The Review Daemon: Ruby Nation

Posted by / in Reviews / 1 comment

Synopsis:

Written and drawn by Neil Kapit, Ruby Nation is a dystopian sci-fi tale of nanomachine powered superheros (and villains), evil scientists, and plots to take over the world.  The chief protagonist, a young woman named Ruby, was a normal college-bound student before some mad-science with nanomachines turned her into a 9 foot tall super with electro-magnetic powers.  She ends up leading a group of similar “post-humans” in a resistance against the mad-scientist conspiracy in an effort to prevent them from taking over the world.  They don’t succeed.

Intrigued? Good.

The Review Daemon: I, Mummy – Volume #1

Posted by / in Reviews / 9 comments

Synopsis:

Written, drawn and colored by Andy Purviance, I, Mummy is an interesting story set in a 22nd century where 19th century predictions of the future came true. Everyone has a flying machine, household machines, and interesting contraptions, but no one has cell phones, computers or internet. It follows the adventures of Jane Webb, a young girl who discovers an amulet with power over death. Which is lucky for her, as it brings her back as a mummy (we are led to believe, at least) after she gets accidentally murdered.

Sound interesting? It is. It’s a retro-futuristic magical adventure!

Synopsis:

Dragon and Goat: the S’Parktacular S’Particles” is an indie comic book written, drawn and produced by Adam Fotos, as a continuation of his comic strip, Dragon and Goat, which ran in various newspapers for 6 seasons. It follows the adventure of the eponymous duo as they visit the theoretical physics lab where Goat works. There, Dragon’s lovable blundering causes science mayhem when the S’Particles (Powerpuff Girls-esque characters based on String Theory) appear. Simultaneously geared towards children and holders of PhD’s in theoretical physics, D&G: TSS is a colorful story written with layers of subtext and pop culture references.
