If you’ve read even a couple of these weekly columns, you know I’m a big supporter of my local mom and pop comic book shop. This piece is because of my local shop, Comic Force in Branson, MO.
I went in Wednesday to grab my new comics from my pull box (they pull the new issues of the too-many series that I subscribe to and they’re waiting for me on Wednesdays.
From time to time Gale, one of the owners slips something extra in there for me to check out. This week it was Lady Death Apocalyptic Abyss; a two-issue series from Lady Death Creator Brian Pulido.
This is Pulido’s silver anniversary and he’s traipsing the con’s to meet the fans. As usual, I digress.
So Lady Death is appropriately from Pulido’s Coffin Comics. In fact, Lady Death is the ONLY character at Coffin Comics, so this Lady has her own brand and line. Not too shabby.
Gale, as usual, was right and I loved the two-issue series and absolutely added Lady Death to my pull list so I can get anything new from Pulido and his leading Lady.
Lady Death is damned to hell but leads attacks against the Dark Lord himself and eventually topples him.
Over fifteen million people on seven languages have purchased Lady Death comics. That’s a crazy number for a little guy writing a great book and telling a great story.
You see, that’s why Gale showed it to me. She knows I enjoy the fantasy aspect of it, but she knows I like really good writing and this is well-written stuff.
If you have no idea who Lady Death is, go to her website. Once you’ve figured that out, get over to your local comic shop and grab an issue or four.
Tell ‘em J.R. sent you and don’t be surprised when they ask, “Who?”
If you’ll excuse me, I’m headed to Comic Force to pick up more Lady Death.
What’s Next? Talk with others. Take action.
