A few weeks ago we brought you a first look at Image’s new bi-weekly series revolving around the popular ‘Spawn’ supporting characters Sam and Twitch called ‘THE WRITER’. Since then not much has come up in the way of news about the title, but today the guys over at Broken Frontier interviewed Todd McFarlane himself and gave readers their first look at the upcoming series.
Sam & Twitch: The Writer, starring NYC’s finest detective duo Sam & Twitch, is the creative child of Luca Blengino (story), Luca Erbetta (pencils), Fabio Bono (inks) and Filippo Rizzu (colors). This team has been crafting a unique crime fiction tale from the boroughs of the Big Apple that sees the detectives stupefied by a strange sequence of events.
Set in the dead of winter with a snowstorm looming, a routine homicide investigation has a literary twist. A suspected drug dealer is found dead, naked and with what seems to be the beginning of a story written all over his body. As the body count rises, the story of Sam & Twitch: The Writer unfolds.
Join this top-notch team of Italian artists and writer as they engage you in a tale — about a tale — that you don’t want to miss.
Sam & Twitch: The Writer will ship bi-weekly starting in May with the final two issues finishing this four issue series in June.
