Boom Announces The Spire At ComicsPRO, From Six-Gun Gorilla Team Si Spurrier And Jeff Stokely


One of Boom's bigger sleeper hits from two years ago was Six-Gun Gorilla, which surprised everyone by taking a pulp era, public domain character and reinventing it into a 2000 AD inspired rumination on the nature of creativity and authorship.


Today, during Boom's forward-ushing presentation to the retailers at ComicsPRO, they announced a new series from the same team of Simon Spurrier and Jeff Stokely called The Spire. Which, respectfully, we informed you of earlier today.

Reports indicate that the level of genre-bending and boundary pushing in this series will make Six-Gun Gorilla seem almost conventional by comparison. It looks like a love letter to Heavy Metal, manga, and 2000 AD and in the hands of Spurrier and Stokely I can definitely see it. We'll see as more information is revealed, but I'm definitely intrigued.


And no damn dirty apes..
