TheOtherWatch: Rod Usher of The Other on his only-available-in-Germany comic.
Our first comic-book was published in 2007. It was a very special thing for us, especially because we didn’t print and publish it ourselves, but worked with a publisher that is well known in Germany for cool Horror comic books. I wrote a treatment with an outline of the story and some dialogue suggestions and the guys at the publishing house made that into panels. It was incredible to see page after page come to life. The story is about each character’s history and how our Doctor Caligari (drums) resurrected us to form a band. It’s an homage to the old EC horror comics and we’re really happy how it turned out. Right now, we’re working on the second part of the book and it should be released in early 2011. Since our new album is doing really well in the US, the publisher is thinking about combining both books into a paperback and translating them into English. We really hope it’ll work out ’cause the interest in the band and our comic book seems to be growing all the time.
