TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #4038 - During each year's San Diego Comic Con International I made sure to visit Scott Shaw's booth on the exhibit floor.
I was there on the first day to check out what Scott had for sale. Unfortunately this year Scott was a 'No Show' due to illness.
His son Kirby was to be at the booth. Instead when I made it to the booth, I saw George Karalis, who was running the booth.
I've blogged about George several times before, as he is the writer / editor of Rochester Electronics Publications. That company publishes 'The Adventures of Captain Rochester' which I have blogged about also.
Matter of fact, my youngest son and I had a great time at an off site Comic-Con party a few years back that Rochester Electronics hosted. (See blog #3196 that my son blogged. Then see this link to blog #3208 where I shared more photos from the party, including photos of important comic book creators!)
So I am well aware of the comic book series that George is shown in the photo above holding.
However, I had not seen that latest issue, number 4, until seeing George again at Comic-Con. Scott is the artist of the series, (since issue #2), and George was glad to see that I obtained a copy.
Here are my thoughts on the comic book:
The issue is comprised of two different stories. Both stories are part 2s of stories from issue #3. Oh, and here is the link to where I review blogged issues #1 & 2.
The first story was co-written by George Karalias & Paul Gerrish, with art by Scott Shaw!, inking by Mike Kazaleh. I found that even though it was Part 2, and I had read issue #3 with Part 1 quite a while back... I found this continuation to be as entertaining as the first part.
The second story was also continued from issue #3, and it was also easy to pick back up on. I believe it is the cartoony art of Scott that made it easy to pick back up on.
All in all, this issue was a good read! I like the fact that since this is a promotional comic book, on behalf of Rochester Electronics, that industry tidbits are included on the story pages. That is because 'Rochester Electronics leads the industry in the fight against counterfeiting! Which what both stories in this issue are aboout.
My hat is off to these comics creators. They have continued to make a promotional comic book series into a good read!
I would give this issue a Near Mint (NM) 9.4 out of a 10.0 comic book grade.
My thanks to George Karalis for bringing this latest issue in the series to my attention at the 2015 San Diego Comic Con International!
Addendum: For copies of these four Adventures Of Captain Rochester, I still have a few left at my online comic book shop, ComicBooksCircus.com!
