Soule + Sliney + Rosenberg will create ‘Hell to Pay’ in real time on Twitch

The new Image Comics series will launch next year — and will be created live on Twitch.

Charles Soule, Will Sliney and Rachelle Rosenberg have a new comic coming out from Image Comics called Hell to Pay, but it’s not quite done — and that’s where the fun begins. The creative team will give fans a direct view into their process by live-creating the comic on Twitch.

Both Sliney and Rosenberg plan to livestream their work on the platform. Soule plans to join them “to workshop design and story elements” in real time.

Hell to Pay is a combination of a lot of things I love and one thing I don’t: supernatural adventure, treasure hunt stories, and the harsh consequences of late-stage capitalism! I think there’s a lot to say about money—everyone on earth is affected by cash in one way or another. Looking at it through a demonic lens is a fun way to play with the concept,” said Soule. “I’m also so excited to try something new by creating the book live on Twitch. Will and Rachelle are fantastic—this will be like being in a band, performing live every night as we come up with new ideas and implement them right then and there. I can’t wait—especially to do it in front of an audience. Scary? Maybe a little—but I do love a challenge.”

The Mockingbird agenda: Creative team reunites for ‘Man-Eaters’ from Image Comics

Chelsea Cain, Kate Niemczyk, Rachelle Rosenberg and Joe Caramagna re-team for a new series where ‘a mutation in Toxoplasmosis causes menstruating women to turn into ferocious killer wildcats.’

After enduring terrible treatment on Twitter because of the cover to her final issue of Mockingbird, writer Chelsea Cain returns to comics with Man-Eaters — and she’s bringing the Mockingbird creative team with her.

Cain is joined by her previous collaborators, artist Kate Niemczyk, colorist Rachelle Rosenberg and letterer Joe Caramagna, as well as Lia Miternique and Stella Greenvoss, for the new series.

“It’s my first comic since Mockingbird, so I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have some Twitter-related PTSD,” Cain wrote on her website. “But I also have much better privacy settings and a hair trigger. I know the story goes that I left comics after Mockingbird, that I was driven away, dropped off at the state line by some trolls in a pick-up truck. I didn’t leave comics. Comics left me. I’ve been right here. I’ve been busy, working on this series, developing the exact story I wanted to tell, finding the perfect home for it – Image Comics – and then putting together my dream team. (If you’ve ever seen the TV show, The A-Team, it was EXACTLY like that.) Man-Eaters combines a lot of my interests: cats, murder, feminism, propaganda, dad with beards, detectives, people who are good at their jobs, sarcastic t-shirts, etc.”
