|My proposed cover for Big Star Otto, the last in the Elephants Never Forget series.|
I have learnt a lot about graphic story telling in comic book form over the last few years, and have gained a renewed respect for those artists who labour under-appreciated and often in obscurity, pouring their hearts and talent out in page after page of comic book art. Only those who have gone through the process can appreciate how much work goes into producing even a slim volume. But doing this has left me hungry to embark on another graphic novel project - not right away (I have a couple of years' work waiting in the wings, things I pushed aside in order to bring this series to a conclusion). What that new project will be I don't know, but I think it will be something quite different from Otto. I have a few ideas rattling around in the back of my head.
I'm not sure what the publishing date is yet for this book, but I expect it will be sometime this fall. Once I have more information I will post it here and keep you up to date, through this and my Elephants Never Forget Facebook page regarding breaking news on the Otto front. In the meantime, I will leave you with one final page from the next book - not to give anything away…
Congratulations, Bill! What a grand adventure it has been and will continue to be I'm sure in a future project. And now, on to Tesla! :)ReplyDelete
