Wednesday Comics

Issue #1 of "Wednesday Comics" comes out today and we're pretty excited about it. I will admit, I'm not usually a fan of the whole capes n' cowls superhero comics but there are a couple factors that have changed my mind. One being that HQ friend and BF of designer Elaine Ho (Roadkill), Brenden Fletcher wrote an installment which was illustrated by childhood friend Karl Kerschl.

The idea behind "Wednesday Comics" is to showcase some of the best writers and artists in comics today in a weekly format that reinvents the weekly newspaper comics section. Each 16 page issue is 28" x 20" and features an adventure by various heroes, each on their own 20" x 14" page which will continue throughout the 12 issue run.

Participating writers and artists include:

The Flash:
Brenden Fletcher & Karl Kerscl
Batman: Brian Azzarello & Eduardo Risso
Adam Strange: Paul Pope
Metamorpho: Neil Gaiman & Michael Allred
The Demon and Catwoman: Walter Simonson & Brian Stelfreeze
Deadman: Dave Bullock
Kamandi: Dave Gibbons & Ryan Sook
Superman: John Arcudi & Lee Bermejo
Wonder Woman:Ben Caldwell
Green Lantern: Kurt Busiek & Joe Quinones
Teen Titans: Eddie Berganza & Sean Galloway
Supergirl: Jimmy Palmiotti & Amanda Conner
Hawkman: Kyle Baker
SRGT. Rock: Adam Kubert & Joe Kubert
Metal Men: Dan Didio & Ian Churchill

Congratulations Brenden! I'm going to pick up a copy on my way to work.
