…Next, some of Archaia’s creators had the opportunity to talk about their books. I was already familiar with some of them like Josh Fialkov’s Tumor and Tom Pinchuk’s Hybrid Bastards, but others were new to me (or needed pitching to get my attention). David Rodriguez talked about the creation of Starkweather: Immortal from its time at Arcana to the Piers Anthony anthology story that became a single issue and launched the new series. Someone described Jason Becker and Jon Rea’s Killing Pickman as “Dirty Harry versus the devil,” which drove me to pick up the first two issues at the Archaia booth later (they’ve been passing out free single-issue copies of several titles all weekend). The third and fourth issues will be published together soon in a double-sized book.
