Here’s some of the current news about Canadian comic book creators and supporters.
Newsarama reported on a new four issue mini-series from IDW Publishing. Writer Ryan Ferrier is teaming up with artist George Kambadais for I Can Sell You A Body. Slated for stores this December, the focus is about a thriving business selling new living bodies to dead souls who want to get back among the living. When asked about the project, Ryan said: “I Can Sell You A Body is one of those projects that reaffirms our deep, personal love of the comics medium; this is a wickedly supernatural thriller, a rousing crime caper, and hopeless love story all rolled into one …. I couldn’t be more excited to bring Denny Little’s very strange talents and trials to life with my co-creator and illustrator, George Kambadais.”

Marvel reported on a slew of new 2099 one-shot comics coming your way this December. To celebrate the 80th anniversary of Marvel Comics, these new one-shots will look 80 years into the future. Chip Zdarsky is slated to write Doom 2099 #1 and said: “I loved the original DOOM 2099, so this is a total dream project, getting to help reinvent the world. In our one-shot we do our best to really hold onto the spirit of the original, of Victor Von Doom starting from the bottom, while giving it some new twists, like his astounding 2099 hip hop career.” Ed Brisson is on tap to write Ghost Rider 2099 #1. He said: “In GHOST RIDER 2099, we reimagine the origin of Ghost Rider that pays homage to the ’90s series, but still pushes the character in a new and exciting direction. Lots of cameos for sharp-eyed readers!”
