It’s always great to see projects from Outré contributors and friends come to life or continue to progress. Here is a quick round-up of some of those projects:
Cécile Brun did a fantastic water colour illustration for Outré #1. Together with Olivier Pichard, the other half of Atelier Sentô, she’s working on a lush and beautiful point and click game called The Coral Cave. They’ve also made short films and continue to contribute to Josh Tierney’s Spera comic book.
Go to their atelier to see more of Cécile and Olivier’s beautiful projects.
Jim Giar – who did the pencils for The Most Dangerous Place for Children in Outré #1 – is the new artist on Mark Bertolini‘s new comic book mini-series Broken. And Tim Switalski, who coloured Jim’s lines for The Most Dangerous… joins them as well. A terrific team to continue the series.
The story takes the origin premise of Batman – a kid witnessing his parents being shot – but in Broken, the kid isn’t the heir to a billion dollar empire. Jim and Tim join Mark from issue #2 and out.
Before you leave, we’d also like to direct you to Red Stylo’s anthology Unfashioned Creatures – an anthology where writers and artist tell stories inspired by Frankenstein – and especially to James W. Powell and Noel Tuazon‘s story The Family Curse.
A rare first edition of Frankenstein could hold the key to a gruesome series of murders that took place over 200 years ago. Mr. Willard wants justice for his ancestors, but will life tragically imitate art once again?
Obsession is the order of the day in “First Edition” by James W. Powell, with art by Noel Tuazon. The digital download includes extras you can ONLY get online, including the short comic “Frankenmorning,” by Susan and Jeff bridges, with art by Penelope Gaylord; and “Shelley Portrait” by Trevor Hanowski.

That’ll be all for now. Stay tuned for more creator spotlights and teasers for our second issue in the coming Wednesdays!
