Lloyd Smith's Ultimus is coming to Surprising Comics! Originally published by Lloyd's legendary Blue Moon Comics Group in a series of issues, the story we'll be publishing was never finished. It's going to be an honor after all these years to get to print the original story, featuring art by Louis Sollune, and get to finish it as well! Now, if only one of my other dreams would come true... to publish a story featuring Lloyd's Kragor The Barbarian. One legendary character at a time, I guess. I've posted one of the original Ultimus pages we'll be reprinting.
By the way, check out Lloyd's tremendous blog over at http://www.diversionsofthegroovykind.blogspot.com/.

Jazzy Jonathan Gilbert is planning to bring Skywald's The Heap to Surprising Comics! By way of a warm-up, check out "The Man Who Became The Heap" from veteran comic book writer Lloyd Smith's terrific blog.
Pablo Marcos is one of my all-time favorite comic book artists, so when I saw this image posted at the Atlas Comics message board I had to capture it and post it here.
