Comix Tribe at NYCC

One of the most exciting comic book companies on the internet is Comix Tribe.  If you are on twitter, you need  follow their up and coming creators: Tyler James, Joey Mulvey, and John Lees. Besides their entertaining creators, Comix Tribe does a tremendous job of of mixing the horror genre with the cape genre. If you're a fan of anything outside the box, Comix Tribe is definitely your new destination. Last weekend, Comix Tribe announced a spin off of James' Oxymoron series' Oxymoron: The Loveliest Nightmare. For those who don't know, Oxymoron reminds fanboys of DC's Joker but taken to a level that DC would never, ever do. Trust me, check out Oxymoron because it brings depravity to a whole new level. James has a unique style that reminds me a lot of Mark Millar. If you enjoy things that disturb as well as entertain, like Hannibal, Seven and Luther this is an automatic pick up for any comic book reader.

Speaking of Luther; this is a BBC series that does a great job exploring the desires and mentality of the shows' villains. Tyler tackles that concept and explores it in ways that mainstream creators like Scott Snyder and Jason Aaron have teased us with, but haven't been given the free range to explore properly.
Wait, don't leave. The Comix Tribe news does not end there. In 2014, they have plans for a second Oxymoron anthology. Wait, there is even more. Comix Tribe is publishing a new book titled Epic. You have less than 24 hours to fund the project and get a fun reward for doing so. 

A quick synopsis:

"After a freak experiment gives teenager Eric Ardor incredible powers, he does what you would do...he puts on a costume and becomes EPIC! Super strength, speed, flight, optic blasts…it’s a fanboy's dream come true. Unfortunately, he's just discovered he has one weakness...pretty girls! While most boys his age lose their cool around the hotties, EPIC loses his powers! Living in Miami, home to the zaniest super-villains AND the most bikinis per capita in America, it’s gonna be a problem…"

As of right now, they have 194 backers, 13 hours left, and $6,089 pledged. Even if you've never tried a indie book before or you're not sure if it's worth your hard-earned money, take a chance on this because we expect tremendous things from Comix Tribe. And you trust us, right?
