Comic writer Tom Taylor has a new graphic novel coming out that is a sequel to his award winning The Deep. Here’s a preliminary synopsis for The Vanishing Island.

When an island is ‘completely not hit by a tsunami’, a new investigation begins for the daring aquanauts, the Nekton family. Danger, secrets, peril, ancient messages, shocking revelations, and the first word to rhyme with ‘orange’. The Nektons are back, along with Jeffrey the Fish, in an adventure every bit as mysterious as the deep blue sea.

Kevin J. Anderson has announced his new sci-fi comic project with Gestalt Comics: STALAG-X.

“STALAG-X is a gritty story of human soldiers trying to survive in an alien concentration camp, and one mysterious prisoner who calls himself “Joe Human.” He cannot allow the vicious aliens to win . . . but because of his own dark past, he doesn’t dare allow himself to be rescued either.” -Kevin J. Anderson

Along with Steven Sears, the two developed the idea for film or television, but after being introduced to Wolfgang Bylsma at Gestalt Comics, decided to switch gears. They have also recruited legendary comic artist Dave Dorman to do the covers and Mike Ratera for the interior art.

There’s no release date yet, but Kevin has posted some of the concept art on his blog which you can check out here.

Interview with Tom Taylor and Book Contest

Rowena Cory Daniells has an interview with another Star Wars writer, this time the incredibly talented comic writer Tom Taylor. There is also the opportunity to win a free copy of Tom’s graphic novel The Deep. The interview covers a range of topics from Tom’s good old days in school to Star Wars canon, comedy, and his other projects.

Q: Rombies (written by Tom Taylor, illustrated by Skye Ogden, Colours by Mikiko Ponczeck) is a historical paranormal tale set in ancient Rome. What inspired you to set a story in ancient Rome? Have you always been fascinated by its history?

Skye Ogden inspired me. Honestly, this was originally his idea. I just ran with it, and I’m very glad I did. Gestalt actually asked me to write this very early on in our working relationship and I said no. I’m not a massive horror fan and I wasn’t sure this was the project for me. The night after I said no, I had a dream about Gladiators fighting zombie lions beneath the Coliseum. I called them the very next morning to say yes. I wanted to see Zombie Lions come to un-life. We made that happen. Where we plan to go next is epic.

I highly recommend checking this interview out. It includes some pretty fun humor, and the part that covered The Example was enough to convince me to go out and buy it. Click here to read the full interview and for a chance to win The Deep.
