    22 pages to go

    Our artist on Witchfinder: The Mysteries of Unland, Tyler Crook, recently posted this image of the first 88 pages of Witchfinder artwork, with the caption, ’22 pages left to go!’ It’s weird to see the combined work of 18 months condensed into a thick sheaf of pages. Kim and I finished writing the scripts over six months ago, but the project has been on-going because we’re involved in the proofing of covers, layouts, pencils, inks, and lettering. The job of the writer on comic books doesn’t end when the script is handed in. Witchfinder is coming out on a monthly schedule, so the final comic book in this five-issue mini-series…

    Preview of Unland 1

    The first three pages of issue 1 of Witchfinder: The Mysteries of Unland have been posted online, and on the Tumblr of our artist Tyler Crook (follow him!). What’s cool is that along with the finished coloured/lettered pages, you can also see the original black and white inks beside for comparison. I’m replicating them below. Not only do you see how well Tyler is drawing the comic, this also clearly demonstrates what a brilliant job colourist Dave Stewart is doing, and how much his work adds to the general atmosphere of the piece. Plus, let’s not forget the contribution of our letterer Clem Robins! (Click to embiggen.) The comic is…

    The Mysteries of Unland

    I’m very pleased to announce that I’m co-writing a comic book mini-series with Kim Newman which is part of the Hellboy universe created by Mike Mignola, and published by Dark Horse Comics. It will be a five-issue Sir Edward Grey: Witchfinder story called The Mysteries of Unland, with art by Tyler Crook, coloured by Dave Stewart, covers by Julian Totino Tedesco, lettered by Clem Robins, and edited by Scott Allie. The story revolves around Sir Edward Grey’s reluctant investigation of a mysterious death in the town of Hallam, which turns out to be far stranger than he expected… This March marks 20 years of the Hellboy franchise (often referred to…
