So, MORE BIG NEWS: I am writing, along with the incredible Drew Rausch on art, along with the amazing Gabriel Rodriguez and Gabriel Hardman on debut covers, EDWARD SCISSORHANDS.
This is a huge deal for me, and for Drew and our amazing editor Sarah Gaydos as well. This all started in talks probably at the latter end of last year, and it’s just now being announced and created. Comics are a crazy waiting game, but it’s so worth it for a project this cool.
We’ll be doing a longer and more in-depth interview soon, but I can tell you this: The words I stressed most importantly, when it came to pitching this plot, were Nancy Drew-esque Teen Girl Mystery. We’re playing in Edward’s world, in the look and feel of the movie, but we’re updating it and bringing it forward a few years in some really neat ways. It’s fun, it’s strange, it’s scary, and I like to think it has a lot of heart. The things you don’t want me to screw up about this movie? Trust me, I really don’t want to screw them up, either. I love Scissorhands. Drew loves Scissorhands. Sarah loves Scissorhands. We’re making something really special.
Please, order this from your local comic shop! Tell ‘em I sent you.
