Having recently read (and reviewed) a preview copy of The Kill Screen from Mike Garley (Writer) Josh Sherwell (Artist) & Mike Stock (Letter) it’s always good to get the chance to catch up with them in person as I will do at LFCC this coming weekend.
I also had some updates from them on a new alternate cover and progress on the next issue – here’s what they had to say:
“We’re delighted to have an alternative cover for issue one illustrated by the incredible Ian Churchill (Revenge, Marineman, Supergirl), which will premier at LFCC this weekend. Ian’s an amazing artist who has managed to perfectly incorporate many of the elements of our first issue as well as creating a dynamic and eye catching image.
Josh (Sherwell) is doing a great job powering through the artwork and is nearly halfway through our second issue, which we’re hoping to have ready before the end of the year.
The Kill Screen is such a large concept that we decided quite early on that it would be cool to have a little story before the main story to help introduce the world of The Kill Screen. We used the intro in issue 1 (ILOVEYOU) to help further that particular story, as we wanted to really concentrate on telling what we hoped would be a solid first issue.
With issue 2 we just wanted to have a bit of fun with the world and show a bit more of the event that shaped it, so we decided to have a not-too-subtle nod to the Amazon acquisition of Comixology, although unfortunately the conversation could easily apply to pretty much any conglomerate.
Because these pages act as a self-contained story, we can share them now without giving anything away.
In the rest of the issue we pick up from where we left off, as we see how Chris deals with the events in issue one, as well as how he deals with a brand new enemy.
Lot’s of people assumed that we’d stick fairly close to the zombie-like bad guys of issue one, and whereas I’d love to see the red and blue team appear again, TKS allows a great and varied stable of antagonists and we intend to utilise that fact as much as possible.
