Cy Dethan Talks Cancertown 2, Graeme Howard is New Artist


Cy Dethan, British comic writer, and creator of Cancertown: An Inconvenient Tooth, has revealed details on the follow-up to last year’s surprise indy hit -  Cancertown: Blasphemous Tumours.

He has announced that Stephen Downey won’t be available to illustrate the second volume, but they have a new artist, Graeme Howard, who has been hand-picked by publisher Harry Markos. Graeme’s previous work includes Dick Turpin for UK based small press publisher Time Bomb Comics.

Current artist Stephen Downey says:

“I can’t wait to see Graeme’s work on Cancertown: Blasphemous Tumours. His art fits Cy’s script perfectly and I’m looking forward to seeing what sort of glorious monstrosity their team-up creates. Believe me, there are some crazy ideas in this book and I just hope Graeme can keep his sanity until the end.”

Detham says that Cancertown 2 takes place six months after the events of Cancertown: An Inconvenient Tooth, Vince Morley is a dangerously sick man. Bugfuck is in a psychiatric hospital, sticky fingers picking through the darkest corners of the mind that brought Cancertown into existence. The crossing points between Morley’s two realities are wearing thin and all the rules are changing.

Within Cancertown, something new has appeared – a creature of horrific violence and limitless rage. The foundations are shaking and the old powers are falling, one by one. Papercut, deadliest of the Cancertown players, seeks out Morley to claim the favour he owes her – a favour that could cost him more than just his life.

Dethan also revealed that Markosia are planning a hardcover edition of Cancertown: An Inconvenient Tooth, which will be released in June, and should be available for US buyers to order through Previews.
