BEHOLD – APAMA: THE UNDISCOVERED ANIMAL!
Yes, I giggled a little bit too when I said it out loud. But you know what, this FREE online comic is worth a look. It is a Kirby-esque origin story that made me wish there was a second ish ready. Benito Gallego does an outrageously good job of bringing this “comic within a movie” alive. I know Gallego from his fantasy art work, but with this project he shows he can play in the superhero realm just as well. The story written by Milo Miller and Ted Sikora is a modern PG-13+ (language and innuendo) version of a classic heroic melodrama. This comic would be worth buying, let alone getting to read for free.
This comic is a film tie-in to Hero Tomorrow (from Swinging Cane Productions), one of the best indie dramas I have seen in recent years. When all is said and done, Hero Tomorrow is a fantastic comic-book-themed movie that outdoes the vast majority of mainstream movies that are marketed towards the fanboy and girl (and yes, Kick Ass, I’m looking right at you)
