The first superhero story from the creative team of Claudio Sanchez and Chondra Echert (Key of Z, Kill Audio) wraps up this week with the final issue of Translucid, a story that deconstructs the relationship between hero and villain as we see the final showdown between The Navigator and The Horse. And let me tell you, it doesn’t go down the way you would think.
Essentially, Translucid asks the question, “What would happen if Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s Batman: The Killing Joke had gone a different way?” And that’s exactly what this comic is… with a twist. Whereas Moore looks at the possible origin of The Joker, Team Sanchez explore the origins of their hero The Navigator. This is all established in previous issues, but reading it as a whole with issues 1-6, it not only becomes an homage to one of the most critically acclaimed comic book works, but it also becomes a companion piece.
In The Reason For Dragons, the new graphic novel from Archaia, Chris Northrop and Jeff Stokely explore this idea to its fullest. This is a coming-of-age adventure filled with fire-breathing dragons, knights, misunderstood relationships and bravery at its best.
Wendell is a scrawny, geeky teen who just wants to fit in. Bullied by thugs from school and feeling less important than his step-father, Ted’s, precious motorcycle named Lilly, Wendell is disappointed with life in general. When pushed by two tormenters into entering the abandoned, “haunted” Arthurian fair at the edge of town, Wendell seizes the opportunity as a way to prove his fearlessness. What Wendell finds at the fairgrounds is something he didn’t expect: a man dressed as a knight who believes himself to actually be a knight. As Wendell and the knight, Sir Habersham, spend the night avoiding a “dragon,” it becomes apparent to Wendell that his acquaintance is insane””or is he?
