Nola: Boom! Studios Ventures into Original Waters

Nola #1 - cover

As a New Yorker I’d always assumed that 9/11 was the definitive defining moment of America in the 21st Century — but now I’m wondering if the flooding of New Orleans was maybe just as important if not more so. My thinking is that while for the most part NYC has picked up as a city and has gone that New Orleans is never coming back. Yes it may still be there in a small way, but it will never be a major city again. In terms of the psyche of America this is huge as that city was unique and pre-dated the United States itself. So it’s interesting to see this topic spread out from documentaries into the world of fiction. So Nola #1 caught my eye, and it’s worth taking a closer look at.

The hero of this fictional story is Nola Thomas, who wakes up alone in a deserted New Orleans hospital — and then goes out on a trail of revenge. The artwork inside this book is by Damian Couceiro who has done a nice job with the quality. I was surprised to see that this book was published by Boom! Studios which had previously specialized in licensed titles based upon Pixar films. They’ve taken a nice chance here and comic book fans should at least give them the chance to try something new and check out this title which will be out on November 18th:
