Comic book artist Hoang Nguyen teams with writer Mike Kennedy to revive ‘Metal Militia,’ a series that Nguyen worked on in the nineties back to life in this reboot where he successfully raised funds through a crowdfunding campaign.
Max wakes up in a New York that is under the control of a technology company that is hunting him. He has no memories and only a voice in his head that helps “coach” him when he is under attack. Turns out, he is suspect number one for “the Hammer,” a murderer hunting members of the big tech corporation. He runs into a mysterious journalist who thinks he is connected to the Hammer and that there might be more to his origin than he could possibly know.
Nguyen is one of the top artists and his character designs, cityscapes, and even how he brings the action to life in this science fiction action story are superb. Likewise, Mike Kennedy does an excellent job with the script, giving us a dark story with some pretty cool characters. They both compliment each other very well and leave you wanting more when it is over. I was proud to support this campaign and I cannot wait for the sequel.
