Big Head Press has launched La Muse, a webcomic graphic novel by Adi Tantimedh and Hugo Petrus. I haven’t had a chance to read it yet, but I love the author’s influences. Press release follows.
The story is being serialized on the Big Head Press site, beginning with 13 full pages of story, and continuing to update with three new pages every Monday. It is recommended for older teen and adult readers. Tantimedh describes La Muse as “a science-fiction comedy about Power, the horrors and absurdities of Celebrity, moral dilemmas, and the love-hate relationships between sisters.”
“Think of an updated STRANGERS IN A STRANGE LAND, and the works of Olaf Stapledon, Bruce Sterling, Noam Chomsky, and Harlan Ellison, with all their crazy, mind-blowing ideas and sheer irreverence, and you have LA MUSE.” … [Tantimedh's] recent works in comics include JLA: AGE OF WONDER for DC and the graphic novel BLACKSHIRT for Moonstone Books. He has written the short film ZINKY BOYS GO UNDERGROUND, which won the British Academy Award for Best Short Film, and has directed other short films that have played at international film festivals.
Hugo Petrus is an up-and-coming artist from Spain, who has previously drawn the 8-page short story “Fracture” for Dark Horse Comics and a DOCTOR STRANGE story for Marvel Entertainment. He also works as a graphic designer and advertising artist in his home country.
