Alterna Comics: where to find them....


Recommended Posts

Are you into comics? Back in April of 2020, I discovered Alterna Comics. In this thread, I will highlight Blood Realm, from Rob Geronimo:

 

Also, check out Rob's YouTube channel, Geronimo Draws- he is an art professor and Comic book artist/writer:

Be sure to tell Rob that ol' Rock Vox sent you.

How about this for a strong female lead: David Lucarelli's Tinsel Town! What is it about? Here is the official description: "In 1915, Abigail Moore became one of the first female police officers in Hollywood. But beneath the glamorous surface of Tinseltown beats a rotten heart full of corruption, greed, and lies, and Abigail's about to dive head-first into all of it."

Here is where to find Alterna comics:

https://www.alternaaccess.com/

I would suggest Keith Gleason's all-age romp, The Mighty Mascots. Alterna comics are very affordable. The writers and artists are very approachable and fan-oriented. As you can tell, I am sold. I am not gettin paid to shill for Publishin' Pete Simeti, but if you like indy comics, I invite you to give them a try. Pete is also a great artist. I commissioned Pete to draw my icon, seen here and on my YouTube channel.

If you buy Alterna, be sure to tell 'em ol' Rock Vox sent you....

Pete Semeti is a great guy, persecuted by a bunch of crazies destroying comics. He's actually half-asian half-italian, yet the SJW's called him a "white supremacist." 🤣 @WarTraveller might relate with his work, he's dealt with stuff like that before....

  I would really recommend these to any one who loves classic timeless comics without today-year politics that will be deemed offensive and irrelevant tomorrow, and are just tired of straining their eyes on digital ones. They strongly remind me of comics in the later silver and bronze age in their look. @Akessel92is a history buff - any he would like?

@MoKatYou like classic comics right?

Rock Vox has given me some copies of Alterna comics, and it's exactly how I remember comic books used to be like. Rather than pandering to a very narrow audience that doesn't really buy comics in the first place.

Indie Comics like this, Cyberfrog, Bigfoot Bill, Earthworm Jim (yes, the creator has been coming out with a few comics lately), and Alterna are the real future of comics. Who knows, maybe we'll see some of these in the small or big (digital, since the film industry is basically dead) screen in the future, you never know. :)

Gods & Gears is probably my personal favorite out of all the Alterna Comics. It's got a really cool premise, and if Hammerella is anything to go by, a blossoming expanded universe. :)

I'd recommend anyone who loved old space sci-fi fantasy and Jack Kirby comics to check them out.

Blood Realm sounds like a cool metal band, this series is all another favorite and major interest of mine from Alterna next to Gods & Gears. They really don't make comic books like they used to, where you can be trippy and awesome. Or have a real grungy type of art style or theme. At least you won't see that over at Marvel or DC, can't speak for other main comic book publishers, but still.

You bet your power rings I do ^.^

Hubby & I both enjoy a good issue of Zorro; the minis that American Mythology Produtions publishes have more supernatural elements than earlier runs, but are still worth reading. They also reprint the original tales through thier "Timeless Tales" series. I still have issues of Prince Valiant (reprints of the Sunday comic strips) somewhere around here.

Author David Lucarelli's mom was a cop in Philadelphia...

 

That means it probably has some truth to it. Hollywood at that time was basically an industrial wrinkle in the still very Wild West. The younger gunsligners were not even gray yet. Hollywood was the exact opposite of its current economic poltical identity, but the nasty social aspects were already forming around its monopolistic power. It was fiercely libertarian because New York’s stolid protectionism over Edison’s patents over film cameras. American Film began there (and independent film festivals are still big there to this day), but Hollywood was the refuge camp for young people with cinematic ideas. It’s a rich historical period to build off of. Big issue with the concept is that as a writer I would want to use real cinema history and real cinema stories. I am not sure how much of that would be in the public domain. Like the film makers fleeing from Patent-Mad Eddy, we still have to suffer through the pains of copyright.
