REPORT: Joe Robert Cole In Talks To Write "Black Panther"
Wildstorm announced a new project today at C2E2 by B. Clay Moore and Tony Harris –“a pulpy 1940’s noir, wartime London story” called The Further Adventures of the Whistling Skull.
“The Further Adventures of the Whistling Skull is a thoroughly modern book with dark, twisted roots. Its pulp inspirations are buried in landfills with original copies of PHANTOM DETECTIVE and WEIRD MYSTERY, but the book digs a little deeper into its characters than your grandfather’s pulps ever did,” said B. Clay Moore. “And in our world, a guy who wears a skull for a face is the closest thing to normal you’ll find.”
On his own blog, Moore added, “This book has been in the works for over two years, so I’m jazzed to start getting the word out,” he said. “You can bet I’ll be talking this bastard up a lot before it drops. Creator-owned, introducing a brand new character that Tony and I would like to run with for a long time.”
No word yet on when the series is due.
