IDW Announces Pirat Tales And Pop! Darlings Of America

At the IDW Publishing: Ideas and Dreams 2008 panel Saturday morning at the San Diego Comic-Con two titles that I am writing were announced — Pirat Tales: The Legend of the Cat O’ Nine Tails and Pop! Darlings of America. The announcement was tucked neatly within some other major announcements by IDW publisher Chris Ryall, including the Locke & Key ongoing by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriquez, Ben Templesmith announcing Welcome to Hoxford, and Darwyn Cooke announcing Richard Stark’s Parker.

Pirat Tales: The Legend of the Cat O’ Nine Tails is a swashbuckling tale of rats sailing the high seas aboard the vessel the Vile Vermin — under the command of the infamous Captain Blacktail. It’s a classic buccaneer tale featuring the story of a young mouse named Pip who is thrust into the adventure of his lifetime. Pirat Tales is created and written by myself, with fantastic art by Orlando Baez and stunning colors by Juan Mar.

Pop! Darlings of America is a twisted tabloid tale of Tinsel Town featuring three major players — the Pop Star, the Starlet, and the Heiress (you know who we’re eluding to), and the Publicist that keeps the spin on the three ring circus that is Hollywood. Pop! Darlings of America is created and written by Neil Kleid and myself, with Chris Moreno beautifully handling the art and featuring awesome covers by Ragnar.

It’s not every con that I attend that features an announcement from a publisher such as IDW that I have two new comic book series debuting on the horizon. It was a good day.
