What I’m Reading Now – #2

“Oh, Killstrike” #2 – Boom Studios (Max Bemis, Logan Faerber)

Oh Killstrike - "Vengeance!"

This comic is absurdly funny. In fact, while reading in bed, I laughed way too hard at this issue and ended up waking up my wife. The story follows a normal guy, Jared, a new father struggling to adjust to his new status quo, while unresolved issues with his own dad linger. While looking through his attic for old 80’s comics to sell, one of his childhood anti-heroes comes to life! ‘Killstrike’ pulls himself from the panels of his book and immediately begins to seek ambiguous vengeance in the real world to no avail. Together the two venture off to find Killstrike’s creator… and possibly patch things up with Jared’s old man.

THE CROW – An Interview with James O’Barr

Interview originally appeared in Movement Magazine – Year 22: Issue #5

"The Crow" by James O'Barr

James O’Barr is the creator of the world renowned bestselling graphic novel and title character, “The Crow” – a dark metaphorical comic book that led to the famous movie adaptation starring the late Brandon Lee (in his final role) in 1994, as well as a few sequels, a TV series, and several other comic spin-offs. He wrote the book as a coping mechanism for the loss of his girlfriend at the hands of a drunk driver. It was originally published by Caliber Comics in 1989.

THE CROW - Interview

“Tonight, Hell sends an angel bearing gifts.”

Q and A

We open the interview with a few technical difficulties over the phone, James mumbles something about Japanese technology.

Erik Slader: …Ok, I think we got it! Thanks for bearing with us.

James O’Barr: It’s no problem, it just cut into your fifteen minutes. (laughs)

ES: Well I guess we better jump right in then!

JO: No, let’s ease our way into it. Ask me about my childhood or my favorite color. What’s my horoscope?

ES: (laughs) Well in that case, what’s the weirdest question a fans ever asked you at a con?

What I’m reading now…

BROKEN WORLD #1Boom Studios (Frank J. Barbiere, Chris Peterson)

Broken World

Broken World feels like one of the most original comics I’ve read in a long time. It’s a sci-fi drama, about a not-too-distant future dealing with the aftermath of an impending apocalypse. It’s the story of those left behind after the rest of humanity leaves Earth behind on a mass exodus. One thing I loved about this first issue is that there’s a countdown throughout as a world-killing asteroid nears. The story follows a young woman whose separated from her family during a shuttle boarding, because of something from her past. The last few pages show the countdown in single panels leading up to the last page which ends with “48 hours after predicted impact. Asteroid clear of Earth’s orbit.”
