2011 looks a lot like 2010, no?
Regardless, our first page of the year is my attempt to understand/Explain Top Cow’s Pilot Season.I suppose I can understand the draw to it, the idea that there is quick and easy step into the comic industry.
Through research of past contestants, and taking a look at Top Cow’s sales number, I’m forced to admit that if there was such an easy step, I don’t believe Pilot Season is it.
The page was done by Brendan McGinley:
Brendan McGinley lives in New York City, because the food here is delicious. He interned at Marvel and DC before joining the staff of Wizard magazine. In 2007 he began publishing Dose, a black-and-white humor anthology. He next undertook the historical epic Hannibal Goes to Rome, which was picked up by Image Comics’ Shadowline imprint following its run at DC’s Zuda competition. That same year saw the superhero conspiracy Invisible, Inc., and the story of the world’s greatest supervillain, Heist (co-plotted with Josh Elder). In 2009, he launched Citizen X, a western set in a world where Carthage defeated Rome, and cobbled together the Grassroots anthology (co-edited with Chris Lawson). In 2010 he wrote, drew, colored and lettered the anti-romantic comedy She’s Famous Now, and the dark comedy Reaping Profit. He is currently writing and illustrating for Cracked and Asylum.Upcoming projects include the superhero romance Double Falsehood, and the paranoid horror Black Ambulances with Steven Grant.
We’ll see you on Wednesday, folks.
