If there's one problem that we as comics readers all share, it's that we just have too much money. Sure, we keep trying to give it to publishers and creators, but sometimes there just aren't enough comics to buy, and that's why we always need more great books out there to pick up. Fortunately, the good folks over at Comixology are doing their best to make that as easy as possible, and this week, those efforts are taking the form of the Image Comics "New Hits" Sale.
A ton of great new Image books like Southern Bastards, The Wicked + The Divine, Velvet, Burn the Orphanage and more have seen their first few issues dropped down to 99 cents each, and on top of that, there's a bundle of 20 first issues for just fifteen bucks.
Daniel Freedman and Sina Grace'sBurn the Orphanagewas one of my favorite new comics of the last year, which was probably a pretty predictable reaction. I mean, I am a dude who thinks of the side-scrolling Beat-'Em-Up video game as the apex of storytelling, so a comic inspired by classics like Final Fight and Streets of Rage, full of bone-crushing action and tag team combo moves? That is right up my alley.
This week, the second series drops, and as all great sequels do, Burn the Orphanage: Reign of Terrorraises the stakes and upgrades the enemies to provide an even bigger challenge for Rock, Bear and their new ally Jess, and that can mean only one thing: Robots. Robots that will be punched.
The first volume of Burn the Orphanage by Sina Grace and Daniel Freedman introduced the world to Rock, a buff, broody street fighter inspired by classic side-scrolling beat 'em up games. With the help of his friends Bear and Lex, Rock, fought his way through drunken goons and stripper ninjas to track down the guy who burned down the orphanage he grew up in.
In volume two, Demons, the action moves in a darkly demonic new direction. Comics Alliance talked to artist and co-writer Sina Grace to find out more about Demons and its leading man, and to get Grace's thoughts on what the macho aesthetic Rock represents means to gay comics fans like him.
