bone tomahawk director S. Craig Zahler will bring the original graphic novel Orgasms from an ancient cosmos to Dark Horse Comics later this year. Sweet! It’s time we got a decent space erotica comic. I mean, when was the last time that… what is this? This is Organizationsdo not Orgasms? Well, what fun is that? ! OK very good. Announced in a press release, Organisms of an ancient cosmos will be written and illustrated by Zahler, who will also likely produce a soundtrack for the graphic novel, direct its film adaptation, and bake cookies to hand out at its signings.
“My first artistic interest was illustration, and after writing eight novels, recording nine albums, and directing three films, it was a pleasure to draw once again,” Zahler said in the press release. “In this graphic novel, which is my second, I explore morally complex characters, intimate human drama, large-scale world-building, and speculative science. I started working on the piece at the very beginning lockdown and I was done over a year later when I received my first vaccine. Creating “Organisms from an Ancient Cosmos” has been an incredibly rewarding experience, and I’m thrilled to have it published by Dark Horse Comics, whose books I’ve been reading since the 80s.”
Here is the synopsis of Organisms of an ancient cosmos:
A city-sized alien spacecraft materializes over the Pacific Ocean and the nations of the world jointly forcefully engage this enigmatic and incommunicable visitor. This battle results in large-scale destruction on both sides, but answers none of the questions that will haunt humanity: what are these utterly inhuman creatures? Where do they come from? Why did they choose to visit our planet? And . . . Most important. . . are more forces on the way? For bereaved billionaire Carlton Land, renowned biologist Aimee O’Donnell, and brilliant but outspoken USAAF Chief Scientist Kenneth Yamazaki, these questions must be answered in order to safeguard the future of the human race.
Organisms from an Ancient Cosmos collects the original graphic novel published in an oversized hardcover format written and illustrated by S. Craig Zahler. It will be available wherever the books are sold on October 18, 2022. It’s available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and your local comic book store and bookstore. Organisms from an ancient cosmos will cost $29.99.
