Hello! A little late with this Roundup, but at least it’s full of good stuff from the old days to read through. Arctic Avenger dominated the past two weeks with re-releases of classic Garry’s Mod comics, while another face from the old days came back with his very first comic. Check it out:
- 04/08/2015: PRODIGY Issue 8, by Connor Bremner. Arctic Avenger kicked off August by re-releasing the last issue ever of a beloved classic from 2007, albeit with some pages missing. One of my personal favorite series, PRODIGY told an original story focusing on a future war between the rising nation of Empirica and NATO. Unfortunately only issue 8 partially remains, but it’s still very much recommended.
- 08/08/2015: Dust Bowl, by RileyB. Another of Arctic’s re-releases this past month, this time an action-packed comic by expert ragdoll-poser RileyB. Set in Iraq, the story follows the U.S. 5th Cavalry “Mustangs” as they aid the British in fighting off insurgent terrorists. It’s aged surprisingly well, particularly for a comic that seems to be from 2005.
- 13/08/2015: Nemi #1, by Nemi. Speaking of 2005, returning PHW member Nemi re-released the oldest comic that he could find, a fairly simple piece that’s still interesting as a relic of the past.
- 13/08/2015: The Angle of Death, by AliasLess. Arctic Avenger strikes back once again with one of his greatest finds. Created by AliasLess, this masterpiece was based on an old PHWOnline meme, in turn inspired by a terrible comic about “the angle of death” (actually a misspelled “angel of death”), who knew close combat. Unlike its inspiration, this is actually an amazing comic, taking the premise of a deathly angle and running with it to hilariously awesome results.
- 18/08/2015: Hybrid Life, by Germantrooper. The latest of Arctic’s re-releases from his old stash, this one another classic from around 2007. Germantrooper’s magnum opus, this comic was inspired by S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl and was unique for being made up of short comics released often, combining to form a 16-part epic.
That’s all for today, but at the rate Arctic Avenger has been putting these out, we’ll soon have more classics to take us back to better days. Thanks, Arctic! There are also brand new comics in the making, and after a long year of waiting, Hercule Cubbage is starting to show signs of life again… so stay tuned!
