Mondo Atomic: Plan 9 is finished.
Plan 9 is finished. Well, for the most part. Dekker is making some changes to the dialogue and I’ll be editing the lettering in those panels. I uploaded some preview panels, check them out! Here’s a bit of info on Mondo Atomic and Plan 9:
From publisher Fringe Majority’s website:
“Plan 9, The Brain That Wouldn’t Die, Robot Monster!
Reimagined in 2011!
Artists Steve Buccellato (Elephant Men, Ultimate Spider-Man), John Amor (Pluck, 1888), Matt Timson (Impaler, The Darkness), and Zane DeGaine (Bernie’s Bot) team up with writer Dekker Dreyer to explore the world of three cult classics in ways the original creators never could. With updated science, adult situations, and more menacing monsters Mondo Atomic will satisfy both die-hard cult fans and lovers of science fiction / horror.
Coming to iOS (iBooks, iPod, iPhone, iPad), Android, Wowio, Kindle, and other digital devices. Special print edition in 2011!”
“Few took Plan 9 From Outer Space seriously when the flick took flight in 1959, but a half-century later, the cheesy saga about extraterrestrial invaders is being respectfully rebooted as Mondo Atomic, a graphic novel by Dekker Dreyer.
Dekker’s mashup combines elements of Plan 9 with Robot Monster and 1962’s immortal sci-fi opus The Brain That Wouldn’t Die.
Copping to the shortcomings of his goofy source material, Dekker says he upped the ante with accurate science, adult situations and monsters designed to evoke actual fear rather than giggles. “The original filmmakers were limited by so many factors that we aren’t,” Dekker says in a press release. “We’re hoping to bring their ideas to the page in a way we think they’d like to have seen them.”
Mondo Atomic, featuring art by Steve Buccellato (Elephant Men), John Amor (Pluck) and Zane DeGaine (Bernie’s Bot) will be distributed for iPhone, Android and Kindle. For hard-copy enthusiasts, publisher Fringe Majority plans a Collector’s Print Edition.”
I’ll post more about it as it gets closer to release. Preview panels can be found in my gallery under the featured section and sequential art folder.
