Just wrapped the script for Aphrodite IX #2 with some awesome notes from the inimitable Marc Silvestri it is now in Troy Peteri’s hands. Book should be in stores 2nd Wednesday of June. Stjepan Šejić is working away on the 3rd as you read this! I have to say that I like this second issue a lot. First issues are hard balancing that world building stuff with trying to introduce characters, etc. My hat’s off to all you world building writers, it’s infinitely harder than writing an issue of an established character. Everyone knows’ the back story for the big characters you can get away with a lot of shorthand. I wrote this issue basically with one hand to type which made it harder still. Anywho, hope ya’ll like it. Here’s the main cover for issue #2. And I am writing a science class for it since so many of you complained there wasn’t one in issue 1 — Matt
This was always one of those series that I wish took off more but nice to see it back. It has a Shadowrun vibe with cyber-technology and people that are genetically enhanced, like physical adepts. She might be drawn like the stereotyped female, but they give reasons why she is so attractive. Now I just have to wait for issue two to hit when I return from Phoenix Comicon later this week.
