nce again, here we are at the Autumnal Equinox of another year. Summer officially ended about an hour and a half ago and the season of falling leaves, Halloween, and bonfires began. I went on a little pram pushing pilgrimage to the local standing stones with my tribe of sons earlier and paid my respects to the prehistoric Merseysiders whose cryptic carvings still remain, yet seem to go all but unnoticed, in South Liverpool suburbia. Not so much the elephant in the room as the mammoth at the corner of the road, next to where the ice cream van parks.
Although we’re currently on full-time child wrangling duties here at Moore & Reppion towers, there have been some exciting announcements recently concerning things we have already written and which are currently (or soon to be) being drawn, coloured, and lettered.
Damsels #1 came out earlier this month and seems to have been very well received. Due to the aforementioned permanent child wrangling I haven’t had a chance to sort out a proper page for the series yet but moorereppion.com/tag/damsels/ should give you all the info you want for now (beware some spoilery reviews if you haven’t read #1 yet).
Sherlock Holmes – The Liverpool Demon has been solicited for a December release. We actually finished work on the scripts for this mini back in 2010 but our Trial artist, Aaron Campbell, went and got himself famous so we’ve had a bit of a wait while Dynamite found the right man for the job. That man turned out to be Mr. Matt Triano and you can see some of his work for the series (as well as the stunning Francesco Francavilla cover for #1) at moorereppion.com/tag/the-liverpool-demon/ (there is a Liverpool Demon page, but it needs updating, sorry).
Something that hasn’t yet been officially announced yet is an adaptation/anthology which we’ve written for Self Made Hero and which is due for release this time next year. We can’t say much more than that at this stage but we’re both very excited about the book which, as it happens, has a very Autumnal feel.
So, although our current days are filled with nappies, prams, nursery and playgroups, and our nights not nearly as full of sleep as would be ideal, we’ve managed to bank thirteen individual issues and a graphic novel’s worth of scripts just for you, dear reader. Don’t worry, it’ll be like we were never gone.
