Casual Comics Preview – Week of March 15, 2017

I’m excited to announce (well, tease more than announce) that we’ve got some big things coming over at the Casual Comics Cast. In the meantime, here are some new comics this week for your consideration.

We’ve had some real bummer weeks in the recent past, so hopefully, by the time I get to the end of this, I’ll have a pick for the Casual Comics Hot Pick of the Week.

Cadmus #1

Nice. Right off the bat, we’ve got a terrific comic.

Cadmus #1 – Writer: Samantha Beck, Art: Samantha Beck, Publisher: Antarctic Press

“Antarctic Press presents a true tale for the ages, a gorgeous retelling of a classic Greek myth. When his sister Europa is kidnapped from his home of Phoenicia, Cadmus is sent by his father to retrieve her. Unable to find her yet forbidden to return without her, his fortunes seem to turn when an oracle reveals how he shall sow the first seeds of a mighty city of his own!” 

This is the kind of comic I could really get on board with. I have not heard of Samantha Beck, but she’s really killing it with dynamic art and a can’t miss story. I haven’t read Ovid’s Metamorphoses since college, and I’m really looking forward to revisiting it in this comic.

Death Be Damned #2

Writer:  Ben Acker, Art: Hannah Christenson, Publisher: Boom Studios!

This is another book with brilliant art. I wish that the solicit were a little more explicit about the story author Ben Acker is delivering.  Read the rest of this entry

Hot New Comic Picks of the Week (July 2, 2014): Powered by Dragon’s Lair

July brings the dead heat of Summer, combined with loud explosions overhead that keep me from falling asleep at a reasonable hour. So, running on no sleep – with my ADHD at an all time high – let’s see what the folks at Dragon’s Lair recommend for those long tired evenings.

Also, the new WordPress interface is giving me fits, so forgive me for the sloppy layout on this post. Once I figure out where everything on the old toolbar went, it’ll be back to business as usual.

On a side note, I know my updates have been more infrequent lately, but that’s because there’s some big news coming. Into the Void, issue #1 is almost ready for prime time. Stay tuned for details.

Black Widow #8

Come on, now. Am I supposed to celebrate the birth of our nation with a story about a Russian spy? Read the rest of this entry
