FIRST LOOK! The Cull #1
Mattia De Iulis is, let’s face it, a comics making god. His art is absolutely breathtaking.
But it takes A WHILE to do what he can do. And rightly so, it’s legit magical. As a result, and knowing we want to be far ahead before we release actual issues of THE CULL, so we have as little lag between issues as possible, I’ve really been holding back on showing too much off.
But we’re getting closer and I just can’t keep some of these pages to myself anymore.
Here’s your first look at some finished unlettered pages from THE CULL #1*.
Story by me and Mattia. All art/colors by Mattia.
Gird your loins my lovelies cuz this book is gonna huuuuurt so good:
*These are selected pages — meaning they’re not continuous — i.e. this isn’t “the first five pages” or “five pages from the middle” etc.
Yup. Mysteries are afoot. Bring on the paaaaaaain.
I’ve got a lot of stuff to show off and tease in the next couple months, so you’re going to be hearing a lot from us here at 1979 Semi-Finalist Substack…but we’ll always try to make it extremely worth your while.
And here’s a question — what’s the greatest “Kids/Teens go on an insane adventure” narrative you’ve ever ingested? Bonus points for comic recs, but TV/Movies/Novels/Whatevers are all welcome!
