Tim Gibson’s Moth City launches through the Thrillbent portal this Tuesday 14th May. Initially launched through mothcity.com and recently made available on Comixology, Moth City is a noir murder mystery set amongst civil war in the 1930’s:
The Nationalist Army of China comes to Moth City to purchase a mysterious new weapon to win 1930s civil war, and instead steps into shadowy intrigues as a daughter tries to escape her father, a scientist tries to avoid his death sentence and a dictator tries to control a world falling apart.
Tim’s creative pedigree comes from a background illustrating worlds, characters and monsters for Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson, with film credits including Tintin, District 9 and Avatar to his name.
Tim on being invited to take part in John Rogers and Mark Waid’s webcomic initiative:
“I am extremely excited to be involved with Thrillbent.com and very lucky to have been passed along to Mark Waid and John Rogers by some very supportive parties. Moth City has been greatly influenced by Thrillbent’s work, and other digital comic pioneers like Alex De Campi and Dan Goldman, so this opportunity is akin to buying a Nirvana cassette, starting your own band and then being invited to tour with them.
In an attempt to ‘out-enthuse’ Mark Waid all I can say is holy-s&!t, am I grateful for all the support Moth City has received from it’s existing readers, and the comics community as a whole, and I can’t wait to get my noir-crime-horror-genre-mash in front of more readers.”
