NYCC Highlight: Electronic

One of my favorite parts of comic cons is meeting independent creators.  I never know what new, exciting stories I might find.  One such new story is Electronic created by Joe Corallo and Danny Luckert, published by Venturous Publishing.

From Electronic FB page:

In a future not as far as you would think, corporations rule. It took decades upon decades of countries rising and falling as corporations withstood the test of time. As more struggling governments gave in to their demands and outsourced more of the government’s work to them, they would find their opportunity and go for the kill. 

These corporations would rebrand themselves as nations. As a r
esult, national borders fade and in many ways people are brought closer together. However, there is still conflict.

One nation, RAND, has enjoyed its status as the global hegemony for years. Its robotics division, led by Jean Young, has been keeping RAND ahead of its competition with their humanoid robots, known as ELECs. One of her finest works is Elec 2.9 AKA Carly Cash. This is her story.
The first issue is an excellent read, with the storyline just pulling you in.  C'mon, who doesn't believe that corporations may one day rule the world.  Within the first issue, you are introduced to this world and I for one can't wait to read more.  In case you don't believe me, check out some preview pages below.

Here we go again at NYCC! Day One Highlights!

NY Comic Con kicked off today with a floor full of awesome. The best part is the floor wasn't crazy crowded. Nice and easy to walk, which is rare. The other bonus was that NYCC used the construction to their advantage this year. The tunnel between sections of floor was transformed into the TMNT sewer. Very fun and I'm glad I got to see it before its packed full of people.

It looks cooler in real life, I swear.

When we got inside, both Wysefyre and I went our separate ways immediately, covering different sections of the floor. She checked out "The Block" which is the designer section (you may remember it as the cultyard). After more wandering, she checked out the Justice is Served panel, featuring a ton of amazing authors, including Myke Cole and Amber Benson. Wysefyre promises to give complete details after her shoulder regains feeling from all the freebies she got!

On my journey, I checked out the main comics and gaming for a bit, while I waited to do some interviews. My favorite had to be the Assassin's Creed III preview I got to see. I'm no hardcore gamer, but the graphics and storyline seem fantastic. It's definitely going on my list. I also got the ultimate picture of the day at the bandai gaming area!

Just love Gaming Abe
Then I got a chance to speak with the director of Silver Circle, a new animated film and graphic novel followed by a fun interview with the new Editor-in-Chief of Dark Horse Comics, Scott Allie!  I ended my night taking a quick jaunt around the crazy big Artist Alley!! This is huge and a great excuse to try out the panorama function on my phone. Can't wait to go back with some cash in my pocket to spend!!!

Until tomorrow....
