I have a number of exciting writing related announcements to make– some of which I could have made a few months ago but decided not to until the projects were more likely to be a sure thing. The first bit of news is that my friend and long-time collaborative partner Manoel Magalhaes started drawing a new comic for The Grim Collection. Manoel was responsible for art on The Orphan for The Grim Collection and for The Three Princes in the crime comics anthology Acts of Violence. You might also recall we collaborated on two sci-fi comics, Colonel and Synchronicity.
This new short comic for The Grim Collection is more in the crime genre than horror, but The Grim Collection was never intended to be just straight-up horror stories. I had always wanted thrillers and crime to be explored, too. Basically, anything that might make folks uneasy when reading the material. The new comic is called Glen. It is about a troubled business professional whose day spirals out of control.
Manoel started drawing Glen in 2016 but we ended up putting it on hold when Manoel asked me to work with him on something that was very exciting for me as a writer. I’ll be back tomorrow to post about that…
But, for now, take a look at the image below– that is Manoel’s pencils for page 4 of Glen. (click the image to see it in larger form)
