Readers of Komplicated.com or viewers of It's Komplicated may recognize the name David Walker as a member of our Elders of The Soul Review Board. In addition to that status, Mr. Walker is also the creator of BadAzzMofo, the late, lamented magazine and the alive and well website. He also writes for MSN and other places. If those achievements were not enough, David Walker and his artistic collaborator Robert Love are seeing their vision of a dark future come to life in the pages of the newly revived anthology Dark Horse Presents.
That vision is called Number 13.
This Wednesday, Dark Horse Presents #4 arrives at local comics shop all across this land. Chapter 3 of Number 13 appears alongside many other stories by a variety of creators. But Number 13 is deserving of not only your attention, but it needs the help of the readers of Komplicated.
More after some sample pages.
There are more in Dark Horse Presents #4, with the lettering.
If any readers of Komplicated are intrigued, then you may want to help Mr. Walker and Mr. Love out.
- First, you can buy this issue and the preceding two issues to read the earlier chapters of Number 13.
- Second, you can start a letter writing campaign to Dark Horse to see Number 13 be collected as a stand alone book.
(And by letters, we mean old fashioned snail mail letters. Emails are easy to ignore. However, a letter–handwritten or typed–is tough to ignore. It exists. It has a reality email does not. And it speaks to the time and effort of the letter writer. It honors the precious time of the editors and the creators)
If you like what you read in Number 13, then write to see more of it in a collection.
Maybe using this upcoming variant for Dark Horse Presents #6 as the cover?
Because those of us who are Komplicated don’t support the work of our fellow Black geeks, then who will?
Dark Horse Presents #4 arrives in comics shops Wednesday September 21st.
