Clover Press and Digital Lizards of Doom Frontman Gabriel Valenin Laucnhe Digital Lizards of Doom: Dizzy Doom Level 1 on Indiegogo

Clover Press and Gabriel Valenin, the frontman of the indy pop band Digital Lizards Of Doom, are combining forces to publish Digital Lizards Of Doom: Dizzy Doom Level 1. This groundbreaking, earthshaking, jawdroppingingly beautiful book is a new take on the visual storytelling medium, with art by Ernie Najera and a special incentive cover by Mark Irwin. It features a foreword by Mike Towry.

Digital Lizards Of Doom: Dizzy Doom Level 1 is based on the YouTube space-fantasy adventure series, inspired by tabletop gaming, video adventure games and Saturday morning cartoon shows. With dialogue and page layout that creates a reading experience like a role-playing game, Digital Lizards Of Doom pulls the audience in with its dynamic storytelling system.

Digital Lizards Of Doom: Dizzy Doom Level 1 takes place in a far-fetched universe where profits outweigh common goodness and the only way out is to win. Part Matrix, part Moebius, and all innovative, this is a book unlike anything that’s been seen before.

Review: Green Lantern #41

Green Lantern #41 Cover“Renegade”! Beginning a new chapter in Hal Jordan’s life as he becomes the universe’s most wanted outlaw! And wait till you meet Hal’s new partner, Darlene – she’s definitely not what you’re expecting!

I’ve read DC’s various Green Lantern series for years at this point, but fell off in recent months as I got distracted, and a glut of comics were released (sadly something had to go). This issue felt like a perfect hopping on point, to see what I’ve been missing, and it’s been a decent amount apparently.

Green Lantern #41 marks the beginning of a new status-quo for Hal Jordan as he’s on the run, a wanted man, and sporting some tech to get him his green glow.

Writer Robert Venditti has been on the job as part of the team dismantling the Green Lantern universe in a way. There was a point, while fun, the GL world was bloated with characters, and rings (it was if Oprah was giving them away). Now Venditti, and the other writers tackling other facets, have pared that world down, stripping rings, and leaving us one hell of a mystery as to what happened to the Green Lantern Corps at the end of the book.

Jordan is again the loner, brash pilot who’s off doing good, but doing it the way he sees fit. There’s a freshness about it, including an updated look for Jordan that I really dig.

Helping Venditti is Billy Tan and Mark Irwin on art. As expected, the art is fantastic. For some reason the various Green Lantern books have been blessed with solid art over the past few years (as long as I can remember). That continues here with aliens that look cool, and a display of action that enhances the writing. There’s some very cool moments that pop art wise.

A fantastic starting point, this issue not only has me excited for what’s to come, but also has me wanting to go back and see what I’ve missed.
