This Sunday, head over to the Brooklyn Book Festival if you’re in the area.
DEMO Volume 2 is a compelling collection of 6 short stories, by writer Brian Wood and artist Becky Cloonan, about conflicted teens grappling with love, loss and the joy of finding their way in life while dealing with their unexpected super-powers.
So here we are again, the end of another DEMO series. When Brian first came to me with the idea for the original 12 issues, I knew it was something exciting; not only that, but it really spoke to me in such a way that I knew I had to be involved. I had no idea that so many people would pay attention to it, or that the series would carry me so far in my career, but I guess you don't think about those things when you are young and impetuous. I truly believed in Brian and these stories we were going to tell, so I leaped in.
It's all over, all over again, so soon? Every time I think about Demo I'm reminded of how I got into comics in the first place. Parts of this story a lot of you have heard before, because the question is a very common one asked in interviews. But I'm going to try and go a little deeper, since it helps explain Demo.
This weekend is the Maine Comics Art Festival.
DEMO Volume 2 issue #2 “Pangs"went on sale this past Wednesday. Wow, what a wonderfully creepy story! It definitely makes me curious about who I encounter here in NYC on a daily basis….you just never know.
DEMO is back! Following the success of the Eisner nominated and critically acclaimed short story collection, Brian Wood and artist Becky Cloonan (American Virgin, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) reconnect with DEMO Volume 2, a compelling 6 issue mini-series of self-contained stories that are extremely powerful and emotionally charged.
