RISING ACTION reaches its conclusion. KICK! SPLODE! THIS IS WHAT THEY WANT, etc.
Suffice to say it’s one which is worth reading before you risk any spoilers. We’re half-way through the story and it’s another big change of status quo. Hope you enjoy it.
Also, over on the tumblr, I’m doing the fandom’s 30 day challenge, doing a series of short essays on those topics. Up to Day 22 now, so lots of stuff. Go read.
The penultimate episode of Dark Vader. I’ve talked about this one a little before, and obviously don’t want to warp the experience, but it’s almost certainly the most unusual issue of the series. It’s basically our version of the Dagobah cave sequence, and we go deep Sith. I suspect people will either adore or despise this, and early feedback (thankfully) seems to lean to the former. Hope you find it interesting.
On a similar note…
The latest Darth Vader trade, collecting the third arc of the series (fourth including VADER DOWN). Star Wars goes Star WARS. Go gets!
The fourth trip to the dingy satanic(?!?!?!) cinema features all the usual favourites, plus the Ig-monster and my MODDED. In this issue we have pelvic weaponry, cameos from analogues of games writers and much more.
Oh – added bonus: here’s a caption I deleted at lettering as it was too self-indulgent even for me…
Which probably counts as a Ludocrats update.
Fresh Romance is the Eisner Award Nominated digital comic that myself and Christine Norrie did a short story for the collected edition, funded by Kickstarter. The general comic shop Oni edition is now out, and well worth getting.
Oh – Marguerite Bennett and
Rafael De Latorre’s new book is out this week. ANIMOSITY. Excited by it, though have yet to get a copy. I have read Ed and Sean’s KILL OR BE KILLED though, which is also out today, and awesome.
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?
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.
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…
Available at your local shop or digitally.
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)
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.
