ECCC: Strange Attractors, Debris And Grim Leaper

Jeffrey Whitelaw is attending ECCC for Bleeding Cool. He writes;

Yesterday at ECCC I talked to a few Image creators about what they're working on next.

First up was Charles Soule, writer of two fantastic books, 27, and Strongman, I apologize because I had a recorder malfunction, but I did find out a few things.

The first thing he talked about was Strange Attractions, out in fall from Achaia. Soule told me: "it is about a dude who sort of figures out how to turn New York City into an engine, and has been using it to do amazing things".

I also asked him about 27, and he confirmed that there will be a third set, and that will be the end of it. There is nothing to confirm yet, however.

Soule was also the first person I talked to this weekend to say that he "loved Bleeding Cool", so give him some credit for that. I predict that Strange Attractions will be incredible.

Next up was Kurt Weibe and Riley Rossmo, the creative team on Green Wake, a book that recently ended.

ECCC: Strange Attractors, Debris And Grim LeaperWeibe talked about Grim Leaper, a four issue series with Alusio Santos. He called it "a black romantic comedy, sort of Romeo and Juliet meets Final Destination." In addition to the 22 page story each issue wil also feature a 5 page backup called Love Stories to Die For, which is "just a bunch of really messed up love stories." That book will be out May 30th.

Weibe also talked about Peter Panzerfaust which is now an ongoing, probably about 25-30 issues. On the promotion side of things he said "there are some things in the works which hopefully bring some more eyes to it."

I then turned to Rossmo to talk about Rebel Blood, a recently published Image book he draws. He told me that the book is " a survival horror book which is about Chuck Rebel, who is trying to get home before the mutated flora and fauna get to his family." Continuing he says: "it's about the possibilities, in any sort of what if situation when loved ones are at risk, trying to draft visually all the worst case scenarios and possible outcomes."

 

He also talked about a new science fiction book he is doing with Weibe called Debris about a "young independent heroine fighting monsters". It will be out in June

I also talked to him about Proof, a book he does with Alex Grecian. He said they are talking about doing the book again, stressing that they are "just talking about.
