Everything is Possible

SLIGHTLY MAD




Imagine encountering an infinite moment where death is constant, only to live another moment shortly before the following death. What if every time you die, you actually experience another version of yourself in an Alter-life? Comic Unknown returns to Caleb Thusat's mind-bending series known as Alter-Life. Looking for answers, Jake wanders through the deaths looking for a possibility of finding a life with his deceased wife and child but begins to notice he is being followed. Missing a face and dressed in a suit, Jake sees this mysterious man following him across the lives and deaths. After a specific death where he always wakes up again in his apartment, he experiences something different: someone knocking. Jake peers through the peephole only to see the mystery man once again and freaks out only to accidentally kills himself, momentarily of course. 

While Alter-Life issue two did answer a few questions, it brought us even more than before. The storytelling done by Caleb Thusat is not only an amazing encounter but also a frustrating one. We trench through this unique world with only a touch of knowledge forcing us to claw for more information. The more pages that are turned, the more the art absorbs the readers into the Alter-Life world. With  Katrina Kunstmann on the helm for the art, the shading and coloring start to show the gloom in Jake's inescapable life or lives. Alter-Life is a five issue mini-series that slowly creeps to the final answer of Jake's life and his mind-bending experience.  The best way to get ahold of Alter-Life is via Issue's Four current Kickstarter that can include issues 1-4! Alter-Life Issue two can also be purchased digitally via Comixology and Village Comics' Store or you can support their work on its social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

The Toilet Roll

Serotonin Production



Welcome back to another gut-wrenching review at Comic Unknown. We dive back into the body of Morgan where we find the Organauts working to maintain the best possible circumstances that Morgan gets involved in. So what ridiculous situation does Morgan gets into in Issue two of Morgan's Organs? Afraid of being one roll away from getting kicked in the nuts in a dice game, Morgan panics and swallows the die to cover the results. Now the Organauts must figure out how to digest this white plastic hexahedron through Morgan's body and release it through any means necessary.  Through the process, some have made a game on determining which side the die will land on "upon release" but Morgan must avoid the suspicion from his friends on the disappearance of the die before all hell breaks loose both on the inside of Morgan and the external environment. 


From crazed organauts to unusual "friends", Morgan's Organs Issue Two is a crazy intestinal ride that leaves readers fully satisfied and entertained. The story does not lag as the comedy is humerus and is as uncanny and crazy as its predecessor. Written, lettered and created by Daniel Brodie, this crazed creator delivers us the opportunity to have Morgan's Organs in existence.  Penciled and inked by Robert Jennex and colored by Tyler Kelting, the illustrations are as great as the first issue by being fresh, fun, and digestible with easter eggs everywhere throughout the issue. Successfully funded on Kickstarter on February 28, 2017, Morgan's Organs Issue Two is for a mature audience that is readily available for purchase on their site for $6.00 or you can pick up both issues for 10.00. Make sure to follow Morgan and the Organauts, by following the gang on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Demented Rabbit Hole

Comic Unknown's Mentally Insane
Written by Daniel Farrand
Cover and Interior Art by Johannes Vick
Cover Inks by Peter Palmiotti
Cover Letters by Mike Adkins
Interior Letters by Erica Vick


How would you feel if you found out your best friend was sent to a mental asylum? Alice was just a little girl when it happened and she had nothing but great things to say about her grandfather. Her parents were always busy with work to care for her so Mr. Dyson was there to pick up the slack. Cherishing all those memories she has of him, Alice finds it hard for her grandfather to simply just vanish out of thin air. For years Alice didn't believe what her parents have told her about her grandfather until when one day, her persistence finally came to fruition. Loaded with the information that her grandfather is held in an institution, without hesitation, she immediately stops by to visit him. Passing through the eerie corridors and a horde of unstable people, Alice she finds her beloved grandfather. Filled with questions, Alice still cannot figure out why her grandfather disappeared so many years ago to be checked into a looney bin. 

Will Alice see a darkness inside her idol or will she see her best friend? Written by Daniel Farrand, Untold #1 is a unique horror thriller comic that uses something more domestic as its foundation. At first sight, the story is more of a mystery but as it unravels, it begins to unfold into something more sinister. The Untold uses the black and white format for most of the comic except for certain moments where a splash of color adds an enticing detail to the page. The Untold is the asylum you would not want to step foot in but it is the horror comic that makes you ask for more. Untold Issue One was successfully Kickstarted on August 14, 2016, as well as Issue Two finding its success on June 23, 2017. The Untold is available digitally via Comixology for $1.99.  Below are pages three and four of issue two as the creators are still working on the book.

Enchanted Death

Comic Unknown's Epidemic 



The Black Death was one of the most devastating pandemics to date killing a fraction of the human population on earth. Taking place in the mid-1300s, Europe was facing their greatest hardship and the plague showed no signs of stopping. People were finding their ways of coping either by punishing themselves for defying God or punishing each other. One way or another, people were being buried and numbers were dwindling. The outbreak wasn't only affecting humans but something more enchanted. The Aos Si ('ay-oss shee'), fairy-like beings who possess magical powers are too fading from the world. The prince of the Aos Si, Twylyth Tegg just lost his father to the disease and is now the newly appointed king. Shortly after his father's death, Tegg sets out to find and protect any and all of his people both from the plague and humans. This leads the readers to Danann an English fairy who wants to give humans the benefit of a doubt. She wants to believe the tales told by her godmother how humans long ago were peaceful and endearing. To her dismay,  her home is being annihilated and her friends and family slaughtered by Jean De Moray and his wolves. Danann barely escapes and is injured.

