Comic Boss Interviews ~ Kiru Comics




Tell us about K.I.R.U Comics and what Kiru stands for?

Kiru comics is an independent brand that creates and promotes original, multicultural and socially responsible titles.
KIRU stands for Knowledge, Imagination, Responsibility, and Understanding... these are values we try to keep in mind in everything we do, each of our projects has some aspects of these 4 values in them.


I've become a fan of the Almier series tell us about that?

Ah I'm glad you like our work. Almier is a manga project that I've (Hameed Catel) been working on for a while; The Almier are a supernatural people with intentions to put their powers to political use and make the world a better place however they have to overcome a lot of obstacles to do so. It's a big story with multiple characters that takes readers on fantastical adventures around the world whilst at the same time acting as a reflection of our world. 
I wasn't sure how well it would be perceived by the people which is why I used the first season as a tester, to gauge the reception. It seems like people resonate more with Hakim's story so we'll probably focus a lot more on that going forwards.

What is an Almier?
An Almier is simply an individual with stronger than average will power; able to use the power of their soul (a.k.a the flame) to do incredible things. There are two general distinctions to the Almier, the realists who are able to enhance their physical attributes with the flame and the dreamers; who are able to do the unthinkable.



Tell me more about the main character Hakim? 

Hakim is a hyperactive young teenager of African descent living in London. He's mischievous and loves to be a clown but can also have very deep insights into simple things around him.  He gets dragged into this world of big decisions and bigger egos. I think people like him the most because he's quite relatable and although he is flawed in many ways, he has a good heart and tends to listen to it most of the time. 



What other characters should people look out for?

Well like I said, going forwards we will be focusing more on the London story line because that's what people seem to resonate more with. So in that respect look out for the characters such as  Sebastian, Michael Richardson (the bank hero), Dr. David and definitely watch out for the return of the mandem. 



You have a go fund me account for the second season what can we expect in the second season?

In the second season, you can expect a more action packed and character orientated story. Things will escalate a very quickly and you will see another side to Hakim, one that you haven't seen before. Also, we will be showing more of the other side meaning Dr. David and the Visionaries as well as Jospeh Reznick and his "Counter Strike Programme" initiative.


Hope I've answered the questions to your liking. If you need anything else, don't hesitate to get in touch.

Valerian and the city of 1000 planets(A Salty Review)

By Corey Floyd This summer we have been hit with a lot of movies as usual. But one of them I had so many questions about. This movie was Valerian. It’s based off a graphic novel. The film was written and directed by Luc Besson the mind behind The Fifth Element, Taken series and Transporter series. With a stellar trailer with beautiful visuals, you would think this was a cinematic slam dunk right?   While this film is very heavy with beautiful CGI visuals that tell a narrative without words when the main actors step they drag this film from the depths of space to a crappy SYFY movie. Our main character  Major Valerian is played by Dane DeHaan. Most people should remember him from The Amazing Spider Man 2 as Harry Osborn and Andrew Detmer from the hit film Chronicle. His co star is Cara Delevingne. She was the woman who played the Enchantress in the universally panned but financially successful Suicide Squad. I have a few problems with these two that affect this movie in a big way. Despit…

Not a Single Potato Chip was Eaten! Thoughts on The Netflix Death Note Adaptation.

By Luiggi Cavanna
Let me start with that this is not so much as review but more of comparison between the Netflix original and it’s source material. For a review go check out our local movie critic, Corey Floyd, he wrote an insightful review on this movie. Now let’s get on with this train wreck.
Two will go in just one will come out... LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!
I’m going to say this, if you like the manga/anime, you are going to HATE this movie! This is coming from a guy that wrote a blog about how we should give the live action adaptation a chance and that we shouldn’t hate before it comes out. Well it is out now, so we can hate on it.
L: “Man this movie is ASS!”
Ok! Let's start dissecting this ugly specimen by comparing the characters of the movie with their anime counterparts. What better place to start than with the main protagonist Light!
I’m going to need a drink….. And I don’t drink!!
Oh boy this is going to be something! The Light from the source material was an incredibly smar…
