On Sale Now: The Devil in Disguise #1


#21

Very quick review:

First of all, the art is brilliant. Robert Ahmad’s style isn’t what you would normally expect to see in a “superhero” comic, so it definitely makes this stand out from the crowd. The colouring is stunning – is that Ahmad’s work? There isn’t a colourist credited so I guess so.

I have only one complaint about the story, and it’s that there isn’t enough of it. I don’t mean too slow, or too light, or too decompressed. It told its story at a good pace. But the issue wasn’t long enough. It should have been a double-sized issue, or you should have had issue #2 ready to roll out immediately, because while this presents an interesting origin story with a great twist, I feel like I haven’t yet read the superhero comic I was promised. It’s all origin and no superheroing. So get working :stuck_out_tongue:


#22

yep!

Was going for that Daredevil TV show…slow burn…that took 12 episodes for DD to get his costume!

but you’ll see Nate’s in #2


#23

I thought this actually worked for the story. I assumed it was a horror story until the twist at the end of the issue.


#24

Spoilers! :astonished:

:yum:


#25

I fixed mine. I assumed since you guys were talking about it openly it wasn’t as secret. :wink:


#26

Oh i’m only teasing… :wink:
i describe it as the superhero comic you didnt know you wanted!


#27

Fair enough. I must have missed that one. :wink:


#28

i’m still surprised that ive kept the Ether twist under wraps for so long! :rofl:
The twists are gonna get out…so if it happens it happens


#29

You mean that it’s really about how you discovered the joys of vaping?


#30

ha…ive never even tried smoking let alone vaping! :rofl:

Also, never tried ANY kind of drug (apart from booze before someone tries to be smart!)
I’m already like Tigger on caffeine…


#31

I’m joking. Vaping is generally seen as a bit douchy.


#32

Shows how expectations colour things :slight_smile:

It worked for me because all the way through I was waiting for a superhero and instead got a horror story :smiley: .. Which is more interesting than what I was expecting. It’s a great set-up, and completely unexpected.

But I still wish it had gone on further, past the set up.


#33

It all comes down to:
Paying for the art, paying for the printing and the amount i charge.
To do a “double-sized” issue would cost so much more, which sadly being a small press whiz, its outside of my budgets…but more soon…or may i suggest another one of my comics to quench that Garvey thirst! :wink:
