Gem #34: ALSOP MANOR
Palle here, with a little look behind the curtain on the visual side of creating Thomas Alsop. Hidden in all 8 issues are gems you probably missed. Here’s one of those gems. Alsop Manor is located in Calvary Cemetery in Queens, New York. Chris took me there on one of my trips to further lure me […]
Sneak Preview: Thomas Alsop Second Trade
Character Studies: RICHARD ALSOP
Chris: An image of a stoic Dutch figure, draped in black, walking the banks of the Newtown Creek, has filled my thoughts since discovering the Alsop Cemetery in 2011.

Bleeding Cool love for issues #1 and #2!
Our friends at Bleeding Cool have dug deep into the nature of Thomas Alsop and put up an excellent SPOILER-FILLED review of the first two issues. Miskiewicz and Schmidt’s story begins in 2011, with Thomas living in decadent indulgence. His celebrity has provided him with the means to buy enough alcohol and drugs to numb him so […]
