Nick Fury is not impressed by Drake’s “Hotline Bling” dancing in new video from IGN.
Alpha Flight has every right to be upset.
As the world’s most famous Canadian [non-Wolverine bracket], rapper/ actor/ walking internet meme Aubrey “Drake” Graham is bound to make some enemies. But being pitted against Earth’s Mightiest Heroes might be a fight that not even Swole Drake can win.
In the wake of Steve Niles, Jimmy Palmiotti, and Justin Gray’s Creator-Owned Heroes, it’s nice to see other creators establishing informal studios to take a stab at the ongoing-anthology format. Anthony Marques, Fernando Ruiz, Bob Hardin and Fabio Redivo are graduates and current staff instructors of the Kubert School who have teamed to produce Epics, a quarterly comic that serializes four pulp-inspired stories. Marques is creating Katyusha, Ruiz has The Iron Ghost, Hardin’s making A Racy Story and Redivo presents Drake.
The first issue was paid for by fans via Kickstarter and released Sept. 15 during a special signing at Dewy’s Comic City in Madison, New Jersey, but subsequent issues will be published by A Wave Blue World. The publisher has the first issue for sale right now (it’s also available digitally through comiXology) and promises that Issue 2 will be released in March. There are also plans for Katyusha and Iron Ghost spin-off series next year.
