Last summer, I wrote my first essay for the Sequart Organization, which was published in New Life and New Civilizations: Exploring Star Trek Comics, a collection edited by Joseph F. Berenato.
Having failed to learn their lesson after that first go-round, Sequart and Editor Joe, having now enlisted the expertise of friend Rich Handley, invited me back to play, this time to yammer on a bit about the various comics incarnations of another favorite film/TV series of mine. You know what I’m talking about…the one with those damned, dirty apes. The essays for this new book have been written and delivered and edited and red-penned and whatnot, and the results of all that writing and delivering and editing and red-penning and whatnot are a little something Sequart, Rich, and Joe like to call The Sacred Scrolls: Comics on the Planet of the Apes!
And hey! We now have cover art! Check it out:
Pretty sweet, huh? The cover was created by artist Pat Carbajal, who previously contributed the cover art for New Life and New Civilizations.
You can read more about The Sacred Scrolls over at the 13th Dimension website, including a full contributor run-down and the subjects they’ll be tackling. For instance, I took on the subject of time travel as portrayed in the various incarnations of Apes comics, with a piece titled “Let’s Do the Time Warp Again, and Again, and Again, and….”
Go on, take a gander:
My understanding is that The Sacred Scrolls is currently targeting a late-spring/early summer publication. Stay tuned for further details, so you can run and get your stinkin’ paws on it.
