Comic Book: Stained

STAINED introduces us to a bounty hunter named Emma. She is tough, snarky and isn’t afraid of making bad life decisions in general. Her body is also mostly made of metal.

Is she part robot? The first issue doesn’t explain how she got her body or why. We do see her kick a lot of ass!

We are mostly introduced to how she navigates her world and we see her go up against criminals who are bigger and badder than she is. The story is gritty with only a dash of Emma’s dry sense of humor in the dialogue. I love that Emma is a little scary, perhaps not quite lovable but someone you want to respect… from afar. You just hope you don’t get on her bad side.

The artwork of the book is fantastic and the action sequences are strong. The character designs are a lot of fun— Emma is pretty bad ass. And interesting. And cool. I want to know how she got her metal body, dangit! TELL ME HER STORY!

Comic book readers who are looking for a new, different book to read about a woman who has a shady moral code and shiny weapons… STAINED is for you.

STAINED is written by David Baron and illustrated by Yusuf Idris. It will be available on May 3, 2017 from 451 Entertainment. Make sure to let your local comic book stores to order copies!

Fanart GLEE: Deadpool

Deadpool Colors

I know most of you (half of you? Many of you?) are even more excited now about the Deadpool movie after the first red band trailer was released this week. In honor of our favorite mercenary with a mouth, this week’s Fanart Glee is all about Deadpool. I think we can all agree that he is possibly one of the most beloved comic book character. You can’t go to a comic convention without spotting a herd of Deadpool cosplayers… and if you don’t like him, you more than likely do not have a sense of humor. Just saying.

Seriously, guys. Why won’t you just let him love you?

Legend of the Knight features people, who are not just fans but also embody what Batman means to them.
