Comic Book Review: The Sire # 1

image-2
When I first started exploring the convention scene, I talked to many other creators.  One of the first indie comics that i picked up was  was The Sire.  Unfortunately, I packed it away and wasn’t able to read it… until now. I’m glad that I finally did because its a really cool comic. What’s the premise, you ask? Well, officially it goes like this: Donald Wright was a lowly assistant looking for a way to impress his boss, when his life was changed forever! Now he’s the SIRE, a superhero transformed against his will, forced to fight evil by his own costume. When the very same alien energy force connected to his costume begins wreaking havoc on the globe, it’s up to the SIRE to uncover the truth and somehow save the Earth from a technology mogul hell bent on its destruction!
Michael Dolce is the Writer/Creator of this comic.I think he’s done a good job at showing us something we haven’t seen before. In this case, the “hero” being forced to be such.  It’s fresh and exciting with a huge mystery at the center of it all: who’s controlling the costume.  He’s put out eight issues so far and i hope he continues beyond.
