My Iron Man or iron Kid. It’s been a while since I picked up the pens, so this was good for me. Drawn in my sketch book in inks and coloured in pro markers. Scanned and leveled in GIMP!
Its Halloween, and Walking Dead TV series starts in US today! In the UK next week I think! You can read issue #1 for free on your iPhone or iPad or you can read it online for nothing too!
Rick Grimes, Sheriff of a small town in Kentucky awakes in a hospital. Comatose after being shot while on duty, Rick finds the world abandoned of all things living and is faced with walking undead, who attack him on sight. He returns home to find his family, son Carl and wife Lori, gone. He meets his new neighbor, who points him towards Atlanta. After retrieving supplies from the abandoned Police Station, Rick sets off to Atlanta to search for his family.

Following from last month, it seems that Image Comic’s Zombie series is continuing on a day and date digital/print release!

So here are my downloads for this week. I am getting close to being totally up to speed on Invincible!

Image Comics have updated their iPhone app and added the following series:
- Cowboy Ninja Viking #1-#3
- Existence 3.0 #1-#3 of 4
- PVP #1-#2
- Singularity #1-#2
- Tasty Bullet
- Tiffany’s Epiphany
Add to these are continuations of Choker, Turf and Battle Pope!
Battle Pope is available on the Image app. Currently only issues #1-#5 are available of the 14 issue series.
Written by Robert Kirkman and art by Tony Moore, Battle Pope is a God-Powered pope who fights evil, helped by Jesus!
At this point Battle Pope has been defeated by Lucifer and is in hell!
Its well worth reading on the app – especially if you like this type of humour, because the way the transitions meld into each other really add to the comic timing!

Techland have pointed out that long running series and soon to be on TV series was released the same day in print as it was in digital…
Here’s something potentially interesting:Â iFanboy has noticed that the most recent issue of Robert Kirkman’sÂ The Walking Dead was released on the same day, at the same price point, in both digital and print versions. Not surprisingly, that leads to the question, is this a new ongoing thing, or a mistake?
Given the lack of fanfare about this move, I have to side with the latter, but also wonder if it’s a quiet trial balloon to see how audiences react. Day-and-date digital releases are something that comic publishers have only flirted with so far, with DC’sÂ Justice League: Generation Lost sharing a price point with the print version and Marvel’s digitalÂ Invincible Iron Man Annual being more expensive than print, so there’s nothing too revolutionary about Kirkman choosing this route – but, with the television series based on the comic launching next month, this would be a good time to do whatever it takes to make the comic available on as many platforms and to as many people as possible. Even if this was a mistake, perhaps we should expect an announcement soon…
…on my iPhone – I wouldn’t condone torrents!
