STAFF PICKS :: IVAR, TIMEWALKER #1 :: JANUARY 21, 2015

January 19, 2015 By: Rico Renzi Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

staff_picks quay_staff_picksZAQ’S PICK :: IVAR, TIMEWALKER #1: My pick for this week is a doozy, especially given how much time has passed since my last pick. Speaking of “time” I give you, “Ivar, Timewalker”! Published by Valiant, & the brainchild of writer Fred Van Lente and artist Clayton Henry. This book is about time travel, well, more about saving existence from time travel…? Our hero, Ivar, is like an eastern block Constantine. Nuff said!

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!
