Cameron Stewart previews his new digital-first fantasy NIRO
Eisner Award-winning artist Cameron Stewart (Batman & Robin, Sin Titulo) has announced his digital-first fantasy NIRO with a 19-page preview that delivers a gun-wielding black-clad cleric, menacing masked attackers and a spunky girl in danger, all against a beautifully rendered landscape.
Stewart plans to debut the first digital chapter in early 2013, with readers paying what they want (a 99-cent minimum) to download each installment in DRM-free formats. After several chapters are serialized, he’ll collect them in a print edition.
Here’s his description for NIRO: “Inspired by the works of Moebius, Hayao Miyazaki, Sergio Leone and Alejandro Jodorowski, NIRO is the story of a gunslinger cleric and a young girl who becomes his unlikely companion as they search for The Nomad — a roaming fortress that may hold both the girl’s captive family, and answers to NIRO’s mysterious past.”
