DriveThruComics: Liberty Comics, Witchblade & More

Drive Thru Comics have released their latest digital comics available to download:

Fire up the grill, set off some explosions, and raise the flag – it’s the Fourth of July holiday here in the United States! Probably not at all surprising to those of you who know anything about us that both food and explosions figure into our celebrations…

At any rate, I thought it would be a great time to showcase a few titles that relate to the history and concept of America –

Captain Midnight

Born in the blazing crucible of war, but sworn to fight for peace, the mysterious obsidian aviator known only by the codenameCaptain Midnight… flies again!

An ace pilot, super secret agent, and astounding scientific genius, the heroic Captain Midnight ruled the radio airwaves and starred in comic books, film serials and a classic television series.

Now, when we need him most, he has returned, along with his legendary Secret Squadron– to battle spies, saboteurs and the mercenary armies of the evil warmonger Ivan Shark and his delectably deadly daughter, Fury. Join the Captain and his elite air warriors in eleven all-new stories by some of the greatest adventure writers in the world, as they battle evil and fight for freedom all over the world!

Labor & Love

There is a group of compelling, bewitching folk songs that are part of American’s cultural DNA: murder ballads, work songs, sea shanties. Though many of them originated in the British Isles, immigrants brought them here and filtered them through American experiences, making them part of the foundation of American music.

And they are weird. From songs narrated by a bird witnessing murder committed by a spurned lover to a song about a fiddle made of flesh and bone playing the song of its creation, they explore—as Greil Marcus famously dubbed it—the old, weird America.

The songs may seem initially clear, but they’re also impossible to completely understand. Even when you’re looking at them you can’t quite see them, as in a dream, or a nightmare. Listening to them, it often feels that there’s an entire world of meaning beneath the lyrics and the events described that one knows is there but has no hope of accessing. It’s that sense of mystery and wonder and memory that is present in each story in Labor and Love.

Anthem

“It’s not the Star-Spangled Banner, though that’s never far away in Roy Thomas‘ Anthem, due for release with #1 on Jan. 25, 2006, from Heroic Publishing. The series illustrates a darker alternate Earth where Pearl Harbor was actually a massive assault on the U.S. West Coast combined with an attack on the East Coast by Nazi troops.

Thomas said that though the title inspiration came from philosopher Ayn Rand’s book of the same name, he utilized certain elements of the 1814 Francis Scott Key song. Thomas named various members of the Anthem team after the phrases in Key’s tune — Dawns Earlylight, “Rockets” Redglare, Bomb-Burst, and others, all led by a mysterious figure known as Agent 76.” –CBGExtra.com

Werewolves of Wisconsin

The United States has a rich haunted history not often recounted in school. Beyond the Liberty Bell and right under the presidential noses on Mount Rushmore exists a dark and sinister world, which harbors secret creatures, beings both malevolent and benevolent, that inhabit the nation–ghosts and monsters unwilling or unable to abandon the American landscape.

Hitchhike along on the transnational road trip of Werewolves of Wisconsin with excursions to the most haunted American locations, including the home of Lizzie Borden, the Waverly Hills Sanatorium, and the Winchester Mystery House.

Close your eyes through Ohio, purported to be the most haunted state in the nation. Watch out for the Frozen Bodies in Lake Tahoe, the Werewolves rumored to roam a lone stretch of road in Wisconsin, and the Bell Witch of Tennessee. And don’t venture too close to the colonial era cemetery in Leicester, Massachusetts, for as the story goes, the only way out is through Hell.
