I am incredibly excited to officially announce our first comic that will be released in “issue” format, both in print and digitally.
Marie and Jeanne #1 starts a story about two extraordinary girls from Domremy, France in the 15th century. One of them is Joan of Arc. It will be a story about her, of course, and The Siege of Orléans, and ultimately, her death and sentencing - but along the way, it’s mostly just a story about friendship and trust.
The most exciting part of it for me is that it is illustrated by the mindblowingly good artist James Neish, who I’m proud to have known for a really long time(since 5th grade), and one of the two people I first forayed into the comics world with when I was 15(so long ago!). He was the best artist I’d ever met when I was 10, and he played a significant part in instilling a permanent love of fantasy and comics and other assorted nerdy things in me. We’ve grown up and a bit wiser now(well, he is, I’m still a dumbass), but I’m still writing and he’s still illustrating, and I am honored to have been able to hire him to partner with me on this project.
So, check out the preview pages and look out for Marie and Jeanne #1, coming out in March 2012!
