Kickstarter funds have just been received (after taking their cut, of course)! Brent Larson and Roland Mann will be taking a trip to Ka-Blam soon so Brent can slap his signature on a bunch of them before they ship out. Brent’s script for issue #2 is already in the hands of Luis! Yes, it’s true: Kayless #2 is already in production before you even get your hands on #1. How cool is that?
Cat & Mouse #2
Alex Gallimore, Cat & Mouse’s new Lord of Lead is on the home stretch finishing up issue #2. Just to tease you with his awesomeness, here’s a panel from a recent page. We’re telling you now, keep your eyes on him. We predict great things for him, and you’ll be able to say you were there at the beginning supporting his work.
“I love the energy he brings to the pages,” said C&M scribe Roland, “It reminds me a lot of some of Mitch Byrd’s early work on the first volume. It’s the kind of pages that I can sit and stare at in an attempt to absorb all the energy!”
Cat & Mouse #2 is currently slated to be the next Silverline kickstarter after fulfillment of Kayless #1. “But it will be finished before we kickstart it,” Roland said. Cat & Mouse is the story of Brett, who gets a call from his ex-fiancé asking him to find her runaway kid sister and return her home. Brett goes to New Orleans only to find out said kid sister has been caught up in a human trafficking ring. Longtime fans will be excited to see the return of a key supporting character with issue #2. Attached also is a panel inked by Barb Kaalberg.
R.A. Jones and Rob Davis team up again!
We know you hoped that with Silverline returning you’d see some familiar names and this is just that. When we reached out to R.A. about doing something for the thrice revamped label, we barely had the question out of our mouths and he said yes! The immediate second thought was “let’s see what Rob Davis thinks.” Like R.A., Rob was answering yes before we could finish the question.
Jones and Davis will be teaming up for a 4 issue mini-series titled Twilight Grimm: In the city of Hallowed Heights, there are the “haves,” the “have nots” — and those who feast upon the blood of both.
It isn’t scheduled yet, but you heard it here first!
Barb Kaalberg’s Divinity
If you thought the Empress of Inks Barb Kaalberg could “only” ink in an extraordinary fashion, think again. Barb has dreamed up an amazing tale she’s titled Divinity. It is still early on in the process, but we had to tell you as she was anxious to make Silverline home to her mini-series. More to come later.
Thank you for your support of Silverline!
