He was having a bad enough day to begin with, but when Robin Hood-hacker David Joshua stumbles across a massive government conspiracy, today might just be his last!

David Joshua is a computer-hacker-for-hire who specializes in “equalizing” the world for working people — he erases student loans, parking tickets, and unfair tax debts. Despite his notions of being a modern “Robin Hood,” David wants to get out of the game and go legit by marrying his girlfriend and making his family proud of his life choices. But during one of his final hacking gigs, David stumbles across a hidden IRS database that reveals a conspiracy to trigger World War III. Suddenly, his accounts are frozen, his girlfriend hates him, and there’s literally no one who will take David at face value. His world shattered, David can only trust two things: his laptop, and a sarcastic FBI agent while on the run from a spec-ops strike team whose orders are to “kill on sight.” A 21st-century tale of high-tech espionage from award-winning actor Flex Alexander!


Review: Prophetica #1

Prophetica-000-CoverSet in a world not so different from ours, Prophetica is a fantasy/adventure comic about a society of people on a procession to the Temple of the Half-God. Everyone willingly endures this difficult journey in such a hot climate since they believe they must follow the timeworn instructions of the Prophetica. The survival of their civilisation depends on it.  Their trip should end by sacrificing an innocent child born with one wing but things don’t go according to plan. Secrets are revealed and morality and beliefs are put into question.

Writer, Vince Twelve has created something compelling and I can’t wait to learn more about this fictional religion and the characters involved in it. The dialogue is very important in Prophetica in order to completely understand this religion. More importantly the way in which some of the characters use it order to justify their actions. I read it a few times to make sure I didn’t miss anything because there’s just so much happening. The tone and language of Prophetica are thoughtful, intense and sophisticated. It emphasises how serious this religion is taken by its people.

The art is striking and different from most other comics I’ve read. It’s exotic, alluring and unusual. The constant use of yellows, oranges reds and browns really puts focus onto the desert setting and warm weather conditions. I was also rather drawn to the clothing in Prophetica as the colours of their clothes were similar to their setting and it reminded me of an apocalyptic future.

The characters are very thought provoking, each with their own strong positive opinions about the Prophetica as a religion. Nevertheless the protagonist, whom we become more familiar with towards the end of this comic, very much challenges these views. With a young woman of colour as the main character along with other characters of various races as well, Prophetica reaches out to a wider demographic.

Overall, Prophetica is a fantastic comic. It has a strong plot, engrossing characters with a distinct take on its artwork. It will be interesting to see what comes next. You can name your price, and buy the comic now.
