Dinosaur eggs hatch as MANOSAURS emerges in November
MANOSAURS VOL. 1: "Walk Like a Manosaur"
In stores November 21st!
EDITOR’S NOTE: Courtesy of PAPERCUTZ, we present this preview of MANOSAURS from their official press release:
We're proud to announce the release of MANOSAURS, an all-new graphic novel series that's adventurous and uproarious (emphasis on the "roar")!
Before we get to the preview, we want to share with you some awesome news: Patricia Lyfoung, the amazing writer and artist of THE SCARLET ROSE will be at New York Comic Con next weekend, where she'll sign books, take photos, and impart her wisdom on a couple panels--all in celebration of the launch of her wonderful book! And be sure to stop by the Papercutz table (R7 in Artist's Alley) and say hello!
In MANOSAURS VOL. 1: "Walk Like a Manosaur," Leo “the Doc” Jeffries is down on his luck with his rundown dinosaur museum, Dynamic Dino Display, until he unearths a box of bonafide dinosaur eggs! The eggs hatch four talking dinosaurs who rapidly adapt and grow into their new environment…the twenty first century! Now, Tri, Rex, Ptor, and Pterry must navigate life after extinction and defend their new family from forces of a dreaded enemy known as Armaggedon, who would like to make sure these powerful reptiles stay extinct.
Both prehistoric and modern, adventurous and comedic, MANOSAURS uses science and dinosaurs—an enduringly popular subject for kids—to tell a truly human tale!
Papercutz will release MANOSAURS VOL. 1: "Walk Like a Manosaur" in hardcover (ISBN: 9781629918143, $12.99) and paperback (ISBN: 9781629918136) on November 21.
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
