Writer Steve Orlando and artist Jakub Rebelka have teamed for "Namesake," a new four-issue fantasy series debuting on Nov. 9 from BOOM! Studios. Over the next few days, CBR will present an exclusive serialized first look at "Namesake" #1, along with commentary from Orlando on each section of the preview.
Here's part 4 -- pages nine and 10 from issue #1 -- and if you're looking to catch up:
Steve Orlando: "The life Jordan knew begins to unravel -- just as we learn about it, just as we see the rug, it gets pulled out from under us. I love how Jakub worked the handwriting here in the package. The feel of the package, the apartment, it's all so textured and tangible. This pseudo-reality we created together continues to grow as the true mystery of the book kicks off, and it feels thick and weighty, just like the responsibility about to hit Jordan in the face. This is all about giving weight to Jordan's choice—his relationship with Sid, his comfortable life at home. What will he be willing to give up?"
