FLARE graduates from comics to prose anthology
From the official Pro Se press release . . . . .
Pro Se Productions, through arrangement with Heroic Publishing, brings one of independent comics’ brightest stars to life in prose. FLARE-THE ANTHOLOGY is now available in print and digital formats.
“Flare is here,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “and Pro Se is definitely pleased to have her. Not only is this anthology due to the work of author Barry Reese bringing Heroic and Pro Se together and his stellar LIBERTY GIRL novel, but it is also the second book in the Heroic/Pro Se imprint, but in no way the last. FLARE is one of our last books of 2016, but heralds 2017 in as the year where multiple Heroic properties will find new life in prose, and who better to lead the way than three fantastic authors writing about The Shining Goddess of Light!””
From the four color pages of Heroic Publishing, The Shining Goddess of Light flies into all new Pulp Adventures! FLARE features three stories starring the most dazzling and powerful two fisted beauty ever to grace a comic book page. Born as a result of an evil experiment, the electrifying Terri Feran takes to street and sky and beyond as Flare, protecting justice and carrying on a legacy of heroism dating back to World War II. Authors Lou Mougin, Brendan Jones, and M. Hadley take Flare from the comic page and thrust her into New Pulp! Enemies that threaten the entire universe! Secrets and ghosts from her past threatening the future of all! Darkness gathering to quench the light! And only FLARE stands in the way! FLARE, an anthology from Pro Se Productions in conjunction with Heroic Publishing.

I wasn't actually a huge fan of Robert Kirkman when I first started reading his books. He was competent, sure, but I didn't see the appeal-- The Irredeemable Ant-Man was a boring side story in the middle of Civil War and The Initiative (although I've since changed my mind about this), and his Ultimate X-Men run was, in many places, a mixed bag (although I did very much enjoy his "Phoenix?" storyline). And Marvel Zombies just seemed like a ridiculous idea--not that I bothered to try it at the time. Now, though? I've completely reevaluated my opinion on his work, and when his name is attached to a project, I'm far more likely to give it a look. I don't know if I'd classify him as a master storyteller or a comics icon--but he's very skilled, he has an incredible knack for dialog, and he writes stories that, no matter how ridiculous, seem real . In a medium where characters frequently violate the rules of physics, that's not alway

VAMPIRE VIXENS OF THE WEHRMACHT “If You Want Blood” one-shot (Bump and Grind Comics, August 2013, second printing with foreword by film maker Paul Campion) Writers: The Emperor + Alex Ronald. Artist: Alex Ronald. Letterer: Jim Campbell. Original Concept: Alex Ronald. (Parental Advisory, Adult Content) Limited print run, but digital copies are available from http://www.vampirevixens.co.uk/ If you can’t figure out what this comic is about from that title, then I’m guessing you’ve been living for decades in a cave without a DVD player and no access to cable television. VAMPIRE VIXENS OF THE WEHRMACHT is a fast-paced horror comic driven by action, rooted in World War II history, and dripping with blood, gore and tantalizing sexual imagery. What makes it work is a light-hearted approach to the subject matter, all in fun but never silly or stupid. You may find yourself laughing at several of the scenarios or chuckling at the devilish dialogue. VAMPIRE VIXENS O
