Faction #1 - A New New Zealand Comic
Launched very recently was Faction, a brand new 72 page comic made by Kiwi's (that's what New Zealander's call themselves)! At first I thought it was going to be one long grahic novel but instead I was suprised to find a mixture of humour and adventure style strips, between two and ten pages (on average)! Here are some of the highlights (although all of it is top quality)!
Migrane is a short, eight page humour strip about two kids getting a present for their mum. After a crash of which they don't care at all about they walk into a nearby house for a drink and find a lady lying on the floor with a giant thing (I don't know a better word to describe it) coming out of her head! Art is signed by 'Ned', whos full name is Ned Wenlock.
One Giant Leap by Damon Keen is a very interesting strip about an astronaut who is separated from his space craft and has to try and get back. The only words said in this strip is the title and the creators name!
Do You Want To Talk About It by Matt and Sam Emery is about a man with a crazy dream about giant killer robots! I will say no more...
And finally, I'll show one full page, the last comic strip in the comic - Waves, Sea, Leaky, Moby Dick and Fish by Roger Langridge.
Faction is a superb piece of work, and I'll be getting a paper version as soon as I can - I was amazed by how much I loved it! You can find out more about Faction on their website:
