By the end of 2014, it might be tough to name a comics publisher that hasn't offered up a Humble Bundle deal.
Oni Press is the latest publisher to join the ranks of the Humble Bundle crowd (others include Top Shelf, Valiant Comics, and Boom Studios), though it's put a bit of a spin on its offering of 24 titles and more than 2,500 pages of comics. Buyers can choose to donate the proceeds from their purchase to the charity Direct Relief, an organization helping to treat and contain the Ebola outbreak in Africa, among other humanitarian causes.
This Wednesday Wook Jin Clark destroys much of downtown Atlanta with Megagogo Vol. 001, the debut chapter of his new ongoing graphic novel series from Oni Press. The destruction's a matter of love, though, and it's the kind you could only get from a native -- a native who also happens to love live action Japanese superhero shows. Clark's new story takes the conventions of his favorite tokusatsu and drops them into the city he grew up loving for a compelling original work that moves at the speed of cosmic-powered kicks. ComicsAlliance got ahold of Clark to see what went into launching the new series and to otherwise get to the heart of its mecha-minded action. You can read the full interview, plus a preview of Megagogo Vol. 001, after the jump.
Live action budgets have largely relegated tokusatsu battles to Japan, New Zealand and... Southern California. But thanks to the magic of comics, Wook Jin Clark has successfully brought a brand of superheroics informed by Super Sentai and Mighty Morpnin Power Rangers series to the last place you might expect: Atlanta. This February, Megagogo Vol. 1shows how superpowered martial artists, giant robots, immortal mentors and evil aliens have shaped the city over the course of some three decades -- and more importantly -- the toll it's taken on its three human protectors. Get your first look inside the upcoming graphic novel after the cut.
