Working away from home on some creature designs. So far, I can't help but think these are circling a strange human/mosquito cross breeding. Stay tooned to this station for more behind the scenes insights in the coming weeks.
The BUNKER 16 is in stores TODAY and things are coming to a head…literally. Go grab yourself a copy (if you haven't read 15, nab it if you can) and strap yourself in for the most explosive issue in the series so far. Here's a short preview to whet your appetite.
Imagine, if you will, an entire organism made of these little terrors. When necessary, all their fine filaments for legs disentangle and release each unit to scurry and hide this way and that. Inside they have a dymaxion-like bone structure that neatly interlocks with its neighbors. Now imagine during your day that the person next to you on your commute or in your adjacent cubicle is made of these. Happy Monday!
If you want to guarantee a copy of The BUNKER 16 when it arrives in stores, you need to pre-rder your copy today. Simply give your Local Comics Shop the special code, JAN161584 and your future self will thank you. Heck, I don't think I'm overstepping if I say everyone who works on this book thanks you, too! Pre-ordering makes everyone's future self just that much happier.
The BUNKER's fourth arc kicks off as issue 15 hits shelves tomorrow and you're not going to want to miss out. When this arc comes to its jaw dropping finale, you'll regret that you weren't on board from the beginning. Do your future self a favor and pick this up at your LCS! You don't have to take MY word for it, however, here's the official scoop (with more words by me):
Today's the Final Order Cut off for the upcoming ONI Press Starter Pack 2016. I promise you'll not want to overlook this. It's over 200 pages collecting issue #1's from SEVEN of ONI Press' ongoing books for a ridiculous $5.99! In it you'll be introduced to Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt's The Sixth Gun, Charles Soule and Alberto Alburquerque's Letter 44, Zander Cannon's Kaijumax, Greg Rucka and Justin Greenwood's Stumptown, Cullen Bunn and Joelle Jones' Helheim, Joshua Hale Fialkov and Gabo's The Life After and of course, the full double sized issue #1 of The BUNKER by Joshua Hale Fialkov and myself.
Now take the diamond order code, NOV151539, to your local comics shop and tell them to pre-order your copy so you'll be sure to get it on release date. Thanks for reading and please consider sharing this post using your preferred social network.
Abstraction is a bit of a misnomer here because when I was drawing this, I'm pretty sure I was thinking I was describing something real. If you've been at all following recent Moleskine Monday posts, you may have noticed a heavy influence of extreme bodily distortion. Organs, architecture, under sea creatures etc. are all transmogrifying into this tangle of tubes, glands and almost geodesic like structures. I can't wait to see what grows out of all of this.
