Welcome to Solid Comix.
For those of you that don’t know me, my name is David F. Walker. As a comic book writer I’ve been fortunate enough to work for such incredible publishers as DC, Marvel, Image, Dark Horse, Boom, Dynamite, and Lion Forge. I’ve also had the opportunity to write some of my favorite characters and work with some of the best artists in the business. Now it is time to embark on a new adventure…Solid Comix.
Solid Comix is a small publishing company I’ve started to create and release projects near and dear to my heart – limited series and original graphic novels written and co-created by me, and drawn by a host of talented artists (NOTE: I will only be publishing my work for the foreseeable future). I’m still working with other publishers, and have several major projects coming out over the next several years. But there are also projects that I want to do, which for a variety of reasons simply make more sense to publish myself. For those of you that don’t know, my writing career began in 1996 with the self-published ‘zine BadAzz MoFo. Not only were did BadAzz MoFo contain my first published comic book stories; it was also my introduction to the comic industry. Every great professional opportunity I’ve had sprang from the work I did as a self-publisher. And that’s why I’m getting back to my self-publishing roots with Solid Comix.
The first project from Solid Comix will be ONE FALL, a five-issue mini-series co-created by myself and artist Brett Weldele (with some help and input from writer Ted Pirro). The first issue of ONE FALL will come out in Spring 2019. Later in 2019, Solid Comix will release the original graphic novel THE HATED, by myself and artist Sean Damien Hill. Everything that I publish through Solid Comix will be financed in part through crowd-funding platforms like Kickstarter. Thanks for you interest and your support.
