Do you love the content of Zuda Comics but are tired of the website and its stupid, stupid load times … even if you have the fastest computer on the market? Fear not, heroes and fans of flipping through pages. Wired reports that Zuda, like its cousins DC and Vertigo, is coming to print.
The first plucky artist to get lucky is Jeremy Love, whose magically realistic Bayou, will be released in wide format as Zuda’s first print edition in June 2009. Bayou, which tackles racism and violence in 1930s Mississippi, is as hypnotic as it is unsettling.
That will be followed in October 2009 by David Gallaher and Steve Ellis’ High Moon (reviewed here), a Civil War-themed fever dream about werewolves, which is slated to become Zuda’s sophomore crossover.
I guess this is a good time to remind readers that Dark Horse already publishes its online forays in MySpace Dark Horse Presents (Volume One is currently available on Amazon, and Volume Two is on the way). Need I remind you that this collection includes Joss Whedon’s Eisner Award-winning entry, SugarShock! (reviewed on ComixTalk here)?
