So tomorrow brings the release of Bounty #1, by Kurtis Wiebe. This is one of those books that I think could be around for a really long time. After reading the first issue, it really stuck with me. There was a perfect balance of things amongst the book, and I could feel the potential.
When I chatted with Kurtis about it, his words stuck in my mind:
"As for Bounty, it was originally created in response to what many fans shared with me about Rat Queens; they loved the message and the characters and wanted to share it with their younger siblings or kids, but the content meant they couldn't. I wanted to be able to tell stories that had the energy and feeling of something like Rat Queens that could reach a younger audience as well."
I really enjoy fan driven projects. By that, I don't mean fan-service. It's just nice to know that a creator will think about one of their projects and realize that it's lacking something or maybe has too much of something for a particular audience.
Bounty is a really fun read. It's dark, funny, and the two main characters have a lot of spirit. The book has a perfect balance. Don't believe me? Find out for yourself. Add one new title to your pull list this week, and let it be Bounty #1.
