Just got this press release:
Superstar comic artists Greg Horn & Glenn Fabry try their pencils in a new market with Anna Smudge: Professional Shrink
Once you’ve defeated every gory barbarian and made it with every busty super-villainess in the comic book market, where else should an award-winning comic artist go to get their kicks?
For Greg Horn (Elektra, She-Hulk) and Glenn Fabry (Preacher, Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere), the answer was clear: kids’ books. … Centering on a motley crew of sixth-graders, The Professionals introduces a new breed of tweenage heroes: Rather than superpowers or magic wands, each kid has a bona fide profession, ranging from therapist to chef to crime sketch artist.
Do they really think that those interested in kids’ books are going to find the phrase “made it with every busty super-villainess” intriguing? Useful? Appropriate? (Although I guess it got them mentioned here.) And if they’re superstars, why are they switching fields?
