YES! It’s true. We’ve been biting our tongues for weeks, but yes, Intertwined has been picked up by New Jersey publisher Dynamite Entertainment and we couldn’t be more thrilled.
Issue #1 will hit the streets in October. All six issues of the first storyarc, plus issue #0 will be released. If you’re a comic book retailer, the only thing you have to do is remember the Previews catalog code when ordering : AUG161525.
If you’re a reader, make sure your LCS orders issue #1!
So how did this happen?
Well, it’s a very common story. Way before we launched the Kickstarter, I shopped around Intertwined at New York Comic Con 2015. A few publishers were interested in the book. All of them had the same key phrase: “make sure your Kickstarter is successful and we’ll sign you”. We did the Kickstarter. We were successful. And Dynamite was the first one to show us love. Simple as that.
I have to give 100% credit to Rich Young, Dynamite’s director of development. He liked the project from the beginning and was a class act from day one. He said what he’d do. And did what he said. We built trust. It’s important in any business. Especially in a tough competitive and creative business.
As I said, we had other possibilities, but Fred and I discussed that in length and he was really interested in the fact that he believed we’d be at the right place at Dynamite.
It’s no mystery that both of us are Bruce Lee fans. It’s one of the thing that got this project rolling. Dynamite has been successfully publishing the Green Hornet, Bruce Lee’s first american gig, for years. Add that to the fact that they also publish a huge number of Noir and pulp books, the Spider-Man Noir writer in me was satisfied.
We are thrilled to be moving forward with Rich, Anthony, Kevin, Juan, Jeremy and all the Dynamite Entertainment team to make Intertwined an international hit.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have more issues to write… 😉
