Outright Geekery is all about supporting comics and comic book creators of all sizes and levels of popularity, and that goes double for the smallest of the small: the unknown independent comic team. Driven by passion, we like to put a spotlight on the projects of the little guy as much as we can. Night Shift is one such project by writer Joey Peden, artist Cesar Adrian Carrasquel, and colorist Akau Anyieth. Check out the project funding page via IndieGoGo, and more after the jump.
It’s hard to explain what Intersect is exactly. I’m not sure if this story is taking place in a characters mind, either a dream or nightmare, or if even the events of the story are actually happening in the reality established in this issue. This is the first issue, so there’s going to be some world-building, but it felt lacking. I was lost after one character changes personalities three times in the issue. Ray Fawkes performs a double duty on this book, both as the writer and artist. I’ve been enjoying his work on Batman Eternal. I know he can tell a good story about madness and insanity from his work on Constantine. As an artist, Fawkes’ panels are wonderfully done. Sadly, it doesn’t help this book. Here’s our Preview.

From time to time Outright Geekery brings you a slanted and biased opinion on some trivially specific topic of geekery. We call it Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot.
One of the great things Star Trek was able to do in all its many incarnations was to give a certain aspect of character to the many ships and structures that were every bit as much stars of the show as the uniformed Starfleet Graduates tooling around inside. The Enterprise with its rugged frontier feel, the air of home and family that surrounded Voyager, the bustling city that was DS9, and the Defiant just felt like a powerful war machine, but there was nothing quite like the Enterprise-D. It was a posh departure from the original Enterprise, and not only set up the new and different tone of this series but took the entire franchise into new and interesting ways to tell stories. But a Starship is really nothing more than a collection of rooms, and the Enterprise-D had some of the coolest ones in all of the series. So, without further ado, we open the *swish*ing doors on the obvious, throw in a bit of the obscure, but always make it fun, in Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot: Rooms on the Enterprise-D.

In the finale to this first arc, Riley learns a tragic secret about the Angel and finds himself in the crosshairs of a battle royale between The Patriot and the man responsible for a series of brutal murders, who is as powerful as any of the Protectors…maybe more so. The ending will forever change the world of the Protectors…and not in a “we’ll reset this later” way.
