Released under the Apex Comics Group Imprint, ‘The R.I.G.H.T. Project‘ is an indie comic book series written by Tom DeFalco with artwork from Ron Frenz and Ron Lim.
Dr. Dexter Click and his niece Carlyn work in the field of holographic technology. Carlyn’s gamer friend Jeffrey Lopez secretly makes a copy of the technology, working on his own twist. When a government agent known as Big Brother takes over the laboratory, seeking to steal the technology, Lopez activates his program and a digital daredevil called Mr. Right appears. Able to interact with the real world, he becomes a superhero for the small city of New Hope.
The artwork by Frenz and Lim was good too. They did a good job of capturing that old school that I use to read when I was first becoming a fan. Sal Buscema is credited as an “inker” and that was one of the coolest parts of the series.
Tom DeFalco is a genius. He has written some of my favorite stories and was one of the BEST Marvel editors-in-chief, bringing such excellent stories as Spider-Man: Maximum Carnage. Here, he returns to his roots with The R.I.G.H.T. Project. It has the nineties feel to it with that sort of idealistic hero who is also eccentric but works with ordinary humans to be a hero. It was a good read and a lot of fun.
One last note, Frenz’s “cover A” is also a cool selling point.
In full disclosure, I am a fan of Tom DeFalco’s work, so I did support the crowdfunding campaign.
