Gravitas by Eric Guzman

Gravitas if featured in the G Theory Property

G Theory

Description: The City of New Dayton was once a beacon of optimism and hope for the Midwest, but the digital age brought a close to the blue collar lifestyle facilitating the close of the factory base as those jobs were shipped overseas. As a result the city's center became victim to the forces of suburban sprawl which lead to urban decay. Innocence withers in the city's "Bottoms" where life is desperate and morals are considered a luxury. Meanwhile the Summit View area thrives as a center of Urban Renewal.

Gravitas never thought of himself as a superhero, despite having the ability to control gravity at 15, and leading a team of super powered teens to save the world from the forces of evil. 20 some years later he is a college professor who keeps his head down and his eyes shut to the injustice taking place in his old neighborhoods. When he discovers two very powerful teens from two different sides of the city Gravitas decides to do something about the malevolence that surrounds him. He begins mentoring the teens to become the leaders in the community that can possibly bring about the social change he never could.

More on Gravitas coming soon.

As always, more to come.

These are the designs for some of the characters from StellarNova:
More on the characters can be found on my DA page:

The Pitch: C.J. Atom is the world’s newest big celebrity, in the world’s hottest band StellarNova! Follow as they embark on their first world tour!
Genre: Pop Cyber culture futurism
Themes: celebrity, Fun, Free Expression, Girl Power

Meet C.J. Atom, the youngest and arguably the most famous member of the Atom Family, who is embarking on her world tour with her band StellarNova! Watch as she struggles with all the stress of being an international celebrity, a corporate spokeswoman, a budding scientist and a teenage girl in the world’s most renown academic academy.

A history of pop icons: StellarNova
Rising from the clubs of Atom Island, StellarNova broke into the pop scene in 2006 with their debut album, StellarNova. The band's latest album, Superliscious Sciencetastic, blends C.J. Atom's easily digested arrangements with energetic guitar work to produce a record brimming with ultra-catchy gems. With unstoppable hit tracks like "TurbonuclearReign Party," look for StellarNova to be a major factor in the pop landscape for years to come.

C.J. formed the band with her friends from the International Peak Academy on Atom Island. Their works merge multiple mediums including dance, painting, sculpture and music. StellarNova stage shows are elaborate circus like atmospheres of spoken word, and an eclectic brew of Jazz, Pop, Blues, and Funk.

As always, more to come.

Indy Comic review: MAJESTIC XII #1


Majestic XII issue 1 cover by =spidey0318 on deviantART

A new comic series by Odyssey Comics

Justin Leach hit me up on DA and asked me if I would review his comic. I felt honored that he would seek my opinion on his work. Knowing what a labor of love sweat and tears comic book creation is I was surprised at how readily he put himself out there to have his work critiqued. I got the book in the mail and was impressed by its quality.

Majestic XII is a story about a hero named Legend who comes out of retirement after serving his country for years and disappearing into obscurity. The feds show up at his door and ask him to rejoin the fight against evil.Legend shaves and gets back into his old uniform and meets his new team, which is comprised of some old friends and a bunch of super powered convicts with a lot of different personalities. The team is immediately thrown into conflict with their mortal enemy a villain named Anthrax. They fight, Anthrax gets away and the table is set up for future adventures.

There were some things to love about the comic, and some things to critique. The book has a lot of characters and sometimes it is very easy to get confused about who is on the page. The writer did and excellent job of giving multiple characters their own voices and personalities. I really felt the book could have done more with less in that fewer characters would have given much more time to focus on some of the myriad interactions that are going on in the book. A flaw of the book is the transitions between panels. Sometimes it was very hard to follow what was going on where. I had to reread a few pages to get my bearings., Some of this seemed to be because the writer had SO MUCH that he wanted to say in the story. I can’t fault him for that, as that is also a problem I have in my own comic book writing.

Those things aside the art by Andre Kilian is pretty top notch and the colors by Omi Remalante Jr is amazing. I understand that this is the first book and It definitely needs room to grow, it has some things that work well. Legend is a strong leader who immediately jumps into the fray. Anthrax is a pretty crafty villain who has potential to be a thorn in the team’s side. The differing personalities on display lead to a lot of tension between the characters that is illustrated pretty well.

I especially liked the character Legend, because he has similarities to my character Gravitas. I believe he also manipulates Gravity, plus he is a no nonsense hero type. There are many characters on display in the book, and i am sure there is a favorite for almost any personality type.

I recommend the book to those looking for some new characters who actually do some fighting like in the early nineties when comics weren’t all talking heads and splash pages. Justin has a pretty good thing and he should really keep at it. Justin has a pretty good thing and he should really keep at it. It is a really strong effort, and as a person who knows how hard it is to produce a full comic he does a bang up job. I think the characters are there and any flaws will improve as he gets more time for the narrative to breathe and grow.

I like to share, but I hold a lot of my cards close because I know that I am sitting on a lot of incomplete product, characters that are unfinished, art without color, words without a script. My life is a perpetual unfinished work of art.

But sometimes I remember to reveal little by little and see what the world thinks, so here, let me know what you think of this:

Any feedback is welcome. Thanks.
