Well well finally it's here and finally I read the new Issue of Pandeia by Paul Caggegi.
This second issue follows Corben and Tholemo through there exploration into an ancient desert temple as there fellow crew member Minauld pursues the attackers from the previous issue.
This adventure is really building up nicely. Paul's storytelling yields quick action that hits all those comic book happy spots with dynamic panel layouts. He also draws you in with a super intriguing Indiana Jone's style quest as we get clued into the ancient world of this shape shifting Cadian desert land from future Earth.

It's obvious that Paul put's a lot of thought into his world building and storytelling. He uses 3D modeling to create certain element's like many of the vehicles and buildings. I am never pulled out of the story by an unnatural contrast of modeling v.s. traditional comic rendering like you might expect from lesser attempts.
Needless to say the production quality on the book is superb and easily holds up to the quality of any book on the shelves of your favorite book retailer.
Also as a bonus Paul's blog/podcast at ProcessDiary.com is a great companion to his work. You can really get a sense of how Paul works out all the creative decisions while putting together this comic book series as well as a peek into his thoughts on independent publishing and all of it's many challenges.
As a creator this series has been a huge inspiration to me! A well done example of good storytelling and a very professional and exciting approach to executing projects.
I'm happy to support Paul because his work hooks me in and brings me through enjoyable crescendo's of adventure. Also he's a super nice guy who I highly recommend you also support and keep on your radar!
