The Anchor #4


Written by Phil Hester, art by Brian Churilla, covers by Churilla and Hester.

The Anchor’s battle with the offspring of the demonic Breeder comes to an earth shattering conclusion, but will victory require a sacrifice The Anchor is not prepared to make? Plus, the mysterious Wound holds the key to The Anchor’s forgotten past, but is he friend or foe? Answers revealed, arcs concluded, minds blown, comic racks melted.

The Engineer HC update

I just found out from Archaia that the release for the HC (still only $9.95, folks!) has been pushed back to mid to late November. I can't really get into the why, but let me say, I'm really disappointed, just as I'm sure the people are who pre-ordered it.

I stumbled across this tonight. It's my first drawing of The Engineer. Originally I had imagined him much more Nosferatu-ish. Boy my art has changed since I did this...

The Anchor review!


"...The artwork on the book is by Brian Churilla and I have seen comparisons made to the work of both Mike Mignola and Eric Powell. I can definitely see how those comparisons could be made, but I think that Churilla has a very strong sense of style that is all his own. His art on this issue is quite marvelous, with his fantastic sense of composition, strong linework, and thick strong inks.

The Anchor #1 is one of the strongest series debuts that I have read this year. The Anchor is a fantastic addition to BOOM!’s line-up of original titles, and fits in perfectly with comics like Irredeemable, The Unknown and Unthinkable. The Anchor is fresh, unique, original and gripping! It’s a rare experience to be present at the birth of a classic new series, and reading The Anchor #1 felt very much like that. Phil Hester and Brian Churilla are a creative force to be reckoned with, and it feels like they have tons of great tales in store for The Anchor, and lots of interesting history set to explore. I just can’t wait to see where this story goes, and I can see this fast becoming one of my favourite comic series!"

So go buy it, kiddies!!!

Corneal Errosion

Battling with corneal erosion this week. The Doctors actually had to carve out a chunk of my cornea yesterday. Good news is that it isn't going to cause permanent damage. Bad news? It feels like someone threw sand in my eye, and it will feel like that for a week or so I'm told. I can't work, and typing is a chore as my eyes are super sensitive to the light (and I can only see out of one eye). That, and I can't work or watch after my daughter on my own. Anyhoo, I have a winner on the contest on the previous post(s). When I'm feeling better, I'll wrap that one up. Thanks everybody.
