    FOG! Chats With ‘The Revisionist’ Writer Frank J. Barbiere - at FORCES OF GEEK

     

     

    Frank Barbiere (Five Ghosts, Avengers World) joins us today to talk about his latest time travel crime book  The Revisionist from new publisher Aftershock. The ongoing title stars time traveling assassin tasked with repairing a cracked timeline!

    FOG!: Thanks for joining us today, Frank! The Revisionist #1 is out now, from Aftershock. How did you get involved in the launch of a new publisher?

    Frank Barbiere: I had met Mike Marts a few times socially, and was always interested in working with him. Mike has edited many of my favorite books, including long runs on X-Men and Batman.

    stunWhen Aftershock was starting to get the ball rolling, Mike reached out to see if I had any creator owned properties I was interested in pursuing.

    I’m a creator who loves to have my own books as well as work for hire, so I quickly responded with a few ideas I had kicking around and we settled on The Revisionist.

    Are you happy and excited to work with them? The roster from day one certainly caught my eye!

    It’s been a wonderful experience. Aftershock has built a really strong publisher where they let their talent have creative freedom and work with the people they want—I was able to handpick my creative team (co-creator and artist Garry Brown and colorist Lauren Affe), as I knew they’d deliver a book we were all proud of.

    Everyone involved is extremely passionate about having beautiful, quality books and I think it shows in their library. It’s an honor to be amongst some of the best creators in comics, as well as some of the best new talent.

    Here are 5 things we are looking forward to the most, and that’s only Day 1!

     

    SPIDER-MAN PS4


    Insomniac’s new Spider-Man game for PS4 looks like the best web-slingin’ action that we haven’t seen since Web of Shadows.

     

    What’s going on with Peter’s white spider though? Hopefully his costume will be skinnable in DLC. Better or worse than what the CEO of Parker Industries is wearing on his chest currently, a glowing monstrosity!

    LIVE AFTER O'DEATH - GREAT SCOTT SHOW REVIEW 6/9/16 - at DO617.com

     

    Last night at Great Scott was ethereal and moving with amazing sets from Peter Bernhard (from Devil Makes Three), The Huntress and Holder of Hands (ft. MorganEve Swain of Brown Bird) and a highly anticipated return of Brooklyn’s O’Death to the Allston Stage. There were emotional and moving sets from all of the acts, reminding the crowd of train punks, bearded weirdos and punks about a folk country scene that has a darker side.

     

    On his first solo tour, Pete Bernhard, the Vermont native and the voice of The Devil Makes Three shared with us songs that are inconceivably too dark for his other band. His sister joined him on stage for three songs taking us from a familiar DMT and Townes Van Zandt song to somethings else entirely. The duets with his sister were my favorite songs of the impressive and moody set.
