Death Sentence Returns with a Kickstarter

The Kickstarter campaign for Death Sentence Liberty starts today, written by Monty Nero with art by Martin Simmonds . It’s the third story in the series and both were fantastic and entertaining reads.

Death Sentence Liberty tells of three characters afflicted by an STD that kills them in six months but gives them superpowers.

Verity’s the beating heart of the story. Frustrated and unfulfilled she longs for something more than cheap thrills and empty sex – to be a great artist and achieve something timeless. With no fuck’s left to give she’s a dangerous maverick rallying against an increasingly aggressive government.

Weasel is a rockstar drug-addict desperate to reconcile with his family and record a legendary album before he dies. His G-plus powers are as unreliable as he is, spreading chaos or comedy – which is why Verity dumped him.

Roots is half-woman, half-plant, and 100% badass – an ex drug dealer using her burgeoning G-plus powers to protect her hood from police and gang violence.

Additionally, Jeb is an FBI agent infiltrating the UK’s top-secret G-plus research facility to steal their secrets – a family man in far worse trouble than he realises.

Monty Nero is an award winning Comics Masters graduate from Dundee University. He co-created the hit graphic novel Death Sentence with artist Mike Dowling (2014), and its sequel Death Sentence: London (2016) with Martin Simmonds. He’s also written for 2000ad, Vertigo and Marvel, including Hulk, Amazing X-Men, and X-men Gold.

The campaign runs through October 2.

Titan Releases a Trailer for Death Sentence

What would you do with superpowers — and six months to live?

That’s the dilemma facing three people who’ve contracted the G+ Virus, a terrifying new STD.

What can graphic designer Verity, failing indie guitarist Weasel and roguish media personality Monty do in the time they have left? Fade away — or go out in a blaze of glory?

By turns funny, dark, sad and spectacular, Death Sentence is an emotional thrill ride through celebrity, loss, passion and creativity. It’s the jaw-dropping next stage in superpowered storytelling!

Written by Montynero and art by Mike Dowling, Death Sentence Collection hits comic stores on June 8, 2014.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Magnus01-Cov-Hardman-NoDressIt’s a new week for comics and we’re helping you make your way through the numerous releases to narrow it down as to what comics should be a part of your buy pile. Below see what we’ve put together as far as 10 comics (and one trade or graphic novel) you should be checking out!

  • Top Pick: Magnus Robot Fighter #1 (Dynamite) – Magnus is back in Dynamite’s revived Gold Key line of comics. Fred Van Lente takes the reigns as writer for this updated take on the classic character. So far, Turok: Dinosaur Hunter, the first release of the line, has been excellent and we expect this to be the same.
  • Avengers Undercover #1 – Marvel’s youngest heroes are back in this continuation of Avengers Arena. We’ll see how Arcade’s torture has changed them.
  • Death Sentence #6 – Titan Comics’ series has been over the top fun. It involves an STD that gives you super powers but kills you in 6 months.
  • The Fox #5 – Archie has put together some super hero fun that can be enjoyed by everyone.
  • Garth Ennis’ Red Team #7 – It’s been a while since the last issue, but this series about crooked cops is so good.
  • Hawkeye #17 – One of the best series on the market. It should be on everyone’s list.
  • Liberator: Earth Crisis #1 – The animal rights series is back, this time with the help from the band Earth Crisis.
  • The Returning #1 – BOOM!’s latest horror series has to deal with near death experiences and sounds too interesting to not check out.
  • Stray Bullets: The Killers #1 – The acclaimed series is back with a new volume.
  • Superior Foes of Spider-Man #9 – I love this series. One of my favorite debuts of 2013. The focus on Spider-Man’s C list villains is hilarious and beyond entertaining.

When a strange plague gives every human being on the planet special powers, it’s seen as the next step in human evolution. But hope quickly turns to terror, as every war, terrorist attack, every crime, every simple street argument escalates a truly horrific point. The world is tearing itself apart – every trouble spot becomes a monstrous war zone and nuclear Armageddon looms. The plague MUST be cured if humankind is to survive.

The key lies in the blood of the only human being who DIDN’T get powers when the plague hit. A downtrodden, recently divorced New York plumber named Michael Fisher. The most ordinary man alive has suddenly become the most extraordinary person on Planet Earth.

Giant baseball players, grannies aging in reverse, a talking Grizzly bear. That’s nothing out of the Ordinary!

Since the first word was inscribed onto parchment, man has searched for tomes that lift the lid on the inner machinations of the human condition and reveal truths about humanity and its place in the universe – there are books that teach, books that inspire and books that offer a glimpse into our very souls. Triumph, on the other hand, is full of violence, bad language, interplanetary racism and a little sprinkling of smut… but you get what you pay for.
