Après Spencer & Cie (l’annonce récente concernant Tynion IV), Substack continuer d’attirer les gros noms.
Jonathan Hickman, who recently helped revitalize Marvel’s X-Men franchise, said he thought a lot about digital comics during the early days of the pandemic, when distribution was temporarily halted.
“I found the things you can potentially do with it to be very fascinating,” he said. “I love the idea of surprising the reader again.”
For his newsletter, Mr. Hickman is working with the artists Mike del Mundo and Mike Huddleston on a new series, “Three Worlds, Three Moons,” in which they will let fans in on the process of building a fictional universe.
“We’re treating it like a bunch of guys jamming together on a concept album, but we’re calling it a concept universe,” he said.
The group approach, which will also include contributions from the writers Ram V. and Tini Howard and others, will allow them to share the responsibility for the newsletter. “If someone is having a heavy week or a heavy month, someone else can pick up the slack,” Mr. Hickman said.
