‘Future Proof #5:’ Advance Comic Book Review


It’s 1910. A group of highly influential bankers meets in a smoke-filled train car to decide the nation’s financial future—and, ultimately, ruin it in order to line their own pockets; however, our intrepid time agents have different ideas. Are they going to save the country? Being that their previous assignments have included killing Kennedy and saving Hitler, it’s doubtful that things are that simple; however, whatever they end up doing, their AI-god, The Sing, has determined that it’s the best course of action to ensure the future, so they carry it out without question.
There’s more to this mission than meets the eye, though—and possibly more to their entire job, and to The Sing itself. When you’re dealing with cause and effect with regards to time travel, things are bound to get a little bit messy.

Complex as this story is getting, though, I’m loving every page of it. Each issue is a new adventure, further back in history, but the characters and events are still inextricably linked and continue to become more so as we go on. And, it’s a lot of fun to see it all unfold.

Future Proof is published by Bliss on Tap.

‘I Play the Bad Guy #4:’ Comic Book Review

Written by 

So far, we’ve seen our protagonist, Frank, do some pretty horrible things to quite a number of people. We know his ultimate goal is an honorable one—to find his daughter—but still, he’s doing quite a good job of “playing the bad guy.”
In this issue, though, we start to get a better idea of just who it is he’s up against: what they did to him; what they did to others; and what they’re still doing. We begin to think that maybe Frank is justified in what he’s doing. Maybe he’s not as much of a bad guy as he looks.

At least, that’s what I began to think while reading this comic. Maybe you’ll think, “Hey, that annoying, little girl from the first issue is actually becoming pretty cool!” Maybe you’ll think, “Did I leave the stove on?” I don’t know your life.

Regardless, this is an interesting issue. There’s less action and little-to-no violence as compared to previous issues, but it still manages to keep our attention. For the most part, anyway. There’s a scene where someone explains the effects on the human body of the superpower experiment that Frank and his friends were subjected to. There’s a lot of stuff about enzymes and it drags just a bit, but there’s a purpose behind it, I promise.

The story is really moving along now, and I’m interested to see what happens next. If you like superpowers, seedy government experiments, revenge stories, and antiheroes, you’ll probably be interested to know what happens next, as well. Check it out.
