New Rat City Now From Scout Comics
The successful Kickstarter is now available
After two winning Kickstarters - both of issue #1 and the complete story, New Rat City has been picked up by Scout Comics. It is now available in print at your local comic shop or digitally on the Scout Comics website.
From writer Honor Vincent and art and colours by George Quadros, this is an excellent story, with some fun art and worth checking out. There are options for two different covers, and Scout Comics is releasing the whole series.
It's 2083, and there's not much left of New York city after years of floods, pests, and infrastructure mismanagement. Broadway is a sea of grass that ends at the 59th Street floodwall, and tourists arrive by ferry to take glass bottom boat tours of downtown and the outer boroughs. The only people keeping the city habitable for its few remaining residents are the pest controllers, and humane laws mean they generally aren't allowed to kill. Felicia Shepherd is a pest controller who has recently taken over the family business, after her mother disappeared and a rat-related accident took her dad out of commission. Felicia does the best she can for her clients, but her job becomes much harder when swarms of unnervingly organized pests start running rampant across the city! Enjoy the first issue of this non-stop! Title followed by the entire story collected soon after in one volume.
Writer Honor Vincent also teased in his newsletter some of his future and past projects you can pick up:
I’ve also got more upcoming work in 2000 AD: Prog 2300 will have a Judge Anderson (!!!) zombie (!) story I wrote for their upcoming Judgement Days event. You can pick it up on September 21st. (And if you haven’t read the original Judgement Day story arc from 1992, definitely do that!) There might just be some more Tharg’s Future Shocks/Terror Tales from me in the offing as well…
And way back in June I had a story, “The Flayer,” in the latest Tales of Terror Quarterly from Zenescope! It’s an 18-pager horror (surprise) story I wrote based on a prompt they sent me, which was new process-wise, and lots of fun!
