So forgive me for gushing but, I’m really really excited about my upcoming graphic novel, Stabb Gunner. I love great sequential art, and if not for the comics I read in my formative years, I very likely would be living under a bridge right now. As I mentioned in a previous blog, Stabb Gunner has been kicking around in my head for years now. So when I was talking to penciler, Courtland Ellis, I had an idea and even sketches of what Stabb Fisticuffs might look like.

The following images are an example of how a character’s evolves drastically over time. Moving from my head, to paper, through Courtland, over to Steve Becker (on inks), and back to Courtland again for color.

The Fictory is humming along finishing up the “teaser” for  ATOMIC ROBO: Last Stop. While the team finishes up all the odds and ends for that I’ve been going full tilt boogie on the remaining storyboards. In the sequence below we see Robo get squared up and popping a shot off at Helsie’s rocket pods. Before he let’s one fly, Robo does the only fitting thing;

“The Danny Glover neck roll”.

If you were born in the Nineties you may say “is the Danny Glover neck roll some type of funky sushi?”  If you were alive in the Eighties or if you have even a passing love of the buddy cop genre, you’ve seen Danny Glover do the the old neck crack before he shoots a dude in the face. Seriously, he does it in all 4 films and you knew somebody was getting there wig peeled back when it happened. I can hear that Saxophone right now.

Stay tuned true believers because this teaser may be dropping on a certain patriotic holiday where a certain country told King George to cram it with walnuts.

Introducing Stabb Fisticuffs. One of two man characters from a graphic novel debuting this summer at The art shown is for Stabb Gunner, written by yours truly, Joseph W. Krzemienski, with pencils by Courtland Ellis and Inks by Steve Becker. This project is a dream come true for me. I’ve had this idea on the shelves for about 2 years now. With the production on animated projects siphoning all of my time, I couldn’t work on my other projects without some serious help. My most frequent collaborators, Jeff and Dom are up to their armpits in their own books (also premiering this summer), so asking them was out of the question. Well help has arrived! I find my self extremely fortunate to be working with the Lads and Lasses who make up the Fictory crew, and if those people spill over into other projects… well all the better.

We will also be featuring books by Jeff McComsey (American Terror: Eminent Domain), Dominic Vivona (Follies), Jeff Rummel (Space Bastard), and other guest contributors. I hope you’re ready to waste tons of time reading awesome content. Because with the line up we’ve got going on… it’s gonna happen.
