I have been raving about the excellence of the recently finished Infinite Vacation series from Nick Spencer and Christian Ward to anybody that will listen over the last couple of days. So for today’s Art Appreciation Moment of the Day I decided to give you a taste of the style series artist Christian Ward works in.
While readers who have been with Infinite Vacation since the first issue in 2011 have waited over half a year for the fifth and final issue to release I just had it show up on my radar this week and decided to dive all in and pick up the complete series. How will Nick Spencer and company wrap up this multi-universe spanning tale? Find out now in your Major Spoilers review!
Imagine a world where you are literally able to buy a better life, straight from your phone. This is the world that Nick Spencer – writer of the popular Morning Glories series – and Christian Ward present to us in their new title: The Infinite Vacation. Find out what I thought after the jump!
Natham Edmondson’s final issue of his Olympus min-series is arriving soon.Â He sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of the issue, that you can see after the jump.
25 March 2009 (Berkeley, CA) – Image Comics, Nathan Edmondson and Christian Ward reveal the secret life of the gods through the eyes of the Brothers Gemini in OLYMPUS, an all-new full color ongoing series beginning this May!
“Christian Ward and I created OLYMPUS as a barrel of powder, and along came the good folks at Image with the match,” Edmondson said.Â “To see our living vision presented to the world by such an excellent and widely-received publisher is an honor.”
OLYMPUS begins with the Brothers Gemini, 3,000 years after Zeus has granted them eternal life in exchange for eternal servitude,Â hunting an exiled god, only to stumble upon a greater horror by accidentally releasing one of Hades’ most dangerous prisoners. The results explode as Edmondson and Ward expand the mythology of classic tales in a fresh, compelling visual style in an action-adventure driven series unlike any other out there.
OLYMPUS #1 (MAR092402), a 24-page full color comic book for $2.99, will be in-stores May 20th, 2009.
