Author D.J. Kirkbride (Amelia Cole) had a chance to explore subversive cosmic humor in the pages of The Bigger Bang from IDW in 2014. Kirkbride alongside Vassilis Gogtzilas (The Adventures of Augusta Wind) has gotten the chance to explore that same brand of absurdist cosmic comic book humor once again in 2016 with The Biggest Bang, the second entry to the original mini-series from 2014– The Beat had a chance to sit down with author and talk about the sequel aptly titled The Biggest Bang. We even have exclusive pages from issue #1 down at the the bottom– you’re not going to want to miss this one:
Warning: the first question contains SPOILERS for the first series: THE BIGGER BANG.
For those not in the know, can you lightly recap the events of THE BIGGER BANG and talk about how the sequel series came to be?
Look, I love these weirdo books and truly hope a healthy number of comic readers are willing to take a chance and read what Vass, Frank, Justin, and I have created. This is the type of madness that you can only find in comics!
Here’s a batch of exclusive issue one pages straight from IDW for The Biggest Bang #1 shipping May 18;
