GREAT PACIFIC #18, the conclusion of our “Big Game Hunters” storyline, goes on sale tomorrow and I feel like I should give folks a heads up… it’s going to be the last issue of the series, at least for a while. Squandered recurring cast member, Kim Jong-un idea notwithstanding, we’ve told most of the initial story we set out to tell, and Martin and I are moving on to less trashy accommodations for a bit.
When I first came up with this thing back in 2009 or so, I had only really envisioned it going 5 issues. I’d never written a creator-owned monthly before, and Great Pacific didn’t become that, officially, until around when we launched and the first few issues went back to multiple printings. And don’t get me wrong, there’s still more I know we could do, and we definitely want to do more, but…
Martin Morazzo and I have a NEW Image Comics series you’re going to be hearing about soon. It’s another environmental sci-fi thriller about the fucked up things we’ve done to the planet, the forces that might profit from them, and lots of explosions and near-future apocalyptic stuff. And snowball fights. You’ll see.
I feel weird writing this on Christmas Eve. But I just read GP #18 and it made me have many feelings. So… many… feelings.
I’m really proud of the way we wrapped up this story. I’d like to think all the appropriate asses get kicked in the most satisfying ways we could muster, in this issue (previewed below). This Baston motherfucker earned it.
