Parece que sale a la venta el número 1 (de 4) de ABRACADAVER. Y obviamente, este comic-book está dibujado por mí. Lástima que... bueno, lástimas hay muchas. Por ejemplo que el colorista y el letrista no fueron para nada de mi agrado. Pero la mayor lástima es que nunca me pagaron un peso, ni tampoco al guionista, quien para colmo trató de sacar el proyecto de la editorial, pero no hubo éxito. Y para colmo, parece que el editor va a poner (o a cagar) a otro dibujante para que termine la miniserie. Aún tengo esperanzas igualmente. Esperanza de que me pague en algún momento al menos lo que hice; de que al menos salga este primer número publicado con mi nombre, y cause un mínimo de aceptación; de que de alguna forma me acarree nuevos proyectos mas confiables. Espero...
Mientras, acá les dejo unas reseñas y comentarios (en inglés) y unos previews.
Diseños del personajes; el color fué una prueba de un colorista yanqui.

HARRY HOUDINI VS. ADOLF HITLER...
And the winner squares off against Satan!
Sound a bit over-the-top? It certainly should.
ABRA CADAVER: THE AFTERLIFE ADVENTURES OF HARRY HOUDINI is the title of my new book from Dead Dog Entertainment.If you are a fan of pulp, horror, mystery or action-adventure--I think this is the book for you!
I could blather on forever--but rather than doing that, here's what others are saying about ABRA CADAVER:
"There's no escaping this one!" – Justiniano (Artist DC’s THE CREEPER, DAY OF VENGEANCE)
"Abra Cadaver has it all; a diabolically devious plot cunningly constructedby spirited writer MacPherson and magnificently realised by the artisticthaumaturge that is Mr. Exes. Supernaturally good stuff!" - John Reppion & Leah Moore (Writers WildStorm’s WILD GIRL, ALBION)
“Abra Cadaver rocks. Dwight MacPherson's take on Harry Houdini is inspired--investigating the afterlife, Harry talks himself into a one-way ticket to hell. Mr. Exes' art is a gruesomely delightful blend of horror and cartoony. Unique story, unique art.”- Mike Baron (Writer NEXUS, PUNISHER, NIGHT CLUB)
"Love Mignola, EC Comics and Bernie Wrightson, but hate pretenders? Then Abra Cadaver is the book for you! MacPherson has put together an air-tight story filled with wit and intelligence not usually found in popular entertainment and Mr. Exes frames it all perfectly. Abra Cadaver is page after page of fun and Adventure." - Jose L. Torres (Writer Markosia's THE HUNGER)
“Dwight MacPherson has done something delightfully original which needs to be acknowledged as such by as many people as possible.”- Comixfan
