PREVIEW: That Time Rebel Studios Did a Con Book the Night Before All Cons Were Cancelled

46Preview Art from Quotes & Visions: Underground (Rebel Studios, 2020)

Since concluding Faust: Love of the Damned in 2013, the Rebel Studios creators never stopped working together on characters and stories; collaborations we’ve played with include:

  • Marquis De Sade vs. monsters both human and inhuman
  • A modern gothic centered around a creepy cult (Correction, we actually have two modern gothics centered around creepy cults)
  • A treatment for a film about a revenge killer on a locked down military base
  • A retro-futuro cosmic sex dream ala Metal Hurlant/Heavy Metal
  • A Savage Tales inspired alternative GN with Faust, Claire, M, Blythe, The Wrath and other Rebel Studios characters
  • The pilot chapter of an Elemental action series
  • A GN for all ages about a young law student who wakes up one day as Brooklyn the Barbarian™
  • Even a plot for an improvisational web cam crime drama

You haven’t seen these stories?

No. Not yet.

Text Excerpt from Quotes & Visions: Underground (Rebel Studios, 2020)

But with your continued support – thank you – you may still see them some day. What some of you did see, if you checked out Absolute Underground, a West Coast magazine celebrating all things punk, hardcore and metal, is Phi Underground, a series of splash page micro dramas.

Some began with Vigil’s Vision, others with Quinn’s Quote, but we are both in there, playing both with and against each other, harmony and creative friction. As you can see in the sneak peeks here…

Text Excerpt from Quotes & Visions: Underground (Rebel Studios, 2020)

Most underground pieces evoke a mythological feel. Many present as transgressive. Death and dreams dominate, but amidst that, we find surprising life, passion, even a strange humor.

So when it came time to prepare a sketch book for comic convention season, we thought maybe we should collect the underground one pagers, throwing in some traditional pinups as well, in both black and white and color.

And now that the book has gone to press…  the conventions are all postponing or  cancelling.  In the time of Covid 19, we work together to stay just a little more distant, for our own survival.

In the coming weeks, we hope you all stay safe and healthy. Don’t panic, but stay smart. Be good to each other. And we will find another way to get this book to the people who want it, don’t worry…  the Underground is both persistent and resilient.
