MEMPHIS, Tenn. — WildStorm announced the development of an aggressive creator-driven line at the 2009 ComicsPRO Annual Meeting.
Several new comic-book series will be joining the WildStorm line, announced Hank Kanalz of WildStorm. The titles include:
- “North 40,” by Aaron Williams (“PS238″) and Fiona Staples (“Secret History of the Authority”).
This is a miniseries about a Midwestern American town that holds a secret in its library — a book that brings dreams and nightmares to life. It launches in June.
- “Red Herring,” by Dave Tischman and Philip Bond.
This six-issue miniseries launching in June was described by Kanalz as “The Daily Show meets the X-Files.” It’s designed to be a series of miniseries, Kanalz said.
- “Sparta,” written by David Lapham
A sleepy American town built around its football team has a magical undertone.
- “Garrison,” written by Jeff Mariotte
“Garrison” is an FBI procedural miniseries in which agents are tracking down a serial killer.
Kanalz said WildStorm is committed to shipping these series on time.
“We’re sticking to our promise that when we solicit, that means we’re ready to go,” Kanalz said.
