RICHES + HOLDER talk R.P.M. @ Newsarama

Imagine you’re a courier of important and exotic goods. I’m not talking rare animals here, I’m talking top secret merchandise, illegal goods, and generally things the public wouldn’t know about unless WikiLeaks told you. You’ve been hired to deliver a package from Boston to Miami – 1500 miles down the Atlantic Coast – and the only thing standing in your way is the government, private mercenaries and some street gangs. A fast car can help, but you might need something more. It might help that you’re a direct descendant of Paul Revere.

That’s the story in the comic book series R.P.M., which launched as a four-issue series in November. R.P.M. comes from the mind of popular pro wrestler – and frequent comic convention guest – Mic Foley and his writing partner Shane Riches. In a Newsarama interview earlier in the year with Foley, he expressed a long-time desire to write comics – going all the way back to a visit to John Buscema’s house as a child. With R.P.M. #1 on the stands and two in the wings, we turned to co-writer Shane Riches and artist Jose Holder to find out more about this fast-paced series.

Newsarama: How did the ideas that became R.P.M. develop between you and Mick, Shane?

Shane Riches: We batted around several concepts that would appeal to fans of Mick’s hardcore reputation and unique sense of a humor. Ultimately we pursued a story with a lead, Revere Windsor, who is a courier for hire. Mick’s a huge history buff and we both love Boston so we made him a descendant of Paul Revere on his own action-filled midnight ride.

Nrama: How would you describe the lead character, Revere Windsor?

Riches: Revere is one part Die Hard’s John McClane as an individual against extraordinary odds and one part Green Lantern or Daredevil in the sense of his fearless attitude. He carries around a lot of baggage that he’d rather just ignore and drive past -- this tremendous historical legacy to live up to but he’s sort of lost his way when we meet him. His special ability, hyper-kinetic depth perception, is a blessing and a curse. It allows him to see and react to the world faster than anyone, but he gets caught up in the risk and playing the odds with little care of the consequences. His journey forces him to see the world around him again.

Jose Holder: As far as the whole Paul Revere mythos goes, I have to admit as a Canuck that I had some American history to catch up on. Once I was able to absorb the incredible back-story to Revere’s predecessor it became an easier task to conceptualize the character. Our Revere is a hard-edged, adrenaline junky with a mysterious past. Courageous under fire, and armed with a hellish wit and brawny exterior, he’s perfectly poised to lead a life danger and intrigue. There was an intensely collaborative process defining Revere’s look. His visual transformation ran the gamut from street vagabond to high tech adventurer. In the end we opted for a simpler streamlined persona for the book.

MAGUS: After being sealed away for thousands of years, humankind's innate ability to use magic is accidentally released. Forces of good, evil - and somewhere in between - race against each other to find the reason for the outbreak. Some want to defend its use and save a world thrown into chaos, others aim for less honorable goals. Ben and Darius, both approaching their 18th birthdays, have strong magic welling up inside of them, much stronger than the average person. They rely on each other and a new group of powerful friends, as they fight to carve out a place for themselves in this strange era.

Rebekah Isaacs has had numerous penciling and inking credits with Marvel and DC Comics, including Ms. Marvel and DV8: Gods and Monsters. Her first break into the comics industry came in 2007 with Hack/Slash and Drafted from Devil's Due. She is currently working on Magus and various things she's not allowed to talk about yet at Marvel.

Jon Price worked across the board in the entertainment industry in television, film, and video games before discovering a calling for comics writing. Magus is his first published work. When he's not writing you might find him playing guitar in NYC nerd rock outfit H2AWESOME. Jon and Rebekah live in Queens with their cat, Fantastic Donut.

DV8 artist 'Brings Magic Back'

Earning major points for her superlative work on WildStorm's in-progress DV8: Gods and Monsters miniseries with Brian Wood, Rebekeh Isaacs has already begun drawing her followup project that's similarly close to the artist's heart. Magus is a new five-issue series from 12-Gauge that deals with the return of full-on magic to our modern world, where everyone suddenly finds themselves a powerful sorcerer. Written by Jon Price & David Norton and featuring an inaugural cover by DVD's Fiona Staples, Magus is listed in this month's Diamond Previews catalogue for a December 12 release.

ComicsAlliance spoke briefly with the Magus creative team about the contemporary fantasy book, described as a grown-up cross between Harry Potter and Heroes (Season One!), and checked out some of Isaacs' great artwork from the miniseries.

