What’s a 10-Letter Word for a Villain Worthy of his Own Book?
Crosswords a new one-shot written by Jason Ciaramella (The Cape, Thumbprints) with art by Joe Mulvey (SCAM), will focus on the power-drill wielding SCAM antagonist, and give the villain a chance to continue his dirty work, this time in Europe.
“Joe Mulvey is without a doubt the greatest Italian-American artist working in comics today,” said Ciaramella. “He’s all “Meatballs!” and I’m like “I know, right?!” Then we kiss cheeks in the way of the old country. I’d never pass up a chance to work with him. Ever.”
“All of my nice comments about Jason went out the window when he called me Italian,” muttered Mulvey. “Right out the effin’ window.”
Creative differences aside, both creators are excited to spend more time with the scene-stealing SCAM villain. The events of the CROSSWORDS one-shot will pick up from where both the SCAM mini-series and the upcoming SCAMthology end off.
“Mulvey told me he and Ciaramella wanted to do crosswords together,” recalled ComixTribe publisher Tyler James. “I thought, well, isn’t that sweet, and told those two love-birds to have fun with it. I thought they meant the New York Times’.”
Crosswords will be a one-shot releasing in May 2014. The original SCAM mini-series concludes with SCAM #4 Finale next month, followed by SCAMthology in early 2014.
