Corrective Measures

Corrective Measures, from Arcana Comics and written/created by Grant Chastain is now up on! It's 147 pages, full color, and you can reach it by clicking the title of this post.

Now, why am I telling you about this book? Two reasons. One, it's really good. Two, I lettered the last chapter of the trade. :)

The book is about a maximum security prison for former super-villains, and the trials of keeping those inmates in check. But it's not anywhere near what you think it would be. This isn't The Vault, The Raft, or Arkham Asylum. This is like a real world prison. In six issues super powers came into play I think once.

See, it's not about the powers, and it's certainly not about tights and capes in the least bit, so far. This is a prison drama that takes a very real world, innovative look at super criminals. It's very well written with beautiful artwork that really tells a unique story. And it doesn't end with this trade either. I know there are probably two more trades worth of material in the works, which yours truly will be lettering.

All that said, this is a very mature book for violence, sexual innuendos, and intense language. I don't normally find myself pulled to that sort of material, but this book is very well written, as I've already said. I can't recommend it enough for the story and the characterization alone.

And if you buy the trade, it looks gorgeous as well. I was sent a copy a couple of days ago, the first time I'd seen the whole story, and the production value of the trade is nearly flawless. I'm sure it can be found at Arcana's site somewhere, or on Ronin's.

And if that's not enough to convince you, check out the trailer below:

So download it or buy it, just make sure you read it!

According to wowio's site, people who bought corrective measures also purchased 'XXXena: Warrior Pornstar 01'. Very interesting... =)

LOL. wow, ok. Well, it's not THAT mature, or I wouldn't have worked on it. Interesting indeed. 80
