Andre the Giant: Closer to Heaven Writer Joins Ongoing Catalyst Prime Title with Issue No. 10
ST. LOUIS, MO—Incidentals, created by writer/producer Ramón Govea and co-developed by Lion Forge co-founders David Steward II and Carl Reed, has been a cornerstone title in comics’ most diverse and inclusive universe since 2017.
Now, as the series moves into its third volume, Brandon Easton (Andre the Giant: Closer to Heaven) will co-write the title’s most ambitious storyline, in a first-person look at the culture of celebrity and superheroes. Two Hollywood veterans will tackle issues that have long terrorized Tinseltown behind the scenes, pitting heroes against their greatest fears in an arresting fictional account of the uglier side of filmdom.
“It has been an honor and pleasure to join the Catalyst Prime Universe and work alongside my friend and fellow creator Ramón Govea,” says writer Brandon Easton. “With our combined experiences in the tumultuous minefield of the entertainment industry as a prologue, we’re going to bring a unique sensibility to the Incidentals series. We want to explore the true costs of fame and fortune in the Hollywood dream factory, and using a superhero team as a microscope is a fun and interesting challenge.”
“We wanted to pick up a few months after the events of Issue 9 and really explore some of the unfortunate, darker truths about the entertainment industry,” says series creator and co-writer Ramón Govea. “But we’re digging into the things that haunt the Incidentals, so the team’s dynamic and emotional constitution will really be tested.”
The Incidentals are making their mark in Hollywood! Marko is managing the group as the initial offering from Luminous Talent Agency—Bo Vincent Chen’s latest entrepreneurial effort to recruit superhero talent. But rather than enjoy their new celebrity status, the Incidentals still struggle with their lack of communication, which threatens to unravel the team. Meanwhile, a mysterious new power player enters the fold with an eye to recruit our heroes . . . but can the Incidentals really trust him, or is something more sinister in motion? While the City of Angels may be caked in a layer of glitz and glam, the team finds themselves faced with what lurks just beneath the town’s shiny exterior.
Incidentals #10 will hit comic shops on July 25.
