One of the great tropes in science fiction and fantasy is the “outsider,” someone who looks on humanity from a different point of view. Star Trek had Spock, Data, Odo and The Doctor, for instance! They often helped us look at ourselves from a new perspective. In Ogre, we get to see how humans treat others, and it’s often not pretty!
Love can bring two people together from beyond great distances, even death! When the gun totting former American soldier, John Sargent, falls deeply in love with a gorgeous Chinese woman named Mei, all seemed right in the world. Except for the fact, that she is a Vampire. Will their love last? Or will it burst into flames at first light? Note: This comic doesn’t arrive in stores until March 30th , 2011 so SPOILERS AHEAD!
With the success of Mouse Guard, I expect to see many more anthropomorphized fuzzy critters running around in comics. AAM/Markosia has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of N-Guard #1 featuring just such creatures fighting against something evil.
