Molly Danger goes bi-monthly in 2016

Molly_Book_1_colors_rgb.flat_VH1 copyThe time has come. Former Supergirl artist and Molly Danger creator Jamal Igle has launched a new Kickstarter campaign to fund production of a bimonthly Molly Danger series. Igle, a 27-year veteran of the comic book industry launched the Molly Danger series three years ago with a Kickstarter campaign for the first book, raising $50,000 dollars. Igle is now looking to produce a six issue series. This comes on the heals of an attempt to fund book two and an audio edition failed to meet its goal.

The bi monthly series will begin shipping in July 2016 and will keep the same format as the first oversized hardcover. The Hardcovers will continue with Book Two as a 9×12 graphic album and each six-issue story arc will be collected as a comic sized trade paperback. The series will also be available digitally on Comixology.com utilizing their guided view technology.

Molly Danger is the story of Molly, a 10-year-old superhero who has been 10 years old for over two decades. While loved by the public and a virtual star, she’s lived a sheltered and protected life until a new member of her support team, Austin Briggs and his stepson Brian enter her life. The picks up after the first book ended, as the mysterious creator of Molly’s enemies, the Supermechs, returns to wreck havoc in Molly’s hometown of Coopersville N.Y. Igle will once again write and pencil the new book, with inks by Juan Castro.

Incentives for the new campaign include signed copies of both the hardcover versions of Molly Danger: Books One and Two, a print set featuring artwork from Mike Norton, Mike McKone, Agnes Garbowska, Steve Ellis, Jim Califiore, and more, a six issue Comixology subscription for the series which will feature bonus material and even an opportunity to become a reoccurring character in Molly Danger the series and have your likeness drawn by Igle. Stretch goals are planned as well.

The campaign is live and runs until Monday, July 20th.

Wondercon 2015: Molly Danger returns in April!

At his spotlight panel at this years’ Wondercon in Anaheim, California, Molly Danger creator and Action Lab Entertainment Vice President, Jamal Igle announced the forthcoming Kickstarter campaign for the long awaited second book in the Molly Danger series.

The Campaign will officially launch on Friday, April 17th and run for 30 days. Igle will once again team with Action Lab Entertainment and The Audiocomics company to produce both the second graphic album as well as the accompanying full cast audiobook featuring Robin Miles, Lance Roger Axt and William Dufris.

Review: Molly Danger Book One

Molly DangerMolly Danger is the story of the world’s most powerful ten-year-old girl. A seemingly immortal, superstrong hero, Molly has protected the city of Coopersville for the last twenty years. Kept in constant isolation and watched closely by D.A.R.T. (The Danger Action Response Team), an organization created to assist in her heroic deeds and monitor her movements, Molly battles the Supermechs. Molly longs for a real life with a real family. Her life changes when D.A.R.T. recruits a new pilot, Austin Briggs. Briggs has his own motivations for joining the team; newly remarried, Austin is having trouble forming a relationship with his new stepson, Brian. Austin wants to use his connections to impress Brian, an avid Molly Danger fan. However, things change when Molly and Brian form a friendship of their own. She believes she’s an alien whose family died when their ship crash-landed on Earth and before the atmosphere could fully alter them. She also believes that she’s alone, the last of her kind. Everything she believes is wrong.

Molly Danger: Book One: Mighty is the beginning of a fantastic all ages series that features a strong female protagonist and a story that’s fun for both kids and adults. When I first saw this series posted to Kickstarter by creator Jamal Igle, it took me all of a few seconds to pledge to support it. Not only did the initial art shown look great, by Igle’s pitch was exactly the type of comic we should be seeing more of.

Having read it, I can say the comic has it all and sets up what I fully expect to be a fantastic franchise. The comic nails it in the excitement and fun, but still in the center of it all is heart. And that’s part of what’s so much fun and what’s solid about the comic. It’s a comic and story about family that you can share with yours without shame or worry. For as much action there is, there’s equal amounts of quiet moments where Molly isn’t a super hero, but just an ordinary girl. The comic excites and pulls at your heart-strings.

