Turbulence Issue 1 Update

Hello everyone,

My name is Chris Garrett, I'm from Austin TX and I love comic books. I've been working on my comic Turbulence for a little over a year now and I'm really excited to say that issue 1 will be coming on December 30th in honor of Indy Comic Book Week.

Issue 1 comes in at 29 pages, (Issue 2 is getting closer to release as well, and rings in at 32 pages!)

Ok I've ranted enough, time for an awesome picture.

That's just one page of the comic. That's not even the cover. (But some people love it so much I'm thinking of doing a limited release 2nd cover) How sweet is that picture?

So here's the run down of what the comic is about:
Super powers are not granted through freak accidents or genetic defects. They are granted by a force known only as 'Efflux' which finds people (regardless of good and evil) that are dedicated to...well....anything.

Let's say, for example, your a tattoo artist who is obsessed with tattoo's. He might gain the ability to turn his hand into a tattoo gun, and as soon as you could scribble a bomb on a piece of paper, he could tattoo a bomb onto somebody, throw them into a wall and BOOM!

The story follows our hero Turbulence, he has had the powers since he was a kid (but didn't realize it) and has finally decided to join the leagues of super heroes...only issue is everybody seems to be a part of a team that beats him to the punch. (Get it...because you punch bad guys...)

But Gravnos, the leader of a local super team might have an eye for Turbulence joining....there's just one issue- and it involves a lady (doesn't it always?)

So if you want to find out what's going on, and I hope you do, head over to our website that has a much better domain name on the way soon!

Thank you very much and it's an honor to be a part of Indy Comic Book Week!
