This coming March sees Eric Powell, Eisner award-winning creator of The Goon, teaming up with Tim Wiesch for the all-new crime series Big Man Plans, which is described as “a brutal crime drama steeped in mystery.”
“This project was born out of drunken conversations Tim Wiesch and I had while I was a vagabond living in his basement for a month,” states Powell. “This is what happens when kids of construction workers get really drunk for a long period of time and are given a creative outlet. This book is nothing but brutality and in a weird way the most noble project I’ve done. If people don’t freak out over this thing, my entire fucking career has been a lie!”
“This is going to be dark,” adds Wiesch. “Very, very dark. What’s been amazing is working with someone who doesn’t flinch when you offer up an incredibly visceral or painful part of the story but instead wants to help push it even further. When we were coming up with the story, we were looking for a way to embody a truly marginalized version of a man without just playing with worn-out tropes and comic clichés. Someone that would never be even remotely considered tough, let alone as the violent specter of revenge and death that we were looking for. No super powers, no crazy martial arts. Just a man driven beyond his own limitations by rage.”
Big Man Plans #1 is set for release on March 4th.
