I’m a sucker for Scifi Comics, in fact i’m knee deep in a few books, but one in particular has caught my attention. “Life Support” written by Ian Beck and illustrated by Shaun Mullen. “Life Support” makes great use of motion story telling along side some fantastic art by Shaun Mullen, which pulls you in and engages you. I’m a big fan of digital comics going this route, and “Life Support” makes great use of it. Check it out for yourself!
Issue 1 of Life Support is now available to read for FREE over on DeviantArt and very soon you’ll be able to read it on the go on your mobile devices/tablets directly from the Madefire app.
