Earlier this year, we promised to announce three books for our following slate of releases. You already knew that ISOM #2: Ill-Advised Part 2 would be one of them, but we are now thrilled to be able to finally announce the title of and writer for the book that will follow that! Hold onto your butts because the legendary Chuck Dixon is joining the Rippaverse to pen Alphacore #1!
Anyone even moderately familiar with comics should be well-acquainted with Chuck’s work. His accolades are evidenced throughout his body of work, having written some of the most lauded runs on a number of characters at both the Big Two as well as across many of the most prominent indie publishers. Known for his iconic runs on characters such as Nightwing, Conan, Punisher, and of course, Tim Drake Robin, Dixon brings his decades of experience in the comic book industry and a proven history of quality to The Rippaverse!
Chuck Dixon had this to say about joining The Rippaverse,
“Eric July has assigned me a 90-page graphic novel called Alphacore. It stars a team of superhero cops who patrol the skies and streets of Florespark in search of super creeps, weirdos, and villains, and boy, do they find them! It’s full of action. It’s kind of a police procedural meets a superhero epic.”
The interior artwork, by an as yet unannounced artist, for Chuck’s Alphacore book promises to be stellar as well,
“I wish I could tell you who the artist is, but Eric wants to tell you that himself. Trust me; it’s a big name. It’s a big gun. It’s someone you’ve seen before, and I’ve seen a lot of the artwork, and it is going to blow you away.”
Considering the laundry list of talented artists he’s worked with throughout his career, those are some powerful words of praise!
There you have it! The legendary comic veteran Chuck Dixon is here to help make Rippaverse comics be great! We can’t wait to have you all see more of Chuck’s Alphacore project, so stay tuned to our Twitter and all of our official social media accounts and YouTube channel, and be signed up for our newsletter to stay up to date on the latest Rippaverse news!
