Dark Horse Collects The Entirety Of Brian Wood’s ‘Channel Zero’

Channel Zero HeaderDark Horse Comics has announced that the publishing company will be collecting the entirety of Brian Wood‘s critically acclaimed Channel Zero comic book series.

Released originally in 1997, Channel Zero was a vision of a future that was not precisely what we hope and dream of. Wood’s first real voyage in the comic book industry told a story that was forward thinking for its time, while still being relevant today. Themes such as freedom of expression, surveillance, media infiltration and computer manipulation are prevalent through the pages of this politically charged graphic work. And readers that may enjoy Brian Wood’s work on other stories may not realize that the majority of Channel Zero was both written and drawn by Wood.

For an entire look at the newly designed cover for the complete collected edition of Brian Wood’s Channel Zero, have a look here below.

Comic Review: Demo #5 (of 6)

Demo #5 (of 6)
Written by: Brian Wood
Art & Cover by: Becky Cloonan
Letters by: Jared K. Fletcher
Vertigo
Price: $2.99
Release Date: June 3, 2010

Brian Wood is a master at characterization. I don’t know what it is about him, but he seems to be able to capture the essence of a character in one issue where it takes many others entire trades to accomplish the same. This is best seen in his series Demo and is definitely captured in the latest issue titled “Stranded.” Not only is the characterization spot-on in this issue, but it also gives the main character a power that I love: time travel.

The story covers Elisabeth, who is very different and alone for more than one reason. As I mentioned before, she has the power to time travel, but the other reason is a little more real to life. Elisabeth’s problem caused her to have problems with her father and leads her to make decisions she regrets later in life, but that’s okay because she has decided to change all of that using her power.

Comic Review: Demo, Vol. 2 #1

Demo Vol.2, No. 1Demo Vol. 2 #1
Written by Brian Wood
Art by Becky Cloonan
DC/Vertigo
Price: $2.99 Release date: February 3, 2010

I generally like Brian Wood’s writing, I generally like Beck Cloonan’s art, and I generally enjoyed the first series of Demo stories that the two creators released a few years ago, so I was looking forward to the new volume of stories.

Unfortunately, I was not blown away by this particular issue. If you’ve never heard of Demo before, the basic pitch is that the stories are about normal young people who discover they have super-powers. Volume 2 Issue #1 deals with a young woman who thinks she may be able to see into the future through her dreams, and decides she has to try to save someone she saw in one of her visions.

One of the things that made the first series stand out was that while the stories may have super-powered elements in them, they were really about the characters in those stories. One problem with this issue is that there wasn’t much effort put into making the reader care about the main character.
