We here at Mission Start Podcast were tasked with bringing you the preview of Erabyss. This is a new comic series from Scattered comics and written, drawn and colored by Warin Johnson....
The synopsis pulled right from their facebook page reads “Erabyss follows Vale and his friends as their world succumbs to a devastating phenomenon called Rot. Their journey to discover the source of this strange infestation turns into a horrific nightmare as the Rot begins to spawn terrifying creatures called Tyrants. No place is safe from their relentless onslaught and our heroes are forced to consider the unthinkable. In order to save their world, they must first be ready to sacrifice it.”
I really enjoyed this preview. It seems to be very rooted in supernatural lore but will take those ideas and turn them on its head. The character design is great, each detail that is added is designed to flesh out who these people are. I didn’t need to know their individual histories to understand what they were about and tha’ts so fun to read. When you do see them interact with each other, they fulfill those ideas in your head, and as a writer, Warin nailed it.
As I mentioned briefly earlier, the art is very detailed. Every line drawn has a purpose and is not wasted. There is a shot of an arm that has been cut by something, the look of the wound was great and I could feel the sincerity from the character nursing it. The story in the preview is very short and is designed for you to get a glimpse of what is to come. What I took away was how this comic will keep me coming back for more and wanting to understand what that last panel was.
