Women in Dark Fantasy Have Changed by Linda Robertson

The Oldest Road

The Oldest Road

I met Josh Brecke last year at Planet Comicon 2017. He had a project he wanted to develop into a comic series which sounded really excellent. So I pitched Outland possibly handling the creative on the project and he went for it.

Created and written by Josh Brecke, The Oldest Road road is illustrated by David Newbold, with Andy Poole on colors, Ed Dukeshire on letters, and Jeremy Mohler doing the graphic design.

It is a 36 page full color comic. We handled all the creative duties on the project!

One of our main clients, Moving Pictures Media Group (MPMG), occasionally brings us graphic novel projects that their clients wants to develop based on a screenplay for a film they have in development. That’s how we we brought in to develop the graphic novel for Santa VS Zombies.

Created by Koji Sakai, Santa VS Zombies began life as a screenplay for a project he wanted to bring to life. I brought in CW Cooke to help convert his screenplay to a comic script, and Cesar Sebastian Diaz to illustrate the book, along with Andy Poole on colors, Ed Dukeshire on letters, and Jeremy Mohler doing the graphic design.

Hollow Harbor: Earth AM

Hollow Harbor: Earth AM

Some years ago at one of the various conventions Outland attended, we met the guys at Hollow Harbor (Josh Barbeau and Josh Sellers). At the time, they were pushing a fantasy book they were publishing called Tyrants. It caught my eye and we struck up a conversation about comics, fantasy, and conventions. Over the next couple years, we would often run into each other and say hello at the conventions we were both attending.

Which eventually lead to them hiring Outland to manage their next comic project, a scifi epic called Earth A.M. After some back and forth, we landed on having long time Outland artists, Alan Gallo and Paul Little, illustrate the book, along with our go-to letterer, Ed Dukeshire. As you can see, the results were stunning.

Check out the first ten pages of the book!

KSU: Megaburgerz & the E.Coli Outlaws

KSU: Megaburgerz & the E.Coli Outlaws

In mid 2017, we were hired by the K-State University science department to help develop a graphic novel that would help to make a very dry topic, e.coli, more interesting to grade school students. It was an interesting challenge! How do you make something like e.coli interesting?

I met with the department heads and we spent quite a bit of time hashing out some ideas about how to present e.coli and spin a story around it that kids might find interesting.

I recruited CW Cooke to write and script the final story. Ger Curti to illustrate it with Andy Poole handling colors. Ed Dukeshire handled letters. Jeremy Mohler managed, art directed, and did the graphic design work on the project.

In total, this was a three issue series, 60 total pages plus three covers. We handled all the creative on it!

Check out the first issue below!
