Comics! Renato Jones: The One%

Whats crackalackin my Nerdcore Nation?! Today is the first comic review we here at Nerdcore comics and more have done in what seems like forever! So while we dust off thwe cobwebs on our review writing skills, please, be gentle with us. So up in our first review we have the comic, Renato Jones: The One%. This comic is about as crazy as it gets. The story is of a kid who gets picked up as the heir to a massive fortune. Whether he is or isn’t the heir is debated. After a bunch of crazy stuff going down within the first few pages, we find ourselves in the present and Renato is all grown up and he is at this point loaded. There is also a hit man going around calling himself The Freelancer. This specific gentleman picks off the insanely rich. It is at this point that I’m going to take a step back and explain the situation of the comic now that your caught up with whats going on with the main character. The story revolves around a world whose economy is a caricature of our own economy. The rich are insanely rich and wield their power, influence and money to gross extremes rivaling if not surpassing the likes of Emperor Nero or Le Marquis De Sade.

Lets now talk brass tax. The art of the comic looks like a mix of early to mid 90’s artwork with the coloring of a pulp comic. Being that a lot of comics end up bought and ignored by me simply because of the artwork, I can vouch that though it seems a bit out there at first, it is absolutely amazing and fits with the feel of the comic very well. For the writing and dialog also gets high marks from me. The flow of the comic has a very nice speed and you can tell each character has his or own personality. Not just a few lines and cookie cut it and repeat. The writer, artist and over all creator of the comic, Kaare Kyle Andrews goes to great lengths to state that this is Kaares comic. It is amazing what one man who is driven can do and at the end of it there is a column and before that a letter to the reader. It is the most inspirational thing I’ve ever read as a writer. So for the Nerdcore Score, I give it a 8/10 for amazing artwork, story and writing and whole-heartedly  suggest giving this comic a try.

She Dreams in Digital (teaser)

I started to write last night and what came out was the beginning of an amazing story focusing on a strong female lead, great concept of a cyberpunk future, all around really friggin cool stuff. Then this morning I hop on facebook like most of us do and and what do I see? A trailer for a movie called Ex Machina. Now if you know me, you know as much as I love fantasy, Science Fiction is my home. But as I watched the trailer, Ive fallen in love with this concept. Whats up with female A.I./androids lately? First Ghost in the Shell starring the wrongfully picked Scarlett Johannson (should be Rinko Kikuchi of Pacific Rim fame jus sayin).  Am I on the right track? if so I need an artist for this. Whos down?

So excited and be honest, so are you.
