Join the Legendary COMIC CON@HOME panel for ROB!

The fine people at Legendary have put together a panel as part of the virtual SDCC this year: COMIC CON@HOME and as part of that we’ll be giving a sneak preview of ROB, my new “RenPunk” take on the Robin Hood mythos.

In the video, you can join me, Robert Napton (SVP of publishing at Legendary), artist Magda Price, colorist Eren Angiolini with Jann Jones of Legendary as our host and guide. Please go to YouTube to watch!

The Webtoon comic is coming in later in 2020 with a hard print, graphic novel to follow.

ROB – Coming Soon From Legendary Entertainment

The logo for my new comic book, ROB – a reimagining of the Robin Hood mythos – from Legendary Entertainment has been revealed, which means the comic itself won’t be far behind…

ROB takes the story we know so well and looks at it from a new angle. How did a young man – one prone to hotheadedness and isn’t that great at archery – become the legend we think we know? Set in the far, far future when the Earth’s resources have been depleted and feudalism has returned as the dominant form of society, ROB takes our hero and his gang of friends away from the familiar territory of Sherwood and out into a brand new, old world.

Be sure to check back for details of the panel the team behind ROB have recorded for SDCC Online this year. Legendary will be revealing artwork and the talented people who have made the comic look fantastic.

“Hollywoood Reporter” breaks the news that I am writing Lost in Space Comic

I am over the moon to announce that I am writing for Legendary Entertainment’s reboot of the 60s sci-fi classic , Lost in Space, which is currently available on Netflix. As detailed in today’s Hollywood Reporter, I have written a four-part prequel comic to the hugely successful TV show, to be drawn by incredible artist, Zid.

I will be talking about this new and exciting project alongside my work on my own series – Rob – on the Legendary Panel at SDCC this Friday, 20th July between 1800-1900 in Room 29AB.

The following day, I’ll be signing ashcans of the new comic – that’s Saturday, July 21st between 1400-1500 in the autograph area.

One of the most exciting aspects of the project is highlighting the differences and similarities between the cast of the 1960s show and the modern day Robsinson family (John, Will, the Robot and Maureen – above – and Judy and Penny – below).

It was such a privilege to write and a huge responsibility to try and get all the characterisations correct, but with the guiding light of Robert Napton at Legendary and along with executive producers Kevin Burns and Jon Jashni – awesome keepers of the Irwin Allen flame at Prometheus Entertainment –  I think we’ve done them all justice.

Writing a separate arc alongside me, I am very proud to say is comics legend Brian Buccellato, who has worked on many titles including Superman, Batman, the Flash, Hellblazer and The Black Bat.

The comic, with the title “Countdown to Danger”, will be released in four volumes starting in October 2018.

More details soon. 😀

My First Doctor Who Comic Colection – Coming in 2018

Titan Comics is collecting my three-issue story, The Wolves of Winter into a hardback and softback graphic novel in February 2018. The story features the 12th Doctor and Bill alongside a crew of Vikings and a party of desperate Ice Warriors and a few blasts from the past he wasn’t expecting!

WoW - 12 vol 6Here’s the blurb and a great quote:

“In Bill’s first comic adventure, the TARDIS crashes into the heart of a Viking camp! It seems that a terrifying alien force has taken hold over the icy kingdom. As the snow melts, the Doctor realises that he is about to face an unwelcome face from the past…”

Comparisons to the show aside, this is a fantastic comic. Every element – the story, the art, the colors – work together in perfect harmony. – Kabooooom

 

The release will also include my one-shot story, The Great Shopping Bill, which sees Bill find a missing girl in the largest supermarket n the galaxy – the Ubermarket! But not everything is as it seems…

You can pre-order this new collection on Amazon now.
