The Lycan is a project that we've been working on and off of behind the scenes for about 5 years now. Like any project that takes a while to percolate and boil over into existence there are growing pains that go with the territory. We had a writer friend come on and off the book, we've had 4 different artists sign on only to sign back off, as well as the normal amounts of developmental hiccups that occur along the way. Most recently we pulled British artist Liam Sharp into the fold only to have him drop out on us when he was handed the opportunity of a lifetime with his business partners - to launch their long-developed comics experience Madefire. For the last 7 months Tom and I have been searching for the right artist and trying out potential talent. It all came down to two very talented fellas. The guy that didn't get the gig will still become known around here because we love his stuff. I think we'll see an Alien Worlds story from him in the not too distant future The guy who won-out and took Lycan by the throat is artist SEAN O'CONNOR, who also hails from Great Britain. He's currently working on pages after a lengthy mission to conceptualize key elements of The Lycan. Here's an ad that we're dropping in our about to be released books, Bad Planet Vol.2 part 1, and the Dark Country GN. This features a bit of Sean's work and I'm sure you'll agree that his work is amazing. The Lycan is a 6-issue series written by Eisner Award winner Mike Carey, illustrated by O'Connor, and will be colored by the amazing Grant Goleash. The book is currently (finally) in active production, so look for the first issue to become available late this year. The year is 1807. Six of the greatest hunters in the world are led by the greatest of them all, Absalom Coffin. In a driving squall amidst heavy seas they are forced to seek shelter in the port of a small island off the coast of Scotland. There they discover a kingdom in deadly peril, locked in the grip of a terror that will test the hunter's skills to the utmost, and challenge their sanity to the edge of reason. All fear THE LYCAN - More sneak peeks on the way soon, and stand by for further surprises and announcements! You won't want to miss this one. - TB
