Burn­side writer Jon is back with a new project

Hor­ror comic in pipeline

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Jonathan Ged­des

Burn­side comic book writer John Lees has an­nounced de­tails of a new project.

He is set to reunite with the rest of the team be­hind the pop­u­lar comic And Then Emily Was Gone for a one-off hor­ror comic called Quilte, which will be avail­able at the Ed­in­burgh Comic Con event tak­ing place this week­end (April 2/3) at the Ed­in­burgh In­ter­na­tional Con­fer­ence Cen­tre.

The project also fea­tures artist Iain Lau­rie, col­orist Me­gan Wil­son and let­terer Colin Bell, and fo­cuses on Dr. Karla Quilte, a psy­chol­o­gist who uses her unique gifts to treat pa­tients af­flicted with re­cur­ring night­mares.

How­ever when she is tasked with help­ing trou­bled young Adam Whit­lock, her jour­ney into his mind leaves her fac­ing forces far worse than just bad dreams.

John said: “The re­sponse to Emily was sim­ply over­whelm­ing, and I’ve been ea­ger to get the gang back to­gether for some­thing new from pretty much the minute we fin­ished on that book.

“And the cre­ative team have taken things to new heights, with Iain craft­ing some of his most dis­turb­ing im­agery ever.

“I feel con­fi­dent that Emily fans will be more than happy with Quilte.

“Ed­in­burgh Comic Con felt like a nat­u­ral choice for de­but­ing the comic.

“We had an ab­so­lute blast at the show last year and we were treated very well by both the or­gan­is­ers and the pas­sion­ate comic fans in at­ten­dance.”

Af­ter its ini­tial re­lease in Ed­in­burgh this week­end, Quilte will be pub­lished by the ComixTribe com­pany world­wide later this year.
