    This isn't JMS but I wanted to share. From AWA/Upshot:

    "As empathy spreads, civilization spreads. As empathy contracts, civilization contracts...as we're seeing now.

        I like this a good deal more than the Resistance. Just feels more grounded and personal. Less of the grandiose showboating and over reliance on bombastic narration. It's good stuff.

          #3 of "The Resistance: Reborns" is up. Have I mentioned how much I'm enjoying these?

          This one has a slight echo of 'Midnight Nation' to it. Wonder/hope we'll be seeing all these folks down the road.

            Oops! Looks like I forgot to post the third chapter. And the fourth is up now, too. JMS posted:

            J. Michael Straczynski - Hang with JMS

            As most of you know, we're doing five stand-alone, bite-sized mini chapters for The Resistance that are available free online along with the first two issues of the main book. The fourth mini, "The Lost," just went online today. If you want to check these out, no subscription, no cost, not even a request for an email address, you can find them at: https://www.webtoons.com/en/challenge/the-resistance/list…

            A global disaster leaves hundreds of millions dead in its wake. Shortly after, a few thousand suddenly manifest superhuman powers. Are they harbingers of more perils to come…or Earth’s last hope?
            The full list & links to what's available online is here: https://www.webtoons.com/en/challeng...itle_no=404179

              This stuff is still so variable, I was really enjoying these, then the last one (Chapter 4) goes into long winded narration again, where JMS does an awful lot of telling and not showing. Or telling and showing the same thing. He has a really bad habit of doing this and I think he's missing a lot of the potential of the medium. It's got the same tone as the long winded (often mocked) speeches in B5. Some of those speeches are great, don't get me wrong, but in comic book format I'm a bit unsure about so much omnipresent narrator.

                Here is the Previews page with the Trade Paperback solicitation.
                It looks like it will be in the upcoming catalog.

                      If you haven't picked up this Humble Bundle yet, I just discovered two great extras. First, the 'Resistance: Reborns' short comics are included. And second, the scripts for the comics and the shorts are included! This plust the other AWA/Upshot comics makes one heck of a deal!

                        Just finished reading the first trade paperback. I don't think I knew that this was the beginning of something that may be much much bigger. It was a good start. I'll probably continue buying the trades as they get published.

                          JMS posted info and some art from the upcoming "MOTHS". The art looks *stunning*!

                            Interview with JMS and C.P. Smith on the new "Resistance: Uprising" out today. Not a bad article despite them apparantly not knowing JMS' name. https://www.gamesradar.com/the-rebor...-two-uprising/

                              JMS posted a link to the first page of the 'Moths' mini. What amazing art! Really looking forward to this!

                              This may be the most beautiful book, and the most emotional, honest story I've ever told in comics. I commend it to you without reservation.

                                Oh man, I really can't stomach this photorealistic style at all. It's so static. Yuck. Not my thing at all.
