ComiXology reunites with Comix AF for the newest addition to the comiXology Originals lineup: Fair Trade. Debuting spring of 2019, Fair Trade is written by Tini Howard and illustrated by Eryk Donovan.

To celebrate this announcement, Eryk Donovan will be at New York Comic Con signing limited quantities of the exclusive Fair Trade poster at the comiXology Artist Alley table #1B5. He will also appear in two comiXology-hosted panels – The New Comics Publishing Frontier and The Voices of ComiXology Originals.

Fair Trade isa series for magical girls-gone-bad! Fair Trade is a classic mafia-style story of a blooming prodigy with more skill than good sense, set in a city where inspiration is the trade and magic colors outside the lines.

The 5-issue miniseries will be available on Kindle and comiXology and individual release dates are forthcoming. The series is free to read for members of Amazon Prime, Kindle Unlimited and comiXology Unlimited. A print collected edition will be available via Print-on-Demand exclusively on Amazon.

It’s been 200 years since the human uprising. The NuMan culture has stagnated without diversity, but a secret found in Dr. Cyrus Crane’s original notes could save them all.

Review: Eugenic #2 (of 3)

It’s been 200 years since the New Humans first appeared and became the dominant form of life. Now the human resistance fights back.

Eugenic is a comic where I’m sucked in and already can tell I want more. Only a three issue series, Eugenic #2 jumps 200 years into the future of the first issue to see the ramifications of decisions made there.

The story is a fascinating one in that each issue is a segment as opposed to a continuing a narrative through each. Writer James Tynion IV and artist Eryk Donovan are exploring concepts, philosophy, and society in this three issue series by presenting short stories that hint at the greater whole. It’s up to the reader at times to fill in the blanks as to how things have gone over each time period. This is a comic that challenges the reader to explore its themes instead of just presenting a narrative to enjoy.

Part of the enjoyment is filling in the blanks though.

With 200 years passed between the first and second issue we’re delivered bread crumbs as to what’s happened and we’re asked to piece it all together like the puzzles that are the Numans.

That Numan puzzle is delivered courtesy of Donovan who is tasked with the fun task of a palette of characters that are diverse in a whole new way. Each is unique in their own special way with mutations and contortions that I’d never dream of (or have nightmares of). This is clearly an artist who is going wild with ideas on the page and while you think of what each page teases out you can spend time looking at every detail which creates a story unto itself.

This isn’t a comic in the traditional sense where we follow a few characters along the way in a story. Instead we’re being presented pieces of a puzzle each looking at the ramifications of a decision and the philosophy about them. This is a parable in comic form and it’s all the more fascinating for it.

Baltimore Comic Con 2017: Eryk Donovan Talks Eugenic

When a plague ravages the world, one scientist discovers the cure and becomes the savior of mankind. Hope is restored, and the world rebuilds. But then people who took the cure begin having children who are… unnatural, and the definition of “normal” is forever altered.

At Baltimore Comic Con we got a chance to talk to artist Eryk Donovan about his new comic series Eugenic with writer James Tynion IV.

Review: Eugenic #1

When a plague ravages the world, one scientist discovers the cure and becomes the savior of mankind. Hope is restored, and the world rebuilds. But then people who took the cure begin having children who are… unnatural, and the definition of “normal” is forever altered.

Eugenic is the final volume in the “ic” trilogy of comics by James Tynion IV and Eryk Donovan that began with Memetic and then Cognetic, and all released by BOOM! Studios. Set in the future, the world has been ravaged by a plague and a breakthrough has given hope as the first babies will be born, but things aren’t as easy as that.

Eugenic #1 is the 15 minutes before the credits or the short film made to promote a movie. What you think going into the comic will be different than what you think when you’re done. The opening of the comic in some short text sets things up and when you’re done, go read it again.

It’s a fascinating first issue that’s sci-fi horror at its best and one that can be debated as Tynion and Donovan’s decisions can easily be dissected twenty which ways. From the decision to make the “mad scientist” LGBT, to a debate later about race and what will happen in the series, to the new humans themselves, this is a comic where every detail has been thought through in interesting ways. This isn’t just an interesting narrative, it’s an interesting exploration of concepts and philosophies in many ways and that’s explored not just in the narrative and words, but through Donovan’s art as well.

Eugenic #1 isn’t what I was expected in many ways. The issue is one that you wind up rethinking once you get to the end which is a fantastic reading and story experience. Can’t wait to see where this goes and what this creative team has to say with this series.
