Exclusive to BIC

Bounding Into Comics has the exclusive on the cover for the new Chuck Dixon comic that is being launched today.

“Avalon is a great first issue that introduces us to a fascinating group of super-powered individuals who are struggling with their own strengths and weaknesses. The conflicts that will eventually play out are worth being excited for and it’s a great bit of writing and world building overall that allow us to feel as if we’re already familiar with this universe, even as we’re only just introduced to it. You can feel safe in being excited for this one, folks.”
- Nathan Braudrick, Bounding Into Comics

You may notice that we've added an Alt★Hero logo to the bottom of the cover. This is because the success of the new series has already reached the point that The Legend Chuck Dixon and I have concluded the connection to Alt★Hero is of benefit to Chuck Dixon's Avalon rather than detracting from it. Despite being set in the same world at roughly the same time, the two series will remain entirely distinct, with different authors and different art teams producing them.

Our objective is to grow both series over time, gradually adding individual hero-centric and limited-run story-centric spinoffs such as Alt★Hero: Q while continuing the two core series. One of the few complaints about the series has been the sheer volume of characters being introduced, but that is not going to change, as the scope of the Alternative Comics Universe aka ACU requires an ever-growing cast of characters. Going deeper into the stories of the individual heroes such as Vendetta or Shade will require focused spinoffs, which we will certainly create if there is sufficient demand for them.

Considers the possibility of talking to Milo about writing a Rainbow-centric comic. Is amused to consider the myriad of ways that could go so very, very wrong. 

And we haven't even gotten to the military line yet! Headshot, High-Q, Dark Zero, Centerfold, and the Gods of Peaceful Sleep are still little more than rumors to the readers.

Do it! Milo could fill it full of politics because, you know, GLBTQ; and then watch the Comicsgaters go nuts.

A Rainbow-centric comic could go very, very wrong even without Milo's input.

I enjoyed that comic. Nice to see characters act like real people with understandable motivations making in-character decisions that advance an interesting plot.

I also liked the sketchy/clunky artwork for the hero action shots. Has a Batman/Year One vibe to me, or 1960's X-men/Hulk/Avengers. I like to see artists draw strong guys like 1960's square Hulk, not like V-shaped body builders.

Looking forward to what comes next.

Excellent. On a related note, I've twice ordered directly from Ingram (through the CH website). The goods arrived as expected and in mint condition. Logistically speaking, we have a winner!

Just finished a quick read of Avalon #2. Very good stuff! It's full of complicated characters with complicated motivations making hard choices. I look forward to Avalon #3!

I've wondered more than once what King Ace's reaction will be in regards to that bag of loot.
