Many of you have heard me talk about “Tales of the Drive,” and today we begin our first story: YOUR DISTANT HOMELAND, by the Eisner Award-nominated cartoonist, Dylan Meconis. It’s an origin story of Nosh’s time stranded in Russia, and will be updating once a week for the next 12 weeks. You’re going to love it. Dylan is super talented, and her Nosh story is delightful.
“Tales of the Drive” will all be stand-alone stories set in the Drive universe, by some of the best artists working today. Some stories will focus on the crew, some on their backstory, some on distant parts of the empire. But all of it is just meant to be fun. More of what we all like, essentially. It’s a filling out of the universe: Letting talented artists play in this sandbox for a while, and seeing what awesome things they create.
These stories are made possible by the financial support of backers on Patreon — so I hope you’ll consider becoming one! With your help, we can have more and more artists playing in the DRIVE universe!
More than anything else, I hope you enjoy these! The world of DRIVE feels like a special place to me, and letting more artists play with these characters and these locations feels like a great thing. *I’M* excited as heck to read these stories — and I hope you will be, too!
