I.C.U. had the chance to talk to Chimera about the latest book in his SOS series - SOS Volume 2 now In Demand on IndieGogo
SOS Volume 2 is now the third SOS book. For anyone unfamiliar, what is SOS?
SOS is a black comedy/action series revolving around three superhuman brothers. The brothers operate a monster hunting business in Brooklyn, New York after creatures from a dimension called the Abyss invade earth.
SOS Volume 1 had a great dark sense of humor to accompany the action. Will that same sensibility continue into Volume 2?
Very much so, though there will be tense moments of action and a surprise in this volume.
Carnage basically stayed the same, both personality and design wise. He was my first character I ever made with his design coming from a show I enjoyed as a kid was “Gargoyles”. In 2005 or so I made him a cocky jerk based off Flash from Justice League the animated series.
Can new readers jump right into volume 2 or do they need to read volume 1 to understand what's happening?
Yes, I put a prologue summarizing what the hell is going on so readers from volume 1 will not have to re-read to understand as well as getting new readers in on the book.
What does the future hold for the SOS franchise?
I plan to do 3 volumes of what I called the “Utopian Saga” of SOS. We’ll see where we are funding wise, but I would like to work on future projects with SOS ending at Volume 3.
Though Ibai Canales and I were talking about doing a spin-off about Vigilante & Carnage (similar to Onslaught but it would be in modern day not the 90’s and it wouldn’t be as dark it would be more light hearted and comedic). I wrote an outline for the first arc and I was pleased with the results.
