So what say ye about the newest Terry Moore series that is supposed to start in July? I dig his art and horro comics generally, so I'm looking forward to this one!

Rachel Beck wakes on damp, soft dirt. Sitting up, she sees a foot sticking up from the ground in front of her. She is sitting on somebody. She is sitting on a shallow grave. Rolling onto her knees she claws the dirt away. It is the body of a woman much like her. The clothes are like hers. The face… it’s her. Dead.

I'm pretty stoked about this book actually, and I generally hate horror comics. Terry has never let me down before, so I expect an excellent comic series, and it'll be ongoing this time too! woo!

When Terry appeared on Panel Discussions last month, we talked about this project and decided that we would launch a Gold Exchange-like column where he does interviews and commentary every month. Should be fun!

Yeah--we started to do one for ECHO but frankly my LCS was not equipped and I was unable to get copies in a reasonable timeframe. Problem has been fixed in time for RR #1, and after a long conversation about the challenges of promoting creator-owned work I asked Terry if he would be interested in one of these and he said yeah.

Anyone who's getting to SDCC, shoot me an e-mail. I'd be willing to pay for shipping to get an early copy of Rachel Rising out to me so that I can read, review and interview ASAP.

Terry gave me a signed copy of SiP, how cool is that? I've actually never read it before, but really enjoy Echo.

Russ, I picked up a second copy of Rachel Rising, which he sold out of at the con (fantastic news). PM me your address and I'll send it along.

Having read the first issue of Rachel Rising, I have to say his storytelling is as good as his art which is rare in dual-chore types. This issue can blow by really fast, but there's a TON of subtlety to it, so take your time with it when you get it. Won't spoil it since there's such a limited release at current.

I just got to read th last night, and I am sure I'll get blasted here for this, but the first issue was completely disappointing.

Don't get me wrong, the art was as beautiful as ever, but that's it's only area of strength. While the story might be good and intriguing, there was far too little given, even for an initial offering. A dead girl, named Rachel, has risen from a shallow grave. Although she apparently has retained her mind and facilities enough to find her way home and visit some friends, she doesn't recall that she dug herself out of the shallow grave? Yeah, I know I'm nit picking here, but why did that have to take an entire issue when we're given many excessive panels of another "Katchoo" looking women standing over a drive creek bed, or of Rachel stumbling away from the grave?

On top of it all, it's a black and white comic. That's not an issue by itself, but when you combine that with a strung out story AND a $3.99 price tag, I'm a bit disappointed from the reading experience. Maybe I'm presuming too much, but for someone like Terry Moore, isn't he going to be able to have a large enough print run, especially at B&W, to bring the comic down to a more affordable price? There just wasn't enough there, in my opinion, to justify a $3.99 cover price. It needs more story for me to think of this as anything less than something to read as anything less than a trade, or borrowed from a friend or library.

It was definitely decompressed. The art was really pretty to look at and there was a lot of subtle points in those first few pages that I'm sure will come up later (if he writes it well) but the issue did feel very incomplete. Just as the character started to get interesting, it cut off at a weird spot. Unfortunately, I think it's too early to tell storywise, but that's not a great way to start off a #1 to hook people, I agree.
