Image mogul Eric Stephenson announced two new titles by Brian Wood at the Image Expo today. First up is Starve, with Danijel Zezelj and Dave Stewart, about celebrity chefs in the future.
The other is Black Road, a comic about vikings.
We'll have more info after other sites post their EXCLUSIVE interviews.
UPDATE: Here's the official info on both books from Image, as well as the cover for Black Road:
Brian Wood (Star Wars, DMZ, The Massive), Danijel Zezelj (Northlanders, Loveless), & Dave Stewart (THE WALKING DEAD, Star Wars) are cooking up a story set in the near future, where celebrity chefs are idolized and reality television has taken a decidedly unsavory turn, in STARVE.
STARVE is set in a world where chefs are practically royalty, and access to them is the ultimate status symbol. Chef Gavin Cruikshank, back from self-imposed exile, finds his little foodie television program "Starve" transformed into a gonzo arena sport where chefs slice and dice rare and endangered species for their super-rich patrons. Since his personal life is as much a shambles as his professional career, Chef Cruikshank works to repair his relationship with his grown daughter while dismantling the monstrosity that Starve has become.
BLACK ROAD marks writer Brian Wood's (Star Wars, DMZ, Northlanders) first return to the Viking genre since the acclaimed Northlanders series and his and Garry Brown's (The Massive, Iron Patriot) first project together since The Massive. Lauren Affe provides colors.
Set in Viking Age Norway, BLACK ROAD follows Magnus The Black, a fixer for the Christian Church who loses a Roman official to bandits on the infamous Black Road. Heading north to fix the problem and complete his contract, he uncovers a secret, something so big it threatens to change the balance of power in all of Europe. But with one foot in the world of the pagans and the other in that of the Church, who can trust where his loyalties lie?
