Si Spurrier’s Next Big Thing

Si Spurrier has posted about a new comic book project. He writes;

See, there’s this comicbook project which I’ve been working-on secretly for 3 years. It’s epic and it’s dark and it’s deconstructive and it’s gorgeous and it’s mythic and it’s sleazy and it’s brutal and it’s at one and the same time the most high-concept and the most prosaically human thing I’ve ever written, and above all it… just… keeps… getting… bigger.

What you’re looking at there is a single panel, 1/6th of a normal page….

A couple of years ago, I shared a flight with Si Spurrier to New York, and he had copious notes from this project, I believe. Intensely complex, there were graphs and charts. All rather Big Numbers… and I think it’s for Avatar.

I’m sharing flights with Si Spurrier this week, as well as Kieron Gillen, flying out from Heathrow to Phoenix for the Phoenix Comic Con. See what else I can find out…
