It's nauseating, inhumane and despicable.…"Ayre Force" IS a celebration of ego. It's blatantly a vanity project. It KNOWS it and admits it. But, it's not a pointless celebration of ego. Here there is a specific agenda beyond self promotion. It's also not an unprofessional vanity project. It's well drawn at least.I've only looked at the preview, here: The comic seems to promote violent vigilantism. But maybe that's standard fair for comics these days.BoDog seems to be a mix of gambling, mixed martial arts and cheesecake bordering on soft core misogyny. Elayne Riggs would have a field day, if she can keep her lunch down. Force is an interesting novelty, But at $19.95 and just 96 pages, Ayre Force is an over-priced vanity project. There is nothing in the art, story or concept to recommend it THAT much.

    Wow! I totally disagree with your Ayre Force review. I was at Comic Con NY, bought the book there, got it signed by the entire creative team, and got pics of me with the sexy Ayre Force girls. I thought the story was cool and the art was wild! The fact that all the money goes to charity, too… I'm happy with with my purchase!
