Klingon, I don’t have every episode of Big Bang Theory under my TV, my appearance is closer to that of a thug (shaven head, tattoos, goatee beard), and I’m more than happy to get my hands dirty by getting stuck in to any DIY or car repair jobs that need doing. But that all said, I still love my tech, my games, and my comics/movies. And I’m still extremely proud to declare that I am a geek.
