So, I'm, uh, getting published by Image Comics
« on: 04 December, 2016, 02:03:16 am »
Hello everyone, I've been a member on these boards for a number of years now, some of you probably know me, others don't.

Sometimes I post on here a lot, other times, not so much.

So, anyway, I thought I'd share that on the 28th of December I'm getting published by Image Comics.

Nothing massive, just an eight page strip in an anthology.

I was a Writing Runner-Up in the 2015 Top Cow Talent Hunt, which means that I was given the chance to write a six to eight page strip for an Image Comics one shot featuring Top Cow characters.

I picked Aphrodite IV.

The book is CyberForce: Artifacts #0.



It's been very exciting, I got to work with a fantastic artist, the amazing Jim Towe, who has since been picked up as the artist for the new Youngblood series.

I hope a few of you decide to pick up the book and with any luck, I can use this as a launch pad to find future work as a comic book writer.



Paul Penna.

I'd say that's pretty massive, regardless of what its appearing in not many at all get the chance to see their name in print by a major publisher. Good luck and lets hope it leads to some more.

Looking forward to the book.

I'm still very proud to have had 'Projections' appear as the lead strip in FutureQuake #20 and I'm really looking forward to seeing my strip 'Ghosts of Mega-City One' appear in Zarjaz sometime next year.
