Apama is a truly wonderful independent comic book created by some film maker from the Cleveland area. The story even takes place in the vicinity of Cleveland, Yes. Cleveland, Ohio, Which might also explain why no one has discovered the apama, since everyone ignores Cleveland. Anyway, creators Ted Sikora and Milo Miller created Apama as a film project about a super-hero. Then they created the comic that the main character in the movie was trying to create. Got it? Well, you don't really need to know all the background to understand the comic, because it's just about the comic character.
But I must now tell you of the thing that attracted me to Apama in the first place. Benito Gallego does the best John Buscema imitation I've ever seen on the pages of this book. And I mean that in a totally positive way! Benito captures the very best qualities of Big John, who is my favorite comic artist of all time! The art if wonderfully 70's-Marvel, which fits the story perfectly. I just can't really say more but to show some examples here.
I eagerly anticipate more!
