An interesting new story comes out of Dark Horse this week. The tale infuses some subtle mystery with a large dose of science fiction to produce “Pariah”. There is a ton of space-related material already in circulation, but rarely in recent years is humanity the primary scope of the story. I’m not surprised to see the market flooding with material like this after Gravity, and I’m sure we’ll see even more grounded-in-reality sci-fi stories in the near future. “Pariah” #1 offers a decent start, but it offers little in the way of story or character development.

Last week was a decidedly slow week all over the industry, but by comparison June 9th looks to be a very heavy release week for publishers all over as it marks the start of the big Summer push. One of those titles that will be returning is Nathan Edmondson’s latest mini-series, “THE LIGHT”, which is now into its third issue. Beyond the break you can read the first 5 pages before it goes on sale next week. Read on for the skinny.
Already many critics are calling for Nathan Edmondson’s (“OLYMPUS”) newest horror laced offering “THE LIGHT” to be nominated for an Eisner Award, and based on the near sell-out debut of the first issue last month I would say that it is safe to assume the the series is going to be a success. In case you missed it the first time around you can still read the first issue in its entirety, and if you make the jump you can get your first look at the second issue before it drops next Wednesday.

Last week we chose the Nathan Edmondson’s (“OLYMPUS”) “30 DAYS OF NIGHT” style comic, “THE LIGHT”, as our BD Pick of The Week. The title has since garnered quite a few positive reviews from fans and critics alike being called one of the best new minis of the year thus far. That’s why we are excited to bring you the entire first issue of the new series that is beautifully illustrated by “SURROGATES” artist Brett Weldele! Read on for the skinny!
This week marks the release of “OLYMPUS” scribe Nathan Edmondson’s long awaited “THE LIGHT” which pairs the writer with “SURROGATES” illustrator Brett Weldele. The duo have been working together on the project for some time now, and according to early reviews the apocalyptic tale is the missing link between Niles’ “30 DAYS OF NIGHT” and Cormac McCarthy’s literary masterwork, “THE ROAD”. Inside you can draw your own conclusions on the title by reading the synopsis as well as a 4 page preview of the book. Oh, and there’s that whole “why you should care” thing thrown in there, too.
