Mech Apocalypse by A.P. Fuchs

Exo-suits, mech-bots, and sophisticated vehicles crashing and bashing! Gatling guns, missile launchers, and lasers spraying and blazing—and in the far future to boot! That’s what to expect from A.P. Fuchs’ latest military sci-fi epic, Mech Apocalypse. The action never stops, and only becomes more intense with each turn of the page. The fate of the past rests in the hands of a group of soldiers whose resolve is tested again and again as they confront high authority, go behind enemy lines, and even into the unknown in an attempt to unravel a threatening mystery that’s sure to spell doom for all if not stopped in time. Brace yourself for gut-wrenching super warfare of titanic proportions.

Axiom-man No. 1 (Comic Book) by A.P. Fuchs

When I was a kid, I loved watching any superhero-themed cartoon or show that came on TV. Strangely enough, other than coloring books, I never actually saw them in print. The only comic books I remember seeing were about Archie and his friends. I didn’t even know about comic book stores or hobby shops for that matter. They just didn’t seem to exist in the area where I lived. For some reason, I don’t remember seeing them in retailers like K-Mart, either. Of course, that was long, long ago, so maybe they just eluded me. Either that or I wasn’t looking in the right places. However, in 1993, I begin collecting mainstream comics at a little convenient store every now and then for about a year or so.

These days I’ve been reading A.P. Fuchs’s Axiom-man novels, and this indie-created character has now easily replaced Superman, Batman, and Spider-man, who were once three of my all-time favorite characters. Were A.P. Fuchs a superhero himself, one of his powers would probably be vast fortitude, because that’s what it takes to single-handedly run a company that not only has published for others, but for himself as well. This Axiom-man comic is just an example of one person’s determination (and love of the art) to make his creation available for others to enjoy.

Axiom-man: City of Ruin by A.P. Fuchs

Readers have fun…it’s looking bleak…for Axiom-man and the turf he protects, that is…and that’s a good thing. Because within A.P. Fuchs’ Axiom-man: City of Ruin, it couldn’t get any bleaker. This story is a non-stop thrill ride of action and horror. You’ll literally grind your teeth as the hero dives, dodges, and zips about Winnipeg—each scenario more deadly than the one before. How will The Cobalt Crusader overcome a villain made of pure darkness, and the insurmountable odds that await him? Can the love of Gabriel Garrison’s life survive her hasty decision? The answers, of course, are just a click away.

Metahumans vs Werewolves by A.P. Fuchs

Praise for volume two of the ongoing Metahumans Series with Metahumans vs Werewolves.

Quite some time ago, when I read the enjoyable Metahumans vs the Undead, I figured that it was just a one-time, stand-alone anthology. Boy was I wrong…and I’m glad I was wrong, too.

Metahumans vs Werewolves delivers action, mystery, and horror, via diverse storylines. No two werewolves are alike, either: they’re ghostly, furry, white, silver, brown, black, large, larger, and largest; feral, clever, and cerebral; new, old, and ancient.

The same goes for the heroes. All types are present: the dark vigilante (with and without powers), the subhuman-like, the mutant, those with gadgets, those with magic (those with both), the supernatural, the futuristic and technological, the afflicted, the golden age, and the mild-mannered, super-gifted.

Something else I noticed about the Metahumans Series didn’t come to me until after I’d purchased volume two. These stories (these books), in my opinion, seem to be like a new era of pulp…maybe a revival…a sort of tribute to yesteryear, possibly. Even something about the wonderful artwork makes me think of those now priceless covers from long ago. Maybe it’s just me, I don’t know…but, if I’m right about the tribute, then it is a tribute done well. Congratulations to the artists, writers, editors, and all who were responsible for putting together such a nice piece of treasure.

Axiom-man by A.P. Fuchs

Axiom-man by A.P. Fuchs sparked in me a “sense of wonder”, reminding me of those experiences when I first encountered superheroes as a child. A great deal of care went into the creation of this particular mythos. I cannot stress this enough: Axiom-man is a must-read for anyone that loves superheroes, or for anyone who just wants to be entertained by a superb story from a superb writer.
