Colder vol. 2: The Bad Seed! This week!

COLDERBS-MOCK-UP-R4-600x923

It’s FINALLY time for Juan Ferreyra and I to continue the story of Declan and Reece, in our Eisner and Bram Stoker nominated horror story… Colder.

We know you’ve just been waiting… and waiting. Us, too!

tumblr_nby198dadW1s2wio8o1_500

Juan and I have been working hard behind the scenes, though, deciding how we wanted the next two arcs to play out. The first step was coming up with this fine fellow.

Screen shot 2014-10-21 at 10.32.50 AM

His name is Swivel. He’s swell. Invite him to all your parties. Here’s some art-in-progress of him being swell.

Screen shot 2014-10-21 at 10.27.58 AM

See? Swell. The above sequence turned out really incredibly well. Juan does an AMAZING job of bringing our warped ideas to life. I couldn’t be happier than to work with him.

FullSizeRender(1)

Our Bram Stoker nomination only talked about me. Ridiculous. I took a marker to it and served justice. Comics are a team sport. Editors Scott Allie and Daniel Chabon have been a huge part of Colder as well, and of course Nate Piekos, our letterer. All one team.

Screen shot 2014-10-21 at 10.53.28 AM

An upcoming page, with Declan, Reece, and foreshadowing.

An, in closing, COLDER VOL TWO, THE BAD SEED, IS OUT THIS WEEK!!! And, why should you read it? Well, for the same reason that Juan and I make the comic…

Prometheus # 1… THIS WEEK!!!

tumblr_n5mfycqDyE1s01qkyo1_500

It’s time! This week, our big Prometheus, Aliens, Predator, Aliens vs. Predator mega-series BEGINS! Artist Juan Ferreyra and I are humbly pleased to present the launch title for the project that links all these worlds.

23594-0c27b

We’ve put a LOT of work into these comics, working in tandem with the other writers… Josh “Nailbiter” Williamson on Predator, Chris “Edison Rex” Roberson on Aliens, Christopher “High Crimes” Sebela on Aliens vs. Predator, and our project mastermind, Kelly Sue “Pretty Deadly” DeConnick on our concluding “Omega” issue.

The above image is the regular cover, but… looky… here’s a nice Paul Pope variant cover.

25879-eb43a

Prometheus, I assure you, is full of… ACTION!

tumblr_n6rrnl0dLH1s2wio8o1_500

Okay, maybe it’s not quite like the above, but there’s definitely action. And… honestly… I was mostly going for characterization. I feel that’s my strong point, and it’s the horror of the Prometheus / Aliens movies that have always resonated with me… the combined sense of NOT knowing what’s out there, and also being fully AWARE of what’s out there.

Screen shot 2014-09-08 at 11.19.32 AM

Here’s a look at the love that Juan puts into every panel. LOVE HIM BACK by purchasing Prometheus # 1, and maybe a few beers.

prometheus-panel-exclusive-3

Also… I would REALLY appreciate you picking up a copy of Prometheus # 1, because I’ve been waiting for SO long for this to come out, and… when it finally does… I’ll be at the dentist. Damn it.

And don’t forget it’s just the start of a lovingly constructed mega-series, with other books by talented folks, including Dave Palumbo, who did up this little ol’ painting for us!

Colder vol. 2: Get them orders in!

COLDEROF-1

It’s almost retailer order cut-off date for the second series of Colder, which begins in October. It really helps retailers (and me n’ co-creator Juan Ferreyra) if you let retailers know you need a copy, and that you would rather read Colder than sleep at nights! Thanks! And now, my go-to gif for the pain and sorrow of missing out on the good things in life.

Yes! The day is finally here!

Screen shot 2014-06-26 at 5.40.16 PM

Yes! It’s finally time for the official release of I Was The Cat, a graphic novel that Benjamin Dewey and I spent a couple years of our lives on, and it was all worth it, because we are proud as hell of this beauty. The story concerns Allison Breaking, a blogger who’s been hired to write the memoirs of the mysterious Burma, who turns out to be… a cat. You know all those paintings of megalomaniacal rulers with cats on their laps, all the historical despots with cats? Yeah… well it turns out that all of those cats were Burma, leading past lives, trying to take over the world. HE was the true mastermind behind these kings and conquerors, but he failed each time, and paid for his failures with eight of his nine lives. And now, on his last life, he just wants to take it easy. Or DOES he…? That’s what Allison has to figure out as she records the tale of… I Was The Cat.

Here’s the handy Comic Shop Locator service, if you’re not sure of your closest comic store’s location. If you can’t get to a comic store, nab up a copy from online, such as from HERE.

BANDETTE: The comic Colleen Coover and I create to make everyone (including us) happy.

koala

If that’s true, I think I can solve the problem. You see, you obviously haven’t had enough Bandette in your life! Bandette is the most charming comic that has ever existed. It has drama, romance, action, and intrigue. It has thieves. It has GLORIOUS thieves. It has dangerous men and beautiful women. It has dangerous women and ugly men. And spies. And candy bars. Bandette is, in short, an Eisner-winning foray into the delightful garden of comics.

Screen shot 2014-07-08 at 7.55.21 PM

tumblr_n8c36kG2911r3qv9to1_400

Above is an example of how hard the charm comes at you when reading Bandette, the story of the greatest thief in all existence, a teenage girl with a heart for adventure, a taste for chocolate, and a talented group of adoring urchins who help her fight crime, and occasionally to commit a bit of it themselves, because… you know… that thief thing.

Screen shot 2014-07-08 at 7.53.59 PM

cops

Calm down, Adam-12 cops, I can handle this. I’m going to show everyone some art from Bandette.

Screen shot 2014-07-08 at 7.53.34 PM

Bandette has won the Eisner award for Best Digital Comic, and garnered nominations for Best Art, Best Colors, and Best Series. Pretty spiffy, huh?

why

Don’t cry, Exceptionally Well-Painted Girl. It’s NOT too late! Bandette can be ordered HERE in digital form, from the fine folks at MonkeyBrain and Comixology. And it’s in print from Dark Horse Comics as well. You can order the nicely-priced hardcover right HERE!

Batman would probably approve of Bandette. Except for that “thief” thing. He doesn’t like that. Don’t nobody tell him that part.

Bandette readers, for sure.

Screen shot 2014-07-08 at 7.55.45 PM

Yes! Go and order Bandette, either in DIGITAL FORM, or the wonderful HARDCOVER EDITION, with so many extras!

Curious about Bandette? Let me explain this in simple terms. Bandette is the world’s greatest thief, and Bandette is the world’s most charming adventure comic.
