Hey everyone! As you probably know, High Level #1 is now finally in stores and on digital services. You guys are the reason I've been able to focus on this dream-come-true project, so thanks again and always for your support!
The first issue has been getting great response, now hopefully enough people will subscribe to sustain interest so DC will renew us to tell the full 12-issue story! The comic book world is tumultuous right now and DC now has AT&T corporate overlords, so who knows what will happen, but I think the early buzz you all helped create will help!
Anyway, here's some High Level stuff to check out now that everyone's read issue 1:
- I recorded a commentary track for Ben Blacker's Comics Commentary podcast. Basically, it's like a DVD director's commentary, but for comics. Read along as I talk through the issue page by page with insights, backstory, anecdotes, and more. LISTEN HERE! It's also available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google Play.
- The High Level creative team (Barnaby Bagenda, Romulo Fajardo Jr, and me) talked with Paste Magazine about the influences and inspirations behind the book, including Shadowrun, Aphex Twin, Deus Ex, Æon Flux, Year Zero, The Holy Mountain, Boards of Canada, Blade Runner, and more. Read it here.
Thanks everyone, I'll be back with more Patreon-exclusive stuff soon!
