Starscape Storypaper - Exterminate!

What a very unique concept: a magazine that provides genre prose stories accompanied by comics versions of those stories, so that it becomes almost an adult story book. It's a daring and original venture, and I'm incredibly excited to be a part of it from the beginning - Starscape Storypaper will feature a serialized version of my short story 'Extermination Theory' over the first five issues.

In 'Extermination Theory', human colonists settle a planet inhabited by creepy-crawly space-insects. Only the Exterminators Guild, a militant organization mobilized to wipe out the creatures, can prevent total infestation with extermination!

Talented artists Matt Soffe and Dustin Parr illustrated the story (teasers will be posted soon), and Alex Ronald created the fantastic cover image. The first issue of Starscape Storypaper will be available by the end of July/early August. Keep your eyes on the Starscape Comics website for more details.

Order your copy of the Starscape Storypaper (for the princely sum of 1 and 1/2 quid): here.

Edit 06/18/11: Down the Tubes has mentioned the Storypaper on its blog.
