While Green Wake may be on its way out, Wiebe is not going away any time soon. Along with the much anticipated release of Peter Panzerfaust, Wiebe announced that he will be penning a “gory romantic comedy” called The Grim Leaper. The series follows Lou Collins who just can’t stop dying, and waking up in new bodies. In a desperate search to break the ridiculous curse, Lou comes across a fellow doom and gloomer, and yadda, yadda, yadda, they fall in love. Read on for the skinny
Wiebe set up the facebook page over the weekend, offering a preview of the first issue along with some other tidbits of info. While the project is still in it’s infancy it’s hard not to get excited about it. Teaming up with Wiebe this time around is Aluisio Santos. Below you can see the preview, but make sure to check out the Facebook page for more teasers and show Mr. Wiebe your support!
In an interview with Multiversity, Wiebe described the series as “guy who has a curse, and he dies in really gruesome, horrific and hopefully original ways and he wakes up in the body of another person, and he seems to be in this curse where he can’t seem to figure out why it’s happening. And one day he meets a girl who has the exact same curse, and so they’re dating while this is going on.” The release date has not yet been announced, but consider Wiebe has started to advertise, you can likely expect a summer release.
