The sales pitch:
My name is Roosevelt Pitt, Jr. I'm the creator, owner and publisher of PURGE. I've been a comic book fan for most of my childhood and adult life. Comics have ignited my creativity and given me the drive to create stories and characters that can inspire and touch the heart of those who never saw themselves as being the hero. My desire since launching my very first black white comic in 1992, has been to create characters of color that would represent the very best African and African Americans have to offer. And thus Purge was born. After a year of sweat and tears, Purge - A New Direction is complete. A labor of love that was forged through a collaboration with KID Comics. Now together we are ready to take the next step...
I'm a huge fan of Larry Stroman, so I'm always happy to see new pages from him. These colors by the mighty Mshindo Kuumba I evoke that bleak future feel I get watching Bladrunner. Maybe this is a flashback sequence? We'll see...
The rest of these pages are illustrated by the Xong Bros. I've never heard of these cats before, but judging from these pages, I expect to hear more...
See what I mean? Anyways, as you can see, Purge: A New Direction is ready for prime time, so CLICK HERE to head over to the Kickstarter page to see more art, character bios and put up some chips to get this joint printed and out to the people!
Have great day!
