Scott Lobdell is a PARIAH! (Kickstarter Alert)

Well, he is fan of Pariah, Missouri any way!

People don't know this, but years ago, when Rob Liefeld and I were just breaking in at the same time... we used to talk about creating a series called THE POSSE. The idea was, what would the very first American super hero team be like? Before the costumes and codenames and secret headquarters we all take for granted today..we'd get to see these characters figuring it all out for the first time.

Alas, it never happened.

So why am I bringing it up now? Because I love -- LOVE -- properties that cross genres! And that's why I love PARIAH, MISSOURI!

I met the creator/writer Adres Salazar (and his adorable son, Santiago!) at C4 in Ventura this weekend -- and the guy just blew me away with his talent, his drive and his book!

PARIAH, MISSOURI is -- as he describes -- Huck Finn meets Buffy The Vampire Slayer! Taking some of the classic elements of the "good ole' days" and "vampires" and splicing them together in one brand new world makes both of these genres original and fresh all over again!

Take a look at his Kickstarter page... and keep an eye out of Andres Salazar! He's a triple (maybe even quadruple!) threat and trust me when I say the comics industry has not heard the last of him, or PARIAH, MISSOURI!

Might have to check this out. Looks interesting and I like an old tyme historical setting. Nice looking art, detailed faces, moody washes and colors.

PS Scott I love Teen Titans!!

Looks interesting.

Not a fan of that art but it seems interesting enough.
I'll sit on this one for now.

The book Lobdell is writing ABOUT, is not a book written BY HIM. The Pariah book is written by a guy named Andres Salazar.

@battheman008: TS was just comparing this work to Lobdell's own works (in a sarcastic manner I assume) - without implying SL himself wrote it (though I can see where the confusion happens)

Have we been reading different series? Because Lobdell's Teen Titans has been complete trash.

Timestreamer was most likely being sarcastic.

Sarcasm is hard to infer on internet boards. :p

Seems it's also hard to find people staying on topic.

Hey guys, it's me Andres Salazar the creator of Pariah, Missouri. I'm popping in to say hello, answer any questions and thank Scott for writing the article. Thank you all for going to the link and checking it out. I think the video is kinda cool. Extra props for those who are backing the project. It's taken 15 months to finish vol1 so it's good to finally see something come out of it!

Posted by DocFishstick

@andresjsalazar:
