…which I’ve been working-on secretly for 3 years. It’s epic and it’s dark and it’s deconstructive and it’s gorgeous and it’s mythic and it’s sleazy and it’s brutal and it’s at one and the same time the most high-concept and the most prosaically human thing I’ve ever written, and above all it… just… keeps… getting… bigger.
What you’re looking at there is a single panel, 1/6th of a normal page.
Let me repeat that from the other direction, just for clarity. There are five other panels on that same page of the same size and detail.
We have something like 280 pages of this project in the bag already.
I can’t tell you much more just yet. I can’t even tell you the name of the amazing artist of the above panel. But what I can tell you is that finally, at long…fucking…last… this project is going to be announced this year.
The words “Six-Gun Gorilla” have squatted in my psyche – as immovable as only a revolver-packin’ primate can be – since I first heard them. How could I pass up the chance to breathe new life into such an insane, evocative title (so sinfully neglected since its inception as a 1939 pulp serial)? In deference to its unknown writer, our new version has mutated into a comic unlike any other: a relentless blast of deconstructive weirdness, gunsmoke, surreal frontiers and Awesome Ape Action. Six-Gun Gorilla is a head-poppin’, civil-warrin’, wilderness-crossin’ epic with sly sci-fi notes: a love-letter to the Western genre, signed with a flourish by a black-furred and blood-drenched fist. —
…is what I dun said in the midst of the official PRESS RELEASE announcing SIX-GUN GORILLA.
It’s often said, but every time someone places an order for a book at their local comic store - especially if said store has been remiss in ordering some copies for display - it’s a blip on a giant seething multicolored radar marked DEMAND. Please: spread the word and ask your personal Comic Book Guy to gorilla-up his shelves.
—comics’ new master of stylised ultraviolence. I love me a bit of hand-drawn SFX, I do.
Six-Gun Gorilla sneak-peek there, folks. Something big, mean and furry this way comes…
Favorite thing I’ve inked so far today. #comics #makecomics
