The Edge #1 Creator's Edge Press/Ronin Studios Writer and Creator: Marvin Wynn Pencils/Art Director: VuycanKiat Letters/Design: Jaymes Reed Colors: Goran Kostadinoski Reviewer: Robert McClelland
Summary:Richard Tartabull IS a member of the United States Special Units. Ellis Corrosion WAS an agent in the United States Special Units…. And an early test subject for the enhanced steroid “The Edge”. The results that were hoped for: a mindless fighting machine. The true results: an uncontrollable killing machine… “Revenant.” To answer this, Tartabull formed a silent strike team. Their mission is to restrain or eliminate Revenant. This is their story… but things do not always go as planned.
Review:Ohh yeah!! Its time for an all new trip courtesy of one of my favorite publishers. Known as Creator's Edge Press! You may remember my last review from them when I covered Blade of The North Wind, and if that wasn't enough to get you interested in their stuff. Then perhaps their first superhero type book will get you in that mood! The cover on here is pretty neat, and has me wondering if it might be a homage of some kind to X-Force. Because its what it reminds me of somewhat. Mr. Wynn starts us off with one character who's a bit angry at his employers, and promptly expresses it. Although I wouldn't want to deal with the expenses after that bit of rage! VuycanKiat's art, along side Goran's colors really leaves me with no complaints. They are both easy on the eyes and that's always great. One thing that comes to mind when I see the air craft Tartabull and his people use. Is that it kind of resembles a flying bug of some kind. Like a Moth, Butterfly, or a Dragonfly. You'll probably get what I mean once you've read this. Or if you have already, you'll at least get what I mean. Makes me wonder if that was the maker's intent. I find myself rather liking the character called Interim, and its not because of her hotness factor. But more because of the fact she's as far as I can tell, a Red Head. Another point in her favor was her moment of take charge attitude that kept a loony from doing something that would have been of the bad.
Sacrifices are not cool people. Even if you do worship some big time God or tend to drink a lot of the special Kool-Aid. I'm rather curious about a symbol that shows up when she's dealing with the loony. And just why it seems of the bad. And if it somehow connects to how Revenant from earlier in the story is headed in a not so good direction. Speaking of him, he and another character called Blain kind of look similar. Wonder if they are related? Another thing I wonder on, do the Cops and the General Public know about the heroes? Or are they pretty much still a secret? And if they are a secret, why the need when it would be a potentially handy thing for them and the police to work together? And its smart thinking to assume our current bad guy isn't dead. After all, if there's no body then you shouldn't assume that person is dead. Would just lead to some bad karma coming to bite you in the butt sometime later! The team on this book gave us a great start that will leave readers with a few questions in their minds. At least it did with me. And I greatly look forward to seeing if hopefully those questions will have answers! Plus what exactly this potential infection is. Not to mention getting to know more about each team member we were introduced too. Especially with how Tartabull acts, has me wondering if he's got something of a Jerk side to him that some may just not know about. Tartabull, something tells me that despite what you want. Things are going to get a lot worse for you and yours! If you haven't yet, come on down and give this a try! 5 out of 5 Stars.
