COLLECTS ISSUES 1-6

The valiant Captain Victory falls in battle… but death is only the beginning! His superiors long ago enacted a contingency plan: maintain clone bodies, that — with a memory download — can be sent into space to die again and again. Only this time, two copies were created, their memory downloads incomplete and bodies ejected into far-flung time and space. Can a teenage, amnesiac Victory survive the dangers of 1970s New York City? Can a scarred, hulking Victory survive a hazardous alien landscape millions of light-years away? Born from the fertile imagination of comic book legend Jack Kirby, Captain Victory bounds into cosmic adventure anew courtesy of writer Joe Casey (Sex, Uncanny X-Men) and artist Nathan Fox (Blue Estate, Haunt)!

This boldly experimental volume collects the complete six issues of Casey’s critically acclaimed, star-studded reimagining, plus sixteen pages of never-before-seen bonus material and an all-new introduction by the writer, Joe Casey.

Kickstarter Spotlight: Hugo Broyler: a fast-paced future-noir thriller

Hugo Broyler: a fast-paced future-noir thriller on Kickstarter, featuring a murderer’s row of top comic industry artists from around the world.

Nearly two dozen comic industry super-stars have joined writer Mike Kennedy (Star Wars: Underworld, Superman: Infinite City, Lone Wolf 2100, Dead to Rights, Bleedout) and illustrator Francisco Paronzini (Stormwatch PHD, The Immortal Iron Fist, Dead to Rights, Star Wars Tales) in the launch of a Kickstarter campaign for the original graphic novel Hugo Broyler, a fast-paced future-noir thriller, where smart cars roam the streets and hacking is indistinguishable from possession and insanity.

This stylish, full-color blockbuster is packed full of high-speed action and psychological intrigue, and is brought to life by a killer lineup of top comic industry artists contributing pieces from around the world, including cover art by Eduardo Risso (100 Bullets), and pieces fan-favorites such as Bengal (Batgirl, Naja), Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night, Wormwood, Squidder), Zach Howard (Wild Blue Yonder, The Cape), DJet (Poet Anderson), Matteo De Longis (VOX), Francisco Ruiz Velasco (Pacific Rim, Hellboy), Nathan Fox (DMZ, Haunt, Blue Estate), Ben Caldwell (Prez, Dare Detectives), Rafael Albuquerque (American Vampire, Blue Beetle), Leandro Fernandez (Punisher, Hulk, The Names), Marcelo Frusin (Hellblazer, Loveless), German Peralta (Moon Knight, Axis: Carnage), Max Fiumara (BPRD, Abe Sapien), and Renato Guedes (Wolverine, Superman), Caio Oliveira (Super-Ego, No More Heroes), Daniel Warren Johnson (Ghost Fleet, Space Mullet), and Brydon Everett (The World of Cassyno).

Billed as a high-speed, sci-fi, grindhouse graphic novel, this breakneck thriller paints a future world where frictionless autos careen a ludicrous speeds in the popular sport of Static Velocity Levitation Racing, and international mega-corporations sponsor fearless racing teams who risk life and limb for fame and fortune. When former champ Hugo Broyler wipes out in the final lap of the latest championship, he’s left with little choice but to take wheel work for cash from a local crimelord. But the crash left him with more than just a few scars and a bad attitude – now he’s hearing voices, specifically the ghost of his former, deceased rival. Or maybe someone’s hacking his brain. Or maybe he’s just crazy…

Kennedy and Paronzini seek to raise funds to colorize, re-letter, and print the completed graphic novel, which will be supplemented with an additional 20 pages of world-building story material illustrated by the collection of guest contributors. This extra content will further flesh out the intricate world of cyber-crime, psychological manipulation, and levitation racing revealed in the main storyline.

The campaign offers copies of the book itself in soft- or hard-cover, original artwork, in-world artifacts and merchandise, as well as a mix of 70s/80s style paraphernalia that evokes a retro grindhouse flavor, with a future-sci-fi twist. This is just the first glimpse into the world of Hugo Broyler, says Kennedy, with future chapters, tabletop games, and interactive plans in the works.

Review: Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers #1

Victory01-Cov-FoxOut of the hell of a cosmic firefight, Captain Victory is launched into an epic adventure that spans both space and time! All your favorites are here — as well as all-new enemies to face! The classic Jack Kirby character gets a new vibe courtesy of writer Jack Kirby and art from Nathan Fox, Jim Rugg, and Ulises Farinas.

I can’t say I’ve read a lot of Captain Victory in the past, an issue here and there from Dynamite, and what I’ve read I’ve never been a huge fan of, but this…… this is awesome. Casey throws the reader right into the action bringing the talent he’s shown in so many other series to reinvigorate this one.

Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers‘ first issue feels like a big budget movie with a ship under siege, explosions, a crew running frantic. If this was going to be the series, I’d be happy with it. That part really clicked for me, and I enjoyed it a lot.

By the end of the first issue though, a twist happens, and it’s clearer what that whole “space and time” is about in the description. This looks to be a hell of a lot of fun, and you better believe I’m coming back for more.

What helps Casey is the art. Fox, Rugg, and Farinas bring a style that matches the action, where you can feel the motion of the explosions, and the ship rocking going on. The design for the aliens, layout of the page, it’s all very cool and feels fresh and new.

For me, this is a hell of a start that has me interested in a property I’ve never really had an interest in. When I go into a series like this I expect a galactic adventure, and in this case Captain Victory and his crew of rangers delivers.
