SEMI-REGULAR MUSINGS FROM THE SEMI-REGULAR MIND OF WRITER J.M. DeMATTEIS
Hey JM, my copy of The Life And Times Of Savior 28 was delivered yesterday. I read volume 1 so far. I first thought about comparing it to The Dark Knight then I thought of Watchmen's Comedian character's life, but as the story progresses, I found that "The Savior 28" is more of a tragic hero and his life a vehicle to draw a portrait of the 20th and early 21th centuries. While it is still a super heroes comics, it is far more grounded on realism than the Dark Knight and unlike Watchmen, your portrait is more favorable to the super-heroes, as in your vision, they would have to bear a a great burden but would still have some decency and ethics. The on off narrative is spectacular and carries a ton of political and social criticism that really amazed me. I have read still volume one though. But already liked it a lot. Superb art. Cavallaro is a kickin' a** artist.
Very glad you liked it, Daniel. S-28 is near and dear to my heart. Check back in and let me know what you think about the rest of it!Today's also the day when S-28 and BROOKLYN DREAMS both become available digitally...thanks to IDW Publishing!
This is good news! Could IDW make a deal with DC to release things like your DC comics ?
I doubt it., Daniel Those balls are all in DC's park!
Yeah does not sound likely honestly thinking... :-( Anyways, Amazon started today to sell kindle books in Brazil. This is the good news. Bad news, the kindle price is still kind of prohibitive to guys like me :-)
I think the ebook world will find a balance in the coming years, Daniel, and things with be more affordable.
This preview was really good. I've started pre-ordering Augusta Wind from my retailer.Happy New Year!
Terrific! Hope you enjoy it, William. The story gets bigger and bigger every issue. It's been a great ride so far.
