New Webcomic, The Whisper

New Webcomic, The Whisper

A new webcomic series, coming from one of my spotlight artists, Jamie Jones looks to bring comic fans into the Patreon era. The first issue is up on Jamie Jones and friends Patreon page already! The story jumps back and forth between a group of fellow heroes talking about their friend, The Whisper, and action scenes in the past fighting the ever villainous Nazi scientists. Once again, I can not express how much I love Jones’s art style. It has that classic golden age feel of the strong and bold lines and characters, while still being a part of the modern era with brilliantly colored panels and models.

The concept of what this story is trying to tell is already amazing to me. Heroes discussing what made a hero who he was, not just his ideology or origin, but how he taught, why he faught and so on. Everything about the hero was his legacy and who will put on that mantle. In an age when DC and Marvel kill off heroes to get a gasp and rise in sales (only to bring them back a year later, sometimes less), it is real refreshing to read a story such as this not just for that spike in issue sales, but just to read it for what it is, the legacy passing on.

“The Whisper is an ongoing anthology comic that will be released in chapters; each one a self-contained 5 page short story, every month. It’s exclusive to Patreon, meaning this is going to be the only place you can read it! Each short is written by a different writer, with every story drawn by artist and series mastermind Jamie Jones.”

“As creators, we’re always looking for new ways to tell stories, and we’ve found one in THE WHISPER that we’re very excited about. It’s a book about the concept of legacy in superhero comics. Each chapter, which will all be written by different writers, will focus on a different incarnation of a superhero called The Whisper. Our first chapter, which is also written by Jamie Jones, focuses on the first and second incarnations of the character, and later chapters will see the mantle taken up everywhere from the present

day to the distant future. The complete product, as it gets longer, will form a larger tapestry filling out the history of this identity and the men and women who take it up to fight for the greater good.

● For just $1​ you get the comic. Fully colored. Fully realized.

● For $5​ you get the comic AND bonus material detailing the creative process – which will be different with every story! Sketches, Scripts, Pencils. All of it!

● For $10​ you get the comic, the content and the chance to hang out with the creative team! Google hangout, that is.”

“How Patreon works.

The first issue is on the site for free. Read it and if you like it pledge the amount you would like to each month. The whole system works like the pull box at your LCBS. Before the issue comes out you subscribe to the next issue. You are not charged until the issue comes out. You will then be sent the issue that month as a pdf in your inbox.

The only real difference is you know exactly where your money is going. It is going to the 2 people who make the comic that month. You are directly funding creators to create content for you!”

Born in Boston MA, raised in NH. Fully functioning adult who happens to read any and every comic under the (yellow)sun. Of course there are the favorite comics I must read when they're released, but any comic is fair game in my eyes. Of course my love for pop culture doesn't end with comics, but branches out to movies, toys, video games and most importantly Dungeons and Dragons (which I withheld this last hobby from my Fiancée until she said "Yes"). Point of Origin for my nerdy condition may have been in '93 when I got slimed at Nickelodeon(now closed), and a teenage accident or two(collapsed lungs) landing me in the hospital around the same time the Tobey Maguire Spiderman movies started coming out. When my dad stopped at the local comic store and brought me the essential comics for Spiderman and the X-Men, I stood no chance. (Which also created a secret aspiration to start a fundraiser of sorts to bring comic books to kids in hospitals to keep their spirits up(nothing has come of this to date)) Add in a heavy dose of trip to Disney World, upcoming Disney themed wedding and a career aspiration to become a Disney Imagineer, I think it's safe to say I never want to grow up.
