Kurtis Wiebe (INTREPIDS) and Riley Rossmo’s (PROOF, COWBOY NINJA VIKING) disturbing tale of the town of GREEN WAKE will soon be collected into its first trade paperback, but the horrors won’t end there, because Image Comics and Shadowline Productions are making GREEN WAKE an ongoing series.
“The response to GREEN WAKE has been so encouraging,” said Wiebe. “It’s such a great feeling to realize that this brand new idea, this new world that we’ve created in GREEN WAKE resonates with readers, and that they want to read more.”
“Kurtis and I have put a lot of strange, gory stuff into this book,” added Rossmo. “Sometimes we stand back and look at what we’ve come up with, and there have been more than a few times that we’ve wondered, ‘Is this too far?’ Fortunately, it seems our readers are just as sick as we are!”
Wiebe continued: “The move from miniseries to continuing series is what we hoped for, as GREEN WAKE proved from the beginning to be a complex story full of new angles and side plots. At this point I think it’s safe to say that we aren’t going anywhere. Both Riley and I have plenty more up our sleeves, and this first collection is only the beginning!”
