Hello everyone,

I haven't posted much here in awhile (I used to run Golden Goat Studios with Ray Dillon years ago), but I've continued working on various indie books quietly in the background, stopping in to check in here as much as possible.

Last Thursday, my new comic series SEVEN PERCENT was released by Red 5 Comics digitally on comixology and the iverse app, Comics Plus. If you haven't used either, I'd suggest comixology. So much better. But Comics Plus will get the job done, too. And the book has been one of their featured books for a few days now, so I can't complain there. On comixology, we're featured in the "Digital Firsts" section and we're holding steady at a 5 star rating with 33 reviews currently.

SEVEN PERCENT is a six issue scifi mini-series, and it may very well be just the first arc in a much larger story depending on how well it does out there.

It's illustrated by Reau Wimberly. He's such a talented guy, and if you like what you see in issue one, you're going to absolutely love what he does with the remaining five issues. It only gets better from here.

Here's a link to the book on comixology:

And for those of you who like to know a bit more about what you're getting in to before you buy, here's a link to a review I found for it today. More of these should be popping up, and if you're a reviewer, I'd love for you to read and let us know what you think. If you would like to review it, let me know and I'll supply you with a PDF.



I'd love to hear your thoughts. I've been writing this book for two years now with my partner Luke, so feedback and opinions are very welcome.

If you enjoy the book, please, share it with anyone else you think might like it.

Looks great, congrats on bringing two years of work to fruition :) I bet that is satisfying.

The preview looks great, I'll give it a shot! I love Comixology but I really wish they accepted PayPal as payment.

I have read this, and can vouch for its awesomeness! :thumbs:

Review coming tomorrow, but I guess I kind of gave away my thoughts already, huh?

Thanks for checking it out everyone, and thanks again for the review Evan! In my opinion--speaking here as the writer, of course--I think each issue gets better as the series goes. And I'm not just saying that to get anyone to read it; I wholeheartedly believe that.

So with that said...I hope you all pick up the next issue. ;)

Here's some cool news!


Each Monday, staff writers Kevin Melrose and Steve Sunu discuss their five favorite covers from the previous Wednesday's new comic releases, selecting from among them CBR's Cover of the Week.

This week, Damian Wayne rests in peace, Clint Barton's bad Penny shows up, Richie Savoy takes center stage, Legion gets the first (and the last) word and "Seven Percent" springs a surprise.

Keep reading for Kevin and Steve's favorites from the week of Feb. 27, and then discuss your choices in the CBR forums.

"Batman Incorporated" #8, by Chris Burnham (DC Comics)

Series artist Chris Burnham pays homage with this variant to Alex Ross' cover for "Batman" #676, the first issue of "Batman R.I.P.," the story that moved Bruce Wayne off the game board, clearing the way for Dick Grayson to assume the mantle of the Dark Knight and Damian Wayne to become Robin. Together, the two covers provide visual bookends to not only Damian's story arc but writer Grant Morrison's epic six-year run on Batman. It's interesting, however, that on Ross' original cover, Batman's pose combined with the shadows and folds of the cape to project an even more bat-like appearance, but in Burnham's homage, the yellow of Robin's cape mimics rays of sunlight. The effect is almost angelic. -- Kevin Melrose

"Hawkeye" #8, by David Aja (Marvel)
David Aja has become such a master of minimalism in his "Hawkeye" covers that the lack of white here is somewhat shocking. The artist manages to continue his pattern of impressive minimalism by carving out an image of Penny, Clint Barton's redhead romantic fling, into a solid red background. It's not just Aja's sublime design sense that makes this cover great, it's the subtle details of the image -- the wisps of hair, the smoking gun and the bullet casings on the ground combined with the excellent choice of dress pattern make this one of Aja's best "Hawkeye" covers yet, which is saying a lot. -- Steve Sunu

"The Unwritten" #46, by Yuko Shimizu (Vertigo)

I'm so woefully behind on "The Unwritten" that I have no idea what's going on anymore, but I'm going to guess that's Richie Savoy suspended bat-like on Yuko Shimizu's beautifully rendered (as always!) cover. I love how he's enveloped by the curtains of what's either a stage or a magnificently ornate window (just look at the detail on the angels at the top). -- Kevin Melrose

"X-Men: Legacy" #6, by Mike Del Mundo (Marvel)

"X-Men Legacy" has had some excellent covers, from Mike Del Mundo and the artist continues this trend with an unconventional image -- all word bubbles. The schizophrenic Legion is surrounded by word bubbles from the many personalities in his head with varying fonts and languages. The mass of text makes the design choice to include "X-Men Legacy" in one of the word bubbles even more excellent. -- Steve Sunu

COVER OF THE WEEK: "Seven Percent" #1, by Jarreau Wimberly (Red 5 Comics)

I was caught off-guard by Jarreau Wimberly's striking cover for the debut issue of "Seven Percent," a series I hadn't even heard of. It's so unlike anything else you're likely to see this week (heck, this month), from the black background and the almost-alien glowing chartreuse to the slick, understated logo and the actual image, which certainly leaves itself open to interpretation. (Is that a hand grasping at hair, or contact between a human hand and something extraterrestrial?) I want this framed on my office wall> -- Kevin Melrose
