KICKSTARTER SPOTLIGHT: 'Mitch Hammer: Construction Mutant' #1 by Chris Lewis, Fernando Pinto, K. Michael Russelll

MITCH HAMMER #1 is 24-pages of construction worker vs. big monster action, available in digital form for ONLY ONE DOLLAR, or as an OVERSIZED XXL print edition!


MITCH HAMMER issue #1 (of 3) introduces us to the titular construction worker, who wants to go home and have a beer after a long day of work. He’ll have to wait for his barley pop, though, when the local community college is attacked by C.L.O.T., the militant wing of the National Blood Clot Association. Together with his best buddy Jorge and the brilliant graduate student Katie, it’s up to Mitch to save the students from science gone wrong.

Unless you're looking for a physical copy of the book. In that case we've got something extra special for you in the form of an XXL print edition!

At a hefty 7.5 x 11 format (estimated), the print version of MITCH HAMMER is almost as big as the man himself. Not only will you be able to see the glorious artwork in super size, but you can use the comic to swat away any invasive mutant caterpillars that might be creepy crawling your way at this very moment.

With this two-track approach - offering the pdf at the low low price of $1, while giving physical comics lovers the chance to order an XXL analogue version - we hope to get MITCH HAMMER into as many meaty hands as possible. And every penny raised will go towards producing issue #2. The future of blue-collar comics has never looked brighter!



Did I mention that MITCH HAMMER #1 is completely finished? We can start sending out rewards as soon as the campaign ends!

Which is good because I can’t wait for you to see the results of this insanely-talented creative team. Fernando Pinto draws lovely caterpillars, both the motorized and mutant-ized variations. K. Michael Russell brings an old school vibe with some tasty colors. Nic J. Shaw, aka Ironbark, makes my script look good with his bold letters. And with Dan Hill edits, and a Chris Kosek-designed cover that’s going to knock your socks off, this is the muscular action book you’ve been waiting for.


As I said, the book is already finished, so I don’t see any risks here. Other than the health risk associated with losing your heart to one of those safety vest-wearing, chest hair-spouting, dangerous but lovable construction worker types!

REVIEW: 'Cyber Force' #3 by Bryan Hill, Matt Hawkins, and Atilio Rojo

The story of Aphrodite is the focus of 'Cyber Force' #3. This compelling chapter continues to build the new world of Top Cow's reimagined original title. Corporate greed leads to murder and coercion until one doctor's obsession results in a powerful revelation.


CYBER FORCE #3 
Writer: Matt Hawkins, Bryan Hill Artist: Atilio Rojo Letterer: Troy Peteri Editor: Elena Salcedo Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: May 30, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★1/2 (4.5/5)
Marc Silvestri released 'Cyber Force' twenty-six years ago and this second reboot of the former flagship series rests in the hands of writers Bryan Hill and Matt Hawkins. It was only a matter of time before we'd get the whereabouts of the sentient android Aphrodite. Hill and Hawkins dedicate this issue to her story, and it's probably the best in the series so far. We get very little Carin and Morgan in order to give what is essentially an unnerving scientific horror story. 
Cyber Data is the or…

REVIEW: 'Cyber Force' #2 by Matt Hawkins, Bryan Hill, and Atilio Rojo

As Carin becomes accustomed to her new abilities, Stryker is determined to keep her out of the line of fire. He knows these "gifts" come at a price. Meanwhile, The Accuser recruits a dangerous ally.


CYBER FORCE #2  
Writer: Matt Hawkins, Bryan Hill Artist: Atilio Rojo Letterer: Troy Peteri Edited by Elena Salcedo Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: April 25, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
Matt Hawkins and Bryan Hill set the foundation in issue one with the explosive and destructive arrival of The Accuser. In her wake was the shattered body of Stryker, who along with his paraplegic daughter, get an extraordinary chance to become not only whole again but enhanced. Carin has taken to her powerful working legs with enthusiasm and joy. Stryker not so much because he knows they're being used by C.O.I.It's an uneasy arrangement but origin stories are rarely simple and carefree. Whether one's powers are considered a gift or a curse, there is a price to pay i…

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …

REVIEW: 'Slots' #1 by Dan Panosian

Created, written, and drawn by Dan Panosian, 'Slots' #1 is his baby and he has a story to tell at his own damn pace. This beautifully illustrated story is centered squarely on former boxer Stanley Dance and his attempt to find redemption despite being someone without many redeeming qualities.


SLOTS #1 
Writer: Dan Panosian Artist: Dan Panosian Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: October 4, 2017 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
'Slots' is more of a character study than a rip-roaring crime caper but Panosian's protagonist is a charming cad, full of confidence, capable of swindling you out of a restaurant bill with a devilish grin on his face. He's headed back to Vegas to fulfill a favor he owes. He returns to his old haunts where everyone knows him and knows he must be playing some kind of angle. 'Slots' succeeds because Stanley is so magnetic even when he's a jerk he's interesting. So following him around town meeting up with old friends is…
