Local Series Update

Local #11 cover

I was concerned when I saw the last two issues of Oni series Local listed in the last Previews as “Cancelled by Publisher” (instead of “Will Resolicit”). So I asked the writer Brian Wood about it, and he reassured me:

…it looks like the plan is: #11 in April, #12 in May, and hopefully the trade in July. We have #11 complete and part of #12 done.

with Ryan in and out of the hospital this fall, we pretty much gave up entirely on all previous plans and decided to get the entire rest of the series drawn and lettered before trying to solicit anything.

Very sensible. Ryan is artist Ryan Kelly. I hadn’t realized he’d been ill (kidney stone, apparently, and it sounds absolutely miserable), and I hope he’s now recovering nicely. With everything on his plate, he’s got a lot to keep up with! Including re-teaming with Wood on The New York Four for Minx next year.

Thanks for the update, Brian! I look forward to seeing how the intriguing series concludes.

    Working on Christmas and providing useful information. You’re too good to your audience.

    Merry Christmas, Johanna, to you, KC and all my fellow CWR comment folks.

    I should also add that The New York Four is already done and being lettered, so no delays there.
