Just like an old-fashioned short before a feature film, The Fez #1 by Roger Langridge (winner of both Harvey and Eisner Awards) offers up a sample-sized dose of action and laughs starring his charming title character.
This invisible (and yet somehow still dapper) hero doesn’t speak a single word in the mini-comic, but Landgridge has managed to fill The Fez with enough personality that he practically pops off of every page. The two vignettes showcased in this launch introduce a character that’s more chaotic neutral than your stereotypical action-adventure lead. In the first story, told from an enemy’s point of view, The Fez presumably rights a wrong and manages to nearly drive that foe bonkers during the process. Really, how could you not appreciate a hero who stalks his enemy (who may or may not be evil) and basically annoys him simply for his own pleasure?

ComiXology has announced a new service called comiXology Submit which could be a real game-changer when it comes to comic book publishing.
The service is built mainly for independent comic book and graphic novel creators. It will allow them to upload their works for free, and, if approved, comiXology will then take over, prepare it, and make it available to the masses so that your work can be seen by many and you can make a profit.
