Hello El Moochadores! I’ve been trying to get this post written for the last couple of days now, but life keeps getting in the way. Anyways…
I recently finished reading Arin Leviti’s new indie comic Atlantis: The last Survivor, and its pretty damn good. Featuring illustrations by Giuseppe Cafaro and colors by Federico Blee, this fantasy story takes readers to the magic filled Atlantis and follows the adventure of lovers Agathon and Phile. Here’s the proper synopsis:
Agathon, the son of a member of the resistance, is kidnapped and taken to the capital where he discovers that everything his parents had taught him is true. His only hope rests on the mysterious demigoddess Phile and Temacles, a member of the resistance who has infiltrated the oligarchy.
Agathon and Phile, united by their love and the hope for a new beginning, fight a battle against time to restore the Flux, overthrow the High Priestess and save Atlantis from itself.
As far as independent works go this is definitively top tier. Carfaro and Blee’s talent as illustrators is on full display here and they do a great job of bring Leviti’s fantasy story to life. I really enjoyed this book. So much so, that I even went back (after getting a review copy) and paid for it just to make sure I do my part to keep the story going. Okay, true the books a bargain. You can get a digital copy of issue #1 on Comixology for only $0.99, but I’m broke right now! $1.00 is actually huge for me! It’s all relative folks. So, yeah, absolutely go pick up a copy of Atlantis: Last Survivor and have something cool to read over this nice holiday break. Well, nice for others. I gotta go back to work. damn.

Good evening El Moochadores! I kind of feel like I haven’t done enough to highlight cool new independent projects lately. Both Chudd and I agree that we would like Atomic Moo to be more about geek creativity and artistic endeavors. So, in the spirit of the very awesome, yet under-funded, please turn your attention to this fantastic looking interactive graphic novel: Atlantis: the Last Survior! Here’s the synopsis:
In the last days of Atlantis, a handful of men fight to save humankind from extinction. Atlantis has conquered almost the whole world but its people have forgotten the roots of their power, the flux. This life-giving energy once sustained humans and gods alike, and united them on earth.
A religious tyrant, the High Priestess, abused the powers of the flux to enslave the population and expand her power. As the energy was poisoned, the gods fled earth and nature turned against the land.
Agathon, the son of a member of the resistance, witnesses the murder of his parents at the hands of the High Priestess. He is then kidnapped and taken to the capital where he discovers that everything his parents have taught him about the flux is true. His only hope now rests on the demi-goddess, Phile, and Temacles, a member of the resistance who has infiltrated the oligarchy.
Agathon and Phile, united by their love for each other and the hope for a new beginning, fight a battle against time to restore the flux, overthrow the High Priestess and save Atlantis from itself.
The graphic novel is written by Arin Leviti and illustrated by Denis Medri with music by Elisabeth Cirelli! I’m already a fan of Medri’s work (he does the great Super Hero art like Rockabilly Batman) and an interactive graphic novel sounds interesting. Check out their Kickstarter via the link above to see the cool stuff you can get for donating, or follow the project on Facebook! I’ve posted a few sample images below as well as the Kickstarter video.
