Terry Moore’s Motor Girl Launches In November… also Rachel Rising Omnibus
According to Moore, the series centers on a girl and her best friend, a gorilla. The pair work together fixing cars at a gas station in the desert, and one day, they’re approached by an alien with a damaged UFO. She helps him on his way, and word of mouth about her excellent services makes her little garage a UFO hot spot, attracting the attention of an investigator from Area 51, determined to shut her down!
There is much more to the comic, and in this Westfield-interview he tells folks:
Westfield: Motor Girl looks much lighter in tone than Rachel Rising. Was that intentional?
Moore: Yes. I can’t keep staring down the devil and dreaming about murder. I need to take a break and look at the pretty flowers, pet a dog. To make a series like Rachel Rising, you have to think nonstop about the dark topics. Here’s an example: I was standing in the aisle of a plane last week, waiting for the toilet, and I saw a man sleeping with his head back, mouth open. My thought: “someday—maybe this year—a mortician will sew your mouth shut to keep it closed during your wake. And I can picture it, I can draw it, I know the stitch. And you won’t care because you will be nothing more than a lifeless piece of yellowed meat.”
That’s how you have to think to write Rachel Rising. I’m ready to think about something else for awhile. I have to stop seeing people as an endless supply of victims. It’s time to think about life and love and hope and happiness and gorillas and aliens.
And yes… still time to pre-order. As you all know pre-ordering is key to Indy Publishers, is key to making it an instant success!
So do it now, do it today, do it with your friends, for yourself or as a gift… but DO it!! JUST DO IT!!!
And in case of Rachel Rising... unless you live in Belgium cause Belgium customs tend to rip Terry’s Omnibuses into pieces… well then you can also:
