Could We Get The Return Of Paul Grist's Kane As Well?

Could We Get The Return Of Paul Grist’s Kane As Well?

Posted by December 17, 2013 Comment

I remember when Bleeding Cool was following what appeared to be a nineties vibe in comics. The return of Scott Lobdell, Jim Lee and Rob Liefeld to prominence, the return of the enhanced covers, characters like Onslaught, Doomsday and plenty of trading cards.

But there was another nineties that seems to have been returning by stealth. That of the self-publishing boom.

A few weeks ago, we reported on the return of Strangehaven by Gary Spencer Millidge from Soaring Penguin Press.

Yesterday, we learnt that Image Comics was bringing David Lapham‘s Stray Bullets back in March (with a $60 collected volume, to boot).

So what’s next?

 

 

 

 

Kane was a police crime-thriller written and drawn by Paul Grist that had certain surface similarities to Sin City, but with a more cartoony and certainly funnier approach. It reminded me far more of Cerebus, especially the innovative unse of panel layouts, speech balloons and plain picture-perfect storytelling.

I have the trade paperbacks. They are still in print. But we demand more!
