At Emerald City Con, my cousin found out that Carbon Grey's next mini-series in the works! Luckily my LCS ordered enuff of the Origins books for me to get both copies! Both printings of volume 1's first issue sold out at there, but I _still_ had to order the 3rd issue from Midtown Comics.
I just read issue #2 of the Carbon Grey Origins mini. Did not run into any printing / trimming issues (as mentioned in related thread). In the CGO #2 they got got Khari back doing majority (98%) of the drawn art, plus all the same digital painters. The first Origins book had some other dudes (Pop Mhan, Joffrey Suarex et al) and while good (IMO), some aspects of the Diesel Punk
felt different than the art style in the mini-series. Anyhow, issue #2 looks & feels 100% right on!!
The last time I liked a "non inked" book as much this was the stuff that Kenneth Rocafort did on the Madame Mirage series for Top Cow. Wow
Awesome! Read on twitter (from Image) that the next story arc is on the Kickstarter website to raise funding for the next issues. Checked it out and they do have some bad@$$ incentives (original art, the ashcan, chase covers, fine art prints/posters, etc.)
I kicked in $10 cuz I want the Ashcan (see the Updates tab). Even if you aren't interested to throw-in, there's still some sweet art to see! URL is: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1457867026/carbon-grey
