"The Black Suit of Death" - is an indie comic that deserves your attention.
This episode Chuck and Steve have a great time laughing and interviewing with Warrior Innkeeper Creative's: Benjamin Kreger, co-creator and writer of a very cool new indie comic book called "The Black Suit of Death", BSD for short. The BSD was envisioned 20 years ago (by Ben and his friend Ed Ellsworth), and it's finally ready for it's (color) close-up. Recently Ben and Ed completed a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund finalizing BSD#1. They jam packed their book with fun background "easter eggs" and cool extras (including Fred Hembeck's "Li'l BSD" comic strip page!). Ben Kreger and Ed Ellsworth write this title together; it has humor, depth, and relatable characters. Did I mention the art? Amazing pencils and color work by Dexter Wee. The guy's a pro.
About Ben: He's a happily married guy, a dad (teaching the lessons of Star Wars and Star Trek to his kids), a proud veteran, and... he's a geek (or is it nerd?). He followed his dream to succeed in the comic industry, and BSD is an achievement long in the making.
About the actual Black Suit: It's an extraterrestrial biomechanical killing machine (that you wear), and it is probably the very article which originated our myth of The Grim Reaper. It reveals itself to a distraught college student named Edd Grimes. Oh, and it comes with a requisite kick-ass scythe. Will Edd use the BSD for good or something darker? Can Edd rely on his friends to temper darker inclinations? Will Mr. Lutz meet an untimely end? And how does Jar-Jar Binks tie into all this? Get behind this indie comic to find out. Go find his page on Kickstarter, go visit his webpage (below), or at least "like" Black Suit of Death on Facebook until you're hooked. Then tell your local comic shop owner.
