Why We Love Comics

July 28th, 20120 Comments »

We see ourselves in the characters of these fantastic books.   From Tony Stark, we see ourselves in a man who may have everything anyone could ever want on the outside, yet feel more comfortable inside a cold iron shell, the only place he feels powerful.

In the horror series Crossed, we acknowledge the evil human beings are capable of, with or without a freakishly disturbing virus in them.

Locke and Key, the acclaimed series by Joe Hill, (son of legendary writer Steven King) and Sweet Tooth, by Jeff Lemire, brings us face to face with the need for love, value, and family, in the face of terrifying, uncertain, (and often unfair) circumstances.

We are looking for talented programmers, writers and artists who love comic books, movies and pop culture mediums like graphic novels who would be free to contribute to the growing fan base that is the comic book.
