As darkness falls, the portal lighting the sky stirs the twin’s inner conflicts about their Earther-Tassonite heritage. Zara recounts the dramatic events surrounding the portal’s appearance.

Vin Kayla’s right hand woman, Zara, trains the twin children Rea and Rakkan in sword-fighting. Kayla expresses concerns to Zara that her children have no future in Drakkara given they would be rejected by the people if the secret of their existence is exposed, and asks Zara to take the children away to a place where there is hope of a future for them when the time comes. In the meantime, an assault is launched against the Drakkaran capital by the Portal-men who use the native Zilas, armed with modern Earth weaponry, as their ground forces.

Sci-Fi Meets Medieval Fantasy in Twin Worlds

In January 2020, Action Lab launches a new science fiction fantasy epic in the tradition of Dune and Star Wars, with elements of Lord of the Rings. Twin Worlds explores the conflicts that arise when a mysterious portal leads humanity to an Earth-like planet inhabited by humanoid people.

Twin Worlds is written by Rami Al-ashqar with art by Jethro Morales, color by Bryan Magnaye, and lettering by Lucas Gattoni.

Humanity abandon their Mars terraforming project and become the “alien invaders” when the sky is lit up by a portal to the world of Tassaroth. Finding a medieval society with rich resources, the “Earthers” soon take advantage and subjugate the Tassonite people. Even dragons are no match for their air supremacy. Despite the desolation, a Tassonite prophet has a message for her nation’s leader: the portal is the sign of a greater hope…

Twin Worlds chronicles the journeys of two twin children, hybrids controversially born to a pioneer Earther and a Drakkaran princess. After the Tassonites of Drakkara rebel against the imperialist Earthers who colonized their planet, the twins embark on a journey of survival, caught between colonizer fire, natives who view them as abominations, and a manhunt by warlocks seeking to eliminate their royal bloodline.

Twin Worlds poses the question: what happens when two drastically different worlds collide with all their contrasting rules, races, cultures and ideologies? How would the balance be destroyed and belief systems challenged? What happens when science meets sorcery? What new world order would be established? Most importantly, with all the divisions in the inevitable conflict and chaos that ensues, is there anything that can unite the two worlds?

Twin Worlds #1 will be out January 2020. So start your new year off right with this modern sci-fi, medieval fantasy series. You can order Cover A with Diamond item code NOV191342 and the limited edition Cover B with Diamond item code NOV191343.

Review: Chasing Hitler #1

As WWII draws to an end and the Allies surround Berlin, Adolf Hitler realizes that all is lost. Or is it? Two Allied servicemen are tasked with verifying Hitler’s death. When they can’t, the chase begins!

The idea of another Nazi filled comic honestly makes my eyes roll. The idea of Hitler not killing himself, that also creates a slight moan too. But, it’s not the concept that got me interested in reading Chasing Hitler #1 being published by Red 5 Comics, it’s who’s writing it.

Jai Nitz is the creator behind characters such as the Suicide Squad’s El Diablo and while his name is on the comic, it’s his high school niece Hayley Nitz whose idea sparked the series. It’s this creative team that and their backgrounds that have me the most interested in it all.

Jai Nitz is a talented writer and what I’ve read of his, I’ve enjoyed. Wanting to see if that talent extends to his niece is something that got me to read this. And, it would seem talent runs in the family.

Chasing Hitler #1 is the set up for the adventure to come as we see the wind down of Hitler in his bunker and his plan to escape as well as the two individuals who are tasked with verifying what has happened. While the first issue is a little choppy at times for the narrative, like the conclusion at the end, the story itself is entertaining and flows nicely. No moment is wasted and it all helps build out the two servicemen who are the center of our story. While they are a bit generic in some ways, they have enough chemistry to make things interesting.

There’s also some nice acknowledgement of history. When Germans surrender to the servicemen they’re presented with the prospect of being turned over to the Soviets. Their reactions feel pretty authentic and a nice nod to the reality of that situation (the Soviets reportedly didn’t treat prisoners as well as the rest of the Allies).

The art by Jethro Morales is solid. I really like the character design and the look of the comic as a whole. It feels set in World War II and a different style wouldn’t quite work. This is a good match of style and story.

Chasing Hitler #1 represents the start of a new voice in comics and it’s one that I want to see more of. This is an impressive start with a good concept, entertaining characters, and some solid art. There’s much further to go in the limited series so we’ll need to see if it sticks the landing but this start has me looking forward to the next issue.
