Title: Sire # 1 Publisher: Mike Books & After Shock Comics Creator/Writer/Colorist: Michael Dolce Penciler: Dan Leister Cover Artist: Talent Caldwell Price: $ 3.99 US Rating: 2 out of 5 stars Website: www.mikebooks.com , www.aftershockcomics.com Comments: One man has a costume appear on him and it brings him into battle against three newly formed super villains. Sire lets the suit do the work for him and the villains have some unknown powers and strength and feral claws. The recap makes little sense. It explains next to nothing. The characters are all illustrated great. The feral bad guy is drawn in exciting action poses. We never learn all that much about these three villains. Next Sire faces the Siphon now this guy looks and acts evil. Who is this guy? Who is Sire? What is this costume? How did it come to be? Who is that creature hiding in the dark? To many unanswered questions. Sire himself is a wonderful character from the little we know about him.
Title: Sire # 2 Publisher: Mike Books & After Shock Comics Creator/Writer/Colorist: Michael Dolce Penciler: Dan Leister Cover Artist: Talent Caldwell Colorist: Catrina Cerise-Arana Plot Assist: Alex Picarelli Price: $ 3.99 US Rating: 3 out of 5 stars Website: www.mikebooks.com , www.aftershockcomics.com Comments: Now Don is fighting with his costume. He wants it off but it has a mind of its own. There are still so many unanswered questions. We do get a few answers but we need more. Who is that creature Don keeps talking to? A reporter who Don aka The Sire works for is investigating the person responsible for the creation of these super powered beings. The art does look great. The Sire is illustrated as a hero when he is not having trouble fighting the costume or talking to beings in his head. The Sire gets into a fight with the Bard. The Bard looks awfully like a certain Jade Giant who smashes things. The colors are different but otherwise. The Sire needs more work to become the hero he should be. You can see the beginnings of it here though. The Sire is becoming the super-hero he can be.
