Monday‘s Page! Project: New Man # 4 is ending. Wednesday we will have the color back cover and that will wrap up the original series plus a few new pages of material that was added to fill out page quotas and finish the storyline.
On this inside back cover we usually preview the next issue’s cover, and even though we’ve sported a nice mock up of a cover, that won’t actually be the next issues cover because we don’t know what it will be OR exactly when it will be out. That’s right Project: New Man will be on hiatus for a little while while we gear up for the new stories. What will the new stories be? Well, that’s still up in the air somewhat. We tied up all the major plots for The Haunted Man story line but there are still lots of unresolved sub plots. Like what happens to Dr. Fawn Wilfred as she recovers from the assault she suffered at the hands of Dr. Hubert Rolph a.k.a Ebenezer Baal? And what of the blossoming romance between Dave and Fawn? What exactly is E.D.G.E. and how does it really figure into Project: New Man? Is E.D.G.E. completely corrupt? Now that New Man knows he is actually a Humant and his evolution had little or nothing to do with the Experiment how does that effect the Project research? What about the Thunder Hawks and Bearcat? What has happened to Max? See, there’s plenty of story material yet to be tapped. Since the original series began back in the early 1990’s will we stay in that time line or will we pick up nearly 20 years later? Hmmmm….Interesting?
One thing we will be doing in the weeks to come is making corrections on the previous 4 issues and getting them ready to print as regular comics as well as a trade paperback. So we’ll be keeping you updated on that as it progresses.
Once we restart the series with # 5, we do want to take it to full color and make more use of the new technology we have for enhancing the art.
So what do you think? How should we proceed with the new series once we resume? Should we resume at all? Should the series stop with number 4? Let us know your thoughts.
We’ll have a new page of Project: New Man #4 Wednesday!
