Adam Among the GODS- Aazurn Publishing

Adam Among the Gods, Aazurn Pubishing. Full size comic, full color inside and out. Art by James Lyle, Story, colors and more by Gary Scott Beatty. $3.99 24 pages.

The story was captivating from the start. The art is wonderful and the coloring really accentuates it all. This is a great comic. The story is one that I think more movies are about to explore in slightly different ways (See Blindness out this summer for one of them.) where in our quest for perfection, there is always a cost. I won't give it away here but this is a very good take on that premise. The reveal of Adam was complete for me and I should have seen it coming but didn't. I'd of not shown that image on the cover if it was me. You see I didn't look at it all that close at first and was glad I didn't since I let the story unfold and they have it sprung on me. Bravo to this team of creators for a very nice comic package. Very cool design to have the book appear to be in the grass and being read by someone. A book within a book.

I have already reviewed Seductions by AAzurn Pubishing, another book I really liked.

Adam gets 5 out of 5 stars! and Gary Scott Beatty:

Not My Small Diary #14 -The Dating Issue

Not My Small Diary #14 (Part 1 and 2) the dating issue. Part 1 68 digest pages, with part two a total of 138 pages of comics. Color stock paper covers with fancy ribbon string binding and attached mini comic size cover to the cover.
Delaine Derry Green has a fantastic package of comics here about true dating stories from 53 artist creators. This marks her 12th year of putting out Not My Small Diary. From the looks of this great body of work here I'm hoping she keeps it up for years to come. A very nicely designed package with comics from contibutors such as: Donna Barr, Suzanne Baumann, T. Motley, Jim Siergy, Maximum Traffic, Andrew Goldfar, Lee J. Green, Sara Gion and many many more. I read these cover to cover and was facinated with all the different stories and art styles. I love it. This is well worth $6 + $1 per set. So I give it a huge 5 out of 5 stars!
