INSUFFERABLE. The creator-owned superhero comic I do with co-creator/artist Peter Krause. The end begins today, and I promise this–you won’t see what’s coming.
When we first launched Thrillbent, we put our best foot forward with our first ongoing weekly series, INSUFFERABLE, which answered the musical question “What if a crimefighting sidekick grew up to become an egomaniacal celebrity asshole?” INSUFFERABLE introduced the world to the protectors of the city of St. Barrington: Nocturnus and his grown son, Galahad, who detest one another but who are manipulated into one last team-up to solve the mystery of just exactly what happened to their wife/mother all those years ago.
Right from the start, Pete and I had the time of our lives producing that initial arc, which very deliberately steps back and forth between heartbreaking drama and dark comedy. INSUFFERABLE became Thrillbent’s signature series, and not long after it wrapped, we brought you the second story arc, INSUFFERABLE: ON THE ROAD.
Today, Team Insufferable–Waid and Krause, along with our invaluable partners Nolan Woodard (colorist) and Troy Peteri (letterer)–launches the final arc, INSUFFERABLE: HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE, and we’re really extra-proud of this one. We’re bringing the Nocturnus and Galahad tale to an end, and we’ve very much surprised even ourselves by the twists and turns their final adventure has taken.
Please join us every Wednesday as we tell what has become a poignantly personal story of a father and his son. I know it’s hit some strong emotional chords with Pete and myself. It’s got action, mystery, and tension–but above all, it has heart. Come see for yourself.
