But Burma is quite literally unlike any man Allison’s ever known – because he’s a cat.

A UNIVERSE OF TERROR DRAWN TO ONE PANEL: ALIENS, PREDATOR, PROMETHEUS, & BEYOND

Nearly 30 years ago, Dark Horse rewrote the rules of licensed comics with the release of Aliens, continuing the story lines of Ridley Scott’s iconic film franchise. Predator and the iconic crossover Aliens Vs. Predator followed, with each series practically outselling the last. Now, the publisher partners with Scott again, to bring sci-fi epic Prometheus to comics. With just under two months away from the launch of the ambitious and highly anticipated crossover, Fire and Stone, Dark Horse editor-in-chief Scott Allie, writers Chris Roberson (Aliens), Joshua Williamson (Predator), Christopher Sebela (Aliens Vs. Predator), and the Prometheus team of Paul Tobin and Juan Ferrerya, reveal just what’s in store for this grand universe!

Bandette 7 LIVE NOW!

Today in my studio I am at work on the first few pages of Bandette #8. 

Meanwhile, on the Internet…

Bandette_7_cover

Bandette #7 is LIVE FOR SALE from Comixology YAYYYY!!!! (My arms are flapping in the air like Kermit the Frog’s)

The Urchins are warned of a deadly threat! Monsieur is trapped in the act of a daring burglary! Absinthe is enraged by a bold theft beneath his very nose! Bandette continues to pilfer the objects held most dear to Absinthe, all the while collecting evidence to be used against his corrupt organization, FINIS! Our beloved heroine scoffs at all laws in pursuit of her quest, but there is one law even she must obey… the law of gravity!

As always, this issue is 99¢ in US dollaz money, or a near equivalent if you buy it almost anywhere else in the world. (Hello, Singapore! How do, Lichtenstein?) It’s written by Paul Tobin, drawn by me, and all six previous issues (installments? episodes?) are also available, as always, at that same insanely cheap price.

Not to mention the actual in print hardcover meatspace book made of paper, published by Dark Horse, which collects issues 1-5 and is available wherever you buy comics for a mere $15 USD.

You have options, is what I’m saying.

I gotta get back to work.

 

Emerald City 2014!

Yup, gonna be there! I’ll be set up with the rest of the Periscope Studio crew at table 1214.
