Preview Colin Wilson's Star Wars: Invasion

One of New Zealand's finest comics exports, Colin Wilson (currently based in Australia) has been very busy of late.
Last week saw the release of 'The Example', a comics adaptation of the award-winning play by australian playwright Tom Taylor with art by Wilson, published by Gestalt Comics based in Perth. I saw a copy of this floating around at the Fleet launch last week and it's a stunning piece of work (I understand it may be available through Diamond so keep an eye out for it). There's a great interview with them both about the project for 'The Australian' here.

They are also collaborating on a five issue arc for the new series 'Starwars: Invasion' from Dark Horse Comics in July. You can view a special 8 page prequel at now, with another preview next month leading up to the series launch.
According to Colin's great blog he also has a new 30 page Judge Dredd story for JD: The Magazine out by the time you read this (now that's just spoiling us!).
