Kevin J. Anderson and Steven L. Sears have announced their major new science fiction graphic novel with Gestalt Comics, STALAG-X, a gritty story of human soldiers trying to survive in an alien concentration camp.

The graphic novel series will be illustrated by Mike Ratera, with the cover artist yet to be announced.

“Steven and I had the idea developed for STALAG-X, but last year when I was one of the guests of Supanova touring Australia, I got to know Wolfgang Bylsma, publisher of Gestalt Comics …  As I looked at the Gestalt publications, I grew more and more excited: these were high-quality books, not cookie-cutter comics, and even eclectic.  Gestalt seemed like it might be a good home for STALAG-X.” – Kevin J. Anderson.

NY Times best selling author Anderson  is the author of more than ninety novels, 41 of which have appeared on national or international bestseller lists, including novel, Dune: House Atreides, and his STAR WARS “Jedi Academy” books which were the three top-selling SF novels of 1994.

Sears is well-known for his work in both film and television – his credits include some of the most iconic television series, such as ‘Superboy’, ‘The A-Team’, ‘Walker, Texas Ranger’, ‘Riptide’, ‘Swamp Thing’ and ‘Xena, Warrior Princess’ among many others.

“We don’t have a release date yet for the first issue, probably sometime in late fall.  I’ll keep you up to date, and I hope you’ll follow the series.  STALAG-X is one of our best ideas.” – Kevin J. Anderson.
