was supposed to be a twelve issue, bi-monthly comic book limited series techno-thriller-sci-fi epic to be published by then Archaia Studios Press, written by Josh Finney with art by Josh Finney and Kat Rocha. Issue #1 was released last June 5, 2008 to raves from fans and critics alike. Unfortunately due to unforeseen restructuring by Archaia we have never seen issue 2 and beyond. Now, thanks to Archaia being back on track, we are finally getting Titanium Rain, though with some changes to the series: instead of being a 12 issue series it’s now going to start with 2 double issues so we’ll see issues 1-2 for this month and (hopefully) issues 3-4 in the next one. The heart of Titanium Rain is contrasts and dynamic opposites, deep philosophy and gripping action side by side. This thematic tension drives every page from a simple game of poker becoming a vehicle for exposition and a metaphor for global geopolitics circa 2031, to the harrowing dogfight at the end of the book. The Art itself is fantastic, pushing the envelope for comic books; it is ultra-realistic, nice and clean, the faces of the characters so well-defined and represented you'd almost think they are real people rendered into art by software. This helps set the book up so well it gives you the futuristic feel to go along with the setting. Well worth the download. This is one series I'd immediately buy.
