Jonathan Pilley from OmniComic Interviews Patrick and Pablo

Winter City is a solid indie comic from a couple of great folks that looks at one individuals quest to stop corruption in a bleak, desolate city.

There's a supernatural element to it, as one man fancies himself an incarnation of the Grim Reaper. It features the writing of Patrick and Carl Purcell, illustrations by Pablo Verdugo Munoz and colors by David Aravena Riquelme. The book is top-notch and both Pat Purcell and Munoz were gracious to answer a few questions about their work, the art and what an oligopoly is anyway.

Omnicomic: Where did you get the idea for the book?

Pat Purcell: First, let me just say thank you. Jonathan, you have been an avid and unconditional supporter of our comics since the very first issue. Words can't express how grateful I am. I wish there were more folks as willing as you.

I've always been a fan of the Grim Reaper. I believe Death to be one of the most under utilized figures in contemporary horror and to that end, I decide that I wanted to create a comic book with Death as the central antagonist. Originally, I wanted to make something supernatural and ghostly, but over time, as my interests and likes/dislikes changed, I decided that a serial killer guised as the Grim Reaper would be far more compelling.
