Ichabod Jones Issue #3

Ichabod Jones: Monster Hunter

Written by Russell Nohelty | Art by Renzo Podesta

Ichabod Jones is a deranged, mentally unstable psychopath. He’s also on a mission to save the world. At least that’s what the bossy voice in his head tells him. The same voice that led him to be interred in a maximum security mental asylum in the first place. Now, he must escape from the asylum and rid the world of monsters in the midst of the Apocalypse. Of course he’s a  psychopath, so who knows if anything going on in his head is real in the first place.

Viper Comics Fan: Shave Head, Save The World!

Official Press Release

A couple of days ago, Viper Comics learned that one of their readers, Zachary M., an eight-year-old, was raising money for the St. Baldrick’s Charity by volunteering to have his head shaved.

As they say on their website, the St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives.

“Zachary had let us know in the past that he was a fan out our books, especially ‘Battle Smash’ and ‘Hero Petz’ and he’d even go so far as to create his own Fan Art for our Editor-In-Chief’sPic webcomic ‘Cemetery Street.’  When he asked us to help get the word out about his attempt to raise some money, we were completely onboard,” said Jessie Garza, Viper Comics’ President. “You hear all the time about how selfish kids are these days. So when Zachary asked us to help spread the word, we jumped at the chance.  We deal with heroes all the time in comicbooks, it’s cool to find someone who takes that on board and tries to get out there and do something good for others. Especially an eight-year-old.”

So help Zachary hits his target and go beyond. Simply visit his donor page at http://www.stbaldricks.org/participants/mypage/508602/2012 and help him help kids in need.

Viper Comics Takes A Bite Out Of Digital!

Official Press Release

Viper Comics Takes A Bite Out Of Digital!

October 26, 2011 (Dallas, Texas) – This is the year for something old and something new at Viper Comics. Earlier this year, the Texas-based publisher enjoyed an uber-successful relaunch of classic comics Inspector Gadget and Johnny Test at this year’s Comic Con. But Viper will round out 2011 at the other end of the distribution spectrum: digital.

“Digital isn’t coming,” says Viper President, Jessie Garza. “It’s here. Not only has the economy hit the comic business but even our most hardcore fans want to read their comics with the same tools they use to work, create and communicate. Digital has so many possibilities. We just can’t wait to get started.”

Viper is leaping into the digital revolution in two ways. First, they will make their library of existing books-from oldies like Gadget to cult favorites like Middleman-available in digital format. This will ensure fans have ready access to their favorites at any time and a whole new fan base can discover Viper books they might have missed.

And second, Viper will begin to create a new line of comics expressly for digital distribution.

Beginning with Five Senses, a gritty crime story about a murder witness bent on solving the crime while trying to keep the mysterious killer from stealing his five senses, Viper’s entire catalog of comic books will be available in digital as well as paper formats.

“Our writers and artists are stellar,” says Editor-in-Chief, Dale Mettam, “and it’s time to give both our established and up-and-coming creators a new medium to really strut their stuff. We think our fans are going to love what we’ve come up with.”

Don’t worry though if you’re a print lover. “Over the years, Viper has built many lasting friendships with small comic stores. We still have books that will go straight to print on our slate of upcoming projects,” Mettam went on. “However, the digital technology allows us to take more risks with projects and open the door for more up-and-coming talent that perhaps wouldn’t get the chance otherwise.”

“We’re a small indie publisher,” added Garza, “so anything that allows us to push the creative limits is something we’re equally committed to explore.”

For Mettam, this new medium hits close to home as he is the author of Viper’s Halloween digital release, Nightmares in Oz, a modern-and pretty gnarly-spin on the Oz tales we all thought we knew.

Shannon Hilson, of MoreHorror.com said of Nightmares in Oz,

“Nightmares in Oz offers a fresh and frightening new twist on an old favorite. Stunning artwork and truly creepy characters help bring Osmann Grove, Kansas to life in a way horror fans and comic book lovers alike won’t want to miss.”

Additionally, Viper will release its reader app making downloading and launching a comic just a click away. Until then, readers will be able to get a hold of books via iVerse, Graphicly, Comixology, Kindle and the Viper website.

Review – Orpheus


Bookmark and Share

OrpheusI got a very early look at Orpheus from Viper Comics and I’m so glad I did.  The story is one of love and doing everything you can do to get back to that love.  The story’s familiar and involves an escape artist who must escape death after a trick goes wrong.

For years Orpheus, the world’s greatest escape artists, has defied the odds, wowed audiences and challenged Death.  Now, during his final performance Death has accepted that challenge.  If Orpheus is to perform his greatest escape ever, he will have to question everything he knows, and pay a price even greater than he could have imagined.

Written by Dale Mettam with art by Sallamari Rantala Orpheus is part who-dunnit mixed with a familiar cheating death story.  It’s pretty predictable, but somehow still touching and just haunting.  A lot of that is due to Rantala’s art.  It’s somewhat anime but mix in water color all in black and white.  It’s beautiful with an art house feel.

Orpheus is a beautiful tale about fighting fate and death to return to the one you love.  Unfortunately, such tales don’t always end happily and Orpheus learns the hard way that even in triumph tragedy can strike.  A touching story with fantastic and haunting art.
