Friend and fellow writer Aaron Thomas Nelson has a comic book coming soon called MARLOW (JUL083655) published by the fine folks at Arcana.
In Aaron's own words:
Marlow is a zombie comic that’s not about zombies. Inspired by Joseph Conrad’s “Heart of Darkness”, I set out to write a comic that dealt with issues like the War on Terror, Globalization, and Human Experimentation. In Marlow, the zombie is simply a trope for the loss of choice and freedom—a mutilated free will—something that should concern us all in an age where terror dominates our political and social landscape.
I read an advance copy, and MARLOW is incredible. As a writer, Aaron always presents something layered, intelligent, and thoroughly engaging. Also, the art is unlike anything I've seen in a comic before. Almost entirely done in shaded silhouettes -- it absolutely works. I can't describe it. You'll just have to see it yourself.
