Enrica Jang here, excited to announce a new collection of comic stories by….me! ANGEL WITH A BULLET is a 4-part series of short comic stories, each inspired by a song from American music legend, Tom Waits.
In continuing RSM fashion, this series is not an adaptation of any Tom Waits song. All of the stories are original, stand-alone titles, with their own characters and histories, but readers should recognize inspiration borne from lyrics or performances from Waits. Hopefully fellow Waits fanatics will enjoy my homage to this great American master.
The stories will be released throughout the year, and we’ll make announcements about artists and pages-in-progress as time rolls on. For now, stories include:
WILL I SEE YOU TONIGHT?: 8-page story, inspired by “Downtown Train.” Stevie is a New York street-performer with big dreams, singing for her supper in the subway. But dreams don’t always come true in the dirty underground. Art by Lora Innes, Color by Mark Mullaney.
YOLO: inspired by, “Tango Til They’re Sore.” Meet Artie–undertaker by day, Dead Man Beauchamp, pachuco player, by night. There’s a jazz club under new management in New Orleans, and Artie will do just about anything to get in. Art by Kelly Williams.
HOLD ON: inspired by the song of the same title. A long time ago, Trina’s mommy went away to live in California. But Trina still likes to talk to her on the phone…even when her mommy isn’t there.
Posting WIPs from the first story this weekend, and hoping to debut the first of the collection at Special Edition: NYC this summer! The collection will be available both digitally and in print. Keep your eyes here…
