IMAGE EXPO: Van Meter & Burchett Combine Ballet & Espionage In "Prima"

As part of Image Comics' 2016 Image Expo, Jen Van Meter and Rick Burchett announced their new series, "Prima." The series will be written by Van Meter and feature art by Burchett.

"It's an adventure/espionage/romance/thriller/comedy, about a ballet company that used to be a front for a resistance cell during World War II," Van Meter said. "Now the war is over and they're going to continue to use their ballet and espionage skills to help people in need." Van Meter praised Burchett as "one of the best artists in the world."

Burchett talked about capturing the period of the 1950s, saying that "it wasn't that hard for me since I was alive then. It's a lot of fun. There's a little bit of nudity in it. Have you ever tried to draw a slender woman with legs like a draft horse? It's tough."
