No (Comic) Code
I’ve been working on this project for quite some time, and I can finally share some details about it in readiness for next month’s Kickstarter campaign.
No (Comic) Code is an anthology book, featuring over 60 small press and professional comic creators, all of whom share a mutual love for the band Pearl Jam. The line up includes the likes of Ron Marz (Witchblade), Marc Laming (Planet of the Apes), Sterling Gates (Superman), Rob Williams (Judge Dredd), Mike Collins (Dr Who), Michael Moreci (Hoax Hunters), Paul Allor (GI Joe), Wilfredo Torres (The Shadow Year One) and Richard P Clark (House of Gold and Bones). One of our creators Vicky Stonebridge has already done some Pearl Jam inspired work.
The book (which will be square and LP sized) will feature 17 stories inspired by the songs from the 1996 album No Code (and a few from the sessions), plus a series of illustrated essays about Pearl Jam. Needless to say, as a rabid fan of the band for over 20 years, I’m rather excited about the possibility of bringing this to life.
To whet your appetite, here’s some work in progress from Around the Bend, written by Ollie Masters, with art by Robert Carey.
