Letter 44 Vol. 4

Saviors

Book #4 of Letter 44

Major Gabriel Drum has returned to Earth. Thought long-dead, he brings news of the apocalyptic variety: only 666 people will survive the destruction of Earth, and President Stephen Blades is tasked with choosing them. Meanwhile, the Builders teleport the crew of the Clarke back outside the asteroid belt―everyone but Astra. The crew faces a tough choice―try to get home with their dwindling fuel, or use it in a last-ditch effort to save Astra?

Charles Soule was born in the Midwest but often wishes he had been born in space. He lives in Brooklyn, and has written a wide variety of titles for a variety of publishers, including others' characters (Swamp Thing, Superman/Wonder Woman, Red Lanterns (DC); Thunderbolts, She-Hulk, Inhuman (Marvel)); and his own: 27 and Curse Words (Image); Strongman (SLG) and Strange Attractors (Archaia). When not writing—which is rare—he runs a law practice and works, writes and performs as a musician. One of his biggest regrets is never personally witnessing a Space Shuttle launch.

Alberto Jiménez Alburquerque is an artist born, raised and currently living in Madrid, Spain. He has put lines in French comic-books (BD's) for almost a decade now, working for Paquet Ed. and Soleil Ed. Some of his titles are: Fugitifs de l'Ombre (Paquet), Le Dieu des Cendres (Soleil), and Elle (Soleil). He has also drawn some short stories for the American comics Skullkickers (Image), Pathfinder's Goblins (Dynamite), and Robert E. Howard's Savage Sword and Mystery Girl (Dark Horse).

What is the most unfair thing you can think of? Got it in your head? Okay, forget that because there's a worse one: There's this guy who gets paid money for coloring comic books. Right. Dan Jackson has been gainfully employed to one degree or another with the coloring of comic books for the better part of 17 years. He's done other Great Big Projects with the fine folks at Oni Press, and he's done a bunch of covers and short projects with them as well. He's a pretty versatile guy. Even writes his own Bios. Mr. Jackson lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with his scorching hot wife (see? UN-FAIR!), and two hilarious kids.
