Aspen Announces Soulfire, Awaken Skies, and Artifact One

Aspen Comics has announced their final wave of new releases for their 15-Year Anniversary campaign. The Aspen Wave 3 titles follow the publisher’s anniversary year pattern of bringing back classic series such as their top selling Michael Turner’s Fathom and Executive Assistant: Iris while debuting new properties throughout 2018. Wave 3 kicks off with Aspen’s flagship title, Michael Turner’s Soulfire:

July:

Krul and art by newcomer Chahine Ladjouze and Wes Hartman on July 18th coinciding with summer’s biggest comic book celebration, San Diego Comic Con International 2018.

Celebrating the 15th anniversary of its creation, Michael Turner’s incredible vision of magic and wonder returns for an all-new volume! As the new age of magic continues in the shadows of this future landscape, Malikai and his friends try to enjoy a little down time, but such plans never seem to last. Grace continues to serve as a protector for all things magic, more specifically the dragons, but she is growing tired of having to keep the true power of the world a secret. And, there is a new danger on the horizon, a new figure in the Soulfire universe who may be the greatest threat to the fragile balance between magic and technology yet!

Review: Oblivion vol 1 TPB

oblivion_tpb_v1-1A sequel to the acclaimed Full Moon space western that introduced the world to “cowboys and aliens!” The backwater planet Oblivion has fallen on hard times, but everything’s about to get harder for Marshall Zack Stone with the arrival of Lyz Azorr, the daughter of the notorious outlaw, RED EYE!

Action filled sci-fi meets an alien version of the wild west is the best way to describe Oblivion. While the trade paperback is short, it suits the story well. Writer Tim Seeley creates a solid sense of flow to the story in spight of the changing environments and the continual addition of more characters as the story progresses. I’m curious to see if they continue this series in some way, despite the satisfying ending of this volume.

Despite the western feel the of the story, the art by Romina Moranelli has a more science fiction style to it. Moranelli manages to showcase various alien species, a few alien animals, and few cyborgs in this compact volume and it all fits together. There’s an incredible job showing off the different environments in which the story takes place. There’s a great sense to the details as the style of clothing changes as the environments change.
