My name is Michael Colbert and I am a writer of comics. As with most
of you, comics have been a lifelong passion of mine; the limitless
potential of words and pictures to tell a story has always been
fascinating to me. So please allow me to introduce you to Crazy Mary,
my creation and contribution to the world of comics.
Crazy Mary is a
freelancer, a cybernetically enhanced bad-ass for
hire, living and working the mean streets of tomorrow's New York. What
sets Mary apart from the average hired gun are her visions. Mary sees
an eerie haunting world that exists over top the one we know. She also
has a trinity of spirit guides who speak to her, protect her, and are
ultimately guiding her toward...well, it's best not to tell yet.
Mary and her team
do all the dirty jobs -- bounty hunting, bodyguards, and
even the occasional suicide run. Also, they may possibly be unwitting
soldiers in an invisible war that's heavy on the Lovecraft overtones. Or Mary could just be insane and dragging her friends along for the ride.
If you liked “The Invisibles” you’ll like Crazy Mary.
If you love William Gibson you’ll love Crazy Mary.
Or if you just dig compelling female characters that kick-ass you’ll like Crazy Mary.
The graphic novel titled …By factory smoke and acetylene light is
the first installment of the Mary universe. It features stories
illustrated by J.K. Woodward, best know for his work on X Men and
Fallen Angel, as well as pages drawn by Ryan Sargent and William
Blankenship. Also featured is the 35 five page story, "Waiting to Explode" which is co-written by Josh Finney, creator of Titanium Rain and Utopiates.
