So, last week was pretty fun, I’m not gonna lie. There were a lot of very top secret reasons it was a pretty fun week, but one of the biggest reasons is pretty much the opposite of secret. The creators of Dark and 1899 are teaming up to bring SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN to Netflix!!! Ahhhhh!!!! You can read a lot more about it over on
What an exciting time to be a fan! As an aside my LCS sold out of Blue Book #1 very quickly. It seems a lot of people slept on this book (not me, of course).
Dude. You continue to amaze me, all of us really.
Your hype and brand building levels are second to none in the industry. You’re even starting to encroach on the brand building skills of the immortal Stan the Man. Your foresight and relentless is so fucking impressive.
Think about this, you’ve taken all of your creator owned books and you’ve made their Issue-1 covers ICONIC. Not just because the content is good (though that helps a lot!) but because you’ve continually repurposed the covers via homages in other books – which only further reinforces the Tiny Onion brand. ‘If people keep doing homages, it must be a great read, I better pick it up’ – the thinking goes.
Tiny little Erica standing in front of the big woods filled with bigger monsters – is probably the quintessential comic book image of the past five years. And again – the stellar content of the book helped, but it’s those homages that really build it up even further. I’m pretty sure I have a foil DoT homage to SiKtC#1 that I think you sent us Onion Club peeps.
And if that’s not enough- looks what you’re doing with Fear! (I don’t speak leek). We haven’t even encountered her yet, and she’s already a hot character, maybe the hottest character in comics currently. You’re getting her on these homage covers, letting all your partners do different takes and interpretations. And that SiKtC cover homage…… Fear isn’t looking at woods – girl already slayed all the monsters. And we’re next. And you got her on the Wynd cover. Repurposing it as a computer screen with the folders, so clever! The blood smeared finger prints!
Just. Wow. I don’t understand how other comic book creators can’t mimic you. Even if they did a tenth of what you’re doing, and just a tenth as well as you – we’d have a healthier industry. You are just fucking kicking ass on a nonstop basis. Hats off to you. Round of applause. You’re amazing.
I won’t have the money to hunt all these down (though I’m mighty tempted!) and the A-cover and Frisson 1:10 are so good I might not need to. But I might splurge on that Nice House homage. The little emoji details on the top just really sell it for me. What an image! I cannot wait to read Fear’s adventures; horrifying and murderous though they will be. Haven’t been this pumped for a comic since Hox/Pox. Keeping doing you, we all need your output.
Hey guys, been kinda MIA and was wondering if founding members got sent anything yet this year. Thank you, will read through what I've missed as well
Congrats, James! Amazing work and really looking forward to seeing what comes next!
The 1:100 covers look so sick!!! Makes me wish I lived in a city big enough to get my hands on em!
Dude, sick news. You can bet your ass I’ll have all the covers of all issues. Not counting store exclusives because that’s insanity
🔥 Can’t wait I’ll be at that Vegas show. These covers I will have
🤯 That’s so exciting! Congrats! 🤯
