D+1: We’ve Secured the Beachhead

D+1: We’ve Secured the Beachhead

Arktoons had a spectacular launch yesterday.

Better than could be hoped for.

I, like a lot of you, was already familiar with Arkhaven’s titles. However, this format is so much more convenient than pamphlets. I knew roughly what to expect but I hadn’t had a chance to really explore it before now. This is a lot more than I ever thought it would be and I was pretty optimistic about it before the launch.

Throne of Bones was amazing to see like this. But Midnight’s Wars was something I wasn’t expecting from Vox. I know that theoretically he must have heard of urban fantasy but I never thought he had much interest in the subject. I can’t wait to see where this one goes.

I also liked the classic public domain title, Frogmen, that Chuck Dixon dug up. It had a real Johnny Quest vibe to it that I just loved. I can’t wait to see what else he finds.

Hey Chuck! Is Captain Marvel in public domain? I mean the Myron Fast version.

I’ve only ever heard about it and read a few panels but those few scenes were enough to convince that it indeed and truly was robbed of the title; Worst Comic Book of all time.

The title that really rocked me was from Superprumo. Hammer of Freedom is so stark and hard-hitting, it forcibly reminded me of Watchmen. I hate to make enemies by picking a favorite but that one was it.

The beachhead is secured and we are moving inland.

We are Arkhaven and we are rolling hot!

    The Chuck classic was a real treat. I hope there are some commando in the public domain.
    Keep at it.

    A truly impressive first three days. I was delighted with the stuff that *wasn’t* trailed, including The Frogmen. (If you’d told me that Arkhaven would feature work from Alex Toth, I’d have said you were deluded.)

    So much to think about, but Hammer of Freedom looks excellent, the JDA stuff is lots of fun, and there’s a real sense of a great, connected superhero universe unfolding with all the Alt Hero content. I’m a bit overwhelmed, actually, but that’s all to the good! And it’s only Day 3.

      I’m interested in backing the site but having trouble with the functionality. For example when I’m on the main page I type in Hammer of freedom in the search bar only for it to tell me there are no results matching? What gives? Site navigation needs an explained or repair.
