Hey, you found us! We're at the website equivalent of "that awkward stage". We're busting to show off what we do but worried that if we tell you too much, we'll be old news by the time the actual books go on sale. And nobody involved with making a comic book thinks that is a good thing.
So with our little preamble out of the way, it's time to introduce ourselves. Sitcomics is the brainchild of Darin Henry, a veteran sitcom writer who loves comic books and sitcoms so much, he decided to put the two of them together. Darin has been writing half-hour TV in the US since 1995. He's written for shows on every major broadcast network in the US as well as BBC1 in the UK.
To realize his vision for Sitcomics, he reached out to artists he respected. Living legends Ron Frenz and Sal Buscema, who have enjoyed long and successful runs on some of the biggest titles at Marvel Comics, were brought in to draw the initial super-hero comic The Blue Baron.
Jeff Shultz, regular artist on Archie Comics' Betty and Veronica was a perfect fit for Darin's rompy college-gal vampire Sitcomic 'Suckers.
Tom Richmond is one of MAD Magazine's Usual Gang of Idiots and he serves a similar role at Sitcomics. His gift for movie and TV parodies is a great asset to the Sitcomics Zombie comic book Z-People.
Last but definitely not least is Blair Shedd, .an up and coming talent who is currently drawing the 9th Doctor's ongoing adventures in Titan Comics' Doctor Who series. Blair is doing art and colors on Telepathetic, our book about two misfit 9th graders who develop super-powers which link them to the most popular girl in their school!
And those four books are just the start. We recently hired four more artists for Sitcomics' second wave but the announcement of who's doing what wil have to wait a few more weeks. In the meantime, poke around these few pages, check out the art and drop us a line letting us know which stories and characters you're most excited to see. We think we're onto something pretty special with Sitcomics and we hope it won't be long before you feel the same way too.
See You In The Funny Papers!
