"Creature Cops: Special Varmint Unit" coming in 2015

Today, IDW Publishing and Comics Experience announced a new publishing alliance focused on bringing new creator-owned books to the market in 2015. I'm thrilled that "Creature Cops: Special Varmint Unit" will be one of those titles.

The first short in this universe, at that time called "Animal Control: Special Creatures Unit," was the story I wrote for Andy Schmidt's inaugural online Introduction to Comics Book Writing course back in October of 2009. It's been a long trip to the mini-series, but I'm happy to report the entire series is almost completed.

I can't wait to share more about the project as it gets closer, but if you'd like to read more about the IDW/Comics Experience deal, the press release is right here. And Andy's exclusive interview with Multiversity is right here.

"Creature Cops" is written by me, with pencils by Fernando Melek, inks by Novo Malgapo, interior colors by Juan Romera, letters/design by E.T. Dollman and edited by Paul Allor (Story Editor), Andy Schmidt (Comics Experience), and Bobby Curnow (IDW). The cover to #1, shown above is by Leandro Panganiban, with colors by Kevin Volo.
