The Auteur- comic (Spears/Callahan/Anderson) -1st issue


I just finished reading the "Premature Release" of Oni Press's new comic series 'The Auteur', and if this series fails to gather interest in the comic scene I will be flabbergasted and disappointed. Fans of commonly recognized Auteurs like (but not limited to) Hitchcock, Kurisawa, and Tarantino will get a kick out of this. Looks like the pre-release of this has been available since around October of 2013.

au·teur (ôˈtər/) noun
  1. 1.
    a filmmaker whose personal influence and artistic control over a movie are so great that the filmmaker is regarded as the author of the movie.

Movie producer T-Rex opens with a drug haze akin to Fear and Loathing, and is jolted back to reality with a cup of hot coffee + cobra venom. He is searching for inspiration, he is looking for a way to get his vision on film. 'Presidents Day' will be his savior, he will make a film that will blow away the critics, he will redeem himself in the eyes of the public after the half billion dollar art film space trilogy disaster he just released.

He will do this with a mass murderer in a Lincoln mask, wielding a bloody axe. He will do this with some strokes of genius, reshooting much of his movie, using his own money, and ensuring his vision is not polluted.

The trippy veiled sub genre references competed against the blatant references to great films like Pulp Fiction. Do not read this as pigeon holed, this comic in not merely a vehicle for film industry fan spooge. The Auteur is going to be one of those comics that influences culture, by riding it in a bareback greasy donkey show with all of us on the front row dressed like Gallager is on stage.

If you think this is up your alley, call your local comic shop and make sure they are going to carry it.

Oh yeah, no fewer than 3 pages with a topless nun stripper on a pole taking confession.
There is a great number of deep sea Angler Fish..

ReBlurb:
Not required, Oni's description does just fine on its own.

Publishers description:
"Fresh off the biggest bomb in Hollywood history, disgraced and desperate producer Nathan T. Rex enters a downward spiral of drugs and depravity in a quest to resurrect his career and save his soul. Over budget and behind schedule on the latest installment of the horror franchise, PRESIDENTS DAY, T. Rex is backed into a corner by bad publicity, a crap project, and a jerk studio exec, but finds salvation at a strip club by huffing glue, and a chance encounter with cable news. Welcome to the most deranged, notorious, and hilarious comic of 2014! We apologize in advance."

AbyssRium (IDLE Idea Factory) + Strategy

Tap games are a dime a dozen in the mobile world. Most (as is AbyssRium) are free with ad-supported revenue and/or provide efficiency cheats in a store.

AbyssRium sets itself apart from other tap games by leveraging a unique concept. In a Synthetic ocean, you are the ever loving caretaker of a talking 'Coralite', which to the best of our perceptions is an underwater volcanic vent. The point of the game is to build strength and vitality for your volcano and its surrounding wild life; evolving animals and fortifying new types of coral. As each element of your world is enhanced, you elicit more vitality from the creatures for use in evolution.
It is easiest to think of your mobile device as the side of a giant fish tank, and you are going to be tapping on the glass. While you were told in life this was bad for an aquarium, in AbyssRium, your Coralite considers this loving attention. It smiles at you, gives on screen hints, and makes a slightly disturbing orgasm face every time y…

Renegade- Martin Luther, The Graphic Biography: Not about the awesome Styx or JayZ songs

October 31st, 1517: Young monk, Martin Luther nails documents to the front door of the Wittenberg Castle Church. On the pages were printed 95 theses defining man's relationship with God and religion. These were tumultuous times and blasphemy is a dangerous game for renegades and suicidal fools anxious to receive the lash.
2017 marks the five hundredth anniversary of this event.  Martin Luther rallied against the Pope and started a revolution in thought that shook the cornerstones of known Christianity. The writing and distribution of Luther's 95 theses, caused ripples in our social structures still in evidence.
