This week on Bigger Than Capes #21 – Angela is talking with writer David Pepose about his current Aftershock series Scout’s Honor, as well as his previous work on Spencer & Locke and Going To The Chapel from Action Lab – Danger Zone and his Kickstarted series The O.Z.!
“Honestly, my only complaint is that I was annoyed when I ran out of pages to read.”
“The design work throughout the series so far has been supercool and there’s definitely a lot to attract you to Radiant Black but we’re not exactly seeing a Blue Beetle style book here that captures both the personal moments and the heroics.”
“What happens after you successfully fulfil a prophecy to save the world?
Logan finds herself at university with a bunch of other kids who’ve been told they’re destined to save the world, but after completing her prophecy when she was only thirteen she’s at a loss of what to do with her life.”
This week on Bigger Than Capes: Issue #20 Will and Zach are discussing April’s Manchester Comic Book Club book – 4 Kids Walk Into A Bank by Matthew Rosenberg, Tyler Boss and Thomas Maur from Black Mask Studios.
“This is a series that feels like it has absolutely no wasted motion”
“Stefano Cardoselli’s artwork is packed with hyperactive detail, every surface looks textured and grimy, while every cityscape feels overcrowded and packed with energy. There’s a lot to take in, with some unconventional panelling and unusual perspectives to keep things extra interesting.”
“Twenty years after a nuclear war a mysterious figure walks the wasteland protecting what’s left of Boulder City, Nevada from scavengers sent out by “The King”. But in the irradiated wasteland left behind from this Unknown War, how does this man survive without any kind of shielding against radiation?”
“…there’s no denying that this first issue has the potential to be the starting point for an interesting world that contains a lot of the supernatural stuff that I’m into.”
“The relationship drama is well done and the characters largely remain relatable throughout, but the lighthearted moments that are integral to sitcoms just aren’t present here.”
“…a well balanced combination of comedy, relatable emotion and action.”
“a series about every comic book character you can imagine bleeding over into the ‘real’ world. It’s a really interesting premise and I’ll always be a sucker for alternate worlds crashing into each other.”
“while this is our best of 2020 list, this is a ‘best of’ written by someone buying books…so it isn’t going to include everything that came out this year.”
‘Part Bret Easton Ellis novel and part Neon Demon this is a series about new relationships, magic, sex, and leaving everything behind in the pursuit of fame’
“Like many of Ram’s other works Blue In Green easily deserves repeat readings as I suspect there’ll always be something more to the narrative that you’ve missed the previous time”
“Equally nostalgic and unsettling on every page”
