STAFF PICKS :: SQUARRIORS #1 :: DECEMBER 07, 2014

December 11, 2014 By: Rico Renzi Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

 

staff_picksmatt_staff_picksMATT’S PICK :: SQUARRIORS #1: Go Nuts Over Squarriors!
I’m all about the idea of comics featuring woodland creatures taking up tiny bows, arrows and swords! Sadly, I missed the boat on “Mouse Guard”. So, this is my (our) chance to get in on the ground floor of an interesting post-apocalyptic tale of battle-hardened sentient-animals. This title looks like it will borrow some story-arc pacing from “Mouse Guard” – they are based on seasons. The art featured in this book looks lush and kinetic, suitable for a book about tiny woodland-warriors. Artistically interesting “camera angles” and engaging dialog make this a book worth investigating. Based on the sample pages I’ve seen and the creators’ successful crowd-funding campaign, Squarriors looks like a winner!

“Introducing a brand new large format Leporello from American artist Dustin Harbin.

BeholdTheDinosaurs011

Can you name over 100 Dinosaurs off the top of your head? Do you know which of them came first? Which were the tallest and longest and which were the smallest and shortest? Which of them travelled by land and sea, or sky? Well if you don’t know, Behold! the Dinosaurs! will get you well on your way there, with over 100 of the most awe-inspiring dinos and a handful of other prehistoric creatures that leap, crawl, run, fly, swim and slither from one side of this 4 metre concertina to the other, right up to the point where… well, you know.

Dustin Harbin is well known in the alternative comics scene for his Diary Comics series published by Koyama Press. Dustin’s work has also appeared in Casanova, Seconds and the Hic & Hoc Illustrated Journal of Humor. He lives in North Carolina in the United States, just east of the region formed when the Ur-continents of Baltica and Laurentia collided, throwing up the Appalachian Mountains near the beginning of the Devonian Period. His favourite dinosaur is – of course – the Stegosaurus.”

staff_picks rico_staff_picksRICO’S PICK ::MULTIVERSITY: PAX AMERICANA: Grant Morrison and his most perfect collaborator Frank Quitely reunite to bring you this alternate earth tale of Charlton heroes The Question, Blue Beetle, Captain Atom, Nightshade and Peacemaker. Sounds like a mini Morrison/Quitely one issue stab at Watchmen done their way and it should be interesting.
