Comic book writer Thomas Retzke brings us ‘Chasing Demons,’ a story about the rise of the vigilante Cobalt. The artwork is done by Pradeep Sethi and Jordan Beattie.
Matthew Foster is getting out of prison after serving time for covering up evidence during his time as a police officer. Waiting for him is his girlfriend Tessa who is the only one still looking out for one. After getting an eviction notice, he goes to his old crime boss to ask for money but is beaten for his trouble. This sparks something in Foster who plans on taking up a mask in Denver, Colorado.
Retzke knows what comic book fans want and he has a gift for it. Cobalt was a fan-favorite when he appeared in the Stryde series and so Retzke had no issue serving us an origin story for him. With the sleek artwork and tight plot, it opens up that world. This is leaps and bounds better than what is coming out of the mainstream comic book industry because it did not shoe-horn any lectures or try to shriek at me, it brought a solid story with a dynamite character. I look forward to the next entry.
In full disclosure, I supported the crowdfunding campaign for this comic book and I cannot wait to support the next one.
