Over on the Your Mom’s Basement forum, Ash Aiwase started a thread where he and his co-conspirator Sean Maher are recommending indie books to buy during the Civil War lull. So there they are suggesting some kick ass books, starting really strong with Image’s Phonogram and kicking it up a level with Oni’s Wasteland, when Ash throws out a preview for the upcoming Joe Casey/Charlie Adlard book Rock Bottom:
Tonight, I’m gonna drop a little bomb of an exclusive on this here thread. It’s gonna hit like a ton of bricks.
I have been waiting endlessly for this book.
Wait, I feel like I’ve been waiting endlessly for this book. I just found out about it a couple of months ago on the sly, and with Codeflesh being one of my favorite modern comics…
So Rock Bottom. We’re all fans of Charlie, right? Consummate storytelling with an efficient, sketchy style?
From page one, this is a completely different Charlie Adlard than you’ve ever seen.
Scroll down to the bottom to see a couple of pages from the book, which comes out in September. “You’re gonna have thirteen bucks weighing down your pockets because Fantastic Four, Spider-Man and the Civil War books are delayed,” Ash says. “Shell ‘em out on something primo. Shell ‘em out on something real nice.”
