From teens fighting parents, to robots fighting monsters...
In case you missed it, my very first Graphic Novel, ELK'S RUN (with artist Noel Tuazon and colorist Scott Keating) is getting a deluxe, tenth anniversary re-release from my pals at Oni Press. It's going to be big, beautiful, and have some new exclusive content. It's out later this year.
And, then, I'll be the writer of the upcoming PACIFIC RIM: TALES FROM THE DRIFT mini-series from my pals at Legendary Comics. That one's got art by the brilliant Marcos Marz and Marcelo Maiolo.
It's weird to have these two books announced on the same day. Plus, I've got THE BUNKER and THE LIFE AFTER issues out today, too.
In some ways, these books represent the journey my career has been on. Republishing Elk's Run has given me a chance to look back at what excited me about comics in the first place, and, frankly, it's the character. The room we have to build characters above all else is what drew me in, and kept me here so long. My Pacific Rim mini, while being a huge, blockbuster thriller, is still really about a love story between two pilots. It's something that there isn't as much room as you'd need to do well in the movies, but that you can do really, really well in comics.
Getting to watch two people fall in love, just as Elk's Run is about watching a family fall out of love. Nice symmetry. Eyes peeled for Emerald City Comic Con this weekend, where more news should creep out.
