…it’s hard not to look forward to seeing how far this can go. Learning more about the Annihilators and seeing more gorgeous still-choreography is more than enough to deserve readership. Drew Spence might just have something really special at his fingertips…

Every now and again the purpose of a story isn’t just about being told, it’s about the medium of storytelling itself. While comic art has come a long way, there are always going to be those who are eager to push the envelope and take the next step into uncharted territory. While these leaps of faith don’t always have the smoothest of landings, there’s a lot to be said about opening the door for future opportunities. Such is the case with Force Six: The Annihilators.

Episode 01: Trick Shot shows off the style and uniqueness of The Dynamic Universe’s Drew Spence. Spence takes 3-D models and carefully renders them in poses over a canyon setting. This is a fast-paced issue that, while feeling more like a tease than a beginning, does tell a complete segment of a story. Playing off the limited time-frame and the unknowing perspective of the reader, Spence has a hit play out before our eyes quicker than we can gauge the full scope of the situation. This makes for a twist at the end that shows that things aren’t as simple as they seem, and the world inhabited by the Annihilators isn’t one to be taken at face value. Other than that, there’s driving and shooting. This action-packed sequence may not give clear motives for the characters, but it definitely tips the reader off to the themes they can expect in subsequent issues.

As far as the medium, Trick Shot contains its own soundtrack, playing on the virtual medium of digital comics and expanding the experience in a fun way. While the models may not be as expressive as some art styles in traditional comic books, the action poses look stellar. There’s one sequence involving a technologically-augmented stunt that feels like it was taken straight from a Final Fantasy cut scene. The possibilities of this art style really do beg to be explored, and the Dynamic Universe seems to be the place to go. With enough time and effort, this has a real chance of being placed up there with the great artists of our time. As of now, the rendering can be a bit sloppy. Some motions are unclear, and the lettering leaves something to be desired. Still, credit where it’s due, this is an exciting piece of content.

Even if the art or narrative don’t have full breathing room in such a brief issue, it’s hard not to look forward to seeing how far this can go. Learning more about the Annihilators and seeing more gorgeous still-choreography is more than enough to deserve readership. Drew Spence might just have something really special at his fingertips, but it’s too early to judge that as of now.

Pros:
Action
Soundtrack
Intriguing concept
Unique art-style

Cons:
Bland characters
Limited scope
Awkward lettering
Emotionless models

Final Judgement: 7.4

Music Review DOMINO GREY “We Can Go Dancing” by THE MUSIC FEED

Domino Grey Butterfly Affect Part I EP: Facial Recognition Technology

“We Can Go Dancing”

“Domino Grey Promises Music That’s Rhythmic

Fun, and Great to Dance To”

“Domino Grey is a child of rhythm. A quick perusal of his music makes a strong case for the validity of this statement. Grey’s style is characterized by driving percussion, deep grooves, and a lighthearted, dance-y sense of fun. It calls to mind the funky ambiance of Royksopp,  Lindstrom, or Junior Boys. Grey has previously released two EPs in 2011, with styles ranging from instrumental hip-hop to nu jazz, and is looking to continue advancing his eclectic, dynamic sensibilities.”
