Night Stalking in Graphite


Here are three pages of pencils by artist Jaiime Martinez from the new, Kolchak The Night Stalker ongoing series that I'm writing for Moonstone Books. Entirely because of me, this project has taken far longer to get started than anyone wanted, but - I'm getting back on track, and, in fact, am writing a new script this week.

Nice art, though, right? Okay, sure, there's not a lot happening in these pages - it's primarily an expositional scene - but Jaiime does a great job capturing both the atmosphere and real-world nature of Carl Kolchak's universe. I like it and am eager to see the finished product.

More previews soon.

New Kolchak! Best of luck to you on this Chris. May your 2010 bring much success with Carl and Moonstone.

I've been looking forward to the ongoing for a longtime.

I know. I had some troubles and really held it up. But it's chugging along nicely now, and I'm sure you'll be hearing and seeing more about it soon.

I definitely like that art. Our intrepid hero looks his usual undapper self.

Wow very cool and good luck! I love comics and I am slowly working on one myself. Sort of retro Scifi robot craziness. I have heard there were other NIGHT STALKER comicbooks out there. Did you write any of those. So many comics I find it hard to keep up with them all at times.

I wrote a 3-issue Kolchak miniseries for Moonstone called "Night Stalker of The Living Dead." It is being reprinted soon in the Kolchak Tales: Monsters Among Us" collection. There's a link to the book over on the left side of this blog.

Thanks Jaime. Your artwork is beautiful and perfect for the book. Hopefully I'll have another script for you shortly.
