Topic: Comic Books - New
TODAY'S FEATURE IS (GUEST) BLOG #3945 - Still catching up with my comic book reviews this week...
This comic book was also received at the recent 2013 Comic-Con International: San Diego, (aka SDCC).
At the top right is a photo of the creators holding a copy of this comic book, Telikos Protocol issue #2.
I've previously blogged about this new comic book series, starting back in May of 2013. It was in Blog #3853, where I reviewed issue #1 that I received at the 2013 Free Comic Book Day event in Rancho Cucamonga.
So what is this series about? Here's what the publisher says on their web site:
"Earth has been left barren by environmental collapse, humanity is on the brink of extinction, recovered alien technology the only hope left for its underground population. When the alien race returns to Earth, leaving destruction in their wake and a city in ruins, it falls to Steve Forrester, a soldier fighting to clear his name for an unspeakable crime, his partner Lily Goldstein and scientist John Santilli to try and save the human race."
What's My Take on this 2nd issue?
Front cover - Pretty cool graphics... You can see this is a sci-fi tale just from the front cover.
Inside front cover - The credits page, along with their Facebook & Twitter urls.
Splash page - Cool overhead shot. Starts the action right off!
Interior pages - 44 pages in this issue! The artwork is as good as the first issue. The word balloons are minimal in usage, but the storyline flows well. There are no caption boxes. Just dialogue word balloons. This storyline is captivating.
Inside back cover - Full page spread for issue #3 that is "coming soon". My understanding is that it is projected to be available in October. Possible release date is October 10th at the New York Comic Con where the publisher will have a booth.
Back cover - Basically a full page ad on where you can follow this comic book series.
My understanding is that this series is a proposed nine issue series. That could be a long series to keep up the interest, but the first two issues were pretty darn good!
As for my comic book grade for this issue... I'm giving it a Near Mint Minus (NM-) 9.2 out of a possible 10.0 comic book grading scale.
I see issue #1 for sale at this web site. I don't see where issue #2 is listed for sale. You might ask your LCBS for a copy to be ordered.
You can follow updates on this comic book series at their Facebook Fan Page.
My thanks to the creators for bringing this second issue to my attention at Comic-Con!
