New webcomic: The Monster Men for ERB Inc.
Here’s another news, probably a big one.
I was invited by Erik Roman, the penciler whom I inked long time ago some The Red Devil comic Strips, to participate in this other comics trip based on Edgar Rice Burrough’s 1929 science fiction novel The Monster Men , published originally by A.C. McClurg.
Edgar Rice Burrough’s official site assembled a new team for an upcoming webcomic, which will be part of the graphic universe of ERB’s characters that will be displayed as a comic strips, For this comic strip the creative team is:
Writer: Tom Simmons,
Penciler: Erik Roman,
Inker: Cristian Docolomansky,
Colorist & Letterer: L Jamal Walton.
And here’s the incredible part (besides the fact of bringing to life this extraordinary novel), look at the roaster of artist that ERB gatherered together!:
John Carter, written by Roy Thomas
Korak The Killer written by Ron Marz and penciled by Rick Leonardi!
The Mucker by Ron Marz and Lee Moder
Tarzan of The Apes by Roy Thomas and Pablo Marcos
… and many more!
I can’t believe that I¡ll be sharing my inks along these great masters!
This will be available by a Pay Pal $1.99 monthly or $21.99 yearly subscription, which you can visit here. ERB will provide 10 different comic strips updated weekly.
For this great event I was asked to ink the original J. Allen St. John frontispiece for the 1929 McClurg hardbound 1st edition of THE MONSTER MEN ™ and colored/lettered by L Jamal Walton , with tagline by Tom Simmons. I am extremely honored for this.
Soon will be able to give you the exact launch date.
Last but not least: We had a small appearance on the last SDCC, with the panel below. (look for the bottom right drawing).
Can’t wait for you to read and comment this!