While the  main character is a girl, the comic is perfect for boys and girls with action and excitement that appeals to all. The character and first volume is so much fun I can’t recommend it enough. it’s an absolute must buy, and then share it after you’re done reading it.

Pick(s) of the Week: Coffin Hill #1 and so many more….

COFFIN_Cv1_REV_823iqzml0v_Coffin Hill stars Eve Coffin, a rebellious, teenage lowlife from a high-society family with a curse that goes back to the Salem Witch trials.

Following a night of sex, drugs and witchcraft in the woods, Eve wakes up naked, covered in blood and unable to remember how she got there. One friend is missing, one is in a mental ward—and one knows that Eve is responsible.

After a stint as a Boston cop that ends in a bullet wound and unintended celebrity, Eve returns to Coffin Hill, only to discover the darkness that she unleashed ten years ago in the woods was never contained. It continues to seep through the town, cursing the soul of this sleepy Massachusetts hollow, spilling secrets and enacting its revenge.

Set against the haunted backdrop of New England, Coffin Hill explores what people will do for power and retribution. Noted novelist Caitlin Kittredge, author of the Black London series, brings a smart, mesmerizing style to comics. Artist Inaki Miranda brings his dynamic storytelling to Coffin Hill, following an acclaimed run on Fairest.

Andrew:

Top Pick: Coffin Hill #1 (Vertigo) – Witches are back. FX has American Horror Story: Coven, Lifetime has The Witches of East End, now Vertigo has Coffin Hill. I’m going to check out all three (yes, even the Lifetime show).

Batman #24 (DC Comics) – I THINK this book signals the end of the one-off villain origin issues. ‘Bout time. Looking forward to getting back to Zero Year.

Chronos Commandos: Dawn Patrol #4 (Titan Comics) – I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, dinosaurs and a machine gun toting Albert Einstein, how are you not reading this?

Cryptozoic Man #1 (Dynamite Entertainment) – Comic Book Men‘s debut series. It’ll be interesting to see what comes out when lifelong comic fans become creators instead of consumers.

Star Wars #10 (Dark Horse) – Brian Wood kills it monthly with this series. It reminds me of the original Star Wars trilogy of my childhood.

Brett:

Top Pick: Coffin Hill #1 (Vertigo) – Did you not read the description above? Vertigo is seeing a second (or is it third or fourth?) renaissance with amazing releases that have consistently entertained.

Death Sentence #1 (Titan Comics) – You can read my review here. The first issue knocks it out of the park.

Molly Danger Book 1 (Action Lab Entertainment) – Expect a review later today. Jamal Igle’s Kickstarted series is everything I hoped it would be… and that’s fun!

Rocket Girl #1 (Image Comics) – A teenage cop from a high-tech future is sent back in time to 1986 New York City. Sold.

Superman/Wonder Woman #1 (DC Comics) – The series sounds intriguing and a lot of what’s been said about the series has me wanting to check it out. Writer Charles Soule is talented and proven he can breathe life into series that shouldn’t work, so crossing my fingers.

TPB/Graphic Novel of the Week: Battling Boy Vol. 1 (First Second) – Expect a review this week, but this new series by Paul Pope is amazing.

Scott:

Top Pick: Batman #24 (DC Comics) – It’s been a long month away from the regular DC titles, and I can’t wait to jump back in to Zero Year. Plus, this issue is double the size of a normal book, and while that does mean double the price, it also means double the fun.

Afterlife with Archie #1 (Archie Comics) – I never, ever thought I’d be interested in reading an Archie comic, but thanks to the involvement of Francesco Francavilla on interiors, I decided to give it a look. I’m glad I did, and you will be too.

Rocket Girl #1 (Image Comics) – I don’t know a whole lot about this series, but anything sci-fi is intriguing to me, and Amy Reeder is a brilliant artist that I’m happy to see working on an ongoing comic.

TPB/Graphic Novel of the Week: Lazarus Vol. 1 (Image Comics) – Unsurprisingly, one of the most vital and engaging new series in 2013 comes from two of the best creators working in comics, Greg Rucka and Michael Lark. Do yourself a favor and pick up this first volume so that you’ll be ready to jump in when it returns from hiatus.
