CAPTAIN SWING On G4’s Attack Of The Show

July 10th, 2009 | Work

An exclusive first look at a forthcoming short series via Avatar Press.

(It’s not actually steampunk. And there’s not really a serial killer.)

  1. Also, she said you were “respected”
    That can’t be right.

  2. Looks good Warren! To bad we had to be exposed to G4 to see the preview.

  3. I’m curious to see colors on the artwork by Carceres, wonder what it will give.

  4. He is respected by bartenders and offie owners the world over.

  5. Dude, spoilers!

  6. Looking forward to it; the story and your emersion into steam punk. Hope the final art has color; the art in Ignition City is terrific and makes that book a must buy for me.

  7. Pokes silly blond girl in eye-
    avatar press is teaming up with you? arh? clearly you have never done that before….

  8. G4 getting something wrong about gaming, comics, anything geeky in a pop culture related posting??? G4 reporting on this new steampunk/serial killer comic, but it not actually being both of those obviously says, like usual, that they would rather look at the pictures than read the damn thing, or do any kind of research before opening their mouths. G4 needs to learn to shut the hell up, and just play more reruns of cheaters and cops, and stop trying to be a gaming geek mecca for the socially challenged.

  9. The un-colored artwork is lovely.

  10. Great art from Carceres .. even in B/W. Reminds me of Bryan Talbot’s work. When is this out again?

  11. Ok. FIIIINNNNEE, Ellis. It’s Tesla-punk. Happy now?

  12. Sure, Springheel Jack has inexplicably become a serial killer, but at least she didn’t refer to him as “an Ellis homage to a character created by Charlie Stross.” Though that sort of mistake would probably be above her pay grade.

  13. Um… Spring-Heeled Jack kind of predates Charlie…

  14. @Bryan: Agreed! Personally I find the black and white artwork strong enough to stand on it’s own (at least from what little I have seen). We don’t need no steeenking colours here…

  15. Mds – That a very stupid thing to say, I’m sure you didn’t mean it like that

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spring_Heeled_Jack

    I know it’s wikipedia but it gives you the general gist.

  16. @Barry Hall – He already implied it would be a stupid thing to say. MSD was saying that the bit in quotation marks would be something that G4 could likely say, as they are already referring to him as a “serial killer”.

  17. Anyway, having watched the preview, this looks a really interesting mini-series. Looking forward to it.
