Image Expo 2014: Rumble Brings the Bizarre
How many genres can one comic contain? Judging from the outline, Rumble from Image Comics is going for a record. John Arcudi and James Harren have teamed up to bring you the bizarre. Described as “a scarecrow-Conan fighting in a Louis C.K. TV show directed by David Fincher,” it’s bound to be interesting. Rumble also sports a cast of odd supporting characters, many of whom aren’t even human. Even with all this, I still can’t really tell what the book is about, but I’m definitely intrigued.
“I’d been developing the ideas for Rumble for some time, but it wasn’t until James and I started talking about it that it really came together, that it all started to make sense,” said Arcudi. “That’s when the potential was realized in a way that really freakin’ excited me! You look at his work and you know he’s going to bring explosive ferocity to the big action, and all the moodiness that the weirder elements are going to require. He’s cutting loose on Rumble in ways that will surprise even his fans. It couldn’t be a better team!”
“The history of modern comics is bedazzled by great collaborations, and John Arcudi and James Harren are definitely part of that great tradition,” said Eric Stephenson, Publisher at Image Comics. “I’ve admire both their work for a long time now, and I cannot tell you how excited I am to have them here at Image. Forget everything you’ve seen from them before: Rumble sets a new standard for this awesome creative team!”
Rumble will debut in December 2014.
