issue #2 review by
Steve Saville is here!
|"This places the comic somewhere between comics such as Astro City with its complex heroes struggling to deal with their humanity as well as their responsibilities as larger than life protectors of the city and The Tick with its farcical parody of super heroes. It is obvious that this is a position that Heroes in Birmingham is quite comfortable with...Ultimately though this comic works and deserves to be widely read. The humour is appropriate and nicely paced. The pace of the story is great; action is interspersed with flashback and dialogue. It has a great cliffhanger of an ending, which leaves me eager for Issue 2." HUNGRY FOR MORE OF THIS REVIEW? CLICK HERE.|

THE COMIC BOOK NETWORK ELECTRONIC MAGAZINE (CBEM) started in February of 1995 as a way for the members of a BBS network devoted to comic books and related subjects to spread their views on comics and the industry with anyone who had access to Email or the World Wide Web. Over the years it has become one of the most reliable sources of current information, insightful reviews, and a forum for over a thousand readers to share their love of comic books every week.
Paul's bio (cribbed from CBEM):
Paul promotes amateur and professional comic book artwork,scripts, storylines, and unpublished comic books with a newsletter called the Peoples' Comic Book Newsletter. Its website is at Jazma Comic Book Newsletter Productions at http://www.jazmaonline.com/ He is also a prominent letter hack, as anyone who reads comic letter pages would know. He is in production of his own self-published comic book called The Legendary Dark Silhouette and has copyrighted over 600 characters for his Jazma Universe.
|Comments: Man, I love this comic book!
The artwork is amazing! It's done in black and white, but
there are plenty of details to the artwork! So, there is
plenty to see on each panel! We have some very, very cool
superheroes, not out of New York City, but out of
Birmingham. Some of the characters are: Tucker Stokes aka
the Solution; Giley Minkov aka N-Ergyzer; Mercutio Bishop
aka Flapjack and Cincinnati F-27 Pulse; Willow aka
Photonia and Aileen aka Roof Girl!
In this story, regular people are watching these fantastic superheroes on video and believe me they are impressed watching them. Especially seeing N-Ergyzer zipping around in his cool outfit. The year is 2063 and you'll get the day in the life of Mercutio Bishop...you'll get some good action and fighting, expect some pivot throws! Roof Girl is one of my favorites, she is spectacular and looks seductive in her outfit as she goes from roof-to-roof. ... This is not only about chasing the bad guys, these superheroes put more meaning to what a hero is supposed to mean and do.
After reading Heroes in Birmingham, I was left with a sense of joy and wonder, these superheroes are top-notch!
