Finally read the first two issues of Extremity and I gotta say I’m really digging this new series from Image Comics via Skybound Entertainment. Action packed, fast-paced storytelling with good and very energetic art. I think in this case it really helps that the creator/writer/aritst Daniel Warren Johnson is drawing the story himself. With Extremity it looks like Skybound has yet another fine comic series on its roster, along with Redneck, Green Valley, Birthright, Manifest Destiny and of course the Robert Kirkman books. Does Skybound even publish a bad book? I don’t think so. Many kudos to Kirkman, editor Sean Mackiewicz and co. for their eye for talent.
Incidentally I recently noticed that these newer Skybound books are coming in with a $3.99 price point, while the mainstays retain the $2.99 price point.
And any rate, keep an eye on this series. I think it’s going to be a sleeper hit.
