Cowboys and Insects first appeared as a digital comic on Aces Weekly back in June of 2013. It is still available there and on Comixology as part of the Aces Weekly anthology. Now for you print addicts, it is also on its way as a collector's edition one-shot from Floating World Comics, publishers of such fine works as Bartkira.
If you like The Bulletproof Coffin you're going to love Cowboys and Insects - a tale of paranoia, love and betrayal in a world where rugged riders risk their lives to put tasty giant bugs on the dinner tables of America.
To avoid missing out on this retro classic comic, please ask your comic store to order a copy for you. Tell them Kane and Hine sent you...
Today is the 100th anniversary of the first day of the Battle of the Somme, one of the bloodiest and most pointless battles of human history.
Back in 2008, when I was writing SPAWN for Todd McFarlane and Image comics, I was using one-off stories to explore the ancestry of Al Simmons and his family. One of those stories was set in the First World War at the Battle Of the Somme. Artist, Mike Mayhew, pulled out all the stops on this one, hiring actors to pose in costume for the sake of authenticity. Though some of the events are obviously fictional as you can see from the cover, the descriptions of the battle are accurate.
Spawn #179 was edited by Brian Haberlin, Art by Mike Mayhew with colours by Andy Troy and letters by Tom Orzechowski.
My new creator-owned comic, Second Sight, is on sale Wednesday February 10th at all good comic shops. If you are in London, you can drop in to Orbital Comics (8, Great Newport Street, WC2H) from 6-7pm and get a signed copy from me.
This comic is very special for me. It's a concept I've worked on for a couple of decades now in various forms, and I'm very happy to finally see it in print from the amazing new independent publisher, Aftershock. Thanks to editor, Mike Marts for having faith, and Alberto Ponticelli on pencils, John Kalisz on colours and Jimmy Betancourt on letters, for making the book look amazing.
And here is an exclusive preview of the pencils by Alberto Ponticelli for the cover of issue #5...
FASTER THAN LIGHT is an ongoing series from Image Comics created by Brian Haberlin and Skip Brittenham and featuring digital from Brian with colours by Gierrod VanDyke.
I've worked with Brian and Gierrod before during my run on Spawn, so I was very pleased to be invited to work on a new digital comic: FASTER THAN LIGHT - THE MISSION LOGS. This series of one-shots will be filling the gap while the monthly printed version rests between story arcs. It will be available online and will be completely free!
You can click on the link below to go directly to the Faster Than Light web page and see some preview art showing how I'm working with Brian, writing script and supplying layouts, a method we occasionally used on Spawn. You can also register there to join the Mission Logs Network, so you will know when there is a new free story available. Don't miss this one. It's a must for any fan of science-fiction.