Only with a cloak she found on the muddy floor, she hides her wings from any mortal to see. Weak and helpless as she is, Danann falls in front of a young friar who lost his faith during the Black Death. King Tegg and Warbishop Moray are on the trail of Danann but will one of them find her first or will the friar find out who Danann really is? Plague #1 is a fantastic and well-written narrative thanks to the writing duo of Dennis MaGee Fallon and Jason Palmatier. The well-executed characters and back stories give the series the forward momentum into something that can be magnificent and enjoyable. Zach Brunner runs the visual aspect of the show as the Penciler, Inker, Colorist as well as a creator. His work is spot on as the story progresses and brings the series to life. The artwork  and lettering(done by Dave Sharpe) flows through the story smoothly and provides amazing content on every page. Plague shows a promising and refreshing take for most audiences as it is uses Irish folklore. The Plague issue One is readily available on Comixology for $1.99 and worth the read. Follow their publisher Markosia's Twitter to keep you up to date on all of their comics including Plague and many more.

Crash

TRAJECTORY

Comic Unknown returns to the world of Torchbearer as we jump into issue #3 with the aftermath of the nuclear bombing in Charthulla. To recap from issue #2: Prometheus bombed the planet Charthulla to wipe the rebels from existence. To prevent the government from destroying the planet the rebels had to steal data from the archives. With the help of their double agent, Selene it became possible. Unfortunately, after stealing the data it was too late. Now the rebels need to recuperate but they need something from Prometheus. Cayoti must find a way save those people who were hit by the nuclear explosion. However nuclear bombs are old tech in this setting and the rebels must infiltrate Prometheus once more to find the cure. Will the rebels obtain the information they're looking for and come out unscathed?


The creator/writer Nicolas Dedual did a fine job on this issue, especially with the timeline. The issue starts with fragments of the ending and builds it up. Dennis Calero's top-notch illustration matched Dedual's narrative; the art in this issue was clean and tangible. Currently, we don't know the major roles these characters play and what this war is all about. We still have a long way to go with a lot of story/issues to read in order to find out the end game. Nevertheless, each issue on its own is compelling and it gets us one step closer to the story's apex. Comixology has this issue for only 0.99 cents and to catch up on the series click here. Be sure to follow them on Facebook and their publisher Odd Truth to be kept up to date.

Psychic Street Fight

Action and Adrenaline 




Greetings, SFC Enthusiasts! Welcome back to another ground pound review at Comic Unknown! We have the privilege of returning to the world of Super Fighting Championship (SFC). Issue two puts us almost immediately into a telepathic match between two psychics, Psionica and the Manipulator followed by a match between The Ram (who controls a field of kinetic energy) and The Gentleman (who controls the powers of shadows). While some supers were actual heroes in the past, others had used their powers for their own benefit. With certain expectations on the line as one of the fighters plans on retiring, readers can enjoy the friendship these fighters have towards one another once they are out of the ring. SFC Issue Two continues with the action-packed pace and also gives the readers a more personal look at the characters. It fleshes out their unique personalities as they are hard at work trying to make their living. The issue also continues off with an SFC Secret file of the great Angelica Reigns as well as a continuation of the mini-series Titanium.


SFC Issue two continues with the same quality issue one provided and does not show any signs of slowing down. The story continues in its steady pace while delivering some excellent fighting exhibitions in between. Considering there are more enchanting or scientific battles in this issue, the art is able to use a nice variety of colors and effects to display things such as shadow powers and psychic abilities. The issue is definitely a fantastic read that only prompts eagerness for the next issue. While unavailable to the public yet, SFC Issue two will be on Kickstarter on October 23rd so make sure to follow their Facebook page to keep track of any updates and catch issue one as it is currently available on IndyPlanet for both print and digital and digitally on Gumroad.

Mayor's Youngest Daughter

Sinful Bindings


We open ourselves to an unusual position and encounter a comic like no other. Unlike the usual style and genre in the comic book world, we have fallen into the experience of Fetish Babies Issue One. In a journey of self-discovery, Fetish Babies follows the life of Barbara, a seventeen-year-old who begins to recognize her desire for the world of fetishes. Originally from a small town where anything remotely entertaining is shunned upon, Barbara devised a plan to make her way to where she believes she can explore her needs: New York City. Her motivation soon finds success as she obtains a scholarship to Columbia University in NYC and enrolls to study Behavioral Sciences. Her conquest to obtain her mischievous dream arises as she proceeds to buy her first fetish outfit and make her way to a party at Paddles, a dungeon club where the like-minded people can enjoy their time. Is Barbara prepared to jump into a world she has only dreamed of and take it by the straps or is she in over her head and unready for it?

Created by both Rob and Alyssa Andersin, Fetish Babies Issue One was successfully funded on Kickstarter on February 14th, 2017. Fetish Babies is an all-out unique experience, beginning with the book's format. The tale is told as a blog entry with the narrative on one page and the artwork on the other. As readers witness Barbara unraveling her newly found encounter, one is eager to know what happens next. Concluding with a cliffhanger, the creators leave the readers wanting more. Regardless whether the audience is interested into fetishes, BDSM, or anything related, one can truly appreciate the art by Satine Zillah as it brings the story to life. Fetish Babies consists of 32 pages, replacing the average comic page size with a letter-sized form and is available both digitally and physically (4.99 and 10.00 respectively). Be part of the Fetish Babies experience as the second issue's Kickstarter is currently live and creeping to their goal. Rob Andersin is also the creator of WrittenSins.com, the home for indie comic book creators.
