Zipper: Cosmic Jungle in Oct Previews4541

So, in another thread, I just let the cat out of the bag... I mentioned that I'm the writer of the book. If you're curious about it, here's some info!

It's one of three projects I'm working on with Gene Simmons (a cool guy and total comic geek, actually), two of which are making their rounds in Previews now - last month Gene Simmons' Dominatrix: Hellbent in Heels #1 was solicited for a November release. There's a third series coming soon.

You can read the solicit info below, but Zipper is a crazy sci-fi adventure, introducing a bunch of new characters who didn't appear in previous volumes. I'm expanding upon his homeworld, Etheria, and bringing in creatures / elements from other universes for reasons you'll see as the story develops. Also, I'm getting into the heart of what makes Zipper tick - his quest for individuality and identity - but also the very impact of that quest on those who were left behind on Etheria when he went on his first jaunt to Earth way back in 2007 (IDW's Zipper). There's a nice recap of the original events, so you don't even need to read it to know what's going on, though it is an entertaining read, too... Nor do you need read my first foray into Gene's mind... errr.... creations... Zipper vs Dominatrix: The Slave Trade from a few years ago. Again, crazy fun, but this is a jumping on point.

Art is AMAZING!!! Alex Aguilar is a new find! He just made his US deput a few weeks ago in the Millarworld 2017 Annual if anyone picked it up. Check out some pages below... If he doesn't end up working for a major publisher after this project, I will be SHOCKED.

Ha ha, thanks. You're a peach. I know, it's not a lot to go on with the story. The artists I'm working with have been pretty darned inspired, but what does that tell you? I don't know!

Do it.... Doooooo it.....
