Forget noir, today I return from a world a Sword & Sorcery
Some time ago it was announced that The Mice Templar is being developed as animation TV show produced by Mike the Pike productions and Gaumont Animation. The Mice Templar born as a 5 issues miniseries written by Bryan J.L. Glass and Mike Oeming, with art by Mike. I join the team later, and ultimately I drew 37 issues. The story finished after seven trade paperbacks.
I had the chance to see some of the pre-production stuff and the designs are pretty cool. They are different than the comics (animation has its specific needs and resources) but I think is respectful with the source.
Animation is a looooong path, even more than live action movies and TV shows. Be patient.

THE OLD WARRIORS NEVER DIE
Really enjoyed the latest disc of Dee Schnider: For the love of metal. It´s funny because I discovered this veteran Singer recently. I meet his manga tribute/impersonator first, in the 90s: Dark Schneider from the Kazushi Hagiwara´s Bastard!! series. A book full of tributes to heavy metal. The story was a real mess, but the teen Victor went crazy for its graphic style.
I never was a big fan of the glam style, so I don´t like his early works, but his latest discs have a flavour of craftwork and classicism… And I love the cover. Thinking about my idols from teen again, I can not help thinking on an old Elric of Melnibone fighting his last battle against the Lords of Chaos.
And with rock we finish today!
