Ensnared by the Dark Tunnel on a seemingly endless journey through space and time, the first God Atum, adventurer and test pilot Steve-Steph Alexander and the Silver Knight turned foredoomed Barghest travel from realm to realm hoping to break a curse that will deliver them home in 215 Ink’s 36-page Freaks & Gods Giant-sized One-shot (€5.99), written by Chris Dreier with art by Giuseppe D’Elia!
Writer Chris Dreier reveals how Freaks & Gods came to be:
“Freaks & Gods is my love-letter to Marvel comics of the 1970s and ‘80s. I’m not trying to be carbon copy of them but I’m definitely inspired by the books I read as a kid. The books that made me fall in love with comics from the start.”
“When I sit down to write Freaks & Gods this is the style I naturally write. I’m not trying to emulate anything, it’s all me. Freaks & Gods is about having fun and embodying a sense of wonder. And I think FnG does that beautifully.”
“The characters of Atum and Barghest came to me in a flash. I wrote their back stories so fast that I worried I may have missed stuff as it came to me. Steve-Steph on the other hand come from my indecision on having a male or female character to round out the trio. So I found a way to have both. I honestly don’t think you’ll see characters like these anywhere else in comics.”
“I want the reader to forget their day and get lost in the universe of Freaks & Gods. I have no agenda aside from telling a good story with characters you love or hate and having a great time while doing so!”
