KICKSTARTER PICK: The New Zodiax Trade Paperback

Independent comics are hard to produce, especially on your own. Comic book artist Joe St. Pierre has been doing a heck of a job creating, writing, editing and drawing his creator owned series, The New Zodiax. (If you would like to learn more about the stories within, check out my reviews of issue one, issue two, issue three and issue four.) Now with four issues under his belt, each with a brand new character introduced into the ethos, Pierre wants to make a trade paperback of this first arc of the Zodiax story.

Trades are definitely what drive a lot of sales within the comic book industry, and because of the recent “binge watch” society we live in, many fans wait until full stories are collected in trades, rather than reading them piece mail from month to month when the individual comics are released. Also, a trade paperback can be a treasure trove of additional material, and Pierre’s New Zodiax trade will be just that. It will include 20 plus pages of additional art, pinups, creation insights, never before seen art and development sketches.

The story revolves around The Liberaider, who along with Cricket, Multaa and The Lion make up the first four of the New Zodiax. Each issue has been split between the ongoing saga of The Liberaider and a subsequent story introducing a new character. Getting this trade now is the perfect time jump on the story, as more characters will be introduced in later issues, and we will start to see them all become aware of one another and interact with each other. Pierre is creating massive shared universe in the span of a few issues, so this trade is the best way to get in at the ground floor.

You can help out by donating to the Kickstarter here, and you will be eligible to receive some amazing rewards from Pierre, as well as some incredible talent in the comic book industry. Sandy Florea (BATMAN), Jay Leisten (DEATH OF WOLVERINE), Joe Rubinstein (WOLVERINE), and Laura Martin (STAR WARS) are just some of the lengthy list of names attached to the rewards tiers in this Kickstarter campaign. The stars are changing, so be one of the first to have the beautiful trade paperback that chronicles the beginning of the world altering events in THE NEW ZODIAX.

Both my parents instilled in me at an early age the awesome power and incredible wonder of the written word. My father sat with me when I was four years old and taught me to enjoy reading with classic comic strips like SPIDERMAN, PEANUTS, B.C. and, later, CALVIN AND HOBBES. My mother exposed me to such classics of literature as Poe, Tolkien, Stoker and Doyle, and I started my own comic collection with allowance money from mowing lawns. I liked Wolverine before it was cool, I watched as Superman died and returned, and huddled under the covers as I turned the pages of SANDMAN. Reading is like oxygen to me, and all genres and formats are welcome and devoured equally. I am the co-host of The DW and Incredible Jeff Show, CEO of Permian Productions, and a reviewer at Graphic Novel Reporter. I am 34 and live in scenic Saratoga Springs New York, where I haunt coffee shops and dive bars and the best comic shop anywhere, The Comic Depot.
