Brian Buccellato Brings Foster to Ossm Comics

OSSM Comics has acquired the publishing rights to Brian Buccellato’s creator-owned graphic novel Foster. The story is set against the backdrop of late 60’s/early 70’s urban crime movies, and follows a haunted war veteran who finds himself the guardian of a 6 year-old boy being hunted by a shadowy race of brutal creatures, rising up from the darkness.

The graphic novel is written by Buccellato with art by Noel Tuazon, and will be published by OSSM Comics on July 2, 2014. It will be the first time that the entirety of the story will be in print; Dog Year Entertainment originally published five issues of a planned 6-issue mini-series. Foster will retail for $12.99.

In a release Buccellato said:

Foster is such a personal story for me. As a father of a teenage boy, I wanted to write about fatherhood and specifically the male need to protect your child from the physical dangers of the world,. Foster’s trying to forget the Vietnam War at the bottom of a bottle when he encounters a boy who changes his life. Suddenly he has to navigate a world where technology is stuck in the analog ’70s and supernatural creatures and twisted scientists lurk around every corner. Noel Tuazon really captured the gritty, urban horror at the heart of this story.

Review – Tumor


Bookmark and Share

Tumor HC CoverNoir is in as far as genres and to find something unique is a pretty special thing.  Tumor written by Joshua Hale Fialkov and art by Noel Tuazon is the story of Frank Armstrong who finds out he has a brain tumor.

From the Harvey Award-nominated creative team behind ELK’S RUN comes TUMOR, a haunting Los Angeles Noir graphic novel. Frank Armstrong has an inoperable brain tumor that’s killing him. In his final days, with his body, senses and mind failing him, he’s going to do the one thing that he’s never been able to do before—save the girl. After debuting on the Amazon Kindle and holding the #1 spot on the Kindle Graphic Novel Bestseller list for over two months, Archaia is pleased to bring this acclaimed graphic novel to print!

The brilliance of this graphic novel is the blending of what’s going on with Frank’s past.  The tumor has affected his perception of time and as the series progresses the shifting of time and events grows stronger, playing with even how the reader is perceiving the comic.  It ranks up there with the great mind benders as well as the best noir/crime comics.  On top of an amazing story is fantastic art.

Tumor is a must read.  Whether or not you enjoy noir/crime stories, this tale is fantastic and heart breaking.  Make sure to put it on your summer reading list.
