Remember Hepcats, one of those titles that, along with Cerebus and Bone, were seen as the self-publishing stalwarts of the early 1990s? Creator Martin Wagner has laid low for a long while, but he’s back now and apparently attempting to complete his long-uncompleted saga involving people with animal heads. He’s got the first two pages of a projected eight-page minicomic up on Flickr right now, with hopefully more to follow soon:
This is only the start of the story, which is set in 2006, and contains no Snowblind spoilers, for those of you waiting for a resolution to that story. It is still forthcoming, but I find I need to do some simpler work like this first, before trying to throw myself back into a complex and lengthy graphic novel plotline that I sadly abandoned ten years ago and really haven’t thought about since.
I credit the ongoing love and support of Hepcats fans on the Yahoo Group for the existence of this. You guys and girls did the frickin’ impossible. You got me started on a new Hepcats story after ten years, a decade during which I had decided full stop that I was done with comics for good and all.
