The Damned

The Damned Returns!

Ten years ago, Brian Hurtt and I released our first comic together. The Damned was a five-issue limited series of gangsters, tommy guns, and demons. We followed that series with The Damned: Prodigal Sons, a three-issue story. While the first five issues were collected, the follow-up was never released as a trade. Now, after a decade, Brian and I are returning to the prohibition-era world that started it all, and we’ll be joined by our collaborator on The Sixth Gun, Bill Crabtree! This time around, the book will be ongoing and in-color!

From the announcement:

During prohibition, gangsters grew rich on our vices, and rivalries between criminal organizations resulted in open war. But unknown to the masses, a more sinister power controlled the crime cartels, using greed, gluttony, lust and other sins to fuel a more lucrative trade: mortal souls. Enter Eddie, a mortal who lost his soul long ago. Caught in the middle of competing demonic families, any other human would’ve gotten the ax long ago. But Eddie’s got a special talent that keeps him on his feet. One man’s curse is another man’s gift. The Damned is hard-boiled noir with demons, and the team behind The Sixth Gun is bringing it back with new colors, a new format, and a new ongoing tale of tommy guns and hellfire.

To kick off this exciting return to The Damned, we’re re-releasing the first story arc in trade paperback, in a new format, IN COLOR, and at a FANTASTIC PRICE that should ger old and new readers excited about the book!

It’s Showtime for The Damned

I’ve been sitting on this for some time, but now it’s time to share some big news regarding my demon-meets-gangster graphic novel, The Damned!

Showtime has put a series into development based on the book.  It will be written by feature writer David Hayter who has co-penned several big-screen comic book adaptations – X-Men, X2 and Watchmen. The show is being described as a modern adaptation of the comic. It will revolve around Eddie, a cursed man, who is stuck in the middle of a turf war in modern day Chicago where mobsters are demons. Eddie must play all the angles to keep the warring families at bay while trying to reclaim his soul.

I’ve been privy to some of what is planned for the series, and I gotta tell ya, it is gonna be awesome!

While you’re at it, now would be a great time to ask your local comic shop or bookstore to order the book for you… or you can order it here.

Weekend Update, March 27

I’ve been at Planet Comicon all weekend, and I just got back home. This was my first time going to this show, and I’m not sure what I expected. But it was a phenomenal event. I really enjoyed it. That, of course, means I’m exhausted… which means this update is down to the wire!

Here are a few things you might have missed if you blinked!

A few weeks ago, Adam Warrock released a mixtape of songs based on Oni Press titles. Two of the tunes were inspired by The Sixth Gun and The Damned. Adam posted a few notes on his site that give some interesting insights into his process when it came to these songs. Check them out here.

Have you ever wondered who my five favorite Avengers are? Well, wonder no more! Here’s a quick rundown with a healthy does of nostalgia.

And now for a very special episode of the weekend update. If you haven’t heard of Shaken Manchild Syndrome, then you need to watch this. In particular, check out the reading material of choice for Shaken Manchildren (around the 13 second mark).
