JO: Yeah, for sure. The Raven...was originally a mini-series that I was self publishing AND self distributing...a LOT of work. So, what we have done is, we have moved the series over to a more accomplished, more established publisher--we signed a deal with Arcana Studios, the Shuster Award winner as Canadian Comics Publisher Of The Year and we will be relaunching the series with an all new #1 issue this year. 36 pages--full color.
Ho-hum. Other than the nifty raptor-like costume, I don't see much here. No points for the name "Raven" either. Here are a few of the characters and titles that have used "Raven" before:
Raven Darkholme (Mystique)
The Chosen One: Legend of the Raven
Red Raven: Lore of the Time Before
Rocking Raven: A LOUSY Tale
In short, if the Raven idea hasn't been done to death yet, it has been done. It reminds me of the creator I know who came up with the stunningly unoriginal name "Nighthawk" for his Native hero. Try again, people.
Is it just me, or is it a bad angle, or are this Raven's head and neck really too large and out of proportion to the rest of the body?
The head is a little large, but not exceptionally so. The pose is a bit awkward too--not the one I would've chosen for the first issue.
