Notorious

DYNAMO 5: SINS OF THE FATHER is going to feature a back-up series called NOTORIOUS that will run in all five issues. It's five pages each issue, so that makes it a 25-page story in all. I've been writing short back-up stories ever since the original Noble Causes series, and I enjoy them. It's a fun writing challenge to tell a story in such a short span of pages, and in the case of Notorious, it's a serialized story which has its own unique challenges and rewards. On one hand, I don't have to wrap everything up at the end of five pages, but on the other hand, I have to have a compelling cliffhanger each chapter.
Joining me on this project are Joe Eisma (artist), Paul Little (colorist), and Charles Pritchett (letterer). Because of the small amount of pages in each chapter, I don't want to spoil too much of it, so I'm only showing one page as a teaser, but I think it's a good one.
DYNAMO 5: SINS OF THE FATHER will be on sale in June.

Jay,
You and your art teams rock. Notorious looks very cool and I'm sure I'll be just as fond of him as all of your other superhero work. The thing I really can't wait for is to see how you've flipped things by playing against type. You're good at that.

Thanks. I think Notorious has a pretty cool twist, which you'll get your first glimpse of in the first chapter. It'll be more fully explained throughout the series.

The costume design for Notorious is awesome. I like boots, cowl and chest design. All in all a great character design.
