The PATH
Volume One:
Crisis of Faith
by Ron Marz, Bart Sears, Mark Pennington,
& Michael Atiyeh
Paperback: 192 pages
CrossGen Comics
ISBN: 1931484325
$19.95
On a world racked by war, only one small island nation stands unconquered. The Warlord Todosi leads his troops to victory in a great and perhaps final battle, only to be betrayed by the gods. His brother, a monk, vows vengeance before assuming Todosiís station as the new Warlord of Nayado. He must become a leader of armies, defending a land whose traditions he is coming to distrust.
The Path is a new take on the samurai tale, a staple of Japanese entertainment with a growing audience here in the West. In addition to all the action and dynamic artwork that typifies the genre, we have the struggle of one man walking the thin line between honor and duty. Set on an exotic world akin to feudal Japan, The Path tells the story of a man stripped of his faith in not only the gods to whom he prays, but the emperor he is honor-bound to serve. Filled with samurai action and panorama, The Path tells the story of one man's journey and an entire nation's fate. When the monk Obo-san witnesses the death of his brother at the hands of the gods, he swears to have his vengeance by using the gods` own Weapon of Heaven against them. Meanwhile, the emperor teeters on the brink of madness and threatens to lead the nation to ruin. Torn between duty and destiny, Obo-san defies the Emperor and finds himself a wanted man, and not even the all-powerful weapon he possesses can save him. Aficionados of the masterful Lone Wolf and Cub series and the samurai epics of Akira Kurosawa will want to walk The Path.

PAUL POPE

by Paul Pope
Paperback: 96 pages
Nantier Beall Minoustchine Publishing
ISBN: 1882402146
$9.95
"Pope works a wonder by blending Barnum-style showmanship with a heady romanticism."
--The Comics Journal


A life-affirming romance set in the death-defying circus. The latest from young comics star Paul (THB) Pope, a 112 page "graphic album" full of exuberant comics, sharp design, and strong storytelling. Contains four complete stories, in both abundant full color and crisp, clear black and white. ESCAPO is a life-affirming story set in a Fin-de-Siecle circus.

In the three ESCAPO chapters presented here, we are introduced to Escapo, a scar-faced escape artist in love with a beautiful, if distant, tightrope walker called Aerobella. Through a series of thrilling, suprising scenes, we follow Escapo as he strikes a deal with Death, escapes numerous traps, and risks his heart for Aerobella. He's the star of the center ring, but will she accept him for who he really is, away from the limelight and cheering crowds? Or is he wrong to place his trust in someone so young?

The three Escapo stories are presented in crisp B&W, emphasizing Pope's inky-black drawing and emotional storytelling. Preceeding the main feature, is a 9 pg. story in full color, which Pope calls "the Bugs Bunny short before Casablanca". This story, the surreal, hilarious "Hidden Face Adventure", accompanies over a dozen design pages, also in color, which feature art and editorial material lending to the atmosphere of the entire book. "I call this book a 'graphic album' to suggest it is a collection of various, thematically connected elements," says Pope. "It's designed to feel like a really great long-playing album, with ten or eleven tracks all contributing to an overall feel, with highs and lows, moments of harmony, moments of dissonance."

MATURE READERS
From Publishers Weekly 
A singular figure on the comics scene, Pope (One Trick Rip-off) is the rare comics artist who can move between the opposing worlds of self-published, underground comix and mainstream, commercial comics, always producing personal works of imagination with extraordinary graphic skill.
Set in a moodily rendered New York and Paris about the year 2075, Heavy Liquid is an urban love story transformed by science fiction into a bracing, futuristic international crime thriller. It's the story of "S," a former drug agent turned private investigator and petty criminal. He's addicted to heavy liquid, a mysterious hallucinatory substance sought after by different characters for its various properties. A mysterious and wealthy art collector wants it to be cast in a work of art; a gang of ruthless masked gunmen know that it can be used as an efficient, powerful explosive; and an equally hard-nosed government agency knows its shrouded origin and wants the stuff out of circulation. But S's use of heavy liquid (he cooks it up like heroin and puts drops in his ear) produces an effect far beyond its mind-bending high: it seems to produce a powerful, shadow life-form that inhabits his mind and body or is it just a delusional by-product of heavy liquid's potent high? Pope has embellished his stylish love story with heart-stopping action and adventure. But he has also produced a moody fictional essay of urban culture and its organic, pervasive amalgamation with technology. Pope's drawing and page design (the book is printed in three eerily manipulated colors) is both technically assured and wonderfully expressive.
