I am also looking forward to this. Did anybody here buy those Warrior of Plasm Schism pages that David Lapham had for sale?

I’m going to try to push this forward soon. I’ve been very patient regarding an important project in the works for it.

Here’s a list of some of the content for the upcoming DEFIANT Comics fanzine. I’m honored to have been a part of this very special project celebrating such a great comic book publisher.

DEFIANT FANZINE CONTENT
Interviews:
Jim Shooter
JayJay Jackson
David Lapham
Pauline Weiss
J.C. Vaughn
Clark Smith
J.G. Jones
Art Holcomb
Brady Darvin

Special article on the DEFIANT crossover SCHISM by Scott Braden.

Article with pictures featuring the DEFIANT Comics collection of super collector Jim Hollister, featuring the largest and most comprehensive DEFIANT collection known to exist.

Plus a comprehensive DEFIANT Comics checklist!

More featured DEFIANT content as well!

With a special cover by Luis Rivera, which is a glimpse of the possible ending to the DEFIANT crossover SCHISM, in which Jim Shooter said the bad guys would win! This beautiful cover depicts CHASM celebrating his victory over a number of fallen DEFIANT heroes.

Looking forward to this. Any idea if this is from a published issue? I don’t think it is. Image

We’re almost finished with it. We have over ten Defiant creator and former employee interviews, including most of the big names. Yes, that includes the biggest name of them all, too.

Thanks! The files are being worked on now. It’s going to be pretty massive, I think. There’s lots of content. I’ve seen it all, but haven’t really estimated a page count yet.

Of course, there are numerous DEFIANT creator and employee interviews, including an excellent one of the Big Mammal himself.

Very excited for this. Been needing an excuse for a Defiant re-read one of these days.
