Greg Rucka teases new project with Rich Burchett

Writer Greg Rucka, who recently moved on from DC Comics, yesterday teased a new project he’s doing with Rich Burchett on his blog.

Lamenting the fact that he wasn’t going to make it to C2E2 this weekend due to a stomach bug, he posted the design sheet for a “mystery figure” who will star in a new comic he’s doing. And he didn’t show all his cards in his post — in fact, he kept the identity of the artist a secret and offered up some Stumptown prizes for whoever could guess who he was working with. It didn’t take long for a fan to guess correctly.

No word yet on what the comic is called or who will be publishing it.



Judging by the file name… this is Rucka’s American Soldier, isn’t it?

“Another thing I wanted to do is called “American Soldier.” I’m still doing research on this. The idea is… it starts in 1750, follows the service of a man, probably from Pennsylvania, in the Revolutionary War. That’s the first volume. The second volume is the War of 1812, and it’s sister’s grandson. And then, say, the Civil War, and then the Spanish-American War. To take this family’s tree as described by their service to their country all the way up the present. That’s a ten-year project! So I don’t know if I’m even going to get that thing off the ground, let alone find some poor son of a bitch willing to publish it. Or worse, who wants to be the guy or gal who has to draw that? Because I’d love to have the same artist all the way through. That would be so cool!”

Rick Burchett is a great choice. I can’t wait to see it.

Ho boy.

Sounds great. I’m in.
