    Cosmic Treadmill: LEAVING MEGALOPOLIS (review) - AT FORCES OF GEEK

    Today, Dark Horse releases Leaving Megalopolis, originally a Kickstarter funded project from the amazing creative team of Gail Simone and artist Jim Calafiore.

    Jim and Gail were responsible for a longtime run on Secret Six, the DC villain team book that will be returning to the New 52 with Gail on writing duties. 

    Leaving Megalopolis stands in the grand tradition of books going back to Watchmen. At the center of the conflict, innumerable super powered beings take over and turn on the innocent humans they at one time were sworn to protect. 

    Mina is our hero — a cop with baggage just trying to get out of the city in one piece.

    Strong analog characters to popular super heroes have been created for Leaving Megalopolis
    The Man of Granite — Overlord — is our Superman, Hulk and even a ‘grim and gritty’ Batman. In this world, comics also celebrate the heroes, and references and an excerpt from issue #47 of the fictionalOverlord comic is the turning point that the comic writers make Overlord a dark hero.

    COMICS

    Gail Simone and Jim Calafiore (Secret Six) Kickstarted a dream, but for the citizens of Megalopolis it is a nightmare. Leaving Megalopolis shows what happens when the good heroes turn on the people they were sworn to protect. Gilbert Hernandez (Love and Rockets) delivers a punk rock sequel to last year’s Marble Season with Bumperhead from Drawn and Quarterly. It’s a story of growing up in the magical way only an Hernandez can illustrate, brilliant coming-of-age stuff with a flavor of 80s punk culture in LA. Verily, celebrate the final, 25th issue of a legendary Thor run with Jason Aaron’s Thor God of Thunder featuring the origin of Malekith the Accursed! … Picks this week from LeaguePodcast.com!

    Kickstarter Korner: Chatting SEX & VIOLENCE VOL. 2 With JUSTIN GRAY

    Comics writer Justin Gray just wrapped up a longstanding run on Jonah Hexwith longtime writing partner Jimmy Palmiotti.

    Gray, Palmiotti, writer Frank Tieri, artist Amanda Connor and colorist Paul Mounts make up PaperFilms, a creative collective that has launched yet another successful Kickstarter Exclusive comics campaign.

    Among the awesome rewards available in this Kickstarter-exclusive release, supporters can actually have artwork printed in the book. 

    Justin joins us today to talk about the campaign and what sets a PaperFilms project apart from the others in this interview promoting the Sex & Violence Volume 2 Kickstarter that’s running right now.


    FOG!: Hi Justin, thanks for joining us today to talk about your Kickstarter for Sex & Violence #2. What does Kickstarter mean for PaperFilms? 

    Justin Gray: Kickstarter provides opportunities for us to create work that might not otherwise find a publisher. I believe it also provides us the opportunity to help grow an audience for material that would struggle in a mainstream marketplace, which is dominated by a specific genre.

    Kickstarter Korner With Joseph Schmalke for THE INFERNAL PACT AT FORCES OF GEEK

    We love it when a plan comes together! And we love when one Kickstarter project begets another…and another!

    Joseph Schmakle was on the Treadmill back in November for Calamitous Black Devils and now has The Infernal Pact campaign running.

    Put your earbuds to 11 for this heavy metal meth fueled ride into the darkness!




    FOG!: Joe, it was really awesome to see you at Boston Comic Con. What was your show schedule this year and want to tell us about the Calamitous Black Devils’ launch? 

    Joseph Schmakle: So this year I’m concentrating more on creating my new comic book so I’ll just be doing local conventions for the rest of the year. Coming up I’ll be at Granite State Comic Con in Manchester New Hampshire and then at Bang Pop in Bangor Maine.
