The Creators Volume One By Michael S Bracco Kickstarter Cover

If you have not heard of Michael S. Bracco, you are certainly in for a treat! Previously having published such titles as Novo and Adam Wreck through Alterna Comics, I only discovered Bracco’s work about two years ago while reviewing the first chapter of his web series, The Creators. I was amazed at the quality of storytelling and illustrations that this comics creator was offering – for free – online, and surprised that no publisher had yet snatched his series up.

Check out the synopsis and interview with Bracco below.

The Creators Imagination Is Power Cover by Michael Bracco

The Creators, Volume 1: Imagination is Power
Written and Illustrated by Michael S. Bracco
The Creators Comic
Release Date: Ongoing, Bi-weekly
Cover Price: Free!

It’s only so often that I become invested in every aspect of a comic book: from the story, to the illustrations, to each individual character; but with The Creators, Volume 1: Imagination is Power, Michael Bracco has crafted such an intricate and passionate tale that, from the get-go, I had no trouble becoming wholeheartedly engrossed.

The Creators: Imagination is Power, tells the tale of Maya, a girl who can literally create living, emotionally charged beings (usually appearing as monstrous, yet alluring figures) from her drawings. After a devastating event occurs that forces Maya to create for protection, she enters the larger world of “Creators” — a world in which her kind are feared and at times, used for their abilities.

The Creators, Chapters 2 & 3
Written and Illustrated by Michael S. Bracco
The Creators Comic
Release Date: Ongoing, Bi-weekly
Cover Price: Free!

A few months back, I did a review of the first chapter in Michael S. Bracco’s hauntingly fantastic webcomic series, The Creators. Well, I’ve just finished up the second and third chapters and once again have to acknowledge the exceptional story that Bracco has created.

“Imagination is power.” That’s the tagline of The Creators, and speaks volumes to the depth of the series thus far. While the main character, Maya, is forced into a harrowing journey of self discovery, chapters two and three take many unexpected turns and offer a broader perspective and history of the power that the girl possesses.

“Let your imagination run wild.” This is a saying I’ve heard countless times growing up, as I’m sure many have; but what would you do if your imagination actually ran wild? What would the world do? In The Creators, a web comic created by Michael S. Bracco, this concept is put to the test and the result is devastating.

Maya is a Creator – a teenager with the ability to bring her drawings to life via emotional triggers; unfortunately, Creators are feared by humanity due to their inability to harness their powers and the multiple destructive situations that they’ve already caused across the country.

Part One

Release Date: September 2012
Cover Price: $9.99

Dude, straight up, this comic is pretty awesome. The pitch: A la The X-Men, every one in a million people will be blessed and cursed with a power that will develop in their awkward, pubescent teen years, but rather then popping claws or mastering magnetism or whatever-the-hell-it-is-Cable-does these kids get one specific power – to bring anything they imagine come to life through drawing. And just like that, you got a lovely set up for a meta story about comic book storytelling, the process of making comics itself, and disgruntled youth.

More to the point, The Creators inaugural issue focuses on Maya, a typical 16-year-old whose into fairy tales, art class, and whose begun showing signs that she’ll be gifted with this power and her parents as they react, quite reasonably, to balancing their new obligations of registering their daughter to the government which will ship her off to their Creator Academy and being loving parents.
