Similar Graphic Novels in the Market
« on: August 23, 2010, 08:46:59 PM »
Dynamite comics launches Ani-Max - 20th August 2010:
http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=preview&id=6154&disp=table



'12-year old Max Duncan becomes the most powerful boy in the world when he gains the power to absorb the abilities and physical characteristics of any animal he touches. Lost and separated from his family during a vacation  in the dense Amazon jungle, Max is chosen by the Earth Spirits as the latest in a long lineage of planetary defenders. Entrusted with a mystical artifact known as the Animus Stone, Max gains the power to absorb the abilities of any animal he touches and transform himself into a human-animal hybrid for seven minutes at a time. Taking on the attributes of lizards, lions, tigers, elephants, spiders, dolphins, and more - sometimes the transformations are gross, weird and bizarre – Max has a power no one else in the world seems to have. Joined by his faithful friends, Chris and Jenny, the three young heroes gradually find a way to use Max’s abilities to protect the planet and all its many creatures. Now in development as an animated series.'

Thought this was interesting, for the similar concepts to the Animorphs. I mean, Max Duncan, alias Ani-Max, and his friends 'taking on the attributes of animals for SEVEN minutes at a time...'

And wanted to know if anyone has read it...

I really want to know which animal he touches to turn into a robot on that cover. :D

Seems interesting ^^ I hope I can find it soon (but it's pretty new so I'll have to wait a little).
It looks a little like Ben 10, except that Ben 10 can become 10 aliens.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
There were another comics with almost the same title (Animax): http://mycomicpost.com/?p=15729#more-15729 I just found it here... I didn't read it, but you can. (PS: You can find a lot of comics on this website ;))

I think the characters only absorb characteristics and attributes of animals they touch. Not fully assuming their form. Kinda like that Petrolli dude from Heroes. Or Rogue from the X-Men.

Conversely, I had to take a photo of this once I saw it.

Does anyone recognize the typeface used in this Melbourne tram?!
