Shane Davis and Michelle Delecki Make the Pixel-Perfect Leap to Creator-Owned for ‘Axcend’ [Interview]


Next month sees the launch of a new series over at Image from the husband-and-wife team of Shane Davis and Michelle Delecki, along with colorist Morry Hollowell. Axcend is the story of a group of eager gamers who, after signing up to beta-test a new game, find that the powers of their characters in-game starts reflecting their powers in the real world. The stronger their game, the stronger they become themselves.

The series marks Davis' move to creator-owned comics, where he'll be both writing and drawing the series. After years working as an artist over at DC, where he created a number of well-known characters (including beloved vom-spewing hate-moggy Dex-Starr), Axcend sees him take video games to a whole new, ahem, level. ComicsAlliance spoke to Davis and Delecki about the move to creator-owned, and what to expect from the series.

Discover “The Valley Of The Shadow Of Death” In Waid And Davis’ ‘Shadow Walk’ [Preview] [NYCC 2013]

Shadow Walk top

Arriving in stores this November from Legendary Comics is Shadow Walk, an original graphic novel from Mark Waid, Legendary founder Thomas Tull, World War Z author Max Brooks and artist Shane Davis. Written by Waid and illustrated by Davis, the premise of the story comes from the well-known passage in the 23rd Psalm from the Bible: "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: For thou art with me." The idea at the center of Shadow Walk is, what if "the valley of the shadow of death" was real? Groups of soldiers discover the valley at various points in history, near modern day Iraq, and none have ever returned alive, until special forces officer James Raines.

Shadow Walk was originally conceived by Tull, further developed by Brooks, and was then fully realized by Waid and Davis. The book debuts next month, but you can check out a 10 page preview below.
