Some times, a fresh coat of paint can breathe new life.
Last year I declared "8-Bit Guy No More!" And we're already had at work, not only producing NEW comic characters and stories, but also refinishing some of our existing titles to accommodate a "New to You" campaign that will be launching in February!
|The original cover design||!|
My first addendum was to create a second series of shorts, each one also an homage to an existing character from mainstream comics. Once that new run was completed, we would host a fan vote, allowing for only the TWO most popular of the six stories to continue. The second wave is all laid out and just about ready for art duties, but as the work on them continued, more and more places where the Origins Unknown characters could interact with other V:IP titles kept appearing. Before long, the threads that other titles were running with could EASILY be linked back to those six stories and that's when I realized, the answer had been staring me in the face the entire time.
Origins Unknown has secretly been a foundation of my entire, UNIFIED universe.
But to give it the attention it deserves, a facelift was SORELY needed, not just visually, but conceptually as well! Origins Unknown will serve as the Secret Origins (DC Comics) series to the V:IP Universe. But to keep up the integrity of our OTHER cache of titles, we only want it to answer the questions that WE want you asking -- namely, who, what, where, when and why.
So it is with GREAT pleasure, that I (re)Introduce Origins Unknown Vol 1: Who.
|New and improved! Still featuring Somewhere I Belong, Point of Authority and Breaking the Habit!|
Unfortunately, for the foreseeable future, my volume one cohort, Jacob Newell won't be returning to the project -- BUT, he's got some creator-owned projects he's been HARD at work on, so stay on the look out for them! And keep tuning in here, as we continue with our "From Bits to Books" campaign for 2015!!!
