Guest NCBD Picks by Blake Northcott

Wednesday is upon us, and your journey is about to begin. Like the fabled Holy Grail, a shiny new batch of comic books await your discovery…but unfortunately, you cannot purchase them all.

Will you choose wisely – as Indiana Jones did in the Last Crusade – escaping with the coveted treasure, or will you choose poorly, causing the flesh to explode from your bones, leaving nothing but your ash-covered, skeletal remains?

Fear not, noble adventurer – I’m here to help. Here are some of the best comics of the week, and why you should read, bag and board them.

Guest NCBD Picks by Blake Northcott

My name is Blake Northcott, and I have a comic book addiction.

And Image Comics is to blame.

It seems like every Wednesday, an Image title forces me to jump in my car and race to the comic book store, shotgunning Red Bulls while ignoring stoplights and pedestrians along the way. The action/drama set in an all-too-realistic dystopian future, Lazarus, is on my pull list. Breakthrough artist of the year Jon “˜Roc’ Upchurch makes newcomer Rat Queens a monthly must-read. Matt Fraction’s Sex Criminals is one of the most unique books I’ve read in years. And Mark Millar’s Jupiter’s Legacy has become a personal obsession (with issue #3 being the single best issue of any comic I’ve read in 2013).

With that, here’s my 3 hottest New Comic Book Day picks for October 30, 2013.

Kickstarter Spotlight: Assault Or Attrition

Kickstarters abound! I seem to always preface my articles about them with some form of astonishment at how they seem to connect writers and artists to their fans in a much more intimate way – well not this time. This time, I work under the assumption that you know of Blake Northcott, be it through Facebook, Twitter, or what have you. This young lady is taking the comic-loving world by storm! And you are being given a chance here to help her success continue with a Kickstarter for her next book, Assault Or Attrition.

Now, if you aren’t familiar with this Canadian beauty and her nerd-tastic stories, then you are missing out. Her last book, Arena Mode, was a Mark Millar-endorsed project. Not only that, it was the most-funded project in Kickstarter’s ‘Publishing: Fiction’ category for 2013. And this new Kickstarter could easily surpass even that, since she has loads of artists from Marvel, DC, and Image Comics working on the interior art for her upcoming book! We are talking about Mark McKenna, Dave Johnson, Dan Panosian, and many others!

Blake Northcott's Arena Mode Image

Hold onto your hats and purses, folks…this is going to be one helluva ride. Blake Northcott (also known as ComicBookGrrl on Twitter) had some phenomenal success with a Kickstarter campaign to fund her new book, Arena Mode.

Her first two novels were met with praise from virtually every direction and even earned her several different bragging rights to boot! There’s not a lot for me to say that isn’t covered in her press release below, so let me just say this: don’t do yourself an injustice by not reading her works. They are fun, fast, and fantastic!

Continue below for an official press release.

Vs. RealityVs. Reality
Book 1 in the Vs. Reality Series
Written by Blake Northcott
Kindle Edition
Smashwords
Price: $.99
Release date: July 25, 2011

Meet Donovan Cole, pseudo-MMA fighter. Once an undefeated competitor, he is now consistently losing. Armed with his fantasies/dreams of making it big, he can’t seem to grasp that he might not be destined for greatness. After yet another loss, his friend Todd “Jens” Jennum drags him off to an elitist club called Platinum…and that’s where the action begins.

Striking up a conversation with an obviously out-of-place beauty named Danica Davenport, he quickly finds himself on an adventure of which most people only dream. Dia (her prefered name) and Donovan find themselves squaring off against a couple of Collectors, Mr. Heinreich and Goto. As Dia unveils her power to help them escape, it just so happens that Donovan manifests his ability as well. The difference is, she forced hers to work whereas he just willed his to activate. Seeing him as a kindred spirit and obviously gifted akin to herself, Dia takes Donovan with her.
