UPCOMING – Martin Eden

Published On June 29, 2012 | By Richard Bruton | Comics, Upcoming

Halfway through 2012… time to have a look at what some fine comic folks have coming up in the latter part of 2012. This time, it’s Martin Eden, of O-Men and Spandex fame. Book 1 of Spandex just came out from Titan Books, and Eden’s begun the mammoth task of bringing his epic O-Men series back into print, with the first of five books released already – preview of that back here.

 

Now, as for what’s upcoming…..

I’ve got a couple of exciting things coming up at this year’s Thought Bubble! I’m releasing Spandex Issue 7, which is the penultimate issue of the series. It’s the final part of the ‘O.M.F.G.’ storyline, and it answers a lot of the series’ questions. Not everyone is going to survive the issue! 😮

Also released with this issue is a mini artbook called Spandex Black & White, which is a series of black and white portraits of the cast drawn by loads of my indie comics friends! It’ll be a cute little mini-book, and there will be an online gallery too.

I’m also working on the second book of The O Men: The Complete Story, so that should be ready for Thought Bubble too. It’s going to be a monster, around 250 pages long, collecting issues 8 to 17. I think the series really started to come together then and it should be a very meaty read!
