We’re pleased to note that Paul Allor, Comics Experience alum and staffer, has TWO books solicited by IDW in the November Diamond Previews catalog. Both books will be shipping to comic shops in January of 2013.
First up is G.I. Joe #12, written by Paul, with art by Alex Cal, S L Gallant, Atilio Rojo, and Nicole Virella, along with a cover by Steve Kurth.
According to the solicitation, this begins a story on the secret history of Cobra. “In the aftermath of COBRA’s New York attack, Baroness leads a new up-and-coming officer called Siren around the world–and into the past! Siren uncovers the secrets of the previous Cobra Commanders–and comes face-to-face with the ruthless current one!”
Then, check out Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Utrom Empire #1, the first of a 3-issue mini-series, with art and covers by Andy Kuhn, and a special variant cover by Kevin Eastman.
The solicitation on this one reads: “Intrigue and betrayal abound on Burnow Island! This mini-series takes us to the Technodrome where Krang’s plans to destroy the Earth are ramping up. Little does he know that Baxter Stockman plans to harness its power for himself! As the two villains scheme, one imprisoned robot holds the key to success–Fugitoid! Will he be able to reach out to the Turtles in time? All this plus the long awaited story of the alien Utrom race!”
In the turtles universe, Paul has previously written the TMNT Micro: Fugitoid and the TMNT Micro: Shredder for IDW. Paul recently launched the Monkeybrain series, Strange Nation. He has also recently written a story in the Pathfinder: Goblins mini-series from Dynamite. Paul has produced creator-owned work as well, such as Clockwork, Volume One and Orc Girl.
In addition to his writing work, Paul has served as the editor on several titles, including the Rex, Zombie Killer mini-series from Big Dog Ink, Girls Night Out and the currently-ongoing Sheltered, from Image Comics. Additionally, he is a graduate of writing, art and lettering classes through Comics Experience.
Congratulations to Paul on his new mini-series, as well as his work in the on-going GI Joe title!
