That’s country and blues singer Kasey Lansdale over there on the right, showing off her latest comic purchases. Which is a nice segue-way into my upcoming comic projects. The Last Zombie trade paperback and To Fight With Monsters are out now, and all 5 issues of The Last Zombie: Inferno are up for pre-order. Issue #3 of Inferno – Planters’ origin story – might be the saddest thing I’ve ever written.
Inferno will be followed by a series of one-shot single issues, before we jump into the next 5-issue story-arc, which finds Ian and the others embroiled in post-apocalyptic Chicago politics. If that sounds like we’re planning ahead, yes, we are. Sales for The Last Zombie have been very strong, and as long as they remain that way, I see nothing preventing us from reaching fifty issues (which was my original plan).
On the non-Antarctic Press front, I’ve got some stuff in the pipeline with a few other publishers, but it is way too early to talk about most of it. Doom Patrol: Fire Away comes out this summer. Marvel just took Dead of Night: Devil Slayer out of print, but TFAW still has copies. Grave Conditions is still in print. And Camelot still has some copies of The Rising: Death In Four Colors. And look for Clickers comics in late 2011!
