Said "A couple of reviews by yours truly hitting the online shelves - 'Zenith Lives' by Obverse books & 'Wurms of Blearmouth'. http://www.britishfantasysociety.co.uk/reviews/zenith-lives-by-various-authors-ed-stuart-douglas-book-review/ Zenith Lives by far my favorite of the two; a pulpy re-imagining on Monsieur Zenith (Sexton Blake Mysteries). Really fun stories, a collection featuring such luminary writers as Moorcock, Mann, Hodder & Magrs. 'Wurms of Blearmouth' by Steven Erikson I found to be laden and icky with depravity, violence and mayhem as we follow two side characters of Erikson' on a hilarious Shakespearian-tinged (mis)adventure. http://www.britishfantasysociety.co.uk/reviews/zenith-lives-by-various-authors-ed-stuart-douglas-book-review/"

This is funny. I think several years ago, there was a similar project over at Dreamworks and at Disney. I don't know what happen to the project(s), but the development was amazing of what I got to see. Your concept sounds really interesting. Will you be publishing it as a graphic novel or in another form??
Ian Ink - Over 30 days ago
Thanks Se G... Wow, if Dreamworks wanted to knock down my door I might be persuaded XD This piece was going to be used for a graphic novel for an indie publisher. If you find out the link to the Dreamworks stuff, let me know, I'd love to take a look at it.

Hello, Ian. This was many years ago..I think around 2002 or so. Unfortunately, there's no is no link. What I saw was development art(which is never intended for the public). I was there, job hunting. A colleague from a previous studio, who now was working there, gave me a private tour....which was great. That's when I saw some of things I mention. I also saw some of the vis-dev for what became Kung-Fu panda. There was other stuff, which I don't think has made it to market.
Sorry, to get you excite it.
Se G - Over 30 days ago
So, what happen to the graphic novel?? if you don't mind me asking.
Se G - Over 30 days ago
Hey, there was a typo...it should read.
There's no link.
Ian Ink - Over 30 days ago
Hey Se G, no, don't mind at all. The novel I think is still out there 'back-burner'd' somewhere, awaiting funds as far as I can tell :( Wow @ seeing the inner guts of the design studio! I keep telling myself that one day Weta will phone with a ticket to New Zealand... :D
Se G - Over 30 days ago
Yes that would be nice. Let me know is they call with the ticket!
