Big news today with the announcement of the Madefire motion book reader! Madefire has created something truly unique here, and I’m humbled and ecstatic to be part of it. The roster of creators includes Dave Gibbons, Liam Sharp, Bill Sienkiewicz, Doug Braithwaite, and many others. Read the official press release, then come on back here.
Among all the ridiculously talented people contributing to the first round of Madefire motion books is Gary Erskine, my partner-in-crime on THE IRONS, my first original story.
So, what the hell is THE IRONS? This first story, called “Hybrids,” focuses on Leto, a detective working the hard cases on The Irons — a quarantined planet that has become a sprawling slum. Everyone, including Leto herself, dreams of earning enough scratch to get off-world, to one of the dozens of Utopian planets that exist behind corporate-sponsored blockades. Deep in debt and living case-to-case, Leto finally sees her chance to escape by collecting the reward for capturing a twisted serial killer. A mix of horror, sci-fi, and noir thriller, THE IRONS is also my longest single story yet, and hopefully the first in a series of stories about the planet and its people.
The first installment is coming soon, but meanwhile be sure to check out the other stories — Captain Stone, Mono, and Treatment: Tokyo. They are all great reads.
