Somewhere in the city slums, Street Tiger wakes up, not even remembering how he survived the explosion and the brutal beating from Egghead’s goon, the Shark. Meanwhile, at the city suburbs of Barrio Crema, what seems to be a drug deal takes place. But as always happens in Nam City, nothing is what it seems!
With an original graphic style, Spanish creator Ertito Montana brings the action of every pulp, exploitation movie, plenty of martial arts, callous gangs and skull-breaking bats!
“I f***ing love this comic – it’s violent, well-written, blackly funny and pretty damn great in every regard. Imagine if you took an artist like Adrian Tomine or Peter Bagge and told them to create the most grindhouse/kung fu/B-grade schlock action epic ever and THIS would be what they might come up with…if they were HALF AS GOOD as Spanish creator Ertito Montana.”
Street Tiger is back to work, but this time he isn’t alone! After his failure taking down the Crime Lord Egghead, the Nam City vigilante enlists the help of the deadly Black Dove. Don’t miss the last issue of this head-busting, knuckle-cracking, exploitation comic by innovative artist Ertito Montana!
“I would encourage anyone that’s been looking for a small press/indie book to sink their teeth into to check out Street Tiger. Street Tiger is different, adventurous in its storytelling and art style and let’s not forget weird. Street Tiger is a weird book, and I’ve been dying to read a weird book for a while.”
Read here the full saga of the Ghost Wolf, the spirit of vengeance of the Northern Wastes. When the clan of the Sons of Corr lost their courage, they were swept by the wild tribes. But there was one man decided to fight… and paid with his life. He will become the vessel for the long, forsaken spirit of vengeance… The Ghost Wolf!
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
