Comic Veteran Christopher J. Priest Joins Platinum Studios’ GUNPLAY Team

Jorge Vega, the winner of Platinum Studios’ 2007 Comic Book Challenge, will receive some “backup” support from one of the most prolific writers in comics.
Gunplay is the haunting tale of Abner Meeks, a Buffalo Soldier condemned to roam the Old West with a hellish curse slung at his waist: a demonic shooting iron that forces him to kill once a day or suffer soul-searing pain. His salvation lies in earning the trust of a boy he’s never met; a boy with an agonizing secret of his own.

I’m really excited that Priest agreed to work on this project,” says creator and writer Jorge Vega, “especially after such a long hiatus from comics. It means a lot to me to be working with one of my idols.

Christopher J. Priest has written nearly every major character published by Marvel Comics and DC Comics. He was the first black man to be the editor of any comic book in North America. For several years he was the editor of the Spider-Man comic books, during which time he first hired Peter David. He edited the Impact imprint for DC Comics. He had ongoing runs writing titles such as Power Man and Iron Fist, Conan the Barbarian, The Ray, Quantum & Woody, Steel, Xero, Deadpool, The Crew and Black Panther, some of which he either co-created or substantially influenced. In 1993, he became part of the group of writers and artists that would go on to found Milestone Media.

Gunplay will be available in comic stores mid-March.
