Foster #1: I Won!

Who says you can't win anything on Twitter? I follow my favorite comic shop, Midtown Comics, and occasionally they'll have a giveaway where if you follow and retweet them, you can win any number of things (usually a signed copy of a comic book).

Last Thursday was their latest contest. Well, after trying for quite a while, I retweeted Midtown Comics and won! It's a copy of creator-owned comic book Foster #1 signed by the writer and creator, Brian Buccellato. For those of you who don't know, Brian Buccellato is currently co-writer for a little comic book, I don't know if you've ever heard of it, THE FLASH.

I just read Foster #1 last night, it's really good stuff. It's about Eddie Foster, a rundown, alcoholic war veteran trying to deal with his own emotional demons in a really eerie city. Scattered throughout the shadows of this city are creatures known as dwellers that terrorize humans.

Eddie Foster runs into a little boy named Ben and the events that follow test his will and make you wonder if he's strong enough to be a true hero. The story and setting make for a great combination of thriller, action, and drama that definitely keep you invested in the characters. The art, done by Noel Tuazon, really fits the plot and gives it kind of a rugged, creepy vibe. It's really well done and I encourage you to check it out.

I can't wait for issue #2.
