THE CASE OF THE NIGHT THAT WOULDN’T END arrives in stores today from @onipress! It’s a standalone case, a one-in-done story following Dex on a late night stakeout.
STUMPTOWN #10 is the first time in a long while where I got to draw a complete story in one issue and also a comic that is mostly silent, both things that make for a really satisfying, fun to draw issue.
Greg (@ruckawriter) absolutely killed it with this story, putting together one of my favorite scripts to date and Ryan brought a great, moody vibe with the colors as we watch Dex struggle to figure out who is doing what with whom.
Here are the first pages that ran in the preview circulating online:
@imagecomics Solicitations for September 2016 are now available online and that includes THE FUSE #21!
Just a reminder that you can still pre-order all three issues of the new arc that have been solicited with your local comic shop- even if FOC has past, you can let them know you want to be onboard for the new issues of Volume 4.
It’s not too late to pre-order these issues and insure you will get them when they come out!
Here is the info for all three of the issues that are available for pre-order at this time. The new arc Constant Orbital Revolutions kicks off when THE FUSE #19 hits shelves on July 6th. @antonyjohnston has been killing it with this storyline, lots of fireworks for our favorite spacelocked homicide detectives.
Even writing this title line has me pinching myself- many comics have long periods of devlopment but this one really takes the cake. I think Marc started on this concept nearly 7 years ago and we probably started collaborating on it as far back as 2010, when we started wrapping up RESURRECTION at that time. So believe me when I say how excited and proud we are to have this book on shelves today. It was the first creator-owned book I got to build from the ground up and will remain one of my favorites.
BIG thanks to onipress for working with us and being so flexible as to make sure it saw the light of day, and to my longtime collaborator and pal Marc Guggenheim for his patience and support. This comic has been a passion project from the outset and time has only made me appreicate it that much more. Hope you guys enjoy it.
Paul and Nick are the guys who shoot the news. Filming car chases, fires, and shootouts in their busted-up rig, they put their (uninsured, unsalaried) lives on the line every night so that the good citizens of Los Angeles can get their daily update. But when a firefight between the LAPD and the MS-13 goes wrong, Nick and Paul find themselves on the run.
Next week there are a lot of great events happening around Image Expo (imagecomics) being in town, including some cool ones for both STUMPTOWN and THE FUSE:
Wednesday, July 1st: STUMPTOWN signing at Mission Comics in San Francisco:
That’s right, Bay Area! Our pal Greg Rucka (ruckawriter) is in town for Image Expo and we’ll be hanging out at missioncomics on Wednesday, talking about our various projects and other comics related topics. The timing is particularly good with the recent release of STUMPTOWN V3 and the start of a new arc (in stores now!) so drop by and get your books signed.
Friday, July 3rd: THE FUSE signings and reception/art show at Escapist Comics and TRICKSTER in Berkeley:
4:00 pm- In honor of the recent release of THE FUSE V2, Escapist Comics is having a signing which will include myself and “special guest”. Who will it be? That’s a secret I’ll take to my grave (or until Friday, whichever comes first).
7:00 pm- After the signing, there will be a reception/art show at TR!CKSTER (@trickstertrickster), where there will be a bunch of original art on display, most of which from the upcoming THE FUSE #13! So if you want a little sneak peek into the next storyline, it’s a perfect time to drop by and check it out. There will also be exclusive FUSE prints for sale at the event! Lots of fun for everybody.
I’m going to be in Artist Alley at the annual conference for the ALA in San Francisco this weekend! It’s my first time exhibiting at this show so looking forward to checking it out and talking shop with folks.
I’ll have lots of books for sale, including THE FUSE, STUMPTOWN, WASTELAND and more alongside Prints and a bunch of original art for sale so drop by and say hello!
