Black Sky: World War Squid...

Comic book artist Ben Templesmith, best known for Wormwood and 30 Days of Night, is teaming up with Halo-8 on a new "Illustrated Film" called Black Sky! According to Templesmith, an illustrated film melds the cinematic storytelling style of comics with good audio/voice acting & some animation/CGI in places...

Black Sky will also be released as a traditional comic, that will be an adaptation of the original project. No release date has been announced...

About the project:
So what is BLACK SKY? So far, all I can say is sort of Band Of Brothers...but with SQUID. ( Well, Cthulhu-ish ideas and my love of all things tentactular ) Yes, it's a war comic. Want to get all emotional and down and dirty with it. Not exactly comedy in the vein of Wormwood... It's post apocalyptic. I deals with a small group of soldiers, as the human race is reduced to relatively low tech solutions to claw back their planet, the new religion that drives them on to this goal in the face of hopelessness...and all the stuff that comes from such things. Many horrific and hopefully, some touching "tales from the front" in many ways. And of course, they'll end up being players in a major event that may define the now generations long conflict. Lots of action but with an actual point to it I hope, rather than an excuse to simply draw "cool" things.

Humans are such fragile things.

Squid, not so much.
