THE SURFACE #1
(W) Ales Kot (A) Langdon Foss, Jordie Bellaire
What would happen if Moebius and District 9 had a baby? Maybe THE SURFACE!
Welcome to Africa. Ebola is no longer a problem. The West and the East are moving in-and three hacker lovers are searching Tanzania for the place that can change everything: THE SURFACE!
The first issue of a mind-bending action SF epic drawn by the esteemed LANGDON FOSS (Get Jiro!, Winter Soldier) and colored by the Eisner-winning JORDIE BELLAIRE (everything)! THE SURFACE!
I've noticed that in almost every solicit for a new book from pretty much any publisher, the book is described as BLANK meets BLANK with a BLANK twist or some other sort of dribble. And while yes, this book's solicit does start with that, I trust in something bigger than hype solicits, I trust in Ales Kot. This guy has been coming up with the craziest, multi-layered, meta heavy mind f*ck comics on the racks today and THE SURFACE looks to be another trip! Kot also has a great knack for collaborating with artists that really enhance the mood and metaphors of the book which brings us to Langdon Foss. Seriously, this guy draws every grain of rice in a piece of sushi. Damn. Plus y'know colors by Jordie Bellaire because if you can get her, why get anyone else?
