The only thing standing between the Ironclads and rescuing their kidnapped friend, Peris, is the Citadel, the most heavily-fortified location on Xeru, the army of Armorclads guarding it, and the battle raging between the Citadel’s forces and an army of Legionnaires. Is this the end of the line, or have they come too far to turn back now?

After getting their first taste of combat, the Ironclads realize their construction-class suits aren’t suitable for battle. They’ll need to add some upgrades before they head after their missing leader. Meanwhile, Peris comes face to face with the Alphan Governor and discovers there may be much more going on than mining Pure on the planet Xeru.

Archaia and Macrocosm Bring Steampunk to Monthly Comics with Lantern City

Archaia, an imprint of BOOM! Studios, and Macrocosm Entertainment have announced the May debut of Lantern City, a new ongoing comic series created by Trevor Crafts, Bruce Boxleitner, and Matthew Daley. Written by Daley and Paul Jenkins, and illustrated by Carlos Magno, Lantern City combines the imagination-rich world of steampunk with an espionage thriller, while posing the question: How far will a person go to protect the ones they love? The series marks Archaia’s first ongoing series since the debut of The Secret History in 2007.

The Lantern City comic series is the newest extension of a larger transmedia universe. An illustrated novel, Rise (also available as an app), was published, and a television show is in active development. Lantern City combines the epic scope of the Star Wars series with the street-level intensity and attention to detail of The Wire. The series blends action, romance, unique sci-fi, and political upheaval in an engaging narrative.

In the Lantern City comic series, Sander Jorve just wants to keep his wife and son safe. Living in the brutalized lower class of Lantern City means living in near constant darkness, the enormous walls of the city always looming overhead, while the upper class enjoys the elevated, interconnected towers and airships above. When Sander’s brother-in-law, the persuasive activist Kendal, convinces him to infiltrate the brutal ranks of the Guard, he’s set on a dangerous path that will test his abilities and beliefs, all in the name of making a difference for his family and his caste.

Lantern City #1 arrives in comic shops on May 13th with a main cover by Benjamin Carré for the price of $3.99 under Diamond order code MAR151070. Also available in a limited quantity are a Jackpot Variant by series artist Carlos Magno (1 in 100 intermix), a 10 Years Anniversary incentive cover by Ben Caldwell (1 for every 10 copies ordered), and a retailer incentive cover by Dave Dorman (1 for every 20 copies ordered). Also just added are a 10K Variant cover by Bagus Hutomo (1 in 10 intermix), and a FOC variant cover by Brett Weldele, which can be ordered in any quantity by the FOC date.

Featuring original stories from some of the top names in comics, the first digital issue is now live on comiXology.

The five Digital First issues will be released four weeks apart, and will be followed by the bi-weekly release of single-issue print editions starting in December. The print issues will contain additional backmatter that will appeal to gameplayers, such as mech and map schematics, combat strategies, and a peek behind the development curtain to enhance the gameplaying experience.

Following the success of Hawken: Genesis, the previously released hardcover graphic novel that established the world history for the game, Hawken: Melee focuses on high-stakes action and fast-paced combat in five standalone stories, each presented by a different creative team. The premiere issue features work by Tim Bradstreet, Dan Abnett, Federico Dallocchio, and Chris Northrop, while subsequent issues will feature work by Jim Mahfood, Jock, Nathan Fox, Mike Kennedy, Andrew Gaska, Dan Dussault, Michael O’Hare, Bagus Hutomo, Francisco Ruiz Velasco, and Bengal.

The first two print issues of Hawken: Melee will ship in December and will be available for pre-order through comic book shops starting Sept. 25.

Hawken is a free-to-play, online, multiplayer, mech combat shooter developed by Adhesive Games and published by Meteor Entertainment. It creates an intense and immersive battle experience that captures the feeling of piloting a heavy war machine while keeping the action fast-paced and strategic.

Review – Hawken Genesis

HAWKEN GENESIS CoverOn a distant planet colonized by corporations, combat rages over precious resources, survival, and glory. As one man rises to power, another is tragically ruined in the process. But who will truly emerge victorious in the end? Based on the Free-to-Play online mech shooter Hawken, this original graphic novel serves as both prequel and sourcebook for the game world, offering players a glimpse of what came before the game, and what might come in the months ahead.

I’ve been reading the Hawken free digital comics on comiXology, and have really enjoyed them. Though short, they gave a great feel to the world, they were teasers and acted as such. They did so in a really solid way. So, going into this graphic novel, I knew the general setting (I’ve also been checking out the video game at the same time). I like mechs, a lot, so the setting and battle scenes already had a cool factor to me. But, when I read the graphic novel, I was in for so much more.

The story is a prequel and how the world Hawken is based in got the way it is. The story is fairly simple in rival corporations battling things out over resources and something goes wrong in the arms race. It’s pretty cool sci-fi, but we’ve seen it before.

What really stands out to me is the details and how this graphic novel is put together. In between each chapter (each chapter has a different artist) there’s small tablets or computer screens or cell phones with more details on the world around it. Instead of just getting chapter breaks with some pin-up image, we get richer detail on this world. And it’s a cool world, so I dug learning more. It’s a great touch that adds to the overall package. And since this ties into a video game, that synergy of “technology” helping advance the story works well with the fact it’s a video game. Something just feels right about that.

In fact, I want to see more of that. I’d like to see more synergy of this product. More comics, maybe push a text based story or snippets to fans. There’s so much potential here. But, that seems like something for another post.

Overall, if you’re a fan of giant robots, future worlds, battles between corporations, or a fan of the video game, absolutely check this graphic novel out.
