New Dave Dorman Comic Book Cover Art Project: STALAG-X

In Uncategorized on July 30, 2012 at 3:26 pm

Dear Friends,

I am pleased to announce I’ll be doing the comic book cover art for a new sci-fi graphic novel project for Australia’s largest comic book publisher, Gestalt Comics, in partnership with two writers: NY Times Bestselling Author Kevin J. Anderson and Xena: Warrior Princess co-producer and scriptwriter Steven L. Sears. I’ve done a lot of cover art over the years for books Kevin has written, including the Young Jedi Knight series and his book Dogged Persistence. Steven and I are both former Floridians and military brats.

Here is how Kevin J. Anderson describes the STALAG-X story:

“STALAG-X is the gritty story of human soldiers trying to survive in an alien concentration camp, and one mysterious prisoner who calls himself “Joe Human.” He cannot allow the vicious aliens to win . . . but because of his own dark past, he doesn’t dare allow himself to be rescued either.”

The release date hasn’t been announced yet, but we are looking at late Fall 2012 for the first issue. I will keep you posted here, and for the writing side, follow http://kjablog.com for Kevin J. Anderson’s posts. 

As always, thanks for reading!

Dave.

WINDS OF DUNE is 14th Consecutive Bestselling Novel in Sci-Fi Series

A Winning Streak for THE WINDS OF DUNE
14th Consecutive Bestselling Novel in Sci-Fi Series

In 1976, Frank Herbert’s CHILDREN OF DUNE became the very first genre science fiction novel to hit the New York Times bestseller list. The new novel, THE WINDS OF DUNE (Tor, August), by Herbert’s son Brian and coauthor Kevin J. Anderson, debuts this week on the list, marking the 14th consecutive DUNE novel to be a New York Times bestseller — a winning streak unmatched by any other original science fiction series.

THE WINDS OF DUNE is Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson’s direct sequel to the elder Herbert’s classic DUNE MESSIAH, telling the story of how Lady Jessica, Duncan Idaho, and other familiar characters struggle to hold a turbulent empire together after the disappearance of Paul Muad-Dib.

Frank Herbert published the original novel DUNE in 1965, which won both the Hugo and Nebula Awards, the highest accolades in the genre. It is believed to be the best-selling original SF novel of all time and is widely considered to be science fiction’s equivalent to The Lord of the Rings in its importance. Publishers Weekly said of THE WINDS OF DUNE “Fans of the original Dune series will love seeing familiar characters, and the narrative voice smoothly evokes the elder Herbert’s style.” WINDS is the pair’s 10th novel in the series.

Dream Theater, Saga, Kansas Members Form Supergroup Roswell Six for Music CD Based on Fantasy Novel by Bestselling Author

Kevin J. Anderson and author wife Rebecca Moesta co-write the lyrics and deem this CD their “dream project”

For Immediate Release: Colorado Springs, CO – May 28, 2009 – A fantasy fiction publishing first: It took NY Times and USA Today best-selling author and innovator Kevin J. Anderson to launch the first-of-its-kind music CD with lyrics written by Anderson and his author wife Rebecca Moesta, based on his new novel The Edge of the World from his Terra Incognita series (Orbit Books). Anderson, one of the fiction world’s most popular novelists who just launched the Superman-Batman thriller Enemies and Allies (HarperCollins) two weeks ago, is releasing music CD Terra Incognita: Beyond the Horizon (ProgRock Records) by Roswell Six, which includes performances from world-renowned musicians. Said Anderson, “My work has always been heavily influenced by music, but Terra Incognita truly takes this into new territory.”

The new CD includes music by keyboardist/composer Erik Norlander (Rocket Scientists), James LaBrie (Dream Theater), Michael Sadler (ex-Saga), John Payne (Asia featuring John Payne) and Lana Lane (the “Queen of Symphonic Rock”). Additional artists performing on the CD are members of the groups Kansas, Shadow Gallery, IQ, Ghost Circus, Under the Sun, and Prymary. Together, this creative team has sold more than 45 million copies of their own works worldwide.

Said ProgRock Records Executive Producer Shawn Gordon, “This project checked off about half of the items on my bucket list. Imagine what kind of fantasy world I’m in when I get to work with one of my favorite authors, favorite vocalists, and favorite musicians. Hearing the story come to life is really an amazing experience. There’ll be a lot of new crossover fans from this project.”

The sample tracks on the Roswell Six MySpace page (http://www.myspace.com/roswellsix) have had more than 40,000 plays in two months. Anderson, renowned for his marketing genius, had an ambitious widget created for distribution across the Web, which contains animated cover art, a summary of the book, three sample chapters, a video interview with Anderson and two sample tracks from the CD. (See the widget at www.wordfire.com).
