We’ve been getting a lot of e-mails lately from Collectors asking what’s up with The Lost Room comic, so here’s the scoop. We just got the first draft of Issue #1 of the series this week. The story is by Christopher Leone, Laura Harkcom, and Paul Workman. The comic script is written by Christopher Leone. We have read it and it is cool…very cool! Readers that have never heard of the TV series are going to find this very accessible and they’ll be drawn into the story very quickly. (They’ll also have the added bonus of finding out the story goes beyond the comic! Lucky them!) Fans of the TV series should also be very happy. You’ll be seeing familiar Objects from the show as well as a few new ones with mind-blowing powers. You’ll be seeing some characters from the show, too.
We are in the process of selecting an artist now. We are going through all the artist submissions to the site and are narrowing it down to a few artists whose style matches the story. We have to approach them and sign them on. Once that is done, they’ll start work. The release date will depend on how the artist’s work is progressing. If all goes well, you’ll probably see it on shelves in Late Summer or Fall 2011.
Thanks for your support on this series and we’ll be sure to give you periodic updates and sneak previews as work progresses. You won’t be disappointed!
