What I could do is what everyone wants me to do, and to ignore the fact the popular market is going down the toilet. I could do something really obscure. I'd get critical appeal and sell 1,500 copies and incidentally go broke and earn the respect of Gary Groth, and the comics industry would completely fall to pieces. Even if it all happens, and comics does fall to pieces, at least I did my best. -- Alan Moore, on doing the ABC line instead of more indy fare

My first contribution to "Beyond the Big Two Week" is courtesy of Epic Comics in 1986. Now this is sort of a cheat, since that was a Marvel imprint, but it's notable that it was it's creator-owned imprint. The likes of Jim Starlin's Dreadstar and Christy marx's "Sisterhood of Steel" were part of the Epic line as were Alien Legion and Six from Sirius. Sometimes they used Marvel characters (Most notably in Frank Miller and Bill Sienkiewicz's Elektra: Assassin series and Stan Lee and Moebius' Silver Surfer: Parable.

This is none of those, this is a six issue miniseries (created, written and drawn by one chap, Alan Weiss) featuring a new character, a new approach to technology and more suggestive subtext than anything you can probably imagine... no strike that, this is scans_daily... more suggestive subtext than most non-s_d reders can probably imagine.
