Second 'Wonderboy Serials' volume released in Oklahoma City
Convention-goers are “hungry for content,” Martin said. “We sell out of books on a regular basis. They're willing to take chances on you.”
Martin said convention-goers like the personal connection forged between artist and patron.
“The art that you consume is just as much a part of you as anything else,” he said.
While the “Wonderboy Serials” have wrapped, there is a chance more books set in the “Wonderboy” world could eventually come to fruition, Martin said.
“I left it open-ended,” Martin said.
Martin has written a screenplay based on his book “The Deviants,” which is currently in development; Martin has written another screenplay, titled “Trigger,” that is also in development with a group of filmmakers with Oklahoma ties.
Also at the signing, an omnibus edition of Eric Gorman's “scrambled eggs” comic book will be available. Gorman, also the bassist for “The Gentle Art of Floating,” will be on hand to sign copies of the book. Gorman has been praised by indie comics luminaries including Noah Van Sciver (“Blammo”) and Farel Dalrymple (“Pop Gun War”).
