Topic: Comic Books - New
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3983 - Last night I had dinner with Barbara Marker and her husband Paul Tallerday. Barbara has a web site / Facebook Fan Page at: BarbaraMarkerArtist.com.
Barbara had called me that the new promotional comic book, Legends of the Goldens: Forbidden Playground, that her husband Paul had published, had arrived, and wondered if I would like a review copy?
Well, I did... And met them for dinner over in Pacific Beach where they live. I also talked on the phone with the creator of the book series, S.B.K. Burns on the phone.
I read the promo comic book later last night...
Here's 'My Take' on the promo comic book.
First, the front cover: Interesting concept on the front cover...
Inside front cover: The promo piece of what the concept is about... This is a promo comic on the new adult novel that is being published by Soul Mate Pulbishing in November of 2013. (Later this month.)
The series is a 'Sci-Fi Paranormal Romance'. Okay...
The credits are as follows:
Artwork by Kamen Chalakov
Story by S.B.K. Burns
Colorist by Barbara Marker
Published by Paul Tallerday
The splash page starts right off with the storyline.
The continuing pages, (eight interior pages in total), carry on the storyline.
Inside back cover: A 'house ad' for another of S.B.K. Burns' projects, this one titled: 'Entangled'.
Back Cover: A 'house ad' for S.B.K. Burn's other project titled 'Getting Them Up'.
Okay... That's it for this promo comic book.
What's my thoughts?
Well... I haven't read S.B.K. Burn's other projects as of yet. Barbara did the front & back cover of Entangled, which I saw a preview of at the San Diego Comic Con 2013.
What I saw here in this promo comic book was a good concept, one that would be probably be fulfilled in the 95,000 word novel that is being published later this month.
There was quite a bit presented in this short 8 page promo story. Enough that I believe that the target market for the book series would be teased enough by the promo comic book to search out the novel that is being printed.
For you to take a look at this promo comic book, I'm going to refer you to S.B.K.'s Amazon Author Page, where her other projects are shown for sale in either a Kindle format or hard copy publishing format. Here is that link. My understanding is that S.B.K. will have a Kindle eBook up soon for the promo comic book, and then a link for her novel.
(UPDATE 11-22-13: S.B.K. informed me that the comic book is now listed at her Amazon site for purchase!).
My thanks to Barbara Marker for bringing this latest coloring project of hers to my attention!
