ED#1 Reviewed on Comicsverse!

comicsverse-logo

Gabriella Tutino published a brief analysis of Esoteric Dialogue #1 on comicsverse.com. She combed through the main aspects of the story and had some very complimentary things to say:

“The New World Conquest story works as a layered parody: on one hand, it mocks those who are constantly spouting conspiracy theories or trying to expose ‘the truth,’ and on the other it pokes fun at those who blindly believe everything around them. The idea that the ‘architects of society’ are really just kids trying to win a game is quite genius: it exhibits a power struggle, as well as the impulsive, unpredicted ways of fate.”

Esoteric Dialogue #1 extras

The story, characters, visual style and… well just about everything in ED#1 was the result of an evolution process. We had a lot of ideas, scratched most of them, and crafted the best ones draft after draft. Below are some of those ideas and Matt’s sketches that didn’t make it into the final book.

table1

An early drawing of the Illuminati performing a dark ritual in the form of a board game.

 

ad1

Drawings from an idea for a fake gimmick ad page.

gold1

Page from a “history” segment.

monsters1

An unfinished promo page featuring Bigfoot, the Mothman, a Grey alien, and a UFO. Oh yeah, and two teens slurping on each other.

politics1

An unfinished comic Matt was working on that showed a media-brainwashed dude that ends up blowing up the planet.

shelly1

A page from an old ED story idea about Shelly Shivers, an all-American girl who becomes a witch through playing D&D, which was inspired by the old Chick comic written by the infamous John Todd.

sitchin1

Another page from the “history” segment.

thoeries1

A promo page featuring poster-like panels of various conspiracy theories.

vatican1

A page from the very first ED story idea inspired by an interview I heard on Coast to Coast with George Noory about a child sacrifice that took place in the catacombs of the Vatican.
