Some reviews!

  • With each passing chapter of Colder, Tobin’s “chiller” of a story becomes more richly layered.  – HorrorNovelReviews.com
  • Colder is about things being wrong. It’s about reality being a thin veneer that sits on top of our worst nightmares. –ComicsAlliance.com

Next Week: MADE MEN #1!

mademen

Made Men #1 cover art by Arjuna Susini

The first issue of Made Men is coming from Oni Press to comic shops everywhere on Wednesday, Sept. 6! I’m very excited to have everyone see what Arjuna Susini and I have created!

I’ve been making the rounds, talking about the new series with various media outlets. Here’s an excerpt from a recent interview at SYFY.com:

SYFY: The story of Frankenstein has a rich history of being taken apart and put back together in new ways and new genres, but I don’t know that I’ve ever seen it mashed up with a gritty crime story. What initially inspired you to explore the potential in combining the two?

PAUL TOBIN: I think it was the wealth of crime dramas and detective shows on tv and in the movies, etc. Somebody is always getting murdered and then someone steps in, tracks down the murderer, either killing them or sending them off to prison, and there’s always this moment of, “Ta-dah! I solved everything!” But I was always thinking of how… no. They didn’t solve everything. That guy’s wife is still dead. That woman’s boyfriend was still murdered. And, as satisfying as it was to watch John Wick extract horrible vengeance… it didn’t change the fact that his dog was dead. So, I wanted some way for the good guys (or the good-ish guys, in this case) to step in and say, “Yeah. I really DID solve this. Your wife is alive and, incidentally, John Wick, here’s your dog.”

MADE MEN: Newsarama Interview

mademen

Made Men #1 cover by Arjuna Susini with colors by Gonzalo Duarte

The debut issue of Made Men is coming September 6! In a recent interview with Newsarama‘s Zack Smith, I talk about the series’ main character, Jutte Frankenstein, and the forces that drive her!

From the interview:

mademenspotNewsarama: How did you develop your main character, Jutte?

Tobin: I knew from the start that I wanted a female lead. Since the story is entwined with the Frankenstein mythos, it felt important that the star of the show wasn’t Victor Frankenstein 2.0. In fact, that’s a large part of the story, in that Jutte denied her heritage for years, wanting nothing to do with it. Now, her hand has been forced, and she’s taking alternate ways of expressing what being a Frankenstein means.

Read the interview at Newsarama.

MADE MEN Coming Sept. 6! Comicosity Interview

mademen

Made Men #1 cover by Arjuna Susini with colors by Gonzalo Duarte

The debut of Made Men is coming on September 6 from Oni Press! Check out this interview with me by Mexi Gremillion at Comicosity – we talk about how the Frankenstein mythos influenced the story and some of the themes that Made Men will be exploring as the title continues.

From the interview:

Mexi Gremillion: Why Frankenstein? What drew you to be inspired by that specific gothic tale? What brought you to creating a story around it?

Paul Tobin: It’s always been a huge influence on me. I remember watching the old films as a kid, and Victor Frankenstein was this incredible mix of genius and reckless madman. And the monster, literally raised from the dead, but as a composite creature, given life once more, but a new life: his old life and even his old world were incredibly out of reach. To him, he lived again. To the world, he was worse than dead. All of these various dichotomies are, I think rich avenues to study. I’ve always wanted to throw my hat into the ring and, more importantly, to go far beyond Victor, to explore other members of the Frankenstein family. History is rife in many areas with families that excel in the same areas: brothers who are incredible basketball players. Sisters who understand the intricacies of physics. That made me wonder, “Who else in the Frankenstein family had a talent for resurrection?”
