Demo: The Twelve Original Scripts

    (AiT/Planet Lar, 2005)
™ and © 2003, 2005 Brian Wood and Becky Cloonan

In 2003, writer Brian Wood (Channel Zero) and artist Becky Cloonan created a 12–issue series named Demo. This series featured extraordinary, and some not–so–extraordinary, people usually found in comics but devoid of all the trappings and accoutrements of super–heroes. Some of the characters have supernatural powers, but rather than becoming costumed vigilantes, their lives are spent just trying to hold on to a semblance of normality. The stories are powerful, poignant and moving.

This trade paperback contains the scripts, notes, and background information that Wood provided to Cloonan to aid her in illustrating the stories. It’s an interesting behind–the–scenes look at the creative process and is a marvelous read in its own right or as a companion to the series. Becky Cloonan has also provided new illustrations of a prominent character in each story.
