Paolo, Abby and Tosh lead their assemblage of “disaster tourists” deep inside the Fukushima Exclusion Zone for what they expect to be a (relatively) mundane experience…if radioactive hotspots, irradiated feral animals, and the promise of swift and harsh arrest by authorities could be classified as mundane. But this is an ancient place with no shortage of legends or ghosts. And nobody told the Samurai they were coming! 

Writer Joe Harris (Great Pacific, Rockstars, The X-Files) and artist Sebastián Piriz begin a disaster tour through the worst places on Earth while digging up more trouble than they can handle. In a world on fire and rife with calamity, catastrophe, war, and unrest…you’re going to need the right guides to see it for yourself!

SUNEATER #1

(W) Dylan Sprouse, Joe Harris (A) Diego Yapur (CA) Brian Stelfreeze
Cover Price: $4.99

From actor and entrepreneur Dylan Sprouse, Suneater #1 kicks off a nine-issue saga that takes place in ninth century Norway, where a drug-addled warrior sacrifices his leg to the Gods.  In return he is fused with a parasitic beast, giving him the power to rescue his son from his sworn enemies—history’s first Norwegian king and his five personal guards. The result is a grim and bloody adventure—a dark metaphor for drug addiction, selfishness, and the children it affects.

“I love fantasy-action and I wanted to create something that would appeal to newer fans of the genre while tackling an elevated story,” said Sprouse. “The characters I wrote are from actual tales and bardic songs, and the story is about the adult, dark, grotesque, and somber world of Suneater and its desperate, faulty protagonist. While I have been actively writing Suneater for years, the culmination of the content rings especially true for me now, at this stage of my life.”

BROOKLYN GLADIATOR #1

(W) Dan Fogler, Andrew Harrison (A/CA) Simon Bisley
Cover Price: $3.99

The first of the Fogler’s Fictions titles, Brooklyn Gladiator is a vivid, violent, and frightening glimpse into a fictional future that feels all too familiar, a future we may find ourselves sleepwalking into if we’re not careful.

Welcome to Brooklyn, 2033! New Yorkers survive on scraps in a despoiled America. John Miller is an action hero for the ages, a rough and ready badass who could drink Han Solo, Jack Burton, and John McClane under the table. Brooklyn Gladiator is a tribute to the comics, films, and experiences that have inspired author Dan Fogler.

MOON LAKE: MIDNIGHT MUNCHIES

Review: Disaster, Inc. #1

Disaster Inc #1

A story about tourism when we can’t go anywhere is a weird sort of escapism. A story about tourism to disaster areas feels appropriate. Disaster, Inc. #1 kicks off an interesting concept of a series.

At its heart, the story is about a rather shady individual running a tourism company that takes those willing to pay into dangerous zones they’re not supposed to go. In this case, the series begins with Fukushima, Japan which was impacted by a nuclear meltdown after a tidal wave.

But, of course that’s not all there is.

Writer Joe Harris gives us a touch of the supernatural kicking off the issue with two researchers who meet an untimely demise. Why and how? Well, that’s the mystery we’re going to figure out, it’s just the tourists have no idea that’s what lays ahead for them.

Harris also delivers a cast that’s generally unlikeable. Beyond the abused assistant Abby, all the tourists and the two other individuals running the tourism operation all come off as people I want to see catch radiation poisoning. And that makes the series really intriguing. Imagine a slasher horror film where you want to see everyone die. There’s something oddly satisfying in that.

The art by Sebastian Piriz with lettering by Carlos M. Mangual is solid. The characters all have personality oozing from how they’re depicted. What Harris doesn’t hint at for personalities through the dialogue, we get the rest of the story through clothing and body language. There’s also some beautiful moments full of unease oozing with unforeseen dread.

Disaster, Inc. #1 kicks off a really intriguing new series from a solid creative team. The concept feels fresh and different. It also feels rather timely considering all of the chaos we’re surrounded by. It’s a different sort of series delivering a little entertaining horror to the real world.

In 2011, the worst earthquake in Japan’s history breached the coastal Fukushima Daiichi power plant, causing three of its four nuclear reactors to meltdown. Forced evacuations followed as the event released enough radioactive material into the air, ground, and water to force officials to set up an “Exclusion Zone”, effectively sealing off the land for what may well be the rest of human history. 

But that’s only if you don’t have the right connections and the desire to experience catastrophe, failure, and misery as it really is! Enter DISASTER INC., an underground tourism outfit intent on helping people of means, secrets, and agendas explore the dark corners and off-map attractions typical tour groups won’t go to (and various laws don’t allow). Only Fukushima, known for its famed warrior class and their protection of the land and people dating back to ancient times, is full of deadly surprises and old ghosts. 

Writer Joe Harris (Great Pacific, Rockstars, The X-Files) and artist Sebastián Piriz begin a disaster tour checking out the worst places on earth while digging up more trouble than they can probably handle.
