The third writer that is contributing to Blood and Oil is Cy Dethan, a British writer who began his comics career in 2006 on the Starship Troopers: Extinction Protocol strip for Mongoose Publishing.
In 2007, Cy was hand-picked to take over the reins of Markosia’s flagship ongoing series, Starship Troopers. He has subsequently written several creator-owned titles for Markosia, including Slaughterman’s Creed, The Indifference Engine and White Knuckle.
Cy’s first creator-owned book, Cancertown: An Inconvenient Tooth, was a major independent hit and a sequel, Cancertown: Blasphemous Tumours, was released in November 2012.
Recently, he has joined the writing team of the Unseen Shadows transmedia project. Before turning to comics, Cy was an award-winning freelance copywriter and editor. Prior to that he was a professional magician and, quite frankly, he’d rather not talk about that…
Cy’s story “The Final Piece of Me” picks up immediately after “Metal” and centres around Izobel Vice as she encounters a rogue grinder out for revenge.
We’re big fans of Cy’s writing here and stoked to have him on board for Metal Made Flesh: Blood and Oil
