From Zenescope a new mini series featuring their main character, Sela!
It will be a 5 issues series, written by J.C. Brusha and drawn obviously by me.

Hercules, Robin Hood and Pecos Bill all come magically to life. But heroes aren't the only characters in stories. Villains too are affected by the magic spell and soon the children find themselves in a race against time to reverse the spell as evil characters from all of literature threaten to take over the world. Their only chance lies with the heroes they've brought to life. But even that may not be enough to stop the Frankenstein, Baba Yaga and the Wicked Witch of the West!

"The Airfighters: Insurrection" preview

Some days ago i have announced my latest Moonstone book: Airboy presents The Airfighters: Insurrection, now it's time to talk about it.

It will be a 40 pages, grey scales, one shot (October 2011, 3.99$) and for the first time all the Airfighters and Airboy will fight together in the same story.
A story played in France, obviously during the second world war, based on real facts about concentration camp prisoners, Vichy soldiers, etc.
I don't want to add more to not ruin the reading of the book.

It's written by Jeff Limke, which is one of the usual Airfighters writer (his character was The Bald Eagle).
After a hard start, due to the difficulty to conciliate real fact, places, geography, etc. with our group of heroes i have found a good rhythm, and at last, i can proudly say that it's came out a good action book.
I thought to slightly modify my style to capture better the WWII action books spirit, being less modern, i really hope to have reach my objective.

I would like to share with you a little preview of it, some pages that i wish increase in you the will to buy it, i'm sure you'll not deserve!

G.I.Joe Infestation issue #1 is out

The first issue of the G.I.Joe: Infestation miniseries is out.

After reading the first reviews and some thoughts on the IDW forum it seems that people have really appreciated it.
I can understand the doubts of the Joes fans about seeing involving their heroes on a zombie crossover, but i was pretty sure that the way Mike Raicht found to tell a horror story in the universe of our soldiers would have worked, and i'm happy to hear that for a lot of people this is even the best Joes book of the last times.

This is page 1 B/W from a 5 pages preview of the book that you can find here.



This is another preview from Chris Ryall (IDW Editor-inchief) blog

This is a collection of very good reviews of the book:


Comicattack.net

Comicbooked.com

HISS Tank

Kittyspryde.com


And for last a interview of Mike Raicht , the writer, about the two G.I.Joe: Infestation books done with the CBR guys.
