I just got Robyn Hood #5. OMFG. There better be at least a #6. Nononononononono. It can’t just end like that. Uhg. Frustrated emotions!!!
Also, my boyfriend bought me Green Arrow and Black Canary #31: the Rise and Fall of Green Arrow. Uhmgfff…They don’t make beautiful comics like this anymore. (At least in my opinion).
Hi! Pat Shand, writer of Robyn Hood here. There is no #6. That is the end. All is lost. Cruel world!
…but there will be more one-shots and a Volume Three next year.
(Also, the REALM KNIGHTS miniseries featuring Robyn, Red Riding Hood, and others takes place about a month after ROBYN HOOD: WANTED #5.)
THOUGHTS ON COMICS: Ravine Volume One
Stjepan Sejic is among my favorite artists in comics, and certainly (along with Artgerm) the artist I’m always most excited to see creating a cover for one of mine. Now, in Ravine, we get the treat of a book fully created, drawn, and co-written by Sejic. This first volume, from page one to the conclusion (and hell, even the appendix), is as beautiful as the cover. The writing is smart, delicately plotted, and expert in the way it delves out kernels of a very expansive mythology. What interests me most, though, is the character-driven nature of the story. Sejic’s art captures an incredible range of emotion here, working along with his script (co-written by industry giant Ron Marz) to deliver a wholly original high fantasy work.
I can’t wait for Volume Two. And more Lynn. While the whole thing is an astonishing achievement, I’m still reeling from how much that character rocks. Ginger power!
Yesterday at Baltimore Comic-Con was great. I’ve been working with Ian McGinty for over two years, and I met him in person for the first time yesterday. He was killing it at the KaBOOM booth, which was awesome to see. I also met Justin Jordan who, besides being one of the most talented writers doing it, was a pleasure to speak to. Got to thank Tradd Moore for doing our SUCKERS #3 cover and even saw the original. Really pleased to have seen Eryk Donovan and Eric M. Esquivel again, and met some great new artists whom I can’t wait to start working with - Jerald Lewis II!
The fans that came to the Zenescope Entertainment booth when I was there were amazing. There’s nothing like thanking a fan for reading Robyn Hood and having her walk back to say, “No, thank you for writing her.” And the woman who came to me and told me about the catharsis she felt when Robyn exacted her revenge on those who hurt her. I couldn’t have dreamed I’d be experiencing this, so thank you to everyone who is part of it.
