Oklahoma City writer, artist create sci-fi epic ‘Nadir’s Zenith’
Two Oklahoma City comic-book creators will release the second issue of their sci-fi epic comic book next weekend.
Writer Jackson Compton and artist Jerry Bennett will debut “Nadir’s Zenith” No. 2 at OAFcon, taking place Nov. 10 and 11 at the Biltmore Hotel, 401 S Meridian.
“This is set 100 years in the future,” Compton said in a recent interview. “It’s a space cop story.”
Bennett talked about some of the inspirations for the comic.
“It’s a ‘Blade Runner’ meets ‘Firefly’ kind of sci-fi adventure of a space marshal,” Bennett said.
Compton originally developed “Nadir’s Zenith” as a novel. After he and Bennett met at SoonerCon in 2010, the pair decided to work on a project together. Bennett wasn’t as interested in the original horror property Compton pitched him, but when he heard the concept of “Zenith,” he perked up.
“I had been wanting to do a science fiction comic for a long time,” he said.
After exchanging several emails, the pair sat at a restaurant for an entire day, hashing out specifics of the planned plot, design and storyline.
