The Secret is Out: N-Man and Friends are BACK!

I’ll be at MoCCA this weekend, tabling with my fellow CCSers (Laura Terry, Matt Aucoin, Garry-Paul Bonesteel, Holly Foltz and Katherine Roy), doing my best to spread the word about three-act structure in graphic novels, and plugging the top secret project I’ve been working on for the past few months with Stephen R. Bissette


N-Man, The Fury and The Hypernaut are BACK! Originally created in 1993 for the comic book series 1963 (Alan Moore, Stephen R. Bissette, Rich Veitch, Jim Valentino, Dave Gibbons, John Totleben, Chester Brown and others), these characters have been inactive for over a decade until Steve Bissette decided to bring them back to life at CCS!

Steve approached me back in the fall about co-editing the rebirth of the characters through a fictional history of comics, to which I believe my answer was: “uh…YEAH!

Since then, Steve and I have had the great pleasure of working with Michael Dubisch, Fred Hembeck, G. Michael Dobbs, Jean-Marc Lofficier, Jay Piscopo, Peter Von Sholly, Les Daniels, Robyn Chapman, James Sturm & CCSers Mark Bilokur, Bill Volk, Keny Widjaja, Katherine Roy, Holly Foltz, Garry-Paul Bonesteel, Liza Petruzzo, Sean Morgan, Jason Week,  Matt Aucoin, Modi Kwanza, Casey Bohn, Colleen Frakes, Penina Gal, Josh Rosen, Randall Drew and (believe it or not) others!

We had originally intended on debuting at MoCCA but once we realized that 200+ pages of comics, fictional history articles, cover art, pin-up art, fan art, character biographies, television show scripts, etcetera were being produced for this project, we knew it was too big to tackle in such a short amount of time.

Instead, we produced a 16-page sample of some of the AMAZING work that was done for this project and plan to debut the finished product in the fall of this year. I will be selling the Tales of the Uncanny: N-Man & Friends Preview Comic at my table (G5) as will a number of CCS contributors. Hope to see you there!

    This sounds like a great project, when do you expect to have the 200 page book complete and where would one might be able to pick up a copy.

      Hey Todd!
      The plan is to have the book done before September, with a premiere at SPX comic convention. If that changes in the meantime, I’ll update about it.
      At that point, Steve and I will have figured out our distribution with our publisher. Sorry to not have a clearer answer for you, but once I do I’ll let everyone know.
