After the falling out between Ashes writer Alex de Campi and artist Jimmie Broxton, de Campi decided to pursue having multiple artists draw the sequel to the 2005 series Smoke. This week in an update to the project’s backers on Kickstarter, de Campi said the line-up of artists is now complete.
Joining A Distant Soil creator Colleen Doran and Smoke artist Igor Kordey are:
- Dan McDaid (Jersey Gods)
- Bill Sienkiewicz (New Mutants, Elektra: Assassin, Stray Toasters)
- Milton and Felipe Sobreiro (Heavy Metal, Popgun)
- Richard Pace (New Warriors, Pitt)
- Mack Chater (Earp: Saints For Sinners)
- Greg Smallwood (Villain)
- R.M. Guera (Scalped)
De Campi said she plans to begin serializing it digitally in June and publish the graphic novel in December.
Richard Pace sends up Batman: The Dark Knight Returns in his response to Frank Miller’s recent tirade against Occupy protestors, writing, “I’d prefer to remember Frank Miller as the sometimes brilliant, long-haired nerd glaring from his back-cover photo on The Dark Knight Returns trade rather than the fedora-wearing, incoherent lightweight hack he’s become.”
