REVIEW: 'Home Sick Pilots' #2 by Dan Watters, Caspar Wijngaard, and Aditya Bidikar

The Old James House has lost its ghosts. With her new powers, it's up to Ami to bring them back...whether they want to come home or not. Even when they're really big ghosts wrapped in metal, with lots of sharp edges and things. HOME SICK PILOTS #2 Writer: Dan Watters Artist: Caspar Wijngaard Letterer: Aditya Bidikar  Designer: Tom Muller Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: January 13, 2021 Cover Price: $3.99 Score:  ★★★☆☆ (3/5) A powered-up ghostified Ami has been compelled to find the ghosts of The Old James House in the form of an enchanted horseshoe. Its current bearer isn't going to give it up so easily. Meanwhile, Ami's friends Buzz and Rip are left looking for answers about her whereabouts back at the house. The second issue of Home Sick Pilots from Dan Watters and Caspar Wijngaard takes a surprising turn as it defies the expectations of a haunted house story established in its debut.

KICKSTARTER SPOTLIGHT: 'Black & Blue' The Underwater Alien Attack Graphic Novel

Earth has been invaded. An alien species has taken 99.99% of the population. But we have a secret weapon: Saltwater. Something in it destroys them. So, we flooded the planet. But they’re still out there, waiting for any chance to pick off the remnants of the human race.


The Cobalt species are dwindling. A famine on their homeworld has left them almost extinct. Until they found a planet teeming with stupid, delicious animals. They thought their problems were gone until a toxic substance covered their new buffet world. How will they survive now?

'Black and Blue' is a sci-fi war story, told from both sides of an alien invasion. The human protagonist, Mattaya, a young Polynesian woman, is an unwilling conscript into the AquaMarines, Earth’s last defense against the attackers. Lazuli, the alien protagonist, is a new inductee into the Farming Caste of the Cobalt, a balloon-like alien race on the brink of extinction, and discovers his people’s dark secret, that their only food source is actually a sentient race.

In a tight, 80 page standalone graphic novel, Black and Blue will be a hit for fans of science fiction, in particular stories involving aliens, underwater societies, and war. The script has been written, and we have two fantastic artists on board (one for each side), as well as an incredible colorist to tie it all together.



Nathan Seabolt (@n_seabolt), Bethany Varni (@bethvarni), Fahriza Kamaputra (@fahrizakp) and Ben Quinlan (@inkling_comics) have brought Black and Blue to Kickstarter.
 
The graphic novel is completely scripted, and have a full creative team attached, who have penciled, inked, and colored the first five pages of each story. Check out Kickstarter to help fund the rest of the art, as well as an offset print run of the book.
