ALL PULP NEWSSTAND-BULLDOG EDITION, MOONSTONE MONDAY!
SAVAGE BEAUTY CREATORS SET BAR HIGH FOR MOONSTONE TITLE!!!
SAVAGE BEAUTY, the upcoming jungle heroine title from Moonstone has received quite a bit of buzz lately for a variety of reasons. ALL PULP asked creators Ed Catto and Mike Bullock about their intentions, their goals for this title since it has appeal from several angles. Catto and Bullock replied with the following-
As creators, our primary objective is to tell a good story. Savage Beauty must provide good stories in every issue or else the series fails. Beyond that, we want to serve up great artwork. We want to thrill our readers. We want to help our retailer partners sell a few more copies of a comic and keep their customers engaged and returning.
But more than all that, we’ve set some ambitious goals for Savage Beauty.
First there’s a global perspective. We want to help readers know and understand, even if it’s just a little, current events in Africa. In 2010 it’s a fascinating place full of heartache and heroism. There’s barely a day that goes by when you can’t pick up the paper and read something about Africa, and shake your head in amazement. The headlines tell us all about evil men who impose their will on the good people in Uganda, Kenya, Somalia, DR Congo and the rest of the continent, but we also want to shed some limelight on the good people who call these places home as well.
Our other ambitious task is to provide exposure to some of the many wonderful organizations that are working to make these nations, and the world, a better place. These include a variety of groups who aid children, battle modern-day slavery, help villages with infrastructure issues such as drilling wells and even just “doing a good deed”. We’re not making a political statement and we’re not saying these are the only solutions. But in each issue we’ll donate one page to one such organization. Its our hope that our readership will say “That looks interesting. I should learn a little more about it.”
We find that our readers are smart folks with many interests. Many are highly analytical and have a natural curiosity. If we can light a few sparks with a simple comic book, while still entertaining readers, that’ll be a big win.
