I've been so distracted lately, I nearly forgot: According to Diamond Comics Distribution's shipping list, the second issue of my Kolchak miniseries, Night Stalker of the Living Dead, is finally hitting comic shops today, June 25th.
After the set-up in the first issue, the story heats up in part two, with newshawk Carl up to his frayed collar in hungry cannibal "zombies," both human and... otherwise.
It's taken a long time to get this series out – I'm actually lettering the third issue this week! – but I've been very pleased with the response I've gotten from Kolchak fans so far. I haven't gotten much feedback, but what I have gotten has been quite complimentary.
I just hope that it sells well enough to be collected into a trade paperback someday... especially if Moonstone printed such a trade on nicer paper stock to better showcase Tim Hamilton and Ian Sokoliwski's artwork and coloring.
But since I've heard nothing about any plans to do so, and Moonstone's not always predictable in that regard, if you're interested in the story, you better pick up the individual issues as they come out. And if you do, I'd love to hear what you think.
