The Chimera Brigade Has Arrived!!

November 15th, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

The long-awaited Chimera Brigade series kicks off in the U.S. this December, attempting to answer the question: “Whatever happened to the European superhero?” Drawing on a wealth of cult and popular literatures from the late 19th century to just before World War II, The Chimera Brigade rewrites the fictional history of Euro-adventurers into a shared universe not unlike our own.


A book trailer from publisher Titan Comics.

Scripted by Serge Lehman and Fabrice Colin, with pencils by Gess and colors by Celine Bessonneau.

Comics in the Pipeline: Season of the Snake

November 10th, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

Ever since The Chimera Brigade, I seem to be translating a lot of French SF star Serge Lehman. For instance, this trilogy, Season of the Snake, set in a nexus of interplanetary transport linked to distant star systems by spacetime “chutes.” Sentient hive minds, ambulatory arbors, heroes armored and pregnant… plus a clever use of color bleeding into early two-tone (you can tell from the progression of the covers).  Meticulous art by Jean-Marie Michaud.
