Kurtis J. Wiebe has been teasing “Rat Queens” for the past few weeks and the first preview has finally landed. Wiebe teams up with Meg Dejmal and artist John Upchurch for “Rat Queens”, a fantasy tale that features a gang of lewd monster hunting women who slay beasts in order to pay for their other vices.
Wiebe had originally planned to Kickstarter the project, but it was quickly swooped up by Jim Valentino at Image’s Shadowline branch. Take your first look at the fantasy madness below. READ MORE
The tag line of Image Comics new series, Grim Leaper, is, “A love story to die for.” Needless to say that made me a little hesitant to open up to page 1, especially since the cover was slightly pink and features a dude with a black leather jacket and faux-hawk… But the “i” in “Grim” was dotted with a skull, not a heart, so I gave it a shot. Kurtis J. Wiebe offers something completely different from his normal bag of tricks, with some wild twists and turns throughout. “Grim Leaper” is a very different book, to say the least, and it’s shaping up to be quite the thrill ride.

Kurtis J. Wiebe is on fire! He’s got “Peter Panzerfaust” well underway, “Debris” coming out this summer, and now he’s got another little series called Grim Leaper heading your way next month. For someone who wasn’t even in the comics industry three years ago, Wiebe became a big name to look out for quickly following the success of “Green Wake”. “Grim Leaper” tells the story of a man who seemingly cannot die. After his thirteenth failed attempt, he discovers something new, something to give him life again, love. Wiebe is delivering a gruesome and gory romantic comedy that combines Final Destination with Romeo and Juliet. Below you can check out a load of bloody teaser pics and the some more details. Stay tuned for an interview coming up with Wiebe about the series! READ MORE
Every once in a while a book comes along that you pick up and think, man I wish I’d thought of this story, well my friends, Green Wake (Interview) is one of those. Two up and comers from Image Comics, Kurtis J. Wiebe (“The Intrepids”) and Riley Rossmo (“Proof”), bring you one of the weirdest debut comics of the year. Green Wake is dark, gritty, confusing and comparison can easily be drawn to the surrealist master, David Lynch. As such an odd series, it’s really no wonder it has given rise to some mixed reviews, receiving both praise and criticism from readers (really, reviews are all over the place). In Green Wake, Wiebe and Rossmo bring you into an ethereal world set alongside a suspenseful murder-mystery storyline, leaving you with an uncomfortable feeling in your gut. Whether you’ll love it or hate it, Green Wake is one book that deserves some attention. Read on for the skinny…
