Dark Moon Comic
Title: Dark Moon #1
Story By: Freematik
Art By: Benedick Bana
Overview: Dark Moon Comic is a very interesting horror/sci-fi comic. The story follows a group of seven survivors who are fleeing Earth from a massive asteroid collision which leaves California in ruins. A scientist named Dante, with the help of his teleporter, sends the group to a recently discovered moon. Here they encounter a group of hostile aliens and to make matters worse, the air supply is questionable. Luckily they find a door that shelters them from an onslaught ambush.
Benedict Bana’s art is dark and perfectly fits the horror theme. The painting style creates characters which jump out of the page especially notable when the aliens attack. It was gruesomely terrifying when an alien turned Kevin into a delicious Fruit Gusher…sweet.
While the comic is certainly good, it was difficult to invest effort into the characters who fell by the wayside. There wasn’t enough time to establish characters other than “Dante,” however, this looks to be fixed in the next issue. All in all I would say this is a good series and I am proud to know the creator Freematik.
Brendan Hughes is what you might call a professional nerd of sorts, a connoisseur of comic books ranging from the “Big 3” (Marvel, DC, and Dark Horse) to the more indie side of things. By night he is the co-host of East Meets West, Flame Hawk, a radio/podcast which breaks down the latest news of the Nerd and Otaku universe.
The comic spider first bit Brendan at the young age of five, establishing his love of comic lore and the comic realm. This love led him to become a part of the comic community and to doing comic reviews and news through East Meets West.
