David Walker, writer of Bitter Root, Luke Cage, Naomi and many other comics, recently announced plans to start his own publishing company, Solid Comix, and revealed the first title he plans to release.
Walker will team up with artist Brett Weldele on One Fall, a wrestling comic he plans to fund through Kickstarter. He also has a graphic novel coming out later this year called The Hated, with artist Sean Damien Hill.
Solid Comix is a small publishing company I’ve started to create and release projects near and dear to my heart – limited series and original graphic novels written and co-created by me, and drawn by a host of talented artists. I’m still working with other publishers, and have several major projects coming out over the next several years. But there are also projects that I want to do, which for a variety of reasons simply make more sense to publish myself. For those of you that don’t know, my writing career began in 1996 with the self-published ‘zine BadAzz MoFo. Not only were did BadAzz MoFo contain my first published comic book stories; it was also my introduction to the comic industry. Every great professional opportunity I’ve had sprang from the work I did as a self-publisher. And that’s why I’m getting back to my self-publishing roots with Solid Comix.David Walker
