Editor Mark Doyle shares how Jeff Lemire’s ULTRA THE MULTI ALIEN story in STRANGE ADVENTURES (on sale now) came about. Take it away Mark. “You should call Jeff Lemire,” former Vertigo Editor, turned-Hollywood Mogul, Pornsak Pichetshote said to me. “He’s crazy about all that old stuff.” That’s how “Ultra The Multi-Alien” started. It was all PP’s idea. The man is an idea machine (that must be why they plucked him from the dark halls of Vertigo to go work for the West Coast brain trust).

Jeff Lemire is extremely creative. As writer and artist of SWEET TOOTH he’s trying new techniques all the time and issue #18 is the perfect example. Told horizontally with text and illustrations, the conclusion to Animal Armies is reminiscent of a children’s storybook. Here’s a glimpse inside so you know exactly what I mean:
More than I decade ago my friend Stephen John Phillips suggested that we collaborate in the artwork for a new graphic novel, a fumetti about a harem. I did not know that this would be the beginning of a long work relationship with Vertigo. Of course, I had been aware of the imprint since its inception and enjoyed the bulk of its titles, as I matter of fact I used to buy all of the books that Vertigo published! But I was not sure if there would be other projects after this first one∑ Well, lo and behold, there have been many!
