    Default Black Badge Hype Thread!

    Anybody else eagerly waiting for the next issue? I know I am. Below, I edited my 'Twitter' comments together into a cohesive blurb. This isn't a review but my thoughts. I love to hear what everybody else thinks.

    I'm loving the use of color in this comic. It's quite beautiful in some of the panels. The art is simplistic but it matches the simple story. Willy is the new Scout in this covert group called the "Black Badge". Scouts that work off the grid to correct the world that adults screwed up. Willy must prove his worth to the group while staying alive. Things don't get too crazy in this first issue. It's more of an introduction to this world through the viewpoint of Willy, from what I can tell. We'll most likely see this world from the others Scouts viewpoint but for now, Willy is a good place to start. I can't wait to see what Kindt has planned for the story. I'm definitely recommending this one. I think Kindt & The Jenkins delivered a solid first issue.

    I'm definitely behind this title-- really, really liked Grass Kingdom by these creators, and hoping for as good a run on Black Badge, although the tone and subject matter is so very different. Not a big Kindt fan, myself, but Grass Kingdom is up there in my strong-affirmative-nod collection, and, as I say, I've hopes for this, too!

    This is actually my first Kindt title. I'll definitely check out Grass Kingdom. My bias toward Marvel & DC really detracted my love for comics. It shouldn't have. Due to some recent politics and comic stores closing, I've really wanted to do my part in supporting the industry and my local shop. I'm six or seven months deep into my little revival and found so many indie series that I've enjoyed. Sorry, I steered off subject. I'm just trying to explain why this is my first Kindt title. Is there anything beyond Grass Kingdom I need to check out?

    Just went checking to see what else he's done-- turns out the only other Kindt title I like was Divinity, which goes for three volumes, and I really only enjoyed the first, so alas, you'll have to rely on others to recommend anything other than Grass Kings.

    I was totally engrossed in Mind MGMT, so of course I wanted to check out this book. It will be interesting to see whether there is more to each of these team members than has been let on so far, and whether this black ops project might involve the same sort of superhuman talents that the Mind MGMT agents learned to develop. In any case, I enjoyed the art style, especially the colors, so I'll stay with the title for the next few issues and see whether they draw me into the story.
