NEXT GEN WARZ #1

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 16, 2010, 3:55 PM
Here's a sneak peek at a comic project I've been working on.

The Regular cover followed by the two flip covers.(+promo piece)
NEXT GEN WARZ 1 Regular cover by RyanKinnaird NEXT GEN WARZ 1 Esexy3 cover by RyanKinnaird NEXT GEN WARZ 1 FoxBox630 cvr by RyanKinnaird Next Gen Warz promo piece by RyanKinnaird

Some preview pages.

People who liked my stuff on PSM will want to check it out when it hits comic shops in September. It's a two issue video game comedy/parody mini series (of giga proportions! ;P). It pokes fun at the world of video games, the people that play them and those that make them.

It's about a hardcore gamer, who's next gen console goes in for repair, so he buys a different next gen console. When his original console returns the war is on, and the sparks fly as the two battle to show who is more "giga" (IE: more desirable). The big spin is that the "consoles" are female embodied characters with personalities and lots of attitude ;).

You'll see the two consoles summon developers and video game characters to aid in their quest for superiority. Being that this is a parody, there are no actual real people or franchise characters in the book, but like the consoles, you'll see some female embodied characters that may seem familiar :)

It'll be solicited in next months PREVIEWS catalog (the July issue for stuff shipping in September that is).

Each copy of Issue #1 has two covers, the regular cover and one of two different flip covers (seen above). So you can get a cover that features your favored "console" if you like.

To learn more about this project, I did an interview with NEWSARAMA that you can read here--> www.newsarama.com/comics/image…

It's also on the IMAGE comics page to check out--> www.imagecomics.com/index.php#…

THE ULTIMATE BATTLE FOR DISPOSABLE INCOME BEGINS, AND IT"S GONNA BE GIGA!! ;)

See you in september ;)

oh dude your comic was a fun ride, love all the game references and the last page was awesome, shame its a two parter but i guess short and sweet. I've tried to get a hold of the phoenix book but its not available anywhere i've looked sad that marvel didn't bring it out in trades form they bring out most of there stuff and some not so good stuff lol

Will you be taking this book to Comic-Con? It'd be cool to see early prints of it, and provide the high-fives.

Done deal, sir. Sucks, though. You've done a few commissions for me. Would have been nice to shake your hand and thank you in person.

Whee I hope they sell it here in Singapore!

Hmm, I don't know if Image sends stuff across seas. Specialty stores might import it for you. I'm really not sure. You could try a local specialty book store to see if they would carry it. Can you find Marvel, DC, or Images books around there ever?

Something tells me Singapore has some cool book stores. :)

Yeah, I'll be picking this up. The only printed stuff I've got of yours is the sketches in the back of The Dirty Pair re-coloured series...

Oh wow, thats some ancient material. You could always try and hunt down the X-men : Phoenix,Legacy of Fire miniseries I did for marvel a few years back, in the meantime.

I'll do my best to grab a copy, it looks awesome. (Despite my LCS shutting down very soon)

PyroTwilight Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2010
Sad to say but yeah. D:

It closes at the end of this month, the last shipping week will be next Wednesday and the shop will be fully gone by the 30th.

I'll have go to another LCS though to grab this, but it's worth it, looks great.

And I know it's off topic but do you go to Comic Conventions? (I see in your journals you've gone to SDCC so I was just wondering)

Hopefully their numbers don't shrink any more, everyone is feeling the pinch nowadays.

For cons, I just do the SanDiego Comic con normally. Though I won't be going this year sadly.

Looking forward to the issues since the art looks sweet! I wonder what other "effects" will be within this comic, but it does look like a good idea ;)

Here's a online comic shop locator. Just type in your zip or postal code. Phone the closest one and ask if they do mail orders.

There are a lot of comic shops online that offer shipping services if you phone in and set up and account with them.

Or you could wait till it appears on something like amazon or ebay.

I wish I knew more about Image comics shipping methods then I could help you better, but if you were to check out their site you might find a solution.
