TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3273:

I visited with Jamie Gambell at this past weekend's Long Beach Comic Con. 

Which reminded me that I hadn't yet blogged about issue #1 of his 4 issue mini-series that he gave me at the San Gabriel Valley Comic Book Festival in September.

As stated before... At times I do get a little behind on comics / graphic novels that I would want to blog about if I attend multiple conventions during each quarter of the year.

I only blog once a day now at the most... but as you cans see, this is blog #3273 in total, so I do get around to those publications that grab my interest!

Here is what this limited series is about:

Omnitarium is a four-issue black and white horror mini series, written by Jamie Gambell with art by J.C. Grande and lettering and design by Bernie Lee.

Issue one was originally released as part of Indy Comic Book Week in 2009, and several copies of the print edition were sent to stores across the USA.  

Okay...So what is 'My Take' on this 1st Issue?

Front Cover: The illustration shown on the front cover goes with the title of the series.  Good start!

Inside Front Cover:  The credits are shown on this page, with email addresses to contact the creators, and web sites to see what else the creators have produced on their own websites. (We've come a long ways from creators working anonymously from the 1950's!)  

Splash Page:  Truly a Splash Page with a few extra panels to start with, and a hangman's noose 'tying' it all together.

The Interior Pages: The story was presented in black & white, in which the 'blacks' were spotted just fine by the inker.

However, as I read on, I realized that the visuals weould have been enhanced for this storyline if it had been presented in color.  I do realize that color does cost quite a bit additionally when printing.  I'm not a 'color snob', just wanted to point out that this story, if reprinted in a TPB format should be colorized, IMO.

All too soon, the 'to be continued' sign comes up!

There is an 'Afterword' after the last page of the story.  Which gives the readers the background history of why and how this publication came to be. The 'Afterword' is good reading, and I'm glad it was inserted here.

Three pages of ads follow the 'Afterword'.

The Inside Back Cover: Is another ad page.

Back Cover: Is the Ka-Blam ad from the printing company that printed the comic book.

I found that this issue was intriguing enough to warrant looking for the next issue. I would look forward to seeing this reprinted with interior color pages at some future date...  

Thus my 'comic book grade' for this publication is a VERY FINE PLUS (VF+) 8.5 on a 10.0 comic book grading scale.

Here is the link to the web site so that YOU can purchase this comic book for yourself to read!  As well as the following three issues, as the fourth issue is now published.  Oh, and if YOU look closely at that link, you can see that YOU can 'buy' the 1st issue that I've blogged about for 'Free', by signing up at the web site.  You should check this out further.  A 'Free' trial issue before you purchase the remaining three issues to see if YOU like the series.  What a deal!

My thanks to Jamie for bringing this 1st issue of the series to my attention at both the San Gabriel Valley Comic Book Festival, and this past weekend's Long Beach Comic Con!
