The latest issue of Adrenaline is out… and it bears some bad news in the letter column.
Unfortunately, this will be the last individual issue published in print format since Diamond distributors have decided to drop the title. Have no fear, for we will continue to produce the remaining four issues online. We will then publish the complete series in trade paperback form in early 2008.
I’m glad to hear that — not about them being dropped, although that’s unsurprising for any small press comic series these days — but that they’re going to continue in alternate venues, because the story has grabbed me.
The reality show challenge this issue involves scuba diving, which allows for some gorgeous underwater art. One team demonstrates their lack of loyalty, while another chooses saving a life over winning the task. Plus, there’s more insight into what motivates one of the competitors.
This story is action-packed enough that any issue is too short. When I read one, I want it to keep going, so a longer collection will be just the thing. I’m looking forward to seeing that next year.
