The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of UGLI STUDIOS PRESENTS #3 from UGLI Studios. Jason Lenox and Joe Freistuhler are the creative force behind the project.
Welcome to the planet Aiden, home to a shining civilization and the evil consortium trying to destroy it. This is the introduction to an epic science fiction tale. Then we are treated to a brief conversation in a library. And finally we revisit Nazi Germany for an adventure of a different kind.
This book is a great example of what indie comics are capable of doing in this day and age. The stories are very well written: the sci-fi story is an exercise in fantastic worldbuilding, the library tale is an almost poetic celebration of words, and the Nazi story is classic horror done well. And the art for each of the stories is styled in just the right way for the subject material – which is not that easy to do in black & white.
It’s a really well constructed compilation, a great showcase for what these guys can do. Check them out – this is really good stuff.
