The Return of: Stephan Franck

Earlier this year, I interviewed animator and comicsmith Stephan Franck about his creator owned comic book Silver and the recent completion of his Smurfs special The Legend of Smurfy Hollow. Stephan contacted me at the beginning of the week to let me know that you can purchase the second of issue starting this Wednesday, via Dark Planet Comics' web store. The first issue was available on Comixology and in one or two brick and mortar retailers-- presumably you will eventually be able to find it in those places too. He says that the second issue "takes a clear turn for the supernatural," and I can tell you that the things that made the first issue great have gotten better here. While Franck's drawing in the first issue seemed a little rushed, he's really on top of his game now, and his compositions, and his storytelling, have gotten increasingly interesting. Silver is just beginning to hit its stride, and, if you're interested in vampires or heist stories, I'd give it a shot.

Also upcoming is the debut of The Legend of Smurfy Hollow, which will first air on ABC Family on 10/27. I don't have a television, so I won't be able to watch, but it's supposed to be great!
