Rapper turned Superhero: DMC

I am the King Of Rock, Hip Hop, and now Comics. DMC one half of the legendary rap group Run-DMC is coming out swinging. He no longer goes by the moniker Devastating Mic Controller even though he still has those skills. He as a new secret identity now its Darryl Makes Comics.  

A few weeks ago at keystone Comic-Con, we had the chance to sit and talk to the legend himself about his love for comics and his new publishing house Darryl Makes Comics. The flagship comic of that house is his own personal comic DMC. His comics were almost completely sold out in Philly. I was able to grab the second issue, I ordered more from amalgam Comics and am waiting patiently for the awesome to arrive. The issue I have is super dope, but before I get into my review I would like to share the reason why DMC delved into the comic book world.
"I started off loving DC COMICS but was a fan of what Stan Lee was doing over at Marvel. Because he was basing all his heroes out of New York so I identified myself more with Peter Parker, Incredible Hulk, The Fantastic Four all of those guys because they were from the same neighborhood as me."

It opens up as most superhero comics do with the world fawning over the heroes but in this case, they praising the wrong heroes because across town the real hero to the people is actually putting in the work. You see cameras and flashing lights over the model heroes the big three. Spelle former supermodel turned hero whit mystical powers. Iron Eagle decorated veteran with tactical skills. Then its the leader Helios OP superhero jerk with a dark secret and power he doesn't fully understand. They're like if the other big three was all about the money because they are corporately back and probably owned by Billionaire Stanley Staxworth to protect justice and the American way. But across town, a couple is getting robbed until a masked man drops in and saves the day. After he dispatches the bad guys he notices Helios zipping across the sky and follows him to an apartment building that he sets on fire DMC rushes in to save a kid from disaster. 

The next morning DMC finds out its a new drug on the street that gives people powers and somehow the heroes are involved. While investigating he goes into a club that is a hot spot the drugs are sold out of. He runs into the group of thugs from earlier and gets a taste of powerful the drug makes people. The gang gets revenge by giving DMC the same beating he a previously given them. Helios also shows up and set the club on fire which gives DMC a chance to escape. Which ensues is the mission of who is creating this powerful and dangerous drug and how are the heroes involved. To do this DMC gets a sidekick and goes out to save NYC.

First off this is not a 24-page comic this a beautiful graphic novel. The team over at DMC brought in an amazing group of artists and writers to make this come together. Who can tell some of the art styles if you're a fan of the people like 
Humberto Ramos who is an artist for marvel he worked on the Runaways, The Amazing and Spectacular Spiderman
Amy Chu who write for the DC Poison Ivy series

Indie Comic Review: Sol Survivor

Hey comic family Comic Boss from Amerime Media and today we are talking Sol Survivor written by a great team over at Charon Comics.

The story opens up with a man slowly opening his eyes trying to figure out where he is then he smells a familiar sent he then realized
"Oh crap, I'm in the middle of a war."
While looking at a graveyard of soldiers, blood and death everywhere.
As he tries to make it back to the village to some form of civilization he spots the enemy unfortunately for him they spot him too. They let the puppies lose to go play with him. At this time he didn't feel like playing so he started running shot on of the little guys and feel off a cliff with the others.

One of the enemies was as disappointed as I was that they didn't get to play longer. One of them said. “They'll go find some other humans." he friend said
"That was the last one. He was the last human the rest has been wiped out!" As the mysterious man hears this he gives up and allows himself to sink in a river of blood and death.

Fast forward to five years. A group of smuggler's/pirates comes to the now a desolate planet where the human empire fell and was cleansed from the galaxy. Looking for an artifact but first, the captain of the group had to deal with some business.

It seems one of his crew members had been stealing since he brings him on board. And that will not do so they tie him to a tree while they work. Then you meet one of the members who were responsible for killing off the human race and his friend that explains they lost because the humans spread they self to thin across the galaxy and if they were smarter it would be them ruling universe. As they talk a female member of the gang spots someone hiding in the bushes a little scuffle happens and she shoots him in the arm then brings him to the captain who looks like a samurai pitbull. With this new turn of events, the captain asks him
"do he wants to leave the planet with them after their done."Of course, he accepts then ask
"What do I have to do"
"Kill this traitor. If you kill him you take his place on my crew then I'll give you a ride once we're done here" the thief is cut loose both are given knives and a fight to the death happens our main character is cut badly and has a bullet wound too. But, manages to kill the thieving bug and right after passed out due to blood loss.

After they bring him on the ship they take his helmet off to find out it's a human they last one of his kind. Arguments followed up with some wanting to dump him harboring a human is a felony. Others want to keep him to study him. Some wanted to kill him and be done with it. The doctor just wanted to save him which the captain agreed after he came to the doctor realized he didn't have any scars from his battles. The captain told him
  “I'll protect you as long as you're a member of this crew and I'll drop you off once they get back to port. But tell me what is your name"
  ‎As he put his helmet back on he said

"Call me Sol."

If your a fan of SciFi with a post-apocalyptic vibe then this is definitely for you. This one was on my buy list for a minute I missed the Kickstarter so I had to wait until it released but this was such a great story and the artwork is amazing. This is definitely a series I will follow also don't forget Charon Comics has a awesome catalog of comics that are just as great as Sol Survivor I urge you to go check it out
