When one talks about Alan Moore now and days, it is almost impossible not to talk about the whole “Watchmen” saga that’s come to define. However, it would be a great disservice to Moore’s career if we didn’t recognize the roles he played beyond the writer of that landmark series, including the role of imprint head with his run on America’s Best Comics.  Despite only being around for barely 4 years, ABC would leave its mark on the medium by serving as both a home for “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” and for publishing such acclaimed works like “Top 10”, “Promethia” and “Tom Strong.” Speaking of the latter, Outhouse Entertainment has learned from artist Chris Sprouse that a new Tom Strong story subtitled “The Planet of Peril” is on the way.
 
Unfortunately, details for this latest Tom Strong adventure are at premium, but we have learned that writer Peter Hogan and Inker Karl Story will be joining Sprouse in creating this book. In addition, it was also revealed that Chris Sprouse will be working on a fringe mainstream DC title, lending his pencils to a 30 Page Batman digital comic that’ll be written by David Tischman. Finally, Sprouse will also be lending his art for DC’s licensing efforts that could show up on a myriad of products.
 
As always, stay tuned to Outhouse Entertainment for more news involving “Tom Strong and the Planet of Peril”, Chris Sprouse and everything else that satisfies your geeky hobby appetite.
 
Now, I leave you with some art pieces straight from the blog of the artist.
