Greetings! This is the Flash trailer for my newest comic series, Inanna’s Tears. As my normal function here at Comics/Manga Worth Reading headquarters is as a reviewer of manga, it may come as a shock to more casual readers that in addition to my rude habit of criticizing other people’s work, I exhibit equally bad taste in my insistence on scripting a few of my own. I try to treat both disciplines like disassociated personalities and encourage them not to interact any more than is absolutely necessary for reasons both creative and ethical.
That said, Johanna had asked that I post a release notice for Inanna’s Tears #1 to let interested C/MWR readers know that it was out there in their local stores. I just so happened to have a fully-scored, forty-five second Flash trailer for the series laying around on my hard drive and thought, “You know, maybe I should let someone else see this…”
Wheels turned. E-mails flew and here we are.
Inanna’s Tears is a proto-historical tragedy, delivered in five acts, set in ancient Sumer circa 3000 BCE. Series co-creator mpMann and I pre-serialized Inanna’s Tears online at Modern Tales from January to June of 2007, and the series immediately transitioned into print with Archaia Studios Press with its debut at the San Diego Comicon this year. I wrote this introduction for Inanna’s Tears when it debuted at Modern Tales and was later interviewed by the most excellent Shaenon Garrity over it.
Interested parties are also invited to the Archaia Studios Press website to learn more about buying a copy of Inanna’s Tears #1 for themselves. $3.95, 25 pgs + house ads, full-color, five issues total and shipping bi-monthly through April 2008. Intended for mature readers due to non-sexualized female nudity and graphic violence.
