Some comics are just fun. And in the case of Locus by Adam Black, its fun that goes all the way to guilty pleasure. Hot heroine fights topless with a sword, check. Fun, over the top villains sliced into itty bitty pieces. Compelling, ballsy story, check. Yep you read that right, underneath the stylish, slightly retro Heavy Metal artwork is an actual story you can sink your teeth into and care about the main characters.
Adam’s only be at this gig for a year and a half but has already manage to put eight, full color chapters/issues online and barring a few site issues updates without fail three days a week. The story of Locus’ birth is just completing, a five issue arc that has really fleshed out the incredible world Adam as built. Check it out: Locus
Just noticed that Drowemos of Exiern dropped us a link in his blog so I’d like to welcome any readers that are coming in from there. Feel free to leave a comment or ask questions about the comic.
Drowemos has been a great source of advice for me while I was developing Walking the Lethe. He graciously shredded some of the first scripts for Walking the Lethe and has continued to act as a good sounding board for zany ideas. If you haven’t checked out his comic, Exiern yet I recommend you do for a great combination of wit and eyecandy.
Speaking of Eyecandy, how would you like to get a good look at Astria? I’m proud to preview the first of many supporter only bonuses, a wallpaper featuring a humorous take on Astria, done by Ludovic Mercier, a good friend of mine.
Here’s a preview:
