My previous post about Take A Chance garnered some interest and a few requests for more. So here you go.

Note: Includes some NSFW language. One four-letter word, anyway.

7 pages from Issue 2 )

Anyway, like I said, I've got all 5 issues... but I'm not sure about posting more. I don't want to give away too many plot twists if the TPB ever does hit the market. (Meantime, back issues are available on Amazon and elsewhere.) Thoughts?

Take A Chance is the first comic book venture from Urban Fantasy writer C.E. Murphy. (I'd highly recommend her "Negotiator" trilogy to any fans of Disney's Gargoyles. It was born, in part, of a love of the series, though there's more to it than that.)

It was published this year as a 5-issue miniseries. The trade was due out in November, but got pushed back. Then the publisher, Dabel Brothers, got swallowed up by another company, so the future of the series is unclear. Shame, since it's pretty cool.

7 1/3 pages out of the first issue )

This isn't the best issue of the series, but as an intro, it's not bad. It's a strong, independent female hero. With what I like to think of as the "Batman factor" - non-powered vigilante kicking copious amounts of butt in a world full of powered individuals. And, although it shows up more in later issues, the series takes a deliberate stance against many common superhero tropes (as gets pointed out in the narration boxes from time to time), adding at least a shade more realism. But still with that sense of superhero butt-kicking fun. And some interesting plot twists along the way.

I've got all five issues. I can post more if there's interest.
