Caustic Soda: Hello the War is Here 1 of 3

7 May

Happy New Comic Book Day!

Late last month, Dan Crosier finished the illustrations through page twenty-four, completing the first issue. Issue one of our three-issue book was then sent to Patrick Brosseau for lettering. I worked with our layout guru and hops-connoisseur, Muana Fanai on layout and print prep. The variant cover by Joe Triscari worked incredibly well, check it out:

Below you will find a link to a Spotify playlist that captures the scope of Part 1 in sound. Songs by The Stooges, Joy Division, Talking Heads, Wire, Max Richter, Wu Tang, MC5, Baby Huey and more have been part of my ongoing, working soundtrack and inspiration for Caustic Soda.

Summer Viewing

28 Jun

It’s Friday, June 28 and we’re only a few days away from the Kickstarter launch of Caustic Soda. Over the next few weeks I’ll be diving into the elements of ‘process,’ including inspiration. The rad folks at io9 have curated one of the best kludge budget film lists I’ve seen in many a dual earth or double moon. It’s a veritable treasure trove of brilliant and inventive film making.

ImageNotably, director Alex Rivera’s sly fi film, Sleep Dealer, a film about off-shoring, remote labor crews and a terrifying vision of the future.

 

Also included are Korea’s The Host (not Stephanie Meyer), Safety Not Guaranteed (love story nerd swoon), and Duncan Jones’ (son of Ziggy Stardust) brilliant film, Moon.

Add these to your list of summer “must see” films.

Quite a few others are included on the list such as Primer, Timecrimes, and Another Earth. The latter looks like an amazing flick.