MAGUS #1 (of 5)

Where were you when magic came back? After being sealed away for thousands of years by a group of powerful men and women, humankind's innate ability to use magic is accidentally released- leaving everyone on the planet able to perform magic! In suburban Massachusetts, Ben and Darius find themselves thrust into the middle of a changing, turbulent new world, and intricately linked to what's happening. Joined by a small group of new friends, these powerful young men must unravel the secret history of magic, while governments across the globe desperately fight to return things to the way they were before. Don't miss the first exciting installment of this epic adventure, featuring the stunning art of Rebekah Isaacs (Brian Wood's DV8)!

ComicsAlliance: Rebekah, you've earned loads of praise for your work on DV8. What informed your decision to make Magus the followup? What's your connection to the material?

REBEKAH ISAACS: Well, I was actually working on Magus little-by-little the whole time I was drawing DV8. I think we'd been working on the pitch before I got that gig and [Ms. Marvel: Dark Reign], but back then we were three people with very few comics credits between us, and me getting that first mainstream work definitely gave us the impetus to push it out there and get it seen. My connection to the project is about as personal as you can get -- Jon is my boyfriend, and, essentially, our creative collaborations from the moment we became friends are what brought us together. That being said, I don't go around committing myself to year-long side-projects just because someone makes me laugh and bakes amazing desserts. I loved this story and the characters since the moment I read the initial treatment and I knew we had to do whatever it took to get it made.

JON PRICE: I thought the idea up when I was living in the "magical" Orlando, Florida (please note the sarcasm). I actually mostly liked Orlando, but there's a strange mix of synthetic fantasy and stark reality because of the several theme parks and endless stream of tourists. So I started playing with the idea of fantasy-based magic existing in our world as it exists now and how that would work. Once I had a framework for the story I enlisted Dave to help flesh it out and create some killer villains - which he's done quite nicely, as you'll see throughout the series.

CA: Keven, you're putting this book out, please share some impressions about the work and tell us how it fits into the 12-Gauge legacy.

KEVEN GARDNER: 12-Gauge has always been known for crime and action, so when I heard they wanted to pitch me a book about magic I wasn't sure if it would fit. I had been talking with Rebekah about doing something together anyway (she's such a talented artist), so I was hoping it might work. Once I read the pitch I was hooked. It reminded me of all the things I loved about the first season of Heroes, but with a splash of Harry Potter, and all set in the real-world (no costumes, alternate realities, etc.). Had it been a typical magic/fantasy thing, I would probably have passed, but this felt fresh and grounded, and it was something 12-Gauge had to put its stamp on.

Interview with the MAGUS creaative team @ Broken Frontier

BROKEN FRONTIER: To begin could you give the Broken Frontier readership a brief rundown of the Magus's premise and its main players?

JON PRICE: Magus is 'what would happen if everyone in our world could suddenly perform magic?'. Thousands of years ago everyone had magic but it was stripped away from us and locked behind a giant, magical Seal. Now most everyone has forgotten about it and just assumes magic is relegated to fantasy novels and myth. But things are starting to turn and the Seal is breaking, so magic starts leaking out and strange things begin to happen. That's about where we are when Issue 1 starts. Ben and Darius are our two leads - best friends since they were very young. Lena, who opens the book in a very dramatic fashion, is "Wild", meaning she (and a few others like her) can perform magic even though the Seal is in place.

BF: WildStorm fans will know the name Rebekah Isaacs from the current DV8: Gods and Monsters series, but readers may not be so familiar with the names of Magus co-creators Jon Price and David Norton. Could you all give us a quick potted history of your different routes into the comics biz to date?

JP: I worked in television for a while and was a video game tester before that. I've just sort of stumbled around from job-to-job wanting to write. I was working on TV pitches before Magus and when Rebekah and I met, I told her about Magus as a comic book idea and she loved it.

DAVE NORTON: I’ve always wanted to be a writer, any kind of writer, since around the 2nd grade when I realized I would never be athletic enough to be the starting small forward for the Boston Celtics. I never really got into comics as a kid as there wasn’t a comic book store for miles and I spent most of my time in libraries. However, now that I’m part of the comic book world, I’ve come to really appreciate the amount of work and effort in the world building and mythology that comic book creators go through. Those two aspects are my favorite parts of books or tv or comics, and it seems that in comics, more thought is put into mythology and world building than in any other medium right now.

REBEKAH ISAACS: I graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design, and 12 Gauge has had a great relationship with the school, including sponsoring a special elective course in which students competed to have their work featured in "The Ride." I didn't get a chance to take that course, but I was really impressed by their catalog and creative teams, and jumped at the chance to be introduced to Keven at NYCC '09. We were hoping to work together shortly after that, but almost immediately after the Con I got my first Marvel gig, and then right after I was offered DV8. But when things settled down for me and we started pitching Magus a bit later, I sent it to Keven and he loved it!
