Two years ago I went to the New York Comic Con and met the editors behind 215 Ink, a comics publisher of a some of today's best raw talent.
I was introduced by Shawn Alridge, who was a fellow competitor back in 2008 for our month on DC Comics' Zuda. His sci-fi pulp Vic Boone came to #2, my story Shock Effect made it to #3, and some terribly-drawn, ass-backwards-ly told story came in first, getting a full run on Zuda (you can read more about this mess here at Comic Book Resources). Shawn went on to complete his book and publish it through 215 Ink-- and it looks dynamite.
And now 215 is putting out an anthology, It's joining 30+ other stories in IGNITION, a creator anthology in the spirit of things like Image's Popgun and Flight.
Ignition includes an original story by me, and drawn by Shari Chankhamma. It's a thriller set on an island, where a BBC wildlife documentary goes off the rails when one of the producers thinks she's seeing a reall monster. Or is she? It's called Bird of Paradise--and was originally published my collection A Nail in the Heart.
Watch out-- it's hot!
