On February 26th, a new comic book company will be launching on the iPad and then will continue to take over digitally on the iPhone, then Android, then the web. This comic book company? New Worlds Comics. The first two comics from New Worlds Comics will become available on their iTunes page the same day the company launches.
The first comic book is Wynter, the story of 17-year-old Liz Wynter. It’s written by New Worlds Comics (who is also the CEO of New Worlds Comics) and drawn by Aron Elekes. In Wynter’s world, commercials play in her head when she goes to sleep and when she wakes up she gets to see how many people followed and saw her dreams. The problem is, because there are so many people in the galaxy that every three days people are born with her exact DNA structure. In a world where everyone feels special, Liz is not. This sounds like a promising title and I wonder if the creative team has in mind what I think they do – Youtube taken to the extreme?
New Worlds Comics second comic book is a comedy called Goof. Also written by Guy Hasson and drawn by Guillermo Ramirez, Goof is about the goofiest superhero in the world: Nick Knickerbocker. He was given superpowers by aliens who chose him to protect the Earth but unfortunately they turned him into a supergoof.
Both these issues will be $3.99 and will be about 22-23 pages long. An artist’s sketchbook for each will also be released and will cost $2.99.
Here is New Worlds Comics’ manifesto:
I like a lot of the ideas New Worlds Comics is planning to play around with. Time has always seemed to be in a standstill in comics. Otherwise Batman, Wonder Woman, even Superman, would have probably died from old age by now. In this universe, characters will not live forever and I think it would be fascinating if a character lived for years in real-time and we got to see them age like they would in the real-world.
Of course, I also love the idea of frequently having women protagonists and strong female secondary characters. There are some very empowering women in comics, and I hope New Worlds Comics can deliver a couple more fantastic heroines into the world of comics.
