Jeff Smith joins us on "It Came Out on Wednesday, presented by comixology" episode 19 to talk about his new project, RASL, which he is self-publishing through Cartoon Books. Jeff tells us about the noir-themed sci-fi story; what it's like self-publishing in the 21st Century; and about some of his inspirations and influences.
Jeff Smith, the visionary writer and artist behind the epic fantasy Bone and Shazam: Monster Society of Evil, unveils his newest series, the stark sci-fi series, Rasl! Meet Rasl, an art thief searching for his next big score - and trying to escape his past! Where other thieves plan their heists with breathtaking precision, Rasl has an ace up his sleeve - he can travel through the light between dimensions, affording him access to museums that no ordinary thief could access! In this issue Rasl faces an assassin's bullet and stumbles across a mystery that not only threatens to expose his own illicit activities, but could also uncover one of the world's most dangerous and sought after secrets. Smith's first major independent work since the critically acclaimed and award-winning Bone will be 32 pages long.
