Out: The Wicked + the Divine #21

image

With a solicit which basically read FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! you may get a subtle feeling what this is about. Our pop video as action comic reaches its penultimate issues and the stakes are higher even than the heels. Well, mostly.

What am I writing?

You can get it from your local comic shop, or digitally either from Comixologyor direct from Image. The actual Preview is here.

Out: Cinema Purgatorio #3

The anthology continues, and Modded continues does Modded things. In this one, basically a Super Meat Boy analogue fights a Dark Soul analogue in a little formalist fighty thing. Also, Ignacio continues to my favourite monsters. Yay!

Just finished my first draft of issue 7 today, which I enjoyed far too much. I’m scratching all sorts of bizarre itches.

You can buy it from your local retailer, or via Comixology or DRM free from Comics Cavalcade.

Out Today: Darth Vader #22

END OF GAMES continues its merry way on and… well, this one is Darth Vader versus a cybernetic Rancor. Do I really have to say more?

It’s available from your local comic shop or digitally. Preview here.

Out Now: Mercury Heat #10

Due to yesterday being busy, didn’t get a chance to post about this. The fourth part of this arc of Mercury Heat, where things continue to be rather silly. To choose one random panel I saw someone reblog…

Out Today: The Wicked + the Divine 20 and Darth Vader 21

We reach the middle of RISING ACTION and we finally get around to explaining how Laura’s still alive. It’s quieter, but I suspect there will be a strong response to this one. On a structuralist level, when I originally conceived this book as 40 issues, having this be issue 20 is very on point. This is the abyss in the middle of the book. Er… there’s a few jokes though. Plus Cassandra’s back, and she’s very much on form.

(It won’t be 40 issues now – we’ll almost certainly be longer)

You can get it from your local comic shop, or digitally either from Comixology or direct from Image. The actual Preview is here.

END OF GAMES continues, with Darth Vader tracking down Cylo… while our friendly neighbourhood Murder Droids try to locate Aphra and apprehend her, in their own inimitable style.

This one was fun.

Out Now: Cinema Purgatorio #2

(Well, there’s a cover for each story, but this is mine.)

The second issue of the Alan Moore curated anthology is out. My contribution is Ignacio Calero and my Modded. Last issue was very much the core concept of the book. This is where we slowly start dialing up the weirdness. Hope you like it.

You can buy it from your local retailer, or via Comixology or DRM free from Comics Cavalcade.

Out Now: Darth Vader #20

Start of a new arc in an over-sized issue. END OF GAMES is basically where everything goes climatic. This issue has a tight focus, and features some of my favourite scenes of drama in the entire run, so I hope you enjoy them as much as I did writing them. Plus, a back up story about BeeTee and 000 which explores their origins a little, with the usual helping of murder. 

If you want to know more, I did a long interview here.

New book time! 

When Alan Moore asks you if you want to be part of an anthology, you say yes. In my case, you say “Yes”  and contribute a story that is basically R-rated Pokemon in the style of The Fast and the Furious, in a Mad Max universe.

It’s also a device for me to talk about videogames, in the broadest sense. I hope it works for those who are complete obsessives of the form and those who know absolutely nothing. It starts iconic and light, and then builds to something which I’m still not exactly sure about. It’s its own world, that just happens to map onto a cultural history of the art form I spent the majority of my adult life writing about.

Primarily though? It’s funny. I hope you like it.

Oh – here’s a big interview about it, which talks a lot more about it, as well as capturing some of the tone of the book.

In passing – Ignacio Calero is a force of nature, and I think people are going to flip over him.

And Rising Action continues over in WicDIv, where I’m sure everyone just talks reasonably and talks it out. My proudest element is having a scene set in a south London fried chicken place, which is apex Write What You Know. Lots of fun stuff, I think. Hope you enjoy it.

(Plus – that Kris Anka cover, right?)
