Humanoids’ Ignited Gets Triggered this Week

Ignited Vol. 1 Triggered

Controversial, political and timely, Humanoids H1 shared universe has the comic book industry talking. H1 is a bold initiative for Humanoids, the publisher of some of the world’s most iconic and groundbreaking science fiction and fantasy graphic novels, as it marks both the first time that the Los Angeles-based publisher has released monthly comic books or set out to create a shared universe. This week marks the graphic novel publication of H1’s flagship title, Ignited: Triggered by co-writers Mark Waid and Kwanza Osajyefo, artist Phil Briones and colorist Andrew Crossley, a trade paperback collection of the series’ first four issues, featuring a cover by Humanoids’ Chief Creative Officer John Cassaday

In Ignited: Triggered, the lives of six teenagers are changed forever following a school shooting, turning the end of the school year into a nightmare for the kids of Phoenix Academy High School. Now, only a few months later, they’re expected to get back to their studies, but nothing will ever be the same. Especially for six of them whose newly acquired superpowers won’t be enough to restore balance to their world. Now the choice is in their hands. Will they fight for order…or surrender to chaos?

When Ignited returns with issue 5, in December, two months have passed since the “March of Mercy” events. Media darlings the “Phoenix Five” are using their abilities to bring change. They’re heroes to most–but not to Brent Smythe, an Arizona radio personality pushing conspiracy theories about the kids. He and some new allies are actively hunting them down, and the Five can’t hide from a world full of cameras and connected via social media.

Ignited: Triggered is available in bookstores on October 15th and in comic shops on October 16th. Ignited issue 5, the start of the “Doxxed” storyline, will be published in December.

Review: Vault of Spiders #1

Only a Spider-Army can stop the end of the Multiverse! Meet Web-Slinger, the Spider-Man from the Wild West,. He is the Emissary from Hell, he is SUPAIDAMAN! The Spider-Man from the live-action Spider-Man show that aired in Japan in the 1970s is back. And that’s just a glimpse into the Vault of Spiders!

One of the fun things about the Spider-Man multiverse events is that they’ve delivered utterly insane Spider-Man concepts and allowed Marvel, and creators, to explore their multiverse in a controlled way. Things still have to be Spider focused but they can be a little out there. That has made those events a lot of fun and entertaining. So, I was looking forward to Vault of Spiders #1, a spin-off of the excellent Spider-Geddon and walked away, a little bummed.

Vault of Spiders #1 is an anthology so the quality of stories and art is all over the place. Some are good and others head scratching. What’s good about this issue is there really are great concepts. All are great concepts. The executions though, some were a bit lacking.

Spider-Byte and Savage Spider-Man stand out from the four stories. The first stands out for the concept and creativity, and solid costume design, while the latter due to its fantastic art and twist at the end. Both are entertaining and deliver something a little different.

The Web-Slinger, a western set story, and Final Galaxy Battle!, the Japanese take on Spider-Man each have their charms but also stumble. The western aspect is played up a lot and in some ways entertaining but with the story relying on a twist of a character as far as the bad guy, there’s a shrug of the shoulders where a reveal should shock readers. A connection there is missing. The Japanese Spider-Man, while the art is fantastic reminding me of classic manga, the story is headscratching in every way. It makes no sense. That’s part of the point, I think, but when everything else in the comic winks and nods as to their roots (Savage is straight up Tarzan), this one maybe goes a bit too far.

Vault of Spiders #1 is a bit of a let down but fun to see the various versions of Spider-Man. I’d love to see this as an ongoing with longer stories, the brevity was a hindrance. Like a lot of anthologies, there’s some good here and some bad but if you’re a Spider fan it might be worth checking out.
