Comic Book Review: Demolition Dark Age

It's been a while since I've had what I'm going to call a difficult review. Sadly, that's what this one has turned out to be. Let me start out by saying that this is a brand new comic book company and clearly, they're having growing pains. Since we've all been there from time to time, you know I'm going to take it easy on these guys.

I met these folks back at C2E2 and they were really nice. Ok, I confess, it certainly didn't hurt when their writer wrote Stay Beautiful on the cover of the book to me. Granted, he might have done this for every pretty girl who came along, but I'm going to believe that it wasn't because I'm a reviewer but...Ok, it might have been. If memory serves, I saw these guys on Sunday when I looked and probably acted one step above a!

Folks, I tried looking online for a copy of the cover of this book or a synopsis, but they just weren't to be found. So, instead, I'm going to jump right into the good, the bad, the summary.

The Good : The art work in this book is really pretty cool. It's well drawn and the colors just pop from the pages. The story of good vs evil, including the descendants of the Four Horsemen is an intriguing one.

The Bad : This book is chock full of grammatical errors and some spelling mistakes. Y'all know this is a pretty big pet peeve for me. As a baby book, I'm willing to give it a chance to grow but it's not going to without a good editor reviewing the pages for this sort of thing.

The Summary : Keep your eyes open for Fantum Breed Entertainment. They have a lot of potential. As for this particular book, I would hold off purchasing it until there's a new printing with the grammar issues fixed. It has serious potential to turn into an awesome series, so don't write it off.

Sadly, I can't point you in any direction when it comes to learning more about these guys or their books. They have a website but it's little more than a holding page at this point. They're also on Facebook, but you have to friend request them. It's not a fan page. As such, I don't feel comfortable handing out that information.

As for me, I'm going to keep my eyes and ears open for these guys. It's one baby comic book company that I feel has the potential to grow up into something really cool.


PS If I receive cover art or further information, I will be sure to come back and update this post.

I received a copy of this book for the purpose of this review. All thoughts, comments and thoughts on how lovely I am are totally and 100% mine and always will be.
