TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3246:

Today's post is once again on another publication that I 'found' at the recent SDCCI, back at the end of July of this year. What a great place to celebrate my Birthday Week!

Here is what the the creators of the comic book have to say about it on their web site:

"Watch out world! The secret's out. Hitler creates superhuman beings to gain world domination. The whole world finds out and create their own. A fun filled adventure brought to you by Chris Perguidi and Allan Angel. First Printing 2010. Written by Chris Perguidi. Pencils by Allan Angel and Chris Perguidi."

Inks by Peter Palmiotti and Allan Angel

Color Cover. B/W interiors. 28 pages.

Price: Sold Out Shipping: Sold Out.

Sounded like an interesting concept...Here is 'My Take' on the special WonderCon 2010 Edition of HTown #1, which although is technically 'Sold Out', I have a special announcement about this comic book near the end of the review:

Front Cover - A full color comic book cover with loads of characters on it!  Looks like a 'period piece'. This is an 'inviting cover' asking a casual browser at a LCBS to pick it up and browse it...

Inside Cover - Gives the Credits to the those that worked on the Preview issue, along with the web site to go to for more info, and possible purchase option.  Okay start so far...

The first page - Not a 'Splash Page' - as it starts with the action right away.  I note that it is in black & white for the interior pages.

It is a total of 24 pages with action, action, action!  Plus a storyline that can be followed, even with all of the multiple characters in the pages!

BTW, there actually was a 'splash page', a 2-page spread on pages 2 &3.  A really 'Nice' double page spread!  Definitely made me want to read more!


The inside back cover was a full page ad for writer Chris Perguidi's 'The Lizard Zone', which appears to be a pop culture show airing in Gilroy.  I didn't check that out further..

The back cover was the Ka-Blam! printers ad.  Which I see a lot in other self-published comics that are either given to me at comic cons or sent in for possible review...Another good print job from Ka-Blam!  As mentioned above, the interior pages are black & white, with color covers on the outside only.

I found this Preview Comic to do exactly what preview comics are meant to do...Interest the casual browser at a LCBS enough to make them want to be a reader by purchasing it right then and there.

The storyline was one I enjoyed.  But then again I liked the 'Invaders' series from Marvel Comics, the old 'Blackhawks' from DC Comics.  I'm not comparing this series to those. Just letting you know my tastes in period pieces.

The layouts of the panels was fine. Which is hard to do with that many characters to include.  Check out some of the Avengers, or JLA comics for comparison. 

The pencils / inks  were also fine.  This was a well put together presentation.  The only thing missing in a comic book like this was the lack of color.  But then again this is a 'Special Preview' at a reasonable cover price. 

My comic book grade for this publication is a VERY FINE / NEAR MINT, (VF/NM) 9.0 on a 10.0 grading scale.

That's because I truly felt that this comic book would have made a better presentation to the general comic reading public had it been printed in full color...

Well, here's my announcement that I mentioned at the start of this blog post. 

Yes, the preview comic I read and reviewed here is 'Sold Out'. 

However there is a full color comic book that is being released on October 15th, as seen at this link

I have not read the comic book in color, nor have I seen the additional pages in this new version. 

However, I did want YOU to be aware that you can pre-order it now!



Also, if YOU are in the SoCal area, AND are attending the upcoming Long Beach Comic Con (LBCC) during the Halloween Weekend, HTown will be for sale there also.  So there's no excuse for missing this #1 regular version comic book!

Thanks again, Chris, for sharing your time with me at the recent San Diego Comic Con International, AND for bringing this comic book to my attention again in time for my blog readers to pre-order and / or attend the LBCC to buy a copy from you!
