so the other day i'm having lunch with my friend, nick tapalansky, and i realize--damn! in all the confusion of the past few months, nick's first comic book--awakening--(published by the mouseguard guys, archaia press studios) came out and i never even hawked it here on the blog! d'oh!
well, between you and me, i wouldn't hawk anything here unless i really liked it, and i really like awakening. just in time for halloween, this suburban gothic horror tale will get you going right in the first issue! and issue 2 comes out this week! so don't miss it!
of course, i saw the first issue about six months ago and have watched as nick and his artist/partner, alex eckman-lawn, shopped it to archaia...and got picked up! not an easy feat in these days of timid publishers and even more selective readers!
but if you like horror--and i know you do--here's a little sample of what these guys got goin' on--
and if that piqued your curiosity, pcik up awakening 2 this week at your lcs! (and look and see if you can still get #1...)
