The sequence of these stories changed quite a bit during the planning stages, as I ordered and re-ordered them, trying to divine the best mix of genre and art style, the best narrative flow. But from the beginning, I knew I wanted to start with Another Life. One of my core beliefs as a writer is that fun, exciting action stories can and should be driven by a strong character arc and an emotional core. And that’s definitely what I was aiming for in this story.

Artist Ben Dewey wonderfully captured both the character moments and the sense of fun. This story is packed with crazy visuals, and Ben ran with it. He crafted awesome designs for even minor background characters, and he made the main characters’ personalities shine through, even without words. His work makes this insane world feel deep and real.
