Review: The Realm #1

Fifteen years ago, our world was overrun by creatures of myth; orcs, dragons, and other nameless horrors threw the entire planet into total chaos. Today, the shattered remnants of civilization must fight just to survive in a deadly new era of violence and mayhem. While a powerful sorcerer marshals his forces, a group of warriors embark on a journey to reclaim our world from the growing darkness.

A post-apocalyptic fantasy, western, is probably the simplest way to summarise The Realm the new series co-created by Seth M. Peck and Jeremy Haun. After some sort of apocalypse, humanity has returned to a medieval like society in order to survive. Enter Will Nolan, an escort/bounty hunter/bodyguard who seems to thrive in this new world. I’m curious to see where this story manages to go forward, and how they explore this strange world which is a mix of fantasy and zombie apocalypse.

The Realm‘s artwork manages to balance violence, action, and a dark atmosphere well. There’s a good amount of flowing action scenes throughout and the issue keeps readers on their toes. We’re also briefly introduced to two mysterious unnamed characters, a sorcerer, and a barbarian warrior, each with a real world vibe to them but at the same time mixing in fantasy tropes. The world is an interesting landscape with art that’s full of details giving us hints about this world and telling it’s own story.

The first issue is a solid start of what is sure to be the next hit that everyone will want. A great beginning and a great mix of genres.

The Beauty, Volume 1 is an Infectiously Good Read

The Beauty Volume 1Writer/artist Jeremy Haun teams up with co-writer Jason A. Hurley for the engrossing drama, The Beauty, Volume 1. This collects issues #1-6 into trade paperback and will be available this March.

In The Beauty, Volume 1, a sexually-transmitted disease aggressively spreads across the world. But this is one disease people actually want to catch: a disease that makes those infected physically beautiful. Two years after the Beauty burst onto the scene, over half of America is infected. Now, it looks like the downside may be far worse than anyone suspected. Detectives Vaughn and Foster find themselves on the front line of the battle against the Beauty, embroiled in a conspiracy they never knew existed.

The Beauty, Volume 1 (ISBN 978-1-63215-550-4) hits comic book stores on Wednesday, March 23rd and bookstores on Tuesday, March 29th, and will be available for $9.99.

Review: The Beauty #1

TheBeauty 1 coverVitamins and supplements are a big industry throughout the world as everyone craves perfection. Health and fitness have become paramount in the news, as celebrities’ flaws are magnified and the most disciplined, their health regiments are duplicated through various books and DVDS. Imagine a world where we can just take a pill and become our best selves? can such a thing exist? This is the question that is explored in Jeremy Haun, John Rauch, and Jason Hurley’s The Beauty.

The Beauty opens up with background on a certain sexually transmitted disease, which had actually positive effects, as the thought bubble narration clearly says” FAT MELTED AWAY , THINNING HAIR RETURNED, SKIN BLEMISHES FADED, AND FACIAL FEATURES SLIMMED.” This disease quickly becomes a fad, as it seemed as though it had no negative effects at all, and everyone was trying to catch it. Eventually it becomes an epidemic, and over half of the population becomes infected, as those who are infected, are labeled “beauties”. This creates special interest groups who range from the publically outspoken to the downright violent as within the first few pages; someone gets killed from an implosion.

The police investigate this latest death with much trepidation, as the NYPD, has set up their own Beauty Task Force, and are beginning to think this more than just another random Beauty killing, as the CDC gets involved. The task force, starts unraveling the case, clue by clue. They eventually run into a perpetrator who may have the answer to everything, but something unfortunate happens. The issue ends with another person being infected with the “Beauty”, and someone no one expected it to happen to.

The creative forces behind this comic are more than a force to be reckoned with. The story by Jason Haun is a beautiful of crime procedural with dystopian science fiction, in Haun’s refreshing style. The art by John Rauch and Jason Hurley is elegant yet raw, style most welcome in this genre. Overall, an excellent first issue for a series that seems to be most ambitious series Image has undertaken in a while.
