Image Comics to Publish Planet Paradise by Jesse Lonergan
Jesse Lonergan, an independent comic creator born in California, raised in Saudi Arabia and Vermont, and spent two years in Turkmenistan with the Peace Corps. Hes has had a number of comics and graphic novels published over the years, including by NBM ComicsLit such as All Star and Flower & Fade, and has contributed to a number of anthologies. Now his new comic book Hedra listed in Image Comics' August 2020 solicitations. But it also appears they will be publishing his new graphic novel, Planet Paradise. Which is described as;
To survive after crash landing on an alien planet, a vacationer must battle against a hostile environment, killer lizards, corporate bureaucracy, and the pessimism of her sole companion, the drug-addled captain of the ship.
On his website, Jesse states that Planet Paradise is 124-page full-colour graphic novel currently being released episodically on Patreon, and coming out in print in late 2020 or early 2021. That Patreon would be over here, I guess. And we get a few preview images too…
And here is the description of his similalry-themed Hedra one-shot for August 2020 from Image Comics as well.
(W/A/CA) Jesse Lonergan
In a glorious exploration of the comics medium with echoes of 2001: A Space Odyssey, Flash Gordon, Chris Ware, and Moebius, a lone astronaut leaves a world ravaged by nuclear war in search of life. What she finds is beyond all explanation.
"This beautiful, intricate marvel is one of the fullest expressions of what can be done with comics that I've seen in years." -Warren Ellis
