Chip Zdarsky and Kagan McLeod preview their new sci-fi adventure series, Kaptara -- exclusive

Comments +

Among the many announcements at January’s annual Image Expo, Kaptara—a science fiction series from Chip Zdarsky(Sex Criminals) and Kagan McLeod (Infinite Kung-Fu)—emerged as one of the most interesting. Described by its creators as a “gay Saga,” the new ongoing follows a bioengineer named Keith Kanga, who ends up stranded on the Kaptara… and that means danger for Earth. Can he safely make it home? More importantly, can he figure out how to save his home? As the premise suggests, the comic promises to be a lot more than just a space adventure.

Known primarily for his art, Zdarsky is taking the writer’s seat on this project while collaborating with McLeod, a fellow Toronto illustrator who is making his return to comics. With two crazy Canadians at the helm of their own original story, you can be sure the result will be something epic, exciting, and probably a little off-beat. EW talked to Zdarsky and McLeod about their creative process, how Kaptara came to be, and whether McLeod would really be willing to draw in a reader as a cannibal Smurf. Read on for more, including the reveal of exclusive preview pages from the first issue of Kaptara, in comic stores this April.

Hence this week’s Confessional question: What do you watch/listen to/read when you’re feeling homesick?

Tell the truth: Do you click on unretouched photos of celebrities?

If so, you’ve been busy the past few weeks. More than 200 shots from a 2013 L’Oréal cosmetics campaign leaked on Feb. 18, showing Beyoncé with caked-on makeup and uneven skin, looking pretty—if not quite as flawless as the retouched version suggested. Just days before that, images surfaced from a 2013 Marie Claire Mexico and Latin America shoot, revealing Cindy Crawford posing in a bikini, her toned stomach lined with stretch marks.
