NEW GRAPHIC NOVEL BY BRUCE McCORKINDALE AND PHIL HESTER: THE FALLING MAN
THE FALLING MAN will be dropping soon from Action Impulse Studios! This 72-page graphic novel is the creation of Bruce McCorkindale (STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE, GODZILLA: KINGDOM OF MONSTERS) and Phil Hester (WONDER WOMAN, FIREBREATHER). Bruce wrote and illustrated the book, and Phil provided the layout art. Earlier versions of the story appeared from Image Comics and Caliber Comics in the late 1990s, but this is a fresh take that features a revised script, all-new artwork, and full color for the first time.
The story deals with a painting instructor who becomes a logic professor after a traumatic life event. One day, he experiences an earthquake limited to his own home. When the ground gives way beneath him, he ends up falling into a series of surreal adventures. “I guess it’s a bit of an existential WIZARD OF OZ,” says McCorkindale. “Floyd, the main character, encounters a number of strange creatures in various worlds, but he also acquires some friends along the way. Ultimately, though, it’s up to him to figure out who is his true adversary.”
According to Phil Hester, “THE FALLING MAN is a fever dream of a book in the grand tradition of trippy comics from Winsor McCay through Jim Starlin through Moebius and beyond. I am in awe of the intensity and commitment Bruce put into bringing his singular vision to light. Reading it will not only teach you what the comics medium is capable of, but what fully exploring the human imagination means to us as a species. Also, Bruce should probably be committed.”
THE FALLING MAN will appear in a number of different formats. Comixology will have the digital version for sale on August 9th. Around the same time, a paperback version will be available on IndyPlanet. In the very near future, Omaha Bound will be publishing THE FALLING MAN OMNIBUS. This massive, 200+ page hardback edition will feature the new book, a graphite version using scans of the pencil art, earlier versions from Image and Caliber, and a plethora of extras!
