Archive for the ‘IT!’ Category
Comic Book Resources has a nifty little feature about my new IDW mini-series, MGM Drive-in Theater: IT! The Terror From Beyond Space.
“…one of the lines in my proposal was ‘This is a world of sleek, stainless steel rocket ships and spirited explorers, not corporate oligarchies and blue-collar space miners.'”
“As with the best of stories, the core of ‘IT!’ to me is the human drama. Sure, the monster is scary, the rocket ship is ‘futuristic,’ and so on, but ultimately the movie hinges on how the crew members can come together to defeat the creature,” Naraghi said. “Naturally, this is complicated by clashing personalities, jealousies, fear, anger and all the other elements that make us relate to, care about and ultimately cheer on the protagonists. So I’ll be hinging my update on the personal dramas, as well as the action.”
Issue #1 hits the stores in July, kids.
The July solicitations are out, so I figured I’d promote them here as well. I have two comics shipping that month:

Look for some preview art here as soon as I get the word from my editor.
