ImagineFX - - Imagine Nation News -

Af­ter start­ing his ca­reer at DC Comics, AJ Lieber­man wanted to cre­ate his own comics and books. On the way to form­ing Dop­pel­gänger Pub­lish­ing, he met artist Dar­ren Rawl­ings to vi­su­alise his ideas.

It was while work­ing on their first graphic novel for Scholas­tic, The Sil­ver Six, that AJ and Dar­ren re­alised they could pub­lish their own books. “Be­ing your own boss and cre­at­ing the things you want to cre­ate is in the heart of ev­ery artist,” Dar­ren says. “It takes hard work, ded­i­ca­tion and an abil­ity to stay cre­ative when you feel noth­ing’s left. The trick is press­ing for­ward through those cre­ative strug­gles and stick­ing to your vi­sion.”

Deep Soul is the first book to be re­leased by Dop­pel­gänger. The story, which was drafted by Dar­ren and com­pleted by Tom Rhodes, fol­lows a man strug­gling to re­vive his co­matose wife. Their sec­ond book, Grave­yard Wars, is al­ready un­der­way.

Dop­pel­gänger fi­nally gives Dar­ren and AJ the cre­ative con­trol they’ve al­ways craved in their work. Deep Soul is Dop­pel­gänger’s first graphic novel.

The Sil­ver Six was made by Dar­ren and

AJ for Scholas­tic.
