Hot off of a nearly sold out second printing of their Beyond the Demon series by BOOM! Studios, Black Cape Comics has released their first original cover for their upcoming acclaimed BOOM! Studios comic FOLKLORDS starring Drew Barrymore, Michael Chiklis, and Patricia Clarkson. I'm pretty excited about this book, and I have to say, it looks really good.
The premise behind both books is very interesting. Black Cape is a secret society of super heroes that live in an alternate dimension called the Wildside. This Wildside is populated by super villains that are half demon and half human. The bad guys are usually brawny bad boys with high tech gadget equipment that can control other people's minds. These super villains have been kidnapping girls and boys all over the world and selling them to black cape comics.
The premise behind these super heroes is crazy. The guy who actually names his own comic books "Black Cape" is a guy who wants to rule the world. He's also a psychologist that designs mind games and hypnosis to make people do his bidding. I suppose I would call him a supervillain, but since we're dealing with a superhero, you wouldn't call him a villain.
The story of Black Cape Comics is in between a psychological thriller and a psychological comic book. There's some mention of magic and alternate dimension travel, but nothing that I couldn't find online or in other comics. It was more of a coming of age story set in New York City. The artist that drew this comic has experience in both of those things, so he naturally does both. The writing is outstanding.
There are many talented artists that have put tons of effort into bringing this book to life. The colors in this book are brilliant and it has that "comic book" feel to it. Every page is packed with funny lines and fantastic images that make you laugh. The way in which this book is written gives it a very distinctive look and sound. The voice over adds just the right touch to bring in some much needed continuity.
Black Cape is probably one of the best all-ages comic books on the market. It's a book for everyone. Whether you're a child or a teenager, this is a book that will appeal to you. It's a well-written, excellent storyline filled with adventure and laughs. This is not a book that will turn you off and leave you wanting to keep looking for more.
The main storyline involves a young girl named Kaylee Jones who lives in New York City. One day, she gets a call from her dad who lives down in Cape Town, South Africa. He wants her to go and meet him but she knows that her mom is requiring she go alone. So, Kaylee heads down to South Africa and meets up with her old friend, Doctor Spectrum, and they end up getting into trouble.
All in all, Black Cape is a great comic book. The artwork is top notch and the story is very well told. If you are looking for a quality comic book that is loaded with humor, this one is the one to read. It is truly entertaining and a must-read for all age groups. Don't miss out on this one!
Another thing that you have to like about Black Cape Comics is that the writer, Bob Hale, has created an awesome cast of characters. In this book, you'll meet Shades, Dazzle, Micah and Mr. Fixit. These are characters that really add some fun to the book and really make it worth your while. The one thing that really makes Black Cape a really great comic is the way that it's written. The dialog is great and the storyline is great. It really is one of the best comic books you'll get your hands on.
The last thing that you have to like about Black Cape is that it's not just a typical comic book. You definitely won't find any super heroes here like you'll find in most of the other comic books out there. In fact, you may be surprised to learn that the villains in this book are really realistic and very human. That really adds a lot to the book because you don't feel like there's any super human abilities going on in the book. The villains are very human and you really can't expect anything more from any supervising agency.
All in all, Black Cape is a great book that anyone should check out. The story is great and the characters are really drawn well. If you haven't picked up a comic book in a while, this is a great option that you should definitely take a look at. It's not like the old days where super heroes ruled the world but now you can get into the super hero action with some great stories that Black Cape can be a part of. It doesn't matter what age you are, these comics are worth checking out.
