By: Screenwriter Tony Puryear Creates “Concrete Park” for Dark Horse Presents! « Graphic Policy http://www.readaboutcomics.com/2012/01/02/dark-horse-presents-7/comment-page-1/#comment-125059 Thu, 09 Feb 2012 00:01:33 +0000 http://www.readaboutcomics.com/?p=1970#comment-125059 […] Concrete Park is a dark and provocative near-future story. It takes place in a turbulent mega-city on a distant desert planet (think Cairo or Rio in space). Young human exiles from Earth must fight to make a new world there. They are “young, violent and ten billion miles from home.” In its ambitious scope, it resembles nothing so much as George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series, but with favelas and aliens, cops and cyborgs, ghettos and gangs, instead of castles and armies. Concrete Park was cocreated by Puryear and his wife, actress Erika Alexander (Living Single, Déjà Vu), and her brother, writer Robert Alexander. Puryear handles the writing and art chores on the book, and in a refreshing twist for someone known as a writer, it’s his art that has drawn the most initial acclaim.

I’m Tony Puryear, I’m a screenwriter in LA (“Eraser”, the upcoming “Fahrenheit 451”) and Concrete Park is my first comics work. I’m happy Mike Richardson and Dark Horse took a chance on a new creator like me, and I’m very happy if you found the art enjoyable. Frank Miller said something once that stuck with me: “Our job is ‘cartooning’. We’re not trying to make photographs; our job is to make interesting marks on paper to tell a story.”

The story of Concrete Park, both in Los Angeles and on the planet with the two suns, is going to take some interesting turns. I hope you’ll stay tuned!
