Through the first two issues of Relics of Youth on Vault Comics, this group of teenagers brought together by Nat Rodrigues with these mysterious tattoos and visions in common look to find the truth and ultimately start finding themselves.
Recently, I picked up both Wild Bullets and Wild Bullets: Christmas written by Greg Wright at the Michigan Comic Convention at Cobo Hall in Detroit. Both these books are extremely funny with this dysfunctional Bullet family.
In a world where your crew is your family, 20 FISTS (written by Frankee White, illustrated by Kat Baumann, and lettered by DC Hopkins) tells the tale of how Chel & Billie deal with their budding romance when each come from rival fight crews.
In The Plot #1, the inaugural title of Vault’s new Nightfall line written by Tim Daniel (Fissure, Enormous) & Michael Moreci (Wasted Space, Mall) and drawn by Joshua Hixson (Shangai Red), there is so much expertly packed into this first issue without telling too much.
The new album Eve from North Carolina-based hip hop artist Rapsody is the album hip-hop really needs right now. Rapsody is incredible on the mic and with each song titled after a historic woman, this isn’t just another album, it feels like it has an unapologetic purpose: to show the strength of the black woman.
The best thing about Issue 4 of She Said Destroy from Joe Corallo and Liana Kangas is that the story just intensifies leading to the climax waiting in Issue 5. What will happen? I don’t know and that’s the best part. The air of unknown makes this comic so damn interesting! Plus, we are getting some of Kangas’ best work in this series, especially her full page, one-pane illustrations that really tie the emotions and consequences of the story together.
