Panel Syndicate, the pay-what-you-want digital publisher from Saga creator Brian K Vaughan and Marcos Martin have announced a second new series, Universe!, from the fearless mind of award-wining writer/artist Albert Monteys. Universe! joins Vaughan and Martin’s dystopian noir The Private Eye as part of the Panel Syndicate roster which fans can purchase for a price of their choosing.
Spainish comic fans may already very familiar with Albert’s brilliant and hilarious work in the satirical EL JUEVES, where he served as director and contributor until bravely stepping down after the magazine’s owners refused to publish a cover about the King of Spain. Vaughan and Martin had this to say about their new collaborator…
“We’re very proud to help introduce Albert to the rest of the world with his best work yet, an ongoing series of self-contained (but cleverly connected) sci-fi stories. Like all pay-what-you-want comics hosted by Panel Syndicate, 100% of any and all profits go directly to the creator, so we hope you’ll donate with confidence and help fund the next installment of a comic that’s completely unlike anything being published anywhere else in the universe.”
When asked about what we could look forward to in Universe!, Vaughan and Martin told us… “When Wortham Industries mild-mannered employee, Thomas Marrot is called in to Mr.Wortham’s office (dead since 3012), little does he know he’s about to experience the adventure of a lifetime… literally! Get ready for THE PAST IS NOW!”
