|© 2011 John Freeman and Smuzz (SMS)|
Time for some gratuitous self promotion for The Quest, a comics project I’m working on with ace artist Smuzz (whose credits include 2000AD and Interzone).
The story springs from a project Smuzz and I started over 20 years ago, but for various reasons it fell by the way side until now.
It might look like sword and sorcery… but trust us, there’s a twist.
There’s a little more information on the strip’s blog here.
There’s still a lot of work to be done – 12 pages are drawn so far, which feature, so far, two fights, more weird creatures than I know what to do with – all of them wonderful – and one of the major baddies has taken its first victim.
It’s all tremendous fun and I hope you’ll enjoy the final results when it’s published.
